I had a fantastic meetup a week ago or so with the folks at Imagimod and Killer Minnow Studios. It was great to be able to give my feedback as it pertained to their 3D printed figures. I was able to take one home and paint it up for them, and found that the material was very accepting and agreeable.
(If you are not aware of the 3D printing technology, this information will help get you acquainted)
The printed material did not need any priming, and the normal amount of coverage with hobby acrylic (Games Workshop and P3) applied. It took weathering well, and I am sure you will agree the outcome was pretty spectacular. I only painted one half as requested, and I think it was brilliant to do it this way. You really get to see the difference between the basic colored material and hand painted.
I hope to work with these gents in the future, they are a great bunch of guys and have some game-changing plans. Please go click on the links above and give them a follow. They have a Kickstarter launching soon and I plan on supporting them, and you should too. Do it, or we will send the ninjas after you.
Check out the painted mech below, and feel free to comment if you have any thoughts on it!
(A big thanks to Rachel, Kevin, Steve, Chris x2, Rob, Zack and everyone else involved. Good times and exciting things!)
