Okay Nerf Herders and Doom Callers, I received the first half of my order from Scott today. I am super happy with the result and want more. I fronted the cost for a few STL files ($3 is stupidly cheap) and will do it again. Please use Scott for your 3D printing needs. 

 

I second this.
Had Scotty print some monsters a few weeks ago. Came out looking great!

Don't know where to look for 3D models?

Best for free files, you get what you pay for but hidden gems

My go to for nice models

Another good one

This site is ok, but harder to search, many of the models aren’t right for 3d printing and are meant as video game assets.  If you look here filter by stl file types

Is resin generally considered the best medium for these prints? I was planning to use hero forge stl files if that works. 

Yes.  Filament (FDM) printing doesn't do a good job capturing the small detail required on minis.  I do both filament and resin.  FDM is great for structural prints and has excellent strength.  Resin is very similar traditional cast resin, it can be delicate where the parts are fine.  We could always just do one mini so can see if you like the quality.

I quote rather have a set price because it's the labor to prep the files that takes time.  If STL files are unsupported, I have to create the supports and verify it works. If the files are presupported I still have to verify they are appropriate. I'm finishing up a commission and I discovered the presupported files were not only inadequate and were giving me a near total print failure rate, but they were inappropriately placed so as to interfere with detail and left visible connection scars.

 

Just PM me and we can work out the details.
