Here is the first miniature I designed using Desktop Hero 3D. A Drunken Master Dwarven Monk for the DnD campaign.
After binging videos on YouTube about 3D printing, I finally got myself a printer. My Creality Ender 3 arrived in the mail last weekend, and after building it, calibrating the bed and getting some filament, it was ready to start pumping out critters. 3D prints are notorious for looking “layered”, but what if there was a monster whose skin is supposed to look “wavy”? Enter the Naga.
One of the new players decided to roll a Gnome Druid. Looking around for any suitable miniatures, I eventually came across a Dwarf Sorcerer that, despite the obvious size and build differences, would fit the bill. Another Wizkids miniature, this one is part of the Pathfinder Deep Cuts line.
I recently moved country and had to leave my players behind. Luckily, one of them took up the mantle of DM and the adventure continues. But I couldn’t leave them to play with bottle caps and markers, now, could I? Enter the new Wizkids line of unpainted minis.
The campaign I was running needed bigger drakes. I had been sparingly using the the Ambush Drake monster, but an unpainted miniature did not really instill the fear into my players the way such a beast should. Time to remedy that.
Yet another mini I painted for one of the players in my campaign. This one has a bit of modding work to better portray the character: he is supposed to commune with the Wolf spirit, so I wanted him holding a canine skull. It… sort of worked?
I recently acquired a copy of the 2001 version of Chainmail, a re-launched simplification of an old Gary Gygax game, featuring metal miniatures.While it will probably be a while before I assemble and paint these, I want to document what they looked like before I put them together. That way, at least I’ll have a way to remember how pure they were before I screwed it all up.
