The New Games and Gears Battle Boards Kickstarter

 Games & Gears has been working hard for the last year to put together a new battle boards project. We have worked closely with Cipher Studios, Soda Pop Miniatures, Ninja Division, and Hawk Wargames to create 5 bespoke high quality battle boards that we hope you will be able to game on very soon!

Each of the 5 themed boards is a 6' x 4' (approx 180cm x 120cm) gaming surface and are highly detailed and textured. 

Each battle board comes in 2 foot square pieces and can be easily combined to create a diverse range of layouts, along with being easy to pack away and transport.Games & Gears has also created a unique clipping system which will enable the battle boards to hold together firmly and securely. These clips are durable, tough and simple to use, allowing for easy mobility and ensuring the whole gaming surface is long lasting and hard wearing.

The 5 themed Games & Gears Battle Boards are:

Risks and challenges

We delivered our last project on time and have won awards from miniature painting competitions. We honored all our kickstarter backers. We have been quoted to have the best customer after service in the industry and we are dedicated to you who make our projects a reality. If not for everyone this project will not happen!

Delays will occur by: Act of God, Armageddon and forces beyond our control. Manufacturing delays can happen if there are any teething issues with the moulds. However we have negated most of this by spending one year in making these and insuring we have got everything ready and down to the wire to mitigate any issues. We are ready once funded to hit the mass production button. Any delays if at all will be down to customs in your home country and your local postal service based on our past kickstarter experience.

If there are delays during different waves it will be up to 10-20 days max based on past experience and again mainly due to customs. But this issue should be a non issue as we have a great forwarder and will deliver the goods to you.
