3D printed Necron terrain : ƒlƒNƒƒ“ξŒiƒ‚ƒfƒ‹

by David on 2019-07-26 (Fri) 10:21AM

This is a project I wanted to try for quite a while now, and over the past year I've been slowly designing 3D models to print for a Necron-themed gaming board - my printer arrived last week and since then it's been working overtime on all this massive terrain!


So here is a progress blog of Necron terrain as it comes off the printer. For those interested, I've created a site to sell the 3D print files (very cheaply), so you can print your own.

May the xenos of the galaxy reclaim what was once theirs....



Necron landing pad:

3D print files available:

£ This is the first of the terrain pieces - a fairly huge landing pad. The inside is hollow, allowing fanatics to place LEDs underneath and light up their tables!

£ I painted it up in classic black and green colours, to match our Necron gaming mat. Simple, but effective!


£ The view from above is pretty darn cool!

£ Ned the Necron is a happy chappie! Just look at that smile!






Necron Tokens:

£ I thought these would make for fun and simple counters, for command points and so on. Or even objective markers?







Necron ruler:

3D print files available:

Buy it here >>


£ Just a simple 6" ruler, for moving models around the board to crush and destroy those upstart races! This was basically a test print, so see whether the 3D printer could accurately print the symbols I wanted to include on all my terrain. It worked, so now my printer is working overtime trying to crank out some huge pyramids!!






Necron Pyramid:

3D print files available:

Buy them here >>

£ The biggest terrain piece for the Necron board is this massive 3 level pyramid. The sections are modular, so this version has the cut-out doorway with an LED behind it.

£ When space is tight we can limit ourselves to the top 2 levels of the pyramid, which is still just about big enough to hide a Necron monolith behind.

£ Atmospheric pic of the stairwell section, with another green LED inside. We even have a dicetower section on the back, so you can through your dice in one side and have them come bouncing out the front steps.


£ Finally, here's the pic I used for Thingiverse (3D printing filesharing site), with super bright green paint on the symbols.








Necron Power Generators:

3D print files available:

£ Inspired by the Dawn of War video game, the small generator (on the left) was the image that started the whole Necrontyr range. The Both generators have vents in them for LED glow, and both also feature alternative tops, into which you can mount large marbles...


£ ...and here's what the smaller generator looks like with a marble in the top and a small LED underneath. Cool, huh?






Necron Hills:

3D print files available:

Buy them here >>



£ What Necron tombworld board would be complete without lots of multilevel step hills? These were designed to quickly cover areas of the board, and can be clipped together in any number of combinations.

£ This is a 3x3 hill, with straight sections along two sides. As always, they've got vents in them for LED glows, and the corners also have the Necron symbol in them too.

£ The same hill, rotated around to show the step sections. These give easy access to the upper levels of hills.

£ A simple 2x2 hill, made only from corner sections.

£ A larger 3x4 hill, with two central sections both lit from below by LEDs.


£ An example of a two-level hill. You really can make any shape of hill you like, and they'll all look good!






Necron Roads & Bridges:

3D print files available:

Buy them here >>

£ Straight and junction sections that can be combined with the steps and bridge columns to add some multi-level gaming to your tabletop.


Here's a combined shot of the roads with the hill, pyramid and generator prints. Starting to look like a real tombcity now, yes?


£ There's an extra little section of the road designed to fit inside the doorway of the pyramid. I fitted magnets to my road sections, to make it quicker to rearrange them.



£ The curved columns on the bridge can be removed and replaced with other types of column too.






Necron Objectives:

3D print files available:

Buy them here >>

£ Quick set of 6 objective markers, which can be lit with LEDs inside.


£ Each of the objectives has been numbered 1-6 on the top.







Necron City Walls:

3D print files available:

Buy them here >>



£ Probably the last of the big pieces, this set has wall sections and a fairly huge gatetower.

£ The back of the walls include an option to join the walls with the steps, so your troops can get up and down as required.


£ Pretty simple prints - the walkway simply drops into place between the walls. As always, the sections include clips and magnet holes, so you can take your pick how to connect them.





Necron Obelisks:

3D print files available:

Buy them here >>


£ Oh my goodness! These turned out pretty darn HUGE!! I designed plenty of options in this set, which has 33 different pieces. Two different bases, 3 levels of obelisk sections in 5 designs, plus 5 different top sections! sheeeeesh.....


Look how tiny the necron is in comparison!!






Necron Warp Portal:

3D print files available:

Buy it here >>

£ Every Necron tombworld needs a portal to zap in reinforcements! This one comes with space for LEDs underneath, and several options for the disc. This is the "stargate" version - a printed image just stuck on a flat disc....


£... whereas this one is a ripple design that has been 3D printed and then painted in violently bright green!









Necron KillTeam Arena:

3D print files available:

Buy them here >>

£ This set of small scatter terrain was designed primarily to match the official "imperial" version of crates and barrels for KillTeam:Arena, which came out recently. The sacrophagus can be done opened or closed, and I'm quite proud of the glowing green plasma crates.





Necron Dice Tray:

3D print files available:

Buy it here >>


£ The gigantic pyramid (see above) can be fitted with an internal dice tower, but this is a smaller alternative. It's a coffin shaped dice tray, with a removable dice tower. As always, I included space for a green LED.








This was a jungle-covered Necron tombcity board we put together recently for a 3-way KillTeam game. Starting to look awesome!!!






Necron Defence Walls:

3D print files available:

Buy them here >>

£ Just some simple defensive walls and an energy weapon, because people kept asking for a replacement for the Aegis Defence Lines for the imperium.

This is fricking amazing.

Finally, I can recreate the tombworld that I woke up in.
