Welcome to the dwarf city of Karvenheim traveller! On this regularly updated page we're showcasing the latest news and reveals from our upcoming Kickstarter campaign - Karvenheim: Stonebreaker Dwarf Town. Check back regularly to see the collection grow!
This campaign will give you a huge pile of STL files for 3D printing, including dwarf characters and incredible modular scenery. With your support we'll be bringing Karvenheim to life, and that means populating the town with a range of dwarf warriors and special characters suitable for use in both TTRPGs and tabletop wargames. The scenery featured in this campaign is modular, and can be assembled in multiple ways to make a huge variety of large and small buildings.
What you see here is just the start. Our sculptors are hard at work creating even more miniatures and scenery that we'll be adding throughout the campaign to expand both the core collection and for stretch goals. We're grateful for your support. Let's do this!
To make it easier for you to collect what you want, we've split the contents of this campaign into two parts - dwarf army and dwarf town. The Dwarf Army Tier includes the miniatures that make up the defensive forces of Karvenheim, including warriors, boar riders and gunners. The Dwarf Town Tier includes all the modular buildings that make up the settlement of Karvenheim (though many stretch goals also include civilian townsfolk miniatures). We also have a Karvenheim 'All-In' Tier that includes both the Dwarf Army and Dwarf Town collections.
The graphic below shows you exactly what's included in both tiers. This is the 'core collection' - you'll receive everything shown here for your chosen tier, plus any applicable stretch goals.
Note: Dwarf warrior miniatures shown for scale purposes only and are not included in the Dwarf Town Tier.
Every building in Karvenheim is designed with a degree of modularity in mind. At a minimum, each building can be assembled with as many or as few additional floors as you like. You could even build a skyline of towering dwarven skyscrapers!
Versions of the small, medium and large dwarf dwellings will also be supplied broken down into even smaller modular STL components, allowing you to print and assemble entirely new buildings and layouts from the ground up.
Whether you're adding and swapping out floors or building new structures of your own design, every major component includes holes into which you can glue magnets, allowing for easy snap-fit assembly and stability on the tabletop. Note that this isn't essential, and you can simply glue the parts together permanently if you prefer.
To magnetise the buildings in your collection we recommend 5mm x 3mm N35 neodymium magnets. To make it easy for you to source exactly the magnets you need at a great price, we've included packs of magnets as an optional add-on when you pledge for STLs. Additionally, if you order 3D prints, the magnets you need are already included, so there's no need to order extra packs.
Everyone loves stretch goals! If we exceed our funding target we have a mountain of extra miniatures and buildings that will be added to your collection for no extra cost. A few of these are pretty much complete already, others are getting there and some are just wild ideas in the mind of a half-crazed designer at this point. But the more people pledge, the bigger and better Karvenheim gets for everyone!
We'll show many more pictures of these stretch goals as they unlock!
Exceeding our funding goals isn't the only way to get more free content! You can unlock more miniatures for everyone by helping our campaign launch announcement posts reach 2,000 total likes, shares and comments across all of our social media platforms; Twitter, Instagram & Facebook.
No 3D printer? No problem! We'll print the miniatures and buildings for you!
Just choose the minimum 'Order 3D Prints' pledge tier to access add-ons, where you can choose exactly which miniatures and buildings you'd like. All buildings are printed primarily on an FDM printer with selected details printed on a resin printer for superior definition and quality. All army and townsfolk miniatures are printed on a resin printer. All prints are of a high quality as you can see from these examples.
If we receive a very large number of orders for a particular building we'll upgrade it from FDM to cast resin, using casts derived from high quality resin prints!
We ship worldwide. When the campaign ends we will begin the printing and shipping process immediately, and the first orders will ship in April 2022. We aim to fulfill all orders by no later than October 2022.
If you'd like to sell 3D prints of the miniatures and buildings in this campaign, consider pledging for a commercial license. We have tiers offering 1-year licenses for either the dwarf army miniatures, the dwarf town buildings or both. We're also offering a lifetime license that covers everything in the campaign, allowing you to sell Karvenheim prints in perpetuity. All unlocked stretch goals are included in your license too of course!
We work closely with our license holders, giving them everything they need to sell our miniatures successfully. We're also highly responsive and listen closely to our license holders' feedback. We'd love to work with you, and we just know your customers will love our miniatures too!
