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.

      Right now it's just a Notify Me page.
      Not sure when it goes Live, but it's set to let me know.

      Here is my collection of fantasy ruins the can be 3D printed for tabletop games.
      The pledges will be delivered as STL files for you to print on your home 3D Printer.
      Disclaimer: i do not own a 3d printer yet so i have not test printed these models, if you find any error let me know and i will sort out the meshes for you.
      All models have been checked for errors in mesh-mixer and a couple of them will need to be sliced to fit onto smaller build plates some of them already fit onto a 300 x 300 mm plate.

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      I haven’t really been getting a lot of painting done, but I sat down at my painting desk the other day and noticed that I had two buildings sitting over in one corner, neglected for a couple of months, and decided to start adding paint.
       
      This one is from Apocalypse Miniatures.  They ran a Kickstarter back in 2017, and my brother and I both ended up backing this.  In my case, I backed it to the extent of 10 buildings, of which this is the second I have finished. The first was back in November.
       
      In general, this wasn’t too bad to paint.  The little detail bits molded into the base look nice in the pictures, but I would really prefer that they were not sculpted in; it detracts from the flexibility of the building somewhat.  Sizewise, these are a little small for Reaper figures, and are probably intended for a 28mm scale (e.g. Metal Magic, mid-period Citadel, later Ral Partha), but that’s always negotiable when deploying scenery.  This building is a SOLID block of resin, so the game will be played around it rather than through it, and I would as soon buildings in that mode be a bit underscale anyway.  When I say solid, I put it on my kitchen scale, and it’s just a bit over two pounds (935g for those in countries with sensible measurement systems).  You wouldn’t want to drop it on your toe.
       

       
       

       

       

       
      As for the building name, that’s how it is spelled on their web site...
