War-Lock Tiles define a 1.25" grid, locking tile system meant for use with 28mm tabletop RPGs and other dungeon crawling games. The overall design is inspired by Wyloch/TrueTiles and is paired with OpenLock Triplex tile bases and a modified OpenLock connector I call the BugBear Connector. This page serves as the hub for all information related to War-Lock Tiles and is the source for the basic tile pieces. (Info on additional tiles can be found below.)
Advantages to War-Lock Tiles:
- NO printed supports required!
- 1.25" grid system allows for 1" miniature bases to fit in all grid spaces
- Integrated walls allow for shared walls and infinite combinations
- Low walls allow players to see everything and use miniatures with expressive poses
- OpenLock Triplex Bases allow for unique tile layouts and offsetting of individual spaces
- Pre-built rooms can be dropped in as your players explore when using the OpenLock Triplex bases.
This set includes:
More tiles can be found in my War-Lock Tiles collection here on Thingiverse as they are released! Feel free to reach out if you're interested in a piece/shape that I have not made yet.
NOTE: These tiles can likely be used at their current scale with any tileset and accessories designed for Wyloch/TrueTiles. Some accessories may need to be scaled up to properly fit/clip over the walls of the tiles.

Any filament should work! I print at .2mm mainly for speed and I like the appearance of the tiles at this layer height, but a finer resolution would provide great results as well!
I also primarily print these with black filament as it removes the need for black primer and I can paint them faster.
Each tile gets super glued to its appropriate base.
- Any base scaled to accommodate the 1.25" grid or Wyloch style of tiles can be used!
I typically place one bead of superglue in each corner of the tile and then hold it to the base with small clamps for a few minutes. This seems to provide a strong enough bond for everyday use on the gaming table.
I will add more information here soon.
I completely understand concerns that these tiles are very similar in design and function to True Tiles. I have actually already discussed this with the creator of True Tiles, Curufin (Ryan). We emailed back and forth multiple times throughout Fall 2018 regarding the tiles and ultimately I asked him if he was fine with me posting them on Thingiverse for free- to which he agreed. They were originally influenced by them, surely, and I developed them as needed for my personal use. At this point, I am just hoping to share them with people and develop it further as my own unique tile system. I don't want to ruffle feathers by any means, this is why I had reached out to Hero's Hoard originally a few months ago.
I completely, 100% recommend checking out Ryan's work at https://www.heroshoard.com/. He is a fantastic designer and has an amazing collection of Wyloch-style tiles available for purchase as well as countless terrain items designed with 3D Printing in mind.
