Been wanting to get some of the Exodus Wars Infantry on Shapeways. With 10% Off and free shipping I couldn't pass them up !!!! 8)

https://www.shapeways.com/product/PWJAM ... d=57995219

Went with FUD for both. So I'll let everyone know once I get them !

Got my EW Infantry from Shapeways. Pretty satisfied ... They look just like in the pics on Shapeways. Should paint up well.

First step with all resin cast models is to clean off the greasy mold releaser. It seems the best way is to soak in dish washing soap & hot water. Then lightly brush with soft old tooth brush. Anyone have an better input for FUD ? :sos

Good luck.
Hopefully not too grainy or brittle.
I have often been disappointed with shapeways items on receipt so sounds like you are off to a good start.

Thanks Lyle ! I'm finding they are a bit brittle but not too bad. I won't know how grainy they will be until I base coat them. So I'll just have to take my time and be a little careful. I probably would have liked them in metal better, but I'll work with what I got. I'll post some pics of the basic FUD models so all can see what they look like before I base coat them. In a day or two ... 8)

Forgot to tell you on your FB post: get yourself a sheet of 2000 grit sandpaper and clean up the edges where the striations are bad. Curved surfaces are notorious

Thanks again JZ ! But since they are Infantry I won't have to do that. Once I clean all of them I will base coat with Enamel ... And that should give me a better idea if there are any real "problems" ... Plus they are Infantry and can be a little fragile around the axles ... But so far, everything is "good" generally ...

I can tell you positively you should. I may have some knowledge of CAD infantry after all ;)

As promised ... pics of the raw Shapeways EW Infantry ... They are soaking to get off the greasy mold releaser, at this time ...

1) RE Cmd pack ...

2) RE Cbt Eng ... Love the RPG ...

Note: They are a little fragile around the ankles, adding to the "challenge" of painting ... But we'll see ... 8)
