Starship III introduces three original, fully 3D-printable spaceships scaled for 28mm play in your favourite Tabletop RPGs or Wargames. Complete with OpenLOCK-compatible modular interiors, the ships are detailed inside and out and a variety of configurations can be used to customise the deck plans.

Each ship comes detailed inside and out (Scout ship standard interior shown here)

As the campaign unfolds, new starship hull variants and modules will be unlocked as stretch goals to bring even more variety to your game and increase the pledge value for everyone.

Each pledge is designed to be printed on your own 3D printer or via a print service, allowing you to print as many parts as you like, for non-commercial use. Deliverable files will be made available digitally in STL zip packs via DriveThruRPG.com (see Printing Requirements details below for print bed size requirements)

Hangar 01: Space Shuttle Alpha
Hangar 01: Space Shuttle Alpha

Need a way to get your units from the ground to orbit? This space shuttle is fully modular and can be configured as a dropship, cargo shuttle, or even a small starship. The stock standard aerodynamic fuselage comes complete with manoeuvring thrusters, sensors, landing gear and articulated main thrusters for VTOL operations.

The standard layout below is included in any pledges that include the shuttle

Explore deep space and final frontiers with this full 28mm scale scout ship, designed stock-standard for long haul endurance scout missions. Includes two manned turrets for defending in rough territory, a full sensor suite package for scanning new systems, a well equipped engineering section, cargo hold, living quarters and a 5-station forward bridge.

These are the unique parts that compose the scout ship interior, which come as a part of any scout ship pledge

Hangar 03: Transport Delta
Hangar 03: Transport Delta

Cruise the hyperspace lanes in this high-speed transport. Haul cargo - legal or illicit - with two massive engines to get you from point A to point B. Manoeuvre with the fluidity of repulsor technology and defend yourself with manned or unmanned turrets and a powerful shield generator.

For each stretch goal we shatter in funding, the value of your pledge will increase, new freebies and add ons will become available, enabling additional ship configurations, armaments, and features.

Each stretch goal is labelled as an Add-On, Common, Shuttle, Scout or Transport Stretch Goal. If the ship is included in your pledge, you get the stretch goal. Common Stretch Goals are in every pledge that offers a reward. Add-On Stretch Goals unlock hidden campaign add-ons for purchase.

Bonus Stretch!

Add-Ons are items that can be added to your pledge amount by increasing the pledge amount corresponding the add-on. You can also add additional add-ons before the fulfilment phase of the post campaign BackerKit.

Some stretch goals release new Add-Ons, unique to this campaign.

In order to print these ships yourself, you will require access to an FDM printer or a 3D printing service. These designs should be fully printable in PLA, ABS, PETG or PEI, and have been test printed in PLA and PETG.

The ships have been designed to be modular and clip together using the OpenLOCK clip available free from Printable Scenery (get the clip as part of this package here). 

However, the parts are medium sized and might not be suitable for all printers, so before pledging, ensure that your printer can accommodate the largest part for the ships you are interested in.

Shuttle: The shuttle has been designed for smaller print bed sizes and should print on 140×140×140mm print beds and up (5.5×5.5×5.5" and up).

  • Tested on a CR10, Flashforge Finder, and Flashforge Creator Pro

Scout Ship: The scout ship has moderately sized parts, with options for large prints to print with less parts.

  • Tested on the Prusa i3 Mk3 and Flashforge Creator Pro
  • Largest part is 129×125×97mm (5×5×3.8")

Transport: The transport has larger parts, and requires a medium sized print bed that can fit 215mm/8.5 inches.

  • Tested on the Prusa i3 Mk3 and Flashforge Creator Pro
  • Largest part is 176×62×140mm (7×2.5×5.5").
  • Can be rotated to fit 156×140×140mm (6.1×5.5×5.5")
  • Longest part is 215×155×35mm (6×8.5×1.4")

Note: There are some additional margins if parts are rotated, etc.

Risks and challenges

We have already launched and delivered two successful kickstarters since 2017. All of the initial files offered are already made and printable, so are ready for direct delivery.

The risks are in the delayed delivery of stretch goals, add-ons and additions created during the course of the campaign. Historically, we have had some delays, but generally not more than a few weeks. We tend to do staggered releases, making available STLs as they are completed on a weekly basis.

This time we are not offering commissions, so there will be fewer delays, and the ships are all fully printable already.
