A 3D printable medieval monastery for tabletop games
Wightwood Abbey is a digitally sculpted, beautifully detailed, fortified medieval monastery. It includes a chapel, scriptorium, abbot’s house, stables and gatehouse (as well as numerous stretch goals). Wightwood Abbey has been designed with the utmost attention to both form and functionality to bring out the most in your roleplaying or wargaming experience. Each building contains multiple floors for when the gameplay needs to move indoors. Wightwood Abbey will be first available through Kickstarter and launches March 21st, so please follow us on social media for updates and we hope you’ll join us for the campaign!
Designed to meet your gaming needs
Each building has removable floors and rooftops and can be opened up to reveal a fully modelled playable interior. Buildings separate at just the right height for internal gaming to be obstruction free, and our peg system allows for easy separation and reattachment of sections. As well, passageways and play areas have been modelled to accommodate standard 1” bases, so you’ve always got enough space to move your figures about.
During our Kickstarter campaign, we’ll be posting updates of the interior modelling process, so make sure check back regularly for live Zbrush streaming!
Our .stl files are scaled to print at a 28mm tabletop standard (for ease of use with most roleplaying and tabletop miniature games) and are supplied as such. However, we have also made sure that models scaled to ½ size also print properly and can be incorporated into any 15mm historical wargame.
Our models will print on any standard 8″x8″ printer bed with minimal need for support material. We’ve carefully tested wall thickness, overhangs, potential bridging issues and other 3D printing pitfalls and have incorporated the most efficient way to print each part (given the variation of printers out there) into our final .stl files.
Our vision of tabletop terrain is one rooted in historical realism. For this reason our buildings reference the general construction conventions of historical architecture (with a good dose of our own professional aesthetics). We wanted to make terrain sets that feel accurate and immersive and have used our extensive collection of reference material, location photography and years of personal experience in the construction business to bring realism, texture and richness to our designs.
