I’ve been experimenting with some figures created by “Duchmogul” on thingiverse. The figures are billed as 18mm but after fiddling with scaling, I have found that they match 1/72 scale figures perfectly as is. There are some older models that he has done that are more in line with 20mm figures but that is neither here nor there. They all do work without modification to scale. I’ve printed them perpendicularly with mixed results. The lines are rather pronounced and as they are fairly detailed, sanding is not really an option. Painting these figures requires an old school mentality. Much of the detail has to be painted in by hand not unlike painting in the belts and straps on some of the very old figures out there. The figure I tested with is called “Hollow Soldier.” He sort of screams “Barrow Wight” or “Ghost” so some sort of dull gray paint scheme will be in order. here is the finished rough along side of a Viking Huscarl. The cloak on the Huscarl shows off the print lines. At 3 feet away, they are hardly noticeable, especially to the Grognard’s eyes.
And there you have it. It is rainy today so there is no chance this fine fellow will be primed. I’ll post another WIP pic or two when the time comes.
