'Carefully' constructed from Ironpith cactus, boilerplate, desert rocks and ad-hoc-crete; FORT HARDKNOX has survived attacks by the Big Booted Bovver Bois, scores of Mutant Rokkers, Bio-Troopers, Ratts, Bratts and Governor Gograx's Guards. FORT HARDKNOX keeps on truckin'!

Lay your hard earned teef/tech/delicious rat meat down on a FORD HARDKNOX today and you can enjoy these benefits among many more...

-Flexible semi-modular design. Plonk it down on the table in seconds but create range of setups

-Minimal construction, simply assemble the three-piece walkways, push together the wall sections and you're done!

-Fort Knox is designed to take HARD KNOX. While you will want to be careful with the thinner sections (what else is new!) the wall sections are very tough, and don't need basing.

-All parts are cast in grey resin. No mold release agent is used, NO NEED TO WASH! Brush off any dust and get crackin'.

-While the set is designed as a PA fortress, the walls are equally useful in hive cities, ash wastes and shanty towns!

FORT HARDKNOX - THE BASE SET

All about The Base Fort (28mm miniature not included)
All about The Base Fort (28mm miniature not included)

The base set gives you four straight wall sections, three corner wall sections and a gate section. Also included are seven walkways and fourteen walkway supports, a set of ladders and individual plates for covering gaps and customising the fort. 



With the base set you can create a terrain centerpiece of 32cm by 32cm or a continuous wall of 1 metre length. Each wall section and walkway is a unique sculpt, and there are sixteen unique walkway support sculpts from which you will receive a selection of fourteen.

Whilst the gate section as provided in the base set is designed to be placed on the corner, an extra corner wall section (see ADD-ONS below) allows the gate to be used in place of a straight section.


UNIVERSITY OF HARD KNOX - THE 'ALL-IN' SET

University of life mate... (28mm figure not included)

This set gives you one of everything except the basic gate, allowing you to build a double-wide stonker measuring 44cm by 44cm.

SHIPPING

Fort Hardknox is a big set of rugged raw terrain, and with the flexibility offered by the upgrades offered and wide variety of potential set ups to disperse around the world the decision has been made to calculate shipping on an order-by-order basis.

Shipping will be by courier service and will be charged at cost after the campaign. Please take notice of the applicable customs charges and taxes in your location. We cannot be held responsible for extra costs or delays as a result of these. 

We would be more than happy to keep hold of your pledge and post it to a UK address at a time and date that suits you if you plan on visiting and would like to take it back with you, just let us know! You can also pick up from Cornwall if you'd prefer.

If you'd like the cost of your pledge calculated before committing, please send a message and we will crunch the numbers. Here are some quotes for illustrative purposes only at the time of the start of the campaign;
