Thunder Chrome: 3d printable post apocalyptic scenery

6.239 €

For a wargamer there is only one thing better than a table full of painted miniatures: a table full of painted miniatures running, jumping and hiding behind buildings, fences and corpses. The problem with wargame scenery is that it's either great and expensive, or it's "not so great" and cheap (remember cereal boxes?). We at Thunder Chrome want to offer you the chance to fill up your tables with amazingly detailed post apocalyptic scenery at a ridiculously cheap price. We want you to say goodbye to balsa wood and glue. Say hello to 3D printing, say hello to Thunder Chrome.

Versión en Castellano

Solo hay una cosa más atrayente para un jugador de wargames que una mesa repleta de miniaturas: una mesa repleta de miniaturas corriendo, saltando y escondiéndose detrás de edificios, obstáculos, vallas y cadáveres. El problema con la escenografía para wargames es que o es muy cara y luce genial, o es muy barata y luce menos genial (ejem ejem, cartón corrugado). Desde Thunder Chrome queremos ofreceros la posibilidad de llenar vuestras mesas de escenografía detallada y de alta calidad, pero que hacerlo no os cueste los ahorros de un año. Queremos que digáis adiós a las cajas de cereales medio pintadas, a la madera de balsa y a la cola blanca. Decid hola a la impresión en 3D. Decid hola a Thunder Chrome.

Design your own APOCALYPSE!

We are fans of Mad Max and everything related to worlds devastated by atomic wars, machine risings and zombie breakouts (all at once, if possible), so we want to present you a funding campaign to design a full set of buildings that have been torn apart by a disaster (pick the one you prefer). Once they are designed we will send you the STL files so you can print them in your own 3D printers.

The three M's of Thunder Chrome

MODULAR: as wargamers, we understand the need to have different scenery pieces so you can give each game what it really needs. That's why we have decided to give you all the modularity you could wish for. You will be able to combine our designs in any way you need, you could make them multi-level, stack them or divide them, it's really up to you. You can print each model as many times as you like. Our goal is to design scenery that you have never seen before on a table, with plenty of open spaces to add furniture, multiple exits and many options to customize your tables.

MEMORABLE: any post apocalyptic town needs some special buildings that stand out from the rest. We call them the "Memorables". We want to design those special structures that have been in our minds for ages: the workshop, the abandoned theatre, an oil rig, even the mythic THUNDERDOME from Mad Max! All those designs are wandering around our drawing tables, waiting to be converted into 3D printable files!

MAD: Apocalypse means crazy shit going on, weirdos acting strange, people fighting, killing and eating other people, and this will be reflected in our models. If you look closer, you will be able to find easter eggs and homages in all our designs.

¡Diseña tu propio apocalipsis! 

En Thunder Chrome somos fanáticos de los mundos arrasados por la guerras atómicas, las rebeliones de las máquinas y los apocalipsis zombies (todo a la vez, a ser posible). Cualquier cosa que haya casi exterminado a la humanidad nos sirve, con tal de que podamos jugar con ello. Por eso os proponemos una campaña de financiación que nos permita diseñar un buen puñado de edificios que han sido devastados por una catástrofe (elegid la que más os guste) y con los que podáis hacer que cada partida sea distinta.

Las 3M de Thunder Chrome

MODULAR: como jugadores de wargames, entendemos la necesidad de disponer de diferentes elementos de escenografía para poder darle a cada partida lo que necesita. Por eso hemos pensado daros toda la modularidad que necesitéis, para que podáis combinar los edificios como os dé la gana. Podréis superponerlos, hacerlos multinivel, dividirlos, en definitiva, queremos que podáis adaptar la escenografía a las necesidades de cada partida y de cada juego. 

MEMORABLE: toda ciudad post apocalíptica precisa de esos edificios que llaman la atención, esos que dejan una huella imborrable, nosotros los llamamos los “memorables”. Queremos diseñar aquellos edificios que toda la vida (n)os han vuelto locos. El taller mecánico, el cine abandonado, la torre de petróleo…y por qué no ¡la Thunderdome! La famosa Cúpula del Trueno donde Mad Max se enfrentó al Master Blaster en Mad Max 3. 

