Ive tried using this from the original creator. He passed it over for free and recommended places like shapeways, but the site says the files are too large. I just didn't want to pester the guy because it was free.

Great find! Thanks for posting.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

The baby-carrier is just too weird ^^, so I just found this quite convincing. Will have to hang an angry ork in there at some point though :D

This gentleman sent me the files for free ( they were so amazing I sent him money through PayPal). It can be done on Shapeways, but you have to change one of the settings when uploading the 3D files to inches rather than millimeters. It took several tries and it did not like the iron halo part. I had the parts printed in high res plastic, and it was over $100 dollars. So, if you have a friend with a 3D printer, you may want to let them do the work of printing it. I will tell you that the parts are AMAZING. I haven’t started the the conversion yet, but if you would like pics of the parts, I can post some tomorrow ( at work tonight).

Id really like to know what the difference actually is from the quality settings. But I've seen the built model already, was some guy on a miniwargaming video.

I got two of the kits printed, they look very good. The creator is a very nice person, so all praise be to him. I’ll certainly put some pictures up when I finish either of the GMNDK with the kit.
