The Posse - Orgbsane's Hobby Thread

Orgbsane's Hobby Thread

With the imminent revival of Heroscape, I've decided to whip my collection into shape! There are many small and large projects that need to be done, and certain portions of my armies to be filled out with 3d printed miniatures. I'll be documenting my journey in this thread!

With the announcement that the miniatures will be unpainted, some have expressed concerns about the time and cost of painting miniatures. I decided to test both of these limiters to get a number on how cheap I could go on paint supplies, and how long it takes to paint a miniature to match Heroscape's standard. With that in mind, I purchased some 3d printed Protectors from TREX (https://www.heroscapers.com/communit...ad.php?t=54809), and the cheapest paint and brushes I could find at Walmart.

I'll list the needed equipment and cost when I do my Protectors post, but before I put my precious Protectors to the brush, I needed to test the paint. And there is a project I have been putting off for literal years... Rebasing my C3G collection.

Re: C3G Rebasing - Orgbsane's Hobby Thread

That's really neat!

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

I'd encourage you to hold off for a bit - especially if you're open to poker cards. There will eventually be an opportunity to print poker card versions in a much more economical way than the hex cards.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Nice basing!

I have an HP ink subscription now, it's wayyyy cheaper than buying ink at the store.
Like $4 a month for me, but there are different plans.

I will totally do that since I was planning on reprinting the rest of my C3G cards as well since they are of various quality/disrepair. The hex cards are iconic, but I'd love to have poker card size for better storage!

I have never heard of an ink subscription before, that is crazy!

Low Cost Painting Test (Protectors of Ullar)

Because of the news that the new Heroscape will be unpainted, there’s been a lot of discussion regarding the cost and time investment needed to paint miniatures. As a test, I decided to buy the cheapest hobby paint at Walmart, Apple Barrel, and see how cheap I could paint a Protector of Ullar. Step by step and results in the spoiler:

Spoiler Alert!

Re: Low Cost Painting (Protectors) - Orgbsane's Hobby Thread

Thanks, y'all! I realized I forgot to add the time it took, as I figured people would be interested in that aspect of it as well. The first Army Painter Protector took me 30 minutes (not including drying time), and the Apple Barrel took around 45. Once I painted them as a group, the time-averaged down to around 20 minutes.
