About

As every player knows, the board on which you play on is one of the most critical aspects to the game and can really influence your overall experience. One of the things I've noticed in my time with the hobby is a lack of availability for terrain options which can really limit game play. My endeavor is to broaden that horizon for the tabletop war gaming community and bring affordable and more diverse scenery to the table by opening a casting company to provide a new experience for wargamers every where. I just need a little help with the initial start up costs for the equipment so that I can provide a reliable and consistent quality to the products I want to offer.  I am currently in the middle of developing the website which will have a full catalogue of all products for ordering through an integrated sales application. Development should finish on that within the next 1-2 weeks, though deployment will wait until an estimated 4-6 weeks after completion of backing to ensure full aquisition of all necessary materials, mold production, and quality assurance. As for the specific materials used in the casting process, i will decline to get into specifics as there are a few i am still investigating, but i will be using a few different types which will vary based of what is being cast (high or low detail items, larger or small, etc). All of the initial terrain pieces will be of my own sculpting/production using conventional methods then converted over into resin in a multi stage process to allow for modularity, magnetizing, and changes to the initial piece to increase quality of the finalized product. Initially everything will launch as made to order with an estimated 2 weeks between order and delivery within the continental United States. Once things pick up and i get a better idea of what demand is like for what products, I will then began implementing stocked items and increasing production to batch cast items, but I anticipate an initial output capability of 8-12 casts per day (may fluctuate depending on what is being cast that day). Assuming things go well and pick up, i intend on quarterly catalog expansions, and implementing digital design on new products down the road, but due to cost and a learning curve, that is on the back burner for now. My current aim is for Sci-Fi terrain for games such as 40k, infiniti, and the like. I intend to expand on stuff for the factions that do not currently have much support in the ways of scenery. The funds from this funding will go towards obtaining the materials and equipment to produce the molds for the initial launch items.

Risks and challenges

Creating the master molds for this project requires some moderately expensive equipment I do not currently own (reason for this crowd funding) in order to achieve a consistent and reliable casting process. Production will begin upon acquisition of aforementioned equipment and molding and subsequent casting will begin after immediately afterwards.
