Great stuff! Love the dinosaurs, really gives a nice Lost Worlds vibe to the Archipelago, quite fitting! :)

The elephant men look awesome, great sculpting and brushwork. For me the big hammers/clubs reinforce the image that they're opponents you'd rather not mess with, unless you're in the company of a powerfull wizard :) Well done!

Thank you! We played the Erithean Graveyard scenario a while back, and of course I had to deal with all of the elephant men spawning on my side of the table.

That's quite unfortunate, especially after taking all the effort to paint them up nicely, not much of a thank you >:( :D During our first campaign we had a scaly worm that had it in for elves, he Always showed up in their rear, being quite a nuisance... >:( :)

A couple more monsters painted. Not much to say really.

Nice - where did you get the ghost/banshee ?

Thank you, it's a WizKids unpainted DnD miniatures. I've just drybrushed it a little bit to make the details visible.

Malifaux. The gremlin line has a number of nicely sculpted animals. I've left off the gremlins being eaten, but they seem designed to give you that choice.

An expansion for the Descent boardgame. Good game, and a great source of monsters for Frostgrave.

Got a model from Hero Forge the other day. It's a nifty website that lets you design your own miniatures and have them 3D printed. A bit expensive, sure, but fun. This model is inspired by a piece of artwork that I stumbled across on the net, and I've seen nothing like it in miniature so I decided to give it a go and get one printed.

It showed up with visible print strata, but painted up better then I thought really. What do you think?

Very nice!

Can you tell us more about the quality of the Hero Forge minis?  They seem excellent but I've been afraid to make an order.  I've seen 3D printed at work and the didn't look great.

I got the Premium Plastic which on a quick overview seems to be the only real choice to me. Detail is decent to good, sometimes a little bit shallow but painted up ok as per above. The eyebrows were just about visible on the model after primer.

The plastic is hard, a touch brittle, and the arrow was bent a little bit. There are no mold lines, but a few tabs left from print supports. On the bare model, you do see the different layers from the printer, but they can be sanded on larger surfaces. Either way, I don't feel they show much at all once painted.

I like hero forge miniature (yes expensive) but you can have fun with the designing and you get what you want.  I did these last year http://bandit86.blogspot.com/2017/03/hero-forge-painted.html and have just order 2 more for a frost grave war band.      

 I placed an order to Hero Forge on June 3rd it arrived today June 8th
Both the figures I designed were perfectly rendered with hardly any print lines that I can see without magnification and I can't see much cleanup that needs to be done. I was pleased with the ones I got last year  but the quality and service is even better now. Yes the price is high but you get something you design (which is fun in itself) to your specification and now a week from concept to delivery...well worth it. Thanks for the super service
