Kickstart Monday: Fire Stations and Amusement Parks

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour platforms like Kickstarter, Gamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing since I was providing these recommendations already. So why not share my thoughts with a weekly blog about projects that interest me?

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

The Long Halloween Batman Miniature Game tournament I ran back in October is passed, but the energy of coming off a successful event is still high. That makes me excited about new terrain projects I can add to the tables as these tournaments continue to grow. Fortunately, there are a few modern terrain projects active on Kickstarter right now. Let’s dive into the couple I am most excited about.

Famous NY Fire Station STL Printable

The Famous NY Fire Station STL project from Bad Roll Games is an iconic building seen in one of our favorite 80’s movies. This iconic design, made famous by Ghostbusters, has been replaced in MDF terrain by TTCombat and others. Indeed, I actually own the TTCombat MDF piece. Yet, there is something about the additional detail that is part of the designs Bad Roll puts into their STLs that makes me very intrigued about this piece.

In addition to the Fire Station, there are a few accessories that are included that you can print to add more character to your firehouse or scenic table. Utility cabinets, sheds, and other little tidbits that are different than what I have seen offered in other projects for urban scatter.

If you are like me and are interested in building a table based on this iconic NY City Fire Station then you should consider backing this project.

Welcome to Rocket Park – 3D Printable Terrain

The Welcome to Rocket Park Project from Constantinos Caropoulos features an amusement park terrain set that you can print as either ruined or in working order. For me, one of the most iconic locations in Gotham City is Amusement Mile. That amusement park, run down and taken over by the Joker, is dark and creepy and so much different than another table of Urban two and three-story buildings on a generic street.

Much of this amusement park is also very modern so could easily become a themed table for a DC or Marvel Super Hero game. Of course, the ruined pieces work really well for your post-apocalyptic games. With a Ferris Wheel, Merry-Go-Round, Bumper Cars, Fence, Vending Machines, and more, there is plenty to really start to fill in a table of terrain.

If you are a modern or post-apocalyptic wargamer and you need a table of terrain that isn’t the same old city board then you should definitely check out this project.

Kickstart Monday: Medieval and Wasteland Building STLs

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour over platforms like KickstarterGamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing since I was providing these recommendations already. So why not share my thoughts with a weekly blog about projects that interest me?

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

This week on Kickstart Monday I found a few projects for the 3D printer I thought were intriguing. Whether you are looking for some historic buildings to fill in that medieval game or you are playing a wartorn or wasteland game there are projects here that should intrigue you!

Medieval Town

Medieval Town from 3D Fortress offers some great, historically based, medieval structures for your gaming table. These models are scaled for 28mm models, but can be easily upscaled if you need it for larger scale games say 32mm scale. The amount of detail is quite impressive in what’s shown. On top of that, something you don’t see a lot with these projects is assembly instructions!

The towers and walls have several assembly options to customize them to your needs. The most exciting part of this project, for me, is the decor. Carts, wagons, and crates of produce that you can use to create a full-blown medieval market. My mind jumps to imagining an adventuring group being jumped by the local thieves guild in a medieval market and having my players have to deal with the various parts of the market as well as various people at the market and perhaps even the town guard at some point.

If you are like me and can imagine great stories around this terrain then perhaps this is a project you should check out!

Wasteland Memorable Buildings

Wasteland Memorable Buildings from Bad Roll Games is the next STL project from this creator. This is a creator I have supported previously and am printing is Mansion project currently. These models have pretty incredible detail and scale well for 28-32mm games.

There are three buildings included in this project. Each of them is modeled to look as if it has not been used for years and the decay is designed brilliantly into each one. These are great models to add to a post-apocalyptic or wasteland terrain table. Whether that’s for a game like Fallout or you are doing something where some of your tables have modern urban modern decay these buildings will help you fill out that table with great terrain.

If you are looking for great urban decay buildings to fill in your table then you should check out this project!
