About

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

The Novice Pledge - Village Smithy
The Novice Pledge - Village Smithy

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  

The Adventurer Pledge Set

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.

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 rising 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.

Future projects...
Thank you for staying this far down! I am really excited with this campaign and the prospect of building a business from this campaign. I've already begun to sketch out designs and ideas for future projects...

Please keep an eye out for:

Dark Future - sci-fi themed future terrain and assets
Elven Realms - guide your band of adventurers to the mystical lands of the Elves
Far Eastern fringes - I love Japan and every aspect of their culture, so what better way than to recreate the shogun period with terrain and assets for your tabletop battles.

    Commercial license
    I thought long and hard about this one and decided that there is still an insane number of people unlucky enough to have not discovered 3D printing yet. They really do deserve access to tools like these though and a license to sell these files seems like a good way to achieve that.

    You will receive STL files for all pledges. You will also get a license certificate authorising you to sell printed products from the STL files provided. The license does not allow you to sell the STL files. Please see FAQ for more information
