About this project

 

 This is the promethium rig.  A huge promethium platform for extracting  promethium from planets. This huge model measures 52x52x52 cm and is my largest single building to date. This would make an amazing center piece to any table in a hobby room or club. It adds almost 4 square feet of extra playable area to a table and that's only counting the top. There are Also 8 platforms attached to the legs with 4 walkways connecting them.

The top has three separate rooms with plenty of space, they are on two different levels, they have loads of windows and walkways for moving around and shooting through. 8 ladders are included for moving from level to level.

 

 

 

This is a Kickstarter exclusive, available only until the end of this Kickstarter.

This huge kit includes everything needed. The chimneys can be placed anywhere and have optional details for the base.

The rooms all have sliding doors you can open and close any time. This can allow for some great game play using special rules such as the doors are open for one turn then closed for one turn or you need to locate a switch to open them all. This could be great for assault style games. It also includes a set of 16 shutter and grates to cover windows that you do not want in play.

.

All the roofs are removable along with the 4 walkways. This allows access to all the rooms when needed allowing them to become part of the gaming area.

The base is made from 4 strong and sturdy legs with removable walkways between them. The platforms on each leg can be linked onto several of the buildings in the main campaign, The smoke stacks, The quad silo and the Fuel dump. The weight of the top is transferred directly down the large tubes into the table top making it very sturdy and reliable.

Access to the top is achieved via 2 service lifts in 2 of the legs there are also two ladder access point from the legs as well, you can also drop troops off via aerial transport.

Each room is filled with prop pieces and can be either sparsely or densely populated. It comes with 1 generator, 2 weapons lockers, a set of beds and a set of desks totaling 18 different pieces.

This first 120 will be guaranteed deliver before Christmas when backed on its own. Drop me a message if you want other items with it to find out if this would still be available. The wave two pledges will be shipped once the other pledges for the rig have been shipped, earlier backers on this level have a higher chance of getting the rig around Christmas.

The top is removable and once the walkways between the legs are removed the entire building can be packed away into a storage box.

 

The promethium rig can be pledged for separately by using its own pledge, there are some early birds available too for this kit. You may also add it to your existing pledge for £60. Uk backers do not need to add any extra shipping but overseas backers will need to add an extra £10 due to the weight and size of this kit.

The promethium rig cannot be taken as a building choice on a package and must be added on separate or pledged for separately.

Main campaign below

 

I already sell a range of buildings that feature tubes and these are some of my most popular items. The downside to these existing building designs is that they require Pringle tubes sourced by the customer.

I have wanted to expand this line for quite some time but did not want to continue to rely on the use of Pringle tubes. I want to switch to a more reliable source of tubes that will also allow multiple sizes to be used in the buildings to provide more variety. These new buildings are a product of these development ideas, with the majority of the new buildings using at least one size of card tube in the design. A major improvement with this range of new buildings is that this time the tubes will be provided as part of the building kits. They all share a common design theme allowing any and all of them to look at home when placed together on a table top. I have also included a high level of detail on these buildings.

The aim of this Kickstarter is to raise the funds to order a large supply of the card tubes. For economic reasons, these need to be ordered in from overseas. The shipping fees and import add a considerable amount onto the price, however these costs will be defrayed on a large order, improving the value for the money. Offering these buildings initially as a Kickstarter allows a large order base to be developed to provide the best economics. Therefore, ordering in a large amount allows me to price my buildings at a very fair price for the level of detail, size and quality that you will receive.

The majority of these building include my standard LED lighting system in red, blue or green. This time the lighting is optional, the buildings have been designed to hide the LEDS and holes for the builds, so if the buildings do not have the lights in place you cannot see the LED fixtures. This is a significant improvement over my first Kickstarter designs where the lights were placed on the outside of the building and needed covers to direct the light and hide the fixtures. The battery cases are held in place inside the building using high quality branded Velcro. Each set of lights require 2xAA batteries and I recommend Duracell or a similar high quality branded battery. If you do not wish to have the lighting kits you will be able to opt out of them after the Kickstarter on your questionnaire.

Another aim of this Kickstarter is to increase my range of buildings with internal access for game play. To this end I have designed many of the buildings with removable roofs, please note not all of the buildings have this feature. Like the lighting I have designed this feature to be optional. The buildings with the feature will come with it as standard but you will be able to glue the roof in place if desired. If you intend to make use of this feature combined with the lighting you will have to neatly arrange the wires inside of the buildings so you can have hassle free access to the inside. This is straight forward as the wires are easy to manipulate and glue in place.

These buildings are designed for 28mm wargames. They are also suitable as building kits for display and hobbyists.

Picture of scale

 

 

 

I recommend building these with PVA glue for the wood sections and tubes and Superglue with activator for the wires and bulbs.

