This is a high quality miniature 3D printed by Speira Miniatures in Sweden.

You can paint it as any normal miniature, no need to wash it beforehand. It is delivered unpainted.

Usable for dioarama, wargaming or tabletop role-playing games, such as Dungeon and Dragons, Warhammer, Pathfinder and so on. Also great as decor in your home if you order the large scales. We can always transform any model into a bust if you like, please contact us.

Due to the inherit nature of 3D printing the miniatures might contain imperfections and could require additional cleanup where the support have been; use sand paper or green putty for example. Print layers will sometimes be visable.

3D resin is brittle, even if we use a mixture than makes it more flexible. However it cannot be compared with the normal plastic that is used for example Warhammer, Marx or Conte miniatures. Handle the 3D prints with care, a fall can break them. Glue info here.

    I must admit that I was never familiar with Speira model products before now. However, while researching French Napoleonic Fortress and Seacoast Artillery, I happily stumbled across the magnificent castings of the Canon de 16 Gribeauval produced by Speira. I ordered both the 16- and 24-pound guns at once. The items were shipped and arrived undamaged. The model is cast in gray resin and comes in four pieces. The parts represented are the Gun, the carriage, and two wheels. Apart from a minuscule amount of flash at the mouth of the gun barrel, the parts are exquisite in casting and detail. Bolt heads are reproduced perfectly and there is an excellent woodgrain effect in the carriage casting. The wheels are well-done but could stand a little "dressing up" to sharpen existing detail. I have long wanted to create some vignettes dealing with Emperor Napoleon's fortress guns. Speira has now made that very possible. They also offer a second mounting of the 24 Pounder Fortress Gun with the large wheel at the rear of its carriage. I will be placing an order for that piece, as well as a Mortier de 12 also offered by Speira. These pieces are fully compatible with the Historex figures I generally use in my modeling. However, Speira offers them in several scales. So, whether you are a wargamer or a modeler, please check out the Speira catalog online at https://speira.net/. They offer a wide range of wonderful figures in addition to these long-sought-after artillery pieces.
