Bell Tower and Sept

(13 customer reviews)


The Ruined Bell Tower & Sept is part one of three for the Ruined Church set in the Shadowfey Ruins. It has detail lavished all over it with fallen beams, rubble, and growths of ivy. Using the Modular Stacking Ruins system, you can set it up at different heights with room for miniatures to fit inside each tower floor.

This product is part of the Shadowfey Ruins Add-on. Please log in if you backed the campaign.

This product is delivered as a .ZIP file pack containing STL files for use on a home 3D Printer. The files are set to 28mm scale but can be rescaled before printing.


The tolling of the church bell was once a call to the masses to worship, where all from the city could gather, share news and receive blessings.  Now, the tower stands silent, the only living things attending this once sanctified edifice are vermin and weeds. It’s a wonder it’s still standing.

    Hello there. Cool model. An issue is that part D doesnt connect to the printer base in the slicer so it creates a spagetti monster. I had to lower it 1 mm to be able to print it. Dont know why though

    • Mike (verified owner)

      Hi lybban,

      Thanks for pointing that out. We’ve updated the piece so it shouldn’t be a problem.

    I’m really enjoying this as my first big printing project! It’s an impressive and beautiful structure. However, I am having issues with the vertical belltower pieces not fitting together nicely. They do fit but its very tight and a little uneven. I’m definitely exerting more force to attach and detach the pieces from what I usually see in your videos. The prints are otherwise perfect.

    I’m happy to sand down my printed parts until they fit, but is there anything I can do to fix this for future copies? I did rescale all prints to 104% of original size to make them a touch bigger, could this be the problem?

    • Mike (verified owner)

      Some of the bricks’ small angles might need a little sanding for them to come off easily. When it’s a large piece like the bell tower, we tend to make them tight rather than loose, so they don’t collapse mid-game. The scaling might change it slightly but not by much.

    Is it possible to make a version that fits on a prusa mini? (180mm max)

    • Mike (verified owner)

      Hi Jeppz,
      The largest dimension of a piece of it is 184mm. You could scale it to 96% and it would fit on a prusa mini. The piece in question (Piece A pt2) would be difficult to cut further without compromising the print.
      Hope that helps 🙂

    Hi, is small printer option planned?


    • Mike (verified owner)

      Hi Fabrizio!

      Thanks for the suggestion! We will add that to our list of model updates so you should receive an email when its done 🙂

    May I ask for a upgrade for this model, a bell tower would have had a series of openings directly under the bel to be able to ring it from ground level with a rope, this would also give us the opportunity to add ladders from the Gangways and ladders set, making the tower MUCH more wargame friendly

    • Nicholas Jebson (verified owner)

      That is a neat idea. We will add it to the list of possible updates.

    What is a sept?

    • Matt Barker

      A place of worship. Prayer in a Sept is done to each of the seven faces of the god that one wishes to ask for aid

    Just used this awesome terrain in a 40k game yesterday. Made for an awesome ruined shrine world vibe. Great design. Easy to print and paint!

    I’m having a heck of a time getting the railings on Part H to print. I’ve tried dropping my speed as low as 25% to no avail. They keep breaking off about halfway up. Any tips?

    • Mike (verified owner)

      Hi Jerry,
      Do you have z-hop retraction enabled? That can help with printing thinner parts like that. Also just making sure your printer is on a steady surface that doesn’t wobble when the extruder moves.
      If you’re still having troubles after trying the retraction email us at [email protected] with your slicer settings and we’ll see what else we can help with

    Love this model (and the rest of the range)! I’ve been printing a bunch for Frostgrave, but the ivy doesn’t really fit the theme. Any chance of ivy-less options in the future?

      Hey Christopher,

      Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll add it to our list of possible model updates when we review this piece.

    Is my build plate big enough to print this set?

    Hi, I have some problems with the H file. the small pillars of the railing break everytime I print it. Do you have any suggestions what I could do to fix it?

    • Mike (Printable Scenery) (verified owner)

      You could try lowering the printer head speed and enabling retraction (if you haven’t already), often these kind of breaks occur if the printer head hits the narrow part during printing.

  12. Paul Hamilton (verified owner)

    Anyone have any success with printing H rails on fdm?
    if so what settings did you use?
    printed over eight times here. still all fails.
    ender 3, cura 4.8, enabled retraction, z hop when retracted, 25mm print speed.

    I even made the infill on the rails 85%, and tree supports.

    • Mike (Printable Scenery) (verified owner)

      Hi Paul,

      Thats tough! Seems like your settings are fine though I’d recommend updating Cura to the latest version, it could make a slight difference, especially when generating supports.
      To help diagnose the issue could you send some photos of the fails and your slicer settings through to [email protected] that’ll give us an idea of how best to help.

    Is there a reason why there isn’t a combined A file?
    I have a printer that can do it size wise, but before I attempt the impossible I’m just checking if there’s a reason why I shouldn’t 🙂

    • Jo Boorer (verified owner)

      You can combine both A parts to print.
