Forest of Oakenspire - 3D Printable Tabletop Models

Recommended Posts

 

About

"The Forest of Oakenspire",  a brand-new tabletop fantasy RPG project including 3D-printable terrain & accessories, battle maps, and more!

Explore ancient tree strongholds and soar through the branches above on modular airships!

What is this project all about?

Welcome to our first Kickstarter! This project aims to bring a brand-new, uniquely-themed set of 3D models, and other  resources, to your gaming tabletop to inspire your players, and drive countless hours of adventure. 

There are two main categories for this project: the tree strongholds of Oakenspire (with multiple levels of playable space and secrets to discover), and modular airships you can customize for various encounters among the trees–or anywhere else!

Additionally, there will be supplemental content to help spur your imagination, including a PDF with adventure hooks and encounter ideas, along with unique, 2D-printable battle maps that coordinate with the 3D printed components!

Community created & inspired

Initially I started this project as a solo-mission, creating 3D printable models - but it has since taken on a life of it's own and expanded well beyond my initial goals. I am one of many creators who has turned a hobby into something more, and there are countless others like me who have done the same. As I continued to meet more and more of these creators, I began feeling a burning desire to work with, and feature the work of, as many as possible and build a project that touches all the areas of tabletop RPG gaming that I love!

To that end, this project includes supplemental materials, produced specifically for this Kickstarter, from the amazing work of 6 other individual creators who have chosen to participate and be featured - ranging from 2D battle map artists, to illustrators, writers, software developers, and other 3D modelers. They are mentioned related to their work throughout this Kickstarter description, but there is a complete list (and links to their respective pages) at the end. I also plan on featuring many of them and their work on this Kickstarter through various updates during the campaign. Be sure to take a look!

Modular Airships

I have worked to create what I hope are some of the most modular, dynamic, and beautifully designed airships to have graced tabletop gaming to date. You can customize and print your own unique airship for your players to explore your worlds, or assemble a diverse, powerful armada to rule the skies! 

The airship body prints in individual sections that require no support, connect together with OpenLOCK clips, and will fit on the build plate of most commercial at-home 3D printers. Two options exist for the style and power of your airship: steam-powered or magical. Various wing, turbine, fin, sail, and decor customization options are also included. The airship is designed to use 5x1mm disc magnets to quickly change out the main and rear wings and fins (or just glue in place if you don't need modularity). A rock base, multiple variations of bottom fins, and 8mm acrylic rods let your airship "fly" above the tabletop. STL exists to print rods instead of using acrylic as well, and the airship easily comes off the stand to sit flat on the table during play.

In addition to the core modular airship options. there are many stretch goals to further customize the ships and add airship-specific items to your table.

      About
      Cerberus Studios Logo Who are we?
      Hello and welcome to our Kickstarter.
      We are a small UK miniature design studio born out of a love for all things fantasy and the spark of an idea.  We wanted to create a world with a wealth of characters and storylines that immerse and captivate you... so for the last year we have been working on bringing the first of a large range of miniatures/characters to life. 
      We have been completely self funded to get to this point and will aim to move forward with the money raised to deliver our next selection of characters and beasts. It is our intention, with your help, to use any raised funds towards 3D printing, casting, packaging and the distribution of this range.
      The profits will go towards the realisation of a strong character cast, each developing into their own unique part in our story and becoming miniatures in their own right.
      If the kickstarter goes beyond our expectations we will expand, creating new miniatures, game designs, and employ more artists to help realise our world and bring it to you.
      Our World and Characters
      As with any good story you need heroes and villains and that's exactly where we started.
      All of these characters form the introductory model range to our story and miniature line up.
      Character Cast From left to right:
      The Veiled Emissary Lazarus The Kyrios The Slaver The Miniatures:
      Each of our cast are conceptualised and developed, blending backgrounds and storylines to link our characters. Using a talented team of artists, the artwork and 3D renders are created to build the foundation of the miniature we present to you.
      Each of our designs is prototyped using 3D print technology, allowing us to have highly detailed moulds for the resin miniatures that we hope you will enjoy.

      About
      The Tang dynasty was considered the first golden age of the classical and now iconic Chinese gardens. Emperor Xuanzong built the magnificent imperial Garden of the Majestic Clear Lake as an homage of life itself.
      Tang Garden is a Zen-like game that will take you to the first golden age of China, where players will progressively build a garden by creating the landscape, placing the scenery and projecting their vision through vertical panoramas. During the construction, noblemen will visit the garden to admire the surroundings and the way the natural elements coexist in the most breathtaking scenery humankind has ever laid their eyes upon.

      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.
      The ships seen table time ;-)  
      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.
       
      Captain checking the rigging as a swab runs up to the wheel  
      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.  
      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!)

      There's only a few days left in this KS, but I just realized that there's no thread for it here, and it looks like a great game. There's nothing in it to paint, but I know that a lot of people here are role-players, so I'm sure more than a few are interested in Shadowrun.
