Custom 3D Printed Dwarf Paladin

Recommended Posts

What material did you use? I have heard some of the materials are as brittle as dried spaghetti. Also, can we get a side by side of some reapers and heroforge?

Stuff like PLA isn't all that brittle, really. It's not as flexible as ABS, but unless you really abuse it it won't break easily. 

That is assuming that the printer that was used is correctly set up. Print at too low temperature and all bets are off...

(A lot of the bad rep 3D printed objects have gotten is from poorly handled temperatures in the early days)


I'm printing DragonLock terrain pieces (2x2" modules by Fat Dragon Games), and I print mine with 0.8mm thick sidewalls, 0.5mm top and bottom and no internal support structures. I'm pretty certain it will hold up what most gamers will expose them to of abuse.



I just give the stuff a coating of Vallejo gray primer before adding the acrylics paints.

      Hi everyone, here's another 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior. The original version this time. This model was sculpted by Tre Manor.

      In pursuit of my goal, here is another Gnoll that I finished painting last night. This 77234, Boneflail female Gnoll Cleric was sculpted by Tre Manor.
      In spite of their devotion to Yeenoghu, few Gnolls have any interest in ritual and there is few clerics or shamans to be found among the savage packs. Gnolls would sometimes summon demons to fight alongside them.

      Another quick tabletop paint job completed over the weekend.  I think this guy is from KSIV, @TGP told me he is a dwarven hero.  I used some basic techniques: basecoat, drybrush, and various washes.

      Painted up this cool dwarf.  Went for an icy look and I'm really happy with how he turned out.  Critiques and advice are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!
