    Nice work about Magnus! I like the different tones you used to paint the base, it shows off the character. The final rendering is very colorful, good job!
    And good luck for your next project, this mini seems rather complicated to paint.

    I thought I'd take a break from the Warhammer stuff and do something different, so yesterday I 3D printed the busts of some iconinc comic book characters: Judge Dredd, Deadpool and Superman. These minis are about 3" tall, and so far Dredd is the only one that's got his makeup on. Deadpool and Superman are waiting their turn.

    Thanks. I did a bit more work on the base and the helmet (made it a bit more glossy) and a little cleanup .

    This model, along with others were designed by a guy named David Eastman. You can download this, and other works from the link below:

    Awesome Dredd bust!

    Since I posted Dredd, I bought a new 3D printer and ran a whole bunch of prints, including a few more busts. Here is the latest print job. I was going for a wood carve look, but It's not that good, but I do like the way Cap' came out.

    Cool idea for painting the Cap! Bust looks pretty good, only recommendation would be to try to sand down the printer lines (although I can only see ones in the star on his chest). One other thing that would help is some shading and highlighting on it but other than that good job.

    Default Speaking of Deadpool....

    I just found this model on the web, and I think it's got to be one of my all time faves.

    It doesn't get any more iconic than this constant rivalry.

    Here is the model fresh out of the printer

    Usually I start painting the characters, then the diorama/base. This time around I switched things around. I think it came out pretty good.

    That's great sculpt and a crispy print to boot. Base painting looking nice too.

    So, I was having a hell of a time trying to paint Wolvie and Deadpool, I just couldn't get my paintbrush in between the 2 to get a decent layer of paint, and then there were a lot of accidental paint spots in wrong areas that needed to be fixed, and with each layer I was loosing some of the subtle details like the textures of the costumes. Here is what it looks like . Not happy with it, so I'm not sure I'm going to continue painting this one.

    But, I separated the 2 models, and printed them in a few parts, so now I can finally paint each one separately and hopefully do a better job.

    Looking forward to where this is going, the start you've got on the base is solid!

    So, a quick work in progress update. Painting each one separately makes a world of difference. On the other hand, getting a solid layer of yellow using Vallejo paints is next to impossible. Using and airbrush I first applied a couple of layers of their "Extra Opaque" Heavy Ochre, which is the closest thing to a high-pigment yellow they have, then put on at least 5 coats of their Sun Yellow, yet on the raised areas it was still showing some of the black primer. The blue and flesh tones are pretty good, they go on smooth and opaque with only a few thin layers, but I'm really beginning to hate the yellow.

    Still working on Deadpool, but he's coming along fine. The Vallejo Heavy red is pretty good, and dry brushing a lighter red (Bloody Red) worked well. Here's a shot of the work in progress.

    Finished... well almost. I can't find the piece of blade that's supposed to stick through Wolverine's arm, and I'm not going to start the printer just to print that tiny piece. Next time I print something else, I'll print it and glue it place. other than that, it's done.