MAJARETA: Apocalipsis es sinónimo de raritos haciendo locuras, gente peleando, matando y comiéndose unos a otros, y un montón de cosas extrañas más. Queremos que ese espíritu de Mad Max se refleje en nuestros modelos. Si observáis con detalle descubriréis en nuestros modelos muchos homenajes y “easter eggs”.

SHOWCASE

Here you can see some of the printing tests we have been doing since the beginning of the campaign. All this is considered work in progress, but as you can see, the level of detail is quite good!

But, what do I get!

Ok, ok, we cut the crap. Right below you can see some of the work in progress. Our goal is that you can print a full post apocalyptic city, with watch towers, shacks, walkways, handrails, ruined buildings, etc. In order to do that, we want to design a multi component system of modular sections. Each section can work on its own, or can be a part of a bigger structure. Each of the modules will have different openings so your minis can walk and shoot through them, as well as floors and roofs. All the modules will be carefully texturized imitating materials like asbestos, wood, metal and planks. For each pledge level you will receive a number of different modules to print and combine; more details on the PLEDGE LEVELS section below.

Vale vale, cortamos la cháchara. Debajo podéis ver algunos conceptos en los que estamos trabajando. Nuestro objetivo es que podáis montar una ciudad post apocalíptica completa, con murallas, torres de vigilancia, chabolas, pasarelas y edificios emblemáticos. Para ello hemos pensado en un sistema multicomponente de compartimentos modulares que os permitirán montar los edificios según os convenga. Por cada nivel de recompensa (20, 40 o 60 euros) recibiréis un número determinado de módulos y estructuras combinables. Para más detalle consultad el apartado PLEDGE LEVELS más abajo.

Besides the modular system we want to give you some special buildings that will make your gaming tables look awesome: the MEMORABLES. For each pledge level (except the first one) you will receive a minimum of one Memorable building ready for printing. Here you can see an initial design for the Memorable included in the MASTER BLASTER pledge level: the Hot Rod Garage.

Además del sistema modular, queremos daros algunos edificios completos que no pueden faltar en ninguna ciudad arrasada. Lo único que tendréis que hacer es encender vuestra impresora, cargar el archivo STL y dejarla que haga todo el trabajo. Por cada nivel de recompensa exceptuando el primero recibiréis como mínimo un edificio Memorable listo para imprimir. A medida que se desbloqueen Stretch Goals, esta cantidad aumentará. Aquí podéis ver el diseño inicial para el Hot Rod Garage, el Memorable incluido en el nivel de recompensa Master Blaster.

As you can see, the Memorables will be full of details, props and accessories to customize them. 

Scale

We want to design our models for 28-32mm wargames but nothing prevents you from trying different scales once you have the models. We have made some tests for 15mm and we can tell you that some details are gone (rivets, screws and some wood textures) but the models still look quite amazing.

Versión en Castellano

Pretendemos diseñar nuestros modelos para wargames de 28-32mm pero nada os impide intentar diferentes escalas cuando los imprimáis. Si se reduce la escala algunos detalles se perderán inevitablemente (los remaches, alguna textura de madera) pero aún así serán edificios impresionantes.

Level 1 RICTUS ERECTUS - 1€

At this level you will have our most sincere gratitude. May you shine in your way to Valhalla. We will witness.

Besides, you will have access to the add-ons shop when it's open.

Level 2 MASTER BLASTER - 20€

 

This is the basic level. You will be granted with the necessary STL files to print three compoundable modules (10cm x 10cm x 8cm) with its floors and roofs. The modules are different from one another, although we will keep the same style for all of them. They will have one, two and three openings so you can print and combine as many as you wish. They are also designed with a simple system to stack them up and to keep roofs and floors in place.

You will also receive the necessary files to print the Hot Rod Garage, our first Memorable building. The Garage is a fantastic piece of scenery with a removable roof and an inner catwalk that will give character to your games.

