Ok so I am becoming the Queen of Kickstarter game news around here. So, keeping with tradition I bring you yet another Kickstarter campaign. This time we have a new company called Shapeit that is offering a program where you can create your own miniatures.
How this works is that you send them screen shots of the miniature you would like to create and then they make a 3D model and then send it to be printed. By some of the pictures posted on their Kickstarter page, the example miniatures look ok, some better than others and the pricing seems a little steep.
However, I honestly do not know what the manufacturing casts would be. But I cannot see getting an army of figures this way as these are more for custom collectable miniatures. The materials are either plastic for the small and medium figures or gypsum based powder, to which I wonder how durable those will be? So if you are looking for the one of a kind item for your collection you might want to check them out.
Will you be going custom too?
