I just got done making an order from shapeways for a captain vurst model that I think looks great,I also bought one elite rat warrior to see if I like it. I was wondering if anyone else had picked these up or even knows about them? A while back I purchased a bundle that included meeps, the cheddar golem, and some slugs, and I was really happy with them. You can find both users work here, I hope they continue to make more stuff, DT characters would be great. https://www.shapeways.com/marketplace/games/board-games/?tag...

I have that Vurst model and am really happy with it. I picked up a weird cheese wheel that looked great in painted photos, but didn't function like it was supposed to when it arrived. Very inexpensive though, so I didn't worry about it at all.

I saw that they had an Elite Rat bundle of 4 for $60. If anyone wants the Elite Rats that badly, or at 17 bucks each, you should just buy the game Tail Feathers. It's made by the same designer and has 6 Elite Rats in it. You could throw away the rest of the game (or give it to me) and be ahead money big time.

I have those as well, but I converted mine to be holding sword/shield to be used as regular rat warriors.

I bought all of the figures, Vurst, cheese golem, slugs, doodlebug, and I couldn't be happier. They are of amazing quality.

Ooh, I was just about to get that cheese wheel myself. It looks terrific. What was the issue?

I'm curious what you use 12 regular rat warriors for? Did you create alternate chapters or something?

Any free-to-download 3d models for M&M? $15-$30 for a single printed model is insane... especially for those with access to a 3d printer.

Edit: found some stuff here

It hurts me sooooo much that I bought elite rats on Shapeways before TF was released ... and then I bought TF. Now, I have LOTS of elite rats (and just a little money)

I cut the sword arms off the regular rats for the TF rats, so I still only have 6 rat warriors. I never liked the originals anyways, nothing like the art.

On the top-post:
The material is less flexible then the material for the miniatures that come with the game. (As you prolly know from the other figs you own)
Make sure you have a save way to storage them.
The tip of one of our elite rats broke when the miniature got lose in our box (so we painted it like it was cut off ???? )

Besides that we love the stuff we got from shapeways.
Have fun✨

I'm the designer of the cheese wheel. Never heard of any problem with it.
It should work fine. However a manufacturing defect is not impossible.
Please let me know the issue.

I wish someoen would do the three characters from downwood, and to a lesser extent vanestra and the undead dudes from glorm.

For venestra I use this mini: Reaper miniatures Arachnid Archer https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/spider/latest/77182
For the undead creatures for HoG I use base-game figures with an alternative paint scheme.
For skulker rats I use: reaper miniatures wererat assassins

I like both those reaper minis, and the cost is reasonable. Do you have or could in the future have a photo of them alongside the original minis? I am curious how the scales compare.

That is Venestra next to Tilda and the Cave Centipede (both primed). As you can see, she scales basically as big as the Cave Centipe (only a tad bigger), but she doesn't come with a base (not a big deal).

FYI all the minis are primed, which is why they are gray.



That is Venestra next to the Vurst ShapeWays model, extra detail.

I tried ordering several different spider minis from reaper, but they were all out of stock at my store's distributor right now. Do you have an image of vurst next to the other rats? Mine is in the "packing" stage so I'm hoping to get him soon.

I think Reaper sells direct if you don't want to wait on a distributor to re-stock it.

Sorry, it seems the pictures didn't post?

Wondering about the request. Would you like me to take a different picture (the picture is not a good quality one).
Or would you like me to simply re-upload the existing picture (for some reason the image is not appearing).

Let me know which of the above problems you are having so I can best assist.

Sorry for the very late reply.

Oh the Arachind Archer looks cool for Venestra. I'm probably going to get that now. Thanks for the link.
