Painting and Modelling / Re: 54mm Staff Car
« Last post by Aurelius on Yesterday at 03:29:53 AM »
Thanks all :)

That's a good idea. Nice work.
Did you cut out the glass or stick paper inside?
I ditched the interior (kept for later as nice in-scale couches) and stuck thin carboard inside. Cheap and nasty but they came out ok

Man I wish I could find more stuff like this - I can never find well-scaled vehicles.

Which parts have you used for those two characters?

Me too normally. I would really like to make some more mining vehicles and so on, you just need a keen eye for conversion possibility.

Here's my project log for those two characters, including much nicer pics :)

Printing out the character wholesale wouldn't really give it any of the uniqueness that makes Inquisitor characters. (And is more pushing the bounds of legality).

More than that, it's not actually that easy.
Game models are very rarely suitable for 3D printing, and need to be modified - the actual mesh is usually fairly low poly (much of the detail comes from textures and bump mapping*), would need all the gaps between fingers/weapons/etc welded up, etc.

*For example, in the earlier picture, the various Celtic designs on the Sisters armour are "painted on" - the graphics shaders use a special texture to tell it how to shadow them in real time so they look like they have actual depth.

Heads are usually detailed enough that they'd just need some basic welding before they could be exported without too much more ado, but an entire game model could take a lot of work to turn into a decent miniature.
I suppose it's possible if you really want, but that'd be a proper commission job.

Nifty.
If I could get this character fully 3d printed, that would solve a lot of my conversion woes - I'm currently using a Black Dog female soldier sculpt as the basis for this - but she's a lefty, while Jill is a righty, so I have arm related issues too.
But yes, a head would be most helpful - I'm largely looking for a reasonably approximate head with similar hair/features/expression.
I should be able to fill in the rest myself.

If I could get it 3d printed though...

I'm not really much good on finding specific parts - I'm rather DIY when it comes to these things.

If you want the cheeky solution, we are talking about a video game character, so just 3D-printing the head from the game model* would be a theoretical option.

* I've actually already got the game model, as well as several other RE characters. For the CGI image** from the "back cover" of the most recent version of IRE, the Battle Sister's face is actually a modified version of Rebecca Chambers' head.
** There's a medium-res colour version here (prior to Photoshop's "Charcoal" filter), if you're interested.

Okay, so I'm thinking of modelling this lady.

However, while I've located a suitable torso that I can decorate with GS straps and padding, I'm lacking a suitable head.
Similarly arms, but there's an option for that, albeit an expensive one.

Any suggestions on suitable heads?

I looked at the Aurora miniatures 54mm 1/32 (I think) British female tank officer, and that's close, just needs a hair alteration, but I'm hoping for something better that I can just attach a beret to instead.

Well, the response so far is hardly a resounding vote of confidence. I suppose I don't need many people, but I do have a back-up plan.

If there's people who just want a game day rather than worrying about any of the new-fangled IRE nonsense, I'm content to set it up as a conventional three game narrative day; I can run any games I am GMing as IRE rules, but any other tables will be free to run with LRB rules.

If we do it that way, anyone who's wary of IRE can just avoid the games I'm running for the day.

(This is arguably easier for me, as it will let me focus on running one game rather than having to tutor several).

No idea on scale as it is a toy car, but I would hesitantly put it around 1/24. Bit big but hey sci fi, and even my power armour inquisitor could fit in there! It will comfortably fit 2 in the front and 4 in the back, so perfect warband transport

I should be free on the 20th May. So count me in.
