Drow Assassin
jesper15 Thanks.
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. These are supposed to be the two Drow lieutenants at Velkynvelve in Out of the Abyss. To make the right one (that's Shoor) I cut back the coat to make a short cloak, removed the hood and changed the hair, shrunk the belt and buckle, turned both hands 90 degrees and changed the weapons. I may have needed to make the ears as well (I don't remember if there are any under the hood). The hair is in the model a short top tail, but it failed printing and I didn't bother redoing it. The right mini is Jorlan, the disfigured one. For him I hanged the hair to be loose over the back, and added large scars on his face, one ear and his right hand. He is also missing two fingers on that hand. The tip of his arrow also failed to print, but I made do. I see now that I over-painted on a few places on him. The blotchy metal paint on the chests is my attempt to paint chainmail on a smooth surface. I find altering models to fit a new purpose to be fun, and its great that your models usually have weapons and shields as separate shells, making it easy to swap them around.
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. One of my players plays a Drow Rogue who colors his hair blue. So, I started with this model, removed the hood and changed the hair. During the campaign he was bitten by a Wererat and missed the save. For that mini I switched the head to the one from your Wererat model and merged it with the ponytail. I didn't get the colors quite the same, though. I forgot the tail while modelling, so I added it afterwards out of epoxy putty. The first one is from before I started using Meshmixer's smoothing brush, as clearly illustrated on the back of the coat. I find that a lot easier than sanding afterwards. (Besides, the dust from sanding resin prints is toxic.)

Giant Octopus
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. Made this as the "Giant Rocktopus" encounter from Out of the Abyss. Very nice looking model. I wish I had printed it without the base and added that later. With the base attached, it was an absolute pain to paint among the folds of the arms.

Fungi - Gas Spore
jesper15 Printer: Wanhao Duplicator i3+ (Prusa i3 clone), 0.1 mm layer height. I tried to go for the look in the Monster Manual, but it was really hard to pull off. I was kind of surprised when one of my players said that she couln'd see the mushrooms on top as anything other than phallic - they just look like mushrooms to me. Eye of the beholder, I guess. ;) Pretty easy print. I got a bit of stringing on top, and some sagging on the bottom. In all, probably less post-processing than if I had used supports. The connection to the base is just a clear acrylic rod from a hobby store.

Human Male Sorcerer
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. One of my players is playing an Aasimar Sorcerer, and I found this model to fit her description very well. Making it female was pretty easy, I pulled in the waist and chest, gave her a bit of breasts, separated the left sleeve from the thigh and simply scaled down the lower half to make her shorter and match the new waist. I also gave the face a couple of light touches. The orb is just a sphere, and the backpack is taken from one of your other models. Aside from some layer misalignment problems on the sleeves, it turned out as I wanted it. I love the folds on the skirt - I'm really impressed with how natural the fall of clothes look on your models.

Duergar Darkshaft
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. I like the pose and as always the detail level, but the belt pouches look kind of strange when they float like that. The splotchy look on the chest is my attempt to paint chain mail on a flat surface.

Duergar
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. Made 3 normal-sized ones and one double-sized one to use for when they use Enlarge. The large one made it so much more tangible for my players when one of them suddenly grew. The model easily had enough detail to just scale like that, and it looks even better in the larger size. I did use a smoothing brush on it, but I think i did that on the small one before even scaling. The smoothing brush creates a more random pattern of triangles than what one would do by hand, and that makes them much less noticeable in the final result. You can compare with the shield, where I wanted to avoid destroying the angular look. For reference, I use Meshmixers's Sculpt -> RobustSmooth with 6% strength, adjust target triangle size through brush size, 25% Refine, 45% Reduce, Fixed Boundary on, use a light touch, only apply it to large areas that should be smooth, and stay away from sharp edges and details.

Carrion Crawler
jesper15 Thanks, We'll see if I decide to put them online somewhere else.
jesper15 Printer: Wanhao Duplicator i3+ (Prusa i3 clone), 0.1 mm layer height, except for the tentacle cluster that turned out terrible, so I redid that on my Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. The antennae are metal wires. I'm not that pleased with this one, except for the eyes.

Dire Wolf
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. Hollowed out, holes closed with epoxy resin. I had a bit of trouble generating supports due to the unclosed shells on the neck, but with a little stubbornness it worked out fine. I really like the way this model looks. I am looking forward to springing this one on the druid in my group the next time she wild shapes into one.

Derro
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. I changed the hair and beard to make him look like Buppido from Out of the Abyss. Pretty basic paint job, doesn't take much for that small a figure.

Black Pudding
jesper15 Printer: Wanhao Duplicator i3+ (Prusa i3 clone), 0.1 mm layer height. Solid black coat + clear varnish.

