My son has bought me the Survivor in X-01 armour and the armoured Dogmeat; the detail is heads and shoulders about the plastic stuff I've seen.

Good to know.  I was disappointed in Cait and Piper - the faces are very soft features.

And a big post of stuff - I've been painting (less involved stuff than my greenhouse, though - not everything need to be a showpiece, because I use a lot of this for more than one genre) terrain and few figs here and there.

I have found that I really like 3d printed terrain when it is done well.

A bombed chateau - that I think looks perfect for my Scooby Gang to investigate.





A pair of building I picked up when someone was getting out of Fallout Wasteland Warfare - I had to repaint them, as they were...not great...and they weren't put together well, but they'll do as long as I put enough fluff around them.




And I have been experimenting with Clanmac's slat technique, but I find that it is not as easy to use with 3d prints, and the paint runs along the tiny little lines between layers, and the salt sticks above them.  All in all, a decent first try.  I also poured resin into the one tank to be water, and tried a technique I had seen where you paint several layers of color to simulate fish between pours.






And finally, a set of security fences to add yet another layer of barrier to moving around in the wasteland.

Wow, that 3d printer is earning its money right now. Lovely stuff. The chateau is superb.

It's not big, or clever, but let's do it anyway

Oh my, it has been a few months since I posted in this thread.

Well, new stuff is here!

We had a weekend recently that I ended up iced in here in the Northwest of the US, and I finally buckled down and finished up my Mirelurk Horde.  I purchased the deal from Moephidius, and since I received that, I also have gotten a 3D resin printer as a Christmas present, so I printed some of my own Mirelurks - from the 3D models you see in the loading screens for Fallout 4.  I also added a couple of other models that felt like Mirelurks to me.

I was aiming for a similar color scheme to an Eastern Atlantic Blue Crab - it appealed to me, and I tried get that mix of blue, green, yellow, and red.

This is the original pair of Mirelurks from the deal.


This is L-R Moephidius, printed Nukalurk, printed Mirelurk


This is the whole group.


Mirelurk Hunters


A monster lobster and Rocket Pig Games Krusscanta.


A scratchbuilt model from bits and bobs I have around.


A GW Trygon (I think)


The Mirelurk Queen.



Full horde picture.

And finished at the same time, some printed power armor stations, 1 with an X-01 in it.

Loving it all mate, especially the Mirelurks.
