Tabletop Props is committed to providing detailed and affordable props and terrain on the miniature scale.
What is Tabletop Props?
I have a dream of creating an entire line of miniatures based solely around props and terrain. This vision has two main goals:
I tried to jump to the chase and get the mold and production costs paid for on the first miniature in the collection, the Covered Wagon.
Unfortunately, the Covered Wagon didn't get funded... yet.
It's difficult to produce something like this at an affordable rate while paying for both an expensive mold and "free" shipping to Kickstarter backers. So, moving on to plan B.
Introducing Water Tiles!
The goal of this project is to generate enough revenue to pay for the mold costs of Tabletop Props before relaunching a second campaign.
Water Tiles are my own hand-made, hand-painted creation.
Water Tiles are an awesome addition to any tabletop game. These inexpensive, lightweight, and durable terrain pieces add an instant water feature to any scene or encounter.
The top of each tile is textured to refract light, creating an amazing glistening effect in play.
The bottom of each Water Tile is hand-painted with multiple colors to create a depth and realism like that found in nature.
These are the most often used Water Tiles in my games. Almost every outdoor encounter has a water feature, just because I can. Measuring approximately 6" x 6", these Pond Tiles are small enough to use many at a time. Set includes three Pond Tiles, no two will be alike.
Measuring approximately 10" x 10", these Lake Tiles are great for that water based encounter. The "Watcher in the Water" doesn't live in a pond, it needs a lake! Set includes three Lake Tiles, no two will be alike.
Measuring approximately 4" x 10", each of these River Tiles end with a 4" width so they can be interconnected for varied terrain. Set includes two River Tiles and three river bends for course changes. Each River Tile will be painted classic blue so multiple pieces will flow together without color variation.
Measuring 3" x 12", these six Canal Tiles are perfect for that man-made waterway. Ideally suited for a sewer scene, by default these six Tiles come painted in a nasty, brownish-green poo color. Six Canal Tiles means you can overlap for a T junction and have a Canal branch off of each path.
Each square Sheet Tile measures 12" x 12" and each Shoreline Tile 12" x 4". Placed all together, these six Tiles measure 28" x 24", perfect for that huge water scene or naval warfare.
Do you want an extra Pond or Lake? Maybe you want a longer River, or a River with branching directions. Add these Add-Ons to any pledge and get what you want!
Pond - $3
Lake - $4
River with Bend - $4
River with "Y" - $5
Create awesome scenes with these add-ons! One set of River Tiles along with the River with "Y" add-on can create this river scene (shown with exploded "Y" for reference).
Canal Tiles (x2) - $5
Sheet & Shoreline Tiles - $5
Substitute any variant paint for any piece you receive, no extra charge!
If you'd like to receive your Tiles unpainted, awesome! Sorry, but there are no discounts for the standard reward tiers on unpainted Tiles.
However, Add-On package prices are reduced by $1 if you'd like to receive those unpainted.
Sorry, no. The logistics of trying to create, package, and ship custom cut pieces is too difficult. You get what you get and you'll enjoy it. :)
Risks and challenges
The challenge is gaining enough funding to pay for the mold costs of the Tabletop Props miniatures line. These Water Tiles are hand-made, so this challenge does not apply to this project.
Depending on the popularity of these Water Tiles, I may have more to produce than one person alone could hope to accomplish. In this case I will track down a company that can cut out the Tiles en mass.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
