Thank YOU!
Thank YOU!

Cracked Earth Studios terrain is hand-cast and made of the finest artist’s resin. Each piece is imaginatively designed, fully assembled, expertly hand-painted, and shipped right to your door so you can put it into the heat of battle right out of the box. Perfect for the gamer who wants to be able to wage war as soon as you have finished painting your army. Why squander game play opportunities spending time painting the required terrain when we have done it for you?  

Our terrain not only complements your nicely painted armies as they wage war but also helps in creating the larger worlds that we as gamers escape to. The small team at Cracked Earth Studios wants to provide the tabletop gaming community with affordable high quality terrain collections that are shipped straight to your door already assembled and painted to the highest of standards. And no two pieces are exactly alike!

Award winning tabletop gamer and product developer, Jace Gostisha saw the frustrations of his gaming buddies who built and painted really cool armies only to run out of steam when it came time to assemble, prime, and paint the needed terrain. They would look at his painted terrain and want to know how they could get some of their own.  

Jace saw a need for creatively designed, fully assembled, and expertly painted terrain that just wasn't available. He wanted to change that - the result is the custom-designed gaming terrain and accessories of Cracked Earth Studios, made for gamers of every level who want to enhance their own game-playing experience. If you’ve been relying on Tissue Box Tower and Soda Can Castle as the setting for your games, you’re missing out, plain and simple. Jace has created incredibly imaginative structures that fit seamlessly into the prevailing themes of the most popular 25 mm-35mm scaled games. The limits are only those of your imagination. 

We think our terrain is wickedly awesome. Here are some reasons why we think you’ll love it too:

  • Scale: The terrain is built to fit seamlessly with the most popular 25mm -35mm games.
  • Creativity: While the paint scheme fits a broad range of games, each structure also incorporates the look and feel of Cracked Earth.  Designed with such attention to detail, it looks as if this terrain has survived many-a-battle. If only these buildings could talk!
  • Exclusive Peg system: Each one offers an interchangeable peg built into the designs. An ingeniously simple system allows you to remove key pieces of the structures and place them on another building changing the look from steampunk, to fantasy, to medieval (and more!) in an instant.
  • Sturdy but lightweight: These structures are built to stay standing no matter what rough and tumble battle occurs, but they're lightweight. It must be magic!
  • Durability: Each one is handcrafted with the finest artist’s resin and is designed to withstand the heat of battle.
  • Protective Storage: Each piece will be shipped to you in its own protective reusable container so it will arrive safely at your door. 
  • Manufacturer know-how: With a skilled product developer and two business minded folks we have the expertise and knowledge to get this project done!

The costs of production are expensive and while we think our product is absolutely legendary we wanted to make sure we had proof of concept and enough interest before we invested a bunch of money in inventory. 

Risks and challenges

Jace has created resin architectural sculptures at his day job for the past 9 years. This has given him the opportunity to develop strong relationships with manufacturers. We know they can help us produce quality products in an acceptable time frame. While we cannot control everything like labor strikes, material shortages, and weather delays that impact shipping, these are not typical.
