CAN you explain the colors you used for these? I love the colo scheme

Are supports needed? Also how does your printer survive a twenty hour print...?

Why is everyone going up by 180% for 28MM, when I go up by 110% for 30-40MM? I made it so the ceiling is 40.2 MM high, should fit most characters...

Hey dude!

What size scale would you recommend to put it up for Pathfinder/ Starfinder size?

This response is a tad late, but hey better late than never.
Second: Most Starfinder, Pathfinder and D&D characters are 25MM scale. Thusly, in your slicer program, set the scale to 1.693333-. (This would actually be for 25.4MM or 1 Inch). The equation to find this is: Model Scale (In Millimeters) / Current Scale of object (In MM) = Scaling factor in slicer

~Hope this helps, let me know how it works out. I'll be printing this soon as well.


Another amazing set of buildings - any chance you can do it without the balcony for variety and add in the description if support must be used please? I'm concerned with wasting filament if it messes up at the windows - printing 95% to fit a Duplicator i3 Mini print area, otherwise another great effort as always from the team!

Dude your stuff always looks sick painted

would it be possible for you to adjust the middle level so that the balcony does not add to the footprint of the house? or just make a middle tier without the balcony please.

For scaling to 28mm, I take it? Yeah, we've got a few variants we'll be posting soon. Keep an eye out.

I notice your Wayfarer Tactics core set is at 18mm scale, while this terrain is at 15mm. Is that a typo, or is there a reason for it?

Oh, haha, I could definitely see that being confusing. But no, we actually design models for 15mm, 18mm, and 28mm scales. We put a scale indicator next to the title of whatever model we post (we'll probably start making some 6mm stuff soon). As for Wayfarer Tactics, it can be played at any scale, and there's some guidelines for that in the codex, but we made the starter set in 18mm. You can totally upscale 15mm terrain/vehicles for 18mm scale, just increase the model by about 120%.

wow these are awesome. anyone know to convert to 28mm what scale modifier you would use? I think necromunda and other 28mm scifi players would love to use these as well.

Oh, for sure! Scale up by 180% to get to 28mm. Added it to the profile. We'll be doing that as well, as we have a lot of 28/heroic models as well.

I can't find the fantasy bridge at the end of the video, is it on thingiverse?

Oh, haha, no, that's at our local game shop. The character models are ours. We could make that though, should we?

This looks insanely good. Well done.

Looks really cool!

Have you considered including 2D specification files so one could see the foot print without having to download the files? (similar to an Auto-CAD drafting file)

Hey, thanks! Oh, uh... yeah, I don't really know how to do that. Is that an easy process? People can just look at the thing view and rotate and all that, right? You don't need to download it to do that.

The process I'm talking about would be something like this stock'ish' image from google, https://www.google.com/search?q=2d+draft+example&espv=2&biw=1920&bih=947&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiktIXljpLMAhUimoMKHdWsCXgQ_AUIBigB#imgrc=YMFatetgzU4dWM%3A

It is pretty simple depending on what software your using to design these, I assume you use some sort of blender like software for your actual models, do you use the same for your terrain?

In solid works, for example, there is a 'create drawing from...' feature in the the 'new' items tab.

I guess just getting to the main point I wanted to know the dimensions of your 15mm version. Height, length, and width.

Oh, that's awesome, but... yeah, I use TinkerCAD. I don't think that have such a feature. BUT... I do use Blender a bit, and I'm learning more and more. Maybe one of these days I'll look into it.

Oh, but you know... I could pretty easily put together an image like that from a render with metric X, Y, and Z measurements.

Would be exactly what I wanted. Just wasn't sure how to say it to make sure we both understood!

Oh snap, you are on a roll! :) Making some gorgeous terrain there.

Thanks, Jennifer!

Very cool!
Another perfect piece for Shadowrun!

Any advice for adding interior walls?

Thanks! Yeah, we're working on wall/room inserts, but you could definitely add your own. It would be easy enough to do that in TinkerCAD or something, but you could also use foamcore/plasticard.
