He looks great, I particularly love the way you did the eyes!

 

Thank you!

Glad you approve!

Looks like he was sanded down but it looks really good.  I can see a few lines if I look really close on the top, althougth there are a few more lines on the bottom but it still looks really great.  I love the eyes and the mottling on the green skin.  Nicely don't there!

Thank you!

I also have a Spinosaurus waiting for paint from the same KS, already paitned the 9 gill shark( that was even worse, I used milliput on the bottom of the fins to smooth that one out)

It did make me decide to go for the resin printer since I mostly print minis.

Still they were rather cheap and it made me see what can be done.

 

I did always want a Cronosaurus mini and all in all it's a nice design.

Should have gone for the resin one in hindsight, but I'm not going to get another one.

Maybe if I find one with a different pose.

I like FDM for terrain and larger pieces and also when you can use a finer setting.  a lot of the time the print houses turn out things at 1 or 1.5mm layer thickness and that does not work for anything with a skin.  a 0.05 layer thickness provides a much smoother transition but it can double the print time.  Personally I am trying to talk a friend into getting his resin printer in operation so he can do resin prints and I can do FDM prints and we can trade between us.  For reasons I still don't understand yet, I don't want to be bothered with the curing process, not really sure why, I certainly don't mind playing with chemicals...

I just use a mask and gloves when cleaning the resin.

Then remove supports.

Curing is the easy part, out in the Sun or under a naildryer.

 

I on the other hand am reluctant to get a FDM printer.

I would like it for some large builings etc, but I feel there is too much fiddling with nozzles, clogging etc..

To me, I feel a resin printer is plug and play while I feel not technical enough to deal with a FDM one.

If you were my neighbour I would definitely trade projects.

I agree, really like how the eyes came out.

 

Thank you!

I'm happy you like it!

Another reason i don't swim in the ocean. 

 

It seems they're extinct, although I like to think that maybe...somewhere...a few are still around.

I mean we did think the Coelacanth was extinct and it's still here.

Nessie anyone?

 

Hmmmm maybe they live in the Bermuda Triangle, could explain some things.

Great basing and fine colour scheme. The print lines are indeed a pity, but maybe you can paint a second one up?

 

Thank you.

And no, because I got this as a physical print from a KS in FDM.

This was before I got myself a printer and I don't have the files.

 

But I do have several other things on file.

Next prehistoric seamonster is something I can print in resin myself.

When I get to it, it will be this one from Lord of the Print.

      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.
      WIP here:

      Story
      3D File Design
      Miniatures come in as a single-part with a separate base, or sliced into parts, where it helps in printing or when there are different part options, such as different weapons. For best results, we recommend resin printers as they will capture all of the fine detail of the models, though filament (FDM) printers will produce great results also. Scenery STL files are designed for FDM printing and come sliced and keyed and are set up to fit within a print area of 220 x 220 mm.
      STL rewards from the main pledges are set for delivery via download links after the project ends, within the first 3 weeks. Stretch goals may take longer as we may need to complete the 3D sculpting before they are available, but they should be done within 4-6 weeks.
      Pre-Supported
      We are providing the models with a pre-supported option for those that want them. Pre-supported models are created with Chitubox.
      Sample Prints
      Below are castings made from resin prints from this project. 
      Pledge Levels
      There are three main pledge types. The Adventurer pledge get the Core Rewards, which include miniatures and scenery and stretch goals for individual character miniatures. Other stretch goals can be added for an additional amount as shown on their picture. The Champion pledge gets the Core Rewards and all of the stretch goals as well as the New Add-Ons. Finally, the Treasure Hoard includes all of the Core Rewards, stretch goals and the New Add-Ons as well as Add-Ons from previous projects (Multiple GB of files). There are also special early-bird pledges for the Champion and Treasure Hoard at a reduced price. Each pledge level gets its STL Rewards as well as PDF rulebook files for DeepWars and ShadowSea and the Stygian Depths.
      If you want just to collaborate or have access to the Add-Ons you may consider the Basic level at just $1. These backers get the Rulebook  PDFs, so it is a great way to get playing.
      Any pledge level can be modified with the addition of Add-Ons, shown  at the bottom of the page. Simply increase your pledge amount for the  add-on you want.
        Stretch Goals
      If we are funded past the initial goal, we will unlock Stretch Goals. Some stretch goals may be available for an additional cost for the Adventurer pledge but are all free to Champion and Treasure Hoard backers.

      Presenting Triton, part of the Merfolk faction in the game Deep Wars by Antimatter Games.
       
      I painted his tail in some of that fancy colour-shifting paint that doesn't photograph at all and the highlighting is a bit rough, but I did a really good job (for me) of filling all his gaps so I'm calling it a win.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Presenting Ironbelly Klegg, a member of the Fortune Hunters faction from the game Deep Wars, and my first ever mini (that I've finished) from Antimatter Games.
       
      I'm still quite bad at painting crystals, lenses etc. so he made a pretty terrible choice for my first mini to paint, but I had fun.

      Had an hour to decide what I needed for the group. Decided to paint up a drowned zombie horde! :D
