Another Forest Dragon 10/15mm Fantasy army. This time it's the High Elves and they are again modeled after the original WFB 6th edition GW models.

Nice sculpts, but I find figures smaller than 25mm, too difficult to recognize at arm's length. Very nice sculpts, though. Cheers!

Sgt Stag that is the plus and the minus to 10mm.

Sgt Slag, Here is the deal, if you own a 3d printer, you can print them in what ever scale you want them. I mostly wargame in 15mm, which is big enought to see, especially if well painted, and I have some of these printed in 15, but I have also printed some of the Forest dragon goblins in 28mm scale, which for goblins make them about 20mm tall to the eyes ( depending on how tall you want your goblins) but you could print these in anything from 6mm to 54mm or anything inbetween,( although the Forest dragon minis would be lacking a little detail at 54mm but there are tons of miniatures availble that you can 3d print with any level of detail you want.

The last 3 or 4 months Ive been to busy to do anything with minis, but I am soon to embark on a 15mm Amazon army, which will mostly be 3d printed. ( the same could be done in any scale). most of the minis will becoming from various patreons, MyMiniFactory, and even Heroforge designs, which I intend to scale to 15mm( actually 18mm as my demonworld minis are 18mm so that is what I base my minis on.

If I was going to start all over with only 3d printed miniatures, I would likely go for 3d printing everything in 25mm/1:72 as its probably the best compromise between, detail, paintability, yet not taking to much table space for larger battles. 28mm (now 32mm) is just getting a little to big, both for wargaming, and RPGing, although, while if you only owned a small handfull of figures (PC's) and no monsters to deal with, the 32-35mm is fine, or if your only painting for display, but for gaming 25mm/1:72 or 15mm is better, but for really massive games 10mm/6mm has its place. but for me, im in the 15mm/18mm camp.

The technique I use for 10mm figures (except for special characters) is to focus on painting the unit, instead of the figures for what it looks like at gaming distance.

I, too, paint for arm's length: I view my armies at arm's length 98% of the time, so I paint for the 98%, ignoring the 2% times I look at them closer to my eye. This allows for very fast speed painting. Just put the finishing touches on a 40-figure unit of Gnolls, which will be bloodied this Saturday. They look good enough to game with! Introducing some new people to fantasy wargaming, this Saturday. Should be a lot of fun. Cheers!
