    As far as I know, we don't have any kind of plan on selling STL's, sorry. We know there's some people interested on it, but it is not in our future plans.

    Speaking of the D20s, I'm afraid that no, we don't have plans to release a "generic" D20's set.

    (Damn, my message is NO! NO! >_> ).


    Have a nice day!

    Talking about metal... tin prices dropped considerably in the last few months, if that's worth anything.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Perhaps in time you’ll do stls… I’ll just have to hope until then! If they ever were done, I (and I assume a great number of other people) will definitely be interested.

    A shame about the D20s, I guess I’ll just have to rely on my trusty panoceania dice then! They’ve been rolling really well lately so they’ll have to fill out my tin along with the ITS dice I do have.

    Thanks again, hope you have a nice day too!

    @Koni
    Are able to specify whether you guys are testing / already planning to use / already using the new harder and more detailed version of Siocast recently presented by the company?

    Addressed a few pages back, from when Siores Hard was announced during Adepticon:

    That was in March though, I wonder if anything moved from "it's one of the options we're investigating".

    That's a shame, if we could be certain you guys are using the supposedly better material, there would be a lot more of customer confidence in buying Siocast models from CB. Let us know as soon as you can?

    Hi,
    I have now been using a few large and small models using the new Injected Thermoplastic.
    My experience is a mixed feeling so far.

    Positives:
    The material is light.
    The details are amazing.
    easy to cut

    Negatives:
    The material is too light.
    The bases arent very flat, especially the large ones
    It is really hard to clean small edges in none flat areas.
    It is very soft and bends too easily. (looking a you Marut swords)
    You still need to use super glue and activator.

    I haven't read the previous 59+ pages, and I am sure these points have already been noticed. As an end user, I think the move to thermoplastic is good, but alas it is not yet the right one. The building side of Corvus Belli (assembling) remains to this day the worst part of Infinity. The assembling experience using GW models and material is pure joy in comparison. Also, I should say that I barely buy GW models nowadays as I do not play their games anymore.

    There you go, this was my 2 cents on the new thermoplastic injection. Keep up the good work Covus Belli ;-)

    @Koni I swung by the Siocast booth at Gen Con today and they're developing a series of coloured, translucent resins, I could only think that they'd be great for hacking holos!

    1:49 Bostria said "a new metal miniature", but he sometimes makes mistakes, not sure. :sweat_smile:
