Corvus Games Terrain: Sector Corvus Prime: Modular 3D Printable Sci-fi Terrain Kickstarter Ending Soon!


Corvus Games Terrain' Sector Corvus Prime: Modular 3D Printable Sci-fi Terrain is ending soon! Make sure to check this awesome Kickstarter now here!

Fully funded 3D printable wargaming terrain to create modular layouts and featuring over 200 STL files to download and print. Scaled for 28mm sci-fi games and compatible with Warhammer 40,000 and Kill Team, Sector Corvus Prime comes with enough variation in floors, roofs, and walls to create epic sprawling game boards to fight over.

All of the models print without the need for supports, and are designed to print vertically for maximum quality on FDM printers. Maximum size will fit average printer beds - 200mm x 200mm. The models have also been test printed by members of the wargaming / 3D printing community.

I've test printed every model using a combination of slicers, including Simplify3D and PrusaSlicer, and printed them on common desktop machines such as the Creality CR10 series, as well as a Prusa Mk2S. Backers will now also receive a WarLayer compatible selection of models appropriate to their pledge. So each pledge level will contain the same amount of WarLayer scaled wall/floor/roof pieces as the OpenLOCK versions. Twice the bang for your buck! There will also be a scaled and converted WarLayer strut/support piece.

Modular terrain is something I am hugely passionate about. I love the idea of using a small number of components and being able to create varied pieces each time. Whether it’s a simple dwelling, an industrial unit or an elaborate warrior monastery, the concept is the same but the outcome has so much more thematic potential.

A handful of common structural parts, a couple of wall tiles, and a drop-in roof can be arranged into the simplest habitation building to grand, towering constructions that look awesome on the tabletop. Perfect for grimdark settings like Warhammer 40k, Necromunda, and Kill Team. So I like to incorporate some level of modularity into most of my terrain designs if possible. I think it lends so much originality to a game board and gives the hobbyist the chance to flex their creative muscles too.

I wanted some modular buildings that worked for multiple sci-fi skirmish games and so focussed on creating a lived-in under hive/industrial setting with some slightly more 'up-market' buildings thrown into the mix. And so, Sector Corvus Prime was born.

Pen and Sword: Wargames Terrain and Buildings - The Napoleonic Wars Book!


Pen and Sword released the Wargames Terrain and Buildings - The Napoleonic Wars Book written by Tony Harwood known from the Dampf's Modelling Page and his expert modelling work for Grand Manner.

Any miniature wargame is greatly enhanced by realistic and evocative scenery and buildings, but commercial ready-made pieces can be expensive. Building your own can be a cost-effective and very rewarding alternative, another hobby in itself, but it can be hard to know where to start. Wargames Terrain and Buildings is a series of books aimed at giving wargamers the skills, techniques and guidance they need to create their own stunning and practical model buildings.

In this volume, master modeller Tony Hardwood shares his years of experience and presents the reader with a wide range of projects for the Napoleonic era. With the aid of step-by-step photographs, he guides the reader through building and finishing each of these models, which are organized in three sections of increasing complexity and encompass a range of scales and different materials. Nine projects are included but the techniques and skills demonstrated along the way, along with valuable advice on tools, construction materials and paints, can be adapted and applied to a much wider range of structures to grace your battlefields.

Grab your own copy of the Wargames Terrain and Buildings - The Napoleonic Wars Book now here at Pen and Sword and learn to make your own wargame buildings like a miniature modelling expert! Check our own review of this book here
