DESIGNED IN THREE DIMENSIONS

Thunderhead Studio is an independently owned and operated 3D design studio specializing in accessories, terrain, and miniatures for tabletop wargaming.

VOICE IN THE STORM

Christopher Wailes, Founder of Thunderhead Studio:

Thunderhead Studio is an natural development of my life over the past 30 years. Throughout high school, military service, and now semi-retired life, the most consistent thread has been a love of tabletop gaming, specifically miniatures. 3D design and printing was a necessary progression from hand-crafting a massive multi-level fortress out of foam in 2005. Thunderhead Studio is what you see today.

I endeavor to make thoughtfully engineered, good-looking, and functional game pieces. Everything I create is ultimately meant for my own tabletop, with quality and attention to detail to be used at my own table. I hope you enjoy it on yours!
