We're back and improved!!
Why we started GameTerrain
In resent years there has been a decline in available “off the shelf” terrain models for table-top games. With Warhammer recently pulling their fantasy range of buildings, it has resulted in gamers having to either build there own or buy other types of construction.
Currently there are ranges of laser cut ply models, Cardboard models or injection molded plastic models, all of which for some gamers just don’t cut it. When we spend a lot of time, money and effort on making our miniatures look great, these building models tend to let the side down. The most recent solutions include developing models that can be downloaded and 3D printed however the detail is not quite there yet and not everyone can afford a 3D printer.
For this reason, we have decided to start up Game Terrain!
What is GameTerrain.co.uk
We are using the tried and tested method of hand carving every individual detail to create realistic terrain building models. From slate effect roofing tiles to timber frame windows and doors, even building every stonework wall brick by brick. From these master models, we will create replica casts for you to paint and use.
Having produced professional gaming models for many years including one off commissioned designs, the time has now come to share a new range of “off the shelf’ products for wargamers.
We have the designs, the crafting ability and capacity to supply the products. All we need now are the tools to push forward.
Why we are using Kickstarter?
We need your help to realize our plans. Our aim is to develop a large range of quality resin buildings to allow you to create amazing table-top landscapes for Fantasy/Medieval gamers Your backing will be invested in enabling our models to go into production. Our intention is to undertake the following:
• Purchase machinery to reproduce the models quicker and with high definition of detail.
• To produce a website for GameTerrain.co.uk
• Produce product packaging
• Stock the chemicals needed to kickstart full production.
• Invest in design and development of new buildings to add to the range
What is the GameTerrain plan?
Our end game is to have a full range of 26 products, which can be used to create the ultimate fantasy town. We have plans to develop a new model every month and for it to be ready for sale at the end of each month starting in June. It’s a tall order but we are committed to creating a brand of quality products to compliment your table-top fantasy armies. These are to be packaged as an off the shelf product for distribution to war game stores throughout the UK.
As an additional development, we will be holding a poll on our website to find out what other fantasy buildings customers would like to see developed. A High Elf city, a goblin forest encampment, or maybe a dwarf forge kingdom!
Thank you in advance
Due to the amount of people asking "Do you have any other models in development we could have as rewards once complete?", we have launched The Traveler's Rest!
The Travelers Rest (Concept Drawing) The Travelers Rest (Concept Drawing) This resin model consists of two products, The Stable Block and The Wayfarers Inn. Together these two models combined measure 300x300mm and 250mm high. The master model is currently being made and we are looking for September as production for an October delivery. The 2 individual models of The Stable Block and The Wayfarers Inn will eventually be available as 2 separate products but not until this Kickstarter has completed
Due to many requests for additional models, we have decided to add some stretch goals to our already funded project. the first one kicks in at £2k. For these, if you have already committed to the "Travellers Rest' or "The Lot!" rewards, you can leave the postal as UK (which is free) for the additional stretch goal item and we will cover the cost to anywhere in the world.
To clarify, if you have already pledge over £30 for rewards, just add an additional £24 to your pledge for the Stretch goal 1. I will email you to confirm that you will be sent the additional model

Im also getting a lot of requests to confirm the models come unpainted and if they are hollow inside, which both are true. Just to highlight this, here is an image of a hollow unpainted prototype which highlights these two points
Risks and challenges
Potential pit-falls, they are few. When you have a finished product that just needs reproducing, the only slip may be the time frame on the rewards if the project is over funded, that aside we are ready to get cracking!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
