About

The Campaign

The purpose of the campaign is to fund the purchase of a laser cutter and other supplies to begin mass production of designs I have worked on for miniature tabletop gaming terrain.

The Content

Buildings will be supplied ready to assemble and have been designed to either allow play ability right out of the box or to create detail terrain with simple add-ons.

Pledge Levels

Shipping is included with all pledges to any United States address. At this time the project is not being offered to overseas pledges, this may change if a shipping company/format can be sourced.

*** UPDATE ***

Shipping option has been opened up to international shipping now.

Rewards will be shipped in order of backer number and my personal goal is to begin shipping as products are produced and show fulfillment status on a weekly basis.  The October time frame for rewards has been set to allow for any potential delays during production.

Add-Ons

  • To keep the project from growing out of control and prevent the cost of the project from delaying production, I have decided to not allow additional add-ons for this Kickstarter. Add-ons will need to be purchased after all Kickstarter pledges have been fulfilled and will be done on a storefront web-page that will be created once the pledges have been 95% completed.

Stretch Goals

  • I will only be listing two stretch goals for this project. While the initial project has a low start point the higher stretch goal limits are to reward everyone who helps this project become a reality. Additional laser cutters and equipment will be purchased to complete production.
  • $50,000 – Each backer receives a dockside “Warehouse” included with pledge.
  • $100,000 – Each Backer receives a “Governor’s Mansion” included with pledge.

Why Kickstarter and why me?

As many of you have seen Kickstarter is a great way to get in on the ground floor of projects and help people get started. While I will be funding the project myself Kickstarter allows me the opportunity to scale my production in a manner, I am unable to without sourcing funds in a traditional manner.

I have spent the past 19 years working in the architectural/engineering design fields on various projects. In that time my experience grew from being a CAD drafter up to a Project Manager. This experience has enabled me to foresee a whole host of potential pitfalls and prevent them. But as with all projects inherent risk are part of the process.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk as with many projects is the ability for the project to get out of hand quickly for the creator. I am hoping that by streamlining my design, production, and shipping methods this will alleviate the delays and failures that afflict so many projects. All designs have been built and tested to ensure the final product is complete before being sent out. Shipping has been factored in by flat packing the design to allow us to ship your product in an efficient manner without cost overruns.
As a backer you will be rewarded with a lovely table full of terrain that you can be proud of and will stand the test of time and ham-fisted attempts by your friends to destroy.
