Man this stuff is looking great.

My C&C so far would be that the Stealth Lady Ganger with the 2 pistols, her left arm I think should be straight.
I've always felt that models that are firing pistols should have straight arms.

What would really sell would be just bodies with no arms or heads, in various styles. Then sell weapon packs with arms, as well as the packs with just the weapons.

I appears that you can knock out new models in relatively quick time. So a set of say 5 different body styles for each House Gang, would be something to aim at.
Mixture of male & female. Running, standing shooting from the hip, standing shooting from the shoulder. Firing 2 pistols, firing one pistol. Standing holding a rifle across the waist and one holding it over the shoulder.

I'm just throwing out ideas here that'd make me pay you money :)

Thank you for all the input screamingabdab. I havent tried gluing the frosted ultra detail to itself yet. I'll want to try that before I risk having anyone buy it with that intent. I doubt it will be a problem, but better safe than sorry.

Yes, the idea of non-handed gangers with near hands&weapons sprue is the best to make IF you can and IF it's good for gluing :wink:

As you will make a H-to-H weapons sprue (your chainsaw was sooo good) .

Three/four models per gang is a good jog yet, don't bother yourself with making more and more bodies ; only if it please you to have it. You have already made a very good work for all players if they buy it, thanks a lot :D

GOOD NEWS

I had forgotten that i had extra pieces of Frosted ultra detail that were the wrong scale. I scraped the paint off and it glued like a wet dream. FYI I used Gorilla glue. I'll get cracking on the no head no hands versions of the figures.

On the other side of things, I'll be leaving the figures that I currently have up the way they are (save for the ammo drum fix). In order to have the hands and heads work, I'm going to have to develop a different system for the miniatures and the models that are up now would not convert well.

Excellent work Notnorm ! I think your gun are just amazing, very good for converting !

I also like the way you give these new gun to your minis ...


For the the separate arms, you are right, it is probably far easier for you to begin new minis : all the GW torso are specially designed for that, because it is not so easy.

Keep the good things comming, I will go on french forum for finding other fans of your work. Always better to cut the shipping fees !

Thanks Stronghead! As I said, it'll be a bit until I complete the ground work for a new set of figures, but I'll keep the Fringe up to date. In the meantime, A few people have ordered miniatures (THANK YOU) and I'd love to see pictures of them painted by someone who actually has some game.
<br>
One person bought the Zealot gang members before I had a chance to thicken them up and give them bigger weapons. Hopefully they don't look too different from other minis that they can't be used. I should have taken them down until I had updated them but I assumed anyone going to my shop would have gotten there from this forum.

Hey Notnorm, your designs are really getting good.

I am very interested in ordering some of these miniatures, but I am concerned by 3d printing in general, in that the resolution of a lot of printing methods available is quite coarse.

Could you post some more pictures of the actual product (I mean the newer, 'thicker' sculpts and the awesome new weapons) and not just the design? I don't mind if they are painted or not :) The one you posted a little above me is a bit small to get any idea really.

Woof. Stressful morning. Some unfortunate issues to address, gang. Due to a hiccup in updating the older files the "junk barrels" axis were off and weren't scaled properly. It will lead to a bit of frustration but no one will be charged for it because shapeways can't produce them at the wrong scale. A refund will be given to anyone who bought the part before I fixed it. I'm sorry for the inconvenience and I assure you that the new system I'm using is fool proof (even for someone as foolish as me) and won't lead to mistakes like this in the future. <br>

I also received notice that someone had ordered Stealth Shotgun and revolver minis in "glazed ceramic". If that is someone from eastern fringe, please let me know because I've taken great care to make it impossible to do so. Each material has a minimum wall thickness and detail level.

In response to Ineptmule, My new thicker models are set to arrive in about a week and I'll post picture ASAP. In the mean time, all I have to offer is a close up of the very first models I printed.

OLD MODEL, DO NOT JUDGE BASED ON MY CRAPPY OLD MODEL!

bear in mind that they are the old ones (when the scale was off by about 3mm) so the scale will be a bit bigger as well as my sculpt. His tiny guns should be enough to show that. They also gave me those barrels for free because of their strange yellow tint. Shapeways does customer service very well.
