From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
It had to happen sometime. I have been keeping a keen eye on developments in the world of 3D printing for many years now. I’m not an early adopter by nature, so for me the trigger point has always been when I can effectively ‘press play’ on a printer, and get a miniatures of comparable quality to one I could buy out the other end, with minimal fuss.
I think we’re almost there.
The Kingdom of Mercia Kickstarter project grabbed my attention when I came across it at the week-end. The miniatures look great especially the knights and characters.
Fans of Warhammer (or Warhammer: Total War) will recognise the Bretonnian look and feel of this range immediately.
From the project description, a lot of work has gone into making these files ‘printer ready’ with versions with supports built in being made available as part of the project. I could buy something like an Elegoo Mars and use this project to kick off a new wing to my hobby. On the other hand there’s no harm in waiting until I have painted all of my current miniatures, and then pick up the 3D printing side of things. There’s only a few days left on the Kingdoms of Mercia project and I’m still on the fence, but I’m definitely starting to slide off it.
