Curious to have these cartoony figures in with detailed ones.
Pretty sure I saw these earlier today on Thingiverse, on my first visit there.

These figures, aren't they?

They could man Pippin Fort near Trumpton.

They are definitely Earsling's one's, they work well with a few modifications scaled to 6mm

How wonderful, and love the Trumpton comment :)

But clearly the technology is moving on, even these would not have been possible a few years back. I believe 3D printing technology will be a game changer within our hobby. Imagine the above figures digitally sculpted by a commercial designer!

I think my 3D printed Royal Horse Artillery officer is an example of what can be done already – 3D printed painted resin in 40mm scale.

Yes, your 40mm is showing the future for 54 as well I think. I followed your links but the cost per figure was significant higher than you mentioned, which stopped me dead. I guess you got yours via a friendly source, compared to the public facing pricing. But I am confident the 54 market will get there at some point
