Practice painting textures with these texture swatches. Each one is themed after a particular character, featuring the most prominent textures that appear on that model so that you can practice your technique before applying paint to the actual model.

Any physical model that has a corresponding texture swatch will have the option to bundle one with the model. However, if you'd like extra ones you can pick what you'd like in a 5 swatch bundle.

Quality

We print figures at 30 micron layer heights (0.03mm) and bases at 50 microns (0.05mm) using Ameralabs AMD3 Black resin. After sampling dozens of resins Ameralabs AMD3 Black has proven time and time again to be the highest of quality with the most reliable and repeatable results. Please bear in mind, due to the hardness of the resin that helps to capture the tiniest of details the resin can be quite brittle, so please handle with care.

Note

The model you receive will have been 3D printed. In order for a model to be 3D printed it has to be hollow to allow for proper cleaning and curing. Vent holes are placed in areas that are not on show to facilitate this. In some rare instances there may be a hole in a visible area and will need filling. All models require supports in order to print correctly. While all parts should fit without issue, you may find it necessary to undertake minor sanding, gap filling, cleanup and priming yourself.

You may notice some staining on your printed parts. This is, in part, due to using black resin and is a side effect of using IPA for the cleaning process. This staining is present on all 3D printed parts but less noticeable on grey or lighter coloured resin. Rest assured that this staining will not effect surface quality and will cover perfectly fine with primer.

Most kits are straight forward and easy to assemble using common sense and the imagery. Should directions be necessary you will find an insert in the package with information.
