3D PRINTABLE TERRAIN KICKSTARTERS – April 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 March’s Kickstarters.

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

 

Townsfolke by Ill Gotten Games

This Kickstarter has 4 days to go.  This Kickstarter is optimized to make 3D Printable miniatures, using an FDM printer. Conventional miniatures do not print well on FDM printers, but specific models can be optimized for FDM printers.  Ill Gotten Games is known for the terrific and prolific creation of STL files for print, and like his other Kickstarters, these look great.

This Kickstarter has finished.  This is a different Kickstarter that is for board games.  In this instance, it is Zombicide: Black Plague.  It is some trays to help organize the game box.  Each tier is pretty inexpensive.  Since I don’t own the game, I don’t know how much this is needed, but I do know that many of my board games could use better, 3D printed trays.  

28mm Modular Modern Buildings & SceneryThis Kickstarter has finished.  This is Hayland Terrain’s latest Kickstarter showing modern tiles and terrain for your gaming table.  From the garage to a supermarket, to plants and then on to stretch goals.  There is also a Universal Tile upgrade, on top of the main modern terrain Kickstarter.

Printable Terrain for your 3D Printer Japan / ChinaThis Kickstarter has 42 hours to go.  This is the first Asian themed Kickstarter I have seen.  This has been something that has been lacking in the design community and something I have heard mentioned several times.  This should bring us some very unique terrain for our fantasy wargames.

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.
