Legends of Terra – STLs

Legends of Terra [is a collection of] 70 small-scale building models (building height from ~10 to 40mm) that includes 14 factions. We’ve created buildings for 14 factions, inspired by the famous board game Terra Mystica. The miniatures are fully compatible with the game, but also compatible with a lot of small-scale RPGs and board games. They are all optimized for supportless printing and have all been test printed in a standard Creality Ender 3 (FDM). The models work fine for resin printers, too.

Pledges start at $9 for the base set.

Spread across 2 books, Dusk and Twilight, these gorgeous maps detach from your book binder, folding out to a huge 25 x 25 inches and 18 x 22 inches, respectively. Each highly-detailed map has a unique variant on the reverse side for those quick scene changes ranging from; night, destruction, terrain, otherworldly, and more! (All maps have a standard 1-inch grid.)

And what does a tabletop map need most? That’s right – they’re dry erase! Scribble away!