You will, of course, have access to the add-ons shop as well as to all the stretch goals for the MASTER BLASTER level.

Level 3 IRONBAR - 40€

With this level your town will begin to look like a real shanty town from the wasteland. You will receive all that is included in the MASTER BLASTER level (including any stretch goals).

You will also receive the necessary files to print catwalks, supports and handrails to combine the different modules and raise them up to create multi-level connected structures.

You will also be granted with the second of our Memorable buildings: the Emilius Theatre. This is a two-floor building with removable roof and a fire exit. The upper floor is in ruins and offers lots of opportunities for your models to interact with.

You will have access to the add-ons shop as well as to all the stretch goals for the IRONBAR level.

Level 4 LORD HUMUNGUS - 60€

This is THE REAL THING. You will receive all the files included in the previous levels (stretch goals included).

You will also receive three new modules but this time they will be 16cm x 10cm x8cm. They will be compoundable with the MASTER BLASTER modules so you will be able to create larger and more varied combinations of modules. Again, each of the three modules will be different, and they will have different exits and holes. We will also include the necessary handrails, supports and catwalks for the new modules.

In this level you will also receive the most amazing building we will design for this campaign. I will be a three floor building specially designed to be the centre of any wasteland city. We are considering different options, it may be a crashed plane or a part of a ship that for some reason has ended up in the middle of the town. We will give you more information on this as the project advances, but rest assured that we will try to make it the most awesome piece of printable scenery ever.

You will have access to the add-ons shop as well as to all the stretch goals for the LORD HUMUNGUS level.

Level 5 ORGANIC MECHANIC - 700€

Prusa i3 PTS
Prusa i3 PTS

This pledge level is for the ones of you who are interested in acquiring a 3D printer together with our models. It includes the fantastic printer Prusa i3 PTS with shipment to any country in Europe, all the files from the LORD HUMUNGUS level, and an exclusive model printed in high quality resin designed only for this pledge. The Prusa i3 PTS is an evolution from the original Prusa i3 with modifications that make it unique. Here you have its main features and advantages:

  • Plug and play, no assembly needed! 
  •  Printing volume 20x20x25 Maximum layer height 50 microns (0,05mm) Heatbed, your models will stick to it for sure! 
  •  Exclusive extruder PTSOne, developed by the people at Printhatshit, lighter and more precise than most extruders, it can print any kind of filament in the market 
  • Metallic pulleys instead of the usual (and weaker) plastic pulleys 
  •  Fully expandable: possibility to add a second extruder, upgrade the bed to a bigger one, etc. 
  •  Shipment included in the pledge price! Yeah, SHIPMENT INCLUDED!!! 
  • Full technical support by the people at printhatshit.com. They will answer any questions and help you with any issue regarding the printer.

Here you can see it at work. And here more information.

WARNING: This pledge level is for our European backers only. We are really sorry for our International backers but for now we can't find the way to make an affordable shipment out of Europe.

Our intention is to design the files planned in the pledge levels, but if by any chance the campaign is successful, we want to give you more for your support. Here is the list of stretch goals. This list is in no way closed, and if you want more you will have more as time goes by.

The add ons shop will allow us to offer you different models and packs to further customize your city. The contents of these packs are yet to be decided, but you can expect machinery packs, embellishment packs and many other models.

If we get here we will design the interiors for our Memorables

If we get here every pledge level (except RICTUS ERECTUS) will receive an extra module. The MASTER BLASTER and IRONBAR levels will get another 10cm x 10cm module with a new design. Furthermore, the LORD HUMUNGUS level will receive another 10cm x 16cm model with a new design. In all cases the modules will have new roofs and floors. 

At 3000 euros all pledge levels (except RICTUS ERECTUS) will receive a new MEMORABLE building. The model is Fat Mat's Eatery, a classic abandoned diner.

At 4000 euros the IRONBAR and LORD HUMUNGUS pledge levels will receive a new MEMORABLE building.

At 5000 euros the LORD HUMUNGUS level backers will receive the THUNDERDOME! Inspired by the amazing fighting cage where Mad Max confronted the Master Blaster in the movie "Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome".

