Background

This project came about when my local gaming club was struggling for storage space. Wargames buildings take up a massive amount of space, but tend to be empty inside. So I set about making some that would fold away for easy storage. Successive improvements resulted in buildings that are hard wearing and simple to build. Two  years after they were designed many of the original buildings are still used everyday at the local store.

'Village set' two Size 5 Brick sets and two Size 5 Rendered sets on a 3'x4' table
The same 'Village set' folded for storage

Our five initial ranges are:

  • Brick - Victorian residential and industrial buildings from the 19th century onward
  • Rendered - European style buildings from the 18th century to the modern day
  • Timber Framed - late Medieval style buildings
  • Sci-fi Gothic - Ruined buildings in a heroic scale
  • Fantasy Ruins - Medieval ruins in a heroic scale

Each of these ranges have sets of different sizes and more variations will be added to each range when we hit our stretch goals. Some of these stretch goals, like the stables, garages and shops are almost ready to go into production. Others have been planned out, but not tested. Should the kickstarter go well we intend to add some additional ranges, such as ACW/Old West and Urban America. When these look viable we will ask our backers what range they want to see next.

Risks and challenges

We have three successful Kickstarters under our belt, and this time round all the basic designs have been completed.
Stretch goal items will follow the same basic design principles, and we will be limiting the stretch goals to those that we can achieve within the set time frame.
We intend our official public release to be at the Beachhead Wargames show, and will ensure that all pledges are in the post before public release.
During the Kickstarter we will be completing many of the stretch goal designs.
November will be spent refining the designs, and creating easy to follow instructions.
December will be production.
January will be for packaging and shipping.
Should there be excessive demand we will consider adding extra lasers cutters to our workshop in order to complete fulfilment on time.
