My first finished 6mm ACW units printed with files TurnerMiniatures. These were individualized from from the Blender files from MyMiniFactory, so that heads and hats as well as rifle-muskets and hands and legs were varied, for that ragged look, which I thinks makes them more natural looking. There are 8 different poses in each unit. To me the ability to make 6mm units with pose variations is one of the unique aspects of this range.

Really superb figures!

These are really excellent! As an old guy, I have shied away from printers. But this looks like the future to me.

…….and in beautiful, narrow lines too.

I think your excellent painting has taken advantage of the modeled detailing (they could be greatest minis underneath, but if dull or darkly painted, would have looked "flat")…..yours don't!

Amazing painting on the little guys.

Resin printer?

Very nicely detailed – exception minis and brushwork notably for 6mm – thanks for sharing

If they ever figure out printing in color, I will be out of a hobby and job……

It's only a matter of time.

Thank you for the kind comments. I got my Resin printer a year ago – a cheap one for 250 euro. With no prior knowledge of 3D or printing. It is really fantastic what you can do. I love the TurnerMiniatures files, especially as they allow you customization. Here are some US infantry in progress. Two diffenret types. One with knapsack and one without to show off equipment and badges. The ones with knapsack has just been washed, so that the details fresh from the print is shown. As you can see on the painted infantry I have individualized head and kepi positions as well as the rifles.

Very nice indeed.

I hope that your eyesight is ok as your painting is fantastic.

A super idea to mix the poses, hats etc as the resultant look is excellent.

To produce this quality in this scale is an exceptional feat in my opinion.

Those fences would be magnificent if you put the cross bars in.

Happy New Year.

Best wishes,
