Looking for DOOM Miniatures (painted or not)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Years ago I had some of the DOOM miniatures. The classic PC game really changed my life and I still play it today online with people.

 

I used to own the Baron of Hell, Lost Soul, Doom Marine, Cyberdemon, and a couple of others. Most of them are now lost or were sold. :(

 

I am looking to build a complete set of them now. They can be painted, primed, or just plain as I intend to have the entire set painted. If you have any that you are interested in selling, please contact me.

 

email is [email protected]

 

Thanks again! I know they hard to find so am hoping someone here has some they would like to sell. Please let me know if this is the right area of the forum.

This is the right area, pretty much, but anyone at Reaper will tell you that since losing the Doom license, Reaper cannot legally make or sell that line any more, much to my personal sorrow.

 

Your best bet, frankly, is Ebay.

And it has been a while since i have seen a full set, or all the components therein, on any auction or trade site.

I have an original Cyber Demon, trademarked 1996 underneath, never painted. I'd say it's pretty darn good condition. You won't believe me but I'll try: I was looking today on eBay to sell it. First time I almost tried. I guess it's not permitted to talk about this here, so there must be a way for you to contact me, I'm sure.

He says he has two already. I'll put mine back on the shelves here where it's been trying to shoot me for the last +/- 20 years or so hehehehe.

 

My problem is I don't know it's worth, there's an auction at ebay with a "buy it now" at 149$US (with some wear and paint wear too). Mine was never painted and is in mint condition (english is my 2nd language) w/e mint means exactly. But I'm also afraid having 2 of them will lower it's/their value.

 

What I need is the opinion of someone who's an expert. And You know what? Thinking about it, It's been here for that long, it can stay at the same place for another 20 years!

For miniatures it can only be mint condition if its still in the blister. Its hard to price miniatures, it all depends on if anyone is actually looking for what you are selling when you sell it. There are a few miniatures out there that everyone is always looking for like the GW metal (lead) giant from the 80's that will bring between $700 - $1,000 on eBay. The Doom miniatures are tougher because they can fall off the radar, or you just miss when everyone is looking. I once sold a RCon 1 Sophie and only got $20 for it at a time when it was going for over $60 on a regular basis. My timing was bad. Watch the buy it now auction and see if he actually manages to sell it at that price. EBay auctions are a crap shoot, you set a price and hope it does well, I typically start items pretty well so it looks very attractive and then just depend on the competitive nature of humans in general to drive the price up. I have been pretty successful at that. There is no "this will work" answer for you. If Doom is on everyone's radar it will do well, if its not you risk letting it go for a trifling amount. You can protect yourself a bit by starting low and setting a reserve price. Just be aware that when eBay charges its fee it will be based on the reserve price not your starting price.

Also if you do an advanced search on EBay you can get information on items offered in the past month or so, so you can see what prices something sold at and did not sell at. It may be less of a factor for something rare like that, but eBay sale prices are also influenced by the seller. Sellers with lots of sales and high ratings get higher prices. So if you know an active ebayer asking the to post it on your behalf could boost the end price.

It annoys the hell out of me when an auction has a low starting price, but it has a reserve price. It annoys me to the point where I usually won't even watch an item regardless of how much I want it. This is especially true if the starting price is super low (like a $1), but the reserve price is $40+.

It stinks like false advertising to me. If you are selling an item and won't accept anything less than $40 for it, start the bidding there.

End Rant Mode

 

This is not meant to be an attack on anyone here, just venting. And the prices above were just pulled out of someplace.

And I've never actually sold anything on ebay, so this is just a buyer's viewpoint.

I hear ya, but you should bid anyway. Sometimes a seller will let it go for under reserve if they still like the price, and some will purposely set an overly high reserve so they can see what the state of traffic is at the moment. Nobody wants to wind up letting a normally pricey item go for pennies if it happens to be a slow week.

 

Traffic in the mini categories has been getting increasingly abysmal, but you can score yourself some sweet deals by bidding on these if the seller decides the final price is still acceptable. By not bidding, you might just be letting somebody else get away with the sweetness.

 

With less traffic the prices don't change as dynamically as they used to, so a lot of mini sellers have taken to getting creative in order to figure out a proper value without taking big risks (the rolling, reducing, relisting BIN is another tactic). I've been making out like a bandit lately, but six years ago I had to practically fist-fight five other people just to get a pack of golems. These days it sometimes feels like I'm the only living creature in Ral Partha town, hanging out with tumbleweeds.

I don't like reserve bid auctions either and I never do them. However, it is an option.

      Good day everyone, I've been working on a diorama display for some time now and I thought some of you may like the see my progress. I used AutoCad for my sketches and Inventor to build the 3D model. Then I used Blender to texture the model and Slicer to generate de code for my Prusa printer. The following pictures are the steps I went through so far. It’s my first big project. It's taking long but it's a learning experience. Let me know what you think about it so far.
       
      The first image is a screenshot of the final model in Inventor.

       
      Some sketches in AutoCad software.