NEW STRETCH GOAL ADDED! At 6000 euros the LORD HUMUNGUS level backers will receive an extra model yet to be designed!

The add ons shop allows you to select specific packs of 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. Here we present you the first batch of Add Ons at 7 euros (8 US dollars) per pack. The elevated road is 12 dollars for our US backers. We will continue to design Add Ons so this list is going to grow weekly!

ADD ON BUNDLE: for 55 euros (62 dollars for US backers) you can get all the add ons included in the campaign! Just adjust your pledge adding 55 euros to your pledge level amount!

The Roofs Complements pack 1 includes five different models to customize the roofs of your models. Two chimneys, a water tank, a box and a ventilation system.

The Roofs Complements pack 2 includes 12 models: 3 different spikes, 3 different wood planks, 3 different metal planks and 3 different asbestos planks to further customize your buildings and modules.

The Machinery pack includes a Generator (8cm x 6,5cm x 7cm, HUGE) and a Compressor (5cm x 2cm x 3cm).

The Obstacles Pack 1 includes two different cable reels (one with cable, one without), three different combinations of pallets and reels and three different combinations of pallets. We will design combinations to be totally different from each other, not just the same elements arranged in different ways.

The Obstacles Pack 2 includes three different combinations of wheels and rims (some with support, some without), three different combinations of oil barrels and wheels and three different combinations of oil barrels. Same here, we will design combinations to be totally different from each other, not just the same elements arranged in different ways.

The Child Park includes four different games where post apocalyptic survivors can still play.

The Picnic Area includes a wooden table with benches, a huge umbrella and two different trash cans, one open and one closed.

The ramen stand is an amazing model to attach to any of our bigger buildings or to use as a stand alone model.

The Elevated Road is the first model we have designed specifically for the Shop. It is a huge model that will let you create a Road that is 10 cm up the ground and it is supported by big rocks and metal bars. You can print it several times and make the road as long as you wish. As the model is quite complex the price is a little higher than regular addons.

To get any of the packs you can adjust your pledge adding the total value of what you want to what you had pledged before. At the end of the campaign we will ask each of you which packs do you want.

In the following weeks we are going to show you printed versions of all of them, but right below you can see the cable reels in their first quick print at 0.2mm.

Why 3D printing?

Because of several reasons. First of them, because 3D printing lets us design any model we can imagine, as easy as that. Second, 3D printing is a constant trial-error process thanks to which we know what we are doing wrong (a lot) and how to fix it in a matter of hours. Third, 3D printing costs are really really really low. A reel of 1kg of ABS or PLA (the two most common materials used in 3D printing) costs around 20 euros, and each reel lets you print dozens of buildings (depending on size and complexity, of course). According to calculations made by people that know a lot more than us, for the cost of a resin building you can print from 10 to 15 buildings, just do the math! Fourth, the level of detail achieved by consumer-oriented 3D printers nowadays is awesome. As proof of that, below you can see (better, behold!) our own designed, printed and painted post apocalyptic shack.

¿Por qué con impresora 3D? 

Por varios motivos. El primero de ellos, porque nos permite diseñar cualquier elemento que podamos imaginar, así de simple. El segundo motivo, la impresión en 3D es un constante proceso de prueba-error gracias al cual sabemos qué estamos haciendo mal (muchas cosas) y cómo corregirlo en cuestión de horas. Tercero, los costes de la impresión en 3D son realmente bajos. Una bobina de filamento de 1kg de ABS o PLA (los materiales más habituales) ronda los 20-25 euros, y con cada bobina se pueden imprimir decenas de edificios. Según cálculos hechos por gente que sabe más que nosotros, por el coste de un edificio de resina se pueden imprimir unos 10-15 edificios en 3D (siempre dependiendo del tamaño y complejidad del diseño). Cuarto, el nivel de detalle que han conseguido las impresoras 3D de nivel usuario a día de hoy es magnífico, y para muestra, debajo podéis ver el espectacular resultado de nuestro primer diseño, la choza.

