3D PRINTABLE TERRAIN & MINIATURE KICKSTARTERS – May 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 April’s Kickstarters. Click here for June’s Kickstarters.
This Kickstarter has 19 days to go. This is another extremely thematic pack from Ian Lovecraft. This features some amazing Roman architectures and miniatures. For those Gangs of Rome fans, this is pretty much a no-brainer. If you want some very stylized fantasy pieces, for D&D and other fantasy games, this one has some great terrain for both dungeons (Sewers) and buildings/walkways/roads, plus terrific NPC Miniatures. This KS really does have it all. Along with the KS, there are some pretty amazing sounding stretch goals too, like the Roman War Galley, Hippodrome, and Carthaginian War elephants.
This Kickstarter has 9 days to go. This is a new concept. We’ve seen rail roads as part of terrain, but this is the first I have seen that is entirely dedicated to producing replica rail tracks.
This Kickstarter has 12 days to go. This is another Kickstarter by the ever prolific 3D Print Terrain. This one features terrain and vehicles for a sci-fi setting. This looks like it would fit in with most sci-fi settings including Star Wars Legion with its clean lines.
This Kickstarter has 17 days to go. This features an extended goblin village along with the cute little ankle biters that inhabit it. This has some great looking goblin-esque buildings for a full village. On top of that, is a line of 3D Printable miniatures like their previous Townsfolke Kickstarter, but all Goblins.
This Kickstarter has 24 days to go. Eslo has created some very interesting terrain in the past and is back with a 3D Printable historic/fantasy castle. This also features a desert castle and Asian Fortress. It is 28mm, but he has conversion percentages down to 10mm.
This Kickstarter has 28 days to go. This kickstarter features a number of post-apocalyptic pieces that would be great in games like Gaslands or Fallout and many other sci-fi games out there. There is a torn up road building set that looks outstanding. A dilapidated outpost with all the pieces needed, plus airport and water plant terrain. The first two stretch goals are unlocked as well.
KICKSTARTERS THAT HAVE FINISHED THIS MONTH.
This Kickstarter is in late pledge. This is the 2nd Kickstarter by GameScape 3D. It is another outpost design, but this time designed around an Eleven motif. This is OpenLOCK compatible and has a new “OpenPeg” vertical system. It is compatible with their previous Kickstarter.
This Kickstarter has finished. This is an OpenLOCK compatible tile and wall set for Sci-Fi gaming. This includes several new pieces that go along with their previous Sci-Fi Kickstarters. (If you missed out on the Sci-Fi 1 & 2 kickstarters, there is a pledge level for them, as well). Hayland Terrain is always generous with stretch goals, so I am excited to see what comes of this.
This Kickstarter has finished. This is the 2nd Kickstarter for Fabio and brings more terrain to your fantasy or many other games. This features dead trees, rock formations and ruins. These wouldn’t be out of place in a large number of gaming genres. He has some promising terrain here.
This Kickstarter has finished. This is an interesting Kickstarter with a number of 3D Printable tanks. there are a variety of vehicles from more classic looking Tanks to more Dark Millenium tanks and even a couple of walkers. There is a good amount of nice looking terrain as well.
This Kickstarter has finished. This is a very small Kickstarter featuring 8 Tombstones meant to be printed via SLA. They are highly detailed 28/32mm models inspired by Caspar David Friedrich’s Gothic paintings. You can pick up all of these models for £6. This is a short, 2 week Kickstarter.
This Kickstarter has finished. This is the 2nd Kickstarter by 2nd Dynasty featuring Starship based tiles that are OpenLOCK compatible. This set features Engineering, Corridor, and hanger tiles to build out a space station or Starship. There are also a number of addons like the Bridge Set, Gargantuan Drive and Space Fighter. Finally, you can also add in to pledge for items from the previous Kickstarter as well.
This Kickstarter has finished. This is a mixed collection of fantasy/historic scatter terrain. It features trees, general buildings, even a chicken coop of sorts. It’s got a very good mix of models that he has designed for dioramas and tabletop games.
This Kickstarter has finished. This is the 4th Kickstarter by Project Mobius. This Kickstarter features an array of buildings and terrain pieces that would be good for a Sci-Fi table. They have already achieved 2 stretch goals.
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.
