BattleFx Fantasy: 3D Printable Spells, Magic, props and more
This Kickstarter has 10 days to go. BattleFX is back, this time with a fantasy theme. Spells, traps, condition markers, and more! This is another very unique Kickstarter from Deadly Print Studios. And, if you missed their previous Sci-Fi based BattleFX, they have both of the Kickstarters on their own pledge level. There are not a lot of what I would call “universal” Kickstarters out there, but this is one of them. If you play fantasy games, and use fantasy miniatures, the spell effects look awesome. Check out a sample from Thingiverse.

This Kickstarter has 22 days to go. This is the latest release from the talented Brayan Nafarrate. This is another massive Kickstarter featuring Cthulhu mythos creatures.

This Kickstarter has 6 days to go. This is a bit different, having monsters and their babies. It looks really good. The first set of stretch goals are unlocked and there is a deal on a number of other miniatures as well. This looks like a very well rounded Kickstarter that also has some very unique aspects.

This Kickstarter has 15 days to go. Note: They changed their prices significantly, have a new look! This is an interesting one. You can create and build your own buildings, similar to how Hero Forge works. This is a very ambitious project that involves building software to build your buildings and then download them. This gives you modularity for what you want to build with solid buildings that don’t have to be constructed with each use. This is a pretty unique concept in the 3D Printing community.
Cool 3D STL files of car miniatures
This Kickstarter has 15 days to go. This is an interesting Kickstarter that features a ton of small cars for various board games that feature cars. I used to play Formula De, and this would have been awesome back then. These are all small scale so probably all print best on resin based 3D printers.
