Yet another addition to the Fantasy Props Kickstarter collection. These candle sticks are a perfect candidate for the conversation regarding, is there such thing as too much detail? These candle sticks although look great are incredibly tiny. While I do not think they will get use on my table due to literally being too light weight to not fall over during game play. Perhaps a future diorama could be of use. Also what a great experiment regarding the limitations of my ideal scatter terrain.
Like several others of this set, I attempted to print first on an FDM printer my Prusa mk3s and unhappy with the results moved to a resin printer. Overall for the tall candle holders I ended up printing each a total of 3 times and the short once twice. The tall candle holders commonly snapped when removing supports and I did not feel like it was sturdy enough to just glue back together.
Overall I calculated an estimated total print time of 8 hours and 35 minutes and a combined cost of $0.46, not bad for an experiment!
