Hi,

I'm looking for 1/72 scale modern civilians.
Preiser has what I need but I don't like the details.
Any suggestions?

Further to that Townsfolk set, you can see more of the Alex Miniatures range here:

https://www.alexminiatures.com/production

You might need to hit the link at the bottom to expand it to see more of them... the site is partly in Russian.

There's some street protester sets and some sets called Concrete Jungle, and one or two others you might find usable.

Wow, there's so much on the market these days it's almost impossible to find.
That's a great site. Thanks.
I also found tihsone with thousands of figures

I've bought 3-D printed figures from Shapeways in different scales and from different designers and am not too impressed. They all suffer from the same problem - because of the many angles and contours of figures, they always have noticeable printing strata somewhere on them, giving them a rough-appearing surface after priming. Can't beat old-time cast, or molded, figures!

This is a 1/72 3D printed figures (not shapeways) painted by Czech modeller Stepan Los

You can beat with 3D printing old time cast, I think. Figure was not modified, nothing added on except primer and paint

picture from his facebookpage at https://www.facebook.com/stepan.los.3, where you can find other nice figures in different scale, 3D printed or not

That's the exception to the rule. I believe Reedoak uses a much higher resolution printer than Shapeways. Cost per figure is also higher...but, you get what you pay for!
