Beautiful work! Now, get them into battle, ASAP! And report back on how well this new breed of tabletop warriors present themselves in battle… Cheers!

Holy guacamole! That is a huge horde of ratmen! And, they look pretty good!

I'm starting to wonder if it is time for me to get into the 3d printing thing.

I'm confused…an army completed?? never heard of such a thing!
Nice job!

the thing about 3d printing an army, you can easily and cheaply expand it to any size you want, nice job painting, I print my miniatures in 15mm, but you can scale miniatures to any size you want. I am assuming you printed those for Warmaster? 10mm, but if you do your own printing you can just as well play warmaster or any other game in any scale you want, the the cost stays almost the same, you could also print 2 versions of the army say one in 10mm and one in 28mm or whatever, if you have time to paint, but the cost will be negletable to have the two sets of the same army. You can also print a army for a friend or family member, for quite cheaply also. Im assuming you didnt use much more than one bottle of resin to print that whole thing.

as for the resin to use, I print my 15mm miniatures (mostly forest dragon) using Siraya fast abs like and if you need to buy a bottle of Siraya Tenacious, and add about 10% tenacious to the mix, and it will solve your brittle problems. Just the Siraya fast may be good enough. Havent printed or painted for a while, need to get busy again

Thanks for the kind words and advice- have got some ABS-like resin with Black friday discount so look to do some new projects very soon.
