3D PRINTABLE TERRAIN & MINIATURE KICKSTARTERS – October 2018
Since they are similar, I am now linking my Patreon List to this page. Along with Kickstarter, we have a number of great community members that post great new content regularly.
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 September’s Kickstarters. Click here for November’s Kickstarters.
Note: FINISHED Kickstarters are at the bottom of the list.
Future Worlds: Landscapes – modular war game terrain
This Kickstarter has 7 days to go. Arid Hills Gaming is back with their latest Kickstarter. This is a series of terrain that you can 3D Print and use to cover your board in hills, trenches, rivers, and more. He’s sent a few pieces over to me, and they print beautifully and look really good. With a little paint they look spectacular as you can see in the Kickstarter. Check out this Kickstarter to build a beautiful table to play on.

Wargames Sci Fi Cars STL Files
This Kickstarter has 10 days to go. This is the latest Kickstarter from Kore. Featuring some awesome looking sci-fi vehicles for your games. I’m thinking these would rock for Gaslands (if you sized them down). This Kickstarter features 13 new vehicles and you can pledge more for their earlier Kickstarters as well.

Miniatures for 3D players
This Kickstarter has 11 days to go. Cross Lances is back with a TON of miniatures models. They pretty much run the gamut from sci-fi to fantasy, from cars to tokens. This Kickstarter has multiple funding levels to get what you want, or juts get everything.
Tavern-Born™: Pintsized Realms – 3D Printable Kingdoms
This Kickstarter has 14 days to go. This is an interesting new addition from Hobgoblin 3D. Really, this Kickstarter is about creating a kick-butt 3D map for your characters in your game. I do have a friend that is contemplating up sizing it a bit for Warmaster as well. But, the campaign map, really is where it’s at, in my opinion. And, it would be pretty incredible to have a fully realized campaign map for your characters instead of a picture from a book.
STL & OBJ FILES FOR GERMAN TANKS & VEHICLES
This Kickstarter has 14 days to go. This Kickstarter features a number of german vehicles and tanks from WWII.
Ancient Worldship corridors
This Kickstarter has 24 days to go. This one has a bunch of sci-fi terrain. It features a number of walls and terrain for sci fi, as well as a number of bases. This looks like he is going for an Eldar vibe.

KICKSTARTERS THAT HAVE FINISHED THIS MONTH.
WarLayer- Zone One
This Kickstarter has finished. You can late pledge. This is Andrew’s 3rd Kickstarter. His previous two Warlayer kickstarters have been wildly successful and he has been teasing us with these for some time. I’ve even started printing some to show off how good and far along this set is. This features a Gothic architecture that would fit in a Batman/DC game or any grimdark miniatures sci-fi game.

It features a number of beautifully sculpted dragons from many of the top modelers in the community. It’s proven, already, to be wildly popular having crushed all of its stretch goals in under 2 days. Check it out.

Dungeon architect – Build a dungeon in a day
This Kickstarter has finished. This is a bit of an interesting Kickstarter. Instead of printing your terrain, this Kickstarter gives you to the tools to take traditional hobby materials and give them texture to be able to be used as terrain. It says it works on XPS foam and polymer clays.

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.
