OK need 2 troll for game in 2 weeks going to print them tomorrow. love the detail. will post as soon as i print it

If you want your models be printed, the best advice would be, buy yourself a 3d-printer (resin and/or fdm) and try it yourself.
For this specific model: the club should touch the surface like the foots. It makes the print easier and stabilise the model when printed.
Every part that starts in midair, like hair, fur, fingertips needs support or the print will fail. It is like you try to stay only on one toe while the ground is moving. And even if you can print this (it is not impossible, only difficult), removing the support will most of the time end in breaking some parts.
The fur on the right arm is so thin, that most fdm printers can't print this and for resin you need a support for every hair and removing the support will break the hairs, so in the printed model, you will not see such fine structures.

Now to the positive side. I think you are way better than a novice. Because the resin printer market is growing fast, the demand of models with high details will rise. If you aren't already, go for example to the facebook group "the tabletop 3d printing guild". You get there a big platform to show your models. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for your feedback, really appreciate it.
A lot of my models are already printed. But yes, lack the experience that gives the printer. Be sure i'll buy it when save money.
Models are originally designed for high-precision printers.
And what's the problem with supports? When I study materials on 3D printing, there is no model behind the supports, and this is considered normal. In the future, I have a plan to divide the model into pieces, which is more convenient to print. But at this stage, I just do not want to spend time on it.
Studying not only modeling techniques but printed models from other authors too. I see that there are many very highly detailed models with much more subtle elements. So, here have not yet found a balance.
Thanks again for your feedback and recommendations. I'll think about it all. Special thanks for information about group, looking for such places.
Best regards.
