Necroplex: 3D Printable Sci-Fi Terrain Building Blocks

$5,904

Necroplex is a 3D printed tabletop terrain construction kit, meant to be used with standard terrain building materials. We designed everything to get more terrain on your table with the least possible printing time. 

 

By extending the use of common terrain crafts, like 5mm foam core board, pvc pipe and wooden dowels, we make it easy and fast to build a nearly infinite variety of terrain. You'll be filling your table with before you know it!

Necroplex blocks are mixed and matched much like common "brick" systems. This means your terrain is as custom as you want it to be. It's ready to play quickly, more durable than standard crafted terrain, and can be assembled in unique ways each time you play with our locking clamps or easy built-in magnetization options.

 

Make large scale sci-fi industrial walkways, platforms, buildings, and thundering forges, perfect for your battles deep in the steaming depths of crowded mega-cities of the far future..

Every single piece has been thoroughly tested and designed to fit on popular 'small bed' 3d Printers. As a bonus, all pieces print without need for additional supports!

No more overnight prints, have your first project done within hours after getting your files. Build your projects your way.

"NKEA" instructions included with files, help you get started quickly!

BACKER REWARDS

Here's what you get at the three different backer tiers.

These are all 3D files for use with a 3D printer, not physical models.

The Fan Pack

Just a bonus for our supporters. Includes info-graphics, tribe banners and lore, in-depth painting and assembly tutorials, as well as our heartfelt thanks!

The City Pack

This pack of 3D files gives you everything you need to start building Necroplex terrain pieces. It comes at all Kickstarter tiers. Print these pieces and assemble them on 5mm foam core board, found at any local hobby store, and you'll have sprawling walkways and towering buildings in no time!

The Forge Pack

This pack expands on our core with all manner of pipes, machines, and other gears and gizmos. It comes at Kickstarter tiers Forge Master and above. These printed pieces make use of 3/8" dowels, 3/16" dowels, and 1/2" PVC pipe. You can find these at any local hobby or home department store. With the Forge Pack, you can assemble sprawling pipe networks and enormous steaming forges to dominate the tabletop!

The Tribes Pack

This pack lets you personalize your sprawling cities with two of our custom-designed tribes. It comes at Kickstarter tiers Gang Leader and above. Included are two unique sets of additional detail pieces, that you can swap out and give your terrain a new look. With the Tribes Pack, you can make your mark on the cybernetic cities of the far future!

The Rezari Immortals

Vanity-obsessed, these self-proclaimed royals lord themselves over all. Devoted to the search for raw power, they see beauty and social manipulation as one of the most efficient ways to wield it. Secret societies, hidden deals, and circles within circles of influence are their primary weapons, although they are also surprisingly efficient in combat, having access to stores of weapons beyond many similarly ranked tribes..

Many infuse themselves with rare technologies, while others partake of physical modification to reach their ideal. Some have even been known to adorn themselves with the flesh and bone of their foes...

They wear a mix of masks, armor, and scraps of what true fashion they can find.. They take great care in outfitting their turf in similar manner, with blackened steel, circuits, neon, and electroplated bones being their decor of choice.

Also included in the Tribes pack will be detail sets for the Scions of Hramn, a noble order of lightning fast warriors who patrol even the darkest depths of the mega cities.. Militaristic self-proclaimed knights of order, justice, and stuffing their own pockets for their "honorable deeds". How much they succeed remains to be seen, but their brutal efficiency and power does move mountains on occasion..

Their influence and power extends well beyond their station, which leads all members to a sense of self-righteousness in their actions. They've been "approved from the top" so to speak. Such connections would certainly explain the sheer amount of firepower they bring to bear.

The members of this clan are never seen without bulky suits of armor and blades at their side. Many members even carry around ornamental shields as badges of office. Meanwhile, their fixtures and buildings take on the more militaristic side of their motivation, with heavy bunkers and the regalia that adorn them.

Be sure to check out the Fan Pack for more details on each Tribe!

The Boss Club

At the Gang Leader tier you get an additional bonus in the form of a year's subscription to regular content updates. We wanted a special way to reward our initial Kickstarter backers, and what's better than listening to your ideas and making them happen? We'll be adding 2-4 new pieces a month on average, with a focus on community feedback, ideas, and potentially new tribe sets.

STRETCH GOALS

If our campaign is successful, we have a variety of unlockable rewards. As we reach the target dollar value, a stretch goal will unlock, awarding new options for our backers. We will delve deeper into the sprawl as these goals get unlocked, and further rewards will be revealed!

(Stretch goals are available at the Forge Master tier and above.)

Risks and challenges

Necroplex is a set of digital files for 3D printers. There will be no physical rewards for backing the project, only digital files.

Not all 3D printers are built alike, and different settings may produce different results. We will provide tested print parameters for each piece as part of the rewards.

There is little risk with the actual products, as most of the work is already completed and tested for ease of printing and functionality. We've put in a lot of work on tolerances, including space for things like layers of paint between edges and clamps, and designed to ensure these files print as easily and reliably as possible with current 3d printers.

Necroplex terrain projects are not built entirely from standalone 3D printable pieces. The projects require separate, yet easily obtainable, materials such as PVC piping or foamcore boards, and some assembly to fully complete the piece of terrain. You won't need to be an experienced terrain crafter, Necroplex will help cover up those rough edges.

Other materials bought separately will be needed to finish many of the terrain projects. Making sure backers are aware of this, and understand that some simple crafting IS required, is one of our primary concerns.

To address this we'll be putting together as many tutorials and instructions as we can, including sample project kits, to help backers understand everything they can build. Tutorials and instructions can often take much time, and balancing that against finishing test prints and prepping materials for release will be our main production challenge.

We've had a ton of fun designing and building this system, and want to make sure you do as well! We hope to continue building out more sets and pieces into the future.
