Fat Dragon Dragonlock 3 Terrain

Recommended Posts

I'm kind of new to 3d printing (as in, my printer won't be here until February - recently backed the Cubibot KickStarter), so maybe I'm just uneducated here.. but doesn't the price seems a bit steep for 3d files to me.

Well, it's kind of a personal decision, but you get really a decent number of models for the price (granted I don't expect to use some of the models). Modeling is real work (it is basically digital sculpting). Also, its a one-time investment for as many as you feel like printing (once you have models and a printer, the consumables are pretty inexpensive compared to buying cast/molded terrain). Comparing Kickstarter prices with things like printablescenery their prices seem in line with other projects (don't necessarily compare to model download sites, there are some cheap but crappy models out there).

 

Also, Fat Dragon has so far done an great job of supporting and updating the models. Since I backed the first one, there were a few issues that they quickly resolved with updated designs, and they have since redesigned the locking mechanism completely (the new system works *much* better) without charging for a version 2.0. 

 

For me the value of the models is there, assuming they're models I'll print and use.

Thanks for the feedback; that makes sense and since the Christmas budget is in play, I'll have to do some thinking about it before I bite the bullet.

If you google Fat Dragon Games you'll find their website. They have a free sample pack, if there is a library or maker space nearby you can try it out there. And their forum has great support in troubleshooting most printers and getting the best print for the printer. Fat Dragon Games also permits customer created files to augment what they sell, and usually, you can find quite a number of them on the forum. Their forum atmosphere is very much like Reaper's.

Yes just like how so many people here on the Reaper forums are willing to help others become better at miniature painting on the Fat Dragon forums so many people are willing to help others use their 3D printers to get the best out of them.

Here are some previews of our prototype castle wall fully painted up. The castle set is a free stretch reward in this KS. :)

Tom any chance that in the final version the gargoyles could be printed separate.  IMO it would be great to be able to print different attachable décor to make a castle have a different look.

Yes, we are looking into various options for redressing the upper piece (i.e. swap parts out for a more Mordor-ish look, etc.) Having the gargoyles attach with a peg is one thing we are looking into. :)

I have to admit the Mountain Adventures set is intriguing to me, because it's modular hex terrain (in small pieces similar to dungeon squares).  I have a bunch of HeroScape sets I use at conventions for Battletech, but I never considered the possibility of using some other system for 3D hexes.

                                        1 CHF = 0,88 EUR = 1,02 USD
      Through this project we want to expand our new series of collectibles miniatures inspired by The Divine Comedy, the Dante Alighieri's poem, the book that recounts about the mystical and fabulous journey that the italian poet Dante Alighieri accomplished through the three realms of the afterlife: INFERNO, PURGATORIO and PARADISO.  
      Last year we have completed an amazing campaign here on Kickstarter dedicated to the launch of the first figures of this new series. The welcome that the project received was exceptional and many backers asked us about the characters of the poem of Dante Alighieri that we didn't produce during the first wave of releases. Well, in this campaign you'll find the expansion: a second series of figures inspired by The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri is ready to be produced, they are just waiting your support.
      1. You'll get the NEW miniatures of Dante's Inferno series several months before their official launch: these figures are NOT going to be released soon!!  
      2. Our designs are unique, we take care carefully about every detail of our productions in order to offer you the most spectacular miniatures for your collection.  
      3. Geryon is KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE, it means that this creature won't be available in the future! This Kickstarter is your only chanche to get it.  
      4. The other amazing figures will NOT have the same price when released: their price on Kickstarter is the cheaper price.  
      5. You're a fan of Aradia and your support will allow this company to continue to bring out fantastic models and dioramas - real pieces of art.  
      6. We have already managed successfully 2 Kickstarter campaigns in the past and intend to stand for it in the future.  
      7. We are equipped to produce high quality resin miniatures in large quantities and ship them in a reasonable time.  
      8. Returning Backers receive extra bonus.  
      9. You'll have the possibility to buy Add-Ons from previous series of Dante's Inferno at Kickstarter prices and get freebies.  
      10. You'll be part of a fantastic adventure to make this project reality for us all, keeping alive this unique miniatures series based on The Divine Comedy: Dante's Inferno.
      There are 2 kind of backers for this campaign, the old heroes who already descended to Inferno and are not afraid to return in that gloomy place and the new heroes who are descinding right now.  
      We have planned, for some add-ons, 2 different prices: one for "returning backers" and another one for "new backers".  
      - RETURNING BACKERS = Backers who already backed our first campaign of Dante's Inferno during 2017 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1201812263/aradia-miniatures-the-divine-comedy-dantes-inferno  
      - NEW BACKERS = Backers who are backing Dante's Inferno for the first time  
      ALL THE BACKERS OF THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BECOME AUTOMATICALLY "RETURNING BACKERS" IN THE NEXT ARADIA KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, BEING ABLE TO ENJOY ALL THE BENEFITS OF "RETURNING BACKERS".

