Geek Native tracks Kickstarter launches for RPG products in a section of the site called Heat. All RPG books or zines go in with some minis, STLs, and dice as a rule of thumb. The idea is to capture a representative example of the industry.
In quantity terms, more and more STL files are being listed. Why? They’re making up more and more of the Kickstarters and getting better and better. Ola Andersson’s Nirmala City Tiles is an example; the finished product looks excellent if you have the skills and technology to make it. If you do, you can snap up Ola’s magnetic designs through the campaign.
There are 29 days left to get involved with the project.
The campaign has hit its funding goal, so we’re on track for digital delivery. It’s the 7th campaign for Ola and builds on a previously established track record.
Nirmala City Tiles are not the typical 28mm scale; it’s 15mm instead. Why? So a whole city fits on your table and yet you can still, as Ola does, use 28mm minis with it. They’ve used this approach for a Warhammer Fantasy RPG game.
12 city tiles are available, and they have “half walls” so you can see inside houses and maintain that city feel. The designs also include space for optional D4x2 magnets so you can snap the tiles together, but please note, those aren’t included.
Ola’s designs can also be mirrored in the slicer if you have the skills to create variants.
Pieces are maximum 150x150x23 mm. So they are not individual pieces of furniture or terrain but complete sections of a city that can be combined to form the scenes for many adventures. No supports needed!
A pledge of SEK125 (about £11) will get you all the STL files but limited to private use.
Step up to SEK285 (about £24), and you get a commercial printing license which means you can make and sell these tiles yourself.
Delivery for both tiers is in February 2022.
