Next is something a little new for me. For the first time, I’m selling files for 3D printing. I’ve taken the Star God sculpt and made a bust version. I had to make a few small changes so that he will print without supports on an FDM printer. There are a couple of version of both his… face? and the plinth on which he sits.
I may offer this guy in resin in the future, if there is demand.
Below are some of my test prints of him, at 75% scale. Filaments used are Polyalchemy Elixir Silver, Fillamentum Vertigo Starlight, and Fillamentum Vertigo Galaxy. Printed on my Original Prusa i3 MK3 using the Pretty PLA profile (found here). 0.2mm layers, 3 perimeters, 10% gyroid infill.
Last of all, I made a remix of the 3D Alien Worlds rice bundles to make a terrain piece on a 50mm base, for use in Bushido, with the Rice Bail Barricade special card, upcoming in Risen Sun. This is 3D printed on-demand in light grey PLA.
A selection of designs are now available as squad packs: packs of 4 regular pads and one of the same design with a veteran rim. If, like me, you like to have the veteran pads on your sergeants, these should be a great way to start customising a combat squad. When the time comes to add reinforcements, simply grab the corresponding design.
For now, these are available in 22 designs of standard pads. There’s no real sense in doing the same with large pads just yet – arc have no veteran style, grav styles aren’t usually mixed in a unit, and the art-scale range is too small right now.
I will roll out some more existing standard pad designs where the veteran pad will have to be picked at random (Cogs, Spiked Rows, etc.) soon, and all future designs should be available in this format in addition to regular and veteran sets.
A couple of designs have been renamed to prepare for a future release. Hopefully not too vexing. If anyone can figure out the theme of that future release, there will be a reward.
Wow, no updates since ROBIN! Quite a few new releases to go over, many of which have been available on the site for a while, and some others which debuted at Salute.
First up, some mushrooms for basing your miniatures. These were intended for release alongside GW’s new goblins, but I had some printer problems and then had to prioritise printing a whole bunch of Bushido miniatures. These are proving a little tricky to cast, so you may find the odd bubble or that your sprue doesn’t exactly match the picture. I’m working on improving this but, in the meantime, I’ll do my best to ensure a quality product arrives through your letterbox.
Next up, the chequered disc grav pad gets a non-veteran version, for your flying friends, the wreath design makes it on to the grav pads, but on the right shoulder, and a new style appears featuring the ever-popular chequered disc design.
More ornate-rimmed pads have dropped: wreath, and a triumvirate of skull halo designs. This has led to some renaming of existing designs, to make referring to each of them somewhat easier. Expect to see these designs duplicated in the standard pads, too.
These have been up on the store for a while, but check out the print-on-demand Japanese scenery from 3D Alien Worlds! More to come soon, including their canal walls and farm set. Great for Test of Honour, Kensei, Torii, Ronin, and, of course, Bushido.
Finally, the original plastic magnetic movement trays have been updated to a newer design which improves the adhesion of the ferrous discs. It is actually about as simple as this product can get now. So often a design starts out over-complicated and gets distilled down to its simplest form. I still have a bunch of the old ones which I will offer at a discount at shows or when contacted. These have been joined by MDF versions of the 5x25mm trays. Eventually, the 5x32mm and 5x40mm will show up in MDF too.
OK, OK, one more thing; a little collaboration. Jacek over at Alien Lab Miniatures has done some amazing work using some of MCM’s art-scale pads as a base. He also produces wonderful bases and miniature sculpts. Check it all out at alienlab.store. If you have ideas of things I can do with his stuff, let me know!
A small collection of new releases, at long last. Standard pads see the addition of a unicorn design in regular and veteran rims, plus a chains rim, and a wreath design only with a veteran rim. All of these are available individually, too. Just look for the individual pads product.
A new large pad style is now available, in limited designs. All current designs can be made in this style, just use the contact form on the site to enquire. These pads are also left-side only right now. Again, if you require a right-side version, just get in contact.
More magnet sizes are now in stock. The 5mm x 1mm are ideal for Games Workshop’s Adeptus Titanicus. They were thoughtful enough to include space for these magnets in the weapon mounts of their Warlord titan miniature. Space Marine was my first game, at the age of maybe 9, so I’m super-excited to find a couple of hours in which I can assemble my own!
The 5mm magnets are also available in .5mm thicknesses for tight spaces and 2mm, which are especially useful for securing heavier models on the magnetic movement trays. Make sure you glue the movement peg in if you’re sliding really heavy models around 🙂
For really big jobs, I’ve also added some 8mm x 2mm. A few of these should hold even 40K titan weapons in place!
The old N35 2mm x .5mm magnets have been replaced by some extra strong N52s, so that should be great for those of you who need to magnetise super-small miniatures. Especially useful for the weapon mounts on Dropfleet Commander’s ships.
The 2mm thick magnets are great for securing plastic miniatures to magnetic movement trays, too.
