About DatamancerGames

Sales 3,988
On Etsy since 2019

Passion turned business

Datamancer Games was founded in 2018 to share Daniel’s passion for miniature painting with the world. Initially started as a platform to share pictures of his work and artistic progress in miniature painting, his passion has led to commissioned work painting miniatures for some of the most popular tabletop games on the market. A selection of his past painting work can be found on the portfolio page of our official website.

As Daniel delved further into playing, and painting figurines for, tabletop war games he recognized a lack of quality terrain on the market. Armed with his fleet of 3D printers and mini painter’s eye for detail, he began printing and selling terrain for these games. He also has begun painting these pieces of terrain, providing sumptuous backgrounds for event the bloodiest Warhammer and Infnity battles.

Daniel asked his fiance Katie to join Datamancer Games in mid-2019 to allow Daniel more time to focus on production of the terrain and miniatures. Katie handles the day-to-day customer service, shipping, photography, and marketing for the business - as well as joining in on painting for special orders. Daniel and Katie live in Savannah, GA with their fur-baby Finn (the shop dog / destroyer of boxes).

Frequently asked questions
3-D PLA Print FAQs

- All our terrain pieces are printed in PLA, unless otherwise specified
- They don't need to be washed before painting, but we do recommend the use of a plastic-safe primer (rattle can or otherwise) to make sure the paint stays put. We've used both army painter and krylon with good success (personal opinion, not sponsored!).
- Since the pieces are 3-D printed there may be some minor imperfections in the rounding of a piece / "threads" of PLA - these can be carefully clipped off or can be filled with a filler primer.
- We do not recommend pulling the PLA threads as it can break the models!!!
- The models are fairly sturdy, but will not survive being stepped on, dropped large distances, or otherwise abused. Please treat them well.

Custom and personalized orders

- We can print personal files for our customers, send us a note for more information
- We don't do commissioned paint or 3d modeling work. We have several excellent commission painters and digital sculptors we can recommend if you are interested in getting something fully customized.
- By contract, we cannot (and will not) modify models created by our licensed creators (list not fully inclusive): EC3D, Dragon's Rest, RM Printable Terrain, Artisan Guild, Cast N Play, Hex 3D, Titan Forge, or Bella Nacht.
- Some minor tweaks are allowed on our models, such as swapping parts designed to be modular or mirroring - message us for more details. Please note customization may impact the ability to exchange your items!

Resin Print FAQs

- Our resin prints are made with UV-cured photopolymer resin
- Our resin pieces do not need to be washed before painting but, if you see any sticky or white residue it can be removed with high purity rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol / IPA)
- We recommend the use of a plastic-safe primer (rattle can or otherwise) to make sure the paint stays put if you paint your minis.
- You may see some bumps on the model, these are from the supports needed to print the model. These can be gently removed with fine-grit sandpaper or filing
- Superglue works well for gluing models together. Plastic glue does not work well for these models! Accelerant is ok to use.
- These models are more brittle than our PLA printed models, please handle them with care!

Returns and Exchanges

- We do not accept returns, but we will do everything possible to make sure you get what you want - please send us a message if your item does not meet your expectations!
- We WILL accept exchanges of any non-custom items

Shipping

- When possible, we refund any overages of shipping charges (international customers especially). Typically this happens within 5 business days of shipping the order.

- Typical package shipment is that USPS transports the package to Miami FL or Jamaica NY for customs processing, then the package is passed to your international carrier. US based progress can be viewed by entering your tracking number here: https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfirmAction_input
