Stronghold on the Borderlands
My concept is centered on creating a fort that would exist as a garrison or trading station in a borderland fantasy setting. The idea is developed around the notion of a timber fort being hastily constructed on part/on top of an older ruined stone fortification. I pursued this half-and- half concept so that the fort might also be applicable as a tribal center for barbarian and goblinoid cultures.

Where Things are at....
I Opened this kickstarter as a resin cast project with a small digital download component. Public response dictated that I needed the opposite approach. In response, I expand digital product lines and vastly reduced resin cast potentials. Since launch I have added 3 buildings to the initial download reward and I have added 14 models to the digital stretch goal offering.
The basic digital download files will give you the ability to create a fort entirely of stone or wood or mixed.
Make sure you scroll down and check out our digital stretch goals!
Small Fort version A Reward Scale in MM $90
Medium Fort Reward Scale in MM $115
Large Fort Reward Scale in MM $150/$170/$220
Design and Manufacture
The initial design and construction of this fort uses both 3d Printing and hand sculpted methods. All silicon rubber molds are properly degassed and manufacture will involve pressure casting plastic resin to 50lbs. I will use smooth cast 300 from smooth-on. It is a well known plastic resin and very friendly to modelers who want to make hand modifications to the pieces.
Packaging and Shipping
Your structure will arrive in the box that is featured in the image below regardless of what size fort you order,
This box will also contain all pieces related to Stretch Goal Awards, Add-ons, and Digital Designs on USB. There will not be any additional packing support in the box but All products will be wrapped in 1/4 inch cell bubble wrap. All orders will be shipped in a USPS medium flat rate 2-3 day Priority or international priority. Unless requested otherwise, all domestic products will ship with signature confirmation.
Stretch Goal Awards
There are two sets of stretch goal awards. One is specific to resin cast rewards, the other is for digital designs that can be printed. The digital stretch goals will involve a small amount of assembly for removable roofs, functioning doors and other features.
The stretch goal awards for resin involve small stone ruins, The sum of all awards should give you enough pieces to imply a foundation of a ruined building. The ruined stair design is the correct height for use with the walls of the main fortification. The finished models will not vary significantly from the dimensions shown here but details will be enhanced and tweaked.
Our add on options will feature two resin Items. The first is extra wall sections. This will be most useful to people who order the large size fort but really want a huge fort! Our second add-on is a tower that is designed to be placed on a straight section of wall. The lower tower will have slightly flattened sidewalls for this purpose and will therefore be slightly different than the corner towers. This add-on will be useful for folks who order either the large or medium size build. The last add-on option is simply a combination of the first two and can be doubled for $120.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADD-ON ORDERS
Click the “manage your pledge” button on the project's page. Increase your pledge by the amount needed to claim the add-on(s). Save your pledge. Do not change the tier that you originally pledged at.

Free Give Away
Providing that minimum funding goals are met, I will be giving away one copy of the large build (reward 6/10). To enter the drawing, repost/retweet/recycle this kickstarter on a social media page with a link back to here. Then email me a path to that repost/retweet/recycle at firstname.lastname@example.org. At the end of the fundraiser I will make list and roll the dice to see who wins. Please feel free to use the placarde below if you are interested.
What will I do with profits?
Depending on success, a portion of profits will be spent on developing more structures consistent with this product and equipment like a high speed resin printer, computers, software, and casting equipment.
Risks and challenges
This project has been developed off and on for over a year. The images seen here are of resin cast pieces. There are a couple pieces I may tweek a bit before making my production molds but otherwise the project is essentially finished. Production will begin before the funding period ends if goals are met early. Additionally, I have extensive experience with customer service and shipping from running a OOP gaming resale business for several years. I am a sole proprietor, risk for this project are essentially non-existent aside from a catastrophic life event.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
