I was looking into some of the miniatures designed on here and i was wondering about what the materials are like for instance what material would have about the same strength and feel to it as say a games workshop plastic miniatures kit

For the strength, Injection molding is generally stronger then 3D printed material. Unless the miniatures are made of Polypropylene. And for feel, they won't feel the same. Couple things to check out that may help. http://www.shapeways.com/materials/ . To get a handle on the materials properties, and http://www.shapeways.com/model/133452/shapeways_materials_sa mple_kit.html?gid=mg so you can have a variety of samples to see in your hand how they feel and look.
