Thanks, guys. Appreciate the supportive feedback. One more new sculpt. This rounds out my law enforcement team of Sgt Ponch (left) and Detective Friday (right)


I don't think they will ever factor into my games as a faction all their own, but perhaps they will join a crew on a bounty mission, or just swoop in at the end of a mission to arrest anyone disturbing the peace.


A Law Enforcement station is in the plans for 2022, so these two will have somewhere to drink coffee and fill out reports.

Nice! You have to have some law enforcement, can't have everyone running around shooting up the place. Might make for a great game of a crew trying to dodge the cops.
Just remember "If the Enemy is in range, so are YOU!

Glad you liked it. This little project has undergone some serious evolution since its inception. I started with store-bought figures and handmade terrain, and have morphed into handmade figures and machine-made (printed) terrain.

I fear it will be a while before I can consider approaching 3D printing as a hobby (flats don't make for easily ventilated spaces), but your very impressive handmade terrain feels accessible. It has just the right level of abstraction to match the scale too.

Nice work Cook.
I like them  :D.

Doodler consider water washable resin which smells less nasty AND much , much less of a fire hazard.

Most of the 3d printed items for this project (though not all) have been printed using a pretty entry-level FDM printer (Ender 3) with a few modifications. Next to no smell and I doubt there is much more of a fire hazard than something like a microwave oven.

I do design some things which print better in resin, but my main hobby is driven by simple FDM printing. Mostly because it is far less mess, and the ease to start and stop prints and projects allows me to print and "forget" something for days on end. That isn't really a good habit with resin printing.

Agreed with Z on the water washable resin. If you are going that route, I would suggest sticking to water washable. I don't find that the smell is bad beyond 1-2 feet from my printer, and even then I can notice it, but I never feel like the odor or fumes are overwhelming.

I did have a fire in my house though thank God not from IPA because that would have been a disaster,
even in a stone house like mine.
 It was put out with not a lot of damage other than my time ( trying to repaint white walls after a fire  = greyish walls = lots of wasted time = still greyish walls  :()

Therefore I opted for water washable , having a jerrycan of IPA ( i.e the amount required to wash resin minis )
at home makes me nervous, don't get me wrong I do have flammables at home but I try to have them in small amounts.

Alas, You can never be too safe with flammables even with small amounts.

My advice would be to put them in metal containers or plastic / glass & then in metal containers.

Oh, I agree less flammables in the house the better! I have done my homework and the water washable is the better way to go. I would have to have a cabinet for a resin printer, for we have cats and their hair get into everything regardless how much you clean. Enders provides a fire-resistant tent cover for their printers I don't know how well it would work for resin printers.
