About

LEN Design Concepts would like to introduce the DragonStone Modular Dungeon System; Abandoned Mines Theme set. A beautifully hand-crafted modular dungeon system that is both durable and affordable. This gaming terrain would enhance any roleplaying game that uses any setting or system, provided of course that it is using 25mm scale miniatures.  

I have spent years playing tabletop pen and paper roleplaying games, but they seemed to lack something tangible to bring out the realism. I started out experimenting with terrain using Legos. This worked out great, but was also expensive. Further experimentation and research uncovered Hirst Arts. They have molds that produce highly detailed parts and pieces that are just what I was looking for.

I started building dungeons and caverns for my Pathfinder games and it was well received. The downside was that I was building them to suit a specific need. So I developed a way of making it modular, portable and able to create a wide variety of patterns that would suit any game. This was how DragonStone was born.  This first run is using the Abandoned Mines Theme.  My prototypes, including the images show below, are built with Hydrostone. However, actual production pieces will be cast in high quality, durable Alumilite resin. 

Below are some prototypes of the pieces that were shown in the video. Please note that these are rough prototypes.  Actual production pieces will be more detailed and fit better.  Production pieces will be available in both unpainted and painted finishes.  Unpainted pieces would be a tan color and painted pieces would be painted and fully finished.  The floor tiles are made up of four different types of tiles. All have a 2” footprint and are approximately ½” high. They are the normal stone floor, the track tile, track turn tile and track stop tile. 

The corners and walls also follow the same 2” footprint. They are 2 ½” high. 

A small amount of pieces can be used to form a basic mine. The mine below was built with part of a Basic Set. Please note that the miniatures are not included and are only here for scale. 

Now on to the sets available. Below is a breakdown of each of the available sets: 

Starter Set  4 Corners 
7 Walls

This project has a twist with its rewards.  The first backer that is “Bishop” Level or higher will receive a bonus Basic Set! The bonus set will match your level when it comes to being painted or not. Also there will be a bonus item for backer that brings the project to successfully funded status. The bonus item is going to be a custom alter dais with a trap door. The item is still in development stage and I will release images one it’s completed. Both will also receive a special acknowledgement on website and social media channels.

Once the project reaches funding goal, I will be releasing a series of stretch goals until the project ends. Stretch goals will provide bonus pieces to all backers that are “Bishop” level and higher. For now there is one stretch goal available. 

$4,000 Stretch Goal
Unlocks Success Package (endcaps and additional tracks) 1 regular endcap
1 collapsed endcap
1 Right Join Track
1 Left Join Track
1 Cross Track Backers above Bishop Level receive for free  

Backers shipping withing the United States will have free Ground Shipping included with their pledges.

International backers will need to pay the additional international shipping charges.

Please note that all international backers are responsible for any and all import duties and fees.  Please consider this before pledging.  We cannot accept returns or refund pledges after they are shipped.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenges that this project will overcome, with the assistance of backers, is as follows:

*A licensing agreement with Hirst Arts to use his blocks as a basis for my designs.

*Weather, materials, and labor issues may also cause production delays. However, once the project is funded, all these challenges will be met. I already have a team assembled that will be able to boost this project into full production. From design, casting, finishing and packaging, the team is able to meet the needs of this project and beyond. The estimated time of delivery is generously set to allow for a high number of pledge rewards. If the items can be shipped prior to the estimated time, they will be along with notification that it was shipped.

After the project is funded, all backers will receive regular updates on the process. Any changes to the estimated delivery date, regardless of reason, will be immediately communicated to the backers. If there was to be a delay, then there will be a little something extra included with every shipment.

Even though this project will assist with the launch of an online store, all pledge products will be given priority over store orders.
