Reviews

"The designs they do are well thought out and easy to print"

TabletopgamesUK

"I'm really loving this terrain. There's loads of really cool stuff available for a whole multitude of games"

The Dark Artisan

"What I think looks most interesting is the modular concept that look easy to use and very handy, as it should make it possible to build quite a lot of different buildings with a modest investment."

TC:2 is a huge range of fully modular Sci-Fi scenery developed to be 3D printed. If you are into wargames or roleplaying games and you own or have access to a 3D printer, then you have come to the right place. At the end of our last campaign our backers voted our next range to be Sci Fi, and we like being true to our word. So here we present you

 

Each pledge level gives you access to a number of STL files that you can print as many times as you need, which means endless possibilities for combinations (and saves you a LOT of money).

Measurements and printing volumes

This time we have designed a system of walls, floors and roofs that you can combine at will to create any futuristic city you may need for your wargames. Each wall measures aprox. 9cm long x 6cm tall (18cm x 6cm for double walls, floors and roofs) so they fit most printing volumes.

Besides the modular system we want to design a massive range of extras to help you dress your city. As such, you can expect fountains, sewers, urban furniture (streetlamps, benches, cables, trees, etc.), urban floors and anything you can imagine an need to build your gaming table.

And of course we have our Memorable buildings, unique models that make the center piece of any gaming table. This time we want our Memorables to be modular, so we will offer you different options to customize them: optional roofs, attachments and details to make them even more awesome.

Modular modularity with the modular modules!!!

Thunder Chrome is defined by our 3 M: Modular, Memorable and Mad. Well, we have added a 4th M to our proposal: Mold-breaker!!!

Modular

There are two things to have in mind when speaking about modularity. The first one, modularity is not just combining catwalks and platforms. Full modularity involves building alleys, stackable buildings and multi-level cities, and we offer you that here.

The second thing to have in mind is how modular a model is. We have gone a step further with our models and this time we offer floors, walls and roofs so you can combine all of them at will. For this we have developed a simple system of tabs and slots that hold the structures together to ensure they don't fall apart mid game. This, of course, lets you play outside and inside the buildings just by removing the roofs.

Memorable

As usual, we have unique buildings that will stand out in any Sci Fi city such as the Armory, included in the Mega-city One pledge. This time we want our Memorables to be modular too, so expect them to be easily customizable. You can print some more components and decide to make them bigger (or smaller), change roofs, doors and all the possible options we can come up with.

More Memorable buildings will unlock as stretch goals, so be ready for more awesomeness!!!

Mad

As a Thunder Chrome backer you must always look for hidden easter eggs. May be you can locate little homages to Sci Fi history, be it a movie or a book. Just pay attention, you'll be surprised!

Mold-breaker

This time we have really pushed the technology forward, and after lots of testing we want to offer you unique features in our models. The two main characteristics we have been able to achieve are: breakable in-game buildings and sliding doors/windows. Until now, no scenery offered by any company had this two features included. They really change the options during gameplay, as for the first time the environments change!

The ultimate pledge. Here is the real game changer. We include our awesome breakable walls and roofs which let you simulate in game damage to structures. We also include here the sliding doors and windows, opening new options for gameplay.

This pledge level includes the Armory, a huge Memorable building to act as a center piece to any game table. The Armory is also modular in its design, so you will be able to build it as big as you need it, just by combining roofs, floors and walls. It comes with twin cannons to defend it from any possible menace.

This pledge gives you access to all stretch goals unlocked in this campaign.

We have planned a massive amount of stretch goals to unlock during the campaign. There are three main categories here: on one side, we will unlock packs of extra roofs, walls, and floors for the modular system to give you even more options when building your structures. Then we also want to unlock extras for you to use as cover, objective markers or just as decor for your cities. Lastly, the Memorable buildings. We will be unlocking them as the campaign advances! Mind that the stretch goals are still early development, we will show concepts and early designs as they unlock.

 

TO ADD YOUR ADD ONS JUST UPDATE YOUR PLEDGE BY ADDING THE TOTAL AMOUNT FOR THE ADD ONS CHOSEN. AT THE END OF THE CAMPAIGN WE'LL SEND YOU A SURVEY WHERE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SPECIFY WHICH ADD ONS YOU WANT.

The add ons shop allows you to select specific models that will make your tables even more unique. These packs have been thought with two goals in mind. The first one, to be practical elements in your games. Many of them can be used as cover to hide, to block passages or to climb. The second goal is that they look great. 

We have included special bundles with the models from our previous campaign, as some of you have asked for them. These bundles are heavy discounted over the retail price so now it's a good chance to get them. 

We will continue to design Add Ons so this list is going to grow along with the campaign. Below you have an explanation of each add on just in case you have doubts. 

ADD ONS EXPLAINED

THE SKINS: Each skin is composed by 16 different models that expand the modular system and share a common style among them. One of them is GOTHIC/INDUSTRIAL, perfectly suitable for Warhammer 40K or any other gothic/industrial setting. The other skin is of ARABIC inspiration, and works great for the Haqquislam faction from Infinity or any other mid-eastern themed table.

The models included in each skin are the following: - 4 short walls - 2 long walls - 2 tall walls (special walls measuring 12cm to build taller structures suitable for Cathedral-like buildings or Mosque-like buildings) - 2 interior floors - 2 short roofs - 1 long roof - 1 terrace - several small details (arches, supports, etc.) to add Gothic or Arabic flavor to the new buildings  

THE OBJECTIVES PACK: A pack designed specifically to be used as objectives in any wargaming table. Five models with textured bases (from 30mm to 50mm) that include a console, two ammo boxes (one open, one closed) and two more models still to be decided (we are open to suggestions in the comments!).

THE WATCH TOWER: a modular tower as tall as you need it to be.

THE CARGO PACK: a pack of five (5) DIFFERENT models, 2 big containers, 3 small ones, to use as decor and cover in your tables. The image shows two variants but in the end the five of them will be different.

THUNDER CHROME 1 BUNDLES

THE MEMORABLES PACK: a pack which includes our seven (7) memorable buildings from our previous campaign. You can go here for more images.

THE EXTRAS PACK:  a pack with more than thirty (30) models which include barrels, crates, obstacles, electric towers, machinery, a toxic pond and our awesome elevated road. You can see them all here.

THE MODULAR PACK: a pack with all the models (more than 20) from our Post Apocalyptic modular system. See them here.

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter and there are some things we have learned from the first one, specially regarding delivery dates. In Thunder Chrome 1 we managed to deliver all our models in time, but that required a massive amount of work from our part (we are still happily married, but it was close). That's why we are stablishing slightly longer delivery dates. This will allow us to complete and test our models in every possible way and ensure you the best possible results.

We have been working on this range for six months now. The modular system has been tested in different RepRap printers and works perfectly. So there are no risks regarding this part of the project.

The Neo Tokio and Mega-City One pledges are early designs and still need a lot of testing, but having the modular system working we only need time to finish sculpting the designs.
