London, 9 August 2016 – Gambody’s online workshop on printed and painted 3D figurines expands its range every week. This week is about TAU XV109 Y’Vahra 3D figurine, from the renowned video game Warhammer 40k.

Y’Vahra is a battlesuit worn in the video game by a single warrior. It is used to combat and to send the enemy in retreat. Its two arms display powerful weapons that are capable of raining a shower of firepower, defeating all combatants and machinery.

TAU Y’Vahra STL file had been published on our marketplace early this year. The battlesuit is highly appreciated in the video game world. So, it’s no surprise that TAU Y’Vahra 3D printing design has garnered the popular label on our marketplace fast.

The 3D model is available for download in a single file. The entire design process took about 2 weeks, due to the model’s rich surface detailing and small elements of the battlesuit. The modeler had to make sure that even the smallest part of the 3D model is printable and no error occurs during the process.
