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 Grassland set has 3 full sets of floors, grass, mixed and dirt, this way you can make roads and transition tiles easily.

Looks neat.  I wonder how long it would take to print a decent sized dungeon... 

Depends on your printer.

I backed the last Axolote KS, which was a large campaign with a lot of extra material unlocked, and the files comes out on a regular schedule as promised.:winkthumbs:

Now if my KS printer/scanner/laser cutter would just get here.:bday:

The hex grid system looks like a worthwhile addition, particularly for outdoor adventures with encounters that could get "interesting" and require accurate figure placement to visualize and resolve.

OK, what just happened?

Tried to fix the strikethrough but it won't budge.

New campaign with focus on 3d hex dungeons, we are funded, but there are still plenty of Stretch Goals to break. This set is also completely compatible with Gloomhaven and can be scaled up to be used with Shadespire.

      The toddler insisted on me removing the plastic piece from the puzzle game Blokus(tetris meets scrabble kinda) because it looked like game pieces left in the box. Nope, just a fancy display that made it hard to store/remove the game.
      I added some craft sticks to hint at my idea for a water park...  No timeline

      "Over 1800 Jungle Themed Terrain Pieces Made for the World's Greatest Roleplaying Game, and Others Like it."
       

       
      "This Kickstarter marks the release of our two newest books in the Dungeon Craft series "Fallen Kingdom & Jungles of Dread". Both books have nearly 1,000 jungle-themed pieces in them, which allow DMs to build custom interactive maps in a brand new setting. As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures. We'll also be unveiling new and exciting products like our jungle DM screen and our Crocodile Jasper D20."

      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      Looks like Printable Scenery will be doing another KS.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
