This page is a place to store all of our 18mm scale Wayfarer characters, collected from Pocket-Tactics sets and other various entries here on Thingiverse. We use these models for our tabletop roleplaying game, Wayfarer: Things Beyond Wonder, as well as our miniature wargame, Wayfarer Tactics.
All of the models here are intact, so if you want the split versions (which is how we generally print them) you'll want to go to the original pages. Otherwise, you'll need supports to print them. These were designed for 18mm scale gaming, so the detail on a lot of these isn't up to standard 28mm par, but if you want some quick 28mm (or "Heroic") scale figures, just increase the size by 166.6%.
We'll continue to update this page whenever we add a new model to the verse, and if you want to design models to add to this collection, shoot us a message and an STL so we can check it out:
QUICK DESIGN GUIDELINES: In general, we use round bases, 15mm for an average human-sized character, and 2mm high. The best thing to do is compare your piece to an existing model from this collection to get the scale right. Original designs only (don't copy someone else's work without their permission or submit models of copywritten characters). If we use your piece, we'll give you credit and link to your original page here on Thingiverse.
Also, if you like all the free stuff we make and want to support our efforts, drop a pledge to our Patreon page!
Splitting the models in halves allows them to be put into more dynamic poses and you'll get the highest level of detail (provided you don't mind a slight seam.) When you're printing these models in halves, you'll want a good and flat razor blade (like the disposable kinds that go into a quality box cutter) to pop them off the plate. Some will pull right off, but models with spears or swords sticking out or the like, you'll want to take care. Once you have them off the plate, a use a little model glue to assemble them. It generally helps to glue one side and line them up standing on their bases.
All of these models were designed in Sculptris, TinkerCAD, or more often a combination of the two. Many of them are available on TinkerCAD to hack and modify.
