Re: Index of Classic Heroscape .stl files

@White Knight , So I've done a bit of learning and fiddling with blender and got re-excited about these. That combined with me converting my Heroscape Collection into my Heroscape Skirmish Assault format with some really fun an easy tricks on my latest variant of accessories for it. After messing with some of your matte files, I finally figured the easiest way to remove them from the bases you had on there. DUH! it was so easy once I figured it out. I was trying to delete all the individual vertices. When I could have just separated the mesh parts. I should be getting my turntable by tuesday to go with my light box that I have. I've still got to mess with a few things for the box to get it optimal I think. Me and my brother are for sure going to help out with this project once everything comes together. I will probably start with the figures I'm wanting multiples of the most. Another few things I like about printing the figures separate from the bases are:
1. Pulling supports from the bottoms of the models is easier without the base attached.
2. The base can be spray painted brown separately and have a sticker added to it.
3. The model can be printed at a smaller layer height giving a better print for the model itself without having to do the same for the base. I generally print all my scape bases at .2 layer height and they are made quickly and printed upside down so there isn't extra support needed on the base. Where as the model is printed anywhere from a .06-.1 layer height and looks great.
4. Printing the models separate from the bases lets you resize them into giant or tiny models of the same sculpt without producing weird sized bases to go with them. I personally would think it very fun to make some oversized or undersized versions of some of the monsters. I'm looking a dragons, ogres, trolls, Hydras, yetis, etc.

I'd be very curious what others think about my little list, and if they have any ideas to add to it.
