Very nice fantasy sculpt!
Easily on par with the HeroForge stuff, if not better.
Gonna give this a test print.

Update: Printed it on a Ender 2 with 0.3 nozzle @ 0.12 layer height and scaled to 50mm height with standard Cura line supports in PLA.
Print came out almost flawlessly, only broke off the sword pommel during support removal, same with the helmet crest.
Some observations and tips:

  • make the area where the crest connects to the helmet a little sturdier if possible
  • make the sword pommel a little sturdier and give it more area to connect with the model
  • the round pad-like decorations on the armguards would fit better on the elbows or knees, they make the armguards look unrealistically and unpractically large and heavy.
  • the shield has a bit of a strange shape. A more classical shape would fit better maybe?
  • what is this knights armor supposed to be? A segmented metal or leather breast plate over chain mail or fabric?

Overall, this model should print perfectly fine on FDM at sizes 60mm or greater, below that there are a few quite delicate parts prone to breaking.

Anyhow, looking forward to paint this one!

Glad to hear you like em. I appreciate the comment :)
I remember looking at the HeroForge stuff when I first got into D&D and thinking they didnt quite look right. I think they are good for what they are, but I wanted a little more realistic proportions, and better poses for my stuff. Good luck with the print!

Yeah, the HeroForge style is controversial. Not everybodys cup of tea.
Especially the outfits are a little overdone fantasy style, but everything is optimised to print nicely.
Also, not much competition yet offering any better quality alternatives or significantly better style.
