When the trees begin to blossom, and nature starts to awaken from the long winter days, it is great to look back at February trends in 3D printing community. The last winter month of the leap year turned many talented minds towards video game models to 3D print, paint and share in Gambody group on Facebook. Men and women crafted many remarkable characters and robots from popular StarCraft, World of Warcraft, Witcher and MechWarrior Online games.
The lifeforms of Zerus have become an integral part of the fantasy world of StarCraft games. The Zerus gave birth to the Zerg, and 3D printed zergs look stunning even if they scare you.

A true artist always finds a way to complete a project of which he would be proud. Gambody 3D printing enthusiasts are real artists.

At the end of September, David Emanuel posted images of his finished StarCraft 2 Terran Marine figure, which looks fantastic with real lights and the most exquisite details.
