Hi everyone, I'm almost running out of prep/primed minis so, I'm preparing some more. I recently painted a Dark Dwarf Striker and like the model so much I decided to paint the other models. Also, I wanted to convert an enlarged model to make it look more like the Striker instead of the Smiter. I made a 3D model of the hammer head and 3D printed it. Here are some pictures of my advancement so far.

I have condition markers, and other markers numbered 1-20 for monsters/enemies, etc. I want to do these on my Mars, but I don't know if they should be printed flat, or at the "suggested" 30 degree incline. If they should be done inclined, how light or heavy, should I do supports?
Any help or suggestions are appreciated.
Edit: Tried printing the marker flat on the build plate - nothing was printed. So, now trying parallel to the bed, but with supports

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!
