Sir Cireneg's Border Fort is a generic castle suited to your medieval or fantasy setting. This will be the first of multiple Kickstarter campaigns, each building upon the border fort to eventually make it into a maginificent castle fit for a king.
Pieces stack upon each other for quick assembly and disassembly.
STL files are scaled for 28mm gaming but are suitable to be scaled up or down as you see fit.
Parts of this project are compatible with other Devious Games products such as the Wizard's Tower. The Wizard's Tower is also available in the I'm New Here pledge level or if you would like to try out a free design, click the link to download the Guardhouse/Tollbooth from DriveThruRPG. It is pay what you want so if you like it you could spend a little bit if you so desire. More free files are available further down the project page.
The Sir Cireneg's Border Fort pledge contains well over 40 different files to make your border fort.
- 9 Tower files
- 12 Wall files
- 4 Stair files

The tower pieces can be made into its own standalone watchtower. An imposing piece on any battlefield.
Wall pieces connect together with a dovetail system. These join the horizontal sections together. As seen in the picture below.
Pieces connect vertically with notches as seen below.
These connections make it quick and easy for you to put your border fort walls together.
This campaign has 3 pledge levels. Two with rewards attached.
This pledge level will keep you up to date with the campaign. No rewards are available at this level. Roughly US$0.67, £0.53, €0.59
This pledge level will get you all of the Sir Cinereg's Border Fort files plus any applicable stretch goals. This is over 40 files plus any extras. Roughly US$17, £13.30, €14.75 If you have pledged for my previous campaigns or just want a Border Fort this is the level for you. (Retail value US$25)
Please note this does not include the add on Ruined Castle Walls.
This pledge level is for first timers to my campaigns. You will receive all files for the Border Fort plus files from the previous Kickstarter campaigns for The Wizard's Tower, The Bridge, The Bridge Extras, The Bridge Ruins, The Sacrificial Set, The Wall and The Wall Ruins(smaller walls than the Border Fort walls). Roughly US$40, £31, €35 (Retail value US$62)
Please note this does not include the add on Ruined Castle Walls.
Many of these stretch goals are still Works in Progress or place holders. While I will endeavour to complete them all before the finish of the campaign, some of them may not be ready in time. If that is the case, the main reward will be sent out as soon as possible and the unfinished stretch goals will be added to the DriveThruRPG page when they are completed and ready for you. I would rather get these right and have them test printed to ensure they work before getting them out to you.
At NZ$500 two more sections will be added to the walls allowing your miniatures to scale the stairs of the ramparts. Rather than having your miniatures at the top or the bottom of the stairs, small sections are removed to allow you to place them at different places on top. This also leaves the impression of stairs when miniatures are placed upon them.
These sections will fit 25mm bases.
At NZ$1000 a small lean-to will be added. This will simply lean against a wall and let you put whatever goods you want underneath to keep dry. You can even lean 2 of these together to create a small shelter.
At NZ$2000 Wooden Hoardings will be available for the walls. Keep your people extra protected.

The Super Secret No One Knows Stretch goal of $2906 is for beating my previous highest Kickstarter campaign... Okay I made this for fun and decided to add it for free to all rewards but it happened to coincide closely to beating my previous high Kickstarter campaign. This is the Stables. Roughly 14cm accross when assembled. Made to lean up against the castle walls like the barracks was. It contains an area for the horses with a wooden trough inside and an area for storage as well.
At NZ$3000 Wooden Hoardings for the Tower will be added!
At NZ$4000 a section will be added that allows the Tower to connect to the Wizard tower (previous kickstarter).
At NZ$5000 a Tower room will be added that has 3 entrances. Great for access the ramparts on both sides and then also connecting to the Wizards tower.
At $6000 a Kitchen will be added to the Border Fort.
At $7000 a blacksmith will be added to the pledges.
At $8000 all those that have purchased the Wall Ruin Add On will have this upgraded with Tower ruins as well making it super awesome value!
$9000 - Wagon/Cart
At $9000 a cart will be added to pledges so that you can use this as scatter terrain inside the border fort (or outside if you really want)
$10,000 - Lords Hall
Sir Cinereg will reach the lofty status of Lord! At this amount the Lord's Hall will be unlocked for all pledge levels NZ$25 and up. This will be a meeting place where Lord Cinereg can meet with his subjects and discuss reparations for all the ruins he created with those (un)social goals.
Here are 2 free files for you to download from my Thingiverse page. These files will be removed upon completion of the campaign. You don't even need to back the project (although that would be nice, but even sharing it would be nice too!)
For every 5 shares the post pinned to the top of my facebook page sharing this project gets on Facebook, I will unlock a new ruin pieces until we reach 25 shares. If shares go crazy I might be persuaded to sculpt some more pieces. These unlocked pieces will go out to backers of the project only.
The well has also been unlocked
To add the Castle Wall Ruins to your pledge, add $5 to your pledge amount. This will now also include ruined tower sections
And here are some printed examples of the files. Not all files are shown
I have run three previous kickstarters for STL files that have been successful. The Wizard's Tower and The Wizard's Tower Bridge Expansion were both Fantasy settings and Guido's Shipping yard was a more modern setting.
You can check out each campaign at these links.
Guido's Shipping yard is not included in the "I'm new here" pledge.
Fulfillment of Sir Cireneg's Border Fort will be completed through DriveThruRPG. Each backer will receive copies via their account. Fulfillment will begin as soon as possible. This should hopefully be within 2 weeks of the project funding. A survey will be sent out shortly after the project has funded to gather email addresses associated with DriveThruRPG accounts. Please note, this is the only way to gain these files. It will be advantageous to you as you will then have the files in your library so you can access them as often as you would like.
If you are interested in Licensed printing of these, allowing you to sell printed copies, check out my Patreon page. At the moment it is $3 a month for anything I have produced but this will increase as I get a larger portfolio of products. STL files must be purchased first for this licensing.
You can also check out my Facebook page for more regular updates to things. I don't like to bombard the kickstarter page which loads and loads of things after the campaign except for progress reports which are generally very few as fulfillment is usually very quick.
Also, check out my brothers Art Station page, he kindly does a lot of the nicer images on this page.
Risks and challenges
This is my fourth Campaign for STL files. The first three went smoothly in regards to fulfilling rewards. Most rewards were sent out within 24 hours of people completing their survey with surveys being sent within a week of the close of the project.
If this is highly successful some of the stretch goals may take longer to be received by backers but the core files will be sent out as soon as possible with stretch goal files being sent out as they are completed (after design, printing and testing).
Files are constantly backed up in the cloud so that they are kept safe in the unlikely event of my computer crashing big time.
