Fantasy Wargames Terrain from Battle Systems™

£310,670

Currently Funding - Nothing - you funded everything we had to give, for now... See you in the pledge manager! Thank You!!!

We are Battle Systems and we’ve been making tabletop gaming terrain for over seven years. We have successful urban and sci-fi ranges on sale and even our own tabletop game, but now we want to revisit the world of fantasy!

This terrain is suitable for all 28-35mm fantasy and historical games. It is easy to assemble and there is no painting required! It can even be flat packed back into the box for easy storage between games. It is made of pre-printed super-high-density cardstock and is incredibly strong and durable. 

The Fantasy Gaming Table pledge will get you all the terrain you need for a complete gaming table for just £75. You can tightly pack the terrain into a 3' x 3' / 90cm x 90cm skirmish board, or spread it out over a 6' x 4' / 180cm x 120cm battlefield for wargaming.

This terrain is suitable for many popular miniatures games and RPGs including Kings of War, Vanguard, A Song of Ice and Fire, D&D, Frostgrave, Mordheim, Warlords of Erehwon, Rangers of Shadow Deep, Age of Sigmar and more.

For more information on our terrain check out the Battle Systems website.

For further examples of the modularity and construction techniques check out our existing ranges on the Tutorials page of our website.

Battle Systems terrain is modular so you’re not limited to just what you can see in the pictures. The wall sections can be assembled in any combination using our plastic clips, so if you want to build your ruins into a different shape, or add an extra floor to a house, go ahead!

Modular components simply clip together to make your buildings!
Modular components simply clip together to make your buildings!

The components are all fully detailed on both sides. Skirmish gamers and RPG players will appreciate that the buildings therefore have fully detailed interiors. All roofs and upper floors are designed to lift straight off so you can access the insides for gaming. When you’re done with your bar fight you can head back outside and the roof will sit neatly back onto the building.

For those of you familiar with our previous terrain, there are a few innovations with this new range that make a big difference.

Primarily, the curves that we’ve incorporated into the roofs of the houses and the rough edges on the ruins give the terrain a much more natural look. We’ve also done a lot of work on the textures to create a 3D look on the wooden detailing, brickwork and roof tiles. These additions instantly make the table more immersive and most people would never believe that it’s made of cardboard!

As well as refining the shapes and the artwork we’ve worked with the factory to refine the size and accuracy of the cuts and fittings – this means more detailed pieces and neat little additions like working hinges on the doors, windows and trapdoors!

Just clip together your buildings - even the doors and windows open!

We are committed to launching this range into stores and building relationships for long term mutual success.

The Retailer Pledge does not contain specific products – it is a deposit towards your first order of this new range. This order will be in line with our standard trade discounts and terms – for full information, or if you have any questions, please email stewart@battlesystems.co.uk.

The order will be taken in full shortly before the rewards are shipped. It will include stretch goals and will be dispatched with the other Kickstarter orders.

The pledge also includes a complete 6'x4' Gaming Board (including mats) for free to display and play on in your store. This will include a mix of Village and Battlefield terrain, as well as promotional materials to support the release.

This pledge is for verified retailers only in line with our terms. Any retailer pledges that do not meet these criteria will be cancelled and refunded after the campaign.

Shipping is not included in the pledge pricing and will be charged separately after the Kickstarter campaign. Once we know how many pledges we have to fulfil we can use this information to negotiate the best possible shipping prices with our fulfilment partners.

The majority of orders will be shipped from the UK.

  • If the outcome of the Brexit process results in increased import costs to the rest of the EU, we will use a fulfilment partner within the EU to dispatch European orders.
  • The customs threshold for importing into the USA is $800, and therefore almost all pledges will be delivered to the US without any duties or taxes. Depending on our total order volumes we may decide to use a US fulfilment partner but we cannot guarantee it at this stage.
  • Orders to all other countries will be shipped from the UK. Any additional costs of shipping to your country such as import duties, handling fees, taxes or anything else are the responsibility of the backer and cannot be covered by us.

The following prices are estimates based on shipping a single pledge to these locations via courier. The final cost of shipping will vary depending on your exact location, the number of sets bought, the number of unlocked stretch goals and any optional add-ons you choose.

UK Mainland - £6-8

UK - Northern Ireland, Highlands, Islands etc - £8-12

Western Europe - £10-16

Eastern Europe / Scandinavia - £10-25

USA - £12-17

Canada - £20-27

Australia - £30-38

Rest of the World - £35-55

Note that some locations including islands and remote areas will have higher costs than those listed above. The exact costs for these locations and all others not currently listed will be stated in the pledge manager once we have finalised the prices with our fulfilment centre.

Please note we are unable to ship to Russia and we cannot ship to PO Boxes. If shipping is not paid after the campaign we will be unable to ship your rewards.

Stretch goals will allow us to fund new tooling and add more value to your pledge as the total rises. The added rewards will be revealed and unlocked when we hit certain funding levels during the campaign. 

Most stretch goal rewards will be included with your pledge for FREE, whereas some may unlock new add-ons. See the images below for details.

You will get one set of stretch goals for each pledge that you select, so multiple pledges = multiple stretch goals.

Risks and challenges

This is our sixth Kickstarter, with all others fulfilled as expected. We are therefore used to the challenges inherent in the mass production of products and the fulfilment of large numbers of orders as well as managing multiple suppliers.

We know how much it will cost, how long it will take to produce and how to handle the delivery of the pledges. We just need your support to get this new range into print. We are gamers and we love what we do so we want you to receive what we have envisioned.

The terrain pieces are designed and laid out, and the next stage is getting them tooled and produced, with many samples stages along the way to ensure quality. We predict that we will begin shipping in early 2020. However, the exact timing is impossible to predict and there is always the potential for delay with products produced in China, especially if any components do not meet our high quality standards during production. We will of course keep our backers up to date as best we can once the project closes.

By backing this campaign you acknowledge that the final product may vary slightly from the prototypes shown in the images, due to tooling tolerances or artwork improvements during production. We will notify backers of any major changes should they occur.

We are aiming to deliver this Kickstarter in full in advance of the retail release date. However, production or shipping delays may result in the Kickstarter shipping around the same time at the retail release and we cannot guarantee that backers will get their rewards first. We hope that the discounted prices and free stretch goals will make up for any delay. If these terms are not acceptable please wait and purchase the products at retail in 2020.
