The Elemental Village Grows

In mid-2016, Dicey Ventures launched a new line of tabletop terrain, the Elemental Village. 

Available as STL files and able to be printed on any home 3D printer, the Elemental Village serves as a gateway for creators and hobby enthusiasts to begin constructing the tabletop environments that they want, at the sizes and in the quantities they want. 

It is now time to begin the next phase of the Elemental Village project. 

First, we have a brand new model for you, coming from the popular Earth element, we are proud to introduce the Brewery:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Earth Brewery is designed and modeled to fit in with the existing Elemental Village pieces and kicks off Wave Two of the Elemental Village models, which will be released throughout 2017. 

From the Screen to the Table

Concurrent to the release of the Earth Brewery, Dicey Ventures Studios is also launching a new service that we call "We'll Print it for You!".

Through We'll Print it for You! we are happy to offer for the first time a service that lets those of you without access to a 3D printer the ability to order and receive physical prints of your favorite Elemental Village terrain models. 

We are hoping that this service allows even more fans of our cartoony and whimsical village to partake in growing the Global Elemental Village and tabletop and chibi communities. 

We will release more details on the full service in the coming months, with the Earth Brewery Kickstarter serving as the pilot program for the full service. 

The Waves

Because this is a pilot program, it will be a very limited run of physical Earth Brewery prints that will release and ship in three waves across December, January, and February respectively. 

December - This will be a limited Wave that will ship in time for Christmas delivery. It is the riskiest Wave due to the short time frame, but the risk lies mostly in making sure that all Backers who back this Wave are able to get us their information in a timely manner. The model production is not the risky part. 

January - This is the first regular production Wave for the Earth Brewery, which will ship in January 2017. There are more slots in the January and February Waves than in the December Wave. 

February - This is third and final Wave in the Earth Brewery Kickstarter. After this wave, you can still purchase additional prints of the Earth Brewery along with the rest of the Elemental Village once the We'll Print it for You program launches, shortly after the fulfillment of this Kickstarter. 

The Tiers

Below you can see what you will be able to get within each Tier of the Kickstarter. This one is pretty simple, as it concentrates completely on the Earth Brewery and its physical production Waves. 

 

 

 

Add Ons

ELEMENTAL VILLAGE BASE SET

The Brewery is going to get mighty lonely if it's the only Elemental Village model on your table. To help fix that, we're giving our Kickstarter Backers early and exclusive access to the We'll Print that for You! program, months before the service is set to launch!

You can add-on any of the ten element models from the Base Set. Just look below for your favorite models, add up what you want, and add it to your Pledge!

Our Backers get priority printing for anything purchased through the Kickstarter and Pledge Manager, so jump ahead in the queue and get your order in before all the rest. 

STL (3D Printable) FILES

The Earth Brewery STL files are available as a $10 Add-On for any of the Reward Levels, even "The Brewery Basics" level, should you want to purchase a set to share with a friend. 

Stretch Goals

$1,500 - Each Backer who pledges to receive a physical Earth Brewery will also receive a FREE Water Dwelling printed model! Also, each Backer who pledges to receive a digital STL file of the Brewery will receive a FREE Water Dwelling STL file!

Risks and challenges

The riskiest part of this Kickstarter's plan is the Christmas delivery of the limited early production wave.

This will be mitigated in two ways:

1. More than one printer. We will be using more than one 3D printer to print out the physical models. This helps mitigate the machine factor of the Kickstarter, adding redundancy to the process and allowing us to print the early production models while the Kickstarter is still going on.

2. Timely Backer replies. The Backers who back the Christmas delivery Tier will be getting their surveys as soon as the Kickstarter funds have been deposited. It will be crucial to the successful and timely fulfillment of that Tier that every Backer replies to the survey no later than the date given to them at that time.
