3D Printed Axis and Allies Board Game Pieces Available


  • I’m curious about how the models take to hobby files, pin vice and drill, and mechanical drill bits. Also be nice to see some painted models along with mention of how the models were painted.

    The last because if you’re doing brushes, sometimes brushwork fills in details of the model with paint, especially if you’re going for multiple coats. So if you’re painting on wee complex flags that could be tricky.

    I’ve used files and drill bits on other 3D printed models I’ve done without issues, but not these (though they are in the same plastic material so it would work just as well). I have not (yet) painted any of the 3d printed AAA models myself (just my 32mm scale D&D models).

    Multiple coats of paint on models this size are doable, but you absolutely need to ensure you’ve thinned your paints properly (water doesn’t cut it in my opinion … you need a ‘medium’ (I use liquitex matte medium myself) to maintain the pigment count). I’ve rarely had issues with fine details being filled in by painting on these kinds of pieces.

    Painting fine details is tough, but doable if you’ve got the patience, steady hand, good eyes/magnification and a fine enough brush.

    Hopefully someone has painted some and can put up a pic for us!

    Could we get a slightly scaled up version of the carrier? Like 10-15%.
    Need a sculpt for Super/Heavy (3 plane) Carrier.

    How about a sculpt to use for RADAR AAA?

    Upscaled versions of any of our existing models I can certainly do.

    Radar AAA, I can attempt, but don’t hold your breath (any new model takes a significant bit of time to create and test before we can print it).

    Sounds good. I’ll give you a chance to fill out your naval series. As I would prefer different Allied vs Axis sculpts for the Heavy carrier.

    For the RADAR AAA, maybe something like the M51 Skysweeper? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M51_Skysweeper
    When you have time.

    Looking through our stock and the ever growing list of pieces on offer, I’ve started remastering, resizing and updating everything this week.

    • “old” stock will be available until it’s sold out and then be replaced by “new” stock.
    • New stock will have a bit more size conformity with existing A&A pieces (light, medium, heavy, super-heavy tank length standards, naval standard lengths, etc) for easier on board recognition. Not a big change but some of the models felt a little ‘off’ on the game board.
    • New stock will see a slight price hike (price of filament has gone up significantly);
      • ca$0.60 per piece up from ca$0.50
      • ca$1.00 for super heavy tanks.

    A whole lot of new models are being added, including super heavy tanks (FCM-1, TOG2, A36 Tortoise, KV5) and more naval pieces.

    We have added the Print on Demand 12mm, 15mm and 28mm sizes for those who play AAA Minis and games like Flames of War (15mm) or Bolt Action (28mm).

    I think I’ll start a new thread and let this one fade once we’ve got our updates finalized.

    More great 3D Printed accessories (for both A&A and other board games) in the works every week!

    A few updates!

    • Much of the 3D Printed pieces stock switched over to remastered versions.
    • Most pieces moved to no stock management (ie: Unlimited stock, order as much as you want)
      • This may cause some delays in large orders, but we will continue to create new stock continuously to attempt to keep up, specifically with high demand items
    • Updated pricing (some larger pieces increased to ca$0.60 per piece due to increase in filament prices

    We’ve also found a much better material for the US Olive pieces. Stronger and more flexible with slightly better detail!
