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.

      Tor Skullcrusher,
      dwarven tattooed monk
      A Thrym Project  :: A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend.
       
      Started working on character of mine who is a Dwarven Tattooed Monk.  As I mentioned, I created him using Hero Forge, downloaded the .STL, and had him printed elsewhere.
       

      I enjoy using the interface on Hero Forge so far.  I have designed and purchased 3 STLs and 2 minis.
       
      Once I received the print, I made a manual adjustment to his skull.  An ironic happenstance, given the character's name.
       
      Tor, being a dwarf and confident in his skills against ogres was going toe-to-toe with a rather large ogre with a great club.  This is not something unusual so far.  The party had been exploring an ogre controlled encampment searching for an item and information for a tribe of centaurs nearby.  Unfortunately, Tor suffered a critical hit from the Ogre Champion's club and took a lot of damage when he was already near unconsciousness.  He effectively had his namesake applied to his own noggin.
       

       
      So I removed a large segment of his skull by the patch to approximate the results of his disfigurement once the party ... eventually ... managed to raise him from the dead.  His demeanor and appearance was never pleasing to begin with and now it's even worse.
       
      I painted on a primer coat first so I could see where I was removing plastic better.  The majority of the work was done with a rounded mini-file as well as a small gouge chisel.  I cleaned up the space with a small sanding twig.
       
      For a color scheme, his pallid skin is Reaper's Fair Skin.  The coat is Army Painter's D&D Vampire Garments with Army Painter D&D Mouldy Wash.  I put the wash over his skin and his hand wraps as well.  The coat's trim is just the Vampire Garments again.
       

       

       
      For the tans I used Reaper's Desert Sand, Desert Stone, Desert Tan, and Woodland Brown; or some combination thereof.  The eye patch, the lining of the coat and the belt are Army Painter's D&D Wraith Black as well as the tattoos on his right and left forearms and the side of his head.
       
      His boots started out as Reaper's Coal Black but I need to reshake the bottle before going back to it.
       
      Yes, I know the pics and the paint wash are a little dark, but the next set of pics will be better lit.  I am planning on layering his highlights up to brighter points. 
       
      More work to come soon.
       
      Stay Tuned and Safe.  Enjoy.

      I struggled with this for a year but really learned a lot about blending and lighting by working on this.

      Hello everyone, I completed this one today. 03892, Dark Dwarf Striker is a Dark Heaven Legends model that was sculpted by Bobby Jackson. The other models of this series are on my to paint list. I bought the metal versions, plus two enlarged Bones Black models.
