Actually the printer painted it I just assembled but I take your point.
I used DoW2 model and base textures for making the template but DoW2 uses greyscale textures and shaders to color it. I'm by no means a pro at image manipulation so yeah I guess the colors are off a bit, I also don't have painter class color sense (one of the reasons I don't paint my models)
So please interpret the (Hive Fleet Leviathan) as (Hive Fleet Leviathan*) ... *It's intended to b.
Its a basic human shape with some extras, If I'd make something Eldar it would be one of their walkers like WarWalkers or WraithLorg/Guard. But i still dont intend to make anything 40k for a while, and I'd probably make a Tau Pathfinder with a Drone and rail rifle.
When I first started using it I had some experience with UV unfolding and it was kind of a no-brainer from there. If you can't find anything you can check out some Unfold3D tutorials to get the basic idea, but there's a chance it'll make you more confused, U3D is for UV unfolding and while it has similar interface and workflow its not exactly like pepakura.
This one is made out of 180 gsm plain paper (office)
But some of my more recent ones are made 180 gsm matte photo paper. Its basically a choice between better edges vs better colors (for me). Plain paper does not have such vibrant colors no matter how you print (inkjet mind you), but the ink penetrates more deaply and its harder to damage it during assembly. With photo paper the ink remains in the upper layer and much easyer to scrape off, also the edges tend to fray more easily, so its much harder to work with and the edges are somwhat more visible but the colors are much better. If you check the 3rd pic of my ME model collection you can see that EDI is so vibrant it looks like she was photoshopped there, that's the only one that was printed on photo paper from that lot.
Én például jobban szeretem a lézerest mert valahogy a tintasugaras nekem túl mattnak/fakónak tűnik. És bár néha nehéz, azért el lehet kerülni, hogy lepattogjon a festék, vagy ha nem akkor is el lehet tüntetni a nyomait. [link] ezt is pl lézeressel nyomattam és szerintem nem lett rossz.
