About this project



5ab0eb3b4aa813f1a9dee9f00da8b4f5_origina

DRAGONLOCKâ„¢ (patent pending) is an all-new 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. This new terrain system is the culmination of eleven years of gaming terrain design experience.


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 eleven years, and have successfully delivered seven 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 $45 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 wall piece costs around $0.25 in plastic to print yourself, far cheaper than factory-made terrain! All of the models shown were printed at 100-150 micron resolution, a common standard on most economical 3D printers. A really nice starter printer that can print these files starts around $390 (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 and have a digital library of village terrain ready to go when you do purchase a printer.


All miniatures shown in our video and promotional shots are by Reaper Miniatures (www.reapermini.com


All models were printed on Printrbot Play & Simple 3D printers (www.printrbot.com)

The modular printable models are becoming really interesting these days.

 

This almost exactly my vision of an ideal modular set.

I'd be all over this if I had a 3D printer.

 

Someday, just not today....

I have two working printers...

and even my brother, the luddite, has one and manages to print parts.

 

I'll probably have to pick one of the lowest pledge levels for this KS, though.

<sigh>  The timber frame and fieldstone buildings are awfully tempting, especially with the ruined options.  And, my son has been bugging me about getting a 3D printer.

 

Ah, wrestling with temptation.   :;):

I wonder how Dwarven Forge feels about the similarity in design to their cities terrain.

This is based directly on our E-Z LOCK system (base tile has square holes, a corner post is then inserted into those holes, and walls link to the corner posts) which has been around for over a decade now. The only difference is we switched from bobby-pins for linking the walls to the posts to dovetail slots. :)

Just to enable all ya fence sitters, I've used my printer more for household stuff than hobby, which is what I bought it for. Suitcase legs, dishwasher handle end caps, organizational boxes, and other household repairs and goods. Planning to make drawer organizers for the silverware when I get a free moment and a smaller to-do list.

 

In case you need a non-hobby reason.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
