Working on the moulds as we speak. So far planning on the armoured cab and the tanker and hauler rears for wave 1 release. The majority of the accessories will remain 3d printed and will be out at the same time.
In addition to the physical release of Modutruck I'm looking to release a terrain kickstarter that I've been working on in the background for a lot of last year.
This project differs from other 3d printed terrain kickstarters in that it is designed to allow assembly and disassembly. This allows potentially 1,000s of different setups using relatively few printed parts and is a lot easier for storage rather than having to find somewhere for complete buildings.
Project is due to launch on the 29th of Feb so I'm still open to comments, requests and ideas for more files.
Currently I have large numbers of walls, pillars, roofs, pipework, silos, walkways, gantries designed and tested with cranes, opening doors, weapons and more on the cards.
Someone over on the Necromunda forum was asking about scale vs other terrain.
The wall sections are 72x72 (same as original Necromunda bulheads) They are slightly higher than the Zone Mortalis sections but close enough to look like a step. Height is the same as the GW Plasma coil terrain. At 2nd level there is a greater difference between Modu-fab and Zone Mortalis/Sector Mechanicus. Interestingly this is the exact same distance as a single set of Zone Mortalis stairs. I'll also add my own stairs and ramps to bridge this height difference in the KS files.
Also in picture are the first runs of the pipes that can be added to the buildings

Been doing some work on some armoured precinct walls for one of the stretch goals (fingers crossed KS gets this far). Used 2 pots of Lead Belcher painting up examples pieces yesterday, will post pics soon.
Quick preview of some of the walls and floors for the Armoured Precinct file set. Currently this is a stretch goal for the incoming Modu-Fab kick starter. The plan is to start with the industrial file set, then add more "themed" expansions like this as the project (hopefully) progresses. Got this Precinct done, a corridor set for more "Space hulky" type environs, as well as a"Meat Processing plant" and Fortress in the works but I'm open to other ideas if project does well.
Only 15 days to the launch of the Modu-Fab 3d printable terrain Kickstarter. All the files for the Industrial Terrain set are completed and I'm working on the stretch goals.
I'm looking for some feedback to deliver these in the order they are requested by the community - now's your chance to influence the direction of the kickstarter
As it stands they are:
1 – Additional pipe runs and connections including smoke stacks
2 – Guard Towers and Walls
3 – Armored Precinct
4 – Corridor Upgrades
5 – Meat Processing Plant 6 –AA guns, Cannons and Big Search Lights for Precinct
7 – Power Plant
8 – Fortress featuring Orbital Cannons, Gates and Missile Silos
I'm looking for feed back on the order of the themed stretch goals 5,7 and 8. Let me know which ones you want 1st!
Any other requests or additional themes please let me know!
The more I see, the more I have a soft spot for your gear.
Are those truck parts still available?
Do you have bundles for the terrain?
