Thank you, I am glad if you like it. :)

Here is the next one, a Battlemaster BLR 4-S from the 6th Lyran Guards RCT, also called the Saucy Sixth. ^^



I got myself a 3d printer last week for christmas. a little bit late, i know... But still... look forward to some Mechwarrior Online Designs... ;)



The Atlas torso was my 2nd print yesterday and for that i'm really happy with the result. :)

I'm usually kind of "meh" about BTech sculpts (their warships appeal more than the mechs to me) but you've got a real knack for making their mechs look great.

Thanks guys :)

The first mech left the forge: a MWO Piranha 20 ton light mech... unfortunaly the MWDA und MWO miniatures dont mix that well dispite the same scale. The 20t Piranha has the same hight as the 85t Battlemaster... O.o

Looks pretty good. The scale thing has always been a thing with Battletech I feel, from the original metals through to the clix minis the sizes are all over the place compared to the stated tonnage.

Great painted figures and nice printed one too  !

what kind of printer did you use ? I saw the files on thingiverse for MWO models, I was not sure it would be really printable.

Hi!

@sundayhero
It's an Anycubic Photon. So far everything has worked what I have printed with it. Of course, there are problems at the beginning until you know how to do everything but then everything works great.

Mechs work... even with custom posing:



At the momentan i'm printing this baby...



14 hours total, 6 hours left... i am so excited :D

And finally at last... i painted some printed Manticore tanks for Horizon Wars:



I know, these are no hexbases but it will work it out for AlphaStrike... Somehow. Roundbases are just more my personal taste.

Very cool. That Anycubic has been calling to me in my dreams. Did you get it off Amazon? Aliexpress?
More questions, did you desing it yourself on blender or just use it for positioning the pieces?

Thanks, yes i got it from Amazon.

No, i'm not designing these myself. I just started friday night with some tutorials on youtube how to use Blender and manipulate the files found on thingiverse... The Archer is the first "real reposing", that's the reason why i'm so excited. ^^

Cool. Those others are a bit static. Some more dynamic poses will really make them great!

Hi!

@beefcake: Yep, the Archer is printed and even with closed hatches it looks really good.

Btw:There is a new addition to the Kurita Forces
