Table Full Of Awesome Gaming Terrain and Aides!
We bring plastic/resin quality terrain to the gaming world at a value anyone can afford! Own your own Kingdom! 28mm Miniature Scale.
(SECTION UPDATED WITH PICTURES,INFO and NEWS!)
Welcome to our project-
Table full of awesome began, as many great things do, as an abstract idea. Our gaming group was lucky enough to consist of a diverse background of members, with many areas of expertise. One night while talking about playing a game of Warmahordes, we decided we should build some houses. The humble beginnings of TFoA were based, as with so many other hobbyists and modellers, in the realm of Foamboard, glue an exacto knives.
It didn't stay that way for long. Drawing on our Chief Designers deep and lengthy experience in the gaming world, we learned the craft secrets of scratch building terrain. Our designs were able to move faster and develop quicker as our master painter took the reigns on the artistic side of things. Our engineer looked at it all and provided a hard nose, exacting eye. Collaboration between these three founders and the rest of the group resulted in our own terrain mill. We tooled designs, scratch built, sculpted and assembled our own masters. And over time our Terrain's quality grew, and we started dipping our toes in the water of other area's of gaming. Hobby supplies, gaming mats and tables, and how we could do something with the knowledge we amassed.
And on the day our first resin/plastic piece was poured, Table Full of Awesome was born.
Now we can, and do reliably create quality terrain and gaming aides, hobby supplies and much more! We offer a line of (currently)
-31 Different Buildings, 7 Different colors of "Green" reclaimed environmentally responsible flocking, Custom Canvas Game Mats, Several different sizes and shapes of Trees, bushes, and hedgerows, Terrain accessory bundles, Upgrades for buildings, roads and custom gaming tables even static grass by the inch! I think you'd agree that it's a pretty impressive line of product! We hope to be your one stop Terrain and Hobby supply shop. Now I'll tell you a little bit about what makes us different-
The quality and value of variety!
Most gaming/terrain companies find one material they like and work exclusively with that material. Well, that is a fine approach, but we embrace the idea that specific pieces might be just as good, or even better when created with a diversity of materials. For example, Castle walls, a staple of every fantasy adventure! Well when using Resin/Plastic, these items can have a prohibitively high cost to manufacture without passing them along at a significant markup to you, the public at large. Now however, if we take our expertise in dealing with our blend of Gypsum concrete (Fixture and statue level quality) You get a rugged piece, that being stone is made of stone, it' strong, it's genuine to the piece and most of all it comes in at a fraction of the cost! We embrace the idea of finding the best, strongest, and most value laden materials for our products for you!
You pay for what you want to pay for!
We keep almost every aspect of our business in house, from the graphic design of the website and logo's to the actual pouring and production of our pieces. Our packaging isn't what you pay for. When Gaming companies engage Graphic Design firms to create the flashy boxes and packing their pieces come in, you can believe that the cost of that service effects the price you are paying. Our packaging and material exist to get you the product you want! A such we keep it slim, tight and basic. No passing that cost on to the consumer!
We're already working small time!
We have already had some success locally, and those who have bought our products have been amazingly pleased with them! We've sold to private hobbyists and maintain a relationship with a couple of small gaming stores. What we need your help for is to turn this into a true business that can supply everyone with these awesome products! In order to get these products out there we need to hire staff and fabricate more molds than we have now. The material and man power costs, but the good news is we have our process down for mastering the models and pouring the pieces. We even have staff lined up, just waiting for this Kickstarter to succeed!
What this success means to us, and our promise to you!
If this Kickstarter campaign succeeds we will be able to provide everyone with everything they could every want from our current line! Hiring a staff allows our Chief Designer to spend his time working on expanding our line regularly and swiftly. We have an aggressive timeline that has us adding a new 8-10 Products and buildings to our line every 90 days for the first year of business! We also have plans, drafts, and schematics that will evolve into entirely new product lines where (teaser ahead) This sky, is literally, the limit! With your help we can continually provide everyone with new and exciting ways to expand their world and collections and continue to do it at our unbeatable TFoA prices! Those who support us now, will not be forgotten!
Adaptability and customization is king!
We think at TFOA, that a blank canvas is a wonderful thing. Being able to pour your idea out and make something you own, well there just isn't anything esle quite like it! That's why, when we design our Building and terrain we do some with concept of customization and adaptability in the forefront of the design process.
We sculpt VERY view of our designs with fixed doors/windows and embellishments. We instead strive to create a platform of individuality by supplying you with packs and sprue's of Doors, Windows, Signs, embellishments, etc letting you decide where your house faces, is it a house or a warehouse? Is it two story? One story? Does it have a balcony, a patio? We give you all the tools you need and the pieces you need to turn each of your pieces into your very own masterpiece!

Pictures of the first half of our offerings!
Having returned from our first gaming Expo. TABLE expo in Grapevine Texas, we got a lot of good feedback and encouragement as well as making a few sales! People really liked the products on hand, and we're going to see about getting some impressions on film for you guys to see!
So to answer some questions we've been asked-
The scale of our product is Heroic 28mm. The same scale used in most mass market Mini wargames, RPG miniatures and RPG monsters. Some of it is in what we're calling "Epic" 28mm size, meaning that some of these buildings are going to be HUGE five to six stories tall.
Our Materials we use for the buildings area Plastic, or Plastic/Resin formula depending on the building. This makes them tough and rugged, our stuff is meant to be used and played with. So It needed to be tough. The exact a mount of toughness will get shown off on the new Video posting Monday.
I've taken over the Site/Video guys job until he recovers from his accident, and I will be uploading a SLEW of new pictures showcasing each building very, very soon. A matter of one or two days! We have committed to frequent updates and answers to questions so please don't hesitate to ask!
Here are some of the new pics just so hopefully get your feet wet-
Risks and challenges
Here is one of best parts. Despite the massive offering we are striving to give everyone, the risks are as minimal as they can get without being non-existent. Our Materials distributor is local, for molds and product material. The founding members of TFoA all have spent the time learning our process of manufacturing from the ground up. As each piece will be hand made, quality control is handled by someone whose name is on the business. There isn't a much better guarantee of quality than that. The risks are minimal, and anything that might cause a delay would be addressed on our facebook, our web page or the campaign page here. We want to keep everyone of you, our backers, in the loop! We will provide multiple means and avenues of contact to do so!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
