MU 108 - Gargoyle 1 not Goliath, Prey Collections, 3DPrint Service: HonourGuard

by Sebastian

 


Review Time #108,
Sebastian here with another Miniatures Unpacked for you!

The miniature is a fan made production by Prey Collection and is based on the comic series "Gargoyles" that was broadcast on TV from 1993 - 1997.


The special feature here is that it is not a finished cast miniature, but a 3D printed figure. The 3D print service I trust fell on HonorGuard. Also because he uses the M70 Resin from Resione. This is characterized by an even better level of detail and sharpness.You have the choice between 35mm, 54mm and 75mm. The figure shown here is 75mm.


 

The gargoyle came in two smaller boxes filled with foam. The figure survived the shipping very well and nothing is broken. 

 The first assessment of the individual parts was very good, almost perfect. No support leftovers, everything was printed cleanly and almost no holes from the supports. Those that are available do not interfere with assembly or painting.

 

 

The second surprise followed during the fitting test. The figure fit together perfectly on the first try and held up without patafix and co. What more do you want?! 

 



 

Take a look on the details!

 

...and here is an example of the sharpness.

 

All in all a very nicely printed figure that convinces with its level of detail, sharpness and accuracy of fit. Just stick together and get started. I can only recommend it!

Project Book: A ballad of courage and strange things: a projekt book by Sebastian | Act II Road to WME Serpent part I |

by Sebastian

 

 

Sebastian here

with the Act II, the preparations for the WME start right away. As already mentioned, there are only a good 1,5 months left until the doors open at the WME. I'm curious what that will be, because it's the first WME I've ever attended. Finally seeing some familiar faces again and maybe making some new friends. Who knows?!

But the preparations have been going on in my head for a while. In the end I had to decide what I wanted to finish by then. The final selection was made quickly and so I would like to present my first project to you.
 

Serpent

                                         Image by Ken Kelly

 

Based on the template by Ken Kelly. Ken Kelly is an artist who has done the artwork for Manowar and Kiss, among others. I was immediately captivated by the manner of serpent. I just like the atmosphere and the power. It was clear to me that I didn't want to do a 1:1 adaptation. I then searched for suitable minis and found them quite quickly. Only the serpent took a while until I found one that I liked. Almost everything that appears in this dio has been printed with a 3d printer.

Printing was pretty quick. But I wasn't 100% satisfied with the whole layout and also with the serpent. Even with the base, I was already certain that this would not remain the case. It should be bigger and more dynamic. With a little side scene or two. I was only satisfied with the characters and was allowed to stay. But for the rest, i had to keep looking.









To be continued

FM: Force of Nature

by Roman aka jar

Good Morning Jungle,

time for another finished project from my workbench.
This time it is all about nature and spring. The beast here is a so called "Wendigo" and you might know it from playing the "Witcher" computer games. The model itself is done from "Lord of the Print" and I got myself a printed copy that I put to an epic spring themed base. At least this was the plan, you decide if it worked out in the end ...










The base and the conversion to his head was particular fun. I also added several different small 3D printed animals to his base that also got that evil look! Can you find them all?


I wrote a massive step by step article,
explaining the motivation, concept and execution of this project.
It is included in my "Tutorial: Masterclass - Spring", beside much more content to the topic.

You can find the article on
Here are some examples from the Step by Step - enjoy:

FM: Beastman

by Roman aka jar


Hey Jungle,

I painted this 3D printed Beastman during the private coaching session with Sebastian for explanation purposes on the topic "grimdark". It was a lot of fun explaining the basic principles of the topic on this cool figure.









This miniature is in private collection.
 Hope you like him!

Keep on happy painting!

Review: Private Coaching with Thomas

by Roman aka jar

 


"Man, this coaching was nessessary. After 15 years in the hobby I already learned a lot of things (and probably forgot the half as well) but after all this time I felt stuck in my painting process and in the hardened structures that said me how I have to paint. I didn't felt joy in the way I paint anymore. So I reached out to Roman because my hobby batteries were simply exhausted.

In these 2 days, Roman showed me quite a number of new impressions and really helped me to get out of my box, showed me how to succesfully paint atmosphere and understand colours better. Combined with some fresh approaches about blending really nailed it for me. So now I'm ready for new challenges. 

Above all: Roman is a very pleasant painting companion and I always enjoy the time I can learn from and paint with him."

- Thomas




Thank you for visiting me
for your two days of private coaching,
Thomas.


It has been some relaxed two days with tons to learn and new click moments for my student, but it was great to see your painting skills and understanding of painting grow. The knowledge on how to apply atmosphere into your paintjobs from now on makes me really look forward to what you will come up with it.

I told you there is a difference.
A difference in applying color to a miniature to painting a miniature. Now you got the tools, the eye and the approach to create your worlds in new environment and light. I am very much looking forward to this!

Thank you for your will to learn from me and the nice and good time shared!
Keep on happy painting!

Yours,
Roman