This Kickstarter has a large range of buildings ranging from simple to complex. To help with your selection I have added a difficulty key. This is found at the bottom of the image of each building. The key works on a 1-5 scale with 1 being a simple straight forward build and 5 being complex and intricate build. Complexity is decided by amount of parts, size and how involved / detailed the construction is. The more complex kits will be supported by instructions with more detail and explanation included with the kit.

All kits are provided with printed instructions which will consist of text and photos of each of the stages throughout the build process. Where needed for clarity they will also include line drawings of the stages and parts needed.

These kits vary in time needed to construct from approximately 4 of hours for a smaller simpler building up to a day of continuous effort. As some of the gluing will be with PVA, there will be times when the building needs to be left to stand whilst the glue sets. The time needed is reflected in the difficulty key, therefore expect a 1 rated building to take 3-5 hours to construct and a 5 rated building 18-24 hours.

 

 

I have completed two successful Kickstarter projects to date and both have been completed on time with no delays and no major problems. This shows that I am able to complete these projects reliably and to the high standard which I expect from myself and my products. These projects were the “Integrated Building” project and the “Maze of the Dead” project. Both of these previous Kickstarter projects were huge undertakings and both were significantly different. These projects have really helped me to learn to manage my time and balance it between different aspects such as generating instructions, production and packing. Managing the funds and procurement of the raw materials and overall project management were other areas that were developed during these first two Kickstarter projects.

At the start of this Kickstarter I have amassed a huge war chest of buildings having started to cut and store building 5 months ago. Currently I am sitting on 900 buildings (20 of each design). The MDF parts of these buildings are ready, they just need the tubes and lights.

 

For backing a single building use one of the two single building pledges priced at £20 or £24.

For backing multiple buildings you can pick from several different sized pledges. The bundles price all buildings at £20 then apply a discount according to the size of that bundle.

Stretch goals and add-on items cannot be taken as a building choice in a bundle and must be pledged separately.

You may pick the same building up to three times.

1 building £20/£24 + shipping.

2 buildings £40 (£20.00 per building) + shipping.

3 buildings £55 (£19.30 per building) + shipping.

5 buildings £95 (£19.00 per building) + shipping.

10 buildings £190 £19.00 per building) + shipping to UK reduced by £5 and international shipping reduced by £10.

12 buildings £220 (£18.50 per building) + shipping to UK reduced by £5 and international shipping reduced by £10.

15 buildings £270 (£18.00 per building) + shipping to UK reduced by £5 and international shipping reduced by £10.

20 buildings £350 (£17.50 per building) + free shipping to UK and international shipping reduced by £15.

25 buildings £435 (£17.40 per building) + free shipping to UK and international shipping reduced by £15.

30 buildings £520 (£17.33 per building) + free shipping to UK and international shipping reduced by £15.

35 buildings £603 (£17.22 per building) + free shipping to UK and international shipping reduced by £20.

40 buildings £684  (£17.10 per building) + free shipping to UK and international shipping reduced by £20.

45 buildings £765  (£17.00 per building) + free shipping to UK and international shipping reduced by £25.

Reduced shipping, this means you will pay less shipping than it will actually cost me to send the pledge to you.

To add stretch goals or add-ons increase your pledge by the amount stated.

Surcharges. Some areas require a remote surcharge, these tend to be areas that do not have a local delivery depot. Where this happens the extra surcharge will need to be paid before the pledge is shipped. If the shipping address allows I will try and use a different courier to avoid this as not all couriers have the same surcharge areas and rates. However, sometimes this is unavoidable.

Price after Kickstarter. The price of the buildings can be found below, next to each individual building.

There are 45 buildings in this campaign split in to 3 main categories. Commercial, Industrial and Military, buildings are put in to these categories based on the theme of the building. There is also a 4th sub category called the Expedition buildings. This is a small set that features Commercial, Industrial and Military buildings but with a slightly different aesthetic to the overall design that runs through all of the buildings in this group.

All of the buildings are shown below, split into the three main categories. You may pick any of the buildings if you are taking one of the bundle pledges or if taking just a single building pledge please use the correct one of the two options.

The promethium rig can be pledged for separately by using its won pledge, there are some early birds available too for this kit. You may also add it to your existing pledge for £60. Uk backer do not need to add any extra shipping but overseas backs will need to add an extra £10 due to the weight and size of this kit.

The promethium rig cannot be taken as a building choose on a package and must be added on separate or pledged for separately

Risks and challenges

Completion
There are no risks to the completion of the project other than a small risk of a delayed completion due to sub-supplier deliveries. The machines, expertise and everything needed to produce this project are in place except the tubes and lights. These need to be ordered in from overseas. Everything else such as boxes, printers and so on is in place.

Delays
Delays are the only risk due to the need to order in raw materials. I have put an 8 month fulfilment for this project. 8 months represents the longest wait that any individual should experience for dispatch of the completed kits. Demand may affect the fulfilment and any delays from manufacturers. As I have completed two previous Kickstarter projects without delays, I am confident this one will run as smooth and be delivered on time.
