Yet another one of the Fat Dragon Games miniature collections! I’m slowly making my way through this kickstarter and getting posts done. This collection is spiders. Having already had a previous spider version in their miniature collection the rearing option for the spider is new. Overall the model is decent but I am not the happiest with how the legs go into the sockets for the large rearing spider. It took some shaving with my exacto knife to make it fit more cleanly. Also the second spider swarm (more spiders on the base). Felt sloppy to me. Almost all of my prints have come up cleanly but this almost looks like a failed print to me. I am interested to see how these guys will turn out when I paint them.

File NamePrint TimeEstimated Material UsedMisc Notes
Giant_Spider Rearing A3 hr 9 min8gPrint came out well. Underside of legs were great. Nice detail on legs. There is also a thickened leg version but I did not print that and went with the skinny one.
Giant Spider Rearing B22min1gdecent detail but did not get the same level of detail as the main model. Also are the legs for the thickened version? Did not go into A very well.
Giant Spider Rearing C22 min1gPretty much same statement as above. Could not tell the difference in the legs when I assembled them. Wish there was some call out.
Swarm 137 min1gMy favorite of the two swarms. It came out nicely and looks great.
Swarm 236 min1gLike mentioned above. This is probably my least favorite print in the entire Fat Dragon Games collection. It looks like a messed up print. I think too many things are trying to happen in a very very little layer height. I’d definitely print more swarm 1 over swarm 2
