I see there is a place for some sort of waist joint, but I don't see anything that would fit between the upper and lower portions. The waist joint looks like it is for the hips. Am I missing something?

the cream of the crop raises to the top
(シ )シ

are there any plans to make a hollow version of the body for resin printers? if not how would i go about doing that? i've tried meshmixer but it produces garbage when i try to hollow it. i'm using a photon for this print.

I just uploaded a merged version of the body, it should help you as it is now a single solid part, hollowing should work

can you make a single print file?

any chance this guy could get the double shooty weapon arms?

What do you mean ? Helverins?

ya, thats the name of them

Love this! I cannot wait to print some of these out!

sweet. great detail looks really good.

when i put this into s3d and print preview it comes out with missing layers and some times large parts of the models?

I solved it using the "separate connected surfaces" option. Then, I put together a group with all the resulting pieces.
I did this with each STL separately.

I don't know s3d. But cura handles it fine as long as you check the " union overlapping volumes" option in mesh fixes. There should be something similar in your slicer

so happy with this ! THANK YOU!!!!!! wanted something to test my ender 3 on and i couldnt be more thrilled.

This is beautiful! What settings did you print this on? And where did you get the skills on the shoulder guards?

There is a version of shoulders and leg armour with skulls

Thank you for posting this fantastic model it will provide a base for a lot of knights to come.

Hi. Fantastic model! Could you post information about quantity of all parts I should print and which should I mirror if so? Thanks in advance!

I'm printing this at 200% because I think this is what a Knight SHOULD look like. Excellent work SebTheis

20cm Armiger!
You will have really good details on the print

Quick questions: what is the best way to glue the parts together? What glue?


  • superglue for flat surfaces
  • green stuff or any other refilling paste can help fill little interstitial space
  • hot glue for loose fits

I’m one part short of a complete set.
Will start assembly tomorrow and post a pic :)

Any tips for getting more details in the print? What settings should I use to capture the little bolt details? First time printing.

Just finished printing, considering making a second. Any chance you're willing to post the uncut center body section? They way you've got it cut now works excellently for printing, but the crack down the center is driving me nuts.

It's done. can't wait to see your make(s) !

Thanks man. Much appreciated. I'll throw up an assembled picture tonight after work.

Well I designed it only by half . But I'll upload the mirrored/fusioned part as a whole if you want

Hey Seb!

Great work as always, I prefer to build models, so I enjoy printing the pieces separately (not sure if this is the norm for others). While printing this awesome guy out I had some difficulties fitting the upper leg files with the lower leg. As in after trying 5 different orientations to try and achieve the best circle, I still can not actually get the pieces to connect properly.
Any chance you could offset the cylinder on the lower leg in a little? Maybe shrink the diameter by .2mm?

No clue how your modeling these awesome things, if it is easy I'd appreciate it, if not I'll get to making a remix eventually.

One simple way would be to upscale the upper legs a bit. For example 3or 5 %

are you sure that this is fairly close to the scale of the model coming out? I don't want to print it and end up having it be too small lol

I honestly don't know the real exact size, as the fig is not yet available for sale. I sized the model based on some forum discussion about its size. They compared the size of the human hatch on the top with the knight and crossed it with the few info we have from GW.
Should be fairly good

Why the link ?

great work again, like a lot of your models as proxy for 40k, keep up the good work and a a dwarfen engineers ale on my tap.

Great model, notice you didn't have upper right legs, so just quickly made up the upper right leg file:

Thanks for saving me the time! Printing mine now.

Salut, Super model, je suis en train de le terminé, mais as-tu le fichier STL de la base ? C'est quel diamètre ?

Many thanks Seb , very cool work ))))))))))))

Just realized theres no top mounted weapon.

Dude you are insane! Awesome man!

Wow very good job. One cuestion where i can find the garins deadnougth? Thanks

I print it when my f@#^}@#§ dagoma working again. :D

Nice work

Ah french machine... ;-)

French machine with cheap chinese parts :)

the legs are not in the zip?

Now it's complete.

Well no
I'm working on it
It's a lot of work to design something like this in so little time

oh i didnt mean to come off as ungrateful :3 i had just gotten the impression there were legs due to the pic :3

Lol, you're a crazy guy ;)
Awesome work as always, but especially impressive for the short time.
I'm really looking forward to the finished model.

Is there any way you could post a kind of build guide or colour coded model?

when it will be finished i will, but it is straightforward

HAHAHAH IT BEGINS. Going to clean up my paint station then start printing.

printing some proto-parts right now. The double-bladed chainsword was fun to model

3.5 hours for one part of the body at 0.075 resolution 20mm/s. I'll post a make after it's done and keep it up to date as I go.

good news, everything is easy to print, even the chainsaw came out really nice !
