Oh, I have that one already ^^. From the first KS.

...I think. A very similar one, at least.

I think it's the same one. Vanguard Miniatures have started to sell the STLs from Troublemaker Games. Expect more such items to appear in the store soon.

That's a good thing, if you ask me. But numbers will tell.

Let’s see! I am chatting with John to also use Vanguard Miniatures to sell the STLs of my Bits Blitz line. Vanguard has a bigger reach than my Cults3d shop and the possibility of also selling my stuff through their upcoming Print on Demand service (once the print farm is up and running) seems interesting to me!

Those look great!

Malika - can I ask, do you know if there are any plans to actually sell prints of those STLs, as well as the files themselves?

You would have one customer right here!

Lots of nice terrain in STL!

Are there any plans to offer the miniatures as STLs? I would trip over my own feet in the rush to buy a few of the 6mm lines as STL files.

The original plan was that Vanguard would start selling prints, but the whole 'setting up a print farm' has been delayed a bit.

Not sure, John wasn't too keen on the STLs being sold, especially for 'bread and butter' items such as infantry and vehicles. But for bigger stuff it might be an option.

Can't say I don't understand, really, although for me, personally, it's a shame. Also, working with metals is a PITA.

Maybe they could try and move production into 3d printed resins when they manage to build the print farm: even using good, proper (meaning expensive) resin with good properties for minis (probably a bit bendy, even, to avoid brittleness), material costs for infantry and regular vehicles should be low (moreso if you hollow out properly the vehicles), and with a couple of big format printers you can print an unholy amount at a time.

That's an absolute shame, as I have no interest in mail ordering the physical minis, what with the state of shipping nowadays.

I love those ships, but don't have access to a 3d printer. Wish they would produce them too, I'd bite their hands off!

Any UK people used a 3d printing service that would cope well with these new Eldar models that they would recommend?

I love Italianmoose’s designs. I printed a bunch of them from Thingiverse, and even with an FDM printer they turned out well.

I’m tempted to buy a file or two and then ask around some of the usual places for someone to print them for me in resin.

Sometimes these minis do seem to come along as printed versions you can buy (perhaps Malika can advise) but in the meantime you could try these guys who have a list of printing services. I have only used one so far (Mighty Minis) for some buildings, which came out pretty nicely, but haven't tried any of the others yet https://grimdarkterrain.com/

Also, have got a whole guide here around getting miniatures for Epic (amongst other stuff) if that is any use to you https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/751316.page
