Copying existing miniatures - Laws, licences and legality

Article updated: 2020.10.28

When you decide to use the designs others made to create a miniature (be it a recast miniature, 3d printed model, papercraft), there are several legal points you have to consider: copyright, design protection, trademark, derivative work rights.

Summary

When someone creates a miniature, they have the copyright to the mini, that is, the right to create copies of it. Creating copies without the permission of the copyright owner is illegal.

If a sculptor wants to copy the designs of an existing intellectual property (IP), they need the IP holder's permission to do that. The way you create this copy (recast miniature, 3D printed miniature, papercraft miniature) doesn't matter in this regard. Copying the original designs without the licence is illegal. The law protects every design for a number of years. After it has passed, you can use the design to sculpt or print your own model, but you still can't make physical copies of the originals.

I've seen several opinions and question on the internet about the legalities of copying miniatures, so I've collected some of them.

Painting light effects: Object Source Lighting (OSL) - Miniature painting guidePainting light effects: Object Source Lighting (OSL) - Miniature painting guide for OSL painting

Article updated: 2020.10.28

This is a quick tutorial on how to paint OSL, that is creating light effects from object source lighting (OSL). OSL painting can be achieved by drybrushing, glazing or using an airbrush.

When light shines on an area, if that light is stronger than the surrounding light, the colour area will become lighter, and unless the light is white, it will also change colour. This is how you paint the glow effect on miniatures.

There are a couple of different ways to achieve the object source lighting (osl) effect, I try to explain them in the article.
