Just a thought. I've become interested in learning how to play Pocket-Tactics, so I'm in the process of printing two of the Pocket-Tactics factions (scaled to 28mm) using the split pieces. I've had really good luck using the spin welding method to join the pieces together. It holds them together solid and as an added bonus there are no visible seams if you do a little post-weld cleaning on the weld bead. It takes a little practice, but in the end the results are awesome. Links below to learn more about spin welding.

Either way, love your models. Keep them coming

Ooh, cool... okay, we're going to look into this. Thanks for the links!

I love all your stuff but could you tell me what you use for paint? Thanks

Hey, thank you! Well, this particular piece isn't painted, but when I paint, I mostly use Citadel and Reaper brands of acrylic model paints. P3 and Game Colour are really good as well. I actually skip the primer phase and paint directly onto black ABS or PLA filament.

I am planning on making them in light grey, do you think that the paint would work on that too?

Oh, definitely. You can always spray primer them if you need to, but regardless, you can paint our colors directly onto the surface.

Thanks, hopefully I will be posting makes soon.
