HeroForge Custom mini KS


Recommended Posts

I've received my KS rewards.  mini finish quality is a solid "meh".  The grainy texture makes the mini look like it got dusted with talc.  It's ok at arms length, but not something I'd be proud of putting on the table.  I do wonder if acetone or alcohol could improve the surface texture.


Try with a coat of gloss varnish.

Just a little bit of near necromancy, I did try a gloss vanish coat, but the grainy text remains.  maybe exposure to solvent fumes would help smooth it out.  i'm not sure, but also not equipped to try.

Sad to hear people's experiences were so negative. I've only had three HF minis printed, but I was satisfied with their quality each and every time. I have a huge selection of personally designed minis, and I considered backing for the STLs so that I could go third party and get them for a bit less, but I opted not to. C'est la vie.

Their monochrome models look infinitely better than their collored models.

 

Their original monochrome models were just as bad, but they got better.

 

VERY happy with the Impact print of the HF STLs.

 

So glad I warned Grump off.

It should be said, all of mine were printed at least a year prior to this KS, if not further back, so they were the standard grey. I should do a show-off thread for them...

I got Megan some figures when Heroforge was brand new... the quality was not good - and the minis were incredibly fragile - we are talking about breaking when drybrushed levels of fragility. More like tiny particles glued together than a solid model.

 

A later model was much, much better - grey plastic, better detail, and could handle a bit of abuse.

 

That said - the ones we got from Impact, using the STLs we pledged for on the KS, are even better than the Heroforge one from last year. (And two were of the same model I designed for Megan on the early Heroforge. ::): )

 

The color ones have a rough texture, and the colors are... weird.

 

But they are nowhere near as fragile as those early Heroforge models, and the detail is good, even if the texture is... kind of rough.

 

The Auld Grump - We know two people that bought them.

@PaganMegan @TheAuldGrump   Thank you so much for the kind words on my 3-D Printing service.   Very glad you are happy.  I just found this thread tonight.   I keep trying new equipment and new resins to make sure I get the best quality 3-D prints that I can for people that have the most details while being durable (not brittle) so you can game with them.

 

If anyone tries our service and has an issue ... I promise to do my best to make it right.   Really made me smile to see the thumbs up for the work!

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
       
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.

      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.
