About this project
BATTLE BLOKX, war-gaming terrain for the rest of us.
We started with an idea: wouldn't be great if you could buy a big gaming fortress for like $50? From there we began to research and develop what would become BATTLE BLOKX, a new low cost and fun type of gaming structure.
What are BATTLE BLOKX?
BATTLE BLOKX are vacuum formed thermo-molded plastic "building blocks" designed to resemble a concrete prefabricated fortress, or other battlefield fortification for modern era or Sci-fi fantasy table top miniature games in the 28mm, 1/48, or 30mm scale range.
Each BLOK is based around the idea that all vacuum formed plastic structures are hollow and can be designed around a stack-able format. Our BASIK BLOK is 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches and approx. 1/2 inch tall, and is the basis for all vertical structures build-able with BATTLE BLOKX. Each BASIK BLOK also features a "ladder" detail, so your miniature warriors have a way to scale your structures.
From the BASIK BLOKX we have developed a number of detail pieces that can be combined together to create interesting structures both large and small.
Like our CORNER BLOK...
Or our STRAIGHT WALL BLOK...
With the variety of BLOKX included in our 20 piece set "The Watchtower" you can build structures like this...
The BATTLE BLOK Advantage
BATTLE BLOKX have several advantages aside from price: they are more durable then card-stock or cardboard models of a similar price and scale, they are light weight making them ideal for taking to gaming tournaments or conventions, they assemble quickly and take down just as fast, and finally they are supplied unpainted so you can use them as a "blank canvas" for your own creative ideas.
Down To Business
We're bringing this project to Kickstarter because we don't just want to be another faceless company, we want to inspire creativity, and be inspired by the gaming community around us. To further those goals we are planing on manufacturing all BATTLE BLOKS in house and right here in Huntington, West Virginia, USA. That's why we're asking for what may seem like a large amount of support, we will be buying all the equipment to produce the BLOKX and we will then distribute them ourselves passing all of the money we save on to our customers.
At launch we will have full scale vacuum formed prototypes, and we will be well into the process for mold production, so that when we reach our goal we can begin full production as soon as the equipment is installed.
