Chapterhouse Studios 28mm Defensive Terrain Kits

Chapterhouse Studios has always endeavored to provide the gamer with kits and components that we ourselves would like to use.  After a 30 month hiatus (thanks to a legal battle that helps clarify what is legal and not in the Warhammer 40k bits industry) we are ready to start moving forward with some new kits and now... terrain.

Our first terrain project is one that will be designed to be compatible with the Games Workshop Warhammer 40k 6th edition ruleset. 

The first set will be a "Dark Tech" themed defense line that includes enough barriers and 2 weapon types to enable players to use a defense line with 28mm models.  We plan to utilize green clear resin to cast up some components to give that "stygian" look to the terrain.

Each kit comes with 4 short and 4 long defensive barriers as well as 2 different weapon platforms.

This is our premier kickstarter, and I plan on adding new defensive terrain pieces with unique looks and styles as we hit our stretch goals.  This will include red, blue and green clear resin components, space demons, evil marines, techno confederacy, space elves, dark space elves and space bugs.

The funding will be used to pay for the designing as well as the prototyping and casting of the initial sets.

Unlocked Fifth Stretch Goal at $20.5K - Space Bug Defensive terrain and weapons

The Fifth Stretch Goal has been unlocked and will be the Space Bug defensive terrain kit.   This kit comes with 4 long walls, 4 short walls, a turret mount, 2 weapon choices and a coms array.  You can see what the walls will look like, but we are revising the look of the weapons and these will be posted as they are developed.  We are also devising textures for the terrain as well.

Unlocked Sixth Stretch Goal at $23k - Dark Elf Raider Portable Force Field Walls

Due to demand for a portable shield wall for Dark Elf Raiders we are proposing a design that is more sinister then the Space Elf shield walls as another stretch goal.  You will receive the Dark Space Elf weapons and communications kits but you will receive the Dark Elf Raider shield walls instead of the Dark Space Elf Shield Walls.

$25k Stretch Goal - Space Elf Bone Wall Variant 

If we reach 25K, we will also produce a more permanent type defensive wall structure for the Space Elves.  This option will include 4 short and 4 long wall sections, 2 weapons options and a communications array along with a single base to mount the options.

For an additional $9 each backer will be able to add turret mounts to their order.

You asked and you will receive,  for $9.00 we will add another cast of the turret mounts for each race to your order.  Once the kick starter is funded, each backer will be allowed to add this to their order by survey.

Risks and challenges

I have run Chapterhouse Studios for 5 years now and have the time and experience to deliver products that comes with running a miniature wargaming model company.

Obstacles could include
Designing the Terrain - This is already done, the designs have been created and are ready to be printed. Changes will occur during the kickstarter based off customer request on the final designs.

Casting - My casting company has 5 years of experience in resin casting. While demand can outstrip supply, this will only cause a delay in shipping. There will be no issues with the physical ability to produce the items,

Shipping and Customer service - Chapterhouse has 5 years of experience shipping and answering customer concerns, so rest assured that if demand does outstrip our resources, we will acquire new teammates to take on the workload.
