About this project
You can check out this video to see how it all works:
Now we are expanding our line of terrain by adding “L” and “T” floor plans, 3 new advanced styles, bridges, walls, and our epic line of terrain which are larger size buildings that match and add to our existing styles. We are also offering the option to get any of our puzzle piece terrain without the puzzle piece backing, for those of you want something a little simpler.
Although the first Kickstarter went well and we were able to get our laser and get started, we are very much still in the growth stage of our company and need your help! There are some additional tools that are needed, the large cost of material purchase also that has to be covered, as well as the web store / site. It’s not a lot of money that is needed, hence the small funding goal; however, we can't do it without you!
Because we already have the laser and all the designs are finished, we can start production right after the money clears Kickstarter and we can order the materials. We will be producing rewards based on the order of the pledges. So if you're the first pledge, your order gets done first. So the sooner you pledge, the sooner you get your reward. It’s just that simple.

Currently we have two styles of L1 buildings available regular and advanced. The regular styles are the same ones that were available on the first Kickstarter; Brick, Gothic, Steampunk, Sci Fi, Stone and Tudor. They are back on this Kickstarter because we are offering the different floor plans ('L' and 'T') as well as the ability to get them without the puzzle piece backing.
The advanced style of buildings are brand new, and feature additional parts made from grayboard to add more texture to each piece. They are the: Tudor 2, Steampunk 2, and Wooden.
Examples of all the styles of buildings can be seen by clicking on the links below each of their individual sections.

A Level 2 is a two story, 28mm building that comes in: 6 Styles Tudor, Sci Fi, Steampunk, Stone, Gothic, and Brick / Regular or Ruined / With or Without Puzzle Piece Backing.
A L2 with the puzzle piece backing can be broken down into two Level 1 buildings. This is accomplished by using the pieces that make up the L2 building along with extra gables (the triangle piece that holds up the roof), floors, and roofs.

Our Epic Buildings are large size buildings in 28mm that are designed to be the centerpiece of a table. We have a Steampunk Warehouse, a Sci Fi Recon Outpost, and a Gothic Cathedral, that are available in Regular or Ruined / With or Without Puzzle Piece Backing.

Our wall sets contain 9 walls that have heights of ¾ inch, 1 ½ inch, 3 inches and are 4, 6 and 8 inches long. They come in 3 styles, Block, Steampunk, and Sci Fi / Regular or Ruined.
Because of the different sizes and styles these wall are suitable for all but the smallest of scales.

As you have probably noticed from the pictures, there are no puzzle pieces on the bridges. However, in typical Impudent Mortal style, you get more than just a static one use piece of terrain. All of the bridges are modular and come with different length road beds so you have the option of changing the length of your bridge for each game!

** IMPORTANT PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY **
As you have already probably noticed, there are a LOT of options to this Kickstarter, and there is no way we could possibly predict every possible combination that you might come up with. So now the question becomes how to pledge for what you want, and I've made is as simple as I can. If you want just 1 of something then just click that pledge level. If you want 2 or more, or several different things, just add the pledges amounts together, click the CUSTOM pledge level, and then enter that amount.
For example, let's say you want 1 Steampunk Bridge, 4 L1 Advanced 'L' Floorplan, and a set of walls. Just add the $40, $90, and $15 for $145 and enter that amount under the Custom pledge level.
But how will we know what you want?
After the Kickstarter has funded and is over, we will send you a survey where you will be able to tell us what you along with any custom requests.
Each backer can only have ONE Early Bird Special while they last. However if you want an Early Bird Special and additional regular pledges, just click the Early Bird Special Pledge level and then add the additional amount of the pledges just like you would for a custom pledge.
For our US backers shipping is included in the amount of the pledge. For our international backers, we've created a PDF here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1jR4FYMxi3dcHdUNk5pMUFHMHM/edit?usp=sharing that breaks down the shipping costs by region so we can be as accurate as possible.
The US Postal Service had a pretty hefty rate hike at the beginning of the year for international shipping. So, if you have friends who also want to get in on this project I don't have a problem putting everyone under 1 backer (ie sending all the rewards to a single address) so you can save on the shipping. Just send us a message and we'll work it out.
Steampunk Crane Available NOW!
Stone Bridge Available NOW!
For each crane just add $30 to your existing pledge.
For each bridge just add $25 to your existing pledge.
SPECIAL DEAL FOR INTERNATIONAL BACKERS: NO ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COSTS!
If you are an international backer and you have pledge for anything else then no additional shipping.
If all you want is the crane or bridge just use the custom pledge level and pledge the dollar amount for what you want, well sort out the details on the survey.
If your an international backer and you just want the crane or the bridge then please add the appropriateamount. CANADA - $10 / UK EUROPE ASIA AUSTRALIA $15

The next thing for Impudent Mortal is the launch of the web site. Aside from being able to order any individual parts that you want, I'm also going to have a custom build section. There you will be able to design a building from the ground up. Pick the size, shape, and style of the building, windows, doors, roof design and style, so in short you get to be the designer!
Our YouTube channel has several videos that you'll find helpful. Our FAQ, Tips and Tricks Video covers information about working with MDF, including which glues to use and how to paint it. We also have videos that show you how to construct the puzzle piece terrain. You can see them all here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6ZRkPAHkV5kT49BS6R_4lw/videos
Here's an unsolitied review that one my backers from our first project wote: http://sykowargamer.blogspot.com/2013/04/product-review-impudent-mortal-laser.html
Ohhh.... I just received (6/23) another review from a backer from the first project, check it out!
Also if you have any questions please feel free to ask!
Risks and challenges
The risks to this project are minimum. We have the equipment we need and multiple people trained in their use. All of the designs have already been developed and perfected and we have ironed out the kinks with our experience from our first Kickstarter.
The only real challenge is if the project goes big, and in which case we will order the necessary lasers to handle the increased demand.
In order to keep you informed we put out weekly updates so if there are any problems you will be aware of them, and how we are addressing them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
