BASE SYSTEM ROOTS
When I moved from hex map to miniature rules gaming, I struggled to find any decent affordable scenery.
Thus I decided to make some myself. These were sold online under the name of Mechanized Designworks. I found many other people liked them.
This led to my decision to make an entire range accessible to the public through DFA, in the form of the BASE System. With your support DFA intends to create the largest range of affordable, high quality modular 6mm scale scenery and buildings. With your continued support, the range has scope to expand indefinitely.
BASE System sections will be made from 3D printed design originals. Each section will be individually hand-finished before casting in resin, creating a high-quality finish suitable for your choice of model paint.
BASE SYSTEM CORE
BASE Systems are modular.
There are many buildings, from stand-alone structures and themed sets, to totally modular sets that allow players to build a base as big or small as they wish. A host of new building designs and base layouts can be created by simply repositioning individual sections; while the same parts can be endlessly reconfigured to provide new vistas for each game.
If you're looking to build a small outpost or firebase or a big planetary command centre for your games, BASE has you covered. Best of all: because BASE System is modular, you can take it apart and redesign it when setting up your next game.
Infinite possibilities and configurations await with BASE.
BASE SYSTEM VISUAL
BASE offers a uniform look and feel across sets in the range.
While each module in a set is interchangeable, it will still conform to the overall chosen appearance of your tabletop. In addition, you can make sets look entirely different, yet cohesive, with a few additional components in different paint livery.
EVOLVING YOUR BASE SYSTEM
Start small and go large … or start big.
The choice is yours. The BASE System is available in box sets and individual components. You can evolve your BASE System at your own speed by adding components or sets as and when it suits you. (To help get you started with this, you will also receive two of some buildings at specific pledge levels.)
BASE SYSTEM DIVERGENCE
BASE Systems can be used in a variety of different game systems. In fact, our range of sci-fi buildings can be used for any 6mm wargame that requires high technology or near-future looking buildings … or for any other model or scenic application you choose.
Once funding goals are reached, we will create a web store to support and extend the range. As a backer, your name will be mentioned on our Backers page.

FUNDING AND STRETCH GOALS
Our funding goal of £5000 has been reached. Thank you all for your support! This money will be used to buy raw material to produce moulds, cast buildings in resin and pay for the metal parts included in some buildings.
So here come the Stretch Goals!!
Much more is possible. Given the chance, DFA can produce some quite mind-blowing modules and centrepieces that would form the crown jewel in any gamer’s collection; pieces which our design team already have on the drawing (and have been hinted at in our Facebook group). Reaching advanced pledge levels mean we can afford to do this.
SOCIAL STRETCH GOALS
We need your help to unlock the big stuff so share on facebook, tweet, what ever you can do to bring more backers in and when certain targets are reached we will unlock new rewards.
Shipping is NOT included in your pledge and will be calculated once the campaign is completed. You will be charged for shipping during the Pledge Manager stage.
We currently estimate that the shipping costs for the £100 pledge level will be approximately:
UK £10, Europe £15,
North America £20
Rest of World £30.
All add-ons in addition to the core pledge will have their shipping calculated and charged in the Pledge Manager stage after the campaign has finished.
Risks and challenges
As with any new product launch, the biggest challenge post-funding will be to meet the expected demand for product within a reasonable time. The DFA team will bring their previous experience in model design and manufacture to play in launching a successful venture. It is important for us to provide you, the backer, with a great product; and any potential problems will be addressed in a timely fashion and with clear notice.
Additional challenges are involved in the prototype-to-production stage based on any 3rd party parts required to achieve a complete DFA kit. As always, any delay or potential change in this area will be communicated to all backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
