Some lucky members of the DAZ Community have been receiving printed 3D figurines of Victoria 6 in the mail. If you weren’t chosen (I wasn’t either, and I suspect your ‘luck’ increases the more you spend, which is fair enough) then you still have the option to buy a printed figurine. These will come ready-made, printed using full-colour sandstone, and attached to a base for stability. Right now there are 3 human figures to choose from, and these are priced at $34.95 each. Your choices are Lee 6, Mei Lin 6 and Keiko 6. These Eastern characters are all in action poses. Or for $59.95 you can pick up the DAZ Dragon 3, who I think looks especially good as a 3D printed figure. The textured, almost sparkle effect finish really suits the dragon.
There are no discounts on these products, so members and non-members will all currently pay full price. I doubt that we will see these items go on sale either, since the production costs will need to be met regardless. Out of interest, I added the Dragon to my shopping cart. I am in the UK and the shipping method was as follows: United States Postal Service First-Class Package International Service $14.03.
This definitely makes the worldwide giveaway to selected customers a generous offer, so congratulations if you were one of the recipients. While I’d have loved to have been able to show off a figurine on this site, I wouldn’t want someone who spent more than me last year to go without. But if you received one, I’d love to see a photo of it.
Besides the pre-printed products, there are 8 new releases today plus a new weekly freebie.
RawArt’s the talent behind DokkAlfar for Genesis 2, a Dark Elf bundle for G2F and G2M which can also just be bought for the gender of your choice. These dark elves have chiselled features, dark skin and ruby red eyes. The male has optional face paint and tattoo, while the female has a make-up option.
Today too we can go downtown with The AntFarm, thanks to the new Unrealty Downtown set with its gritty, urban feel. It includes trash cans and other props for extra value. Or go hang out at E-Arkham’s Highway Culverts, with its drains and pipes. This combination of manmade and natural props has great texture detail and fun sealed tunnel options. If on the other hand you want to add some destruction to existing environments, you might want to invest in Dreamlight’s Master of Destruction, a video tutorial series that’s full of tricks for high-impact renders.
Have you met Lucciano for G2M? He’s a snappy dresser, frequently seen in bad company with his machine gun prop in hand. That is, when he’s not cooking up trouble in a speakeasy. This early 20th century outfit from Yura is perfect for gangsters and other men about town. It has 3 complete texture options and includes 12 separate pieces. JoeQuick is also in bad guy mode with ExtraOrdinary Men for G2M Vol 2, who will help you create a band of thugs or a whole variety of decent citizens. I have the Genesis version and can vouch for these being great morph sets which will add a lot of versatility to your free G2M and his characters.

Still the toon enviornments and vehicles, but I have to say there’s some superb products here if you can find a use for them — and none of them so ‘toony’ that they wouldn’t work for more realistic renders.
