Jus those look fantastic, can't wait to see you bust some out at a game day.

Also thank you for triggering Murphy's Law and thus Cursed City going on preorder this week.

Dang, looking nice! I guess the brittleness is the only real negative on the "quality of the miniatures" front?

If only I lived in an actual house... :lol:

I live in an actual house and I can tell you I will never get an actual 3D printer until they are:
A - Non-toxic
B - Don't produce a mess
and
C - Are totally odourless.
None of the above bother me particularly, but I am not the only person living in my house. So nothing stronger than poly-cement and spray paints (outdoors, on the driveway) are allowed. :(

A - This I could actually see in the foreseeable future. Although I could also see them charging a premium for a 100% non toxic resin.

B- I don't see the process ever NOT producing a mess. Unless we somehow transition to a non liquid form of material.

C- I believe there already are some odourless resins on the market already! I haven't tried them though


After about a week with it. I have to say, 3D printing is really fun. A lot more fun than ordering stuff from Europe, paying for shipping and waiting for delivery. It's like having a miniatures factory in your own house!

Those minis do look really cool. It seems like half the wargaming news I see these days is relating to 3D printing. Having seen the results from your printer, I can see why it's so popular.
