Caballero Miniatures - 3D printed. Any good ?
« on: August 02, 2021, 12:26:25 PM »
I'm looking at these mins which appear very nice 

https://two-idiots-printing-service.myshopify.com/collections/caballero-miniatures

I've not bought 3D printed minis before so a bit skeptical. 

Can anyone who has them advise on the quality of the sculpts and resin ?   Are there a lot of plastic struts that need cleaning of and if so does this damage the mini much ? 

Thx     :)

Lord Marcus on here is one of the owners, I believe. He can certainly help to answer your questions about supports, etc. and might be able to provide photos of the actual finished product rather than just the 3D renders.

Loads of painted examples on the F***book page and group (other social networks are available).

They look   :o :o :o :o :o and have me gagging for 3D printing.

Not from this company, but I bought some 3D printed 28mm fantasy figures through a UK company on Ebay and they were not too fragile and already cleaned up, no supports or anything. Just ready to paint.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

The mini's are great. The best and cheapest solution in the long run is to buy a 3D resin printer, but if you want to order and don't live in the UK or US I suggest to buy them from https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100057271583554.

Here is Alexander the Great (28 mm) sculpted by Caballero Miniatures, which will be available soon at Studio Historia.

I'm definitely going to need one of those.

He will be availabe in 3 variants. Without helmet, with helmet and plume and with helmet without plume. I have have no idea how he will scale with Victrix miniatures or other miniatures.

Oof. Beautiful mini, but unfortunately I can't really justify one dollar per millimeter for just one miniature right now lol

Yes the price on eBay is quite high.    I've ordered some other Cabellaro figures via the TwoIdiotsPrintingService

https://two-idiots-printing-service.myshopify.com/

They are more affordable.

Well, hopefully the price will start going down once they sell a few  :D
