Here are 8 modern military silhouette miniatures for wargaming.
Designed for 15mm scale, so low on detail, but very quick to print if you need an extra proxy squad for the game that night!
Geeetech/Prusa i3 clone
0.15mm layer height
N/A, so small they should come out solid really
Print the troops at 120% scale, and the bases at 125% scale, and they will come out as per photos.
I also recommend turning first layer width to 100%
With these settings, they should pop right in to the slotta bases, and be sturdy without needing glue
How I Designed This
A friend pointed me to some silhouette "print & play" paper minis.
I used inkscape to turn the original silhouettes into SVG paths, then imported the svg files into FreeCAD, extruded, added connector tabs at the bottom, and made a base that fits the tabs.
Fit was far too tight (it wouldn't connect at all at first), so I recommend printing the bases at 5% larger scale than the miniatures, which gives the tolerance to squeeze in properly.
