3d printed Hero Forge mini

Recommended Posts

So I painted this one for a friend to use as his goliath fighter in our dnd campaign.

It was a quick and easy paint, since he asked me to keep it simple. I like how it turned out considering the printing quallity :winkthumbs:

Also, the blade of his original sword broke of, so I replaced it with a warhammer empire greatsword blade ::D:

Nice looking. I've got a Hero forge figure myself to paint up for one of my players. She opted for the premium quality, it looks nice but I haven't applied any primer yet to really see it (black plastic).

 

Again, great looking paint & nice fix wit the sword.

Thank you! This one was actually bought as a 3d stl file and then printed locally, hence the mediocre quallity of print! ::D:

Still, It grew on me during the whole process of rebasing, fixing and painting, and I believe that the paintjob made it look better and now it is one of my dearest minis^_^

      I haven’t picked up a brush these past two weeks, so I wanted to do something this morning.  Since I spent the whole day yesterday tracking down some partly finished 1/72 medieval polearm men, I naturally did something else. 
       
      Last year I showed the start of my urban fantasy  project.  I’ve added a few miscellaneous figures (like last year’s Gencon Reaper preliminary speed paint entry), but I’ve been stalled for a while.  Today was my day to unstall, a least a little bit.
       


       
      Leon, on the left, is a “Bones 91010 Houngan”.  Lucia is a Hero Forge figure, of an as-yet-unnamed Fae species.  (I used the bovine legs and the long fae ears.)  I feel better now that I’ve gotten something done this month.  
       
      (The mat, by the way, is from Frontline Games.)

      So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.

      So here is one of two converted Kang, Half-Orcs (02514) I've done.  Pretty sure I posted the other one around here somewhere...maybe I'll try to dig it up later for a side-by-side. 
       
      Anyway, here goes:  
       
      Kang Half-Orc converted to carry a Reaper Bow in his left hand  and a battleaxe in his right (the plastic Bones 3 weapon sprues).  Also has a shield (a GW bit from a really old Brettonian knight) and a GW quiver (Mordheim / Empire free company).   Shield painted purple and yellow because I like color and I get bored painting "realistic" neutrals & darks & such.  As always, my mini photography skills are complete butt thanks in part to using a really cheap light box and a really cheap camera phone.  
       
      99% reaper paints:  Olive triad mixed with scholar flesh, pure black and white, woodland brown, ashen brown, white metal triad, various washes. 
       
      This mini actually has kind of a weird story.  
       
      This mini represents my character Zarkosh Bowyer in a short Wildemount campaign.  This campaign is being played 100% online thanks to COVID-19, so he is 100% unnecessary.  Same goes for another mini I painted (Duke Gerard in Bones and Metal) which was for a DIFFERENT 100% online campaign.  But that's only part of the backstory. 
       
      I actually BOUGHT this miniature back in like 2004.  I bought two of him - my friend & roommate and I decided to play Barbarian brothers from the same tribe.  I converted and painted mine to carry a war hammer and a shield.  My roommate never got around to doing anything with his, and so it went back in my "Someday" box.  

      For sixteen years. 

      Anyway, I finally got around to doing something with the mini - hopefully, Zarkosh does better in this campaign than the previous character incarnating the mini did in his!  
       
      May come back and tidy up some edges & half-tones, may not.  Don't know how much more time I want to give this one.  Probably won't get TONS better than it is now, so here we go.

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
       
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

       
      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.
       


       
      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.
