The towering white city of Ethilia is a wonder to behold. Although now quite cosmopolitan its architecture is still very much rooted in the tradition of its original builders, the elves. 

This kickstarter introduces the original buildings of the city in printable .stl format, with each building created for the purpose of 3D printing. This means that all buildings have been fully optimised for supportless printing, and test printed to give you, the gamer, the very best terrain with minimum work.

 All buildings are guaranteed to be fully optimised and test printed. 



All add-ons are available to pledges Homestead and above only.


- £5 / $6.50 - Bolt Thrower Tower Attachment. The bolt thrower attachment will be able to attach to any single height tower from the core bundle as a means of perimeter defences. Can also be used with the standalone tower to make an outpost defence.

- £5 / $6.50 - Grain Store, great to be paired with the Farmhouse or the Homestead with the farming patch. Every farmer needs a place to store their harvested grains.

- £10 / $12.50 - An Ethilian Dice Tower, suitable for all table-top games. Simply put the dice in the top, and the tower will roll the dice for you into a collection tray!

- £10 / $12.50 - Ethilian Street Furniture Pack, to decorate the streets of Ethilia with market stalls, Lamp posts, signs, benches and more!

 - £10 / $12.50 - Ethilian Observatory, perfect for any Astral mages wanting to expand their knowledge.

- £10 / $12.50 - Ethilian Farmhouse, separate to the added farming patch added to the core project, the Ethilian Farmhouse will be housing all kinds of crops and animals ready for when the winter comes. Pairs perfectly with the Grain store.

- £25 / $32 - The Elder Council, where the Elders gather to discuss the politics, and the future of the City of Ethilia.

- £50 / $63.50 - All in. All of the above add-ons at a discounted price.


A brief guide on how to obtain these add-ons:

- Go to the Ethilia Kickstarter page and press the Manage Your Pledge button.

- Increase your pledge in the Pledge Amount box by the total of the add-ons you wish to add.

- At the end of the project you will be sent a survey where you can explain which add-on you would like for the amount you have added.


These add-ons are expected to be delivered at the same time as the core STL files of the Kickstarter.

 The Tower and Walls that protect the great city of Ethilia. 

These walls have been modelled for modular connection, meaning you can have any length of wall, any number of towers, big or small, and with any angled connection so you can set any perimeter you want.

Since childhood, gaming has been a gigantic part of our lives. Table-top gaming specifically, has always brought friends and family together and is always a joy to be involved in. That is why Black Magic Pixels was formed, to give back to the table-top gaming community with high quality, easy to print scenery that is guaranteed to spice up any game. Although this is just the beginning for us, we wish to continue strong into the future, with making more high quality scenery from all kinds of different genres, races, styles and more to offer a huge variety of printable scenery to use in any situation. With your help and support, we can make that a reality.

Risks and challenges

Although this is our first project, we have compiled a risk register and have mitigated identified risks where we can. Test prints have been carried out, not just on the initial complete designs but also on small areas of the more complex buildings to determine practicality for printing. All files will be distributed as digital files. As with all digital projects, there are risks that computer equipment or systems fail. We have instigated a back up routine to regularly preserve all progress on the project. Some buildings have been completed and we are confident of our delivery dates for these. Reaching stretch goals may lead to a phased delivery of further buildings. As with all small businesses we rely on the skills and creativity of individuals in the business. There is always a risk that illness or serious injury will cause a significant problem with delivery of the project. This is not something we can control or mitigate for but the team are currently fit and healthy!
