And now for something completely unrelated to camo (no, really, those minis were pure pain- glad you guys like them, though!)

As you guys are probably aware, 3D printing has been something of a growing hobby of mine- playing with all the different filaments, tinkering... Its a match made in heaven! I even managed to carry it over into my regular 9-5 job, which was a cool bonus.

Anyways.
I have a friend who is big into costuming/cosplay/etc, so working with her I ended up with a full-size scan of my head. A little messing around with mixing meshes and we ended up with Roman emperor Ramos!
Had to print this 1:4 scale in a "marble" filament




Pretty soon I set to printing it on the resin printer as well.




The small ones are VERY small, in case the above pic doesn't show it off... Its scaled to a sort of DnD-scale... Something of a dare from one of my gaming friends.





Commission projects-wise, Ive been building a Space Marine Falchion... Man these things are BIG!
I'll have some wip pics of it up for you guys soon. Til then, thanks for sticking around!

Of me or of you?

Cause in either case, the answer is YES

Can you prime and wash one of the tiny ones so we can see how much detail you managed to fit in there? Hard to tell with the clear, but it does look very detailed for its size!

I can definitely do that- Expect something here soon!


=====================================

This weekend was mostly building the Falchion- Big damn tank.

Typical sort of FW kit- fit together mostly without issue. There were only two parts I needed to heat up to bend back into shape and only the front-left main wheel giving me any sort of appreciable issues in assembly.

Always interesting to see how they engineer these kits with the existing plastic models. In this case, a baneblade formed the bottom and internal walls of the hull as well as the main wheels for the tracks. Easily more than 75% resin on this, but must have been more cost effective with the plastic bits. Real interesting.

That is a huge pile of resin.

The Emperor Ramos bust is awesome. Love to see people getting creative with 3D scanning and printing.

I only get to scan boring things like jetski and boat hulls and the odd car boot interior......

I am interested in the Falchion build. I love the look of the Heresy super heavies. I can’t wait to see it all come together.

Actually, of you! I take such joy out of the knights and flyers you painted for me, would love to have a mini-Ramos to place by them in the display case. Good to see you at the modeling thing again, though I'm glad your RL job is working out well too of course.

@Archer: You should just do a full body scan one day as you're scanning boring old boat hulls.... You know, for "calibration"

@Riddle of Steel: These superheavies are some of my favorite things to build, possibly second only to Titans... Thanks for checking in!!

@WM: It definitely surprised me when I unpacked the kit and found most of a baneblade... Bottom hull (2pcs), inside hull left and right (2pcs each), and the outer wheels for the tracks (4 total pcs). Almost nothing visible, funnily enough.

@Gits: consider it done. I'll give it to you next Adepticon! (fingers crossed! )

==============

First thing's first- mini-me bust!
Turns out, theres a lot more to it than I had thought....



I continue to be amazed by this little printer.



I also printed myself a model to paint- this time something for myself!



This is the Vile Bloom, from DragonTrappers- one of the patreons I support. They do a bunch of minis every month, but this is the first one that I saw and immediately knew I wanted to paint. It took the better part of 3 days to print, but man..... what a mini

Plan on her is to go with ashen tones and an almost deathly white color on most of the skin and wings. Then the flower on top in a deep wine red. I think Ill build a really nice scenic base as well... gotta see what I can rig up.



On the Falchion front- I ran out of yellow paint! So... frig...
Thats all on order, but here we are at 2/5 colors on the yellow:

Excellent! I look forward to it.

You must have a pretty darn good printer... the quality of that model is amazing! Very excited to see what happens when the paint starts to flow.

The Falchion looks pretty cool, I think it'll be awesome when you finish painting it. That's a very interesting cutting mat you have... not the standard green grid at all.

@Gits: Its a fiskars mat, I think. Cheapie thing I got at walmart- might be near time for a new one. This thing has seen its fair share of fire, lacquer thinner, paint, and knives... Better it than my desk though!


Progress on the Falchion continues.
I love painting these gradients. It all comes together so nice.

Next steps are blocking out all of the different colors. Lots of details on this guy.




Ive also been working on the flower dragon thingy...


Found some T Rex files on thingiverse and sent those to the printer as well.
Years ago when I started painting minis, this stuff was unthinkable! Amazing how tech has come along and how 3D printing has become a really approachable hobby!

When I first started in my Patternmaking trade 3D printing had just started to become a thing that was much more a novelty than anything actually practical.

Now, the sky is almost the limit with "printing" so many different materials at excellent tolerances. Eventually there will be no miniatures (or cups, plates or other household items) we will just download files and print what we want when we want.

No more "mum we have run out of credit on our phones" it will be "Mum the 3D printer has run out of plastic/resin/metal and I can't print my skateboard!"

Yeah, gradients on tanks are so satisfying!

Also love the printed dragon. I really can't wait for you to start painting that.
