Welcome to the new ambitious crosslances project! An adventure in the world of the undead, an entire gothic style cemetery awaits you for your adventures, ideal for horror, fantasy and historical campaigns, and for the scenarios of your wargames. All enriched with zombies, skeletons and other monsters.
they are not normal miniatures that you buy and put on a shelf, they are miniatures for your 3D printer! By buying this, you will receive .stl files to print miniatures directly by your own 3D printers, while cozy at home!
-if you already own a 3D printer, it's cheap and also funny, you will print unique and incredible quality models. -If you don't own a 3D printer, it can be an opportunity to buy one! Costs for a printer are already low and accessible to anyone. You can still use a service like: 3D hub, shapeways, or any other that the net are crowding. -No shipping cost! Anywhere in the universe, you just download the files and print! -You can print it as many times as you want, for you and your friends. -You can decide any printing dimension, from miniatures to real size titan sculptures! - You can use these miniature for other games, as proxyes in games like ninth age or fantasy football.
PLEASE NOTE - This Kickstarter is for digital files (STLs) to make all these items on your own home 3D printer - these are not physical goods **
What would a cemetery be without a horde of undead? Skeletons, ghouls, zombies, ghosts and mummies in this pack of miniatures will make your adventures unique and scary! In addition we have kept an eye on a game that in recent years has often accompanied us in our work, we are talking about fantasy football, in fact these miniatures are not just monsters but can perfectly compose a team of undead for the famous game with the oval ball!
For these highly detailed miniatures we recommend a sla or dlp resin printer, but you can get excellent results even with fdm printers, our most expert customers have made really extraordinary prints in these years!

Here is the real news, it is the first time that we try to create scenarios, and we hope you enjoy it. The idea comes from our summer holiday in Edinburgh, a beautiful city! But above all, rich in cemeteries and picturesque churches, for fans of wargames and role-playing games, it was normal to think: "Hey, do you know how it would be to set an adventure in a place like that??", So we got to work and after several months , and print test, we are pleased to present you our scenic package, "the gates of the cemetery"!
We have taken in over many photos that worked as a reference for our sculptures: you can find them on our amateur photo page:
tell us what you think of our parallel passion!
All the scenarios reported here have been tested and printed with a very economic Tevo Tornado in our possession, and without the aid of any support. The painting of these scenarios was extremely simple: a black background spray, and a dry brush with acrilic white represented 90% of the work, to complete the presentation: some small washing and retouching by hand as a finishing touch.
For these scenarios, a fdm print is suggested.
Taken from the impetus of sculpting we found ourselves sometimes creating elements that we can't categorize as miniature or scenic. These are three very particular sculptures:
Two monumental tombs
Very complex to be printed with traditional filament printers, at least without significantly increasing the size, we suggest to realize them with Sla / Dlp printers so as not to lose part of the details.
This wagon is designed to be printed with filament printers, as those with more experience and a good 3D printer will not need any additional support.. The horses are designed in fact to facilitate even the filament print, the wagon instead has been divided into several parts and then be able to reassemble.
As already happened in the past, our stretch goals are not outlined at the beginning, in fact during the campaign it is usual for us to listen to you, backers, to create new sculptures during the campaign according to your suggestions. Obviously it is not always easy to please everyone, but we do our best. We have therefore set only a few Stretch goals at the moment, but they can change during the campaign, so we are open to your proposals that you can see added to your pledge.
We have decided to immediately release the stretch goal of € 1600.
From the pre-campaign feedback we understood that it was essential to have these alternatives.
We did not know where to put this sculpture, miniature or scenic?
So we decided to launch this little idea.
The mimic - coffin will be available for all backers, even those who put 1 euro only, and will be available immediately, we have an update done with the download link reserved for backers only.
(you can find it in the update section)
So you can already start to have fun with our work.
Another small update for our beloved backers!
We followed one of your suggestions and we created an alternative piece for the crypts.
Ruined and partially collapsed roofs, to give a more sinister appearance to your graveyard.
Still a small addition, following one of your suggestions here is our interpretation of the nightmare.
Some simple elements but I think they will please many of you.
of the ruins of a circular building.
And broken tombstones.
One more miniature for you.
A necromancer or an exorcist if you prefer, we really like this miniature, what do you think?
A funeral scene, with the coffin about to be dropped into the grave, while the second is the same tomb a few nights later! but with surprise!
A bell fallen to the ground coming from some kind of abandoned bell tower.
As you suggested we created a chapel, which can be used where space is not sufficient to insert the cathedral with its bell tower.
A small bridge in our usual style.
We did not want to make a very large bridge with buildings above or very long.
We thought that our sculptures are ideal for building wargame and exterior scenarios, and we believe it is extremely difficult to place a large bridge together with all our other sculptures.
So we made a bridge that crosses a ditch or a stream.
A plague doctor who wanders in the cemetery with bad intentions!
The house of the watchman, we have created this very versatile and compact house that you can easily insert in your scenarios.
So here is the last sculpture for you that we decided to add: the requests were many, many beautiful ideas, but in the end we decided to make a well, we consider it a characteristic element that is good with the rest of the scenics in over a medium-sized piece that you can easily place within your landscapes.
Crosslances studios is founded by 3 artists and their commons passion for the world of games. Students at the Comics courses in Florence, made by the greebo games sculptures, they approached the world of miniatures. It has actually became a revelant studio in the world of miniatures and digital miniatures prototyping. Our products can be found in many places, we had collaborations with: Labmasu, Megalith Godslayer, Hidden Dreams, Minuteman miniatures, Fireforge , and many others
Risks and challenges
Crosslances is a dynamic studio researching for innovation, our challenge is to renew ourselves by renewing our opening game, hoping it could give us a good lift.
We hope the world will always be more prepared to our little revolution: bringing 3D printable games into houses. Risks for customers are minimal, with a good preparation with your own 3D printer, it will impossible to have problems.
Biggest difficulties are found in supports positioning, in fact printing quality of complex objects can be improved wit adequate supports.
