About

The Sci-Fi Corridors line of terrain kits are designed to be used with 28mm scale figures in table top wargaming, RPG games and some board games.  Most kits include the laser cut plywood parts needed to make at least 2 corridor or room sections and the rare earth magnets used to join the completed sections.  Some kits also contain additional accessory parts such as ladders, markers or doors.  A few specialty kits contain only accessory pieces such as extra doors or markers. Kits come unpainted and require some assembly.

A note on scale: The Sci-Fi corridor sections are described in terms of tiles.  One 'tile' is 1.5"x1.5" so the 1x3 corridor in kits A and B is 1 tile wide an 3 tiles long.  The size of the floor space in that section is 1.5" wide and 4.5" long.  The border of under-decking and sidewalls adds .5" to each side so the overall size of the 1x3 corridor is 4.5" long and 2.5" wide.

Kits? Why Kits?  You will notice that we are bundling a few sections into what we are calling a kit.  We are doing this because it allows us to cram the largest number of pieces into a single sheet of plywood and still get complete sections on the sheet and in turn, keep your cost lower.  It also keeps us from having to manage an inventory of all the individual sections.  Eventually we may switch to a section based inventory, but for this project we thought this method would be the most efficient.

Your Pledge: The funding raised from your pledges will help to recoup the cost of the laser cutter and cover the cost of materials and shipping.   Shipping to the US is included in all pledge amounts.  An additional fee will be required for international shipping of $30 to Canada and $55 to anywhere else.  You will need to manually increase your pledge by the appropriate amount for international shipping.

Cancellation of Stretch Requirement for Additional Kits

Well, we only have a few days left and still have a ways to go to meet our goal, let alone any of the stretch goals.  Since we've already put all the work into the designing the wide corridor kits and the wall extension parts we've decided to make those available to you in the "You Pick 'Em" pledge levels and as à la carte add-ons.  So, if you were waiting for those items jump in now.  Details one each set of add-ons is below.

Now for the goodies!!

Wall Extension 

Wall extension kits will contain all the additional wall sections and support braces to make the walls on a standard or wide corridor kit twice as tall as they were originally. 

Here is a picture of the wall extensions installed on a 1-wide 3-way intersection.

Ordering À La Carte

Backers who pledge the "I'll have À La Carte" or higher levels have the opportunity to order kits à la carte.  The process for ordering à la carte is to increase your pledge by $15 for each kit or $30 for each double kit (only Kit M at the moment) you want to order.  At the end of the campaign, you'll use the survey to tell us which additional kits you want.

Extras! Bonus Freebies!! 

We have been able to squeeze some extras onto some of the cut sheets for the kits.  These are included as a bonus with the kits they are cut with.  We are still working on the final cut sheets and other extras so we'll let you know what kits the extras are in once we get everything finalized.  You will get the extras if you request the kit they're included with as a reward through one of the standard Level pledges, a "You Pick 'Em Level" pledge, or à la carte.

The first extra we have created is the DLD Galactic Freight shipping crates.  The crates are about 1"x1"x1.5" with tabs that lock the crates together when stacked.  Right now a standard Level 1 set will get 4 crates, Level 2 - 8, and Level 3 - 15.

Due to a huge amount of requests after showcasing our set at a couple of local game shops, we have decided to make sets of 3 DLD Galactic Freight shipping crates available at a $10 pledge level.  This pledge level does not allow you to add à la carte kits, but you can add the crates to any à la carte or higher pledge level for $10 per 3 crates.

Assembly Videos

We have put together a few videos of the assembly of a couple of pieces and the magnet installation. These were originally uploaded as updates but we've moved them here to put them in the correct order make them easier to find.  The first one is about installing the magnets.

The second video is how to assemble a simple 1 tile corridor section.

The third video shows the assembly of the most complicated sub component in our kits, a W wall section.

The last video shows the use of that wall section in the assembly of a 3x3 room with 2 exits in adjacent walls.

STRETCH GOALS

  • ULF Marker color choices - If we get pledges for at least 10 sets of ULF markers (Kit M) as part of Level 3, you pick 'em, or à la carte pledges, backers ordering Kit M will have their choice of green, blue, or red  acrylic uppers. If you are planning on getting Kit M via you pick 'em or à la carte pledges let us know so we can count your order toward this goal.LOCKED
Here's what the blue and green uppers look like.  If we hit our goal and this stretch early enough to order the acrylic we'll add a pic of some red examples.

  • The Darkness From Whence It Came - If we sell out of the Level 3 Early Bird Pledges a black velvet bag will be included with every Kit M. - LOCKED
  • $10,000 Stretch Goal - Free Flame Markers - If we reach the $10,000 mark, everyone pledging level 1 or above will receive flame markers, 2 markers/set.  Level 1 pledges will receive 1 set, Level 2 - 2 Sets, Level 3 - 3 sets. - LOCKED

Risks and challenges

Before launching this project we have already proto-typed the entire set of kits. The proto-typing gave us a pretty good idea how long it will take to produce the rewards. That said, the most significant challenge would be if we get more pledges for rewards than we can produce by the estimated delivery date. In that case we will do our best to deliver everyone their rewards as quickly as possible and in the order the pledges were received.
