About this project

PLEASE NOTE: 

  • A starter 3D printer begins around $220 (see F.A.Q.)
  • Each pledge level includes all previous pledge levels.
  • The optional $10 Add-On sets shown below can be added to any pledge level by adding the appropriate amount to your core pledge, or select one of the 'Hero' pledge levels that fits your needs.
  • There is no pledge level that includes the 'Prior Kickstarter Add-Ons'. You must add the amount for these sets to whatever pledge level you choose.
  • We do not use an after-campaign pledge manager. All pledges must be in by the end of the campaign.

DRAGONLOCK™ is an interlocking terrain system that allows you to create fully modular, multi-level 28mm scale village terrain for your RPG or wargame on your home 3D printer. Each set is delivered in a downloadable .stl format via our online distribution partner DriveThruRPG.com, and once you have the set, you can print as many pieces as you like and never run out or need to purchase more. These terrain sets represent the culmination of over twelve years of gaming terrain design experience.

Fat Dragon Games is the only 3D printer terrain company that is part of the prestigious DriveThruRPG Community Content program, which includes Margaret Weis Productions, Monte Cook Games, and Wizards of the Coast’s DMs Guild. Our Dragonbite Community Creator program allows YOU to sell your own Dragonbite-compatible terrain designs on DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, and Wargame Vault!

By supporting us through Kickstarter, you get bonus models that won't be available later, and access to free stretch rewards. We have been in the 'print-and-play' terrain business for over twelve years, and have successfully delivered eight previous Kickstarter projects, so you can pledge with confidence that we will deliver a high-quality product on time.

FREE STRETCH REWARDS that will increase the size of the terrain offerings will be available to anyone pledging at the 'Realm of the Mountain King' pledge level or higher. Spread the word about this project to your friends and post about it on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc., and GET FREE BONUS MODELS as the pledges rise!

A standard dungeon wall piece costs around $0.40 in plastic to print yourself, far cheaper than factory-made terrain! All of the models shown were printed at 100-200 micron resolution, a common standard on most economical 3D printers. A nice starter printer that can print these files starts around $220 (see our F.A.Q. for more info on printers, printing costs, filaments, and more.)

Even if you don't currently own a 3D printer, it benefits you to support this campaign now. You can get all of the free stretch rewards, exclusive content in some sets not available later, and have a digital library of village terrain ready to go when you do purchase a printer.

While I don't have a printer & probably won't for awhile, thou I have told myself 2018 will be the year I get into 3d printing. I probably will put a pledge in for this one just to have the files. Granted, right now I have a couple sources for Fat Dragon prints, just having my own would be nice + save money in long run as well.

Just want to point out that the image above is actually of printed pieces, not 3D renders. Had a brief chat with Tom on Facebook and he said that the "statue" was printed at 0.1mm layer height while the columns were printed at 0.2mm layer height. They were then given several coats of grey primer before being painted with regular craft acrylics. They took the picture in their office, lighted with an LED lamp.

sigh ... I have a 3d Printer coming for Christmas ... so I have a negative will roll.

I am with you on this. The 3D printer is on order and should have by Christmas. I bought the prior Fat Dragon 3D files when they had a sale running, so my will save will be pretty low on this one as well.

They're not as similar as I'd like. They're both basically 2x2x2" to represent a 1" grid, but the DF pieces have walls and floors around 3/8" thick, while the Dragonlock models have 1/2" walls and 1/4" (ish) floors. So they are pretty obviously different if you try to use them together.

 

My plan was to use the Dragonlock pieces for pre-built setups, especially stock buildings and locations characters come back to, but I haven't gotten around to printing enough of them yet.

 

If you are interested in 3D printing the Dragonlock KSs have provided a lot of good stuff, but know what to expect - it will take some experimenting and dialing in settings to get models you'll be satisfied with. Also printing takes a long time (unfortunately, my hobby time is pretty intermittent, so this has been an issue for me) so its a slow process to build up a large collection of terrain models. But if you really want 3D printing in your repertoire, these are a great way to get lots of different RPG terrain designs to print.

 

I've backed both of the earlier Dragonlock KSs and will probably back this one (at least for SF pieces so I can dream of the Starfinder spaceship interior of my dreams).

Thanks for the comparison and overview.  Too bad about the dimensions, they have some interesting singleton tiles I would have liked to mix with mostly df setups. Does look like there is a supportive community on their boards to help get into 3d printing.

 

I like their work on the papercraft side, still havent gotten into 3d printing.

Hmmm 1/2 and 1/4 matches up with the Hirst Arts stuff. And some of this stuff looks really good. I don't have a printer though. Not sure when I can afford to get one, although I imagine I'll get one eventually.

      If you pledge before November 14th 11:59 EST (17:59 Paris/CET, 16:59 London) you will get the Ezio the Assassin miniature for free (a $7 USD/ 7€ / 6 £ / $10 CAD value). The miniature will be available as an add-on after that and does not have any effect on the gameplay. 
      Cliquez ici pour une version française de cette page.
      Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood of Venice is a tabletop board game with miniatures aiming to capture the essence of Assassin's Creed® and turn it into a fun, fully cooperative game for 1 to 4 players. 
      It is played in a campaign spanning several months in 1509 in which you play a small team of Assassins in charge of developing the Headquarters of the Brotherhood of Assassins in Venice, after Ezio Auditore da Firenze has defeated Cesare Borgia and his allies, between the events of Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed®: Revelations.
      Players will use their Assassin's skills, equipment and their own sense of tactics to complete various objectives while evading detection from the Guards.
      The campaign will pit you against Templars, let you explore unknown events of the Brotherhood in Venice, and determine the fate of the Brotherhood in the famous City of Masks.
      Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood of Venice is a Triton Noir game under license by Ubisoft Entertainment.
      First time on Kickstarter ? Click here to see how it works.
      The game will be available in English or French. You will be able to choose your language in the pledge manager (after the Kickstarter campaign). In addition, we will offer free pdf files for German, Spanish and Italian languages with the rules, the campaign book and the cards' text.

      These are a bit of resin terrain from Ainsty Castings in the UK, Fire Hydrant x2 Different Based, SKU 8205.
       
      They were really simple to paint. The gravel is molded on.
       

       
       
       
        
       
      They might be a smidgen oversized. Here's a scale shot with a figure:

      About this project
      The Secret of Innsmouth. Act Three: Metamorphosis!
      This campaign features new sculpts that will, if the campaign is successful, join the existing Mythos range of 28mm scale white metal miniatures from Blind Beggar Miniatures..
      Whereas the first two Acts demonstrated the first stages of transformation into the Hybrid, this sequel features the final stages of the Metamorphosis from Hybrids into full blown Deep Ones.
      This campaign will allow for the Hybrids released in Acts One and Two, and the Dark Clergy, to be added to your Pledge if you choose to. .
      Alongside the Deep Ones and Hybrids there is also the chance to get your hands on the human populace of Innsmouth. These could represent the 'untainted' members of the population or, alternatively, Government Agents or Investigators who are attempting to eliminate this activity in this cursed coastal region.
      Act Three: The Deep Ones of Innsmouth.
       
       
       
       
      As you can see from the pictures above, the transformation from Hybrid to Deep One moves slowly through various stages. The process of metamorphosis means the loss of their more 'human-like' features that are still in existence in the earlier Hybrid phases. These features begin to disappear as they gradually take on the semblance of the creatures of Dagon and become Deep Ones and take to the water. 
      As Deep Ones age they continue to grow and become much larger and bulkier as they reach Ancient One status.
