About


Fire and Sails are an 18th century Wargame of naval battles, with 1:650 scale miniatures designed for 3D printing (FDM Printers Optimized).  Starting from a historical documentation process, we have worked on an interactive design process to achieve the maximum level of detail that a 3d FDM printer can offer, getting quality miniatures that are easy to print.  

On the other hand, we wanted to develop our own game rules (although the ships and scenography are compatible with other Wargames of the age of sails).

One of the problems of  Wargames is the amount of money that needs to be invested acquiring the miniatures. With this campaign, we want to launch a game that with a cheap 3d desktop printer, players can create as many miniatures as they want.

On the other hand, we also want to get funding for the creation of a web forum to create a community of 3d printable board game players and also get funding to continue with the future development and research of printable board games that we have in mind.

There are nine kinds of ships, eight armed ships and a merchant ship. The ships have been designed to be printed by parts: Hull of the ship, Bowsprit, Masts with sails (split in two halves).

We have included historical elements such as the Fort of San Marcos (St. Augustine, Florida) and the Fort of San Gerónimo del Boquerón (San Juan, Puerto Rico). Apart from the forts, the reward includes a collection of houses, islands, lighthouses, walls, dikes and other modular elements that you can combine to create a variety of scenarios to play. The fortified walls, apart from fulfilling an aesthetic function, are also part of the Fire and Sail game.  These may fire at enemy ships and may also be damaged.


In Fire and Sails Rule Book, players will find a series of rules to simulate naval combats according to the age of sails. During the game you can perform simple actions (such as shooting different types of ammunition, boarding, capturing enemy ships...) and advanced actions (repair damage, extinguish fires, anchoring…).  

Players will have to deal with the weather conditions and particularities of each ships during the course of the game. 

To play, the game incorporates a series of templates, tokens and cards to facilitate the game.

Apart from this, numerous " stretch goals " are wanting to be unlocked to show off at your gaming table. The unlocked strech goals will allow the game to expand, adding new ships and elements to the scenography.




Risks and challenges

All models of the base set are printed in 3d and mounted. During the campaign we will continue to work with the stretching objectives unlocked.
