Thanks Guys, Needed the break, I will still be very limited on my posts for a while, but I'm doing stuff when I can.

I got into the Bushido mood again during a sleepless night, so I painted up the newer Temple of Ro Kan models I got a while back.

Gah...seeing them on my big monitor instead of my phone is terrible


Then I put them next to my old painted models and , so I repainted the older models as the oranges didn't match and no cohesion between the groups.

pre-repaint

repainted


after the first sit down and painting the first two models I got a notification on my phone that GCTstudios was doing a 15% off sale in lieu of no Adepticon. So I may have ordered more Villagers and Kami during the sale. All of the models will work with the Temple faction, but most also work with my Minimoto and the Shiho faction I have as well.

Speaking of Minimoto, now that I have the Temple guys painted up (and found some dice for them at the local shop), I started painting the first model of the newest wave for Minimoto this morning. I should have some time tonight to keep working on them, and I will be repainting the older models as well.

Keep up the fight, just stay over there.

The church reopened yesterday for the first time in 1 year an one week. Between Covid and the fire we finally have the Sanctuary back with all new sound system, lights, floors and chairs. Positive feedback from all the congregation yesterday for Palm Sunday and the rededication of the church. I put in almost 80 hours between the two jobs last week, so I am completely wiped out, but the painting helped .

Blows dust off of thread. So it’s been a while, lots going on with work and family as usual. Just wanted to give a quick shout out as I may be back in the swing of things....soon.

Oh and it begins again.


Not a fan of AnyCubic right now as it took 2 weeks longer than it should have and multiple emails chasing down my order, but I got the photon mono, the wash and cure machine 2.0 and a 1Kg container of resin. Wonder where it will take me.

Rock on, Theo! The Anycubic has very good reviews, I await with great interest your findings. A resin printer is in my future for figures, but still having fun with the FDMs for terrain.

Good to see you back.

Thanks guys, I hope to shortly be back in full (fuller) form, still really busy times, just wanted to post as I actually was able to start printing last night.

Unfortunately it was a major failure. looks like my print stuck to the bottom of the vat instead of the build plate. I didn't have time to mess with it this morning, and probably not tonight either...sigh.

I've been quietly lurking, lots of cool things happening in the forums, and I have been contemplating the new AOS 3.0 (not really feeling it though). Bits of painting happening here and there, but mainly clearing the desk to get ready for the printer.

So, second attempt came out much better, different model though. Side by side with the best version I could get off the Ender3.



While I was happy with the Ender3 version (except the spear tip), the newer AnyCubic version is leagues better. The earrings on the Kirin are clear and smooth, no remanants of supports, which popped off in less than a minute compared to the hour or more it took me to disconnect the ones from the Ender. Lastly this is all one piece where the Ender version is at least two (might be a third, either Kirin with attached rider lower body with separate rider upper half, not sure if the spear was a third piece or not). Also this was just over 4 hours to print, if I remember correctly the Ender version took 10+ hours.

Anyway, it went through a wash cycle (I did 8minutes) and a cure cycle (10minutes). The next print has started and should be ready for me when I get home tonight from work, it’s only a 2+ hour print cycle for 5 guys. I can see a whole army getting done in no time at all.

All these models were pre-supported from Titan-Forge. The one that failed was me trying to do supports myself, so more videos need to be watched in my still really limited free time.

The joy with resin printing is you can CRAM that print plate full of stuff and the time taken to print is only set by the tallest piece. none of this FDM print times doubling by adding a second model... I hope you're good at Tetris

Glad to see you back too

I use 3D printers a fair bit at work, but they are all filament based (although very high end). But I am sorely tempted to get a resin printer for myself.

I hope you have an advertising agreement with AnyCubic for the publicity you are doing.

I wish I could get paid by AnyCubic, or at least get free resin .

Well while I was at work the handcannon guys got done.

After a bath and some curing I started the next batch, 2.5 hours later I had 3 archers

And a monk was done in the same batch.


The monk is part of the Titan-Forge Patreon welcome package, the others were parts from some of the 3 bundles I bought last year, just ported over to the new printer.

