This is precisely what I want to get in to. Looks good, I've a few questions:

What program did you use to make your 3D renders of the models?
Did you get someone else to actually print them for you or do you own a 3D printer?
What material was used for the final product?

How much did it cost to have them made?

I've got some skills with 3DS Max and have been thinking about making my own Nuns With Guns. How much detail can you really get with the company you are using?

@metalmonk Being sure to avoid stepping on any IP toes, if you can cheaply make a Grey Knight Terminator Psycannon and the 3 combi-bolter types I think you'll get quite a few sales. If they are good enough quality I'd buy some for sure.

I've already bought some of my 40k weapons from Shapeways and they came out pretty good.

if you have any free time, i would like to see if you could produce a 3D file for me. i have a symbol i would like to use for my marines. since you said that companys plastic is flexible. i would love to have some icons to glue on to my shoulder pads. so theres no worries of IP here.

costs about £10 pet spruce in my pics. the detail can be as small as 16 microns. im sorry you cant really see my detail as it is terrable material to photo, ill get some resin pics up once my vacuum chamber arrives, plus pp and editing etc

hi yes this would be possible but it would get expensive if you wanted say 100 icons if you wanted a large amount it would be better for you to get 5 printed then cast them from the printed ones

That would be my plan. Get a few sizes, vehicle, pad, and maybe knee pad size. Then copy them myself.
I didn't want to bring up casting since I seen another topic get side tracked. And my own experience with a guide I made here awhile back. It was decided in the end to remove it. Lol. stealthy stealth suits

They look very nice. Anyway you can prime them so we can see them better?
Are you doing this for your own personal use, or will you be selling them?
hello

the plan is to sell them once im sorted, doing bases and others to. i wont prime them because they are my master copies so ill need them to make more moulds when they degrade to much. i will add images of cast ones which will be grey. my vacuum chamber cleared customs so wont be long now

Ok cool, i am just wondering how smooth the larger pieces will be and if they will contain any imperfections in the cutting/making process.
the surfaces are perfect, no bubbles or lumps. and they feel smooth to the touch
