Magnetronic Terrain from Miniature Forge uses a unique moulding and casting process to imbed powerful neodymium magnets into high quality resin terrain. The parts snap together with a satisfying clunk, allowing you to form cinematic tactical terrain for your miniature games without worrying about glue, lost magnets, or reversed polarities. 

Our first offering is the 'Battlefield' range, suitable for sci-fi and modern-era tabletop miniature games. This range features: reinforced walls, gates, towers, and an expandable bunker system, all of which can be built in a variety of ways each time you use them.

The terrain is fun to put together, beautiful to look at, and wont break your bank balance.

Here is a quick look around the contents of our 'Checkpoint' pledge, which measures over a metre across:

The starting point for the Battlefield range of Magnetronic Terrain is our walls. Like the majority of the range, the walls snap together allowing easy construction of you tabletop battlefield. With a mixture of straight sections, corners, gates, and end pieces, it is possible to construct enclosed compounds and perimeters for your games. 

Our Integrated Guard Towers and Bunkers are also compatible with the walls, further increasing the available options for your tabletop skirmishes. All terrain is suited for 28-32mm scales, making it compatible with the vast majority of mainstream tabletop war-games:

Miniature used in above example is of a typical 28-32mm scale, standing 35mm high and mounted to a 3mm tall base.

We have organised the Magnetronic Battlefield range into a range of pledge tiers and add-ons to allow you to build your collection easily. Start with one of our pledge tiers and then add in extra packs as needed to create a terrain set that meets your needs.

In addition to the pledge tiers above, our 'Support!' tier allows you to pledge as little as just £1 in order to follow along with the campaign updates and access the pledge manager after the campaign, where you will be able to upgrade that pledge to a higher tier if you so wish. The 'Support!' tier should also be used if you only wish to purchase items from the add-ons section below, increasing your £1 pledge by the value of the add-ons you have selected.

We have arranged this kickstarter into packs that will allow you to generate a variety of walls, bunkers and fortified positions. Simply mix and match the packs to achieve the terrain you need.

If you wish to add any of the following packs to your pledge, simply increase your pledge amount by the pack price(s) shown below. You will be able to confirm your selections in the pledge manager following the campaign.

I’m John Braisby, owner of Cromarty Forge Ltd. I’m a freelance miniature sculptor living in Aberdeen, Scotland. I have been a digital sculptor for over seven years, and have worked with multiple companies to make their dreams of miniature warfare domination into realities. 

The Magnetronic Terrain range, which we are kicking off with the 'Battlefield' range presented here, started as an experiment on how to imbed a magnet into a cast part. Anyone who has struggled with magnetising miniatures, only to get wrong polarities, misalignment, or magnet-pop-outs, will understand the benefit of moving the magnetisation onto the casting side of the process. Once I came up with a prototype system, I reached out to Mark Rapson at Word Forge Games to develop the product.

Together we formed Miniature Forge to bring that product to you. The Magnetronic range combines detailed sculpts, a unique manufacturing processes, and years of casting experience, to bring you a product that is a joy to use.

The 'Battlefield' range presented here is our starting point. We already have plans for additional terrain settings, as well as expansions to this line. 

Thanks so much for checking out this campaign!

John & the Miniature Forge team.

  •  US/CA: up to 2kg = £12  /  over 2kg = £17
  •  Rest of the world: up to 2kg = £15  /  over 2kg = £25

Ah, stretch goals, my old nemesis! Magnetronic Terrain has been through a great deal of development to bring it to the stage it is currently at. We want to reward our backers for bringing this product range to life, and have done this by offering these items at the most competitive value we can.

We have all backed campaigns that have a gigantic list of stretch goals that unlock themselves every time the funding total goes up by 17p, but in order to maintain a fair price to the backer and prevent the campaign costs, logistics and fulfilment time being increased dramatically, we have decided against using stretch goals on this campaign. The product quality is already as high as we can make it and the cost associated with adding usable items make them unsuitable for use as stretch goals.

Risks and challenges

Miniature Forge is a new partnership between Cromarty Forge and Word Forge Games. Between both companies we have vast experience in sculpting and design of models and terrain, high quality resin casting, and fulfilling Kickstarters. While issues can always arise, the team behind this project is very experienced and committed to delivering the best possible products and service.
