The Skyless Realms -3D Printable Tabletop Models

Recommended Posts

As I hadn't seen a topic yet, I wanted to mention a Kickstarter project I'm really excited to have been part of testing for, The Skyless Realms:

Welcome to "The Skyless Realms" - a dark, dangerous place below ground - full of all the most evil races of the world - where everything is trying to kill you, and both grand adventure and extreme peril await!

Enrich your tabletop RPG or wargaming experience with 3D print-ready minis, monsters, terrain, and buildings from this deadly, subterranean landscape.

Regardless of the tabletop RPG or wargame you play, doubtless you run across all denizens of the deep dark, and spend lots of time exploring the depths. This Kickstarter is designed to completely flesh out those environments with character minis, monsters, scatter, buildings and more for your to produce at home on your FDM or resin 3D printer. Rewards are for digital STL files to print the products shown and described in this campaign. Rewards are split into two categories: Scatter, and Minis - designed to be used together or independently, and all for normal tabletop gaming scale (28-32mm).

** PLEASE NOTE - This Kickstarter is for digital files (STLs) to make all these items on your own home 3D printer - these are not physical goods **

While I'm not going to back this (topic doesn't interest me), I can vouch for the quality of ecaroth's models. Some of these pieces are available already on Thingiverse if you want to test out the quality for yourself.

I am looking forward to more folks doing these kind of projects, 3D printing will be a great boon to some areas of the hobby. I hope a company with the reputation of this one will start doing futuristic terrain usable on filament printers.

Not going to tell how much/little I paid for my KUDO 3D Bean Resin printer... But it was less than my Wanhao i3...  

 

I may pledge for some of the mini files.

I'm still having issues getting my printer dialed in.  Prints start ok, but part way through something seems to happen and the part gets pulled from the bed.  It's not supposed to need any adhesive, so I'm not sure what keeps happening.  Maybe my leveling is a bit off? Higher retraction settings? I don't know, but it's frustrating.

 

I've set this one to remind for now.

Which material are you printing in?

If your bed is glass I really, really recommend using a gluestick on it. 

I use a piece of thin thermal receipt paper when levelling. 

 

Run it up to temp(both bed and hot-end), 'home' it, then disable steppers. 

The paper should slide between hot-end and glass with the barest of resistance. 

Adjust first corner, then move the head to the next corner, adjust, third and fourth corners and adjusting.... then back to first corner and adjusting that again...  and repeat all until you can check all 4 corners without needing an adjustment anywhere.

It might also be a draught that cools the plastic prematurely causing the curl. I had problems with that.or a combination level too low and a draught. I solved it by covering the machine with a box when printing.

Also clean the bed with rubbing alcohol. There may be residual lube or oils from your hand on it.

I had the problem that my print would always come off the print bed in a certain (always the same) place on the print bed. Nothing helped ... until I noticed that my computer's cooling fan was blowing right at that part of the print bed (from about 30cm away, but it was still enough to cause that problem).

      And now, the hour is here, when over 100+ new Lovecraftian Meanders are being unleashed upon the unsuspecting tables of DM's and players the world over - and a new wave of cosmic horror ushered in for tabletop RPG.
       
      MEANDERS 5: LOVECRAFT MYTHOS KICKSTARTER
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gametilewarehouse/meanders-5-lovecraft-mythos-maps
       
      Behold, if you will, the biggest, baddest Meanders campaign yet - with another expansion of all-new digital maps - and in time for your Halloween extravaganza.
       
      Kind Regards,

      Return to Planet Apocalypse, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/petersengames/return-to-planet-apocalypse?ref=android_project_share
      Yes, Petersen Games is doing a Kickstarter Exclusive again! Just this once! Planet Apocalypse was designed by Sandy Petersen, one of the best-known designers in horror gaming. In the early eighties he wrote the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game for Chaosium. In the nineties, he was a key designer for the ground-breaking video games Doom, Doom 2, and Quake. And in 2015, he released Cthulhu Wars. Now he returns to the topic of apocalyptic horror with a game Shut Up and Sit Down described as "[having] cemented Sandy Petersen as the king of games where you roll dice and things die."
      This Kickstarter offers two separate tabletop experiences:
      The board game (core game reprint) with new expansions. 
      A 325+ role-playing book for 5th edition D&D with TONS of content to bring the apocalypse to your fantasy world, plus new adventures, monsters and more.

      Not figure related, but hopefully of use to folks wanting to generate characters and backstory

      Way over funded and 21 days to go.

      Twisted are returning to Kickstarter soon, it's still in the teasing stage at the moment but there should be more details next week.
       
      Since their first Kickstarter wrapped up pretty dang late (even by usual Kickstarter standards), I'm hoping they've learnt a few lessons and keep this one fairly small and manageable.

      "Crosslances is an artistic reality consolidated for many years, we have dedicated ourselves very often to model making and playing miniatures in 28/32mm scale.
      This time, however, we want to launch a completely different project, an absolute novelty, our original idea.
      In fact, we want to make available to you these fantastic sculptures of ours, which can be printed directly at home, painted and placed inside your bookshelves to obtain stunning effects!"
