Where have all the hills gone?
Having spent years playing, working,organizing tournaments and attending games shows, hills seem to have become a fairly rare piece of gaming terrain..
So we have decided to launch a kickstarter project, with three sizes of hills. Each hill is hand crafted, built upon a HDF base, then polystyrene is sculptured on, including any escarpments or rock edges, covered in Two layers of plaster, before two layers of sand is glued on, small rocks are added.
Once completely dry, the hill is painted in mid brown base coat, rocks etc are painted dark grey, once dry the hills are dry brushed in different shades, then magic is added. A mixture of static flock, scatter the odd tuft is added. the hills are fairly mobust, and being hand made can be easily repared in the event of being badly damaged.
We have been making a few hills and always sold them at shows, but not many people ever get to see them! hence kickstater, Kickstarter gives us some huge advantages, for example economy of scale comes in so we can purchase large ammounts of HDF or Flock, and produce in a production line.
Risks and challenges
We have been trading for over five years and have good relationships with suppliers, in most cases we have trade accounts, which allows us build at these prices.
Biggest risk, is perhaps weather, if it is really damp it could add a few days extra to construct the hills. we intend to construct in batches so we would ship the first customers first, and make sure we keep communications open.
This is our first KICKSTARTER.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
