Hi,

I've been out of the mice for a little while and really want to picknup where i left off.

I don't like to play with unpainted models and also want a model for everything there is (actually learning to sculp for that reason).

I still have a lot to do and don't get to play that often, so me and my gaming group have only finished sorrow and remembrance...

... The point is...

Does anyone know when Downwood tales is going to be released, so i know what things to put on my priority list.

Thanks.

Ermahgerd!!! This is amazing! There's even a combo pack with a ladybug for Maginos!

My Shapeways order was rejected:

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Hi,

After taking a closer look, we cannot print part of your order 399601, placed on 03/08/2014.

We’ve refunded $21.75 to your original payment method for the following:

1 X Cheese Golem & Ladybug in Frosted Ultra Detail designed by Roolz - $15.25
Given the nature of 3D printing, converting digital files into physical products, every now and then we catch designs that would be too fragile to create in certain materials. Though we do our best to identify these issues as early as possible, some are only found during the manufacturing process. What you can do is:

Contact the product designer -- they can help resolve the issues found during the manufacturing process.
Shop for other designs from these these trending products!
Your continued satisfaction is our top priority. If you have questions, or if we can improve your Shapeways experience in any way possible, please email us at: service@shapeways.com.

Kind regards,

The Shapeways Team
service@shapeways.com

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Tried emailing the designer and the link on the webpage kept timing out.

I'm the designer.
Shapeways had a problem with the 3D file processing of this model, which is solved now. You should receive a message from them saying that you can re-order (or you can just re-order right now).

Again?? WTF?
This is becoming very annoying.
These models have been printed more than 30 times, as I write this. I just checked my shapeways' model page and I see no issue/alert on the two materials listed... but after browsing their forums it seems like Shapeways has the "habit" of discovering a new "printing problem" every now and then...
Anyway, I'll try to solve this next week and I'll let you know.
Otherwise, I'll just remove my models from their store. Solving their stuff is just too time-consuming, especially since I make zero cash on it.

OK I re-checked this morning.
As I write, the last order of the model "golem+ladybug" was on sunday (06 april; 2 models ordered in Frosted Ultra Detail material). There's no issue/alert on the model's page (i.e. everything's "green") and I've received no e-mail alert from Shapeways (when there's a problem, Shapeways typically e-mails the designer, remove the problematic material(s) from the choice list and/or highlight stuff in red). Sorry but there's nothing I can do right now, it's supposed to work fine.
If it happens again, please GM me directly.

I'll try again. In the meantime, any interest in designing slug minis?



Also, what program do you use for designing?

Yep, the slug minis are already designed & prototyped... I'm just waiting for the french release of the expansion to get my hands on an accurate colour reference and see if they look good enough once painted.

I use a CAD software, because that's what I'm skilled at, but CAD's not the best tool for sculpting minis...

Hi guys & girls, I just remembered I forgot to keep you posted about the slug minis, in case you hadn't noticed the pics in the gallery.
They look quite good once painted :

Unpainted :

I've made them "public" on an [online 3D printing service].
(I personally won't put the link or site name, to avoid any brutal thread & pic deletion because "promotion is against the rules" and so on. Anyway...)

Looks sweet. Are you considering doing some of the others from the base set (Vurst, Elites, Skitter-clak, and Vanestra)?

Thanx.

I made the Golem and Meeps for the basegame, and slugs for the expansion, but nothing else.
The 3D software I use is not suited for textures such as fur, so I don't plan on making elite rats, etc.
I could make props/tokens (mousetraps, grapes, etc) but I prefer using the flat cardboard ones. However if someone's interested, just let me know and I'll take a look.

FYI they've been ordered by maybe 15 people in the past 2 months, zero problem.
