In this campaign i offer you 3D modelled holders for miniature painting.You can get 3D files for printing with your own 3D printer and/or handcasted resin holders. I also offer you a small tray with magnet foil to put your magnetized holders onto. All of my prepoduction models helped me a lot while working with very small minis and i hope you find them usefull too.
With the campaign money i will produce some molds to casts more of these helpers out of resin.
Small mini holders with tray (100x50mm):
Small mini holders with 3D printed example minis:
The mini holders get rare earth magnet to hold them firm on the magnetized tray. A 6x2mm or 2x2mm will do for these sizes. The structure with the small knobs gives a good grip an the pieces but you can still move them through the fingers easily.
Bigger holders (cork sized) for normal sized 28mm minis (3D printed bard, barmaid and goblin bard). For resin holders i still need to get some bigger magnets or magnet foil. The small 6x2mm ones are only good for lighweight 3D printed holders with plastic or resin minis. The rough surface structure gives a good grip on the holders.
Big ones (round 50mm) for even greater minis or vehicles
These holders are made for small vehicles/models (e.g. a bike or ballistae) or bigger minis. The picture is of a 3D printed one with acetone finish (smooth surface). The 3D printed ones need a magnet foil on the bottom or the minis might fall over. The resin ones that i provide are so heavy that normally no minis will fall over. The rough surface structure gives a good grip on the holders.
3D files for your 3D printer
Just print your helpers with my 3D STL files in any amount you need them add a piece of double sided tape and a mini and start painting! Add some small magnets to hold them firm on the trays.
Handcasted little helpers
For those without a 3D printer i offer handcasted resin miniature holders and trays.
You need no printer and you have no work with them. Just put a piece of doubleside tape on the helpers, add a mini and start painting!
Some helpers are heavy and need no magnets at all. Only the small ones should be used with magnets on a magnet tray.
This is a plain and simple campaign. All you see is already done and i work with the helpers for myself. If you like the idea just grab a pledge and you can get the tools for your own work.
At the moment there are no planned stretch goals but if there is some feedback i will add a few stretch goals (free STL files for 3D pledges or free Resin casts for the Resin cast pledge). Just leave me a comment what variation or improvement is needed.
You can choose any of these add ons for the resin pledge. Just sum up the overall amount and pledge it. After the campaign i will sent a survey which ones i should deliver. They are cast in beige resin.

Risks and challenges
There is no great risk for the 3D files. Almost all are ready to be uploaded to an online plattform. Maybe some upcoming add ons need some additional work.
The highest risk is a high demand in handcasted pieces. In this case the delivery might take some time.
If this happens i will expand my casting possibilities with more molds to speed up the casting process or ask a partner to help me.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
