About

This is our second Kickstarter which continues on from the ground-breaking magnetic tabletop building system for 28mm figures. Made of durable, highly detailed, precise laser cut MDF, grey board and 3D printed elements, all buildings come ready to use, no glue required. THIS IS STILL NOT A KIT! 

The high level of finish shown in the images below is exactly how you will receive your buildings (figures not included).

This unique system for 28mm tabletop games and RPG's uses strong earth magnets to attach the building exteriors (skins) to a base box.

Construction could not be simpler! The magnetic system means the buildings can be easily and quickly assembled, disassembled and reassembled over and over in various combinations.

Base box, skins, snap together

 Not only can you change skins to create different building combinations from within a range, you can also select skins from other ranges depending on the game or period you wish to play. This cross-game terrain system means you can build a desert sci-fi town one evening, then a fantasy village for wargaming the next, just by changing the skins on the base box.  

Desert to Fantasy

All skins are pre-assembled and designed to flat-pack away. This makes transportation much easier and considerably cuts down on storage needed, keeping everyone happy.

What's more, your base box can be used as storage for your figures and other gaming elements, such as dice and tokens.

Base box storage

Using your imagination you can use the base boxes in many other ways. Here is an example of them being used for a dungeon crawl.

Our new range of Fantasy and Sci-Fi buildings has been inspired by previous backers feedback and our initial successful Kickstarter.

While still reining Nick in as much as possible - as he wanted to expand beyond the town into further realms (wait till you see the map!) - we have completed all the designs, testing and development for the Series Two buildings. We are now ready for production!

We need your help to raise the funds to get manufacturing underway. With this we'll be able to purchase materials and fabricate our Fantasy and Sci-Fi Series Two range. Any additional funds will be put towards developing further designs.

We initially met at the 1066 Wargaming Club, Hastings in 2013. We found that together with sharing a fanatical love of gaming, we were all frustrated with the existing MDF building terrain:

  • it takes far too long to build
  • it is fiddly to paint
  • it needs loads of storage

So, after a night of gaming and spending the usual half hour packing away broken pieces of terrain, we got chatting. By the early hours of the morning we had the seed of an idea. Six months later and drawing from 60 odd years of experience in tabletop, board gaming, design and architecture, we had our first building and a simple system that dealt with these issues.

We figured that others may have similar frustrations and might be interested in our designs – Series One Kickstarter was born!

 Following a successful Kickstarter we know we are on to something here.

  • We can't do it without you. The realities of manufacturing mean that without you we won't be able to bring this project to life.
  • We're small fry in a big pond.
  • Our previous backers feedback has been invaluable. We'd love your views and interests to guide our next phase.
  • Save us from wasted lives and broken dreams. 

Thanks to our amazing backers, Series One was successfully funded through Kickstarter in May 2018.

Series One in action at our local 1066 Wargaming Club.

We will charge shipping once the campaign is over. We want to strike a good balance between value for our backers while ensuring high quality and fair shipping prices. We have based our estimated costs using the prices from Royal Mail and Games Quest (our previous distributor) but once we are ready to ship we will review quotes to get the best deal for our backers. As a guide to costs, we have included weights for all pledges. Games Quest, for example, ships a single standard fantasy building (roughly 260g) second class for £6.00 to the UK and £12.00 to the USA approximately (these include all packaging and signed and tracked delivery). Keep in mind that costs may vary based on weight increases from any add-ons you may choose (dare we mention Brexit). Take a look here to get a rough guide to costings via Royal Mail.

Please send us a comment if you would like any further details about shipping. Of course we will always be happy to give you an estimate.

We will be using the BackerKit Pledge Manager to fulfill our orders. We will send our backers the pledge manager after the Kickstarter ends. You then use the pledge manager to choose your add-ons and to give us your shipping details. 

 Thank you for visiting our campaign!

We value your feedback and support and would love to hear from you. Drop us a line at info@thelodestone.co.uk or connect with us on

Risks and challenges

Our first Kickstarter taught us that campaigns can often throw up challenges and unexpected issues no matter how meticulous the planning. Open communication with backers is of upmost importance and we are committed to being honest, upfront and professional should any problems or delays occur.

We have done our best to mitigate any risks and challenges and have carefully prepared for any potential delays. We have drawn up a realistic and generous timeline and have partnered with experienced and reliable teams.

With our ability to move straight into production, our combined project, business and finance experience and the contingencies in place, we think we are hitting our second Kickstarter in pretty good shape.

We are ready and good-to-go!
