I did a quick version of this dumpster. There is a photo of the dumpster pre-graffiti, and pre-distress in WIP here.
It only needs to be sealed and glued- so now's the time to make any final suggestions.
I decided to go light on graffiti, though it could use more.

 

Doing bubble lettering was much harder than I thought it would be. I found a handy tutorial on Youtube. I had a general idea of what I was doing, having worked on a documentary for a mural program with a local community centre... but that was 5+ years ago, so I needed a refresher.

That said, I'm not sure how well I blended the 3 blues I used, or how visible the force was.

 

Graffiti:

 

Stage Right

CZP = ChiZine. A local small publisher of horror and dark fiction. I used to intern there a long time ago.

Lexo = Me

 

Under the lid

PIA = Paranormal Investigations Association. A reference to Ian Roger's Blacklands stories

 

Top/Lid

Anarchy symbol = Gotta have one of those, right?

BFM = Boyfriend Material, another band I was in that you probably haven't heard unless you like obscure garage punk that's never been officially released.

 

Stage Left

Bitter City = An old band I was in that you wouldn't have heard.

88's = something quick and random. I recently watched Kill Bill so...

A brief hijack:

 

I got one of these last year at Reapercon, and at one point wandered around looking at dumpsters seeking inspiration and ideas. I took several phone pictures of particularly interesting looking dumpsters.

 

At one point, I noticed someone looking at me funny.

 

Suddenly, my mind flashed into a parallel reality in which I was sitting in a little room explaining to police officers why I thought this dumpster was so fascinating that I had to take a picture of it...

Cool.

 

I've painted one myself, and it is part of my diorama in wording ( WIP Street Violence if you want some inspiration).

My version made the store to my surprise.

 

 

It's a great versatile model.

 

Can't wait to see how you will paint it.

I used Google. 'Twas very effective.

I'm not sure I understand

 

Bump for paint colors.

As a former battalion anti-terrorism / force protection officer I probably would have contacted the MPs and counter-intelligence personnel if it had been on post.

It looks pretty convincingly like a rusty, old dumpster.

 

I'm not sure I can call that "beautiful", but it's very well done, and a great terrain piece!

      Ordered Ma'al Drakar to play the role of Tiamat in my Rise of Tiamat campaign I'm currently running. (Icons of the realm Tiamat is just to small IMHO)
       
      Having just received it in the mail I'm finally understanding the scale of the project I have Doomed myself to. Lol
       
      I was wondering if people had tips on mold line removal for pieces this large, what you suggest for Gap filling between all the assembled pieces, should I prime before assembly, and if there is a best way (or horribly wrong way) to pin all the pieces together.

      Hello again forum family, I keep my purple period rolling on :D
      This time wanna share with you my version of Eilluvasheth. Beingi n my purple phase the dominant color is purple, and what's better than a gold armor to complement it?
      So I've tried to paint it in NMM to challenge me as NMM is out of my comfort zone. Still I'm trying to figure out where to place the shines and to maximize the contrast, but in the end I'm pretty happy of her, also considering that this lady is full of tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny details 
      Also i'm trying to pump the shadows instead of the hi-lights to maximize the purple contrast, just to avoid it to look pink.

      Hope you'll like her :)

      Now, nipples are covered in armor, but to avoid mods to delete the pics, I'll link the front one.

      Hi-Res Front Picture
      Hi-Res Back picture



      As always every c&c is more than welcome.
      Thank you for watching

      Hi everyone, here's another Dungeon Dwellers model. 07012, Caerindra Thistlemoor was sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I painted it with Reaper’s MSP acrylics, shaded with Citadel inks, used Vallejo Acrylic Matt Varnish and 3D printed the base. Her left eye is not as sharp as I'd like it to be, she seems to have a black eye, I will need to fix this.

      Good day everyone, here are some pictures of my latest Dungeon Dwellers sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I painted 07008, Luwin Phost the Wizard Reaper’s MSP acrylic paint, I shaded with Citadel inks, sealed with Vallejo Acrylic Matt Varnish and 3D printed the base. It was a very fun model to work on, with all the right gear for the adventure.

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.
