Wow ... suddenly I don't feel like having a 3d printer running for 12 hours straight in my office while I'm trying to do some other work ...

The price is much cheaper than Dwarven Forge or other 3d terrain, and the quality control and overall quality has gone up with each Kickstarter. Naturally it's pricier than self printed cardstock, but it's much easier to get ready for use, and very compact to store the walls.

 

For newcomers, be aware the edges come gray by default. They have use pens by hand to add that extra detailing, which looks even better...but is time consuming.

 

I've had only good experiences with their terrain kickstarters, and backed each one since the fantasy one.

How so? Do you mean to make it match the sides?

I've used black pens on the white edges of cardstock before (which works pretty well), but I haven't used other colors.

The card edges are grey. They use coloured pens, felt pens to colour the edges. 

 

I've moved to painting the edges to get a better colour match.

 

On the prototype models the edges are white, so need to be mindful that when penning the colours are dimmed on the final product due to the grey.......hence why I paint them.

Yeah, as Talion said. Even with an imperfect color match, though, the penning of the edges can look much better for more colorful pieces. The gray does look fine on its own, just not quite as fancy as the promo pictures. For the bulk of past sets, the walls were neutral enough that the gray doesnt seem out of place.

From their blog, they have a Village set, and a Battlefield set:

If the pledges are $100 plus shipping each, that's $20 for a building. Much less than resin, less painting than MDF and 3D printing, but still more expensive than papercraft and 3D printing.

It all looks soooo good!! 

 

It also looks like it'll integrate well with Umbum/Clever Paper buildings.

 

I'm probably in for at least 1 of everything they produce in this KS. (They say they're keeping it simple but I assume they'll still have stretch goals and add-ons?)

      FOUNDED!!! Thank you all very much!
      -Third goal reached! Again, thank you all!
      Unlocked so far:
      Infantry Commander: 4 new heads for each infantry squad, 4 different banners. 5 one handed axes, 5 new shields. A new religious pilgrim thematic infantry. It will have customizable arms and heads, and will come with its own set of weapons and shields. (And holy relics!) A new Two handed swords and axe infantry! Equiped with chainmail and  gambeson this infantry will be the elite troops of any army! Knight: 8 new knight´s Great Helms, 6 new shields. 5 special mono-pose thematic torsos for champions. Knight: Horse backpacks with accessories for traveling knights, plus another 5 special mono-pose thematic torsos for a king´s guard. A mounted damisel with it´s own personal 5 squad monopose female guard! Beast Master: 3 new multipiece Demigryph mounts.  3 new multipiece hipogriff mounts. A new lady in a new pegasus, ready to encourage the hearts of her people! Knight accessories, work in progress The monopose figure is one of the religious pilgrims from the second stretch goal, and the one handed axe and the shields are from the first stretch goal, both are from the infantry commander pack. One of the monopose female guard of the damsel! Work in progress Thank you all! Let us go for the Fourth Stretch Goals:
      A small pack of warhammers and halberds for all backers, plus a war priest on foot for the Infantry Commander pack, a war priest with its own unique armoured horse for the Knight pack, and a war priest on a demigryph for the Beast Master pack!
      Also: a small update on supports and infantry legs.
      As many of you have asked me, I have decided to change how I have put the supports on the legs of the infantry. This also involves minor modifications to the robes to facilitate printing, making them a little more wavy at the bottom.
      Welcome to 3D Printing Army of the Old Age: a full modular army of knights for skirmishes, tabletop and war games!
      This is my first release of 28 heroic scale miniatures, a huge project that aims to change the way we have been 3D printing for wargames from now on. 
      Like many I wondered if 3D printers really served to build an entire army, or only served to print monsters, heroes, or figures with strange positions in which supports were avoided, with the added difficulty of unifying all of them into certain proportions. I often came across extraordinary designs, but too different to build a coherent army.
      The second point was the difficulty of customizing the models, one of my favorite parts of the hobby, with the added problem of gluing many of the resin pieces together. Frequently they had been cut after designing them, without any type of connector that would make the work easier, and depending on the size of the piece, forcing it to be drilled to include wire or other hooks. 
      I was thinking for a while about how to avoid these problems, and so now I am pleased to present the birth of Tartessos miniatures, with the intention of offering people an entire army, with infantry units, cavalry, and trained creatures to confront and destroy the enemies of Order and Peace. An army designed on the basis of small pieces, of fast printing, which in turn require smaller supports; a highly customizable and expandable army: a system that allows you to prepare archers on horseback, knights on foot, pikemen on griffins... Whatever you want or need!
