The Delicacy Of The Dumpster

Recommended Posts

When I first saw the shipping container, I thot, "A battlefield made with fifty of those and a crane would be beyond cool."

Imagine a gang war or a drug bust among those.

 

Or a supernatural monster stalking there.

 

Maybe superhero battle, one of the hulk types actually lifting one of those? ( or a dumpster of course).

 

If you let your imagination run wild for a while these things are very useful.

 

I was thinking about a diorama with a shipwreck and the goroloth.

Now I suddenly realise that a sunken container, all rusty would also be nice.

 

Oh well.. part of the hobby, pondering about all the possibilities.

I sure hope there is an afterlife, else I will never get to get everything done

Cargo went overboard, all rusty now.

An octopus inhabits it now, surrounded by fish.

 

The door is cracked open through the pressure.

Goods spilled out.

 

Goroloth/sharks/kraken/insert sea monster makes sure no diver will ever get this loot.

Theres a lot of different dumpster manufacturers and many have several different models.

I see Reapers as being one of the larger ones.Attachment-1_zps9020abfc.jpg

I like the fact that Reaper started making such miniatures.

 

Dumpster, Container, Telephone Booth.

 

Did anyone realise the NOT Tardis could be used as a regular telephone booth btw?

It occurred to me, but phone booths are kinda passe, unless you're playin' a superhero game...

Then sink them off to form more underwater scenery, maybe an unfortunate mobster still inside.

...regrettably, you'd have to hollow out the booth, cut out the windows, and install the unfortunate mobster inside. Lot of work, there. On the other hand, it'd be a heck of a display piece in the aquarium -- skeletal mobster with fedora, grinning eternally out of the phone booth...

And if I were diving and ran across a phone booth with a dead mobster in it at ninety feet under, my first euphemistic thought would be, "Daaaaang. Who did HE tick off? Mostly they just NORMALLY go with cement overshoes. THIS guy locked him in a PHONE BOOTH!"

Mobster is on the phone in the boot.

 

Helicopter from rival gang flies over, picks up the booth with a crane thingy.

 

Drops booth and mobster in ocean.

Now I have a mental picture of a giant hermit crab using the TARDIS as a shell.

And I'm thinking of rules for portapotties in a modern or future game. What's the chance they'll explode when hit with a grenade or energy weapon? Or does that blue gunk they put in there somehow neutralize the methane?

      I haven’t been feeling inspired this week; too much outside world creeping in, I suppose, but I did finish up one little scenery project for my “scenic bases” upgrade.  I got the Mantic Terrain Crate walls as part of the Kickstarter a while back.  They look well enough, but are very thin and there is no way they will stand by themselves on a table (to allow them to be reconfigurable).  I decided the thing to do with them was to group them into a couple of basic enclosures. Last fall I got a buch of irregularly shaped masonite scenery bases with beveled edges, so I sorted around to find ones that the rectangles of the walls would fit.
       
      Having a bit of extra space at one corner, I planted a few trees to give it an organic feel.
       
      Prince August true (small) 25mm figures are shown for a scale estimate.  These would be pretty petite walls against Reaper figures, I think.
       

       

       
      I considered adding crops or headstones, but decided that it was best to leave the interior fairly open to allow deployment of troops on 60mm square multiple figure bases.

      While I love painting miniatures, painting terrain pieces is also fun! I started these two this month and finished just yesterday. I’m considering getting these two pieces again and do a desert themed set.

      Story
      Hello and thank you for taking a look at this campaign! I'm a digital sculptor from Germany and this is my first 3D related campaign. I'm excited to share my models with you!
      Mythology has always had a special place in my heart and I wanted to make something that others can be a part of as well! 
      This Kickstarter provides a range of popular mythological beasts, scatter, props and scenery for you to print at home on your 3D printer. Use them for your tabletop gaming, in your dioramas or paint them - it's up to you!
        Why digital files and no physical goods? I'm still somewhat new to the whole miniature scene so I don't feel comfortable enough to offer physical objects yet. This is something that will definitely happen in the future, once I had the time to establish more contacts and can assure great quality.
      What will you get? You will receive .STL files of the miniatures and props listed below. Additionally, I will be sharing tips for printing the models and my workflow in a PDF for trouble-free printing, which might be useful if you're still new to 3D printing.
      Check, check and check!
      All files have been checked for issues and test printed on my LCD resin printer Everything is prescaled for uniformity Tips for optimal printing & personal workflow as PDF included   Commercial license? Want to sell copies of the models online or in your brick & mortar store? No problem! Just choose the 'Commercial License' reward tier and you're good to go! Please note that this license only allows the sale of physical copies.
        This campaign includes a collection of popular mythological beasts. All miniatures were sculpted with great attention to detail that translates well into your 3D printed models. All minis come with their own base that fit on a standard D&D dungeon map. 
      The miniatures are prescaled for easier use and uniformity. Most monsters are 'large' so they're scaled two fit into a 2"2" square. Of course you're free to rescale them to your needs! 
      Here's a list of the monsters you'll receive:
      Basilisk (large) Cerberus (large) Cockatrice (small) Cyclops (large) Fenrir (large) Hippocampus (large) Pegasus (large) Sphinx (large) Unicorn (large) Wyvern (large)  Photos of the printed miniatures can be found further down the page!
          This pre-prepared version of the wyvern allows you to print it BIG! It is sliced into 5 pieces and keyed for easy assembly! Prescaled to around 23 cm (ca.9 in), this wyvern is a real eyecatcher. 
        Photo of the printed, assembled and primed Wyvern The Wyvern was printed on an Anycubic Photon S It measures about 23 cm (ca. 9 in) in length

      This is the Guard House / Toll Booth from Kiernan Billings’ Wizards Tower Expansion Set. IIRC this was printed at a 150 micron layer height using my Anycubic i3 Mega printer. I tried smoothing out the print ridges using Polycrylic before priming. It didn’t seem to make a difference on the print lines. 
       
      This is a two piece print (building and roof) with a simple paintjob of dry brushing, washes, and matte coating. I think it turned out great for the game table. If I wanted something for display, I think I could get the quality necessary on my UV resin printer at higher resolution .  The photo doesn’t show the bluish purple of the roof very well, but this is generally a good representation of the work. I have not decided if I will permanently attach the roof or not. 
       


       
      Now I need to paint the couple dozen pieces I have printed of the Wizards Tower and Bridges. 
       
      C&C welcome.
       
      -Mike
