Here comes another one from EC3D, aimed for easy to print, supportless, hordes of lower CR traditional monsters and encounters:
Welcome to "Beasts and Baddies" from EC3D, your one-stop shop for the fastest, easiest to print, and highly-reusable tabletop fantasy mini STLS!
This campaign was designed with a few goals in mind:
#1 - Give DMs and gamers a beautiful set of minis to cover the bases for MANY common beasts and baddies they might encounter across most games (particularly low-to-medium level ones)
#2 - Make those minis DEAD SIMPLE to print - no supports required on resin or FDM printers.
#3 - Design those minis so they can be painted fast, but detailed enough to paint to a high quality if you wish.
#4 - Make those minis resilient - aka less prone to breakage with small pieces, easy to travel with, survive drops on the floor, etc
Thus this campaign was born! Many Patreons and Kickstarters have crazy good looking sculpts of various huge bosses, or overly fragile dynamically posed monsters - but nobody is designing minis for the working DM, who wants to throw a set of monsters on the printer before work, come home and they are sitting there finished (with no print errors), slap some paint on them quick, and use them in tonight's session.
This Kickstarter is designed for every DM - regardless of what kind of fantasy game you run, what kind of printer you have, or what kind of models you are looking to fill out your ranks with, this campaign will have something for you. We have sets of all your basic monsters (orcs, goblins, gnolls, kobolds, undead, etc) plus MANY stretch goals planned out, with a backer voting to help add even more stuff to the pledge.
These minis are designed for your standard fantasy game, and are scaled ~32mm with somewhat heroic proportions. They'll look great next to your existing 3D printable figs, HeroForge, Reaper Bones, etc.
Minis are designed to print with zero slicer supports - just drop it on your build plate and print away. Each mini is provided unbased, based on a simple flat base (for you to decorate to your own liking), and also based on a "quick release" bevelled and channeled base (for resin printing, which makes removal from the build plate easy).
In addition to carefully modeling designs to be support free, we have another advantage: I am a software engineer by trade, and developed an algorithm to help check and remove overhangs in the modeling/repair process, which leads to even easier to print minis!
This campaign is easy to understand. There is one pledge level, and it gets you everything pictured on this page! All the minis below are included with your pledge. These minis will be delivered to you as STL files, with all the base options noted above. I've also release a ton of BASES , and am working on another free base pack for this campaign you can use to base these minis if you want more decorative bases.
As new stretch goals are unlocked, I'll add them to the list of included minis below. There's 31 minis in the core pack, and I'm expecting to have nearly 100 minis in this campaign when all is said and done!
** 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 **
"This is a quick and simple Kickstarter, you can either pledge for the 2 Alpha Company packs, or for 6 packs from Classic Movie Miniatures range for the price of five, this pledge can include either or both of the Alpha Company packs, or for all 22 packs shown. We're keeping this straightforward as we want to get the miniatures out to you as quickly as we can and because we have a big classic movie miniatures kickstarter launching shortly that will have stretch goals and loads of models vehicles and terrain, but these 'Super Soldiers' did not fit with the theme of 'Rising Tides' so we decided to separate them out.
This one looks cute!
Also I don't know how to make it fancy but this seems like a good deal for STL files.
Pretty cool stuff, I'm not sure if I'll pledge or not. I have one of their skyships I picked up during one of MMF's holiday sales last year. I should try & print it out sometime.
While I don't use oriental stuff that much in my rpgs, I do like Twin Goddess sculpting style. I'll have to think on this one.
There are still early bird slots at 25 too.
