3D Printable Terrain & Miniature Kickstarters – January 2019
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 December’s Kickstarters. Click Here for February’s Kickstarters.
Note: FINISHED Kickstarters are at the bottom of the list.
Savage Realms Citadel
This Kickstarter has 8 days to go. This Kickstarter features beautifully crafted modular walls and buildings to create a custom citadel. Whether your PCs need a base of operation, you need a custom wall for your wargame or even a centerpiece for your gaming terrain, this Kickstarter has it all. You can even get his previous Kickstarters at a great deal that are all compatible with his OpenPeg system. He’s sent a few pieces over for me to check out. They print really well.

Starship III – Fully 3D Printable 28mm Spaceships
This Kickstarter has 15 days to go. As the title says, this is the third Starship Kickstarter that 2nd Dynasty has done. This one features fully printable ships with full interiors for Roleplaying games or as scenery for a war game. They would also make some pretty amazing objective markers for a war game. I’ll admit, I am seriously thinking about firing up a Starfinder game, to use this ship in.

Sci-fi terrain for tabletop games
This Kickstarter has 37 hours to go. This is a relatively simple Kickstarter that features stairs, walkways and some scatter terrain for your Sci-fi (and honestly modern) tabletop game. When I say simple, I mean it in the best way possible. It is one thematic piece, at a low price point.

The Skyless Realms – 3D Printable Tabletop Models
This Kickstarter has 3 days to go. This is a fantasy niche that has not been tackled before, it’s Dark Elf terrain. This is a beautifully created world he has designed and features a new piece called “Dungeon Sticks”. It reminds me of scatter blocks, with a touch of tiles without the tiles. This is a different concept that combines a battlemat with scatter terrain to build the dungeon instead of straight up dungeon tiles. Lots of innovation, and collaboration in this Kickstarter

The Fallen Titans Terrain & Miniatures
This Kickstarter has 4 days to go. He has taken a “Titan Skeleton” and used it to base several terrain pieces off of. He then uses those models and places them in different “areas” like overgrown, and cold regions.

Kingdoms of Hell
This Kickstarter has 7 days to go. Kingdoms of Hell is something different. First of all, it is a lot of awesome looking miniatures and gaming terrain. Next, it is a Role Playing Game using Ill Gotten Games’ D6 Modular Engine. Finally, it is ALSO a skirmish war game using the miniatures you print, or have laying around to form bands of demons to duke it out. It’s also cross-compatible with the RPG system. This is quite a bit of content for one Kickstarter.

Primeval Forest – 3D Printed Trees for Miniature Wargaming
This Kickstarter has 7 days to go. This is a fairly straight forward campaign. It’s all about trees. So far, 2 stretch goals have been released. It’s only $10 to jump into. I have high hopes for more Greebles coming from a guy that bills himself as “The Exotic Greeble”.

This Kickstarter has 8 days to go. Project Mobius brings us another set of terrain for your Sci-Fi gaming table. This campaign features armaments, tiles, scatter terrain and walls for your game. He has a very thematic look to his pieces bringing them all together. There are also add-ons for his previous 3 Sci-Fi structure campaigns to be added.

Tilescape GOTHIC CITY 3D Printable Modular Building System
This Kickstarter has 14 days to go. As the name says, this is a “Gothic City” and looks beautiful. This is a VERY ambitious project (like Rocket Pig tends to do). Tons of buildings, walkways, water features, plus amazing addons that add an airship, steamship (this is something that has been missing in the community) and SO much more. And by more, I mean tons of monsters even.

Titans of Legend
This Kickstarter has 22 days to go. Valendar has been working on this Kickstarter for some time. I watched him working on minis for it on his live stream and he has been showing them off. All of that time and effort have come to fruition with this Kickstarter giants of legend. The Kickstarter also features rules for these characters for D&D 5e. They are optimized for FDM and Resin printing. Check out this moderately priced Kickstarter featuring a number of cool models to print and use in your games.

KICKSTARTERS THAT HAVE FINISHED THIS MONTH.
Riders Of The Storm: Elves, Dwarfs Miniatures and Dragons – Now Late Pledging
This Kickstarter is in Late Pledging. This is another very ambitious project by Lovecraft Design & Manufacture. You probably saw some of his recent work in either All Roads Lead to Rome or the Lost Dragons Kickstarters. This time, he has turned his eye to Dragon Riders, Heroes, and a game coming up in the future and the minis for it. Oh yea, and it has terrain, too. ‘Bridgeton’ modular Bridge village looks simply amazing. I’ve even printed one of the samples on the Anycubic Chiron I am testing.

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.
