28mm 3d printed mini by Crippled God Foundry.

The Crocodile figures are "heroic 28mm" and come with a square slotta-base. Did you have to explain this to the Etsy seller, so you got the right height and the square base?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I have had little to do with Etsy and printing figures.

Most purveyors of 3D printed mini's ask you to specify the end size desired, due to scale creep. I recently purchased several, and that was a condition required in the order form -- specify the size desired: 20mm 25mm, 28mm , etc.

I received my resin printed mini's and they are surprisingly good, IMO. Also, be sure to keep an eye on the resolution offered… If it is not fine enough, you will get layer markings, even in resin 3D printed mini's, which are obvious, and which will show up in painting, especially if washes are applied.

I received some sample figures along with what I ordered, free of charge (!), which had layer marks visible. Not complaining, just sharing my experiences with a different seller. Cheers!

Basically what Sgt Slag said. On the Etsy item there's usually a dropdown menu to choose the scale you want. Most of the 3d prints I've gotten from Etsy people come with bases seperate (usually they're all round). I simply based her onto a 20mm square I had.

Not a stupid question at all.

Most of the time on resin printed miniatures, if there are resin lines, it is because the model isnt supported correctly or there is some other issue going on with the resin printer ( like the print is sticking to the FEP). Properly printed Resin miniatures should not have readily visible layer lines and they should not show up when painted. My printer isnt a 4k printer, but I still print some miniatures down to 15mm ( actually 18mm which many of the fantasy metal miniatures are). Some miniatures just dont print well when reduced and have to thin of parts, but should still have good detail.

Ive seen a youtuber who printed miniatures designed for 28m in several different scales, all the way down to 6mm and they still looked great, not all files will do that though.

If the models you payed for have lines in them, ask the vendor to reprint them for you.

I think the Giants I sent you were all good, no resin lines, maybe a few support marks :)
