Alloy Models wants to be your goto source for miniature 3d printable soldiers. Presenting a representation of the US Infantry of WWII, in high detail STL file format for wargaming, static displays, or just for fun. Models have been designed to be printed 1:100 (~18 mm from base when standing) but will look great at any scale!  These highly detailed STL model files are optimized for SLA or DLP printing. The results in SLA are amazing. FDM Printers will also work excellent for larger scales or if the absolute quality is not as important. If you have any questions as to the size, or of what to expect please download a sample model (FREE FIGURES) from Wargaming3d here.

40mm Standing, Printed using Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) in PLA.
1:100 Scale (~18mm) Printed in Resin

This Kickstarter is for the stl files only, there will be no physical products shipped.  Pictures on this Kickstarter page are of works in progress and may not represent the final versions of these pieces.  While these models are all test printed on an SLA printer, variances in the end-users machines are impossible for me to control. Manufacturer of these models is up to the end-user and I will not be held responsible for the results of any manufacturing process.

More information on the design process and printing process.

These models were originally designed to be 3d printed on FDM at approximately 15mm scale or greater, meaning that major details like weapons and some accessories will print fine and will hold recognition at the designed scale or larger.  Details look good scaled to 28mm on an FDM style machine with a layer height of 0.16mm.  However, a much finer and professional level of detail will be possible with an SLA style printer at 1:100 scale.  Throughout this process, I realized, with the low price point of SLA printing, that the detail possible on these models warranted the printer upgrade.  When printing using SLA, I rotate the figures approximately 45° backward and set anti-aliasing to x2.

Test prints in progress
