A modern Prometheus

"No man chooses evil because it is evil, he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks." (Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, 1818)

With the creature and the bride, the little project is now complete. For the first time I made all the figures and props with the Resindrucker, only the base plate came from the good old filament printer. The 3D models are all available for free at MyMiniFactory. I still have great respect for the resin print, the stuff is unfortunately not harmless in the liquid state and you can not just print (as with filament), but must be meticulously observed any safety measures, so as not to irreversibly damage themselves and the environment in the long term. Once cured with UV light, resin loses its terror completely. The current resin printers make things much easier and fluffier to handle, but filament is just child's chocolate in comparison. However, one is rewarded for the effort with models that are hardly distinguishable from industrially produced figures and often enough would not even be available in stores because they are "too niche". The small Frankenstein project is then again the dusty corner of the niche in the niche of the niche.
The figures will certainly end up in a small one-shot scenario on the gaming table, but were primarily for me as a fan of the story of the "modern Prometheus" a matter of the heart. And if you haven't read Mary Shelley's novel yet, you should do so. It's worth it.

The Legacy of Viktor

Viktor is named after his great-grandfather. Like his ancestor, he has a doctorate and tries to find the secret of the life force using his old records.
All parts come from the 3D printer. Putting the whole thing together and painting it was a lot of fun. Viktor got its own base, because the whole thing is not a diorama, but should be playable at wargaming. Oh well, the monster (and his bride) are work in progress and soon will follow, so stay tuned.

Undead in Hazmat Suits

"A few weeks ago, a team of scientists was sent into the zone to secure data from an extremely important project."
"What kind of project?"
"Not of interest to you and your team."
"Radio contact broke off shortly after the science team reported success. Your mission: Find the data tape that the team had recovered."
"Okay, so the tape. What about the scientists?"
"Get the tape out of the zone!"

Postapocalypse: A Resting Place

A resting place for the exhausted.

You just have to be careful that no horrible things crawl out of the depths and drag you down with them. But take a seat, adventurer, and change the filter of your gas mask before heading deeper into the zone.
The base is self-designed with TinkerCAD, the props are free 3D models from Thingiverse. For the broken window of the vending machine I just cut a piece of blister pack.

Star Wars Legion: Moisture Vaporators

"What I really need is a droid who understands the binary language of moisture vaporators."

Scenery tiles 3D printed with a Snapmaker. I'm not happy with the PETG filament, so I replaced the barely used roll after this print and went back to PLA.
