Maki games: modular terrain
have a clear vision and want to share it with all of you: to create
highly detailed, high quality plastic terrain for all your favourite miniature games.
We designed a modular terrain system that will not require glue to be assembled. We want to be able to assemble our modular scenery differently every time we play.

Each component will be cast in high quality hard injection molding plastic with a thickness of half centimeter. We want them to be durable and strong, but also easier than resin scenery to convert. Each component will be cast in high quality hard injection molding plastic with a thickness of half centimeter. We want them to be durable and strong, but also easier than resin scenery to convert .
Here are 2 resin copies of our prototypes.
But one single element is not enough for your gaming table. We have accessories to customize your makitainers, like stairs and balconies to create buildings and cities.
We want to bring to your homes and clubs high quality scenery to boost your gaming experience and for this we need your help! This is only the first theme of our science fiction line and we have already paid for the expensive steel mold necessary to produce it.
Our production line is ready to start but we need your help to cover the production costs of the additional steel molds for accessories and new themes, while we cover the costs of design, development and packaging. The 3D designs for the first 3 themes with accessories are nearly finished and for several additional themes and accessories we already have the concept art.
Risks and challenges
Having established our mold production to a third-party there are some minimal potential challenges related to delivery..
Minor delays can occur due to factors not under our control such as shipping companies and customs for non Eu countries. We are doing our best to minimize the chance of problems and delays as much as possible.
The steps we have taken to prevent such delays are the following:
1) we have already printed the first of our CAD designs and made resin copies of it. These will be shown during the kickstarted to evaluate size, design and strength of our products. It also helped us to make sure the 3d designs were ready for industrial production.
2) we have chosen to initiate our production in a factory with whom we already did business in the past. We had several options but we have chosen one of the most expensive because of our successful previous collaboration and to minimize the risk of delays.
3) we have already paid for the tooling of the steel mold that includes our first theme! We have pictures that will be shown in the KS. This mold will be ready in a few days, and we should get the first test plastic prints while the KS is live.
4) we have already completed the CAD files for the first two themes of our terrain elements and at least another theme will be completed in the next few days, giving us enough room to complete a few more themes during the kickstarter.
Considering the above factors, delays or issues should be very limited if none. We spent several months planning this KS and looked at many variables and possible problems, taking corrective or proactive actions when required.
The biggest challenge is in the number of themes we might unlock during the kickstarter and the delivery time for some of the additional themes resulting from the stretch goals.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
