While I do 3D print miniatures for my Dungeons & Dragons tabletop games, I don't have enough artistic talents to sculpt those miniatures myself. As many people who print D&D miniatures, I mostly print the designs of Miguel Zavala aka mz4250, which are available for free on Shapeways. He has miniatures of everything in the monster manual, as well as specific collections for WotC published adventures. However lately I have participated in two Kickstarter projects for .stl files for 3D printing. One of them is called The Skyless Realms.
I really liked the models in this project. And Kickstarter projects without physical delivery are somewhat more likely to succeed. This one was no different, I got my files in time as promised. And the miniatures are really quite nice (see photos below). Now the designer obviously didn't have a license from WotC and wanted to avoid all copyright infringement claims. So it's called "The Skyless Realms", and not "The Underdark". And in no way is there any mention of the WotC campaign Rage of Demons with the Out of the Abyss adventure. It just so happens that the miniatures in this collection coincide exactly with the monsters in that adventure. :)
