Re: Index of Classic Heroscape .stl files

These are great - THANK YOU!

I am not super familiar with the 3D printing process. For a custom print - could you increase the size? Like say I wanted a Minion of Utgar to be about 50% larger, is that easy to do?

I'll drop you a PM (and some Rep) as well.

Scaling the whole figure with base is 10 seconds easy. If you want the figure larger but the base a standard size it might take me 5 minutes to scale the figure and import a larger standard base. But both are simple.


When I get home tonight I'll respond to your PM.

Ive actually printed out quite a few of these figures so far WK. I printed out 8 fire elementals for my brother for the last tournament we went to to run a kurrock firestorm. He did pretty well. I printed 3 flag bearers that I didnt have and a zetacron that will probably end up on a game prize table. I printed a couple of wo sa gas a while back. I'm now printing up a set of blade gruts but a bit bigger to be orc warlords. Not sure how I'm going to paint them up yet. Its gonna be awesome. I look forward to what else you come up with here. I may have to do some big minions as well. Giant demons, cant get enough giant demons.

Some files are a lot cleaner than others. Its very easy to scale them up and down in my slicer before printing. I printed out a group of blade gruts that are truly brute gruts. On all these files I have to scale them up 2540% to make them normal size. I scaled the 4 orcs up to 3500%. The base overlaps a normal hex space a little bit, but they turned out fantastic. Im going to paint them up as orc warchiefs or something. The details on the blade gruts is pretty decent. I also printed out an ornak, acolarth, and sir gilbert normal size. @White Knight is there any way I can help you with this project. Its really great and would love to try to clean up some of the details on some of the lower poly models. Ive been getting wrecked by my UC lately but plan on posting up some of the cool stuff from this thread that Ive printed.

Just out of curiosity...how much do you think it costed to print out the elementals. I've thought about using the elementals as figures for a custom I'm debating but they are cost prohibitive...Just trying to get an idea. Have you printed off any of the Vipers...the elite and Amoroc specifically. Basically I'm asking whats the material cost here a person would be looking at. I don't have a 3D printer...yet...but I am intrigued.

Re: Index of Classic Heroscape .stl files

Which elementals japes?
HeroClix has great substitutes for the Fire ones.


The plastic is fairly cheap once you get the printer.

I guess my question was more general than I made it...I'm just curious how much a regular medium sized figure would cost to print? Also can you do hallow things as well...like the RttFF trees for instance?

The cost of the figures depends on how much time it took for the mini and how much filament the mini uses. There are a bunch of factors to this. First is the quality of the machine. Machines that run a higher quality may be more expensive.(there are some exceptions). Then there is the speed. Generally faster means less detail. The slower it goes the longer the machine runs using more power but equally wears on the machine as if you were to run it faster. There is the knowlege factor built in where you have to dial in your machine to make it work best for you with maintenance and the correct settings. Lastly there is filament. The filament comes in different qualities by price. The cheaper stuff gets you some really cheap things but may ruin your nozzles faster. I definitely recommend buying a 3d printer if your half the plasticrack addict I am. My wife bought me 2 rolls of filament for my birthday to make whatever I like. When buying figurines from other places figuring in what shipping costs is something you want to do as well. It has went up since I last shipped anything out. My machine made each fire elemental in about 30min including the base. It made the giant orcs about an hour and 20 to an hour and 30 depending on the sculpt. Generally on my printer it takes about 45 min for a standard 28mm figurine to print on my custom settings that are faster than the stock settings.

Re: Index of Classic Heroscape .stl files



I used clear PETG for my fire elemental and did a red, orange, and yellow wash. I'm happy with how they turned out.

The clear PETG is $28 for 1kg, which is about 100 meters (I haven't done the density calculation). A medium Heroscape figure uses about .5m to 1m of filament. That's about $.14 to $.28 a figure, about a quarter a figure.

Machine time is 20 minutes to 4+ hours depending on the desired resolution and complexity. I use fairly fast settings for mine, since I haven't seen much difference with slower settings. So I'm on the lower end of time. But TREX's printer has better resolution so it probably takes longer.

There is also some time involved in cleaning off support structures after the print.

But the basic material cost is low.

Re: Index of Classic Heroscape .stl files

This thread has me contemplating getting a 3d printer! How do you think these would turn out with a cheap one like the Ender 3?
