Fun! I played around with the Hero Forge thing and made up minis for several of my characters including Daniella, Viper, Zari, and my PnP character, but I haven't ordered any of them at this point. Are you happy with the quality and which materials did you use for yours? I know they had various upgrades and such, so just curious. Thanks for sharing!
Iri's axe and shield model looks very, "WOOO! Come at me, bro!" I can see it. *nods a few times*
I have fond memories of Early Jennara's Purple Dress, so yay! ...but once my mind decided Mini Jennara was raising her hand for a fist bump, I couldn't unsee it, so it has now changed my whole impression of Mini Jennara... sorry!
I like Gulnyr's model but Acacea only met him like once, I think, so I primarily know of him through Cole's stories and a gallery pic that permanently ruinedaltered a song's lyrics for me long ago. Alas, with the death of gallery captions, the "cuz every girl's crazy 'bout a short fat man" context has disappeared...
(I tried to make an Acacea on that site once and she looked like a deranged muppet. It was pretty tempting!)
((Edit, memory's? @#$#, keyboard?))
These are printed in the beta grey plastic. They're similar in toughness to other hard plastic minis. They don't seem fragile -- at least, not any more than any tiny plastic thing. If you look really close, you can see a contour map-like pattern from the 3D printing, but it's invisible from normal viewing distance and didn't interfere with the painting at all. Here's a super-close-up where you can see the contours on her torso and arm:
Thanks! That helps. I may order a few as gifts for the holidays.
I remember painting hundreds of miniatures back in the 80's and 90's. they were all cast lead. Nice to see a big improvement on this and that theres still a demand for these that a mfgr. would do this.
I also remember not needing glasses to see that close in order to paint them.
Sucks getting old. Ha!
Going to try an make one of just me. Not the D&D character, but a model for the dungeonmaster.
I was just looking over the things they've added since the last time I looked and saw the cat base item! I love how it changes pose with you. Wish there was a dog. Danto would ride again... Also kind of a bummer that you can't rotate the other base items around, the lantern and skull and stack of books and stuff just sitting at the back looks weird.
*petitions for belt-of-many-keys*
Haha! I call it, "please don't feed the animals" or "you can't have my supper" *shifty*
Edit: And here we have the WerechickenBird Lord showing his friends the egg he just laid! Okay, I'm done, sorry.
I had to make one with Ami and her fireball. She got in a lot of trouble with that spell. Well, Thunderclap too, but no graphic for that one.
I've finished two more: a more mature Jennara and an Iri Ambercress!.
Not super satisfied with the cuts in the shield. The metal rim dents looks fine (they look like dents, but they're just paint), but the wood is a little off somehow. Shouldn't have been quite so parallel, either.
Gulnyr the Grim is coming along.
After seing this I made a before and after of Lia for fun.
I call the first one "Condescension" and the second "Aren't you taking your dislike for my flute playing a bit too far?"