Water Weird
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. Printed in one piece, hollowed out, in clear resin. After removing the support marks, the only thing I did was give it a clear coat of varnish. It would have looked even better solid, but the print would probably have failed if I had tried. I have been meaning to try filling it with epoxy resin, but hadn't gotten around to it. Writing this message inspired me to go and start it at once, though. I'll post a new photo once that is done - should be at least 4 days, it takes a couple of days to set and I need two pours due to the shape.

Red Dragon (Updated)
jesper15 @mz4250 Thank you.
jesper15 Printer: Wanhao Duplicator i3+ (Prusa i3 clone), 0.1 mm layer height. This was one of the first minis I printed. It was a test of how well large minis would print on my printer. Printed in one piece (to test how that went). The print took 19h, and removing the supports was a pain and a half. It's probably best to do as recommended and print it in parts. :) I printed it a year and a half ago, and hadn't gotten around to painting it until now. Medium size character for scale. I tried a painting technique I hadn't tried before for this one: Pretty light colors for basecoat, watered down black ink all over to mute it down, then drybrushed highlights. Worked out pretty well, except I'm not pleased with the horns.

Gnoll
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. This is a wonderfully detailed model, but I wish I had replaced the spear, it is way too thin and breaks easily. I made 9 with spears, 2 with bows and one leader with a glaive and a bow. The spearmen have probably suffered about 2 spear breakages each on average by now. For anyone wanting to try out this model, the spear is a separate shell, so it is very easy to replace with a sturdier one. I looked at the updated Gnoll model, and for anyone are using an FDM printer, I'd suggest using that one, but for an SLA printer, I'd suggest this one with the spear from the other one. I didn't get the problem with then breaking at the knees described below, but the tails were kind of easy to break. The bow and quiver the three with bows have are taken from another of your models, I forget which one. The glaive I found somewhere else and scaled down, but it wasn't suited for minis at all - I had to strengthen it afterwards. This was a huge project, the model is very detailed and have lots of small straps that are tricky to paint. Looking back I should not have tried making 12 at once. I didn't get the skin color I wanted on them, it contrasts weirdly against the hair. All in all I am pleased, as the details came out very well.

Darkmantle
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. My supports weren't quite up to snuff on this one. I made 6, and lost some of the tips of the tentacles on a few of them. To anyone trying this one on an SLA printer, I recommend lots of care with the support there. It might have been better to print them upside-down, but I didn't want support scars on the head. I used clear resin, and with a coat of clear varnish the stand became very transparent. I considered making a few with hollowed out insides to be able to place on top of characters, but in the end just didn't glue on the stands. Putting the on top of another mini kind of works. It's a nice model, I like that it isn't completely symmetric, but instead has organic variations.

Hyena
jesper15 Oh, I forgot to mention, It's scaled x2, since it is supposed to be a Giant Hyena.
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. I needed a Giant Hyena for the druid in my group (she keeps popping new wild shapes on me without warning). Printed nose-up, hollowed out. Holes closed with epoxy putty. (Miliput, that stuff is awesome.) Painting the spots was a bit tedious, otherwise pretty easy to paint. I have started separating the models from the base in Meshmixer, and gluing it to a base once I have painted them. I find that it is much easier to paint it when there isn't a big ol' base in the way. Also, that lets me print the bases on my FDM printer, saving on the resin.

Mimic - Chest
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. I separated the lid and body and printed them separately. The closed one was pretty simple to stitch together in Blender. The glue seam between the lid and body is kind of weak and has already failed once. I don't think I could have gotten the teeth as good without separating the parts, though.

Spectator
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. Printed in two hollowed-out halves to save resin. I had to re-do the tongue because I added too little support. Worked out tin the end, though.

Otyugh
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. Hollowed out (recommended for larger prints on SLA printers), closed holes with epoxy putty. I struggled a bit to get the mottled texture I wanted, but it got fairly close in the end.

Duergar Xarrorn
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. Very little support was needed. I used a spray matte varnish on the whole thing and a brushed-on clear varnish on top of that for the metal areas. Aside from the spear being a bit bendy, it works very well.

Grell
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. I had a lot of trouble with adding supports for this one. I use Meshmixer for supports, since Cura's doesn't work well for SLA printers, and Meshmixer got confused by this one having several open interlocking shells. In the end I opened it up in Blender and merged all the shells into one. After that, adding supports was easy, and it turned out lovely. I especially love the brain.

Green Hag
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. I had some trouble with layer alignment while printing this, that is the reason for the horizontal lines and weird jinks in the hair. Not the model's fault. :) Otherwise easy to print with very little support, and relatively easy to paint.

Troll
jesper15 Printer: Peopoly Moai (SLA printer), 0.025 mm layer height. Easy to print and easy to paint. The model feels very much like my image of a troll. I can't remember now, but I probably used the smoothing brush in Meshmixer to get a smoother surface on some parts.
