Starship III - Fully 3D Printable 28mm Spaceships

Recommended Posts

Can't believe I missed this one until now.  I didn't have a printer during their previous projects, but I'm definitely in on this one.  Less than 48 hours to go.  Link added.

Seek adventure amongst the stars! Explore strange new worlds, smuggle illicit cargos across the hyperspace lanes or launch a space to ground assault, in your Scout Ship, Transport, or Space Shuttle!

Somewhere in the outer reaches... Somewhere in the outer reaches...

Starship III introduces three original, fully 3D-printable spaceships scaled for 28mm play in your favourite Tabletop RPGs or Wargames. Complete with OpenLOCK-compatible modular interiors, the ships are detailed inside and out and a variety of configurations can be used to customise the deck plans.

Each ship comes detailed inside and out (Scout ship standard interior shown here) Each ship comes detailed inside and out (Scout ship standard interior shown here)

As the campaign unfolds, new starship hull variants and modules will be unlocked as stretch goals to bring even more variety to your game and increase the pledge value for everyone.

Each pledge is designed to be printed on your own 3D printer or via a print service, allowing you to print as many parts as you like, for non-commercial use. Deliverable files will be made available digitally in STL zip packs via DriveThruRPG.com (see Printing Requirements details below for print bed size requirements)

Seen this one the day I left for LVO last week. I was gonna get in on it then but totally spaced it off. Love the design of the starship even if one of them have a certain "bird of prey from a warring galaxy far far away " feel to them. While my Starfinder Society game at the FLGS is on hold due to the lack of people, this is something I may have to look into for the PC's starship & such.

They also feel like they'd drop right into the Elite:Dangerous universe too... 

 

I like that they have interiors as well...

 

Got a link by chance?

These are cool. Reminds me of the ship design maps from early Traveller. But brought to 3D.

Nope, not at all.  It's how a few people here have started - see something neat, acquire it... Then get the printer later.

Exactly!  I'm guilty of that myself.  And these really do look nice.  I'm in for the lot.

Always did like this design for the YT-1300 freighters (from the Star Wars rpg (West End Games days)

With the freighter option & other options in this KS, you could almost replicate it. I knew the name Starship II & the layout of the renders (the line green screens) looked familiar. I bought/downloaded a couple of sets from them off Drivethru a few weeks back. I picked up the pop up security gun tile & a generic door & arch. Great files to work with. Still on the fence with this one & with time running out, I'm not sure if I'll back or not. If my Starfinder Society game was a go every week, it'd be a no brainer but currently, it'd just be a .stl file on my computer.

Well, I jumped in for the 3 ship pack. Hope that their history of good delivery holds up. It is nice to see that they already have printed versions to see.

Actually , according to Wookiepedia, this beauty would be closer to the YT1000 class than the 1300.

 

Speaking of Wookies, I'm gonna have to do a Chewie mini for the asymmetrical  transport.

This is where I am. I'm in for All Ships, but now need to budget and plan for a 3d printer. Good thing the wife wants a 3d printer too. She is actually an artist that was worked in 3d before (physical sculpts as well as digital for CNC routers) so she was an easy sell on the plan.

      Hi all,
       
      Andrew May launched the second season of Black Crab Miniatures. I backed the first season, and was pretty happy with it. They’re resin minis with very creepy looks, I thought you guys might be interested. :)
       
      The campaign is very short, there’s already less than 24 hours to back it.

      About
      Welcome to the most thrilling raid in the miniature history! Choose your side, fight until the end and get greatly rewarded for your engagement!
      This campaign features 2 lines of miniatures!
      "Temple of Serpent" is a brand new collection inspired by the lost civilizations of Amazonia and Mesoamerica. It envisions an utopian enclave hidden so deep in the wilderness that it is considered forbidden territory. The tribe is focused on preserving an ancient magic with the help of gods and dinosaurs. Be the first to explore it!
      "Bloodsail Island" is an established line of ruthless ogre pirates. Upon discovering the Temple of Serpent they have became overpowered by the desire to plunder its treasures. They are going to need every hand on deck for this one, so the line is getting a massive extension! 
      Our products are in 28mm scale and come with square bases. Check pictures at the bottom of our campaign to see the size comparisons. All miniatures are made from high-quality resin that ensures highest details, durability and flexibility. 
      Based on our Kickstarter experience and community feedback we have came up with the simplest Reward System to date. You can choose one of the following pledges.
      Deckhand Pledge is for you if you are not sure what you need but you want to be a part of the campaing. It will give you the access to the Pledge Manager where you will be able to spend your additional funds on any miniatures you want. 
        Basic Pledge is for you if you do not want to pick a side. It is really simple. You plede $99 and you receive $99 to spend on addons. But on top of that you will choose and receive either a set of Serpent Freebies OR Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with those freebies packs.
      In Captain Pledge you become the commander of ogre pirate army! Pledge $199 to get Captain Krabor in special offer for $40. The rest of your funds ($159) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive  a set of Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs.
      In Serpent Pledge you become the deity of the Temple! Pledge $199 to get High Priestess on Pterossus in a special offer for $50. The rest of your funds ($149) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive  a set of Serpent Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs.
        After the campaign ends, we will open a Pledge Manager. You will receive an e-mail address with a link to it. When you log in, you will be able to pick your rewards and spend your funds on any chosen add-ons from the campaign. You will also be able to transfer additional funds via PayPal. After finishing an order a shipping cost will be charged, based on your address and the package weight. 
      All additional funds you pledge over your reward price you will be able to spend on add-ons.
      When our Campaign is live we will post a link to an online calculator that will help you in figuring out how much you need to pledge to get all the miniatures you want. 
      Example 1: You want just 3 units of Raptor Riders that are $39 each. In order to get them you need to choose Basic Pledge and pledge $117 (3x $39) for it. This will allow you to spend that $117 in Pledge Manager and choose 3x Raptor Riders. On top of that you will be able to choose a set of freebies (either Serpent of Ogre one).
      Example 2: You want Captain Krabor, 3 units of Sharkman that are $39 each and 5 units of goblins that are $12 each. In order to get those you should choose Captain Pledge and pledge $217 for it. In this pledge Captain Krabor is in a better price and you will also get $159 for other addons. You need 3x $39 + 5x $12 = $177 so you need to pledge $18 on top of the pledge price to cover everything. 
      In case of any mistakes, there will be no problem with make a correction. You will always be able to add funds in the Pledge Manager via PayPal, so if you do not pledge enough through Kickstarter, you will still be able to get everything you need after the campaign ends.

        Risks and challenges
      Risks and challenges that are a part of every campaign with tabletop collectible miniatures are usually:
      - Delay in delivery
      - Production difficulties
      - Digital models conversion and creation of production molds
      - Communication with the Backers that are postponing filling out the Pledge Manager that creates a delay for the start of targeted production
      We have a lot of experience as for the miniatures production and delivery and we will do our best to keep risk levels at minimum and deliver the best miniatures that you have always wanted.

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.

      Quite a long time ago, this project was on KS for the first time. The creator had a lot to learn about material, options on sprues, poses etc ... so the first KS lost momentum. He sure took his time and now he's back and it looks to me (at first glance) that he definitely did his homework. It might me a niche "army", but I'm definitely interested in a pack of those fauns.
      If some of the stretch goals get unlocked, there is some awesome stuff coming.
