[EDIT 8/26/2017: I recommend the remix of my plinth :
so you can print it out without supports. Cleaning up the supports is a pain when printing out my original design.]
I saw a cool plinth on a Frostgrave wargaming thread: http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=87575.0
I thought it looked really cool and just had to have it. So I sketched up something that looks similar to it in Sketchup and finished off in Blender.
It's currently scaled for my statues which are large and have a base of 1 1/2". Please scale down appropriately (or up) for your figurine. If you want this plinth to work for a 1 inch base (25mm), then try printing at about 67 percent.
The sketchup file, blender file and the STL are all included. Enjoy! Feel free to re-mix.
Unless you slice off the top disk and print in two pieces, print with supports.
Link to some notes on how I designed the cylindrical part of this plinth in sketchup:
For stone statue plinth: Base coat with 2 or 3 coats of a warm black or very dark brown. Let dry thoroughly -- I do this under a box fan supported by 4 soup cans (away from water).
Take a warm medium to light gray and load up a flat tipped broad (preferbly round) brush and brush out most of the paint on a paper towel or paper. Stipple (light stabbing perpendicular motion) on the paper to see a dotted pattern -- if it is a solid circle keep stippling on the paper until dots. Once dots appear, then carefully stipple those dots onto the dark base coat -- this should give you a nice stone effect. Repeat if necessary, scattering it all around well and even. If it is overdone just let it dry and rebase with black/dark brown and redo it.
