One of the problems I have had is that the replicator 2 will just manage a 12mm figure with supports 1 at a time. With 3 at a time it fails and even 2 is not so good on layer by layer printing. I guess at this size it cools to quickly.

However with a bit of perseverance and a bit of hassle I have manged to get Simplify 3D to print multiple figure but one at a time. So I can print 6 figure in one go, saves loads of heating and cooling and is I think a bit faster than an individual print.

Well worth persuing it if your slicer allows.

You are supposed to paint them and play with them! ;-). If they are all your own creations you are creating more than playing. ;-).

Those look splendid! The future is now.

What other options are there for the color? Olive? Black? That blue seems like it'd be something to deal with.

I use the blue because you can see the detail when taking pictures. But just buy some 99 cent flat black from Walmart and spray them then paint to your preference. Krylon makes some good colors that adhere to plastic as well.

Heres some models that were blue that I just spray painted hunter green.
