About

City of Tarok is a 3D printable medieval and fantasy village set with buildings that were great at their height, but after a huge war, they are just crumbling remains of the gorgeous buildings they once were. The area is still populated, but the inhabitants have fallen on hard times. As people come back, the once abandoned buildings are getting new life, the mill, blacksmith and mine are working again and there is new light where once, there was only darkness.

This project will offer you six different buildings in downloadable digital STL file format.

Some of the core buildings:

The House v1 model - painted version

(See previous extras at the top of the campaign.)

(These are sketches and early blockouts, the final design will be more detailed and may change.)

These buildings are varied in their size, completely custom modeled and carefully designed for the purpose of 3D printing. Our goal was to offer you unique buildings that can be a cheaper alternatives to casted models, but still visually pleasing on your tabletop. To achieve this, we modeled all the cracks and every detail individually. You’ll find few repeating patterns on the models.

3D renders of the actual STL files:

Pictures of the unpainted models

Minimal cleaning and no slicer support needed. There is no post process on the models like sanding.

10mm test prints

As 3D printing becomes cheaper and better, we thought we would create models that you can use with your future printers as well. You’ll receive high-resolution STL files that preserve all the little details. 

No slicer support needed!

Our models do not need slicer support, we designed the parts to print well without them. The time for printing will be faster and you don’t have to throw away your support material.

We’ve cut bigger parts into smaller pieces that you can attach easily with our hinge system. 

You can see where the parts are connecting, we printed this model using different filaments. You can glue parts together for better stability.

Scale them for wargaming!

 You can change the size of the models in your slicer software before you print them, so it is very easy to print them at any scale from 6mm to 40mm. (Larger is also possible but you'll need a printer with a large bed.) 

This is a picture of the blacksmith at 10mm scale and it is still containing a lot of details. Our backers will receive the source of the Cura profile to get this awesome result even on an FDM printer like the Ender 3!

You can open and close the doors to make your tabletop more alive.

These windows have a slot where you can place transparent plastic foil or you can print out glass images with your inkjet printer. Use small tea lights to imitate the light inside while your players are adventuring in this area.

How to print them: 

You’ll need a printer at least with a 16x16cm sized bed to print out these pieces. These files work well with most of the popular printers, like Prusa MK2, MK3, Creality Ender 3, 5, CR10, TEVO Tarantula and other machines. We have a TEVO Tarantula and a Creality Ender 3 machine, both  producing  great quality at the $220 price range.

Time for printing and the quality of the final product is highly dependent on your printer and slicer setting. We printed these models at 0.16 layer height so we could show you a mid-range quality. One piece of the levels took around 8-12 hours to print, but printing time can be lowered if you print the models at 0.2 mm layer height. Some of the parts were printed at that quality and we could not see any differences, especially on painted models.

You can resize the files for wargames but you have to use glue at a smaller scale to assemble the pieces as you'll lose the hinges.

We at Black Scrolls Games are working on our products because they make our work easier as a Game Master, and game sessions are more enjoyable with them. We’ve forged all of our experience and knowledge we collected as Game Masters and 3D artists in the past years into these sets and we hope you will enjoy them at least as much as we enjoyed working on them. If you still have questions, please read the FAQs or write to us in the comment section, we will try to reply you as soon as we can.

Why Kickstarter? 

Although we funded Black Scrolls Games, our own company, three years ago, we have eight years of experience in the tabletop game business. We know that making a set takes time and releasing a new product is very risky for a small business like us. With the help of Kickstarter, it will be easier for us to manage our work and our other processes because we will see how many customers are interested in our models. Also, with the help of the comment sections, we will know what you need.

Info about licenses: 

We release our products under the CC-BY-NC license, which means you can modify, use, and display these models for personal use. You cannot sell the digital and/or printed copies or earn money with them. If you share them on other sites or groups, please mention our page where others can also get the models. Thank you! 

You can get rights to sell the printed models two ways:

1, You can get a lifetime commercial license on these models with the $360 Merchant reward level. This waives the "Non-Commercial" stipulation attached to our designs, though we would still like attribution in text on your Etsy, eBay, or similar storefront posts where applicable, and the item must be a finished, 3D-printed product (not the re-sale of a digital file). You can sell the printed models via Etsy, eBay, or on any sites without modification using this lifetime license. We will publish an agreement. Casts (series production) are not allowed, only the 3D printed models. 

2, As an alternative, select the $60 Settler reward here to receive the files and after that you can subscribe for our Patreon with the Merchant tier ($15) which will give you the same rights but only as long as you will be signed up for this Patreon tier, this is not a lifetime license and has a per-release monthly fee. 

Please use this payment option only if you want to pay with PayPal or you do not have access to a credit card to use it on Kickstarter. These pledges will also be counted in our total to unlock more stretch goals. 


Pledged via PayPal: $780

Risks and challenges

We already released 50 larger and smaller products as Black Scrolls Games since we started our company three years ago and more than 100 products working with other publishers in the past eight years. We managed long projects, too, (some of them were 2 years long) and learned how to deliver on time and how to develop a product from scratch. Our experience of publishing and releasing products will help us to bring these products to you after this Kickstarter campaign.
Many of the elements of this project are already tested and designed and because of this, we don't see any reason for delay. If anything comes up we will let you know and tell you how we will handle and solve it.
This is our second self-run Kickstarter project here, but we helped to design and manage many more, this process is not unfamiliar to us.
