    Owner, Customer Service, Maker

    Hello! Welcome to my Etsy shop! I run this as a side business/hobby to my full-time job as a hospital pharmacist. I enjoy tons of miniature and board games, and love sharing the wonders of 3D printing with others. Current Favorites: SW Legion and MCP

    Danielle is my amazing girlfriend, and she does a wonderful job supporting the store. She helps me prepare all the orders for shipping, and keeps me sane when things get crazy! She also happens to be the better pharmacist between the two of us.

Frequently asked questions
USA Shipping

Our fulfillment time averages for domestic orders is less than 3 business days for all standard sized minis. Dark Fire Designs standard sized models often ship as soon as next day. Resin printed ships and large models fall within the range on the listing, not usually before due to the printing and processing time required for these models.

I ship orders in bubble wrapping and high density cardboard boxes, and have had very few issues with miniatures arriving damaged.

If something arrives broken, I will replace it for free, as quickly as I can get the new miniature(s) printed, if you contact me via message. We appreciate it if you would contact us prior to leaving a negative review, as we have no control over USPS.

International Sales/Shipping

I will ship to your country as long as it's on USPS's list of priority mail countries, with the exceptions of China, Russia, and North Korea. Most international shipping is very expensive, and has taken 45-90 days due to COVID.

If your country is not showing as available, please let me know so I can enable it.

Please note: All orders have tracking, but I will not be responsible for lost international packages, due to the high expense of international shipping. If your international package is lost or damage, I will work with you for a highly reduced cost replacement. I do recommend the insured shipping options I offer a checkout.

How Will My Miniature Come?

All miniatures have supports removed before shipping. For most miniatures, very little work needs to be done to be painting ready. I recommend looking over the model before priming/painting to check for any support remnants, so they can be removed or filed down. Some models may require assembly upon arrival ( I try to note this in the listing, but don't always remember). All bases ship unattached for safety of model and for easy of hobby work.

For most characters with lightsabers, these will come unattached to the model, to ensure they are not broken during shipping. For models that are designed with the blade attached, I do my best to ensure minimal bending or break risk.

Etsy Ads

Due to our shop's success, Etsy is forcing us to participate in their advertising program. Any order placed from someone clicking on an ad incurs an Etsy advertising fee of 20% of the total order.

We do our best to keep our prices low, especially for the quality that we produce. Etsy's increased fees with advertisements will force us to increase prices if many orders are placed via ad clicks.

If you found your way here via an Etsy ad, please consider clearing your cart and browser cookies, and re-finding us via the search bar. Etsy uses tracking cookies to determine who bought items via an ad click.

Any large item (printed ships) or large quantity orders placed via ads will be canceled.

Care instructions

My resin products are all washed and UV cured prior to shipping, so they are safe to handle. These items are also safe to prime with traditional spray can paint or airbrush. Please note, on items with very small pieces, they may be delicate. Any white marks on a miniature may be where I removed supports and cleaned up any rough or bumpy edges. Any of these markings should be covered up by primer.

Sizing details

Please ask sizing questions before ordering! Scale can vary between sculptors and vary even more so between commercial miniature manufacturers.

If you are concerned that the miniature may not line up in size with others that you are using, please measure your miniature and send me how tall it is (in inches or centimeters).

My D&D minis are all in the range of 30-32mm, depending on the designer. My SW products are in Legion scale.

Resizing/Scale Change Requests

Resizing requests need to be arranged prior to ordering and will incur an extra fee. Resizing the models takes a significant amount of extra time; it often requires redoing supports on the models to print properly plus re-processing the files for the printer. We also have to keep them separate from our other orders, so nothing gets mixed up.

- Resizes by percentage will incur a $3 plus materials cost increase fee per mini ($10 per squad).
- Resizes to a certain mm height will incur a $5 plus materials cost increase fee per mini.
- Resizes looking up canonical heights of characters and doing math to determine correct heights in scale will incur a time-based fee at the rate of $20 an hour.

Painting Services

All my models come unpainted and unassembled by default, unless stated by the listing. I do offer enhanced support clean-up and priming via airbrush for an additional fee.

If you want a miniature printed by me to be painted professionally, I work with a long-time friend and professional painter - Jason Geisbrecht (ShamWowKilla on Instagram). He posts often in the Star Wars Legion Painting Facebook group, so you may have also seen his work there as well.

Tabletop quality paint jobs run the cost of the mini + $25. Special requests may incur additional cost.
