Paramour of the Morpheus Rift (40k minor xenos)
« on: October 30, 2016, 01:27:37 PM »
I entered Beasts of War's Hobbyween competition and finished this earlier today.


The Paramours of the Morpheus Rift were only mentioned once in a single sentence on an old incarnation of the GW website :

“The threat posed by the Paramours of the Morpheus Rift is too terrible to dwell upon, and it is fortunate indeed these abominations are confined to a relatively small area of space towards the otherwise uninhabitable galactic core.”


So I decided to adopt them as my own and make my own design and model for them.

The model was 3d modelled and 3d printed. I got Zealot to 3d print the model, as they are doing the prints for my own wargame to.

I did a number of units but went with the Reaper in the end :



And cos I'm a nerd :




The print came in 5 components which I had to pin and superglue :

Lovely paint job and diorama work there.  How much did that cost to get printed?  And, obviously, would you be willing to sell more if someone were interested?

Thanks! It cost Ł95 to be printed, and is unfortuantly uncastable due to how I modelled various parts of it.

Oof.  Far too much, easier to sculpt my own.  3D printing costs are outrageous.

Yeah, they are unfortuantly :( the upside is the casting/moulds are quite cheap. I do hope printing costs come down in time though as I agree it's pretty insane.

Nice, puts me in mind of the Dayak from the film Immortal (Ad Vitam) so that's going on my watch list for tomorrow!

I always neglected the fluff in 40k which is a shame as I know it's very rich - top job for taking a snippet and turning
it into this piece  8)