I figure all the gunners and archers can be mirrored which can give me 10 unique gunners and 6 unique archers. I might mirror the big rock hand so I could do a full elemental rising from the ground.

I think I’m giving AOS 3.0 a pass. GW is just writing rules to be too convoluted now, I’ll look at building these out as either (or both) for Oathmark and Kings of War, possibly The Ninth Age as well.

Also stupid Theo idea struck while detaching the supports....more on that this weekend....maybe.

The other thing that is useful to learn if you want more variation is a bit of blender to chop off parts and reposition them for a variation other wise you end up with just as many lefty folks which can look a bit odd as things like the gunners and archers would have been trained in one direction to rank up properly and not blind their neighbour

Here’s how I finally looked at it price wise. Last year, when I was getting furloughed, my wife said I needed something to keep me busy. Learning 3D printing was it, so I got an Ender3 and started down the road. It was under $200 for the machine and some filament. Great results, good terrain, not so great models. Resin was still way more expensive at the time and cleanup was more than I wanted to deal with. The AnyCubic Mono and wash and cure machine take up less than 3 sq ft of space, just too wide comfortably for my bookcase, but I could make it work, I just have to get a different power strip. Well worth it considering the army that I will build would cost far more to order.

JoshInJapan wrote:The new printer sure makes nice models. Will you be able to keep up with the painting? I guess you could recruit your kids to help...

I never kept up with painting models I bought, so that’s just an unreal expectation .

I might give it a go, but my desktop is 10+ years old and already struggling. Plus, while Time is slightly more available now, it really isn’t plentiful enough for me to start another new skill.

I really need another power strip set up for these machines. The biggest gripe I have is their plugs are gigantic and I can only get one plugged in on the power strip I have set up at a time.echnically I could get two, but then I have to undo my overhead light source and my power cord for my iPad charger , neither option is really great.

Just finished printing the Titan-Forge loyalty reward Samurai Bushi model. Needs to cure, but I forgot and unplugged the curing station to start printing some Oni .

He’s a big lad, next to a human for size comparison. His sword must hang off the base as it isn’t in the right spot, it just is longer than it should be.

The Oni I printed while I was at work is on the curing stand now. The mirrored version failed, we’ll have to check out more info on the computer to fix him later.

Lots of support failures caused the issue on the mirrored model, he will make a nice casualty model.

Great stuff. The resin prints look great!

Are those things remotely durable? Do they shatter if dropped from a 2-3 foot height?

Quick check on those larger models, are those solid, or is Chitu making them hollow? If they are hollow, is there a drainage hole in them somewhere?

The first large model I printed kept weeping resin and then cracked as I didn't realise the slicer had hollowed it out for me and it ended up with a pool of liquid resin inside. Something to be careful of with larger items

After dropping at least 4 models down to the concrete floor I can tell you they are just as durable as the HIPS models like GW makes.

Some are hollow, some such as the model I am printing now were hollowed and perforated and pre-supported by Titan-Forge.

Playing with colors this morning, wanting a lighter color scheme than what I’ve seen online.

Also have been working on a Kirin color scheme. Perhaps it’s too light for what I’m working towards, but I will continue as I like how the monk turned out.

(Learning new) Printing and painting (well)- a true Renaissance Man! I find that if I'm not careful, it's very easy to get single tracked down one path, and either build the Mountain of Plastic Shame or watch cobwebs gather on the printer. To keep up with both takes focus, dedication to the hobby and a sense of balance.

And lots of soda pop.

Well done!

Over the weekend I printed out this guy.

You can try to convince yourself, but you'll still buy stuff I think my wife hoped the printed would save money. Foolish woman.
As for the Dragon that's epic what settings did you have it on? Is it a Titan Forge, or other?

All settings are still basic AnyCubic original settings. It is also Pre-supported by Titan-Forge. I did it in the PLA last year, the shogun is also printed, he rides on top of it's head in a seated pose. The main buddy is pre-hollowed and has the drain holes in it to reduce suction and to allow the extra resin to escape. the whole thing can be printed on the Mono in just a weekend if done like I did and put multiple sections on the same build plate.
