    A thread for posting both your own stuff, and cool models from around the interweb.


    I'll start us off with a GW Great Unclean One I painted a few years back:

    I have been playing D&D/Pathfinder for 4 years. I have yet to find a miniature that speaks to me as "This is my character."

    I know there's some sites that'll make custom ones. Pretty expensive though iirc

    @Yokai have you seen any models that were almost good enough, but had the wrong head or equipment (for example)?

    @Shasvre Check AliExpress and TaoBao, there's usually recasts available for pennies on the dollar. Be careful when working with hyper-toxic Chinese resin though.

    The price isn't the big issue. I simply can't paint worth a damn. :(

    Model paints these days are the most amazing they've ever been. The Primarch figures are definitely an advanced challenge, but with a small amount of practice and the correct tools and techniques anyone can paint well.

    Yah. Some were very close to being what my characters are.

    I rather get someone else to paint my figures. I used to paint when I was in high school but boy I have no confidence in my abilities. Rather get someone who knows what they are doing.

    If you can find a suitable core model, and other models/components that have what you want added to the core (and don't mind paying for several models, potentially), there are a lot of very skilled modellers out there who could construct and paint the piece for you. I'm sure you can find someone who'd be willing to do it. Hell, I'd offer to do it myself if we were on the same continent.

    Yer, I'm in the south pacific ocean. Postage costs and exchange rates would wind up being pretty brutal, plus the risk of having something that fragile shipped internationally.