We want your fuel!

We have been working over the last few months to make sure that our models are exciting but practical. We always keep in mind why are we doing this: so you can have a fantastic set of modular buildings for your post apocalyptic games. We want our models to be easy to print and assemble.

For that we need your support. We want to increase the range of models to build the wildest post apocalyptic town in the wasteland. Every model takes dozens (sometimes hundreds) of hours of work. Since the basic sketches to the final printing test, we work hard so you don't have to. But of course, without your fuel we will not be able to make it happen.

¡Queremos vuestra gasolina! 

Hemos estado trabajando durante los últimos meses para asegurarnos de que nuestros modelos son atractivos a la vez que funcionales, pero nos falta mucho camino por recorrer. Siempre tenemos en mente para qué estamos haciendo esto: para que podáis disponer de un fantástico conjunto modular de escenografía para vuestros juegos post apocalípticos (Punkapocalipse, Eden, o incluso Warhammer 40k). Además, queremos que los modelos sean fáciles de imprimir y que tengan cuantas menos partes mejor.

Pero necesitamos vuestro apoyo para ampliar la gama de edificios y llegar a diseñar la ciudad post apocalíptica más salvaje del yermo. Cada modelo lleva decenas (a veces cientos) de horas de trabajo. Desde los diseños básicos hasta el último test de impresión, trabajamos duro para que vosotros no tengáis que hacerlo. Pero claro, sin vuestra gasolina eso no será posible.

Thunder Chrome is made of two human beings just like you (may be a little more mentally unstable) who have dedicated years of our lives to wargames, videogames, roleplaying games, 3D design, comics and cinema while we should have been studying (HA!). We LOVE George Miller and his fantastic Mad Max universe and we want to reflect that in the most creative way.

David Martínez is a gamer, comic writer, wargame player, 3D designer and many more things, like being the concept artist for the project. Any crazy stuff that we get to print will come from David's drawing table. He is also one of the 3D designers of the project.

Matías Parragués is a wargamer since before the last Ice Age, film teacher, scriptwriter, filmmaker and he is absolutely unable to draw anything. But he is quite apt at 3D designing, so he is the other designer in the project and the Community Manager.

Versión en Castellano

Thunder Chrome lo conformamos dos seres humanos como vosotros (tal vez algo más desequilibrados) que hemos dedicado gran parte de nuestras vidas a jugar a videojuegos, rol, wargames, diseño 3D, cómics, y demás cuando deberíamos haber estado estudiando (¡JA!). Tenemos en muy alta estima al señor George Miller su Mad Max y queremos reflejar eso de la forma más creativa posible.

David Martínez es fan de los videojuegos, lector ávido de cómics, jugador de wargames, dibujante, diseñador 3D y un largo etcétera de cosas entre las cuales se encuentran ser el artista conceptual del proyecto. Todas las locuras que consigamos diseñar habrán pasado antes por sus hábiles lápices y tintas. Además, es uno de los dos diseñadores 3D de Thunder Chrome.

Matías Parragués es wargamer desde antes de la última Edad de Hielo, profesor de audiovisuales, guionista, director de cine y es absolutamente incapaz de dibujar nada. Pero el modelado en 3D no se le da mal así que es el otro diseñador 3D del proyecto y el Community Manager.

Riesgos y desafíos

What can go wrong?
The only thing that can go wrong is that the designs give some kind of trouble during the printing. But that's why we have been making printing tests for months and we still are. We want to give you the certainty that our designs are absolutely printer friendly, easy to assemble and practical. We keep working day after day to give you the best post apocalyptic scenery ever created.

¿Qué puede salir mal?
Lo único que puede salir mal es que los diseños tengan problemas a la hora de la impresión, pero por eso estamos haciendo pruebas constantemente. Nos aseguraremos de que nuestros modelos son “printer friendly” y que no tendréis problemas a la hora de imprimirlos y montarlos. Seguimos trabajando cada día para ofreceros la mejor escenografía postapocalíptica que se ha visto en una mesa.
