A’s Creepy Wolfman

My friend C asked me to paint a HeroForge mini that he created for his wife’s D&D character.  He described the character as having wolf ears and tail, and standing in a particular pose.  Left without a picture or HeroForge link, I attempted to recreate the character in the most awful way I could.  This is the result:

Obviously not worth $30 for them to print it, but worth $4 for the STL (on sale) once I got my own printer.

Hangar 18 Tiger Madchen Bust

Pictures not so great.  Will attempt to re-shoot soon.

54mm bust from Hangar 18’s Bawidamann Series pinup kickstarter.

Lots of neutral grays.  Black, Noir Black, German Gray, Basalt Gray, White.  MSP Blonde Hair Triad.  Skin ranges from MSP Dark Skin Highlight to Fair Skin Highlight.  Spattered Blood for the lipstick and tie.

3D Printed Pillboxes

I printed up some Warmachine-style terrain on my new 3D printer, one for myself and a few for my local game store.

This one is pretty dark and drab.  Primed with 50/50 Metallic and Black Primer.  Grey parts first covered with cheap craft paint, then tinted with miniature paints.  Printed with PLA on “High” resolution – .12mm layers.

These ones were primed with just Metallic Primer, the grey is a different color of craft paint, and the bottom is red/blue miniature paint.  The red one was printed with PLA at “Hyper” resolution – .05mm layers, and the blue one with ABS at High, but with a thin coat of gap-filling resin over most of it.

Kitty (Better Pictures)

Original post here

Kitty won a high silver at ReaperCon 2018.  Some of the high points the judges pointed out were use of colors in the shadows and the freehand on the pants.  I now know what I need to do to achieve Gold – spend plenty of time on it, ask better painters for advice and humbly accept it, and iterate multiple times.  Many thanks to Cathy Wappel who was seated at my table at ReaperCon 2017 and gave me lots of good suggestions and advice.  Rhonda Bender was also extremely helpful.  Also thanks to the other people at the table (Charity and… Adam?).

Weak points (for my future reference): the gun’s highlights.  Her gloves are too close in color to the guns.  Her hair needs to go all the way (or nearly all the way) to white, in a “halo”.
