This year's Christmas present to myself was a Sonic Mini 4k printer. I've done a few runs now and promised a pic of a painted mini at some point. Gardain here was a bit of a failure as it turns out there were a few problems with the pre-supports. Still, he's 99% ok which means he's good enough to use as an example, but also that I don't care enough to paint to a high standard.
So with that in mind, he was painted with a thin layer of primer through the airbrush, a slightly thinned basecoat, and then a few washes. I.e. the point is to show off how much detail the printer can do, how visible the layer lines are, etc, not how well I can (or can't) paint. He is a 32mm scale dwarf, which means he is a little taller than a Reaper dwarf, but not quite as tall as a Reaper human.
The very bottom of this gauntlet pancaked, but you can only really see it if he is upside down.
Yup, that's a hair support. The presupport was at too low of an angle so it bonded to the figure.
Btw, those eyes are tiny. His right eye is really bad because the arm blocks coming in from below, the sculpted bushy eyebrow makes any high angle impossible, and he has a big nose. Jab straight in and hit where you aim! In fact, they are so small that I can't even tell I painted them at arm's length. If you skipped them to get him on the table no one would notice.
And there you have it, my first [painted] 3D print.
The flickering glow of the torchlight illuminates the dusty, hieroglyphic-covered walls of the forgotten tomb. Moonglow clings to his hat as he carefully scans for signs of the hidden entrance. A small indentation betrays the location of a door in the stone wall. Carefully, the adventurer pushes his way through.
The room is barren and dark, except for a single pillar of light shining down upon a small pedestal. On top sits a small box.
Moonglow carefully crosses the chamber and approaches the box. He lifts the lid and peers inside.
"Ah, there's my old minis!"
Who's Your Mummy?
Today I felt like sharing some more of my older work that hasn't been posted on the forums yet. This time it's the Bones mummies that are getting the spotlight.
These mummies were one of my first large painting projects. It seemed impressive at the time to be working on 8 things simultaneously. They're a bit dusty from all the drybrushing, but I think they look the part, and I'm a fan of the red-gold color scheme I settled on.
More Photos beneath the spoiler:
These were a fun little set and were perfect adversaries when my players visited the City of Time and sought to stop a Lich's return to power. After failing once an resetting the clock, they had to fight their way through a mummy-filled temple complete with crawling claws and sand-filling rooms to stop the Mummy Lord from returning to his former Lich status.
What's your favorite mummy encounter?
Just a quick picture. They're not special but I am trying to get my paint count up this year so just before reapercon I chose 20 miniatures I had no special attachment to and went about getting them painted. Most of them are destined to appear in my Christmas village as townsfolk
The rocky was a bonus from Mocha's paint a rocky class. I thought he came out great!
Not part of the 20 but because I haven't shown them yet, the swine mafia needed to have a word with the vegetable hauler. Apparently he hadn't hired pigs to load his cart...
My LFGS had a painting contest on its FB Star Wars Legion page a bit ago. 2 weeks to paint up a squad of at least 4 figures. As creativity counted, I decided to set my white and black paint aside and paint something besides Stormtroopers.
I took a look through the Rebel scum I'd acquired and really like the poses and sculpts for the Rebel Veterans.
I'd planned to do the whole box of 7 figures, but (as anyone who's seen my WIPs knows) I'm not the fastest painter. I'm lucky if I can get one figure done in two weeks.
So I quickly decided to just do 4 figures for the contest.
I liked how they came out, and they did get "best painted" in the contest, so I guess they are alright.
It then took me another 6 weeks to finally finish the last 3 figures (see? Sloooooow.)
But the whole unit is finally done.
Should probably read the rules on them sometime soon.....
Now back to all those Stormtroopers.
A small group of Goblins to use as opponents in Sellsword & Spellslingers or any other game.
