Looking to expand my 40mm Napoleonic Collection I have recently bought the Piano Wargames stl files for the Hessians in Spain and had them blown up and printed by Sabotag3d, great job really happy, pictures etc on the blog here:

Those look great. 3D printing is really a contender now.

£D is just incredible for detailing eg facial features, kit, firearms, all without the pitting and mould seams of metals.

But they are fragile, easily snapped and not easily reglued, whatever superadhesive you use.

Yet they make wonderful models that will not be handled.

Fragility, etc depends on the resin being used for the prints. I print figures of this scale in flexible resin for my grandchildren. The subjects are somewhat different ;-), being focused on fantasy American football-style games… But the details are just as fine. The big difference is that my 8 year old grandson can have a game of throwing the figures to and from his father :-0 – but no snapping or other incident, other than push my pulse rate up until it became clear there wasn't a problem.

Thanks guys, not really as robust as metal but they certainly have a lot of bend and give so hoping they will last.
