About this project
Risks and challenges
The largest challenge with completing the project is incorporating the new equipment into the manufacturing process to ensure all sets are completed in a timely manner. To address this we have two plans to approach this.
First, our team includes IT professionals with experience with the equipment but not with the software. We are prepared to bring in additional expertise to help ensure the new manufacturing process is successful.
Second, in case the process is taking longer than expected, we can continue to fullfil the pledge orders with our current processing at a slower pace.

Yes, all of our terrain is hand painted. We realize that this fact is not clearly apparent in our description or on our website and we will fix that shortly.
Each of the pledge rewards is discounted from the retail price we will sell these items on our website or at any convention we attend and the pledge reward also includes shipping costs. The retail value of the pledge rewards is as follows:
1) Throne Room Accessory Set - $12.50 + $5.15 Shipping (international shipping varies by country but averages ~$14
2) Each room has a retail value of $50 + $11 Shipping (International shipping varies by country but averages about ~$34.
We use a combination of Hirst Arts and our own scultings.
Some have noticed the similarity of some of our pieces to Hirst Arts terrain and that is because we are a licensed reseller of Hirst Arts terrain. We use a combination of Hirst Arts pieces and our own sculptor. We use Hirst Arts blocks to build larger pieces, then create molds to cast the modular pieces as a single terrain piece. We use our own artists to sculpt accessories and other pieces that Hirst does not have to create an entire terrain assortment. For example, within the Throne Room set the 4" circular piece, throne, round columns, and small dwarven door are our own design.
