Aru's Sci-Fi Prints and Paints

Recommended Posts

Putting my new Photon through its paces printing some Heroforge sculpts.


The halfling operative is actually a mash-up of two Heroforge sculpts in Tinkercad. (Why can't Heroforge let you have just a single cyberarm?)


Didn't think to photograph her till I had the primer on:




The first print of the gnome solarion didn't have enough supports on the arm with the fireball, so after cleaning the resulting lump out of the vat and trying again with more supports, here she is, supports and all:

Took the supports off the gnome solarion, cured her under sunlight, and filed off the remainder of the supports:





Base coat is coming along nicely on the halfling operative, with the slight catch I don't have the color I want for her shirt, trousers, or hair.

Those are some very thin arms!  Nice custom work, though.


I won't lie, I am concerned about them breaking under rough handling on the tabletop. The fault/credit for the sculpts must go mostly to Heroforge though.

Used up my white resin on failed prints and some bases. Replacement grey resin came just in time.

Vesk brawler and nuar outlaw are cured and have their supports off.




While I wait for some paints to come in, here's the crew so far:

Yeah! More Starfinder stuff! And glad to see I'm not the only one running a Vesk!

      So, I invoke the 3 foot rule on these; one could go back and forth forever attempting to edge half-timbered buildings.
      I have been idly working on new scenery since the pandemic, and finished two more buildings plus a well I bought a few months ago.  (That’s lightning speed compared to some projects.)  These are sold on Amazon by some outfit called Ender Toys.  I picked up a group of four, and a second group of two, some fences and the well.  
      If these are an example of what I could get at home, I’m not rushing out to get a printer to wrestle with.  The filament lines are pretty distinct close up.


      However, they are light and didn’t take all that long to paint, so I think they will be fine in a game.
      I posted the earlier buildings plus some tree bases in this thread: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92205-tree-group-bases/
      The overall building collection now looks like this, including a Battle Masters tower:

      My crystal ball says there is a skirmish game in my near future...

      A new Kickstarter from Durgin Paint Forge coming late September / early October.
      Wasn't a backer of the previous ones, but I don't think there's been any issues.
      They've been working away at this one for a while, so most of the minis have already been previewed on their blog:- https://www.durginpaintforge.com/blog/ just look for the green renders!

      Made a weird little conversion based on my destiny 2 warlock. 
      He's built out of a warlord red army soldier in winter clothing, Mantic gcps arms, soda pop minis head and other random bits.

      I got this one printed out in FDM from a kickstarter.
      In hindsight I should have chosen resin, it did help me decide to go for a resin printer myself.
      The printlines are visible and it's rough, I even used putty to smooth things out where I could.
      All in all a nice sculpt though.
