WHY are you Hatchin’ these Toys?
I’ve always been passionate about creating all sorts of characters, stories and creatures. In my youth that manifested as an ability to use writing to forge tales and worlds. In my teen years it transitioned to a desire for the visual arts.
The combined passion for storytelling and sculpture inevitably brought me towards tabletop and wargaming. Dungeons & Dragons and Warhammer:40k were a natural fit for me. As a player and Dungeon Master I came to the conclusion that there was just not enough choice when it came to finding that one perfect mini for your character that fits your background, not enough variety in available monsters and a lack of good-looking, affordable environments. With the help of 3D Printing I hope to at least help those who, like me, have struggled in that regard.
Okay, but HOW are you making them?
The answer is really simple – by using digital sculpting software and various 3d modeling techniques. Sculpting for 3D Printing is a bit different from sculpting for games or movies. Since the models I’m making will become real-life miniatures I have to make sure that they pair well with most 3D Printers. All files are checked and double-checked for errors, sizes, thickness and I’ve made sure that they would print well. If you want to learn more about the process of digital sculpting and preparing for 3D Printing feel free to contact me at any time!
WHAT exactly is the end result?
The end result are some, hopefully, great-looking miniatures for board games, collectibles and toys. I try to do all sorts of things and I don’t shy away from challenges. If you didn’t find what you were looking for on the store, don’t be afraid! It might soon pop-up. Don’t wanna wait?
