What's the name of this ?

 

In other news, I've been half following the launch of the anycubic dlp kickstarter...  biggest takeaway is that the mods are having to work overtime on their facebook group to shut down all the hate they're getting over the fact that it crashed kickstarter.....  

Worse hate then Elegoo got for the jupiter!????

Not sure, but I've seen people calling this a total scam and a rip off because they were on the kickstarter page when it launched but when they clicked the button to pay it sat there for forever then timed out and then all the early birds were gone.  And that's the ones the mods have left up and just locked and not deleted....
Though, the general attitude seems to have turned much more positive around after their announcement today where they were working to try to do something for the people who could prove they were on at launch (screenshots) and weren't able to get in, as well as doubling the number of early birds and upgrading people automagically based on backer number.

Liz the tiefling Librarian, from Bite the Bullet.

 

It is one of their Exotics.

 

Two versions, Exotic and EXXotic. This time I liked the one in her kit, not out of it. I want her for a tiefling with succubus ancestry.

 

I printed her small, she is such a ME miniature. ::): Odds of my playing her in a Grump game? 100%. And rising. ::P:

Strangely, the painted clothed version of Liz on the MMF site is... pretty much as graphic as the topless version.

 

The Auld Grump - she is wearing a wet blouse.

After decades of wanting a mini for a vardo, for the last few years they have been popping up like mushrooms after a rainstorm - and all better than I could have hoped for.

 

What rotten luck!

 

 

If the ladies had pointed ears, they would look very much like the elves in one of the stories I made with my friend, or at least like the elves from the other continent. Have you found any elven gypsies in your search of 3D prints?

Tell me about it - this is coming up in Iain Lovecraft's latest KS Tale of Two Cities.

Yah I like Ian's products. I'll probably look for those when it goes retail, considering I do dip into Ravenloft when I run games (my all-time favorite setting)

*EDIT* The birthday mini that most caught my eye -

Megan printed both this version and the birthday suit version.

 

Amazingly, it was this version that she had painted! :lol:

I really like BtB offerings. I've cut back on my Patreon spending + I'm kinda getting bored with em,  but I may have to give them a shot before I bow out of backing stuff in Patreon entirely.

Those are almost all wearing coverings over their ears give them elf eyebrows. ::):

 

Grump pointed out last night that Liz doesn't have to be a librarian. She could be working in a book store.

 

SUCH a ME!

This is kinda me lately.  I like what's being made on the patreon but I went nearly 6 months of just collecting files while printing less than 10% of them.  I'll spend less money if I just wait and get the files I actually on MMF when I'm ready to print it....

Started up printing things the last few days. Trying a new filament so working on tweaking settings. Decided to fool with jerk to see if I could reduce print times while still keeping decent quality. I wanted to print out a handful of Battlemechs because I didn't buy enough in the kickstarter. :rolleyes: I've got a mild obsession with owning all the options for my projects and there were a few Inner Sphere mechs I wanted. Some printed ok but one had bad delaminating problems. Lots of tweaking and several failed attempts ranging from weak, low res prints to a model that turned into sliced bread as I tried to remove the supports. Started trying other stls and got some fast settings that are printing pretty nice models, even 6mm infantry and tanks (more WW2 forces coming sometime). Then I tried that pesky Whitworth mech again. Got feet to the ankles and a cm diameter round blob of what looks like chewing gum that was dangling from the extruder. Worst print yet. I can make a complete ok model out of all the parts I have but it's frustrating not knowing why this one stl won't print.

 

Need to work more on doing custom supports too. For some minis the supports Cura give me are a pain to remove.

While pretending I was going to organize and inventory my files I looked at my Titan Forge "objects shared with me" tab on MMF.

  • Nov 2020 $59.99
  • April 2021 $100.00
  • Aug 2021 $150.00

I don't think I got 3 times as much stuff in August as I did in November, so that's some pretty good inflation on their retail pricing.  It also makes me feel that if I don't back it on Patreon I'm probably not picking it up later...

Yup it's ridicilous, if you would like just one of the minis in a set it's worth subscribing for.

But we were in for the dark elves, this time. The full version, with the terrain.

Is it worth the price for the Dark Elves, Megan ?

I'm seriously thinking of getting this for my group when they run through the Temple of Elemental Evil.....
