The Answers You Need
WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND?
TST is a two-person operation. We are both avid Gloomhaven and tabletop fans, so your terrain is being made BY gamers, FOR gamers. One half of the operation is based in Salt Lake City, USA, with the other operating out of Brisbane, Australia. We are both regulars on the Gloomhaven Facebook page and YouTube, and have posted a lot of content showcasing our own personal terrain builds. If you review the Gloomhaven Facebook group, Reddit and YouTube for Lambo Amazeballz and Jay Carter (Facebook)/The15091Bravo (YouTube) you can check out some of our previous work.
WILL THE TERRAIN PACKS INCLUDE ITEMS COMPATIBLE WITH THE GLOOMHAVEN OVERLAY TILES AND EXTRA DETAIL PIECES LIKE BARRELS, FURNITURE ETC?
Our packs contain only what is listed as per the product information, which in term of overlay tiles, constitutes the doors and spike traps. However, we do intend on eventually offering an upgrade pack that contains terrain pieces compatible with the Gloomhaven overlays (such as water, hot coals etc) and a number of extra detail dressings such as barrels etc to have your dungeon looking as blinged out as possible! So watch this space.
WILL YOU BE SELLING THE .STL FILES YOU USE TO PRINT YOUR TERRAIN?
We are not currently selling our .stl print files. However, we are looking into this avenue and may re-assess things down the track.
WHO ACTUALLY MAKES AND PAINTS THE TERRAIN?
We do! We are not outsourcing the terrain production - it is not coming from China. Your terrain will be 3D printed and hand painted exclusively by the two owner operators so you can rest assured that quality and attention to detail will be guaranteed. We pride ourselves on our terrain!
WHAT TYPE OF 3D PRINTERS ARE USED?
TST use well-tuned FDM printers and quality PLA+ filament (Hatchbox and 3D Fillies, the latter a reputable Australian brand). Our printers are either Creality Ender 3s or Creality CR10S Pros.
IS YOUR TERRAIN MAGNETIZED?
No. But if you wanted to make it magnetized, you could certainly add your own quite easily if you prefer, such as adhesive strip magnets to the underside of the hexes.
IS TST OFFICIALLY LICENSED WITH CEPHALOFAIR GAMES?
No. We do not currently have an official license with Cephalofair Games. Whilst our terrain is made by avid Gloomhaven fans and is compatible in every way with Gloomhaven, it is just as well-suited to a host of other tabletop games such as Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Warhammer Shadespire, or any other hex-based system. As terrain that does not feature any specific IP and is designed for compatibility with, and not exclusively for, multiple game systems, no official license is required.
DO YOU ACCEPT ONE-OFF COMMISSION REQUESTS?
Whilst our focus is on supplying our standardized terrain packs, we are always open to receiving one-off commission requests which we will consider. Please email with any such requests.
DO YOU SELL, OR HAVE PLANS TO SELL, 3D PRINTED MINIATURES?
WHAT’S WITH THE NAME?
Talisman Sabre comes from Operation Talisman Sabre, a biennial joint military exercise between Australia and USA. With the two halves of TST being in USA and Australia, naming ourselves after some combined wargames seemed only fitting! 😊
