We also have two new designs to offer last minute, these are planet pieces that would work perfect in many different scenarios for space miniatures games. These pieces are resin cast and can be finished in many different ways. The Ice Planet could just as easily be a Volcanic Lava Planet!

Update: New Stretch Goal & Space Station Defense Tower!

Thank you to everyone, we have reached the $10k mark and cleared the stretch goal!  This means, pledge levels The Grand Moff, The Sith Lord & The Emperor will receive an extra Space Station Defense Turret for free.  This in addition to the Exhaust Port tile from the $5k stretch goal!

We have finalized the design for the new Space Station Defense Tower!  This product can be ordered as a stand-alone complete kit (3 piece kit) or as an upgrade expansion (1 piece).  The upgrade piece is the base part of the Tower, which can be swapped out with the base part of the Turret to upgrade it to a Tower!  The complete Tower add-on is $40 and the Tower Upgrade only is $30.

New Stretch Goal!  We only have a few days left, but we would like to offer a new stretch goal at $15k for the pledge levels: The Grand Moff, The Sith Lord & The Emperor we will offer a free Tower Upgrade piece!

We have received a number of requests to pledge multiple levels - and yes we will honor this!  Simply pledge the highest level you want, and add extra funds to cover the lower pledge levels you would like in addition.  EACH pledge level will include all the goodies that come with it!  For Example: if you would like to get both the The Emperor level and The Sith level - pledge for the Emperor level and add $200 extra to cover the Sith level.  This will get you everything from each pledge level, plus 2 exhaust ports and 2 turrets for free! (one for each pledge level for each stretch goal).

<End Update> ===============================

Update: Exhaust Port Unveiled!

We are still working hard on getting everything ready for production, and finishing up the last few add-on designs!  Here are some final images for the Space Station Exhaust Port tile.  This piece is included to pledge levels The Grand Moff, The Sith Lord & The Emperor for free as part of our $5k stretch goal!   For those who want extras or in addition to lower pledge levels, the piece is available as an add-on purchase for $9.00 (with US shipping).

We are very close to the final details for the Space Station Defense Tower - our next update will include final images of this impressive laser turret!

UPDATES  

First, we wanted to give all of our backers a special Thank You! We have been working very hard on preparing production for this projects as well as adding more goodies for everyone! Everything is moving along very well, and we are very happy to see the level of response from our fans. We've also sent some samples to our distributor to show at the GAMA trade show in Las Vegas, and they have reported the response was phenomenal!

STRETCH GOALS

We would like to announce our first two stretch goals!

The first, will be for the objective marker exhaust port piece everyone has been asking for! We are currently designing this piece, and should have sketches soon, followed by prototype photos. This piece will fit inside the trench run, and will be about 4"x4". This piece will be available as a free bonus to the pledge levels: The Grand Moff, The Sith Lord & The Emperor. We will award this bonus at the $5k mark - we are currently well past!  

The second stretch goal will be available at the $10k mark, and at this level we will include a free Turret piece to the pledge levels: The Grand Moff, The Sith Lord & The Emperor (in addition to the $5k stretch goal exhaust port piece). Please help us get there!

Space Station Terrain - That's No Moon

------------------------------------PROJECT-------------------------------------------

We've created basic concepts for designs on a whole new range of terrain based on the popular space games like X-Wing and Attack-Wing.   We think that many gamers will love these for their space battles at home or at their FLGS.  We are using Kickstarter to help gauge the demand to make such a huge project and if the campaign is successful, we will be able to make sure the products will also be available in stores and online at a reasonable price. 

Attack on the Space Station!

 We've designed a base set of Space Station terrain pieces to setup on a standard size gaming table.  Each piece is a highly detailed resin cast for very high durability and strength!  Final finishing to the terrain may be required, including minor trim and paint.  Resin casts will be gray in color, but may vary in shade.  Ships/minis used are for reference only and not included in any pledge level.
