New Terrain Boards Kick Starter!

Postby Mattman » Thursday 7th November, 2013 5:13 pm

For those who haven't seen it yet, Games and Gears will be starting a Kick Starter on Saturday (9th) to fund production of a range of 2ft by 2ft terrain tiles. Sets of 6 tiles are expected to retail around £125 (significantly cheaper then the Realms boards), but through the KS, sets will be available for the first thousand people at a price of £62. I believe there will be 5 themes to choose from:

10mm Sci fi Urban (based on the designs from Drop Zone Commander)
28mm Sci fi Urban (again based on DZC but upscaled for 28mm)
Futuristic (think anime, infinity style, could be used as a ship interior)
Hellscape (cracked and textured with demonic symbols across the ground)
Fantasy Urban (think village with cobblestones)

They are all relatively flat compared to the Realms boards (obviously easier to store and you don't get stuck with the same hills).
They also come painted! Now this won't be massively detailed (think base coat/wash), but it does mean you can use them straight away!
If the KS does well they may release other themes. Various perks will also be available which include scatter terrain in the themes of some of the boards.
Supposedly they are also compatible with the Realms boards, whatever that means, hopefully that means same height and uses similar clips, we will have to see.

I am planning on going in on a couple of sets of the 10mm urban to make an epic city out of (one clean, one damaged) and possibly some relatively plain ones (something like grassland/rural or if not the Hellscape and I will fill over the detail) so I can do a mixed urban/rural board.

If anyone else is interested, go and check out their FB page as they have pictures of the boards on there.

Mmm I do like the epic 10mm... Once I actually locate my epic army. It's in a box somewhere...

Only 6 days to go on the kickstarter.
All the 10mm DZC boards have been unlocked.
Extra pledge options for pix and mix board selections.
They have even done some redesign work on some of the other themes based on backer feedback.
If you haven't got in on this, you only have a few days left!
