 Taui Landing Pad

Taui Landing Pad

Styled in distinctive rounded shapes, this landing pad is perfect for hi-tech and advanced sci-fi alien settings. This landing pad is designed with several unique features - a removable force shield can be swivelled around during play to provide protection against incoming fire, and the energy lift can be lowered to ground level or raised to the height of the landing pad surface.


The landing pad measures approximately 390mm x 335mm (16" x 13"), with a height of 50mm (2"), and can easily accommodate flying tanks and vehicles on its 250mm (10") diameter pad, such as the T'au Hammerhead common to the Warhammer 40,000 setting. The force field on top adds another 85mm (3½"), for a total height of 135mm (5½").


This large terrain piece has been designed with clear PLA filaments in mind. The outer shell and pad surface is approximately 2mm thick, and by printing in your choice of clear or colour-tinted 3D printer filament, you can easily add lighting effects with clusters of LED lights inside the building. Please see the photos of the painted model for examples.


A variety of different designs have been included for the energy lift and inset symbols (hexagons and geometric layouts), which can be arranged to suit your needs and to customise your terrain. No print supports are required for this model.
