After a few test, production began. Low temperature for PLA – about 182°, low print jerk – 5mm/s, low print speed – 15mm/s. Better result. Cavalry modelled and printed, then bowmen modelled. Quick paint of 96 infantry figures and 28 cavalry in less than 3 hours (undercoat, drying time and coffee time included).
A close view of a cavalry strip.
Bowmen units freshly printed….
… and fast painted, view front and back. Next step: basing.
Heavy cavalry made, horses and knight redesigned with more basic shapes. Arms and leg can now be visible.

… and a test for a more recent era, a firing line of musket. Not happy with the result.
