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
We will also be hosting a weekend of virtual content focused on CAV: Strike Operations!
As many of you already know, we had to cancel CAV-CON 2020 this year (and skip the rest of the shows we attend through the year). So rather than sit around and mope through that weekend, we have decided to live stream the whole weekend on Twitch and Discord.
We will also be sharing content on our FB, Twitter, and Instagram accounts!
We plan to spend the weekend playing CAV, talking, Playing CAV, painting, Playing CAV! Starting Sept 4th at 12 noon (CST) and going each day till we can't go any further!
We will have hourly prize giveaways (limit one per guest) featuring t-shirts, paints, minis, and anything else we choose to throw out there!
We hope to have a few guests dropping by to chat while James "Maddog" Meredith will be here to test his mettle vs CAVBoss as we throw a few dice using the new campaign system! Between now and showtime, we will be sharing our progress on getting our units ready to fight!
I'm sure it will be chaos, but it will be a lot of fun, so I hope to see you drop by! CB
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!
Brief word of introduction. I know next to nil about CAV. My current interest in it is solely from a painting perspective. With that in mind, please excuse any blunders I make.
So, I'm a painter looking for some cool stuff to paint. I see CAV's mechs. I think "I like mechs, those look cool, I think I'll grab some". Then my eyes flicker upwards towards where it says "10mm scale". I think you can see where this is going.
Long story short, how big are these? It looks like they come on 1" hexes, and $4.99-$6.99 is quite a lot to charge for a small mini (in my opinion, of course).
Many 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:
