About

Metro Morph is a modular building terrain system for 28–32mm tabletop miniature games.

It is an affordable way to quickly and easily fill gaming tables with terrain that is visually striking, strong, and versatile. You don’t need to cut, glue, or paint anything — just open the pack, create the unique structures you want, and start playing within minutes! When you’ve finished your game, Metro Morph can be packed away flat, ready to be reassembled in a totally new configuration for your next game.

Metro Morph gives you the ability to fill a whole table with awesome terrain

Whether you are playing a dungeon-crawler, skirmish battle, or full-blown war-game, the extreme modularity of Metro Morph will meet your needs. Create 2D floor plans, light, multi-storey terrain, or even fully enclosed, line-of-sight-blocking obstacles.

With Metro Morph the choice is yours!

 The Metro Morph system is made up of two major components.

The card panels which make up the wall, floor and other structural elements of a building and the plastic clips which firmly join these all together.

All panels will come on punchboards, ready to be popped out and used

This is how simply it all comes together.

While the Metro Morph system has been designed to be as modular as possible and give you the freedom to create whatever structures you can think of, it also includes a series of PDF blueprints. These give you easy to follow step by step instructions to build a series of predefined structures which will get you to the table even faster.

Easy to follow guides mean less time setting up, more time playing

Metro Morph is a durable terrain solution which looks great on the tabletop. We achieve this through our simply, yet ingenious sticker system which come with every Core Set and Add-On kit.

The Metro Morph Core Set is the ideal starting point for bringing your wargaming table to life with fantastic looking terrain structures that are designed to withstand the knocks of battle.

This set represents the heart of the Metro Morph system, offering a truly staggering array of potential build options that have been meticulously designed to integrate seamlessly with one another.

The initial set carries a sci-fi industrial theme, capturing the atmosphere of a bleak, mechanised world full of grime and very little hope. It’s the perfect location for all your modern sci-fi miniature wargames.

Being highly modular by design, means that the Metro Morph Core-Set can be used to fill gaming tables in a variety of different ways. From smaller single-storey buildings to giant multi-level city blocks, the Core-Set has the flexibility to become the terrain you need for your next game at hand.

Shipping on all pledges will be charged after the close of the campaign. As we are using a pledge manager to make your purchasing easier, we are able to charge shipping and handling fees based on your postal address rather than an arbitrary amount.

We have striven to keep shipping charges as low as possible, and will continue throughout the campaign to negotiate the best possible deals to pass on to you.

We'll be shipping from within all these locations
We'll be shipping from within all these locations

 With countries indicated there should be no reason to pay additional taxes, VAT charges or custom fees as that cost has been included in the shipping payment. At present our postal estimates* are:

* These are initial estimates based off current quotes and may be subject to change by the time of delivery. Additional Add-Ons and stretch goals may further alter this amount based on added weight and size. To be used as a base guide only.

** No additional taxes, VAT, import duties or custom fees will be charged. All are included in this price.

Note: Above prices are indicative for backers who finalise their orders before the close of the pledge manager. Finalising a pledge after the pledge manager’s deadline will incur additional fees.

Rather than being overly optimistic we have erred on the side of caution with our projected delivery times. Mass manufacturing and shipping more often than not contain unexpected setbacks and delays which can hold a project back by considerable lengths of time. As such, while we can never truly predict the future, these dates are a more realistic guideline we can do best to deliver upon.

Below you can find some videos which give more in depth information as to how Metro Morph works

Risks and challenges

Production

While this is Crowd Forge Studio’s first project on such a scale, we feel confident we will be able to deliver the final product both on budget and on time, due to our diligent pre-planning and our tendency to err on the side of caution for our projected timeframes.

We have had great communication with our proposed manufacturer from the earliest stages of design, which has allowed us to plan ahead and circumnavigate most of the common pitfalls inherent in such projects. As a result, the majority of the displayed designs are close to being finalised, only requiring some slight colour modification, final templating and any realignment based off the samples we will receive once pre-production kicks off.

Even so, we have allowed for a fairly long pre-production phase. This gives us time to ensure the quality of the final product, and allows appropriate time to tackle any challenges we meet. This timeline also means we avoid the Lunar New Year celebrations in China, which would otherwise delay our production.

Although it is unlikely, it is possible that we may face issues related to our design templates, e.g. colour selection needing to be altered. While we will endeavour to keep the final product as close to our prototypes as possible, we may have to make some adjustments to accommodate for the process of mass manufacturing. If this is the case we will give you prompt, clear updates so you are totally informed.

Shipping

Shipping cargo from one part of the planet to many other parts is a challenge for any Kickstarter in this category. But again, we have planned an over-ample timeframe for shipping, to accommodate both the usual delays and any unexpected circumstances. While we can only give approximations based off our best and current knowledge, we would rather provide later dates and higher estimates than recklessly oversell something.

Communication

We have backed our share of Kickstarters, so we know to expect the unexpected. And we understand how crucial it is to maintain open and clear communication with backers throughout the entire process, not only during the initial campaign but up to and beyond final delivery. We want everyone who makes a pledge to have a clear idea of what is happening with the project at any given time, and we want to be accessible to backers who have questions regarding the project.

Terms and Conditions

You acknowledge with your pledge that the final product, as stated above, may differ from that of the initial prototype shown in materials, appearance, and reward contents.

To minimise delays and get accurate estimates for mass production, we must keep strict deadlines. As such you agree that you will confirm your final reward through our pledge manager (see FAQ) on or before its closing time. While we will endeavour to accommodate later orders/revisions via email up until four weeks after the close of the pledge manager, this will be entirely discretionary on our part and may result in not all rewards being able to be fulfilled. We will contact you by email in regards to the closing of our pledge manager on no fewer than three separate occasions to ensure you have ample notification to confirm your final reward. If we receive no email contact from you within eight weeks of the close of the pledge manager, then you accept that your reward is void.

As gamers who dearly love this project and want to see it helping people to populate their tabletops with awesome terrain, getting this product made and delivered to you is our number one priority. So we will do everything in our power to get your rewards to you as closely as outlined and in as timely a fashion as possible.

By pledging to this project you agree to these terms.
