Xaar: Zyntari Engineer by dutchmogul May 7, 2013

Description

Part of a Zyntari Combine prospecting team, Xaar and his brethren came to Nexus City to appraise the hub world for invasion. As Xaar grew fond of the strange place and its colorful inhabitants, he felt himself grow apart from the imperial creed and decided to stay, opening his own robotics repair shop and ferrying paying customers through the local Omnisphere (a skill he had learned as part of his duties to the Combine).

Xaar is modeled in 54mm scale and is an RPG character created by Thingiverse user knutsford and modeled by myself.

Isn't it though?? They call it a Santa Claus machine for a reason ;-) This was the kind of thing I dreamed about when I was a kid. Better late than never though, eh?
Thanks, Perry. Yeah, painting the models is one of the things I bring to the hobby, for sure. That's just always been my bag, since I first slapped paint onto a lead minotaur ;-) I'm no master-class painter or anything, but I was surprised that I didn't see more people doing it. I'm enjoying printing in this scale, to be sure. This gets me a lot closer to being able to show the full details than the standard 28mm scale does, but I'm looking forward to the point that home printing gets there.

As always a really nice paint job.
I think painting the models is one part of this "hobby"
which is extremely under promoted.
Part of the fun is personalizing them with paint.
