Mech Miniatures

Postby go0gleplex » Thu Mar 25, 2010 9:03 pm

If you've not already seen these on Charles Oines shapeways store...these minis seem to have some potential; print on demand. I'm told that Charles has some additional units in store with hands and such. Well worth checking out.

I don't know. The only idea of scale is what he shows in relation to the quarter, so they appear to be good small to middle sized units. I think he's posted some actual printed pics on SCN, but am not certain.

Well they definitely look like that one image from the book where you have all of those tasty 3d models.

They come pretty darn close, that's for sure. If I was employed and had a budget, I'd get a couple myself...though I've already decided the big arm gun barrel has to go. Be a bit of a kitbash for a more in-scale weapon system. When he starts releasing the faction with hands and melee weapons, it'll be kitbash galore time.

Those look like they would work well also. Though I've no idea of the detailing/ molding quality.

I have one. (I got it as a bonus from a ebay purchase) I can take a couple of pics if you like. The quality isn't too shabby. Not for the price anyway. ($30 for the set including shipping)

I think that would be cool. If for nothing more than informational purposes.
