Hi Everyone,

I am new to the forums here so not sure if anyone has posted this. I was looking for some good quality stl files for the elf quest pack. I have been on thingiverse and really haven't found good elf quest pack files.

Since yesterday evening I have a resin printer. Now I want the models from the elf quest pack :-)

Those minis on that page look quite fuzzy to me. Don't know if it is the original sculpt or just the stl

The original models are smaller than the 4 main characters. smaller bodies, smaller hands/feet, smaller heads. This is probably while I've always prefereed the Barbarian QP figures to the Elf ones.
Plus the scan is not the best, they miss lot of details on the faces.
Which 3D printer you get?

The Photon S has had a special offer.

Now I am fighting model supports. Tried to print the four heroes as they are on the front cover... missed half the model.
Added some supports, now I can't get the model out of the supports.

I am also interested in good quality models for the elf expansion. I have a friend with an Ender 3 that prints minis for me. The springer files are not good scans. Some creators on thingiverse have started to fix older scans of the expansions and added detail to them. What quality you want for your game is up to you though. I've had some thingiverse Ogres printed that aren't super detailed, but they did come out good for me. You could see the small details of the shirt buttons.

I'm envious of the resin printer, Anderas!

I know a guy who claims to have them done but doesn't want to share. *roll eyes*

I am on the search for the furniture skulls and rats. Can't find them easily on thingyverse

I would personally avoid the batch file HeroQuest elf s quest mage of the mirror part 1 & 2 by user dranac73 on Thingiverse as they are not the best quality. Also, the set is so makeshift that it uses Princess Zelda from the Hyrulian Warriors game for the titular princess. While NES Zelda or young OoT Zelda would have been better, HW Zelda is... well... really busty for a 10-year old girl. Hell the shabby work the guy did to blend the princess to the shallow-based mirror makes is way more top-heavy than it should. (yes, I know I'm a little fixated on the boobs, but this is comically bad! LOL) Don't count on the Key Token and Bottle Token to come out right, as they are not fully bonded to themselves. Although, the Throne Room and wall section looks neat (although, I never printed them due to size). And I did print the mirror as a set it looks nice.

Despite that, dranac73 did make some good quality 'repaired' figures for that game set: Female Elf Hero; Elven Archer;Elven Warrior; Giant Wolf and Archmage. I have printed all of them.

For the Orgres, you can print out his pair of Ogres, or you can use this DIY Ogre set perfect for Against the Ogre Horde.

His Men-At-Arms looks good on the surface, but the way he want about to make them look like they are holding their weapons was far from smooth. All the overlapping bits might not result in the best quality. For that classic interchangeable Men-At-Arms, you can go here. Or this, if you want them fused with their weapons.

As for an Elven Princess figure, I took an empty UK-styled HQ base and added dutchmogul's Noble Lady (18mm scale) figure to it in Blender. I made two figures: An Adult Princess enlarged by x1.333 to Heroic Scale; and a Child Princess in the 18mm scale, but with her chest flattened (as a backwards boob-job) with an editing tool. Although they came out better than expected (save for Adult Princess loosing a hand :bites-lip: ), my work was also shoddy as they suffer from bad Manifolding (the learning curve with Blender is a real pain!), so they are not going live on Thingiverse until I can fix that issue. Here is what the figure looks like at 18mm tall and with original base (HQ base would be about twice as wide):

I hope this is at all useful to you.
