Mage Craft Miniatures are a Flordia based business with a site of their own and an Etsy store.
Custom-designed models for tabletop RPGs are on offer, and I think they’ll blow your players’ minds. I think that will happen in two ways. There’s the “Oh shit!” moment of a truly fearsome big bad and the “Oh wow!” of sheer spectacle.
This D&D Tarrasque is a great example! It’s not even the largest of Mage Craft’s so-called miniatures, but it’s big, scary and terrific in infamy.
Right now, this beast would cost me £60.38, a sale price, plus shipping which I expect would be almost as much.
It’s not uncommon to find great looking D&D miniatures or tabletop miniatures in general on Etsy, especially not 3D printed ones as Mage Craft Miniatures offers.
Sometimes these shops have bought patterns and are merely acting as the printer. You may also find model makers with their own exclusive designs.
Mage Craft goes one step further. You can have them hand-paint the models you buy from. It’s not a free option, as you’d expect, and it must take hours and hours to paint these models up. The results, as seen in these photographs, are stunning.
Initially designed by the Lord of the Print, this particular model is 4 inches tall, 4 inches wide, and 6.5 inches tall. That might be a bit smaller than the pictures trick the mind into believing but might also be more appropriate for the scale of your game.
It’s also printed in one piece, and Mage Craft swears they think carefully about the packing. The result is that it may be good to go out of the box.
If you buy from Etsy, you have got the extra benefits the platform offers, such as carbon reduction, but Mage Craft offers a pay-by-instalment option from their own site.
