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

Corvus Games Terrain launched their first Kickstarter so launch a range of modular 3D printable 28mm Sector Corvus Prime sci-fi terrain! Check this exciting Kickstarter now here

Why Sector Corvus Prime you ask?

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. 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. 

How does the modular system work?

It’s all very simple really. The struts clip into the the floor component, providing the shell of the structure. The wall panels then slot into the grooves in the struts. The roof surround panel locks them all into place, and finally, the roof plate fits into the roof surround to finish it all off. But here’s where the beauty of modularity kicks in. It’s a simple matter of adding another floor component on top of the walls, instead of the roof surround, to create an upper storey to the building. You could keep going and build a further storey and put a massive structure on the gaming table. Each wall panel is different, so no two structures need to look the same.

On the matter of printability

All of the models print without the need for supports, and are designed for 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. 

Wargame Model Mods: Popular Dynamic Wargame Buildings Kickstarter!

Wargame Model Mods: A brand new Kickstarter launched today from Wargame-model-mods! The Kickstarter is based on kits with movement. To start off there are 15 new buildings, all different and all with their own theme. The kickstarter also features the massive rotary miner, buildings and more

The Kickstarter has individualvideos of each building showing them working and a 360 view of them. These model scenery kits are jammed full of details and little bits such as control pannels, chair and tools. The mechanical parts are 3d printed and use metal bearing where appropiate to make the kits reliable and smooth.

Footsore Miniatures: The Barons' War - 28mm Medieval Miniatures Kickstarter

Footsore Miniatures: The Barons' War - 28mm Medieval Miniatures - New, highly-detailed, 28mm miniatures usable for both sides of the Magna Carta conflict of 1215 - 1217. Check the popular now Kickstarter here

For many years, Andy Hobday - of Footsore Miniatures & Games - has had a great passion for the often overlooked periods of British history. One of these passions is The Barons’ War - an English civil war in the early 13th-Century between rebellious barons (and their French allies) against King John. Andy has been chatting with renowned sculptor Paul Hicks about The Barons’ War for some time now, and earlier this year they decided to put together a range that not only represented the arms and armour of the time, but could be used for a number of different rulesets and other locations too.

These miniatures can be used for games set during The Barons’ War, and not only that, they’ll work for both sides of the conflict! Additionally, they’ll work well for games that take you Crusading in the Middle East, particularly the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Crusades (and a few years/decades either side). Like many of the Footsore ranges, The Barons’ War range will be packed to work well for games like Saga and Lion Rampant. Of course, should the range be very popular, Andy hasn’t ruled out releasing a ruleset of his own.

Wiley Games: Fistful of Lead - Wasteland Warriors Rules

Wiley Games: Wiley Games is proud to present our 11th book to our Fistful of Lead game library, Wasteland Warriors! Check this brand new Fistful of Lead rules supplement now here

In a wargaming world full of gritty, dark post apocalyptic rules we present a weirder, and somewhat goofy take on the end of the world, shaped by hours watching “Thundarr the Barbarian”, reading “Kamandi Last Boy on Earth”, and playing Gamma World. It is a world populated by talking plants, machine gun toting giant squirrels, killer robots and techno-necromancers. Strap on your blaster, take your anti-radiation pills, and hop on your giant rabbit mount. Things are going to get interesting....

Fistful of Lead: Wasteland Warriorsis designed as a quick set of tabletop wargame rules for skirmishes in the Post Apocalyptic future. The rules are easy to learn and still keep the flavor of the genre. What separates Wasteland Warriors from most tabletop miniature games on the marker is the unique card driven turn mechanism. This leads to snap decisions and tense moments where all the players are involved.

For Wasteland Warriors we wanted the play to be fast and furious, with a Hollywood flair to it. For that reason, record keeping is kept to a bare minimum. In most games, each player can control up to 5-6 miniatures without much trouble. Games can have up to 8 players without slowing down the game. Now, you can dig out all your old miniatures gathering dust and have a game set in the Wastelands of the future. Experienced wargamers and new players alike will enjoy this game. It’s perfect for convention games and just one on one skirmishes.

THI IS NOT A STAND ALONE GAME! You will need the Fistful of Lead Corerulebook to play.

There are full rules for building your gang of humans, robots, and mutants, and sending them on campaigns. The book includes rules for mutations and creatures that stalk the Wastelands. 64 pages, black and white.

Wargame Model Mods is currently funding the production of some great-looking and innovative battery powered moving wargame scenery on Kickstarter. Improve your tabletop gameplay experience and the awesomeness of your science fiction wargame tabletop battlefield with this impressive Mining Outpost! 

The mining outpost is a rework of the old promethium rig featuring a brand new platform lay out and adding motorized parts that this Kickstarter is all about. It is a large platform that stands on four tall legs and is a great centre piece. Each leg has two walkways with ladder access, the bottom walkways are also connected with a bridge.  The top platform has two rooms with internal access via removable rooves. Two lifts that allow access from the floor.Each lift supports a platform, one a landing pad and the other, a cargo area with crane. The centre has a large building with the mining tower in the centre, this houses the top part of the rotating drill, the underneath of the platform has the drill head which also rotates. The kits has lots of little details such as transport carts, railing etc.
