Quick Kicks 17 : The Mini Box & Hero Forge Custom 3D Printed Miniatures
The Mini Box
The Mini Box is a storage case for miniatures. It is not complicated or fancy but will keep your models safe while at home or on the road.
A sturdy cardboard construction that is designed to hold the weight of a small human but light weight and compact enough to work as an at home storage solution.
They are packing these boxes with enough foam to hold 160 models. The original foam will be 1″ Infantry foam and is designed to fit into most standard sized cases.
Box Dimensions -14.5″ x 11″ x 5.5″
Infantry Foam Dimensions 14″ x 10.5″ x 1.25″
The retail price on these boxes will be $30 making them cheaper than most of its competitors. They are accomplishing this by doing the designs ourselves and purchasing the boxes and foam in bulk.
Hero Forge Custom Miniatures
Whether you want to create stranger fare (good luck finding a dual-wielding halfling barbarian mini), capture key details (no one should be forced to make compromises on their dwarf’s beard style), or simply have more say in your mini than just the paint job, Hero Forge is for you!
There are many advantages to using 3D printing and digital models over the more traditional injection mold and sculpting techniques. Printing from digital models means they can easily scale our models up or down. Want 6 inch display versions of your party to immortalize their heroic deeds? Can do.
Playing a niche tabletop game that uses a larger or smaller scale? No problem. And that’s not all: the character builder will let you save high resolution screenshots of your model for your character sheet and overhead views for your favorite virtual tabletop program. You can even save your mini and edit it later so it can grow and change as your character does!
