Quick little anti-tutorial today, inspired by Goobertown's excellent video on magnetizing miniature bases. I go the opposite route, attaching 1" metal washers to my mini bases and magnetizing my storage boxes and painting handles instead.
Making Tabletop Simulator Minis With Blender
I recently figured out a decent pipeline to get Blender models into Tabletop Simulator (TTS) for online gaming. Let's face it, if I'm painting digital minis I can keep putting off painting my physical ones.
Hero Forge and Shapeways, Part IV
Bonus Content I think I found my answer. This is my GTA-hole printed by Impact Miniatures. My friend told me about this small shop and I was able to send Tom the .STL file right over facebook.

For the other two, I downloaded the .stl files and uploaded them to Shapeways. Shapeways recently revamped the materials they offer and I … Continue reading Hero Forge and Shapeways, Part I
