M4 Collapsible Cardboard Scenery

CA$ 20,631

MC Studio presents the M4 Cardboard Scenery System for science-fiction miniature games (scale : 28 to 32mm). We designed this product for players who have minimal storage space and those who need to haul scenery to a friend’s home or gaming store. One of our Pledge level is called «Table in a Box». It comes with enough scenery for a 4’x4’ table and will fit into a Bankers Box for easy storage and transport. (see Reward Level 8 for details)

Watch the DATASPHERE interview with Marc C on YouTube : (the sound quality is poor. Sorry about that.)

Easy assembly and Modular : Each element of the system is easy to assemble for play and disassemble for storage. Yet it retain its structural integrity during play. The M4 (4.25"x4.25") and M2 (2.5"x2.5") Modules have accessible interiors and are stackable. Using the Connector-Corridor it is possible to create a wide variety of configurations : L-Shape, T-Shape, S-Shape, O-Shape, etc. In other words, with enough Modules you will be able to change the set up of your table constantly. Which is the best value your money can get!

Cardboard : The sturdy (.098’’/2.5mm) cardboard we selected for this product is less heavy than MDF but has the same thickness. It will support large metal miniatures without bending or warping. Laser cut and engraved our product offers the same level of detail as comparable MDF products. 

The cardboard is sold unpainted.

 Paint : You will be happy to learn that our cardboard can be painted using traditional methods (spray cans, air brushes and brushes) without warping or bulging. The pictures on this page speak for themselves. We will add a "How To" page by painter Antoine Bergeron (https://www.facebook.com/lezonion) on our website once the KS is funded.

STRETCH GOALS :

• Every Stretch Goal will expand the M4 product line :

Add-Ons : We want to send your Rewards as fast as possible. To avoid long production delays (and skyrocketing shipping prices) there will be no add-ons for this KS. (We will have a transactional website in November 2015 for those who wish to buy more M4 Products.)

Delivery : Shipping of Rewards will begin in August 2015 and should end in October. (This period may be longer if the KS is very successful.)

Shipping : 
• Available in Canada and the USA (except Hawaii) only. (Sincere apologies to our Worldwide friends. International rates from Canada are not competitive for us at this juncture. We will continue looking for favorable rates. Hopefully these will be available on our website in November 2015.)

• Backers living in the greater Montreal region can redeem* the shipping fees by picking up their Rewards locally. (*Extra M4-Modules and/or Containers up to the value of the shipping fees.)

Risks and challenges

New Business, Old Hands : We are using Kickstarter to launch MC Studio. Although this is a new company my partner and I are used to working together. In fact our working relationship goes back 25 years. I am responsible for design and daily operations. My associate is responsible for finance and accounting. We don’t forsee any major problems. We will be using a laser cutter from a US manufacturer with a reliable track record and tech support. The local supplier of cardboard has been in business a long time. I will be working full-time on this project. I have 25 years experience in managing multiple projects from start to delivery. Of course, we can’t plan for every eventuality but we have the bases covered and will adapt our tactics once the engagement starts!
