28mm Inquisitor Game
« on: May 14, 2020, 12:27:28 AM »
Hi, new to the forums.

I've recently started an Inquisitor Game, playing with 28mm models.

Most of these will have been designed on Hero Forge, and printed on my 3d printer (So I can print one for myself and paint it  :) )

First up is the (PC) Tech Priest 'Lamegarius Ventalis'.

Looking good so far.

I don't know much about 3D printing myself (my closest experience is mostly CG renders, which I've done for several of my RP characters), but what printer do you have? It's a technology that does seem to be coming into the consumer market and which I might well eventually end up getting in on, so I'm trying to keep my finger slightly on that pulse.

For larger items (scenery, vehicles etc) I have the 'Anycubic I3 Mega S' itís a reliable FDM printer thatís one of the best value for money filament printers out there.

For miniatures I use the 'Spark Maker FHD' which is an SLA printer that uses UV light to cure a liquid resin into cumulative layers of the model.

You can use an FDM printer to print miniatures, but an SLA type printer will almost always give you better results.

My printers are on the cheaper end of the spectrum, so you don't have to dump thousands into the hobby (speaking to a group of people that play Citadel games  ::) )

I'm sure you already know this, but your models that you have created CG renders for, all you would need to do to print them would be to export a .stl file of the model into a 'slicer' program (This cuts the model into layers for the printer to print), and the model is ready to print.

3d printers are mimicking the same trend as ink printers, in the very near future, 'budget' 3d printers will be good enough (most are already) and cheap enough (getting there) that any household that wants one, will have one.
