Leave it up to this thread to make a brother feel inadequate. The soul wars box is a bit of a sausage fest, so I had to add some girls to the party.

The banshees were great, but Olynder is not a fun paint at all, even with sub assemblies.

You guys have painting skills which make me feel like a three fingered kid with downs and tempura paints.....

I know this looks like shit, but I feel obligated to post it here for your amusement.

I mean, for the cost of a ping pong ball and some other misc household trash I think I can make a workable beholder out of it.
Reminds me, this is the next figure i'm throwing through my Photon printer....

Obviously the world needs a pirate beholder....

This looks a bit better than my stick with double sided tape approach to base coating a bunch at once. Going to go check it out next weekend provided the local GW store gets them in.
I just use a piece of scrap wood and Glue Dots. You just roll the dispenser on whatever and a little piece of gel sticks to it. There’s 200 dots in a roll and you can use a dot many times. I’ve had a $6 roll for two years and still not emptied it yet.

Some recent 3D printed Gloomhaven terrain. Haven’t had time to do any nice pieces lately. Itching to do something, may do some things from KDM or The Edge soon.

Found a guy local to me that does resin printing and he made this for me.

It's got some light printing lines in the wings, do you all have any advice how to clean those up? I'm thinking just progressive sand them out before priming.

Light wet sanding smooths out printing lines. Just be careful not to over sand and heat it up and deform it is all.

Yeah I figured that would be the case, going to give the whole thing a wet sanding once I get to it in the queue.

Got some runewars minis in today and I've got some more coming on Tuesday. I'll drop a photo of them here when I get them all in. Much higher quality than nolzur's miniatures and not much more expensive when you consider the volume. If you d&d guys need Calvary, skeletons and stuff like that check it out.

So I just bought a bunch of stuff off aliexpress. I couldn't pass up on a knight valiant for 48 bucks. I also got some killa kans, orruk warboss, old oop warboss on warboar, and warboss on maw krusher.

So when I get it all in I'll see what the quality is like. I got all of that for $143. So here's to hoping it looks good lol.

At Warfaire Weekend and saw the Creature Caster (Creature Caster USA) stuff up close. Man their stuff is amazing. If you are a painter, these are definitely some cool display pieces.
Yeh that new ork warboss with the massive cybernetic arm looks great. And their big half naked chaos lady thing looks amazing.
