Is 'Eavy Metal Calling?





Affton, MO. USA

Some more prints to gawk at.

3 ninja, lion guy and chesty the samurai chick.
The weapons are really fragile, one ninja sword snapped when I was taking off the supports and it flew somewhere. The chesty lady had a failed print on her sword arm. I found some residue on the screen and removed it.

Also some guardians.

Their Spears did not print and had two failed shields, both in the same spot that I found the residue on the screen. Third guardian just finished printing and wash, about to cure him and his spear and shields looked like they came out good, pictures later.

Took a day off today, already worked at church for a few hours, so the remainder of the day looks like painting for me .

I'm afraid that will have to be a covert exchange program like the CIA. Rules are posted in the 3D printer subforum not to discus fight club.....or printer files.

Warboss_Waaazag wrote:The guardians look cool as hell. These models take to paint very well, too.

yeah, this guardian was a test piece, so I didn't even prime him , and had no issues with the paint sticking once he had been cured.



also decided white armor sucks and the Kirin was just too pale, so it got a bright shiny fire-kirin paint scheme.


I'm not a huge fan of the Anycubic workshop program, it just doesn't flow for me yet. It took far too long this morning to import and slice a buildplate full of ashigaru. To be fair, each Ashigaru is 4 parts, so it probably wasn't too bad . We will see the results when I get home, it was only a 2 hour and 15 minute print for 4 multipart models.

Your color scheme for the kirin is pretty close to the Kirin beer logo, so I guess we can say it's historically accurate.

You're taking to the Anycublic like a duck to water, and churning out the good stuff. Fails will happen, the important thing is getting to know what causes them so you can mitigate it (usually more supoorts or higher exposure). Oh, and remembering to clean out the vat whenever there's a fail, though it sounds like you're doing that already.

A tip for when you get failures on the underside of arms and things: get a small bottle of Vallejo Plastic Putty. It's not sculptable like green stuff, but sets fairly fast and can hold at least some texture. It's no good for armour or anything, but for smooth shapes that just need the flat areas filling out or where a little bit of texture has been lost it's great for salvaging failed prints.

Very envious of the speed of the Mono printers, my regular Photon taking around 5-7 hours for 32mm minis is still keeping me swimming in prints, but being able to get a plate of minis done in an afternoon is just far better for the impatient!

Lovely work on the Fire Kirin as well.

Yeah, that’s my issue, half way there and onto the next thing , well here’s to hoping it gets completed.

aku-chan wrote:The Kirin is looking rather snazzy!

Thanks, he is a really nice sculpt, as is most of the Titan-Forge Dragon Empire stuff.

Speaking of which, the second print is completed, the first had a failed arm. Both failed to print pants that I could tell , o maybe she’s in a full body suit, but it doesn’t give that impression to me.

If she was in a body suit it didn’t help her as I tried to pop her off the paint pot and her leg snapped off at the ankle . My superglue isn’t holder her together either .

Anyways, Happy Father’s Day to all you blokes.

Yes , the Kirin . Though this lady could also be Mythical as I noticed she has pointy ears(well the one you can see is pointy like an fox).

anyway thanks to Flinty in the stargrave thread for pointing out the cute US4GI .stl file on thingiverse. Not really sure why I needed to print it, except wanting to have a whole horde of them to be a Stargrave version of a Tribble is just too fun of an idea. It had another version of it in the file, but I had another issue with the print sticking to the bottom of the tray, I'll print it's buddy at a later date.

also while cleaning and rearranging I found the dreadball Ref-Bot, who will somehow join my Stargrave crew once I get a chance to sit and read the book .

Seriously I thought I was going to be getting more time to do hobby things, but it seems like less productive time overall. I did get another bottle of resin, so I'll be printing again( actually the Us4GI is from the new bottle) and I have some large Data terminals printing right now, they will be done when I get home.

Ill have to shine the bunnies down to give the basing idea a go.

In the mean time I’ve had a Dreadful morning....in a good way.

Weapon arms (3 twin auto cannons are 23 minutes from finishing their print)

Need to start slicing some other weapons .

I think I’ve gone full Dorn now. Trying some other yellow options, the red Aquila will not be happening, it will be Yellow and Black all about.

Warboss, I may not die with the most toys, but I will have the largest pile of shame

Graven, no worries.....except it got more Dreadful a small I reprinted another set of the three dreads , also got the Ender going again making bases for them.

I decided to start assembling and start the basing for these guys.

This is just a basecoat with the Nazdreg yellow. Mantic is helping out with the basing by sacrificing some of their scenery pieces.

Have I mentioned the wife and child#3 are out of town . People wonder how I Canberra get more done. 4 hours of sleep, in working at church by 4 am, and the printer is going as nonstop as I can without buying another print head.

Off to paint as this print is finishing its wash cycle.

Though I love me some dreadnoughts, I never really noticed how huge the Leviathan Dreadnought is . Contemptors are already larger than washing mashing dreads and I had seen a redemption at the local shop and thought it was stupid large. I had to double check to make sure I had not printed this guy at the wrong scale. Turns out they are supposed to be this flipping huge .


The legs are washing as I type. The claw arm failed it’s print , but I’ve seen other options which will suffice .

Already churning out a Battle Company's worth of Dreadnoughts! Wasn't until the very end of my first bottle of resin that I dared go much bigger than regular 32mm minis!

Always enjoyed the Leviathan design, how it doesn't stray too far from 'Murder Box on Legs' while having a little more complexity than the regular Dreads. Hmm, do I need to print one?

I've found three things helpful with the Anycubic to avoid sticking to the tray (bear in mind I only use the default printing software that comes with it).

1. Smear a little resin onto the print bed so it is tacky prior to starting your print
2. Very light sanding of the print bed
3. Medium bases or thicker. The light support option seems more likely to peel away than the medium. It can still peel at the edges depending on the weight distribution of the model (i.e. very thick or heavy items can cause the based to peel away, and thus warp the print).

i.e. the blue base the model is supposed to stick to, I roughed mine up ever so slightly and then smear it with a thin layer of resin several minutes before pushing go (just enough so it is tacky). Oh, and also check recommend layer thickness for the different types of resin. I've found one that works for the clear green, and just run with it.
