Dragon Slayer Ornstein articulated figureby
Update 1: Added a looser variant of the peg_2, hopefully this one will make it easier to assemble the figure.

New articulated figure, this time its Ornstein from Dark Souls!
This figure uses the actual game model, downloaded from The Models Resources, most of the geometry is preserved with minor modifications. The only thing I didn't do was the chainmail cloth so to not limit his mobility.
To simplify the assembly as much as possible, there are only two main type of pegs used all throughout, with only a few specialized ones for some joints. Pegs and joints should be printed flat on the bed for better strength whenever possible, and I have tappered most of the pieces to give them some kind of flat surface for this. Pegs can be squished with pliers for easier plugging, causing some small deformation to them should not be a problem.
To piece together the figure, you will have to read the item description included in every stl file... nah jk, I'll soon include an infograph with instructions, altough it is fairly straightforward. All pieces are of the left side of the figure, and you will have to duplicate and mirror them in your slicer of choice. I will also provide some files with multiple pieces. For the most part, glue is not necessary and the pegs should be strong enough to hold everything together.
Everything fits a standard 200x200 bed, however the stand pole is too tall and I split it in two pieces, this one could be glued together, but I also have a single-piece version of it if you have a bigger bed.
Each piece is labeled with the recommended filament color in their file name, if no color is indicated, use whatever you want as the piece will not be visible. Most of the figure was made in gold and black.
This fella is 18" tall, with the lance going up to 23". Total printing time was around 150hs not counting prototyping and testing.
Update 1: Ive added an articulated stand for better posability.
