A couple of weeks ago I bought the Forward March studio library. I have been following the developments some time, and wanted to check what is included.
With regards to wargaming, I have started the hobby around 6 years ago, with 2mm Irregular Miniatures Napoleonics. At the moment I am hoping to start some 2mm medieval forces. Therefore I was looking to different suppliers.
So that how it start rolling.
Unfortunately I have no budget at this time to acquire some figures. (either printing or buying). But in my daily job as Mechanical Engineer, I am used to make 3D models. Therefore I started to check the supplied models from the library.
I was somewhat offset by the low quality of the models, and had expected a little more refined models. But I expect that when printing these, they are to small to distinguish those details.
(As example, on the irregular miniatures 2mm Napoleonics there is a resemblance of a rifle and napsack.)
Being a engineer I have made some 3D prints earlier, for the company. Therefore I have some experience in what the limitations are. So I began checking, what would I design differently. So I have created some 3D models, and am curious how these would compare. Unfortunately I don't have access to the lab page on the forum. So I will only show some pictures. But if people are interested to try these models out, please let me know, and I will check if I can get access to the Lab page.
First an overview:
