I have just purchased and downloaded a large collection of 2mm models and buildings from Forward march studios I have not had chance to print any as yet as I am waiting for my new resin printer to arrive but $15 USD for a large collection of printable files is great value in my book.

whilst as can be expected in such a small scale the human models have little to no detail the buildings look great and could be scaled up for 6mm with very little effort

https://forwardmarchstudios.com

the current models include Models Currently Included in the Forward March Studios Library as of 05/28/2018
The Infantry
Each infantry model is available in 2, 3 and 4 rank variants and two sprue configurations, one with 10 models, and one with 14 models.
20mm Infantry Strips, no flags
20mm Infantry Strips, one flag
20mm Infantry Strips, two flags
30mm Infantry Strips, no flags
30mm Infantry Strips, one flag
30mm Infantry Strips, two flags
40mm Infantry Strips, no flags
40mm Infantry Strips, one flag
40mm Infantry Strips, two flags
60mm Infantry Strips, no flags
60mm Infantry Strips, one flag
60mm Infantry Strips, two flags

There is also a special FDM infantry model without bayonets, which is available currently only in 40mm strips, with three ranks. The lack of bayonets means that this can be easily printed on a low-end FDM printer.

The Cavalry
The cavalry are currently available only in 2 ranks but a three rank variant is planned.
52 Horse Squadrons on a 40mm Frontage
112 Horse Squadrons on an 80mm Frontage (Two company groups)
104 Horse Squadrons on an 80mm Frontage (Four company groups, bigger gap between ranks, possibly easier to paint)

The Artillery and Train
Artillery Come in Both Bicorne and Shako/Kepi Versions.
4 gun batteries, 40 guns total
6 gun batteries, 60 guns total
8 gun batteries, 80 guns total
Limbers and six horse team, Shako, Kepi, 18 limbers per model
Caissons and six horse team, Shako, Kepi, 18 caissons per model

The Generals
All generals' bases come in both bicornes or shako/kepi versions. Titles are only suggestions, any sized base is appropriate for any level of command at the customer's preference:
15mm Round "Regimental commanders"
20mm Round "Brigade Commanders"

40mm Round "Corps Commanders" (coming soon!)
50mm Round "Army General" (coming soon!"

I think they turn out pretty cool. And at this scale it's all about the impression and the colours, so print lines from fdm printers will be less of an issue than they are on larger figures-- even if they do mean you can't really use all over washes as they bring out the lines too much.

Where you planning on printing them on your own printer, using shapeways or finding a local printer on 3dhubs?

I have a DLP resin printer on order that should be with me next month. in comparison with a FDM printer the resolution is so much finer most people on FDM print with around a 0.2mm layer height this is the coarsest layer my DLP will print and it is more than capable running at 0.02mm layers this is a print that someone has posted on the facebook group for the printer link

That should be awesome. I have a reasonable FDM printer but I had to print all sorts of upgrade parts and really tune it just to get it to do 0.05.
