Kickstarter Watch – Thunder Chrome 2: 3D printable Sci-Fi scenery for wargames

I’m rather fond of 3D-printable scenery, as you might have noticed J. There seem to be more and more companies supplying us with a varied crop of STL-files now, which is good for the future of 3D-printing.
Here’s another kickstarter, Thunder Chrome 2, with some rather nice scenery for your 3D-printer, this time Sci-Fi themed. 
An example of what you can build from the €20-pledge
The €45-pledge gives you more to play with
Pledges go from €20 to 80 and will give you access to some or all of the rather plentiful stretch-goals, and also add-ons.
What I think looks most interesting is the modular concept that look easy to use and very handy, as it should make it possible to build quite a lot of different buildings with a modest investment.
The €60-pledge adds hab-blocks
Another cool feature is the possibility to add battle-damage (or rather subtract it) during play.
If you pledge €80 you'll get access to the battle-damaged pieces and more.
There are of course a lot of stretch-goals already reached, adding more value to each pledge.
One of the stretch-goals
This looks very promising and if you’re interested in Sci-Fi scenery and own or have access to a 3D-printer I think it worthwhile to check out.

Another one
Thunder Chrome 2 runs until June 30.
If you’re interested in more 3D-printable-terrain kickstarters then look here.
I hope to repair my (not to brilliant) printer in the not too distant future and/or buy a new one. Then I’ll try to review as much stuff as possible from all manufacturers I have stl-files from.

    1. Another reason to get a 3D-printer. There are an awful lot of them now :-)
      Also a reason to try to repair mine. It's broke down again... :-(
