What Are Tablescapes Dungeons?

Tablescapes Dungeons are modular, hand-sculpted dungeon tiles with an integral 1x1" grid system designed for gamers. With your help we will produce them in a highly durable, non-toxic grey PVC specially formulated to capture the incredible detail of our sculpts. The sets will be sold un-painted.


Funding at $190,000 - Stacker Set!

The Stacker Set levels up your dungeon - literally - allowing you to create multi-level dungeons with ease. The Stackers come as large as 6x6" and as small as 2x2" for easy, modular building as you work your way up.

Below is one sample build - the possibilities are endless! 

 The walls and textures wash out a little in the bright lights of the studio - but we've got great detail throughout the entire dungeon! Just check out the texturing on the tops of the walls!

 Our product comes in 1" squares, and lines up well with the most popular manufacturers of dungeon tiles on the market. Our walls are set up differently, to come in both 1" and 2" heights, and to not take up any floor space of on the main tiles, as shown below.

 How do I use the Pledge Manager?

 

 

 

  

            

Why use Kickstarter?

With the help of our Kickstarter community we were able to bring the Tablescapes Tiles to market -- a line of themed 12x12" modular, styrene boards that can be configured to create a wargaming table. That was just the beginning though, and plans for the Tablescapes range carry it into new territory -- PVC.

This will be the first campaign of Tablescapes Dungeons, and a proof-of-concept for future expansions. We have secured help from Reaper Miniatures, who have had great success working with PVC, to handle logistics, and fulfillment, but we still need help to pay for the production.

What's in it for you?

With your help we'll bring an incredible new line of themed dungeon tiles to market. Of course we also have stretch goals that will give you an incredible return on your pledge, and you'll be the first to get your hands on this hot product.

 

We are excited to announce that we will now be shipping all EU pledges from our UK hub. At this time the Pledge Manager will estimate your shipping charge with actual shipping charges being determined before you finalize your pledge for shipment. Should the final charge exceed the estimated amount, you will be given the opportunity to cancel your pledge and receive a full refund.

Shipment to backers inside the UK will be charged the required VAT. Backers in other EU countries (outside the UK) are responsible for paying any additional local charges and their appropriate VAT(if any).

In addition, we will also be shipping all Oceania-based pledges from our Australian hub. At this time the Pledge Manager will estimate your shipping charge with actual shipping charges being determined before you finalize your pledge for shipment. Should the final charge exceed the estimated amount, you will be given the opportunity to cancel your pledge and receive a full refund.

Backers in Oceania-based countries will be responsible for paying any additional local charges and their appropriate VAT (if any).

Risks and challenges

For this project, Secret Weapon is working with Reaper Miniatures for logistical support, and fulfillment. Reaper has successfully delivered on three successful Kickstarter campaigns involving PVC figures and terrain, and so we'll give you their statement on Risks & Challenges:

For a project like ours, the risks and challenges fall into three categories:
1) Overall Non-completion
2) Delays in meeting our estimated delivery dates
3) We do not produce a specific model or change a specific model.

Concerning the risk of Overall Non-completion: we've already completed three massive Kickstarters and are fully aware of the pitfalls. Two things that could cause the non-completion of this Kickstarter are either the loss of our inbound shipments (due to an act of God, pirates or war), or a massive disaster (fire, flood) that levels our facility. Either of those events might be disastrous, however we carry full insurance on our facility and insure every shipment, no matter the size, against loss and damage.

Obviously either of the above tragic events would create delays in meeting our estimated delivery dates, and that brings us to the second category: delays. We learned a lot during our three Kickstarters. However, delays are simply part of the cycle of business and it is our wisdom, training, and experience that would help us mitigate and work through any delay. Some delays are easy to solve, such as replacing a printer that is creating barcodes that a particular USPS hub is having a problem reading. Other delays are out of our hands, such as the 2014-2015 longshoreman west coast work slow down that delayed all of our overseas containers. We have even intentionally created delays when we chose to change models already in production to make them better.

Lastly there is the risk we will not produce a specific model shown. This will only occur if there is not enough interest in a specific model measured by the number of backers that actually pledge for to buy it verses the cost to produce it. This event did not occur in any of our previous Kickstarters, but is nonetheless still a risk. In the event this situation develops we will issue a refund or credit depending on your desire for the buy in pledge amount of the model.

We reserve the right to modify pieces shown to meet production requirements.

In summary we have the knowledge, wisdom and know how to prevent, solve, and work through just about any problem that we will face and will do everything possible to make this an exciting and enjoyable event.
