About

All these products will be available via a website in the first half of 2014. Please see the Kickstarter updates or visit the Facebook page for further information.

We are a small start-up company made up of 2 experienced gamer's with a goal to launch a range of high quality buildings and scenery for wargame and roleplay systems.

Our range is built for 28mm-32mm gamers and constructed out of vacuum cast, strong polyurethane resin and white metal. The buildings are highly modifiable and magnetic allowing you a high degree of customisation. They are easy to use and convenient to store.

The magnetic sections allow easy access to the buildings interiors. Simply removing one side of the roof reveals the resin cast architectural detail and adds a new dimension by taking your gaming into the buildings. Extra interior detail kits are available for you to individually customise your buildings.

The aim of this kickstarter is to launch our range with a medieval fortified farmstead. If the kickstarter goes well we will add stretch goals of further detail kits and damaged and 'on fire' building sections. Being magnetised these sections can be swapped out easily to allow you to represent battle damage as your game progresses.

Our vision is to see our humble farmstead grow into a village then town and ultimately a castle complex. This particular set is suitable for many Dark Age periods as well as fantasy, and as the range grows we will expand into the Medieval and Tudor periods. We hope you share our vision and pledge to support our kickstarter.

Please visit our Facebook Page page for more photo's and video's. We always welcome customer feedback and you can contact us via Kickstarter or our Facebook Page.

Risks and challenges

We are already able to produce all these products in house, so do not have to rely on any outside sources. The system has been thoroughly tested so we will not have any technical difficulties to overcome. Our only problem at the moment is that we can only produce on a small scale due to our equipment. If we are successful with our Kickstarter we will be able to buy some new equipment to upscale our production. This will enable us to commence shipping the first orders by March 2014.

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE

These products contain magnets, and small white metal parts and are not suitable for children under 14.

Please read the following safety guidance -

Children should not be allowed to handle neodymium magnets as they can be dangerous. Small magnets pose a choking hazard and should never be swallowed or inserted into any part of the body.

Neodymium magnets are very strong. Keep a safe distance (at least 20cm) between magnets and objects that can be damaged by magnetism such as heart pacemakers, television, computer monitors, credit cards, bank cards, computers, diskettes and other data carriers, video tapes, mechanical watches, hearing aids, loud speakers and VCRs.

Under no circumstances should you try to cut, saw or drill the Neodymium magnets! Not only would the magnet break, but the resulting dust from the magnet is very flammable. Neodymium magnets should never be burned, as burning them will create toxic fumes.
