    Default I got my typhon printed and now to paint!

    I wasn't sure where to post this. Originally I had started a thread on the Fan Art section but now I have gotten to the point where I am ready to paint him up. So here he is:







    I figure I can get more feedback and help with the actual painting process here then I could on the fan art page. Anyways, hope you guys enjoy.

    Oh yeah and heres the 3d model I sculpted to get the print:

    that looks pretty awesome. I have to ask, what do you mean by the term "printed." I can see its a technical term of some sort in this context, so what does that mean?

    my goodness its typhon extreme. it is hard to tell without it being primes but it looks AWESOME

    how sturdy is the material? how expensive was it? could you print more? that would make a great gift for a legion player of mine

    in other words.


    AWESOME!!!!!!

    man that white blob is at its feet is a large base, that is ridicules

    it's a 3D printout from a CAD program if I'm not mistaken. I probably designed it through a cad program and then had it created by a 3D printer that works by utilizing a powder resin that is solidified by a liquid catalyst, or it could have been a laser light catalyst. I'm sure he'll respond to let us know what kind of printer was used, after all, we are all curious. BTW, it looks awesome!!!!!

    I have to say I like your transition between the heads and the main body far more than on the original. He's a really awesome looking, sculpt? I'm not quite sure how to descibe it.

    My god, both the 3D model (you should seriously consider going into a job for that sort of thing if you're not already) and the material mini itself are drool worthy.

    Some were decided, some were not
    A few looked away, but none forgot

    To ask a slightly intrusive question.

    How much did that printing cost, and how well does the material take to paint?

    Thank you very very much guys!

    docsid: teejay pretty much nailed it on the head. the only thing different that i would add is that the original sculpt was done in ZBrush and exported out in stl format for the 3d printers.

    PG_fuzzypants: the resin used was very high quality and pretty sturdy. i wouldnt exactly throw it out the window but it is sturdy enough where it wont break apart if it falls over. kinda imagine a resin garage kit if you know what i mean. as far as reproduction or sale goes i can not in good conscience do that so this will be a one off for my own legion obsession. sorry buddy

    teejayv, DemonCalibre, tonyzahn: i go to these guys http://www.cadcam4u.com/
    their website got alot of good info on the tech. the company's owner was introduced to me by a buddy of mine and his shop was not far from where i work. as for price, i paid $150 for him and hes about 3 inches tall. i hope i can post up the based model soon to show the details off to you guys. up close he looks exactly like the 3d model and since he was never cast, he never lost any of the details.

    oh and the printing paints pretty well. just make sure to wash it properly as when they first give it to you it has a coat of soap/waxy substance that is part of the printing process. once its been properly cleaned it is not much different from a resin kit. if anyone has ever worked with a forgeworld mini they know what i mean.

    to the rest of you guys thank you very much for the support! you have no idea how much of a boost i got from this.

    Now, that rocks!

    Love to see a step-by-step when you paint it to see how the painting goes on the material choosen for the figure.

    Wow! I too saw it in the fan art section but seeing it as an actual miniature is going to be TOTALLY SWEET! Man, I wish I had access (or even the skill!) to use 3D software and printers. You must have had fun designing this. What kind of expense is involved with printing him?

    Do you have the original Typhon model? A side by side size comparison would be great.

    This is the awesome-sauce. It's almost tempting to give it a half-transparent glaze and have it be a "Spectral Typhon", heh. Heck, it'd be tempting to make a Cryx army like that.

    I can only hope your an excellent studio quality painter, cause that would be a shame for that to have a couple red smears for eyes if ya know what I mean...

    Again...

    Holy ****...awesome. Just awesome.

    how long did it actually take you to design that from beginning to end, and how user friendly is the program? I've used CAD, and it's not really all that simple, you definitely need training for it.

    Hey guys, heres a small update. My camera sucks so I'm gonna wait till tomorrow to take pictures of him while primed.

    I dont have the original typhon but I had him posed next to my carnivean. The carnivean looks a hell of alot better in person. For the life of me I have no clues how you guys take such great pics. Enjoy!

    Wow. That is just ... astonishing. Seriously, it is a beautiful sculpt; no question, I'd be very happy to lay down money for that as an official release. In fact TBH I think it's better even than the official sculpt, which I've always really liked in its own right.

    Kudos, man.

    As time goes on and this type of "printing" becomes cheaper, minis companies are going to have a hard time keeping a handle on their IPs.

    This is great work. I wonder if the soft-copy original could be cut into several parts and printed in those pieces to facilitate mold-making and casting....PP should hire you!

    Aagh. This is like Banachucks warmachine cards. This thing done by a forum memeber is just so cool when compared to the PP original and I can't get one!

    Honestly, offer this to PP as the Typhon Extreme. I'll buy this model again no problem.

    I can't believe how beautiful it is. You really reached into your brain and pulled out a winner definately. I am really looking forward to then end result. Next, a new Gorax model...that is right...the original has to go. Too bad you can't bend the claws of his left leg over and around the rock he is based on like he is gripping it...it does look off a bit in the pictures.

    If they made this into the Typhon extreme...I would buy one....or more. That is a nice model!

    Did you print it as one solid piece?

    Beautiful rendering! I like the relative more spiky-ness of your Typhon.

    Love, time, + money = a beautiful creation.

    No, really. With your skill, I'd like to see a redone Deathjack. I already have plans to redo my current one at some point because I don't care for the paintjob or things like the skulls. Gimme' something else!

    I think that PP would be fools if they didn't offer you hard cash for the file so they could get their own made and cast. Seriously it's cool that you can have the only one in existence but something that cool and in a format that can easily be copied should be shared.

    Amazing work BTW.

    Knew a little about the technology involved in creating this. Your model is a nice example of what can be done.

    Looks like he's on a 50mm base for correctness, but then that got stuck on a 60mm GW base to prevent him from falling over on his face(s). I personally would just have gotten a metal 50mm base - I'd hate to have to DQ a gorgeous thing like this in one of my events over something mundane like base size.
