Wightwood Abbey - 3D Printable Medieval Monastery

CA$ 44,737

540

** Dawa was at it again with another live zbrush session! Watch him now model a writing desk for the scriptorium. Check it out here! **

The Wightwood Abbey set is now up to over 70 individual models. 3 MASSIVE Buildings, 7 Large Buildings, 10 Medium pieces and 60+ pieces of furniture, scatter terrain, and complementary accessories.

For the "Core set with stretch goals" reward tier you get it all. The Kickstarter ends Friday morning, so this is your last chance to get it all for this amazing price. 

Jump on board and join the Wightwood Abbey Project!

Last minute pledge level added!

The Lord Patrons have run out, the King has been crowned, but who will defend the gates against the dangers of the wild!?! 

We've added 5 'Devoted Gatekeeper' pledge levels to help push us into the much desired 'cobble the square' stretch goal and possibly beyond. Select this pledge level and you will receive a professionally painted Wightwood Abbey Gatehouse deliver right to your door (plus the core set and all the stretch goal .stl files and the lore .pdf)! To the walls!!!

Wightwood Abbey is a complete, 3D printable medieval abbey for use with tabletop games. The basic set includes a church, scriptorium, abbot’s house, stables, gatehouse and the enclosing walls. All of these unique pieces have been designed to work together as an overall abbey complex, or they could be used as standalone pieces in a variety of settings (steampunk, European theatre, etc).

In addition to the basic buildings, we have a series of stretch goals lined up that we believe add even more depth and playability to this already substantial product. Those stretch goals will be added to the core reward, at no additional cost, as they are unlocked.

Unless specifically noted in your pledge level, the rewards for this kickstarter will be delivered as .stl files for use with a home 3D printer or other 3D printing service.

What do you get with your pledge?

Your pledge gets you download access to the digital .stl files for all the rewards at your pledge level. The core set for the Wightwood Abbey monastery consists of 5 buildings (the gatehouse, stables, scriptorium, abbot's house, and church) and the encircling fortified walls. If your reward level includes stretch goals then you will also receive all stretch goals that are achieved.

For those of you who want to see what the core set costs in your country's monetary denomination, here are a few conservative conversions for most popular currencies:

$88 AUD = $85 CAD = $69 USD = €56 EUR = £49 GBP

or you can get a live conversion here.

Remember, the core set pledge gets you everything listed below, that's the core buildings plus all the unlocked stretch goals!

We did a summary of everything included so far we're looking at over 70(!) models all told (and growing!):

- 3 massive models perfect for large interior battles (scriptorium, church, infirmary) 
- 7 large buildings of multiple levels (abbot's house, rookery, shrine, gatehouse, etc)
- 10 medium sized structures (crypt entrance, water pump, smitty yard, etc)
- and over 60 components! (everything from wood piles, to ladders, to an anvil)

This is a HUGE set that is getting close to a ridiculous $1 a model (looking at everything from the 'smitty' hammer to the scriptorium)!

PLUS (not enough time to update image!!):

- The Apiary: Busy monks keep busy with the beehives, collecting honey for food preparation and for mead!

- The Hen Coop: Eggs and meat and companionship!

- The Porc Styes: The above without the eggs!

- The Laundry: I simply cannot wear this robe another day...

The core set buildings details:

The Gatehouse:

"The ingress by which all those who follow the faith enter into the hallowed grounds of the abbey, and the means by which all those who would defile it are kept at bay. Be vigilant! Keep your eyes on the horizon!"

A two story building guarding the main entrance to the abbey. It has functioning double doors and is big enough for a horse and rider or small cart to pass through. The second story guard room is accessible by external stone stairs. The roof detaches to allow for internal gameplay. 

The Stables:

"They say spending time with the innocence of animals is akin to spending time in the presence of the holy."

A one story building with two sets of functioning double doors. Large enough to hold animals or small vehicles. It comes with two small pens on either side with optional roofs. All roofs detach to allow internal game play.

The Abbot's House:

"A place to rest your weary feet after long days of pacing the courtyard contemplating the nature of divinity. Rest well (and don't forget to say your prayers!)."

The personal residence of Wightwood Abbey's abbot. A two story building with internal detailing, a stairwell and functioning doors. Accessible on each floor by detachable levels and roofs.

The Massive Scriptorium:

"Ah, the glorious scriptorium, wherein all learning and copying of the ancient texts takes place. Hope you brought a cushion!"

A three story building which houses the monks quarters on the ground floor and the scripture hall in the upper gallery (where the monks copy out their holy texts). The third floor has an inner balcony level with access to a rear external balcony. The facade incorporates a cloister with detachable roof sections for easy access. The upper floors and roof come apart to allow multilevel access and game play. 

Wightwood Abbey Church
Wightwood Abbey Church

The Wightwood Church:

"So very much do the pilgrims revere the blessed church. Its majestic organ, sanctified nave, and magnificent apse bring humility to all who enter its sacred halls. May your devotion not go unnoticed."

A monumental building, printed in 10 parts, big enough for an internal battle. It has an interior balcony (with organ!) overlooking the nave, a tall tower and steeple, front and side entrances, as well as two small and one large rose windows. The roof and wall sections detach all the way down to the building's footprint to allow for easy access and sight-lines from all angles.

The Village Gate and fortified walls:

"Rest easy my brothers, for the walls were built over a hundred years ago, and never have they faltered. Well, there was that one time..."

