I saw the original movie in 1977.  Though I was only 7 years old, that movie has stuck with me my whole life.  A few years ago I purchased my first 3D printer and it wasn't long before I figured out that I could start creating unique items that I couldn't find in stores.  Then I purchased another printer, and another until I had a whole fleet of them.  I knew it was time to begin designing and creating on a large scale. 

Being a huge fan of the X-Wing Miniatures game from FFG, I wanted to recreate the space terrain complete with turrets, power nodes and an exhaust port. 

Turrets 1 1/4" tall, Power Nodes 1 1/8" tall
Turrets 1 1/4" tall, Power Nodes 1 1/8" tall

My goal was to make something unique so before I began, I scoured the internet, looking everywhere just to be certain that I wasn't reinventing the wheel.  Once I was satisfied that my look and mechanic was unique, I began and didn't stop revising and improving the product until I knew I had it just right. Each piece is well built and built to last!

But I didn't want to stop there so I embedded each plastic surface piece with strong earth magnets so that each part "snapped" together and stayed together until I wanted them to come apart.  Each surface tile is approx. 6"x7"  Each support peg has four magnets and the surface can be configured in nearly any dimension you choose.

I then created a countdown timer that resembles the one used on Yavin, utilizing earth magnets to keep the dial pointed at the selected number. 

Since play areas are large, players may need a more confined area in which to roll their dice, so I created a dice tower which looks amazing and is perfect when you don't have a lot of room to roll dice. 

 

Just for fun, I made a pair of dice cups! 

Our final designs are done and we're ready to start production with a ship-out date of October, 2017!  Our ultimate goal is to bring this to the mass marketplace.  I want to one day see these sets in stores all over, and with your help we can kick start this thing into high gear. 

The terrain collapses and stores in a compact space.  The tote shown is holding the largest size terrain of 48"x50" and measures 17"x14"x11" (tote is not included).

Below is a link to a set of rules courtesy of DagobahDave, revised by Brandon "Biff" Denzer that we have found to be the most concise for use with this terrain set.  Of course this terrain can be sized to fit other sets of rules as this is an after-market scenario.

Risks and challenges

I will be sending regular updates regarding manufacturing and shipping dates both on Kickstarter as well as on an individual basis.

Our mission is your satisfaction and we can't wait to get these into your hands!
