Fantasy MDF Tabletop Building Terrain

DKK 11,670

Why another tabletop terrain project? 

  • To give you an entire village-in-a-box! 
  • A unique design, that gives the illusion of tiled roofs, but where you can easily balance your precious miniatures! 
  • Easy to store - can be assembled and disassembled over and over!
  • Quick to assemble - no use of glue is required! 
  • Simple to use - the MDF surface reacts well to many types of paint!  

What you get in the box 

  • 16 fantasy buildings (4 of each type, see below) 
  • Optional extra height for 8 buildings 
  • Optional extra tall "wizards tower" 
  • Assembly & painting guidelines

How are they made?

We are posting daily about prototyping on our website, and uploading loads of pictures on our Facebook page.

Assembly

Each building can be assembled in 30 seconds...

... more or less!

Type 1: The Roaring Lions 

The tallest building in the Dread Streets - at least if no one nearby dares add another store! 

Painting: Acrylic paint from the Army Painter.

Type 2: The Twin Dragons  

The wary citizens of the Dread Streets make scarecrows of their houses - but there are no crows, only neighbors with thieving fingers... 

Painting: Shellac combined with acrylic paint from Vallejo.

Type 3: The Lucky Seahorses 

The shape of a seahorse is said to bring luck in the Dread Streets. Nothing else does... 

Painting: Not paint at all, but stain from Miller. 

Type 4: The Firebreathers  

Considered a dire and foreboding shape - since gutter water is often sprayed from the mouths of the Firebreathers onto the onlookers!

Painting: Spraypaint and acrylic paint from the Army painter.

"The Wizards Tower" 

Wizards are not to be trusted, and are required by the law of the Dread Streets to live at least two stories above ground level. 

Painting: Stain from Miller.

Measurements 

The buildings fit with miniatures standing at 25-32 millimeters.

  • Total building height ranges from 12-15 cm / 5-6 inches.
  • The distance from ground to rooftop is 7,5 centimeters / 3 inches.
  • The area of each building is 7 x 7 cm / approximately 3 x 3 inches.
  • The extra stores add 6 cm / 2,5 inches to the height of a building. 
  • The "wizards tower" accessory adds 12 cm / 5 inches to a building.

Disclaimer

MDF buildings are supplied unpainted. Doors and windows not included, but are available from Tabletop-Art and other fine manufacturers.

Risks and challenges

The Dread Streets terrain is made from MDF (medium density fibre), and cut with a Redsail laser cutter.

Laser cutting in MDF is time consuming and requires special care. For that reason, we have entered a business agreement with the company 3Dtwix in Sønderborg Denmark, who have the expertise and equipment for laser cutting.

The only real risk is, that the machinery will require repairs, postponing the project. For that reason we have chosen the Redsail machine, which is known for its reliability.
