Those look really nice! I'd never seen any pics of Shapeways stuff in smaller scales before. The detail is still quite apparent. Is it in FUD or WSF, or a mix?

Thanks! They are all FUD and the detail is incredible for their size. My paint job doesn't really do them justice. I've found the most important thing to do prep-wise is to clean off all the molding wax.

These are the first 3D miniatures I've painted and I'm learning with practice. Didn't do as good a cleaning job on the first couple of batches (Gleaves, Bagleys, Fubukis, Brooklyns). I think I finally got the hang of it on the last batch which included the Fletchers and Atlantas.

Looks great! Please share with us if you played some games at this scale. I haven't tried it yet with miniatures of this scale.

Will do once I get in a game or two. Unfortunately real life has intruded the last few weeks.
