That's it! THANK YOU, EVERYONE! What a wild ride! I must thank you all, again. I've had such a blast running this campaign and getting to know some of you.
I never imagined how well it would go when I launched the campaign. But I am positively surprised. We may not have reached 18K but I'm still amazed we've all got this far! And seeing how it's this close to Christmas I'm going to round up to the next unlocked SG! Invader huts for all!
Now, the hard work begins. I've got to prepare the models and carry out further test prints to ensure what I send out prints well.
When will you get your prints? I plan to start releasing model packs after I have received confirmation from Kickstarter that the funds have been transferred to us. That's about 2 weeks from today (end of the campaign).
This will give me some time to model/check/test print the remaining models of the pledge levels. I will update you on the progress of each during the 2 weeks. The SG models will be released as soon as they have been completed, this may take a bit of time as more models have been unlocked than I could have imagined! Well done you!
What happens when everything is done and dusted? I will be catching up on some sleep! Haha. But seriously, I have big plans! Plans to expand the range, I will continue to work on this and other projects through my Patreon page. You will be able to get hold of buildings/terrain/props/minis from as little as $5 a month. These are not just small models. It could be anything Patrons suggest and vote for. So if you do like the models you get, please come and have a look at my Patreon at patreon.com/darkrealms
Also please join our facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/darkrealmsforge I'd love to see everyone's print and paint jobs and seeing them on gaming tables!
Finally, future KS projects... I've already begun to sketch out designs and ideas for future projects, please keep an eye out for our future KS campaigns: Cities and towns - modern buildings from towns and cities for your rpg/ war games Elven & Dwarven Realms - guide your band of adventurers to the mystical lands of the Elves and down into the Dwarven Halls. Dark Future - sci-fi themed future terrain and assets Far Eastern fringes - I love Japan and every aspect of their culture, so what better way than to recreate the Edo period with terrain and assets for your tabletop battles One Thousand and One Nights - Take your adventurers on a Sinbad-esque adventure to far distant lands filled with monsters and deadly tasks! Persian/middle-eastern style buildings.

Welcome to our first tabletop terrain campaign! By picking up one of our pledges you will get access to a great variety of 3D Model STL Files that are prepared to be printed out using 3D printers. The theme behind this campaign is set in a medieval world, inspired by historic buildings and objects.
I've worked within the tabletop wargames industry, worked as an architectural assistant where I found my calling as a 3D artist, which has led me to work in the film and video games industry. I have always been involved with tabletop wargaming and RPG throughout my life, and recently wondered how to bring my skills of creating 3D assets to the tabletop.
With the rapid development of the home desktop 3D printer and the falling prices making 3D printing more accessible, this has opened up an opportunity for me to create objects and buildings for my battles and adventures. I believe that terrain and props can play such an important role in the wargame/RPG story.
I hope this campaign can help me gain the confidence to further develop and create a new range of minis, terrain, and collectibles created to be used in your RPG and tabletop battles. I plan to develop a website for the miniatures and terrain range, and I'd love to be able to focus on projects like this full-time.
THE AWESOME STUFF WE HAVE FOR YOU
For this campaign, I have created STL files of medieval buildings and props to be used in your tabletop games and battles. Each highly-detailed building can have it's floors/roof removed so that you can gain entry to these levels. The models are designed for 28mm/heroic scale miniatures and games. However, with re-scaling in mind when modeling the details, these models can be scaled down for 15mm scaled games.
THE NOVICE - £5 Pledge
For as little as $5 you can show your support for my dreams and this campaign.
For this entry-level pledge, you will be rewarded with the smithy building STL file.
The village or town smithy/forge was an important part of life. Horses needed shoeing, tools made, and weapons can be forged. Would you be lucky to pick up a magical weapon from a smithy like this?!
THE ADVENTURER - £40 Pledge
For this pledge, you will be rewarded with the STL files to print a small village and protective walls to surround the town.
The package includes STL files to print out the following:
- A Townhall - each floor can be removed for access in storytelling
- A Watchtower - the roof can be removed to access the fighting platform
- A stone bridge - this can be connected to the road and waterways terrain pieces
- Road and Waterways - detailed cobble roads and little waves to indicate a small river. The pieces can be connected together to create a long winding road/waterway
- A small chapel - the roof can be removed to access the room inside
- 3 styles of houses - each floor/roof can be removed to access to the rooms inside
- A Tavern - the biggest building in the set. Each floor/roof can be removed to access to the rooms inside
- Castle walls - castle wall sections that can be connected together to surround the small town
THE DUNGEON MASTER - £55 Pledge
The Dungeon Master Pledge includes STL files from The Novice and The Adventurer Pledge, plus:
- Castle wall mid-section tower - can be connected to the castle wall sections
- Castle wall corner section tower - can be connected to the castle wall sections
- Castle Gate - can be connected to the castle wall sections and complete your formidable fortress
- Dungeon panels - modular grid panels to build your very own dungeon to trap would-be treasure hunters (under development)
- Scatter Terrain - a collection of furniture, ruins, tombstones, treasure chests, and other props to fill your rooms and town to add some detail and character (under development)
- 10 different NPCs - populate your town with these minis. (Currently being designed and sculpted )
- Plus **ALL UNLOCKED** Stretch Goals!
THE MERCHANT - £75 Pledge
Commercial license - I thought long and hard about this one and I think that there is still a crazy number of people that may not have access to 3D printing yet. I would really welcome anyone wishing to help spread the love of minis and terrain and a license to sell these printed terrain pieces seems like a good way to achieve that.
The commercial license covers selling of the physical 3D printed part created from the supplied STL files. The license does not cover the sale of the actual STL files themselves.
You will receive all STL files from this campaign, a certificate of your license to sell the printed parts from the STL files. Your shop/business/website would also be included in the list of licensed sellers on our website. Please check FAQ for any additional information on the Commercial license.
As we are currently sculpting the NPCs, both Alive and Dead, please enjoy the sneak peek for the next Stretch Goal as we work towards getting the minis finished!
TEST PRINTS FOR QUALITY CONTROL
Risks and challenges
These assets were designed to the 28mm/heroic scale RPG and tabletop wargames. As such, I have tried my best to design each asset to retain detail and quality when it gets scaled down to other scale games.
I am constantly testing and developing models and any feedback from backers after delivery will be received and taken into account for future projects. As time permits, I will endeavour to address any and all issues arising from the STL files themselves.
The STL files can be used on any 3D printer. However, if you have a small print bed, please let us know so that we see if we can break down the STL file to a more manageable layout for your print bed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
