rnestudio33D printing is a technology that allows artists’ creativity to shine through in ways never seen before. It allows designers to create their own 3D models from scratch and then turn them into tangible objects. I personally have a thing for action figures and miniatures. The more obscure and unique, the better.

rnestudio4For one company, RN estudio, creating miniatures is not only a hobby, but a profession as well. And those miniatures are nothing like anything you have probably seen before.

“We create miniatures for our brand,” Rafael Navajas, Director Creativo for RN estudio, tells 3DPrint.com. “We have 2 lines, the Master Series and Fantasy Football. We work for the best miniatures companies, doing miniatures for 3D printing.”

For the two lines of miniatures which utilize 3D printing technology, Navajas tells us that his team uses ZBrush to created virtual 3D sculptures of their characters. Then these are 3D printed on their Envisiontec 3D printers before finally being cast in HD resin. Once the cast is complete, the models may be painted using an airbrush and/or more conventional painting methods.

Fantasy Football Miniatures

The Fantasy Football miniatures are not what you would traditionally think of as being “fantasy football.” Instead they are fanciful characters that happen to also be football players or cheerleaders. The creativity that went into the intricate designs of each of these is magnificent. They include characters with names such as Jerjes, Agamenon, Akrisio, and Tanatos. They can be purchased either unpainted or fully painted, and all 16 miniatures in the series may be purchased for just 100 Euros (unpainted). Check out some of the videos depicting these characters below.

Master Series Miniatures

 The Master Series currently features two female characters by the names of Ligeia and Troy. Ligeia depicts a young woman with tentacles, perhaps half woman, half squid, or simply captured in the tentacles. The 70mm tall miniature can be purchased unpainted for 25 EUR or completely painted for 150 EUR.

The Troy miniature is also 70mm tall and features an attractive woman dressed in red, white and gold — at least those are the suggested colors. It’s also priced at 25 EUR unpainted and can be had for 125 EUR completely painted.

This is one more example showing what is possible when you take talented designers and combine them with quality 3D printing technology like that provided by Envisiontec machines. What do you think about these unique miniatures from this Málaga, Spain-based company? Discuss in the RN estudio miniature forum thread on 3DPB.com. Check out some more photos/videos below.
