A ground-breaking tabletop building system for 28mm figures, made of durable, highly detailed, precise laser cut MDF and grey board. All buildings come ready to use, no glue required. THIS IS NOT A KIT!

This unique system for 28mm tabletop games and RPG's uses strong earth magnets to attach the building exteriors (skins) to a base box. 

Construction couldn't be simpler! The magnetic system means the buildings can be easily and quickly assembled, disassembled and reassembled over and over in various combinations.

Not only can you change skins to create different building combinations from within a range, you can also select skins from other ranges depending on the game or period you wish to play. This cross-game terrain system means you can build a Wild West town one evening, then just by changing the skins on the base box, a fantasy village for a wargame the next.

All skins are pre-assembled and designed to flat-pack away. This  makes transportation much easier and considerably cuts down storage needed, keeping everyone happy.

What's more, your base box can be used as storage for your figures and other gaming elements, such as dice and tokens.

Remember: all buildings come ready to use, no glue required. And did we mention:

THIS IS NOT A KIT!

We need your help to raise the funds to get manufacturing underway. With this we'll be able to purchase materials and fabricate our Fantasy Series One range. Any additional funds will be put towards developing our new designs.

We have designed, tested, developed and fabricated each stage of the buildings all the way from initial sketches to production.

Despite having to frequently rein Nick in - as he wanted to expand a village into a metropolis - we have completed all the designs for the Fantasy Series One buildings.

We are currently developing Sci-Fi, Wild West and Gothic Fantasy skins.

If you want to help influence the direction we are going in, we'd love you to take part in the survey here. Once we have the results, we will use the chosen skin as the basis for our next range.  

  • We think we might be on to something here.
  • We can't do it without you. The realities of manufacturing mean that without you we won't be able to bring this project to life.
  • We're small fry in a big pond.
  • We'd love your views and interests to guide our next direction.
  • Save us from wasted lives and broken dreams.

We will charge shipping once the campaign is over. We want to strike a fair balance of value for our backers while ensuring high quality and fair shipping prices. We have based our costs on Royal Mail but once we are ready to ship we will review quotes from other trusted couriers to get the best deal for our backers. As a guide to costs, we have included weights for all individual buildings e.g. Royal Mail ships a single-storey standard building (approx 200g) second class for £3.10 to the UK and £4.14 to the USA. Keep in mind that costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose. Take a look here to get an idea of a rough guide to costings.

Shipping fees include all packaging.

Please send us a comment if you'd like any further details about shipping. Of course we’ll always be happy to give you an estimate. 

Thank you for visiting our campaign! 

We value your feedback and support and would love to hear from you. Drop us a line at info@thelodestone.co.uk or connect with us on

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter and we are aware that campaigns and journeys of this nature may not be infallible or problem free. While no one can predict unexpected obstacles, we are committed to being upfront, honest, and professional as we work through any challenges that may arise. We’ve done our best to mitigate risks and challenges and have carefully prepared for any potential delays. We're eager to learn and we also have a manufacturing guru up our sleeve for additional advice if required (he's family so he's under obligation).

With our ability to move straight into production, our combined project, business and finance experience and the contingencies in place, we think we’re hitting the starting blocks in pretty good shape.

We're ready and good-to-go! There's no more design work for this pledge range and prototypes have been developed to manufacturing standard. All elements have been tested, materials sourced to scale and manufacturing levels and reliable networks established. We've built in a generous timeline to allow for potential issues and any possible delays if we need to increase production significantly. However, we anticipate that buildings will be winging their way to backers a lot earlier.
