Weapon miniatures for the rack (part 1) – Small village setting

Weapon miniatures for the rack (part 1) – Small village setting

Finished with the ceremonial part of the temple, let’s switch to the tower used by the soldiers. The first thing I show is some weapons and, as the ceremonial objects, this section will be divided in 2 different articles.

The pitchfork

The pitchfork is not a real weapon, but is the model I started with. When I did the ceremonial objects, this section will be divided in 2 different articles.
introduction-miniature-stable-3d-printed” target=”_blank”>stable, I wanted to add some tool. This mean that I had to 3D print alone every piece, so to avoid every possible problem I made them as simple as possible, with stocky and flat parts, to make the adhere perfectly to the printer bed. Unfortunately I made only the pitchfork and never made other tools, due to other works, but I used it when I started this series of weapon.

The 3D model

Since is a very small model, the best way to 3D print it is laying down, without brim or supports.
For the handle I used an 8-face cylinder, while for the fork I use cubes. In particular, for every spike I approached the vertex between them.

The 3D print

I used layer 0.1mm high and low 3D printing speed, about 20-25mm/s, to assure a good adhesion to the printer bed.

Painting

To paint the pitchfork I used the brown paint for the handle and Runefang steel for the forks.

Here the finished miniature:
