Having cleared out nearly all my miniature models from Dungeons and Dragons & Warhammer, I was wondering about replacing some of them. Where to buy them and how to get them painted. Here are my notes. 

  1. A thread on D&D and Beyond, on sourcing the miniatures
  2. This guy does 3D printing STLs  for Locatha/Fishmen, Nov 2019

I was looking for a Tabaxi Rogue, and there seems to be an obvious selection, which google finds easily, and on having them painted,

  1. http://www.golempaintingstudio.co.uk
  2. The white weasel miniature painting studio, perhaps more interested in warhammer armies
  3. http://www.whitewashstudio.co.uk, seems more open to limited numbers
  4. https://siegestudios.co.uk/services/painting/
  5. https://www.flgpaintstudio.com
  6. https://ravensnestpainting.com/ (looks like they’ve gone)

I found this video, “I paid Artists on Fiverr to paint my Warhammer – Here’s what happened!” so maybe I should look there too, if I ever get round to it. Its author, Squidmar, also did this, “3D Printing your Warhammer Army proxies – Is it possible? (Printed with Anycubic Photon)“, another Youtube video.

3D printing is going to change this business.

Yup, here’s heroforge! I made three template, an elf, a tortle and a tabxi!

And two and half years later, they offer precoloured figures, here’s the 2021 version of these characters.

    1. Hi Dave, all of the miniature painting services you mentioned above are all top quality painters. I don’t think you could go wrong by choosing either one of them. I’ve looked through their galleries and they all do fantastic work.

      However, if you ever want to hire a veteran miniature painter with over 30 years experience simply send me an email and we can talk 😉
