Hello everyone,

I recently bought the blender files from Turner Miniatures Europe Asunder infantry pack. These allow you to customize the miniatures Henry Turner created. They can be printed on a 3d printer and can be changed from 6mm-25mm. After about an hour of work trying to figure out how to get everything to work, I created a Russian Grenadier on sentry duty in a greatcoat and a Jager NCO in greatcoat. Sadly, I do not have a 3d printer, but I can see the worth of these files for creating unique armies.

Seem little out of proportion but lots of details
Get a printer and away you go

I agree. They look odd. I don't know if actually printing them corrects those visual distortions or not.

painted Prussian figures by James Tozer from the 6mm SYW range. I have Adlers, and many complain their heads are too big, but I think they look great painted. I don't like Baccus miniatures. To each their own. These seem to be a good mix between the style of Adlers and Baccus.

I don't think being magnified so much does them any favours, although I suspect that the largest you would get away with printing and them fitting in is Warlord's Epic range. Certainly in 6-10mm I think they'd look fine en masse and similar to some of the old Risk figures.

La Belle Ruffian,

The pictures above are from the Blender Files where I was able to create my figure and look huge, but I agree that they would love fine between 6-10mm. I already have some Adler Russian Jagers so it would be interesting to see if they match in the same unit or at least can be used together in different units.

What is Warlord's Epic scale 10-12mm?

La Belle Ruffian26 Nov 2022 10:52 a.m. PST

MarbotsChasseurs, I think the photo makes your point quite well. Those figures are very well done indeed, but if they were 150mm tall (as your first pictures are on my screen), then of course the proportions would look off. It's an issue with a lot of 28mm figures compared to 20mm plastics, which generally look proportionally more true to life.

I know what you mean about Bacchus, I think it's to do with what catches the eye when viewing from an elevated position.

The Warlord Epic figures are apparently true 15mm/modern 12mm. Some have said their ACW mix well with Kallistra's 12mm and the British Napoleonic line do seem to have a similar look. I've seen a lot of Europe Asunder resellers on EBay UK. I'm sure you could approach some of them on the site local to you with your files and come to an arrangement.

Le Belle Ruiffian,

I will need to use one of those sellers to buy some sample figures in 6-12mm sizes to see which looks best. I have found a few sellers, but shipping is almost $30 USD for miniatures that cost less than $10. USD

La Belle Ruffian26 Nov 2022 12:43 p.m. PST

Hopefully you can get some from ebay.com instead – there must be people your way. I don't know the licensing arrangements, but if it were possible for them to sell your figures perhaps you could get a good deal? Good luck with the project anyway.

MarbotsChasseurs27 Nov 2022 6:35 a.m. PST

I was able to find a seller on Etsy who is sending some samples. I believe they are from all the nations. I will paint them up as soon as I can and try my best to take some good pics.

La Belle Ruffian27 Nov 2022 9:58 a.m. PST

Good luck – I did notice some pictures in the Napoleonic Miniatures Wargaming Facebook Group, where another company posted their initial 6mm figure printing. They look good too. link is their own page.

Yes, good luck and post pics, 6mm isn't like your going to see them but at 3 feet away and be seeing the whites of their eyes.

I received samples of the Russian Jagers, Grenadiers, and an Officer. Just a warning, these are extreme close-ups, some are taken with the flash, and some are not. I think the skirmish figures look great, and the proportions look pretty close to Adlers. The grenadiers seem slightly less balanced, with the skirmishers being almost half a head taller. It seems that making the neck and collar higher on the Russian grenadiers would make them closer to the same height. I have the blender files, so I can make that change. Amazingly, Mr. Turner's sculptures can be printed even with buttons on the cuffs, but I am not sure if this is necessary at 6mm. I am debating whether they should be slightly larger at 8mm or 10mm to fit better with my Adlers.

The cavalry seems to be two different models. I have read on the forums that Mr. Turner has given his new models longer legs, and the Russian officer's horse is the current model length for the horse, which looks more realistic. For those who say the heads are too big, which seems the biggest complaint for Adler 6mm, at a 3-foot distance, the larger heads make it much easier to recognize the type of unit on the table.

Glad that you have discovered these. I have been a fan a long time and have not looked back. The ability to customize the individual figures as unique to these ranges, and adds a whole new dimension to the hobby. I printed a lot of different versions to find the scales Henry recommends – they are slightly different depending on whether you wan to go with Adler or Bacus compatible miniatures. I am now making many small variations in poses, so that the units looks more alive.

I must say that anybody really into small scale gaming should consider getting a resin printer – it is really fun.
