About


A brand new project by wargame-model-mods to bring life to the tabletop, introducing a range of programmable buildings.

This is my fifth and most audacious project to date. It combines laser cut  kits with 3D printed mechanisms and electronics to make unique kits that will bring the RTS game feel to the table top.

The base range consists of 15 buildings with a variety of different mechanisms and movement patterns. Each kit is preprogramed but these can be modified, added to or changed entirely by you. 

The project also hosts the huge Kickstarter exclusive Rotary miner.

Everything is included in each kit to make the building, including the board, motors, wires, screw connection blocks, LEDS and the 3D printed parts. 

Goals

The aim of the project is to raise enough money to invest in several 3D printers to print the parts for this Kickstarter and bulk purchase the electronics needed to offer these products.

Each of the new buildings is powered by this small board.

The board is premade and does not need to be assembled. No soldering is required for these kits, everything is connected using screw style terminal blocks.

Programming chip

The board runs using a Picaxe processor. Each board comes preprogramed for its specific building, however using a USB programming cable (not supplied) the programming can be altered or completely replaced

No programming knowledge is needed to do this, the chips can use a simple flowchart style instruction sheet to control the building.

The program used to do this is found on the Picaxe website along with the require usb cable and instructions on using both the chip and program.

Each kit needs 3x AA batteries to work.

This huge kit is the rotary bucket miner, this massive kit can fill a good portion of a table by itself and offers a large amount of play area for games. 

There are two versions of this kit, one with all the electronics required for it to move  and a version with out these parts for manual movement, all of the parts will still rotate by hand

The miner can move backwards and forwards on four indavidually powered tracks, the upper section rotates left and right and the bucket rotates. 

The miner is controlled with two small switches that control the motion, the bucket head is always on or off. These switches are mounted on a small handheld remote, the batteries for the tracking and left / right motion are also kept in this remote.

The miner measures a massive 490mm tall by 1000mm long by 380mm wide. It can be disassembled for easier storage, the following sections are removable, Arms and bucket, towers, and the entire top section which lifts free from the base and tracks.

The miner is very robust using several construction techniques such as double bases and internal lattices.

The upper sections are accessed by ladders on the towers, the top most room features three access door each of which can by opened and closed. 

This kits needs 7 AA batteries.

You may take one of the building pledges and add the Rotary miner to the pledge by increasing the amount you pledge.

For the basic miner with no electronics add £70 extra to the pledge.

For the Rotary miner with electronics add £95 extra to the pledge.

Please note if you add a rotary miner to a pledge that is being shipped out of the uk please add a further £10 to cover the extra cost in shipping.



 The complete building measures in at 50x50 and is 63 cms tall including the crane.

The buildings have removable rooves to allow internal access. The doors can be opened and closed at will. The four bridges are removable allowing you to choose the access routes around the platform.

The mining drill can be seen here. It is detachable for easy storage. The bridges between the legs are also removable, and the entire top platform lifts free to allow the legs to be stored in less space.

Two legs have an ore output which deposits straight into a cart. These rail systems can be connected to the ore separator using an addon which will be added below.

 The other two legs have water intake valves. These can be connected to the pump house building using an addon below which again will be added later.

Risks and challenges

There are very few risks to this projects. i am established and have run several kickstarters before.

The main concern would be to the timeline as i have to order in a lot of different components for these kits. This presents a risk if one of these companies delivers their product late it could result in delays
