I decided to do up a Bolt Action Soviets army this past summer. But not having a lot of gaming time I did not want to put in a large sum of money to do it. So I did a little searching and found the Dreamforge plastic Russians on sale for $8 a box of 31 plus parts. Three boxes of those and running my 3d printer on the vehicles and guns has produced a nice force, probably less than $50 total. Painting is a breeze with these and I am having fun with the basing. Now on to the winter Soviets.

Really nice work
I think the print lines running vertically is a good idea – then the weathering hides em better08/09/2019 at 02:18 #121592
It varies. Some are lengthways some print on end. I experimented quite a bit on these.10/09/2019 at 23:52 #121848

The resolution on this particular printer just doesn’t cut it for figures. I am eyeing a resin printer maybe for Christmas that will do the trick.

Thanks, how much do you reckon a typical tank costs you in $ to make? (do you get the files for free?)
most of my files are free, found on thingiverse.com. The filament I buy runs about $17 per kilo. I just weighed a 1/56 scale Sherman I had handy and it came to 62 grams for a cost of $1.06. Give or take a few grams for supports and cleanup
