Crowdfunding Spotlight: Pop-Up Miniature Terrain Paper Kits by Stonehaven Miniatures Kickstarter

20 Jun

 

I wanted to highlight this great and innovative kickstarter campaign for some really useful and unique looking paper terrain. As you know, I do like paper kits, especially for wargaming purposes, its an easy and cheap way of getting plenty of scenery ready for wargaming and RPGs as and when you need it, although it can be a little time consuming and fiddly for some, it can also be quite an enjoyable passtime just making the stuff too. This one is like nothing else I’ve seen in a long time, from Stonehaven miniatures is a real good option for those of you who are limited to storage space or need to transport your stuff from place to place.

Its pop up, very much like what you’d find inside the typical kids pop up book, but far more detailed and really clever. By backing the project, you can either get the kits already printed, or simply the access to the PDF files so you can print out as many hexes of terrain as you so wish. Although the monochrome appearance might not to be everyones taste, I rather like the aged sepia coloured scheme. this does not seem to have stopped them from smashing their funding goal, and indeed, now that KS has finally let me log in, I’ve backed it too!

I do think these hex based terrain kits are lovely, and I look forwad to taking a crack at creating a whole board of these for some fantasy skirmish games (scaled down of course, 15mm is my bag) which is precisely why I’ve opted for the PDF files!

If you want to get some for yourself, get on over to the KS page and make a pledge!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Tabletop Towns Castle Kickstarter

15 Aug

If you remember a little while ago, I mentioned the Tabletop townspaper models KS on here. I must say that in my previous post, I did actually make a blooper about the price of the set (I said £20 a set, rather than the real price of £10 for the set of 6)

Well, anyway, tabletop towns are back with the latest addition to the growing range, this time with a castle! I do admit, I’m rather partial to paper terrain as it is, and I like stuff like this, which is a good step up from the last ones. Whenever I see some nice scenics that I like, it makes me want to have a game of oldhammer/warhammer with my orc army, as I an see this being extremely useful for all sorts of scenarios involving castles, walls and the like. This time I think they are really onto a winner, as gone are the rather blocky, box like buildings fro the first set, and now the new KS designs are more intricate and interesting. I do hope that in the future we are going to see Tabletop towns go from strength to strength with more and more varied and interchangable designs (maybe some 15mm/20mm moderns or scifi would be really nice if your listening guys! See the latest Hawk Wargames card city boxed set for what I mean!!)

Seriously, any reservations I had about the first KS is gone with this set, its plain to see that the team have definitely learned and improved upon the whole idea this time, and with extra editions of door details etc printed on creditcard plasticard for extra durability, I can see lots of potential for this as well as bags of replayabilty for tons of different games.

I am sure that this time, the price for a set is £20, but you can still get additional sets of the last KS for £10 by adding it to your pledge, as well as options for resin door details.

With only 18 days to go, if you want to get in on this KS, there’s still plenty of time to get involved, so check out the link below and get your hands on a set!

Ciao!
