I am a big fan of Thierry's work for THMiniatures, over the past several years he has been building up a line of large fantasy-themed terrain with a Confrontation aesthetic that looks amazing on the tabletop regardless of the system you plan on using it with.

The Pit // THMiniatures

Up until now all of these hand sculpted pieces have been cast in resin and shipped from Canada, and that probably the only issue people had with these magnificent miniature scenery pieces was getting their hands on them. However, that is no longer an issue, for some people at least, as THMiniatures has launched the first of their STL files for a range of Confrontation scenery.

The Pit Rear // THMiniatures

The initial set is sculpted in a similar design to both the Ragnarok and Ruins sets and consists of the large centre-piece you can see above, the Pit, ruined walls, and a ramshackle fence. The all feature the distinctive angled spirals that become so iconic in the artwork and design of Confrontation when Thierry worked at Rackham and lend a subtle flair to the models without making the pieces overly complex to print and paint.

The terrain should also prove very robust once printed as with his resin work there are no delicate fragile pieces on the scenery that need to be wrapped in cotton, these are after all gaming pieces and as such need to be able to stand up to the rigours of gameplay. The files themselves are both unsupported and presupported so depending on your own level of expertise with printing you can find the one that works best for you and are designed for 32mm scale. If printed at 100% it will give you pieces of the following sizes

  • 1 x Pit   23 x 15 x 5 cm
  • 1 x Part of wall 5 x 1 x 3,5 cm
  • 1 x Fence 14 x 7 x 4 cm
  • 1 x Wall 14,5 x 6 x 4 cm

Despite not being a 3D printer myself I think this is a genius idea from Thierry to spread his work to a wider audience and I'm sure that the Confrontation community that is still going strong will be on board with these right from the off. With the Ruins being his first project all those years ago I am hoping to see him expand into the other themes over time, there are currently eight uniquely different ranges that he makes and I can't wait to see what he tackles next. Whatever it is I am sure it will be worth your time in exploring.

What game will you be using these with?
