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.

    “The Customizer”
    Design your own custom BATTLE BLOK. Not only will you receive the complete $185 set, you will be able to create your own custom BLOK. The custom BLOK will be designed by you, and we will work with you to create the molds and masters. Then once it’s complete we will send you 20 copies of your design. Your design will also go on sale on our future online store with a designed by credit in your name.
    Why this reward is so expensive: $185 covers your initial set of BATTLE BLOKX, $300 goes to creating and casting the masters, then molding the copies of the custom BLOKX you designed, then $15 will go to shipping you your 20 copies.
    There are of course limitations to what can be formed through the BATTLE BLOKX molding process, and you need to keep those in mind when thinking about becoming a backer at this level. BLOKX cannot have any overhangs, deep undercuts, or thick texture, the BLOK must be able to mold and unmold without any vertical restriction. Finally your design will have to fit within a 3.5 inch x 3.5 inch x 2 inch box.
    Remember this is not a profit sharing offer or any other kind of future dividends offer, aside from your BLOKX all you will receive is a designer credit, on our future web store.

    Shipping to the 48 Continental US included, all others please add $20, your initial set of BLOKX will ship with the other backer rewards, but your custom BLOKX won't ship till after you design them, and we make them of course.
