High on my list is wheels. Wheels of all sorts. Wagon wheels of various styles on up to various truck or tractor wheels. I can scratch build box shapes easy enough to make carts/wagons and vehicles but find wheels to be a pain.

I'll note that solid wooden wheels are pretty easy to scratchbuild, either from stripwood or by adding texture to a simple sort of disk. Spoked wheels are trickier, of course.

Maybe not the easiest to do, or even useful for what you are doing, but it does make nice wheels

I haven't had much luck with wheels at these scales on my printer.  The resolution just isn't fine enough, especially when I have bed adhesion problem

Designing them in Fusion 360 is pretty easy though.  I might have to see if I can figure out a way to combine a 3d printed outer piece with the method @ketil linked to in that video.

      I found this model somewhere on the internet, alone and uncredited, so I have no idea who made it or what it is or anything. People have suggested that it's a Kirby, whatever that is, with a human face pasted on.

      I like it, and I'll print about a dozen of them, and make up some stats to use them in my D&D campaign in some way. I'm leaning towards some kind of waddling tar-baby critter, but we shall see.

      The original model was only about 1.5mm tall, so I've rescaled it by 1500% to roughly 20mm.

      Impact Miniatures ran a Kickstarter earlier in the year and this Mocking Beast aka Mimic was one of the offerings.  My wife enjoys playing D&D Online with me (she's good at the puzzles and spotting treasure) and finds the mimics amusing, so I painted this for her birthday.

      Hard to tell it was 3d printed, other than very fine lines on long oblique items like the sides of the tongue.  All in all it was a blast to paint.  Based it on a Litko 3mm plywood 25mm round and painted the stonework on.

      I made these primitive runestones in Blender and printed them on my little 3d printer. I thought the first one was a bit boring, so I added a bunch of skulls around the base of the second for that cannibal-headhunter vibe.

      They're on Thingiverse at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3010064

      The miniature is from Reaper, the figure I use to represent my oldest (surviving) D&D character from back in 1981, Smirnoff the Huge and Ugly. There was one earlier character from my very first roleplaying session, but I don't even remember his name — he was blown to smithereens in that same session by being too close to an overly-curious halfling thief.

      An interesting and somewhat different take on elves.

      The project I've been working on for the past two weeks: Ariel and Orion, queen and King of the wood elves from Warhammer fantasy setting. 
      Their background is quite simple actually, clearly inspired on Titania & Oberon of the fey people. Ariel is a mage, Oberon is the hunter. 
      I decided to paint them with opposite schemes: Ariel with an autumn palette (the flow of her dress made me regret it many times: it could have looked great in blue) and Orion with an spring one. Both are classic characters from Warhammer. Both metal models. Ariel's is really old: probably around 4th-5th edition; there was also an Orion model back then, but mine is the rework from 8th edition. While Ariel's original model shows its era aesthetics but it's still appealing, I thought Orion's original model was outdated and not that good. While painting them, Orion took a lot more time (a lot more), since it has a lot more detail.
