WE HAVE RELEASED A FREE SAMPLES PACK HERE! TEST AND TRY!
Thunder Chrome 3: Highway to Castle Painskull is our latest development in 3D printable scenery. This campaign is to fund a full new range of modular pieces inspired in an Alien/Gothic culture. Based on the tabs/slots system we developed for Thunder Chrome 2, with Castle Painskull we have put at use every piece of knowledge we have gained in our two previous campaigns. We have already sculpted and printed a part of the range but we need your help to complete it and make it truly awesome.
The four M's
The key to the Thunder Chrome philosophy are the four M's. The first M is for Modular, and implies that you can combine any floor, roof and wall as you wish depending on your needs. Since there is no need to glue those pieces, you can remix them in different configurations from game to game. For this campaign we have developed a new catwalk system that enhances the modularity making the options virtually endless.
The second M stands for Memorable, as we design our models to be truly unique and to stand out from the plethora of other 3D printable models in the market. As it is our habit, during the campaign a series of Memorable buildings will (hopefully) be unlocked as stretch goals, so be ready for some awesomeness!
The third M means Mad. And we use it to represent our inspiration for each project. We drink from many sources and put it all in every campaign, so expect to find little homages to classics in literature, movies and general culture.
The last M is for Mold-breaker. Our models have some truly unique characteristics. Some of the doors can be opened and some walls can be broken in-game, which means that the gameplay can change accordingly. Imagine you shoot at a wall and for once that wall breaks, leaving exposed the coward hiding behind it!
Build whatever you need
The greatest asset in this campaign is the limitless possibilities you will be able to build with the same pieces. In the pictures below you can see some configurations.
Catwalks, lots of catwalks
And of course, our newly designed catwalk system allows you to build labyrinthine corridors with interconnected multi-level buildings.

Spread the Faith pledge -350€/400$-
For the first time, we are offering printing and selling license for our ranges. The printing license for each of our ranges costs 350 euros/400 dollars and lets you print and sell printed versions of our designs for the course of an entire natural year. After that, you will no longer be able to sell printed versions of our models unless we renew the license.
This license does not allow you to share or modify our files in any way, neither to cast physical versions of our models.
After the campaign you will receive a questionnaire where you can specify which range you are pledging for. If you are interested in more than one license just introduce the corresponding amount when pledging.
Thunder Chrome 1: post apocalyptic range
Thunder Chrome 2: sci-fi range
Thunder Chrome 3: Gothic/alien range
As usual with us, we have planned loads of stretch goals to be unlocked during the campaign. Remember that besides regular stretch goals, each 10k we will unlock a special Memorable model! As of now, there are more than 30 stretch goals planned, but of course we are open for more! Here is the first part of the list; let's unlock those bastards and keep the range growing!!!

Risks and challenges
This is our third Kickstarter and by now we have developed a smooth workflow. We have delivered the previous two on time and we are always willing to hear our backers. We have sculpted and tested a small portion of the range, and it works flawlessly, since it is based in our TC2 modular system, so sculpting the rest of it will not be a problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
