Tempest Assault Force: Kickstarter läuft

Aktuell läuft ein Kickstarter für gepanzerte Fahrzeuge und einen Mech zum selber drucken oder aus Resin.

Tempest Assault Force

Tempest Assault Force 1

28mm scale mech model and armoured vehicles for sci-fi wargames. 3d printable STL files and physical pledges available.

Hi, my name is Aaron Prior and I run Culverin Models. I have previously run several successful Kickstarter campaigns and I would now like to present my latest project.


This campaign features a selection of 28mm scale warmachines and a scenery set based around a maintenance facility. Both digital and physical pledge levels are available.

The Tempest Assault Mech

This massive machine of war has been designed to withstand heavy punishment whilst dishing out huge amounts of fire in return. In a neutral standing pose with no weapons the Tempest measures 190mm tall, 180mm wide and 92mm deep making it quite a hefty model!

The Tempest has a wide range of parts it can be equipped with;

Tempest Assault Force 9

  • 2 heads
  • 3 shoulder weapons; rocket launcher, missile launcher and gatling gun

Armoured Support

There are four armoured vehicles that are often sent out to support Tempest Assault Mechs;

  • Dauntless Troop Carrier

  • Defiant Tank Destroyer
  • Cerberus Flame Tank

All four of these tanks are included in the STL pack and are available as physical rewards.

The Maintenance Facility

The Maintenance Facility is a small depot for the repair and arming of Tempest Assault Mechs and the supporting armoured vehicles. The bulk of the set is made up of the hangar with a movable gantry crane but it also features walkways that can be added to the edges of the hangar to make a whole network of walkways.

This terrain set is included in the STL file package but is also available as a PLA printed physical reward.

    • Solange du nur in GW-Läden spielst, bleibst du davon verschont.

      Ich mags auch nicht. Es gibt Firmen, die können Alternative GW-Modelle herstellen, die auch 40k-Charme versprühen, aber die Dinger könnens nicht. (Ich brauchte echt ganze zwei Minuten, um zu erkennen, für welches Spiel die gemacht sind.)

      • Das hält die Leute nicht ab.

        Letztens hatte sich jemand in einer der 3D Druck Gruppen bei FB beschwert das man ihn in seinem GW gebeten hat seine zu 90% selbst gedruckten DKoK wieder einzupacken und er hat nicht verstanden warum.

        Hier find ich aber eigentlich nur die Lieblosigkeit mit der die Modelle hingeklatscht wurden schlimm.

        Die wirken nicht mal wie gewollt aber nicht gekonnt sondern nicht gewollt und trotzdem ne schnelle Mark abgreifen.

      • Selbst gedruckt sagte ich doch, also im context deiner Frage 3rd Party Anbieter.

        FW Abgüsse hätte niemanden gestört, zu einen hat einer der ehemaligen Angestellten in dem GW Sachen von Z (wer ihn kennt weiß was gemeint ist wer nicht braucht es nicht wissen) hinter dem Tressen vertickt.

        Und zum anderen sieht man den Unterschied nicht wenn Farbe drauf ist. Ausser man kennt die Teile, der Contemptor den die Pigmentpiraten mal bei der Tactica in der Vitrine hatten hat den selben Gussfehler den alle von Z haben (vermuttlich auch ein paar von FW der muss ja irgendwo herkommen).

        Und dann kratzt es im GW niemanden (ausser du lässt dich erwischen das nen anderes Thema)

  • Der ganze Mech ist total lächerlich aufgebaut.

    Was mich ja am meisten stört sind die Auspuffrohre. Aber gut. Wers braucht…..

  • Ich finde die haben einen gewissen Charme. Ich musste an Iron Harvest denken und denke auch, dass es eher in diese Richtung gehen sollte. Ich muss zugeben, ich habe den Text nicht gelesen. 😅

  • Da scheint mir das WWI-Design gründlich schief gegangen zu sein. Einfach zu schlicht und zu kastenförmig… mich begeistert es jedenfalls komplett nicht.

  • Och, ich finde die eigentlich ganz lustig. Greift etwas den Charme der Pappmodelle von Ende der 90er, frühe 00er auf. Die ganzen Origami und Pappcybots und -titanen damals waren ja oft ähnlich dynamisch.
    Allerdings weiß ich nicht, warum man sich mit solch einem Modell zufrieden geben sollte, wenn es die Modelle Vidovic Arts gibt.

  • Richtig schlechtes Design. Die Nieten sollen wahrscheinlich darüber hinweg täuschen, der Schuss ging aber besonders bei den Ketten nach hinten los.
    Wem‘s gefällt…

  • Ich hab erst gedacht die Modelle sind im 15mm Maßstab. Für 40k finde ich zumindest dden Läufer nicht wirklich geeignet, eher vielleicht für was in Richtung Weird WW I / II.
