A new Kickstarter from Durgin Paint Forge coming late September / early October.
Wasn't a backer of the previous ones, but I don't think there's been any issues.
They've been working away at this one for a while, so most of the minis have already been previewed on their blog.
Now live:- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/durginpaintforge/the-elves-of-inneath-32mm-fantasy-miniatures?ref=user_menu
Here is a trio of Wizkids elves painted up for tabletop. It was very annoying to get to the bowman's face - so its not really painted in detail. I have mixed feeling about wizkids humanoids.... I feel a bit grumpy about how these didn't turn out, but its' my fault... I do like the yellow velveteen effect I got on the one cloak...

Figured I'd put together one big thread of my recently finished 3D prints. Everything was printed on an Elegoo Mars.
Titan Behemoth from Duncan Shadow Louca:
Cyclops Behemoth, also from Duncan Shadow Louca:
A scale shot of those two, with Sir Forscale and a not-Johann the Running Man as my plastic one is broken:
Which leads into:
"You don't STINK like a peasant." "You don't DRESS like a peasant." "And you're definitely not ON FIRE like a peasant."
Fleeing Peasants off Thingiverse:
"So yeah, the treasure chest gets up and decks you."
Brawler Mimics off Thingiverse:
Vapour Snakes off Thingiverse:
Spell Effects from Vae Victis:
Cook, also from Vae Victis:
Angry Barmaid, from Titan Forge
Urd, from The Lost Dragons
So, first off, sorry if this is in the wrong category. Wasn’t sure which one to put it in, so.... Here it is.
As I’ve been painting for a while, the thought of “hey, maybe I should print my own minis” popped into my head. I pursued this thought a while, and then determined that yeah, I should probably go ask the professionals. So, here I am, rapid-firing questions like a nitwit.
First of all, what are some of the pros and cons? It would seem that it’d be cheaper in the long haul, but don’t you have to buy the 3D model as well? (But MF, you could finally make those minis you’ve made in your spare time on Hero Forge.......)... What are some of y’all’s pros and cons?
Second off, what printer? From my research, it seems that resin provides the most detail, but is more expensive, so I’d like to avoid it if at all possible. I’ve heard that the Creality Ender 3 seems to be best for the rookie on a budget (which I am in the largest sense of the word), but is it really?
Lastly, is it actually worth it in the end? In both the regards of pleasure with the final product and economically?
All thoughts and advice is needed and appreciated! Thanks, all!

I figured I'd do one mega-gallery of the first of my resin 3D printed miniatures. All are done on an Elegoo Mars.
Oni Kyojin from Artisan Guild. My first printed, as they were pre-supported.
Rangers of Shadow Deep: Incinerator left me with a hankering for an old-school Ogre. This guy is not really a Heroquest Ogre but a 3D print from a scan of one.
Demihuman Zombies from DuncanShadow:
Kobolds from DuncanShadow:
Warforged from Fabio Schizzo:
Orcs from Artisan Guild:
An assorted collection from The Lost Dragons Kickstarter.
A Dragonborn Paladin and High Elf Druid representing my sister in law and her husband's characters for our Storm King's Thunder campaign from said assortment:
