About

Lumigenesis Industries is a hometown small business startup with the humble goal of, one day, blossoming into a multinational, evil conglomerate.  Getting from here to there is a long and winding road following the classic villian's journey, but the beginning is always the same: Tenements.  These tenements are in 28mm, laser cut from 3mm MDF, and supplied unassembled.   I recommend wood glue.  

I'm not about to presume to tell you what to do with a set of buildings and flair for em, but Batman Minis fit the size and aesthetics .  Game, and photograph to your heart's content, grab a vending machine and a base for objectives, or send a message if I've missed something (like a movie theater, working on it).  

There are 4 pledge bundles available, Small, Medium, Large, and a Matroishka.  These can be pledged for on their own, or added to any other pledge.  Anything may also be added to any level (including the $1 training level) via the a la carte list.  Just up the pledge by however much you need to cover what you want, and we'll sort it out when this closes.

Questions, comments, suggestions, and plotting can be sent to Lumigenesis@gmail.com or  Lumigenesis Industries Facebook.

Here's what you actually get, pledge bundles and a la carte.

Small Pledge Bundle

The smallest of the bundles comes with 4 buildings, a large dumpster, and some top stairs, a handful of smaller scatter pieces, and some window and ladder details, plus three bridges of different length.  It's enough for smaller games that aren't so terrain dense.

Small bundle without texture. $55 for Hex or Brick

Matrioshka

Like the nesting doll namesake, everything fits in the largest, outer shell.  The large building is a little larger than the large, and the tall is a little skinnier than the tall, but all the window attachment ports will work with any other building in the line.  Inside is 5 buildings, including the Noodle Trap facings, a dumpster, several barriers, and assorted scatter and decoration.  This thing isn't full, but still covers a 3' table.  That just means there's room for extras, dice, cards, etc.  It also has tabs to stack in a closet or back room.  Portable, easy to store, and effective.

Untextured Matroishka packed, unpacked, and arranged. $85 for hex or brick.

Medium Pledge Bundle

The medium bundle fills a table and starts to build some height with a tall and small upper level.  It also comes with 6 other buildings (one of each size), barriers, fences, and dumpsters to break up the field, and a handful of other scatter and decoration. 

Medium bundle in Brick. $100 for plain, $120 in Hex.

Large Pledge Bundle

The big one.  This one has more than enough for a large table, plus options to spare.  It has all the buildings of the medium, plus an extra small and narrow.  Most everything in the tenement line (as of right now) is here.  This is for someone that wants to create a living downtown battlefield.

Large pledge in brick. $200 for plain, $230 in hex.

A La Carte

This is the itemized list of everything.  More should be added as we go.  All attachments and facades work with all buildings (except the heights of the large and tall in the Matrioshka), but some upper building clips must be left off to clear larger items like the pedestrian bridges.


Paint racks:  They hold paint.

Capacity for 70 Citadel paints or 80 dropper bottles, your choice.
Smaller capacity, lower price. Dropper or Citadel sized, mix and match your three levels.

40mm Scatter: NYC?  DC?

Picks up heavy stuff, then sets it down somewhere else.
Forklifts often carry these.
Holds cables and smashes heroes.
Holds trash in a handy throwable size.
They tell you stuff.

Buildings:  It's mostly the point.

6 sizes of buildings.

 Buildings, but only the upper level extensions.  

Building upper levels, all 6 types.

Rooftop: put these on top of the buildings for some more vertical battlespaces.

Death from above needs something above, after all.

Walls:  This section has components that hook onto the window ports.  Some are aesthetic, others change how it all plays.

Hasn't changed a lick since 1940.
Hook it on, pull em off, change the terrain every game or glue it on. Your call.

Scatter: Free standing bits that don't need a building.

Food and guns. Any street corner in Gotham has it.
It's a giant penny. You may have seen one in a cave somewhere.

Gameplay:  Maybe a little specific. 

I love crawling in a sewer only to pop out an air vent on a skyscraper.

All pledges will be shipped via flat rate USPS.  No additional charge will be added until a pledge exceeds $300.  Each extra $300 will need another $15 box.  Shipping prices are for the US, international shipping is another matter entirely.  Send a message or leave a comment to work out details.

Risks and challenges

This project uses a laser cutter, design files, MDF, and the time to use it.
Laser problems could delay fulfillment by a month for each failure.
Design problems are mitigated by online and offsite backups.
MDF is single supplier for now, but others exist.
Time is managed by limiting rewards, bringing on interns, and purchasing more equipment.
Overall, I'm already doing this, any problems are only temporary.

    Here Comes the Caboose!

    The opposite of an early bird special. This ships last. You will be the last person to get anything from this campaign. This shipping box will sit unsealed until everyone else's has been sent. Then, I'll toss all the extra bits from R&D, accidental printing, or some cool stuff I'm testing.

    There will be a large pledge in there, add $30 for Hex or $40 for Brick, plus whatever a la carte you want. Then this box is getting filled.
