Now, it's all about the printouts.
I was asked a few months ago to whip up some simple, utilitarian civilian vehicles that would be at home in the Critical Mass Games universe. The work went quickly and smoothly, and I believe the client is happy.
I went through Paul at VisionProto.com for the printing of these digital files.
The work was done on a new machine, and it's very nice.
Smooth, clean, and very easy on the support structure "rivets" that are the byproduct of the printing process.
I raided the penny jar, and stacked each model up on a column of five US pennies, to give them a slight "float" affect next to based and standing figures.
The knife is there for self-defense and cleaning under my fingernails, since digital sculpting is, you know, a real high-risk occupation. ;)
Arc Fleet Augment Drop Trooper, and a Zas Ravager Mecha.
Blackguard Heavy Support Mecha, which I have given the callsign of "Cookie," next to the prints. These shots look like they were taken with a potato, and are pretty washed out and unfocussed. Sorry.
No chance for reshooting the blurred pics, since the 3D prints are winging their way to the UK as we speak.
Thanks for letting me show off.
I can't wait to see what Craig and Dale do, paintjob-wise, with these new offerings when they debut them at Salute 2014 (provided the postman holds up his end of the deal, of course).
I will make sure and let you know when they're for sale.
Who knows...maybe they'll be stretch goals in a possible Kickstarter from CMG that might be happening in the next few months.
But then again, you didn't hear that from me. ;)
PS...Yes, I know that's the old link to their first KS. Stay tuned.
PPS...If you're on Twitter, so am I, @johnbearross
PPPS...More importantly, so is Craig from CMG. @CMGcraig
Lots of pics of the upcoming Salute board, as well as things you may not realize have been put into production (cough)ArcFleetWalkerUpgradeKit
