Note: FINISHED Kickstarters are at the bottom of the list.
Roads to Adventure: STL Files for Large Primitive 3D Roads
This Kickstarter has 13 days to go. This Kickstarter is pretty much the definition of “crushing it”. In 2 days it has attracted 342 backers. GameScape3D has hit on something universal, roads, at an amazing price of only $10. This is an incredible bargain. They have created a number of Kickstarters up to this point, so they know how to make well-designed models that print well. I’ve been printing a few and must say they look really good. This one is really too good to pass up.
The Ignis Quadrant – 3D Printable Tabletop Models
This Kickstarter has 58 hours to go. The Ignis Quadrant is the latest brainchild from EC3D Design /Evan Carothers. The all in version of this Kickstarter features miniatures, vehicles, plus a wide assortment of miniatures. This is a great looking Kickstarter featuring a Sci-Fi theme. If you are in need of this kind of terrain, it’s really hard to beat the deals you get from Evan Carothers on his Kickstarters.
Magmhorin Realm & Cuetzpal Empire: Printable files
This Kickstarter has 24 hours to go. This is a very cool looking fantasy terrain set that features great looking models for your wargame board. It also includes a number of great looking miniatures and some smaller scatter terrain as well.

This Kickstarter has 7 days to go. After a very rocky start on their last version of this Kickstarter, they pretty much hit it out of the park with what they learned. It’s a very cool idea where they have a number of pieces that you put together to create a building you need, and then the STL file is exported to be printed. (Think along the lines of Hero Forge, except for buildings). They are currently crushing their stretch goals making this an even better value for the money. Check it out.
Survivors of Collapse
This Kickstarter has 11 days to go. This Kickstarter has everything you need for a post apocalyptic game. From miniatures, to large scatterterrain/buildings, to small pieces/props to scatter around. This has it all. It’s basically and apocalypse in a box.

This Kickstarter has 16 days to go. This is the latest Kickstarter from Printable Scenery. It features 3 “worlds” to game in. A sci-fi setting with tiles to create a base.
