    Hey all, just wondering if you think sandstone or coated sandstone would be durable enough to print this top in.

    (Ignore the messed up color for now! Based off of these guys if you're wondering https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.ne...Kashira.png/revision/latest?cb=20130522183301).

    I don't want any of their beards to break off and lose the balance forever. Should I print much smaller in steel or do you think sandstone would hold up?

    sandstone won't hold up for long. solid WSF/HPJetFusion if you want good size and durability, you can make provision for metal inserts for more weight. Steel is good too.
