Expanding the 3D Print Service

New tech and geek-toys are always great, and there can be no bigger geek-toy than a 3D printer. So it is exiting news today, that we are expanding our 3D Printing service at Zealot with no less that 3 more new 3D printers for ultra resolution prototyping. We were previously just offering wax DOD printing, but we found the wax to be too fragile for some prints, or the high operating cost meant some clients were put off. Now we also have DLP resin printing in 3 different grades.  (colour coded; red, yellow and orange – hot colours, since the prints are damn hot-detail 😉 ) With Z layers down to a possible 1 micron and XY resolutions down to 25 microns, you get some of the most detailed prints available, for a great value price. (Model Printed and Cast for Icarus Miniatures) We position support manually, so that models can be built with the least amount of supports possible. And most contact points are around 100 microns. (Model Printed for Zealot Miniatures Ltd) We can also print in heat resistant materials for direct to organic rubber (metal casting) moulds such as Envisiontec RC90. So if you are a company or individual who needs quality miniature 3d printing for a great price, drop us an email to talk about your requirements. “Jolly good prints from Britain, old Chap!”      (Model Printed and Cast for Fossil Punk... read more

TC Dungeon Doors General Release – How, Where, Why, When?

If you are actively following us on Facebook or get the updates from the Kickstarter whizzing into your inbox each month, then you will no doubt be aware that we are midway through fulfillment and dispatching our first and madly successful Kickstarter. I’m pleased to say we are nudging 50% done, and as the process has sped up a LOT since the beginning; the second half of dispatch is due to be much faster than the first too! In true Kickstarter fashion, unfortunately the dispatch has taken much longer than predicted (lots of freebies for all the backers 😛 ) which, is the only real drawback of this project: The sculpts have been fantastically received, the positive feedback on the quality has been overwhelming and we haven’t had a single negative review from a fulfilled backer! (a few minor mis-packs or pieces damaged in the post is the worst it gets! astounding success) But what we can all agree on is that FASTER KS dispatch would be nice! So one of our methods to speed things up and dispatch the KS backers faster, is to take the pressure off Bill and Andy, who are casting in-house here. This involves outsourcing casting of the Doors, the simple pieces which would actually be suitable for a more mass-manufacture scale of production. We spent ages consulting with companies and buying sample casts, until we have now got ourselves some great partners who produce quality castings that (dare i say it?) rival our own. Now the only problem is that the KS funds didn’t stretch to changing to outsourced production :/ we hadn’t... read more

New Website Launched

  Welcome to the new Zealot Miniatures Website. After 5 years of business, a fresh website and a new look for the company is another of the long string of changes we are undergoing recently at Zealot. A big thank you to Pixellant (www.pixellant.com) for creating the site and for the patience while we organised the graphics and materials for it.
