Is it possible to use a high gloss varnish to cover those "sandstone" miniatures?

Did you try once?

White strong and flexible is SLS powder printing

Only a problem if you mind a grainy sandstone texture

"Frosted ultra detail" = Objet 30 Prime, Veroclear at 16um Z will be your best bet on their materials to get good detail and a smother surface.
To better remove the frostiness of the print, soak in a 5% Sodium Hydroxide (drain cleaner) solution for up to 40 minutes then scrub with a toothbrush. |_P


I ordered the strong and flexible standard option.
The one pictured above. I'd prefer more durable. I don't need ultra fine detail. Especially if it's more brittle.

I read that it's properly scaled to the HQ minis. Anyone have any comparison pics?

I saw online a tutorial on how to melt away the grainy surface with a homemade chemical mist bath. It might help you out if the grain is too pronounced.

A Marvel-styled Morcar/Zargon miniature has been made in lead. I'm not sure if more may be bought from Geoff Sims at Oakbound Miniatures who did the commission. Check out this blog for the story.

Cool. Thanks for the info.
I'll look into the Geoff Sims mini. I'd love to add to my HQ collection.

It looks like you'll have to contact a guy who has some. It looks like he hangs out in the linked Oldhammer forum by the username Weazil. I've just joined there and am working on getting in touch.

Have you heard anything back from him yet? Just wondering because I sighed up at old hammer to try to receive a miniature as well.
