3D Printable Terrain Kickstarters – November 2017
One of the great things about our 3D printers, is the 3D terrain we can create. This is one of the primary reasons I purchased a 3D printer. Without high-quality files with which to print, the printers are kind of useless. I’m going to be listing Kickstarters by the time left in their campaigns. If I missed any, please let me know. You can find these companies and more in our 3D Terrain directory. Finally, if you are looking at getting into printing terrain, check out this guide on getting your first 3D Printer.

This Kickstarter has 4 days to go. HexT is a 3D Printable Hex based board system. It includes a several terrain types like hills, grasslands, water ways and more. It is easily expandable and can be printed as is, or with a 1″ Hex Grid embossed on it. Since I play Battletech a bit, that is what came to mind first in seeing this.
This Kickstarter has 9 days to go. This Kickstarter is huge, over 500 objects huge. The flying ship is one of the coolest models I have seen for a while. He’s also allowing us to print and sell the pieces to others so those without 3D Printers can get these. (Though, I am proponent of sending authors tips if you sell their goods). Check this massive Kickstarter out.
This Kickstarter has 13 days to go. This is an OpenLOCK compatible tile set based on an Egyptian theme. This looks to be an extensive Kickstarter featuring not only the tiles but a number of other terrain as well. This will help you build out a desert theme in your RPG.
This Kickstarter has 16 days to go. This one is a bit different. This is a complete game in one package. It is the rules, the terrain, and the miniatures all in one, and all printable. Mathieu Marchand has also teamed up with Printable Scenery to produce several terrain pieces that are included as part of the package. It has one of the higher funding goals and has a good number of unlocks along the way once they do fund.
This Kickstarter has 23 days to go. This Castle Project is all about creating a modular castle. There are two “sets” with this one. The basic/Classic set and a the Advanced set giving you a lot more new options. This is a 28mm castle. It’s already blown past its pledge goal.
This Kickstarter has 26 days to go. It is a complete game by Ill Gotten Games that features arena combat. It’s been an interesting month, with not just one, but two fully 3D printed games and rules coming up on Kickstarter. It has already funded and I am curious to see how it does overall. At the very least, the game sounds interesting to play.
This Kickstarter has 43 days to go. This is the latest Kickstarter from Hobgoblin 3D. At the base level, you get a tavern. Through different addons and upgrades you can end up with a fully outfitted tavern as well as a full hamlet. Finally, they are including some previous work as Add-Ons.
Kickstarters that have finished this month.
This Kickstarter has finished. This is Hayland Terrain’s 4th 3D printable terrain Kickstarter. It features tiles and terrain that is fitting for a post-apocalyptic setting, or other heavy industrial setting. By default, there are 3 themes: Two styles of buildings and a General Store. There are also a few cars and stacks of tires to use as scatter terrain. There are stretch goals for additional locations and add-ons that include files from his previous kickstarters.
This Kickstarter has finished. This kickstarter is a Sci-Fi focused terrain set that includes many tiles and walls for creating an interior Sci-Fi building. There are some stretch goals that include some nice looking terrain as well for a board. This Kickstarter is OpenLOCK compatible.
This Kickstarter has finished. Here is another interesting Kickstarter that allows you to add a fog machine to your gaming board. You have to purchase the hardware and the Kickstarter gives you the STL files for all of the parts needed to put it together.
This Kickstarter has finished. This one, as the title says, features 28mm Sci-Fi terrain. It features a number of buildings and other terrain that can be printed to create a pretty extensive gaming table. He’s done other Kickstarters before, and this is the 3rd one. Two things set this terrain set apart. One, is it’s simplicity. The buildings are fairly simple, and that in my eyes is a good thing. Fewer problems printing, and they look very clean. They remind of me of a pre-fab colony building set. And, it is relatively inexpensive at the highest tier being $25, compared to many recent Kickstarters.
This Kickstarter has finished. This is a miniatures focused Kickstarter featuring a number of tanks from history as well as Sci-Fi. Unlike the “Miniatures” other Kickstarters go for, these are tank “Kits”. You get all the parts to print and build a larger sized tank. Have a look at the Kickstarter to see a number of these kits professionally painted, to see how the finished product can look.
This Kickstarter has finished. This Kickstarter features water scenery that fits right into your fantasy wargame or RPG. I’d also think these would work well in modern sewers as well. This is one of the nicer organic collections I have seen, and think they would look great on a table.
This Kickstarter has finished. With terrain coming from the mind of Duncan ‘shadow’ Louca, this terrain looks like floating land masses. There are a number of different buildings as well with some actually pretty cool pieces.
What if I don’t have a 3D Printer for this Kickstarter terrain?
For those of you in this boat, I created a guide on how to get prints done if you don’t own one, plus a selection of printers that would be great for this kind of work.
