    Creation Of Isandhlwana Wargame, Including Figures, Tents, Wagons, Terrain, Etc

    It is difficult to find a one-stop source for acquiring affordable sets for to wargame Isandhlwana in 54mm scale, and knowing about 3D printing, wondered if it was possible to create fairly large quantities of all figures and accessories needed on a 3D printer ? I'm unsure to what extent this system is or has been used to create fully-developed wargames, and if there is a company that can custom design and print all these figures and items for developing a new Isandhlwana wargame set suitable for all.

    I apologise if this is not the forum to ask, but as a complete novice with an idea, was compelled to ask those who might know

    This is just an enquiry, but require some sort of references to build upon, for what may be a completely new idea

    Thanks

    3d printing can certainly be used to produce figures and accessories for a game. Depending on how many you were looking to make it might be cheaper to explore other options. Even if you 3d printed one object and made a mould of it to cast several from resin. Injection moulding is used for large scale manufacture, its expensive to make the injection mould but once made far less cheaper to mass produce.

      Print patterns with location artefacts and runners, apply mould release and make Silicone RTV moulds, resin cast your parts.
