3D Printable Terrain & Miniature Kickstarters – May 2019
One of the great things about our 3D printers, is the 3D terrain and miniatures we can print. This is one of the primary reasons I personally purchased my 3D printer. Please let me know if I am missing any campaigns. You can find these companies and more in the 3D Terrain directory. Click here for last month’s Kickstarters.

Stormguard: 3D printable Terrain for RPG and Wargames
This Kickstarter is in LATE PLEDGE. RM Studios Terrain has been working on this one for some time. We started talking on the first of September when he had some drawings and a grand idea. Five months later, and Stormguard has arrived. Now, I have printed a couple of pieces (and currently have one on the bed). These look awesome, and print really well. This is a broken city that is very Tolkienesque. I’ve recently been playing Shadow of War and some of these pieces look like they would fit right into the ruins in there. If you need a fantasy themed table, this is probably one of best starting points out there.

This Kickstarter has finished. These are large format hex tiles for creating a table from. You can go to his site and download the sample pack if you are interested. This seems to be a very robust set of hex tiles for creating maps out of. It is very interesting how he shows different feels for the terrain, depending on how it painted, and how distinctly different it looks. If you are interested in a hex based map system, this may be for you.

What if I don’t have a 3D Printer?
I created a guide for those that don’t own a 3D Printer. It goes through several places that you can get prints done. I plan to expand it as new ideas come my way.
If you are looking to pick up a 3D Printer, check out my 3D Printer Buying Guide. If you want the bare-bones, quick recommendation, check out my quick guide to what 3D Printer to buy.
Sweet list. I’m a backer of both City Of Tarok by Black Scrolls Games and Swamp Of Sorrows by Aether Studios. They are both fully funded, check out the cool stretch goals!
I’ve actually backed both of them, as well. 🙂 I’d like to back a few more… but have run out of Kickstarter funds for the time being.