      One of my newer pieces.  Been having a play with a couple of corrugating tools and a baked bean tin.  Really enjoy making these things,  just need a bigger house to store them in.

      Gloomhaven Scenario 1 - Miniatures are property of Cephalofair Games 3d printable hex tiles, perfectly compatible with Gloomhaven or any RPG, as well as Shadespire and other hex based games by scaling up the tiles.
      Adventuring in multiple universes often takes us to fantastic places, 3d printing has made it possible to bring the worlds from our imaginations to the table. There are already many systems which create fantastic dungeons, caverns, towns and forests; however all of these systems use square based grids. Squares are very good for some things, making a rectangular room is easier to imagine than adding walls to a hex grid, however this set has a new way to make easy walls while also taking the many advantages of a hex grid which are:
      No diagonal movement - fair and more natural movement 1 hex based module - more configurations and more possible builds Adjacency - No diagonal attacks, every slot available to attackers is clear Natural Formations - Hexes present a more natural shape so they adapt better to natural formations Irregular Rooms - whenever there is a skew wall squares tend to have too much unused space, with hex grids you can do walls in every 8 directions with our wall system. Easier Spells - some spells have a much easier way to calculate the appropriate area of effect. These are only some of the advantages, if you want to convert to hex d20SRD has some other pointers. 
      This set uses Printable Scenery's Openlock design. Their design is well known and has been open from the get-go, this has let a ton of people grow the community and make some incredible designs. If you like this set please visit their page to look at what they have. I am also working on a solution to make the sets more compatible and have some connection tiles, go from squares to hexes!
      Texture Sets
      This campaign has 4 base sets, and one trap and decoration bundle, Most of the sets include at least 1 tile per available frame, one wall per wall length and a column. Most have more options that will be listed below.
      The Dungeon Set has a complete set, plus some extra broken walls and floors with moss and a more broken stone.
      The Cave set has extra wall textures to make your caverns look more realistic.
      The Tavern set has an extra set of "inn" walls with stucco to give some wall variety.
      The Grassland set has 3 full sets of floors, grass, mixed and dirt, this way you can make roads and transition tiles easily.
      With over 45 different decorations and traps, this is the perfect addition to liven up your dungeons and make them look more populated. includes some tiles that snap on to the frame system.

      I bought into the recent Terrain Crate Kickstarter; getting the Dungeon Crate, and the Battlefield Crate, along with the Dark Lord's Tower set.  My Terrain Crate shipment arrived in the early Summer, and I immediately painted two of the large tents that came with the "Campsite" portion of the Battlefield Crate to use in a game I did at Historicon.  Recently, I've been painting some of the "Abandoned Mine" stuff from the Dungeon Crate, as I am preparing for a game a friend and I are doing at Fall-In using our Tablescapes Dungeon Mines sets.    
       
      I thought I'd start a thread to chronicle the pieces I paint, to help me keep track, and to help keep me motivated to keep plowing through.  There's a lot of pieces!   I hope to use a bunch of it in my Fall-In game, so have some motivation there as well.
       
       
      Big Tents:

       
      The Terrain Crate stuff goes great with the Tablescapes Dungeon Mines sets.
