Howdy, I'm Plunk and I'm looking for a 3D modeler for an interesting challenge.
I am developing a boardgame on Kickstarter, it's met its funding goal and now I'm considering stretch goals, one which would be cool would be to have a plastic miniature of the main monster to use as a game piece.
I expect this to be a small range game, maybe 300 copies in the first production round, and I was thinking that it would not be quick and cost effective enough to have an actual sculptor make a miniature and then cast it in plastic molds.
So instead, I am considering looking for an paying a 3D sculptor to develop the model, and then send it to Shapeways to get it printed. I know very little of 3D sculpting, so I am hoping someone on Polycount can enlighten me.
I'd assume that designing a 3D model to be physically printed would need to be a bit exaggerated / caricature, and for bits and pieces to be solidly connected to the body.
It's a board game themed as a slasher horror movie, the figure would be a menacing psychopath in a crow costume
