TerrainCrate 2: CRATE EXPECTATIONS

Current Stretch Goal: They think it's all over... 

TerrainCrate is back and better than ever! Our original Kickstarter was a huge success and, thanks to your support, we were able to make a massive range of affordable, unbreakable and plastic fantasy scenery that allowed gamers to create the dungeon of their dreams, bring their RPGs to life or produce a battlefield worth fighting over.

An example of how the sets can be combined (gaming mat not included).

But when it comes to terrain, we all know that more is always better! Although the first campaign included hundreds of pieces of 28mm fantasy scenery, we knew there were there other new and exciting genres that needed that special loving feeling that only a TerrainCrate Kickstarter can provide.

 When choose your Crate, you can choose from any of the four Crates below. The Crates are Bleakwood Hall, Campbell Heights, Bellevue Square and Morneville Ruins.

In a dark, dark house something stirs. In the bedroom, there’s a strange knocking from the cupboard, while down in the parlour, the piano keeps playing an eerie tune. The servant’s quarters are covered in cobwebs and dust, although fresh footprints are scattered across the cold floor. Outside, the family mausoleum and gardens are hidden in fog, but something can be seen skulking in the shadows. You’ll need to complete your investigation of Bleakwood Hall quickly and get out, before you become the latest victim of this ghostly place.

The Bleakwood Hall Crate contains: Gothic Manor, Servant's Quarters, Grim Garden and Bleakwood Mausoleum sets.

Campbell Heights used to be a bustling town. Shoppers would flock to the Two Trees Mall, while the Crystal Peaks Campsite was a popular destination for families wanting to experience the great outdoors. But that was before the outbreak. Now, the factory’s machinery remains still, and the warehouse workers have fled. Well, most have fled. Those that are left have become shuffling corpses that groan and shuffle their way towards their latest victim.

The Campbell Heights Crate contains: Two Trees Mall, Survivor's Stronghold, Crystal Peaks Camp and Abandoned Office sets.

The sound of laughter and conversation floats through the Bellevue Square. Children play in the park, chasing the ducks and squirrels. Lovers sit outside the café, admiring the statue of Lord Bleakwood before visiting the store for supplies, carefully wrapped in brown paper. Once finished they return home to their cosy cottage. No one talks about the Bellvue Hospital. Or the screams they hear from the grounds at night. Bellvue is a nice place. A quiet place. A pleasant place.

The Bellevue Square Crate contains: Market Day, Bellevue Hospital, Cosy Cottage and Peaceful Park sets.

 The sound of gunfire and shouting floats through the ruined remains of Morneville. Soldiers duck behind makeshift barricades or the crumbling remnants of Lord Bleakwood's statue. The contents of the store and homes have been pulled out into the street, or thrown from broken windows. At the checkpoint, hard-faced soldiers inspect documents, while an Alsatian carefully watches those that pass. The Morneville church is one of the few places relatively unscathed by combat, although the nave has fallen silent since the fighting started.

The Morneville Ruins Crate contains: Papers Please, Wrecks & Ruins, Crumbling Cottages and Morneville Church sets.

 With TerrainCrate 2: Crate Expectations, we want to fund even more incredible 28mm plastic scenery - but we’re moving out of the dungeon and striding across the battlefield to bring you pieces that are suitable for a wider selection of games. From Lovecraftian mansions to campsites ravaged by the undead or quiet villages ready to be explored, TerrainCrate is the perfect companion to bring any gaming experience to life. 

But making hundreds of pieces of scenery is a huge task – and that’s why we’re asking for your support! In return you’ll get boxes crammed full of incredibly detailed TerrainCrate goodness at an amazing price. With this Kickstarter, you'll get terrain that's: 

BIGGER! - more large pieces to fill your gaming tables than the original campaign

Plastic! – made from PVC plastic, TerrainCrate pieces are tough enough for the rigours of an intense gaming session. TerrainCrate 2 will use a higher grade of plastic compared to the original

Pre-built! - all the scenery pieces are ready straight from the box so you can bring your tabletop to life in seconds

Multi-use! - we've created TerrainCrate to be compatible with a range of games, RPGs and existing terrain ranges.