Fortified stone walls topped by iron works surround the entire abbey complex to protect it from intruders. The main entrance is accessed through the guard house yet there is a second smaller 'village gate' entrance that gives the villagers access to the front doors of the church. 

The walls may hold, but will the men...

Each building comes in a bundle of clearly named .stl files that you can print on any 8"x 8" (200mm x 200mm) sized print bed. Some parts are meant to be glued together after printing and some left as separate pieces that attach via our simple peg system.

Ease of Play -Each building has removable floors and rooftops and can be opened up to reveal a fully modeled playable interior. Buildings separate at just the right height for internal gaming to be obstruction free, and our peg system allows for easy separation and reattachment of sections. As well, passageways and floor areas have been modeled to accommodate standard 1” bases, so you’ve always got enough space to move your figures about. 

Game Scalability - Our .stl files are scaled to print at a 28mm tabletop standard (for ease of use with most roleplaying and tabletop miniature games) and are supplied as such. However, we have also made sure that models scaled to ½ size also print properly and can be incorporated into any 15mm historical wargame.

Historically Plausible/Visually Beautiful/Fun: Our vision of tabletop terrain is one of form as well as function. We want our gaming pieces to be able to fit equally into a historical setting as well as one of fantasy. For that reason, we’ve tried to keep true to examples of historical building methods and yet add enough of our own aesthetic to make them unique and full of character making them usable in both your fantasy and your historical games.

Printer Friendly: Our models will print on any standard 8"x8" (200mm x 200mm) printer bed with minimal need for support material. We've carefully tested wall thickness, overhangs, potential bridging issues and other 3D printing pitfalls and have incorporated the most efficient way to print each part (given the variation of printers out there) into our final .stl files. 

Lore and Campaign Ideas: Also included in the all core set and higher pledges is access to our .pdf files of Wightwood Abbey lore, characters and campaign Ideas to add to your own existing campaign or get you started on a new one.

Interior modelling has begun! Check out what we've been up to since the Kickstarter began.

Add-ons provide you with the options to add any number of buildings to the 'one or more add-on buildings' pledge. Select the 'one or more add-on buildings' pledge if you wish to purchase more than one of the buildings from the set, but less that the whole set. Simply select the 'one or more add-on buildings' pledge level and then add the add-on costs below for additional building files.

Gatehouse: CAD$15

Abbot's House: CAD$15

Stables: CAD$10

Scriptorium: CAD$25

Church: CAD$25

Attack on Wightwood Abbey T-shirt: CAD$40 (includes shipping)

Please notice that the pledge level for the entire abbey is only CAD$85, just a friendly reminder that pledging for the whole set is added value. :)

Why we are Kickstarting

All the buildings in the core set have been modeled, tested and the exterior texturing has been completed. However, we need your help to allow us to continue with the interior texturing, complete the perimeter walls, and make the set even more functional with modifications such as working doors and of course to meet our stretch goals. Professional quality 3D modeling is time consuming and expensive and our models take weeks to get right. We won't sacrifice quality and we're determined to keep these models up to our professional standards. This is why we’re asking for your help. This project is our passion but we can’t complete it without your support. So if you like what you see here, please consider pledging so that we can make Wightwood Abbey the best 3D printable terrain set out there and get it into your hands (and onto your game table)! We are so close to our goal.

Infinite Dimensions Games, Ltd., was started by James Binnie and Dawa Fruitman for the purpose of creating high quality, realistic scenery for download and 3D printing. Between the two of us, there is over 20 years of experience in professional 3D modelling and 50 (!) years of time spent playing tabletop games. We saw a need in the gaming community for a line of detailed terrain with a high degree of in-game functionality and realism, and all our efforts are directed to meet that need. Our models are designed with the gamer in mind and are play-tested for ease of use and durability. We want to see beautiful, realistic 3D printed terrain on the table and we want to be the ones creating it. It is our most sincere hope that these models exceed your expectations and bring excitement and maybe more than a little pride when you use them in your games. That’s the reason we’re doing this and with your help we will make it happen!

TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Your pledge gets you download access to the .stl files for all the rewards at your pledge level. This kickstarter is NOT for physical product, and access to a 3D printer (either your own or through a printing service) is needed to take advantage of the rewards. These digital files and the models you print with them are for PERSONAL USE ONLY. You may not sell models you print using our files, nor may you distribute the digital files or use any derivatives for commercial purposes. If you would like to sell printed versions of our models please contact us about an artisan or printer's licence.

 We went live again to talk a little more about our stretch goals:

Risks and challenges

We’ve been working on this project for many months now and have the core set nearly finished. Risks associated with completion of this project are minimal as we have a very clear path laid out to put the finishing touches on the core product, and as long as our funding goals are met we have accounted very well for our costs. As there is no physical product, there is no risks involved in manufacturing or shipping. All we have to do is sit down and complete the tasks we’ve already started but need funds to continue.

We have interior texturing to do, an exterior wall to finish, stretch goals we hope to work on, and final versions of .stl files to compile. The risk would be that we would be unable to complete what is left. However, years of experience budgeting for 3D projects has helped us pick our initial funding goal and our stretch goals wisely and we know we will be able to deliver the products promised if we attain the funding we are seeking.

Both of us have owned and operated our own businesses for many years and although this is our first kickstarter we are very familiar with the demands of running a business and of having to deliver on-schedule.

Because this work is our passion and we want to move forward in creating a vibrant, thriving business, you can be sure we are 100% dedicated to making this project a complete and thrilling success. We have the core product, we just need your funding to make it better.
