So, first off, sorry if this is in the wrong category. Wasn’t sure which one to put it in, so.... Here it is.
As I’ve been painting for a while, the thought of “hey, maybe I should print my own minis” popped into my head. I pursued this thought a while, and then determined that yeah, I should probably go ask the professionals. So, here I am, rapid-firing questions like a nitwit.
First of all, what are some of the pros and cons? It would seem that it’d be cheaper in the long haul, but don’t you have to buy the 3D model as well? (But MF, you could finally make those minis you’ve made in your spare time on Hero Forge.......)... What are some of y’all’s pros and cons?
Second off, what printer? From my research, it seems that resin provides the most detail, but is more expensive, so I’d like to avoid it if at all possible. I’ve heard that the Creality Ender 3 seems to be best for the rookie on a budget (which I am in the largest sense of the word), but is it really?
Lastly, is it actually worth it in the end? In both the regards of pleasure with the final product and economically?
All thoughts and advice is needed and appreciated! Thanks, all!
Does anyone know when these will hit retail? We've seen quite a bit of bones 4, but not the weapon sprues from 3, and as someone who has party members with unique characters, the conversion potential there is great.
Secondary question, do you think we will get stuff like the deadlands weapon sprue in bones soon/ever?
Good morning guys!
Q: if buying one of the reaper core sets (108 bottle set), what's the main difference in them?
I'm looking into buying a complete paint set. I've been doing a ton of research and have settled on a reaper core set (i already own several reaper paints and love them). I know that everyone suggests a blend of several companies based on which has the best, e.g. yellow, or metallics. I just want to make it simple, buy a set and build from there.
I'll mostly be painting 40k and privateer press models with some terrain and 3d prints mixed in (i have a cheapo set of acrylics from Michael's for large terrain and 3d prints).
I've also considered the Vallejo Model set, and Army Painter Mega Set.
Thanks in advance!
I've only used Army Painter strong tone - their medium tone, I believe - to paint my Zombicide: Black Plague minis and loved how they came out. I automatically dismissed the possibility of using it on my other minis, but now understand that's what it's for. Anybody have any experience with using it on other monster or hero figures? Were you satisfied with the results? Did you use a version other than the strong tone? I note their website lists recommendations for different colors where each tone excels, etc. I'd love to hear of others' experiences with using it on non-zombie figures.
Ordered a reasonable amount of paints from an online store that carries Reaper here in Canada.... All of the other paints come across as normal, but this one.... Well, uhm...
I'm going to venture a guess it's a goner, or can it be saved? There isn't even a liquid sound when shaking the bottle, just the sound of the agitator stuck in the bottom moving around somewhat.
