Anatomy of a Good Miniature

Good miniatures have different features than 3D models for films or videogames.
The same way ancient sculptures do, they has special proportions adapted to gamer’s height and point of view -much larger and higher than mini’s one!

1. Ginormous weapons

Swords, shields, cloacks, axes, gun's barrels... those are a miniature's weakiest parts, and that's why they bust been modelled thicker. Although you see them too big on screen, is the thickness they need to be safely 3d printed and you can play with them without getting broken.

2. Special proportions

Head, hands and feet are about 20% or 40% bigger than usual -bigger as we approach to 'heroic scale', as ones used by Warhammer. This allow figures hang weapons wich are almost bigger than them without getting broken and looking as a weapon instead a big, rounded sausage. Furthermore, this allow you to enjoy details and paint them easily.

4. Thickness 100% adapted to 3D printing

One of the most common mistakes that makes modellers from other specialities is modelling superb figures with ultra-realistic wrinkles... wich you couldn't see in your miniature when it was 3D printed.

We know when your chain is too week and will broke and how many scales needs at maximun your armor so you can easily paint it. Let yourself be advised!

  • Thin joints and weapons = they split easily.
  • Caves and unsealed holes = printing troubles.
