Created by Mantic Games, the brains behind the hugely popular BattleZones modular terrain and tabletop games - including The Walking Dead: All Out War, Kings of War and Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King's Quest- TerrainCrate is a new range of incredibly detailed, pre-assembled, plastic scenery to create your perfect custom dungeon or battlefield.
With this Kickstarter, you'll get fantasy terrain that's:
- Affordable! - save up to 50% on the RRP, plus additional free stretch goals
- Plastic! - this will be hard-wearing plastic, rather than potentially fragile (and often expensive) resin
- Multi-purpose! - combine different sets to create entirely new themes and rooms
- Pre-built! - all the scenery pieces are ready straight from the box
- Multi-use! - we've created TerrainCrate to be used with a range of games, RPGs and existing terrain ranges
Each piece comes in coloured plastic, so you can instantly take them out the box and place them on your gaming table, ready to play. Whether you’re exploring a mysterious dungeon, visiting a medieval town or fighting it out on the fields of battle, TerrainCrate brings your tabletop to life.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
Along with producing great value miniatures and tabletop games, another of our passions here at Mantic is fantastically detailed terrain. Scenery can bring so much to your dungeon crawling adventures or action-packed skirmishes but it doesn’t normally come cheap. Although a great deal of scenery is already available in resin, this can be expensive and potentially fragile!
So, we want to create hard-wearing, plastic terrain that can last a lifetime and doesn’t cost a dragon’s hoard! We’d love to be able to produce hundreds of incredibly detailed scenery pieces but for that to happen, we need your help to make the dream a reality.
With the TerrainCrate Kickstarter, you’ll help us create the tooling we need to produce TerrainCrate products, and in exchange you’ll be the first in the world to own this amazing range and you’ll get it at an even more amazing price!
When launched in 2018, each of the sets - such as the Wizard's Study or the Campsite - will retail at $29.99, so the Kickstarter is a great saving on the retail price. Plus you get the Kickstarter exclusive box and applicable stretch goals!
We have designed the TerrainCrate pieces to not only be useful for own products - including Kings of War and Dungeon Saga - but we've also ensured the scale is perfect for 28mm fantasy miniatures games. What's more the size is compatible with many existing scenery or terrain lines already available, so it's ideal for adding even more character to your scenery collection.
KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE PACKAGING!
By backing the Kickstarter, not only will you get a host of great scenery at an incredible price, each themed Crate will also come in special, Kickstarter exclusive packaging. You can use this hard-wearing, card box with six compartments inside to transport an entire Crate in and you'll still have room for some extras. It's the perfect size to pop in your bag when you're heading to an RPG session at your local store or a tough skirmish conflict at your gaming club. The only way to get your hands on one of these cool Crates is by backing the Kickstarter.
AT RETAIL EACH CRATE WILL HAVE AN MSRP OF $135+
In this set you’ll get everything you need to furnish a dungeon with incredibly detailed 3D scenery. From a wizard’s study packed with magical paraphernalia, to a glittering treasury overflowing with mysterious artefacts, this set is a dungeon master’s dream! In the TerrainCrate: Dungeon set, you currently get all these great pieces and we’ll be adding more as the campaign progresses!
This set is designed for skirmish wargames, fantasy-themed sports games or outdoor role-playing scenarios and includes a whole host of 3D scenery that’s ready to use straight from the box. In the TerrainCrate: Battlefield set, you get all this fantastic scenery. Plus we’ll be adding more as the campaign progresses.
In between all that dungeon crawling, why not pop to the local town to visit a tavern? Head to the blacksmith to craft a new weapon or recruit some of the town’s guards to help with your treasure-seeking jaunts. In the TerrainCrate: Town set, you get all this superb town-themed scenery and we’ll be adding even more as the campaign progresses!
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 Wizard's Study set, then increase your total pledge amount by $20.
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.
Three Crates simply not enough? You can add extra Dungeon, Battlefield or Town Crates to your pledge and you'll pay the same price again as your pledge level. For example, backers at $180 will pay $60 for each additional Crate, while backers at $195 will pay $65 for each additional Crate.
Perhaps you need an empty Crate to store any extra sets? Well, now you can add one to your pledge as an Optional Extra!
The following sets are also now available to add to your pledge as Optional Extras:
See the following update for more details about the sci-fi scenery: Update 22.
Shipping is NOT included in your pledge and will be calculated once the campaign has completed. You will be charged during the Pledge Manager for shipping.
However, if you wish to add the funds to shipping for your pledge now, in preparation for the Pledge Manager, we currently estimate that the shipping costs for the pledges will be approximately:
Single TerrainCrate - UK $6, Europe $8, North America $8 and Rest of World $15
Two TerrainCrates bundle - UK $10, Europe $15, North America $15 and Rest of World $25
Three TerrainCrates bundle - UK $12, Europe $18, North America $18 and Rest of World $30
All add-ons outside the core pledges will have their shipping calculated and charged in the Pledge Manager after the campaign has finished.
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 design process is almost complete and the next part of the process is the tooling and production. We fully expect to be shipping in May 2018 - however, the exact timing is impossible to predict. We will of course keep our backers up to date as best we can!
To date, we’ve successfully fulfilled nine Kickstarter campaigns: Kings of War, DreadBall, LOKA, Mars Attacks: The Miniatures Game, the Deadzone, DreadBall Xtreme, Dungeon Saga, Kings of War 2nd Edition and Deadzone: Infestation.
We have already shipped the first wave of The Walking Dead: All Out War and Warpath Kickstarters and are currently putting the finishing touches to DreadBall 2.0 and Star Saga: The Eiras Contract.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
