Just finished another addition to my RPG monster set, a beautiful Basilisk found on Thingiverse. Due to all of the spikes the print was a little tricky, but it turned out great.
Elementals, beings formed directly from the forces of the elements are time-honored monsters and can be found in many Monster Manuals. I’ve painted three of them for my RPG campaign in the last two years, the classic Fire Elemental and the more exotic Blood and Smoke Elementals.
With the rising number of exceptional models for 3D printing available on the web I decided to invest into a 3D printer about two month ago. I went for an Anycubic Photon DLP resin printer and I am very happy with the printing results.
Managed to get my hands on a fantastic Umber Hulk 3D model from Greg Breault. His version of the iconic D&D monster is a mix between the bulkier AD&D version and the thinner current D&D version:
The model printed without any problems:
Player character #3 – Tara Dust, a Human Detective who is searching for her missing father.
Tara is the first mini I designed and bought from Heroforge. While I was a bit sceptic when I saw the render of the mini, the final product was very detailed.
As I already wrote I have been painting minis for my Iron Kingdoms RPG group for the last 2 1/2 years. With my new camera setup I started taking pictures, but with dozens of painted minis it will take some time to get them all up here. Lets start with the player characters. First off are new pics of Gillian and Dog, to whom I already introduced you to in July 2016:
First post since 2016… Stopped posting, but not painting. But I did (for the moment) completely move away from painting Chibi minis. This started because I painted more and more minis for my RPG group, but was cemented by the disaster surrounding the Super Dungeon Explore: Legends Kickstarter. SDE minis are THE definitive Chibi minis for me and the failure to deliver Legends took away a lot of my motivation to paint Chibis. So my quest to get all SDE Heroes painted (though nearly finished…) has been pushed far down my quest log and I haven’t painted any Chibis for 2 years now.
Due to a new photo setup I started taking pics of my paintjobs again yesterday and I wanted to share my 5 last SDE paintjobs:
Royal Warden – painted July 2016
Mistmourn Shaman – painted July 2016
Wandering Minstrel (with modified ears) – painted August 2016
Twilight Knight – painted August 2016
Kunoichi Candy – painted September 2016
After years of not playing pen and paper RPGs I was asked some time ago to master a new group. I managed to convince the group that an Iron Kingdoms setting was a good choice and two days ago we had our first session.
Have been prepping for weeks and I’m in the process of painting multiple minis for the campaign. The first two minis I finished were the player character Gillian Ashburn, a noblewoman who chose her passion of mechanikal engineering over the demands of her family and standing, and her ‘Jack “Dog”
