Spartan Scenics is an established range of wargames terrain from Spartan Games, built from highly detailed, easy to assemble precision cut MDF and acrylic, and supported by boxed sets of stunningly detailed resin accessories - all designed to maximise your gaming experience.

But our designers wanted more, they wanted to create a 'one design fits all' solution for tabletop gaming scenery. The idea was a lofty one: a solution that could grow with a gamer's needs (and budgets) and be flexible enough to meet their changing gaming needs! So having set ourselves this target we went about designing the nirvana of modular terrain systems.

Adding a simple second level, with some acrylic floors...
Adding a simple second level, with some acrylic floors...

This Kickstarter is to fund the latest innovation by Spartan Games and is:

  • Scale - the project starts at 28mm scale, but will grow to embrace any scale we want!
  • High quality - as you have come to expect from Spartan Games.
  • Flexible - designed to be built both vertically and horizontally, allowing you to build rooms, corridors and towers. You will also be able to create bridges between floors, towers, mezzanines and balconies. Use your imagination to also make arches, windows and doorways.
  • Requires no glue - components fit together using universal push-fit connectors.
  • Plastic - start building your terrain with highly-durable plastic components.
  • Printed card - start your terrain with stunningly detailed, double-sided card inserts to build your floors, walls and doors. The vertical supports make it easy for you to switch the card over, allowing multiple themes to be supported by a common set of modular building components. Initial themes include Fantasy, Sci-Fi and World War II, but many more can be unlocked.
  • Resin, acrylic and more - once the foundations have been set the future of your scenery is very exciting: it has resin walls, floors and doors in it, along with coloured acrylic and laser-etched MDF. This terrain is designed to embrace all formats. So start with our stunning card solution before planning just how 'deluxe' you will go!
  • Scenic Dressing Kits - will allow you to take your designs to an even greater level of detail as you add beds, tables, machinery, book cases, computers, traps and much more...
  • Easily stored - the system is 100% modular. So you can take it apart, easily store it and put it together, potentially reconfigured for a new genre or scale, whenever you want.
Building standalone complexes is quick and easy. Again we use acrylic, this time for walls...

Just to give you an idea of what you get and the degree of flexibility this terrain provides, let's take a look at some example layouts.

Founded in 2008, Spartan Games is still a relatively young company with a small and ambitious design team. In the last few years we've brought two unique and imaginative worlds to life with popular games such as Dystopian Wars, Dystopian Legions, Firestorm Armada and Firestorm Planetfall, and this is keeping our core team busy.

We have also launched the exciting Spartan Scenics range of wargaming terrain, and it was during this time we came up with our concept for a truly modular terrain system that was flexible enough to meet the needs of gamers, and also further enhance our existing game systems.

Our team is highly creative and have so many ideas they would like to see come to life, so rather than this innovative idea sliding to the back of our design queue we are looking to funding through Kickstarter to give Spartan Games the opportunity to produce even more of the products our customers ask for at the quality they have come to expect from us.

Find out about the design process, interviews with the team and more by clicking the Update tab at the top of this page. Additionally, be sure to check out the Spartan Games blog, 'Like' us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. You can also join the discussion in the Spartan Games Community and subscribe to our newsletter.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge this project will face is making it as flexible as possible. We have a fantastic team of product designers and a highly skilled production department. They will bring all their skills to design and manufacture a product range that is not only high quality, but also offers unrivaled versatility. Great design ideas in print and high quality manufacturing in a variety of materials can give you more potential with one set of terrain than you ever thought possible.

Through the years Spartan Games has maintained a reputation in the industry for very high quality models. Indeed, this is the core principle that drives everything we do. As a trusted tabletop games manufacturer, we have the experience to design and produce this terrain on time and at the level of quality gamers have come to expect from Spartan Games.
