No one online is doing a 15mm 3d printed samurai army yet correct?

If they are I am in like Flynn – but I havent seen any.

With the typical brittleness of resin, wouldn't katanas, daisho scabards, gumis and yaris be a nightmare to keep "alive" at 15mm scale?

You can use flexible resins. There was a youtube I watched just the other day demonstrating minis printed with a mix a flexible resin and normal resin.

I sure would be interested in 15mm or even 28mm samurai miniatures I could 3d print.

Look at the page for the Bluewillow Hollow Kickstarter from Zombiesmith. Josh put up a video from the people who make the resin he's using for those minis. The resin is *extremely* flexible and exactly perfect for something like a katana or naginata. In fact, the Jaarl have some weapons like that. The brittleness of resin is no longer an issue if you do things right.

Thanks to both of you Nick and Andrew. I'm better educated on the topic now. LOL :-)

Project Wargaming has 3D samurai files.


Meant for 6mm prints so they may not have the detail of 15mm when scaled up.
