from the base up it's about 9 inches? I suppose if you wanted to field it as a demon prince it would be an option. About that same size. Why do you ask? Need one?


Just curious. The model seems really large, but there isn't anything in the photo to provide scale. 9" is much bigger than I thought-- I don't have any place to keep models that size.


Compared to my dakkasaurus who I put on a 100x80 base, she's twice his height and about as wide as he was long. She's huuuuge. And painting on this scale is a whole new adventure... I had heard larger models were different but now I know.

There are a lot of really cool, really large models out there. While it would be fun to stretch myself, in the end everything I paint is a gaming piece. For the forseeable future, I think I'll live vicariously through you.

OK so couple unrelated models thrown into the mix this month, neither specifically Halloween themed, but would want to meet neither in a dark alley...

Proof shots behind spoiler....

Spoiler:



Some sort of monster, dunno what bought cheap of ebay.... (should really invest in a 3d printer rather than buying all this random stuff.... tell myself will save money in long run ;-) )




and a lone Plague Terminator (actually the second in squad, but first painted last month)

As someone who prints minis to sell them, I can attest that it's far cheaper to print them. However it does come at a significant initiall buy in cost.

That said, I can print a mini for about 20 cents. To put it in perspective, that Dino and the succubus *together* cost me about 5 dollars. But, the printers I have are 600 dollar printers plus the other stuff I have to make them work like cleaning and curing stations.

As to your minis, I love love love the contrast and light effects. Holy crap. It's so striking and pretty!

Apart from some odds and ends on the base having to dry/set overnight, I managed to squeeze out a pretty quick one-night paint session on the little guy. He was a surprising amount of fun to paint, especially the face/skin tones. Oh man so much fun! I also just had to do a couple of scenic shots with a desert background; too cute!! But I did include a couple of photos with the figure properly lit too.

So the problem as mentioned is the initial capital cost of buying the printer and potentially wash and cure station (which long-term is meh). But there's also the learning period where you're going to mess up prints, plus you're going to be investing in cleaning materials dependent on the type of resin you use, AND the fact that because you can literally just brrrrrt all sorts of STLs now, you're going to want to print everything. I have to restrain myself from just slicing and printing every STL I find (which can sometimes cost money, don't forget), and I almost need to subscribe and save resin as a monthly order

I got mine done in time as well, even painted up the smaller version of him as well. Pretty happy with how he turned out, he was a blast to paint! And due to the scale you can knock them out quite quickly too. Last picture is a quick scale shot with both of them and a 1 cent coin.
I'll be printing and painting more of them in the future

Pretty much a one-evening painting session for me, once I'd got the basing materials down. Nowhere near DV8's gorgeous little baby Yoda, but I'm happy with it. Might need to expand my contrast paint collection; there are only so many ways I can use purple.

Say hello to the bounty hunter Hawkmoth the Grievous, known for his kind, forgiving, gentle nature and his low disintegration count...











Here he is posing as a Squat so I can get a better angle on the base:

Just as a reminder that with me running this month you have a little extra time, as I’m in the Eastern Time Zone. It’s a little after 8 PM on Saturday where I am now, and I’ll probably not close it until the new one goes up Monday morning. So about 36 hours left.

Nice work! Love the use of the game board to frame the minis.

Veeery late to the party with my own pics, and not 100% happy with it, but given that I only started this guy last night it'll do! I am at least pleased with the armour and at arm's length he'll look plenty good enough to terrorise some DnD players on the board. Model is a Necromancer by Lotd of the Print, it's quite large (that's a 1" base, so probably similar overall proportions as a Stormcast but obviously the pose makes it bigger overall).

Wow - whilst my entry was not as quick as DV8 or Maharg, this was an experiment in getting quick results for me. The idea was to have the lighting as a feature but it is quite difficult to see in the pics due to the angles....hmmm. The piece is not quite finished but for the time spent on it, I am mostly happy with the result.
Good luck to everyone and see you next month.

OK, that should be a wrap! Brushes down. If you need some daylight to grab better pics I’m not going to be able to start the vote thread until at least this evening, but more likely tomorrow. So you can grab them and post them as needed. But everyone should start work on November’s contest: Catch me if you Can!

Thanks Nev, I did need the daylight

I'm really proud of this work and think its probably the biggest model I've painted to date. I like the effects I manged from the transition on the wings to the marbling on the stone grave. I wanted to give the dragon a very ancient bone and rusted Armour look which also turned out well IMO.



Bonus, I used the Dakka auto adjuster on the image below, do you think it looks better or worse? In the one above the Red is a little dull compared to RL but in the one below its over colored, In RL its somewhere in between

Great work MG! I would say your pics are better. You can't really make out the marbling on the dakka one as that area is too bright.
