A whole new spectrum of possibilities…
Using unparalleled new color customization tools and the newest, cutting-edge 3D printing technology, Hero Forge is excited to bring you full-color custom tabletop miniatures! Even the most prolific painters can find themselves overrun with hordes of unpainted figures, but no longer! Join us in our quest to cure the plague of monochrome minis; with your support, we will offer our most customizable tabletop miniatures yet! Pledge today to get early access to the new color tools. Be among the first to order custom, full-color figures of your own design, printed with cutting-edge full-color 3D printing technology or hand-painted by our favorite mini painters!
Hero Forge 2.0 Color Tools enable you to bring color to your tabletop, no matter how you play. We are eager to support tabletop gamers of all kinds, whether you play in person or online. Here’s how Hero Forge 2.0 Color Tools can help you… Never picked up a brush in your life? High-detail, vibrant color prints will capture your creativity better than ever before–no art skills required. If you prefer the more traditional route, check out our backer tiers that offer professionally hand-painted options where artists replicate your color design by hand, the old fashioned way.
Are you a painter?
Use deep “digital paint” tools to plan your color schemes and see them applied to your model in real-time. Experiment with color theory, easily try out different schemes, or work with clients to ensure you have the right design before you even put brush to model.
We have been developing exciting new tools to fully utilize the most revolutionary 3D printing technology and hardware. It is a big job, but who better to do it than the makers of the original 3D printed custom miniatures?
High-Quality Web-Based Rendering
Whether you want to fully paint your design with a couple of clicks or hand-tune unique digital ‚paints‘ to capture your character’s aesthetic perfectly, we have you covered.
We wanted users to be able to do more than apply flat colors, so we looked to traditional, real-world painting techniques to inform our designs. Our rendering and UI has re-imagined classic techniques for the digital world. Replicate the beautiful subtlety of dry brushing, ink-washing’s ability to add depth, and much more. Printed designs will include subtle shading and lighting within the color texture, making details pop and adding fantastic realism to your design.
By giving you the option to hand-tune highlights, low-lights, shininess, hue shift and more, we will give you unparalleled design tools and let you see a whole new spectrum of possibilities.
Cutting Edge Manufacturing Technology
3D printing has evolved at incredible speeds, with new technologies emerging all the time. We’re happy to say that this thrilling new print technology means that highly detailed, color printed tabletop minis are finally possible!
Color is produced by mixing a range of color materials on the fly, allowing for full, vivid CMYK prints with beautiful gradients and detail. This technology employs dissolvable support materials, removing the need for support sprues and allowing for smoother, more consistent surfaces than ever before.
This plastic is similar in durability to our premium plastic material. Faint layer lines may be visible on the surface of the figures, especially in strong direct light.
One-Click Color Schemes
No need to have an art degree or knowledge of color theory to have fun coloring your character. You will be able to quickly paint your character in seconds, using a wide range of artist-designed color motif presets so you can “try on” a wide range of color schemes or use them as a jumping-off point for your own design.
A Multitude of Digital Paint Options
We’ll offer a library of artist-tuned paint options for a wide range of materials. Experience the coloring-book joy of turning a character from grayscale to full, rich color quickly and easily!
We’ll also offer the ability to „mix your own paint.“ Customize more than just the color: adjust shininess, highlight, mid-light, and low-light tones, and more. Your hand-crafted digital ‚paints‘ will be saved with your character, allowing you to revisit and tweak them to your heart’s content.
Der Kickstarter hat sein Ziel schon mehr als eindeutig erreicht und überschritten. Die Kampagne läuft noch 29 Tage.
