Free 3D Model: The Ellicoth for Starfinder

ellicoth photo 1

A while back we gave Starfinder a try.

It didn’t really stick but was fun for a while, and I had a good time making some custom monsters to up the cool factor on the gaming table.

This guy, the Ellicoth, is perhaps the most awesome of those things. I can’t really ever sell him, because he’s their IP…but I can give him away!

The stl files to print this model are available on Thingiverse at the link below. He was printed on an FDM printer, at 100 or 200 micron resolution (I can’t remember, it was like a couple years ago), primed with auto filler primer to smooth him out, and then painted up with airbrush and regular brushwork. I think I went from idea to finished piece in like 3 days, and yes, he did make an impressive sight on the gaming table! Anyways, enjoy the free model, and if you print one up, please share some pics with me!!

The Rats of G.I.M. Kickstarter coming soon

Is the quarantine getting you down? Wish you could just sock it to the pandemic? Dark-Platypus Studio has a new adventure that lets you fight back vs a mutation-causing plague of the Ancients with The Rats of G.I.M.

The Rats of G.I.M is a 1st-2nd level adventure for the Mutant Crawl Classic RPG published by Goodman Games.

Your band of Seekers come upon a village that has been beset by a strange plague. The affected villagers are suffering from bizarre out-of-control mutations and eventual madness, and they need you to help. You must track a new breed of bizarre mutant rat back to their source, a long-hidden laboratory of the Ancients. In this underground ruin your Seekers will face many horrifying challenges as they race against time to find a cure for a plague that could threaten all of Terra A.D.

The Rats of G.I.M. Kickstarter features a 40-page full color 8-1/2”x 11” softcover adventure module and includes access to a PDF of printable battle maps. The Mutant Mayhem Minis line of pewter gaming figures has also been expanded with models specific to this adventure to really kick it up a notch.

Check out for more updates, follow us on facebook @darkplatypus for all the latest word, and be sure to head over to to follow the kickstarter itself and be notified by email automatically when it goes live on Tuesday, August 4. Once that magical date has passed, follow the same link to check out all the details and get your pledge in!

Fight back vs the plague, act now!

All of the figures from the successful Mutant Mayhem Minis kickstarter have now been added to the webstore, and are available for immediate purchase. Also, Tentaclopses, which somehow didn’t get relisted a while back, have also been thrown up there.

A few other changes have happened behind the scenes, like: –Hey! The checkout and shipping systems have been repaired, so you can actually buy this stuff!

I’m excited that we have a new Web Guy on board to help us out, and expect to see even more good things happening on the site after The Origins Game Fair. Erica and I are running games there, and pretty much all our time up until then is going to be devoted to getting ready.
