for my hobby efforts this past month! I've been out of resin and running low on alcohol to clean the printed models so I haven't actually printed anything in a while. I've kept busy though tweaking/converting 3d models for potential future printing though from scifi RPG character models to Star Trek spaceships to Heavy Gear stompy robots.
I restarted tweaking my old HGA Heavy Gear
Hunter model yet again. I had problems with the two prints that I
previously attempted and I tweaked the loadout on this version to be a
basic Hunter instead. I previously attempted a multipiece print for my
second try but wasn't happy with the results. After some encouragement
from Ashley over at the Paint it Pink blog (link), I decided to try it
again and was eventually able to both split the parts and set up a ball
and socket connection system between the parts.
One of the flawed gems of the last console/pc generation was IMO the first Force Unleashed game (the followup was admittedly a rushed cashgrab abomination!). I really liked the look of the Sith Stalker variant of the character model and never saw an official model/miniature other than a single toy figure in a larger boxed set. I recently found a decent 3d model likely ripped from the pc game so it definitely needed conversion to a printable tabletop gaming 3d model. I thickened up various bits to make them sturdier/more likely to print successfully as well as changed the pose as much as I could without any actual knowledge of video game animation.
And finally we have a selection of Star Trek ships that have been converted into something that more resembles a different era. First up we have a DISCO ship that I've converted into an NX era ship. The second is another DISCO ship that I've tried to convert into a TMP era Akira class.
