I'm looking at doing Test of Honour the Japanese 28mm skirmish games and was curious if anyone knew of decent quality Japanese miniatures that would be appropriate to print at 28mm? I have both a resin and filament printer (Anycubic Photon and a Prusa MK3S).

Not Miniatures but nice scenery. I know you can buy their printed items with other printer sites'; so you should be able to buy their files to print. That is if you are interested.

Thanks! I had seen these files and they look good. Curious if anyone knows any sites with STLs for some miniatures too?

I can't help you, but I know it is much more difficult to sculpt and render a good looking human form. That is why there are few good war gaming miniatures in stl files right now.

Samurai are even worse to render due to the complexity and surface textures of their clothing and armour. You are still better off buying from the regular manufacturers, IMO.

hero forge lets you customize your own .stls at $8 USD each (bit pricey) and they have some Japanese options.
