About this project

We have been developing a new technique for making laser cut terrain. This kickstarter is the result of months of work and we are very happy with the results. Most MDF terrain on the market is blocky and flat. It's always a joy to see how other designers can stretch the medium further and further. However, MDF has some serious limitations. You're stuck with a thickness around 2-3mm and it's not flexible at all. Our process combines the flexibility of thin styrene with the strength of the MDF. The result is the ability to add curves to the designs. This allows us to curve walls and corners for a unique scifi look. It also opens the doors to add more depth to the design. We can use this to recess doors and windows into frames for a more realistic look. We can also add optional details like vents and roof hatches to the kits.

The Plan

You might be asking yourself, Why is an established company using kickstarter to launch a product line. That answer requires a bit of back story? CorSec began as a side project about 3 years ago. It slowly grew into a modest side business but the release of the Omni-Stand flight stand system changed everything. Suddenly, we had what looked like a viable full time company on our hands. We have been toiling for a few years now and continue to release new and innovative products. However, We started with a shoe string budget and have been able to maintain a moderate level of growth without any outside investing or much in the way of debt. The truth is we have a lot more ideas but not a lot of capitol to spend on big expansive equipment that might not pay for it's self right out the door. This is where you and kickstarter enter the picture. We wanted to make a cool and innovative product that filled a much needed niche. We also wanted to release a lot of terrain at one time instead of releasing in smaller chunks. So Kickstarter is a great fit for that.

How It's going to Work

The first four buildings will be available based on the reward levels as specified. We will also have two types of stretch goals.

  • Add-ons: These will be larger terrain pieces that you will need to add extra funding to your pledge for. You can also add-on more of the original buildings so you can get as many of one item as you'll need.
  • Stretches: These will be items like additional doors and detail packs. As the campaign progresses we may also add some other larger items to the list of stretches. These will be available per kit mostly or tied to a specific reward level.

Ok enough chatting time to show off the buildings.

$8 Pledge Level: Comm Equipment

This small pack of terrain items are largely scaleless and can be used from 6mm all the way to 28mm. We wanted to include something that gave the 6mm and 15mm gamers a chance to participate. Some of our stretch goals are being designed to work in both scales as well. Need more towers? Just add those on my increasing your pledge value.

$15 Pledge Level: 28mm Bunker

Dimensions: 250mm by 125mm by 53mm

This Bunker is designed to give good sight lines and a unique look. The front window is curved and has a slightly larger window to accommodate a larger mounted weapon. It also features two infantry sized hallways with firing slits to protect your troops and get more guns down range. They are designed to comfortably fit 2 figures on 30mm bases,

$25 Pledge Level: 28mm Barracks

Dimensions: 300mm by 165mm by 68mm
Your troops need to sleep sometime. These barracks buildings provide protection and comfort while off-duty. The 4 doors give you a lot of escape routes. You never know when giant alien bugs might bust through the floor. We also included a roof hatch on the accessory sprue just in case things get really dicey.

$35 Pledge Level: 28mm Motor Pool

Dimensions: 250mm by 190mm by 120mm

This motor pool is designed to last. Reinforced walls and a compact design make it a secure building that can even double as an armory for the fire base. It features a drive through maintenance bay for deliveries or to fix your broken tanks. The doors are optional so you can model it without them and model a vehicle inside the bay.

$45 Pledge Level: 28mm Command Center


Dimensions: 300mm by 250mm by 140mm

This is the building you need to push all that paper that runs every army on the planet. The rear features a large window for the base commander to relax and look at the trees while he decided if you deserve leave or not. It also has roof access and a side door for the commander to slip out unnoticed. Note: The roof is a prototype. We are working on a better version that will be more robust and easier to use. The AC units are also getting an overhaul.

A Note about International Shipping

International shipping is expensive. We already ship internationally for our regular orders so we are able to keep the costs down a bit. We ship first class international and generally have very few problems with it. Most issues are missed notifications from customs agencies that are resolved by a quick phone call to your local agency. We have tried to come up with a shipping plan that is economical and represents the true cost of getting the items to your door. However, we are not responsible for any duties, taxes or handling charges that are incurred when importing items into your country.

Risks and challenges

CorSec Engineering is an established company and we already have the laser cutter. This negates most of the risk but there is still a small chance that something could go sideways. This may cause delays in shipping but we are doing our best to make sure that nothing can happen. Most of the design work is already done and we are working on the production designs now.
