Hi All,

Just to give everyone a heads up about my new (and 1st!) Kickstarter project

Modurail !

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/watcorpdesigns/834916939?ref=9vhrg7&token=2cf2ce6c

This project will be going live tomorrow evening

I have designed a 3d printed monorail system for use with 28mm future wargames like 40k, necromunda, killteam, etc

Track is V shaped and trains can be slid along to move during games if desired.

Passenger car has sliding doors that allow models to be placed inside.


Main focus of project is to provide STL files for users to print at home but I have included a number of pledges to allow people to buy ready made models. Due to the large amount of print time to make these are limited as I only have so much capacity

Stretch goals will add additional train carriage and engine designs.

Goal is to provide additional funds to grow the range available in my ebay store and to expand into other, higher volume production techniques.

Level 1 designs have all be run and test printed on a number of low to mid price printers to ensure robustness.

Thanks for reading and hope to see you on Kickstarter tomorrow (tell you friends!)

Cheers

That looks pretty cool. Nice work.

If I may make a suggestion. Could you make the roof lift off? It would make it much easier to get into the interior. Also I would suggest a wagon compatible with GW munitoru. Containers, and maybe with so.e 9f the other containor kits out there.

Thanks for looking guys!

Flinty - the roof is separate currently to allow fitting of the sliding doors. modifying to keep it removable shouldn't be a problem

Good idea on the munitorum crates - was something I had in my mind too and its a good idea to buy a Sector Munitorum kit "for the business"


Lord_blackfang, Fifty - Glad you like the stairs. They are available from my ebay shop

https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/watcorpdesigns

I have full size ones and shorter ones that are compatible with my 1/2 height platform supports.

Speaking of your ebay store what is everything made of? Resin?

The vast majority (all the terrain stuff) is 3D Printed in PLA+ plastic. The smaller bits like the shotguns are resin printed in high detail

Here's an exploded image of how the rail car goes together. Sliding doors now hook around the frame to allow the roof to be removed during play.

Also shows the base connectors


Still hoping to launch tonight so watch this space!

Few questions.

The train track, sorry if its mentioned but how long is it? 4 feet or 6. Just wondering if it will go across the table in anyway.

Also the cargo cars. Do they fit the minitorum armored containers GW has?

Hi Str00dles

Track straights are 200mm corners are 200mm also but coverage depends on whether you select the 45 or 55o angle

if you have STL files you can print as much as you like - the pre-printed reward levels are for 8 sections of track of your choice.

I havent tested the original flatbed design with the munitorum containers but due to the interest in this I have bought a few containers and I'm in the process of designing an additional carriage that will accomodate them.

Hope this helps.

Any other info needed please let me know!

After a number of requests I have made a second version of the Flatbed carriage that will accomodate the Munitorum Conatiners
