3D PRINTABLE TERRAIN & MINIATURE KICKSTARTERS – August 2018

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.  Click here for July’s Kickstarters.

Note: FINISHED Kickstarters are at the bottom of the list.

HeresyLab - The Heresy Train ProjectThis Kickstarter has 5 days to go.  Heresy Labs has some pretty ornate vehicles and terrain available from previous Kickstarters as well as his popular Heresy Train.  This adds a very unique Grimdark Future Train that you can print, to your collection.  I’m kind of excited to see where this goes and see additional unlocks.
