About

This is the initial release for our Asian themed terrain.  We are releasing a mix of traditional and modern/near future terrain to help make your battles more epic and your tables even more life like.  

Why Kickstarter?

We are looking at it as a pre-order of sorts.  Each item has been discounted more than our typical holiday sale.  Kickstarter helps us get to a lot of people faster than normal advertising and helps expand our reach. Releasing the products via Kickstarter is a nice kick off for a product line and it worked well for the Boom Town and Victorian lines. 

What's in it for you?

We have seen a lot of interest in the items from our Western and Superhero lines and want to be able to crank out more pieces to excite the community.  This requires more equipment and that costs money.  In the long run, this will mean better merchandise for our customers that even more affordable.  

We have created a few bundles of items from the two styles.  The larger bundles will have freebies to go with the items in the bundle at the various unlock levels.  We will also have a few special Kickstarter only versions of some the items.  More on that in the "Stretch Goal" section.

Pledging 

Kickstarter only allows you to pledge for one level.  Pick the pledge level with the release wave that you want.  The pledge goal is for the minimum.  You can add more money to that for the other items you may want.  The price of our items are below.  Use that to determine what you want to add.

At the end, you will receive a credit amount for the total of your pledge to select your products.

Post-Kickstarter Add-ons

If we learned one thing from our first Kickstarter, it was to have a pledge manager and one that allows add-ons.  So, we will be using a pledge manager that allows add-ons after the Kickstarter ends.  This means that even at the $1 level you will be able to purchase items in additional to what comes with the pledged level.  Want additional walls but found out after it's over?  We got you covered.

Risks and challenges

Pretty minor. We have 1 successful Kickstarter already and a lot more experience with the process of rapidly producing and getting products shipped. Being supper successful will impact production times but we did ship everything ahead of schedule last time around.

Other Issues:

A few come to mind:

Postal Fees - We charged way too little for overseas/international last time. It ate up way too much of our net. We plan to address this by using BackerKit and having our international backers pay for shipping based on the actual cost of their order.

Not having fully finished products (i.e. working with prototypes) - We were doing a lot of the design work as we were running the Kickstarter. As you can see, everything is done. No issue with that here but things could happen

Mechanical Failure - Can happen (and has). Todd is pretty good with fixing it and if we meet our minimum we get the second laser. Additionally, we have access to several other lasers but they require scheduling and other hoops.

Missing deadlines - That can happen. We have our process down but things happen. We give a pretty close estimate based on time for each building.

Ordering issues - We had a few issues with the Kickstarter questionnaire system and were able to get these resolved. A pledge manager is being used from the start to help with this and shipping.
