    Are their heads and hands too small, or have I just spent too long looking at GW figures? O__o

    • Hehe, I didn’t pay that much attention as I mostly read what this was about 🙂 The renders look pretty nice – the fingers on “Thanatos” seem a tad short, but acceptably so.
      I think perhaps the style has somewhat smaller heads, but more to the point – these testprints are from Shapeways and if nothing has changed since last I checked they have a cleanup method that takes away some of the stepping by taking off some of the material… I can’t help but imagine it’s a milder form of industrial potato pealers 😀

      You’re right. GW and other miniature manufacturers exaggerate some features in their sculpts like heads and arms. Our approach was to make them realistic proportions. I’m not sure if that is the right way to go in the future as the way miniatures are traditionally presented does make them look more heroic and even standout a bit more.

      But this is why I love 3D printing as the manufacturing method. We can easily tweak the models to make them feel better as miniatures without having to recreate molds etc. I love the iterative nature of it. I feel that we can achieve pretty nice results by gradually improving the posing and other aspects of the model based on the feedback 🙂
