Why the door has that strange base, is there another piece to assemble together?

Showdown35 got it right. I'm going to have a 3mmx3mm square edges in my board to depict the walls. The grove in the base of the door sits over the edge and hopefully helps the door to stay upright.

Aaaand another monster done. I'm starting to run out of the easy ones. I guess the zombie is still relatively easy, but the rest are pretty hard. I didn't go with any big redesign with the mummy, because I kind of like the original.

Looks great. Do you have the originals to stand next to them to compare size and for fun to see original and custom together?

I have been struggling to find a Mummy for my homebrew set of minis. I mostly use Reaper minis, but their mummies suck. Yours looks great! I have a friend with a 3D printer, so if you are sharing the files, please put me on the list for the Mummy!
It's like a new pair of underwear; at first it's constrictive, but after a while it becomes a part of you. I have to go...

Ah, another finn interested in gaming :mrgreen: You wouldn't happen to have a place for me to do a practical training for my degree, would you? I'll drop you a PM ;)

Beautiful stuff there!

Looks great. No surprise there.

What about the other figures makes them harder? Complexity of the sculpts? I would've thought it more difficult to create realistic humans than anything else.

Wow how did i miss these? Great stuff and nice sculpts there too. :D

Looks like a Form 1 or 2 printer? Have you considered reducing the thickness of your base plate, you can save a lot of resin there ;)
If you were to offer them for sale, selling prints is not the most economical - you will want to sort casting (resin i think, looking at geometries) which can be produce much faster and cheaper |_P
Happy to talk about doing a manufacturing run for you if you want to offer these to the inn patrons here, or wider afield.

Looking forward to what you create next! :D
