About this Product

These miniatures are 500 2mm infantry models. Attach them to bases in the tight formation or cut up the sprue for skirmish units.

If you like historical miniature games reenacting large battles try out the 2mm scale. It's a great scale to build terrain and you can set up the battle with a one-to-one aspect where each model represent one soldier. Even with forces thousands men strong.

With ultra resolution 3D printing the 2mm scale models finally has a level of details far better than resin or pewter.

This model is still in beta version. I've made test prints that came out nice. But I want to try out different models and combinations.

Please leave any comments or questions below.

Dimensions

IN: 1.488 w x 1.811 d x 0.11 h

as tc27 mentioned , Republican Romans would also be amazing. If you changed the shields to an oval shape . I don't know if you would be able to do spears for the Triarii and Pila for the Hastati and Princeps or if they would not show in this scale ?

regarding chariots , well it obviously depends on what period you are wanting to depict , but I guess in this scale you could just do a 2 horse and 4 horse variant. that would cover almost anything from Trojan heroic wars up to heavy Persian chariots..:-)

ok thanks. these particular models have a a Greek look to them , perhaps if they had spears rather than swords they would really look like a Hoplite Phalanx...:-)

@Gabz . Hi. Glad you like them. I'm working on more models. Feel free to recommend variants. I've been looking at Chariots and artillery. Each base is 2 cm wide and are composed of five strips that can easilly be cut out. If you want 4x2 cm bases you just glue two of my bases on yours and you're good to go. I haven't added complete bases, that would add a lot of material that would double the cost of the models. This model is created for the material Frosted ultra detail. Check out my other models designed for White strong and flexible. They don't have the same great details but are more sturdy.

also maybe you could do command figures and perhaps camp followers etc ?

hi , I am new on here. this looks very interesting. can you produce them onto a base size of frontage 4cm , depth 2cm ? as is standard in a lot of wargames

@tc27 I've ordered test prints of all the models. I'll update the descriptions when I get them. It would be awesome to get your comments on the models. And if you try to paint or play with them.

@blackbitz nice work I have put an order in or some Republican Romans!

Thanks for the tips. I was planning to do different types of infantry. Haven't had the time yet though. One of these days... :) i'll let you know when.

Also add irregular shaped shields and a looser formation to represent tribal foot!

@blackbitz I would suggest working to a 20mm frontage which would allow compatibility with all the rulesets out there. I know in 3mm they are manging 10 figures per 20mm so that could be matched or bettered depending on how it turns out? I guess for a model range for heavy infantry you could go for this generic types that would allow any ancient army to be formed... 1.Spear and round should (Hoplites ETC) 2. Spear/javelin and square shield (Imperial Roman Legions and Persion spearmen) 3. Spear/javelin and oval shield (Reublican roman Roman Legions) 4. Pikes with round shield (Phalangites) I have tried to do my own but they arent a scatch on yours - I would be willing to help with ideas in any way I can and would be ordering some,

@tc27 I use Google sketchup. I've tried several version of the models. We'll see if I can post something. How many models would you like to see on a base or /cm.
May 25, 2013, 7:15 pm
What a great idea- I would be interested in seeing if you have refined this idea much. On suggestion I would make is for the sprue to be a multple of 1cm to ease basing. I am going to see what I can do - what software did you use?