With your support we can turn everyone into a dedicated terrainspotter.

 Here you can find the great value optional extras you can add to your pledge to get even more fantastic scenery at a great price!If you want to add an optional extra to your pledge, increase the total amount of your pledge by the cost of the item, e.g. if you want an extra Two Trees Mall set, then increase your total pledge amount by £18.

What's more, if you only want to buy a set (rather than a full Crate) just choose 'pledge with no reward' and add the required amount. You'll be able to choose the set(s) you want in the pledge manager after the campaign has finished.

Once the campaign has finished, we'll collect the total funds and within a few weeks you'll receive something called the Pledge Manager. The Pledge Manager will be credited with any extra money you've pledged during the campaign and you can then choose which optional extras you want to add. 

Don't take our word for how awesome TerrainCrate is! Below you can watch a selection of reviews for the original TerrainCrate. 

Finally Rob talks about TerrainCrate 2 with Andy Burdis from BlackJackLegacy. 

Shipping is NOT included in your pledge and will be calculated/charged once the campaign has completed. We recommend waiting until the pledge manager to add the exact amount required. See below regarding import duties and taxes. 

We currently estimate that the shipping costs for the pledges will be approximately:

  •  UK: £6-10 (depending upon amount of Crates)
  •  USA (shipping hub): £10-15 (depending upon amount of Crates)
  •  Europe (shipping hub, if required post Brexit): £10-£30 (depending upon amount of Crates)
  •  Canada (shipping hub): £10-18 (depending upon amount of Crates)
  •  Australia/New Zealand (shipping hub): £15-30 (depending upon amount of Crates)
  •  Rest of World: £15-40 (depending upon amount of Crates)

All optional extras will have their shipping calculated and charged in the Pledge Manager after the campaign has finished.

Please note, we are unable to ship to these countries: Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan. 

We are dedicated to our retail partners worldwide therefore we are delighted to offer you a retail pledge for our new Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

There are a number of risks with any Kickstarter project, especially getting accurate timings for such complex products with so many components.

With this project, the terrain pieces are designed and the next stage is getting them tooled and produced. We predict that we will begin shipping in January 2020 - however, the exact timing is impossible to predict and there is always the potential for delay with products produced in China. We will of course keep our backers up to date as best we can once the project closes.

To date, we’ve successfully fulfilled 15 Kickstarter campaigns: Kings of War, DreadBall, LOKA, Mars Attacks: The Miniatures Game, Deadzone, DreadBall Xtreme, Dungeon Saga, Kings of War 2nd Edition, Deadzone: Infestation, The Walking Dead: All Out War, DreadBall Second Edition, Warpath, Star Saga: The Eiras Contract, TerrainCrate and Kings of War: Vanguard.

We currently only have one outstanding Kickstarter to deliver - Hellboy: The Board Game. Funded in June 2018, this is due to start shipping in late March/early April.

REFUNDS

Upon request refunds may be given within 30 days of the campaign ending, including fees. Following that time, refunds may be given minus Kickstarter and payment fees. In order to request a refund you must contact support@manticgames.com

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

By backing this campaign you acknowledge that the components, artwork and design elements for TerrainCrate 2 may change before being produced - although we will inform backers of any major design changes.

If you do not complete the pledge manager within the time specified when the pledge manager is sent, you agree that your contribution to the campaign was a donation and your pledge is fulfilled. Of course, we will use our discretion on a case by case basis. Completing the pledge manager is the ONLY way for us to confirm your shipping address and pledge details, as well as making sure we hit the production timelines.

By pledging on this Kickstarter you agree that will pay for any shipping and any import or other duties required in your country. You also accept that you are liable for providing us with the correct shipping details upon request and we are not responsible for items lost in transit if sending to an incorrectly provided address. We also cannot ship to PO boxes and you must provide an alternative shipping in this circumstance.

Although we are aiming to deliver TerrainCrate 2 to Kickstarter backers before the game is available at retail, production and shipping delays can lead to delivery at the same time or following the retail release.

If you do not agree to these terms, then please purchase TerrainCrate 2 items once they're available at your friendly local gaming store in 2020.