       
      Floor part in Invetor software.

       
      Generating the code of the floor in Prusa Slicer software.

       
      I got a printing error while printing the floor. The plastic filament and I had to stop the print.

       
      On the next picture, we can see how the parts are on the inside. There is some supports but most of the part is empty to save on printing time and material.

       
      I decided to print the remining floor tiles individually to salvage what I had already been printing. I then glued each tile on the base.

       
      I had another printing error on the column, and I had the print another one.

       
      The column was printed at the highest level of quality my Prusa i3 MK3S can print, which is at a 0.05mm of precision.

       
      The arch was also printed at 0.05mm.
       
      The level of detail is amazing. Even the ring was printed flawlessly without support.

       
      Here’s a screenshot of the wall assembly after I completed texturing it in Blender.

       
      Here’s a screenshot of the wall assembly in Slicer. I generated the code with supports to make sure the door arch would be print perfectly.

       
      It looks perfect like this, so I didn’t see a problem coming.

       
      Some parts of mu model were not right, there were some gaps. The software filled these gaps with support material, so when I see the issue, I decided not to stop the printing session. The support material is showing in drak green the the simulation.

       
      After, when I generated the code without support, I could clearly see the gaps. I think this happened because there were errors, holes I didn’t correct or masking I didn’t remove, on the model I imported from Blender. I will need to investigate farther.

       
      See the result after I removed all the support. Removing the support takes forever by the way. I’ll try to avoid supports if possible, in the future.

       
      Here’s a picture of the wall. It took 40 hours to print only and probably another 40 hours to build, texture and clean the model. I still need to fill the gaps the Greenstuff.

       
      Here are all the parts I printed for this project.

       
      And, all the parts together. I haven’t glue anything yet. There is still some sanding and cleaning to do. I will paint each part separately.

       
      I patched the gaps with liquid Green Stuff.

       
      Closeup of the first layer of liquid Green Stuff.

       
      I converted a 02712 Eye Best from Reaper Miniatures. This is the pewter version of model that was sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I added eye stalks from the 03440 Creature Components II, also from Reaper.

       

       

       
      The Eye Best will be pinned on the wall and the door. All the adventurers I'll be displaying on the diorama are from Reaper Miniatures Dungeon Dwellers brand. From left to right; 07012 Caerindra Thistlemoor, 07004 Stitch Thimbletoe, 07002 Baran Blacktree and 07008 Luwin Phost.

       

       
      The models can be moved from a recess to another to allow different layouts.

       

       
      More to come soon!

      The MapForge software (which runs on Mac & Windows) was designed to create customized tactical-scale battlemaps for RPGs, and is already supported by an impressive 80+ mapping content Add-Ons (12 of which are free!) covering all major game genres. Maps produced with the software can either be printed for use at the gaming table, or used in virtual tabletop software such as Roll20 or Fantasy Grounds.
       
      But despite the wealth of fantasy mapping content already available, GMs have been clamoring for even more. So we've got some great new content lined up, and are raising funds to cover the porting/development costs.
       
      Click here or on the image below to check out the latest Kickstarter campaign for MapForge, which just launched two days ago.
       

       
       
      Note that the software itself is already developed and available (though a new version is due out later this month); this crowdfunding campaign is only to fund the development/porting of the new fantasy-genre mapping content.
       
      Fairly quick delivery of rewards is expected (August), and there are no shipping costs involved, since it's all digital downloads.
       
      Campaign launched on: May 22, 2019
      Campaign ends on: June 17, 2019
       
      Some boardgamers and wargamers were quick to catch on that the software can also be used to produce custom game boards or tiles for games such as Myth, Descent, HeroQuest, Aliens, Skull Tales, and many others.

      Does anyone use some sort of software to keep track of their miniature collections? With pictures and/or searchable tags?
       
      Anyone in the hobby for a while, and who invested in Bones (and many other miniature) Kickstarters; Warhammer armies; Heroclix armies; individual or box sets at your FLGS or online store, etc. has accumulated so many that they tend to forget what exactly they own anymore.
       
      I know I went over the 1000 individual miniature mark after Bones 2. And with Bones 4 around the corner, it keeps growing alarmingly fast. And I know I'm not the only one.
       
      Sure for the Kickstarters miniatures, I can always go back to the original campaign page and look up the images. But there certainly must be a simple application that would do the same job as Reaper's tag search, but without requiring coding skill.
       
      I think my ideal format would be something that would show: Picture; name; company; manufacturer code (if available); sculptor name (if available); and any amount of tags (male - fighter - sword - elf - bow), and then filter the results.
       
      I know it can be done; I just don't know how.
       
      I know there are image organization software, movie collection software, comic book collection software, music collection software, etc. But haven't found anything more generic for miniatures.
       
      February 2019 Update: I'm taking the Excel route afterall.

      Not sure who's doing the casting but Bethesda is reissuing the original Reaper Doom minis. The news release states they are being cast from the original tooling. Google bethesda doom-reaper-miniatures-figures for more info, the only link I saw was a preorder page.
