This is our first Kickstarter campaign, and we propose you a range of STL-files of Alsatian-style buildings, and one more timbered house from Normandy, printable on your 3D printer
The advantage of these houses and buildings is that they are easily usable from the Middle Ages to the present day: it will be nice for Renaissance, Thirty Years' War, Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, or WW2 with Nordwind or the Colmar pocket, for example. Most buildings are Alsatian-inspired, but can easily be used for other Central Europe areas, starting with Germany.
In order to provide the best gaming experience, all the buildings have detachable roofs. Moreover, most buildings have multiple storeys with the floor included.
The models are created in 1/72 (20/22mm) scale, but the files are optimized to downscale them to 15mm (see our own printings) or upscale them to 28mm. Simply scale them up or down to your needs in your slicer software with the following parameters
1/100 - 15mm = 73% (0.73 in Cura)
1/87 - Half-0 - HO = 83% (0.83 in Cura)
1/56 - 28mm = 127% (1.27 in Cura)
or any other scale of the interval (just ask us for the right scale parameter)
If you have a printer with a 8" (20cm) print bed wide, it is no problem to print the longer 28mm buildings. Feel free to stay in contact with us, to supply you with optimized parts for your printer.
We tested the printings in 1/100 scale (15mm)*, because it's faster for us, but also because we think it's the scale where we see 3D-print layering the most, so if you print the models in another bigger scale it can only be nicer.
* Parameters used : Ultimaker 2 Printer / Layer Height : 0.2mm / Shell thickness : 0.8 mm / Infill : 25% / Print speed : 40 mm/s
Pledge at least one euro and get our gratitude and 2 stone-textured 25mm bases
This small house is set in 3 parts, easily stackable, the join being hidden in the beams (darker parts on the picture). You can mount it as one or two storey house. This is the house you can see on the three first pictures, above.
Moreover we offer you here a calvary and a typical alsatian "Empire" bench. More details here (wiki link, but in french only, sorry)
This house is done the same way as the small one, simply in a bigger version (roughly x1.5 as you can see with the windows).
The small house varants is compatible with the small timbered-house #1, allowing to do 2 one-storey and 4 two-storey houses altogether.
This is a very well known house in Strasbourg we modelised here. You can also mount and un-mount it very easily as the external beams are attached to the superior storey, and encircle the inferior storey. For the best printing, simply print them upside/down ;)
We fell in love with a house photography and went far away from Alsace up to Normandy. It still has in common the timbered-style, and we hope you do love the model as we do.
As it is our biggest pledge, we offer you a small chapel, and obviously, it gives you all the stretchgoals !
To see more pictures of the models, prints (some even painted by your servant) and our inspiration sources, please simply follow the links :
And here are the long awaited Stretchgoals :
with this stretchgoal, we'll texture the floors with both (wood or tiles) options for each model
A typical farm portal, and some farm wall sections
This is the smallest church in Alsace, located in Uttenhoffen, barely bigger than a (big) house, but in this way it will fit easily on any table ;)
My very own town town hall, a beautiful building.
A Medieval tower, inspired by 3 tower seen in Strasbourg city center, mixed with towers with timbered and "all wood" upper parts as we can see in so many places in Alsace and Europe. And we add a defensive wall section.
Some optionnal shutters for the Eclusier House, to glue, straight or not ;)
Five statue pedestals (as seen here). Add your own miniature on top for a nice statue (equestrial or not). At usual scale, but very easy to scale up or down to match any size.
Two fountains : a very basic one and a more elaborate (without the statue but with the pedestal, the same way as SG#7)
Cross and tombstones, to let you do your own cemetery !
Chairs, tables, wardrobes do give some life to your internal parts
Oriel, an external extension to glue to the existing houses for more diversity on your table (model may differ from picture, we need to make sure it fits). We will prepare a corner version as seen, and cut it to have a straight version, for even more diversity.
A new ground floor for the Eclusier House
Another tower, inspired from the wonderful Riquewihr (a fortified town) Dolder door
Risks and challenges
All the 3D-models sold are ready and have been printed for testing purpose. They will be sent to you as soon as the campaign ends.
The stretch goal models might take some additionnal time to be sent.
