The lectern

In past I had already tried to create a lectern, sober and generic, but I did not consider it suitable for the stone temple, so I remade it.

Here the comparison from the old one and the new

The 3D model

For almost every piece I used the mirror modifier, apart some part like the book, splittting it in 4 pieces.

At the base I put 2 cubes. The pedestal is also a cube, with some cylinder at the vertex as decorations.

The “desk” is composed by 2 pieces, both from cubes, the “desk” and its support. The latter is needed to don’t let empty spaces, that create problems during the 3D printing.

In the back I added 2 candlesticks, with their candles, all made with cylinders, with some spheres as decorations.
The flame is also a sphere, stretched using the proportional editing.

The book is made of cubes, both the cover and the pages. To create the swell of the pages I used some loop (ctrl+R).

And the work is finished.

The 3D printing

Since the model is really small, and I wanted all details, I set the height of the layer to 0.1mm, without using supports.
I didn’t use them because I already knew I did not need them, and to reduce the flaw caused by them. Anyway some smear remained.

a detail of the lectern

I tried to remove the smears, but I did not have the suited tools,and this is the result. From the photos it’s seems is a big problem, but actually they are not noticed.

For the filament I chose the grey one, because it’s a neutral color and it don’t create problems while painting.

The painting

For painting I used Citadel paint:

  • Dawnstone
  • Mechanicus standard grey
  • Abaddon black
  • Rhinox hide
  • Ceramite white
  • Yriel yellow
  • Evil sunz scarlet

with a bit of gold from Tamiya.

As usual I did not painted with some techniques, but I tried to add some detail with gold, and some “write” on the book pages.
For the flames I paint with a yellow paint, with the tip red.
