Create Custom Gaming Miniatures in Multiple Scales With HEROFORGE



This seems like a long-overdue idea: let RPG players customize their miniatures as easy as fantasy videogame players.

One day we’ll have this for action figures too. But in the meantime, the variance of scale from 1-6 inches on this 3-D printing deal is impressive, particularly if you’re a good painter (if not, we hope you enjoy flat white). Funded on Kickstarter, or so we hope, Heroforge will mostly have classic fantasy options at launch, but expects to add sci-fi, western, steampunk and more for future users.

Still, I’m not sure they have “Manicorn with cramming spear” as a possibility yet. But who knows; fund them and they may add it.
