I am thinking of buying one; they look too handy. Unfortunately I have no idea what I should be looking for.

The Prusa/Wanhao/Maker printer (it's branded as many different things) is a very good starting printer for around £300.
It is the most supported on Thingiverse (where the free files come from) and there are endless Youtube videos and articles by its users to advise and troubleshoot.

I got mine from here (so you can see what it looks like):
https://www.technologyoutlet.co.uk/products/3d-printer-wanhao-duplicator-i3

My current printer is this one:
https://www.technologyoutlet.co.uk/products/omega-i3-3d-printer

Which costs £400 but has several improvements over the Wanhao i3.

The one I want to end up with costs £2000
That'll be some time in the future though ;)

Splendid stuff, a right motley and scurvy looking bunch. ;D

If I had to pick a favourite group its the lady pirates. I love the one with the red dress and eye patch combination ;D

Yarrr.
The lady pirates are indeed splendid, but you can't argue with the Dread Pirate Roberts and his foes...

Where did the round wicker shields, the middle two warriors have, come from?

The shields come with the miniatures.

Excellent, the pirates are looking suitably ferocious, I concur with the view that the lady pirates are my favourite group, but I do like ladies with big pistol's.  ;)

I've been slaving at the painting table quite a lot recently.
Here's my Chinese pirate crew:





They're led by a mysterious sorcerer (of course) Master Gau and his spectral foo dogs formed from opium smoke and suggestion.



Some civilians and major NPCs.





And my terrain mat from Deep Cut studios
