This year's Christmas present to myself was a Sonic Mini 4k printer. I've done a few runs now and promised a pic of a painted mini at some point. Gardain here was a bit of a failure as it turns out there were a few problems with the pre-supports. Still, he's 99% ok which means he's good enough to use as an example, but also that I don't care enough to paint to a high standard.
So with that in mind, he was painted with a thin layer of primer through the airbrush, a slightly thinned basecoat, and then a few washes. I.e. the point is to show off how much detail the printer can do, how visible the layer lines are, etc, not how well I can (or can't) paint. He is a 32mm scale dwarf, which means he is a little taller than a Reaper dwarf, but not quite as tall as a Reaper human.
The very bottom of this gauntlet pancaked, but you can only really see it if he is upside down.
Yup, that's a hair support. The presupport was at too low of an angle so it bonded to the figure.
Btw, those eyes are tiny. His right eye is really bad because the arm blocks coming in from below, the sculpted bushy eyebrow makes any high angle impossible, and he has a big nose. Jab straight in and hit where you aim! In fact, they are so small that I can't even tell I painted them at arm's length. If you skipped them to get him on the table no one would notice.
And there you have it, my first [painted] 3D print.
Every Infernal Army needs its footsoldiers. Today I have Legion Devils, or Merregon as they are known in 5E. There's a lot of variation in lore with these guys between editions, so it really opened up the door for interpreting them how I wished. So here's a handful of Legion Devils.
Not the most impressive of paintjobs, but they work for filling out a horde. I am interested in revisiting them with my more recent TMM painting technique, so maybe I'll add to their ranks soon.

I really like reinterpreting the creatures that exist in D&D lore. I have all of the models, and more that I want, and it's nice finding ways to utilize the ones I didn't have a use for. I also love seeing a group of cohesive minis coming together. What else does my infernal army need?
I just cannot get this mini to come out the way I want. This is my second attempt, and I got just a stuck as the first time. I finally decided to just finish it and call it done.
Reaper Bones Spirit of the Forest (SKU 77184)
My LFGS had a painting contest on its FB Star Wars Legion page a bit ago. 2 weeks to paint up a squad of at least 4 figures. As creativity counted, I decided to set my white and black paint aside and paint something besides Stormtroopers.
I took a look through the Rebel scum I'd acquired and really like the poses and sculpts for the Rebel Veterans.
I'd planned to do the whole box of 7 figures, but (as anyone who's seen my WIPs knows) I'm not the fastest painter. I'm lucky if I can get one figure done in two weeks.
So I quickly decided to just do 4 figures for the contest.
I liked how they came out, and they did get "best painted" in the contest, so I guess they are alright.
It then took me another 6 weeks to finally finish the last 3 figures (see? Sloooooow.)
But the whole unit is finally done.
Should probably read the rules on them sometime soon.....
Now back to all those Stormtroopers.
Look at that winning smile! He wants you to come for dinner....
Reaper Bones Burrowing Horror (SKU 77372)
I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
