ShipWorks 3d Printable Ship Terrain

Recommended Posts

 

 

About

Over a year ago we started looking at beginning a High-Seas Adventure D&D campaign. However, we wanted to kick it up a notch (or five).

 

So, we began looking for a great set of 3d Dungeon tiles to help bring the adventures to life for our players. We wanted something that was customizable, beautiful to look at, and was playable terrain. We also didn't want to spend $100 per ship. We realized that customizable didn’t really exist- we had to *choose* if we wanted beauty, or a slim amount of customization. Not to mention that the costs were extreme per ship.. We couldn’t put together a fleet of different ships if we wanted to without breaking the bank.

Being an Indy designer- Chris decided to start working on something better, and finally- after seeing friends and family reactions to the initial prototype- ShipWorks began becoming a reality.

Shipworks is modular. What this means is that from the hull to the masts and everywhere in between- you have the freedom to design and print the sailing ship that you want. Not just another generic template, but your minds eye brought to life.

Details and customization is also inside.. Details and customization is also inside..

ShipWorks is also fully usable terrain- to scale with miniatures common to some of the oldest and greatest table top roleplaying games. Your miniatures can traverse the rigging shrouds and masts, climb ladders and stairs, and explore above or even below decks.

Even our yard-arms are functional terrain- 25mm miniatures bases slide in with ease, and stay there- even when turned upside down!

 

Upside down can be right side up- depending on perspective. Upside down can be right side up- depending on perspective.

 

With ShipWorks you get to choose:

  • The length of your ship.

  • Adjust the width of the ship.

  • Your prows appearance, and even the figurehead that adorns it!

  • Add more (or less) masts and their length! No messy shaping of wood dowels (unless you’re into that). Add a crows nest or viewing platform.

  • A host of customizations to change your hull. From the number of weapons ports to fight off enemies, to creature comforts like windows for passenger cabins. Even sleek flat hull panels for showing off your more merchant elite!

  • How you want your sails, from classic square to sharp looking lateen triangles.  If you change your mind- change them on the fly! 

  • Your stern-castle and fore-castle (or have neither Captain!)

      I've backed two Zenit projects and both delivered in a timely fashion with a nice product.
       
      This project is for adding armies for the 1582 Cagayan battles (Spanish and Pirates) to the Kensei miniatures game.  Note that Kensei has several fantasy elements so these might not be full historically accurate.

      Terror From the Black Isles
      Every goblin knows to be careful sailing on Basin Bottom's Sea, especially around the Black Isles.  Of course, no one knows what's actually on the Black Isles as no matter how far you sail you can never seem to reach them - until now.  What strange creatures and unearthly terrors await you on the Black Isles?
       
      Terror from the Black Isles is the third book in Rebel Minis Dark Hold Goblin Adventures series.  The book is fully compatible with the Savage Worlds game system.  The book contains a full adventure, locations, new equipment, creatures and a new racial template (not saying its Duckmen but...)
       
      You can also enhance your game play with our full line of Duckmen minis which may or may not feature prominently in this book (they do...).
       
      So, grab your gear and set sail for the Black Isles!

      I'm not sold on the gameplay, but the tech and potential is interesting.

      I've backed a previous Blackwater Gulch kickstarter and been pleased with what I received.
