Product Description

Custom-designed shoulderpads for use with model soldiers, used for tabletop wargaming. These shoulderpads are compatible with popular wargames miniatures as represented by the pictures. They are 6mm tall and are designed to fit figures that are 3-4cm tall.

I have tested several materials and found that white detail offers the best finish, and is suitable for painting. I have not tested them in frosted detail, but that is also available. The images above show the printed item mounted on a plinth of blue-tack (plasticine is fine) which makes it easier to paint. I used citadel miniatures paints and began with a 50% black-wash base coat, using a large-detail brush. I then applied a dark green colour with highlights, and applied a green glaze. The ridges were then painted chainmail silver mixed with black, and highlighted with a lighter silver and lowlighted with a touch of yellow glaze.

They might arrive with a thin wax gel coating from the printing process, which can be easily removed - first scrape away the excess with a match or cocktail stick, then rub them down with your fingers in water at room temperature. Additional help on this topic can be found in Shapeways post-production forums.

Please note that shapeways has a minimum order of $25.00, so you will need to order more than one, or perhaps add something else from my shop?

I would love to see photos of your army wearing these shoulderpads, so once they arrive please do post some photos in our forum!
