  1. Thanks Darsc! My apologies.
  2. I appreciate it Talae! If it helps, the Pre-Order Store will go live this coming weekend until the 31st of Dec. However when we go to retail, you'll be able to buy each piece individually, so atleast there's that! I'd like to see people pickup this terrain, kind of like how we purchase minis! At least that's the goal. I'll be sure to post a link here to the Pre-Order Store for anyone who may be interested!
  3. They will be available until the molds are spent or they turn up in another KS down the line! I'll squeeze every last good piece of resin out of them though.
  4. lol. What if I ask real nice like ? LOL
  5. Can we get a funded banner for this post since that happened on Day One! I just wanted to share some more sweet images with you folks. This is TerraScapes with another modular 2D Terrain System, Terratiles. Checkout this layout! Less than 5 days to get a pledge in!!! Stop by and check it out!

  6. I guess I should have pointed that out! Thanks! I've been getting a lot of people saying it's too expensive. I'm like, "well yeah, they are big resin pieces lol." I'd like to do a comparison, displacement test at some point to see just how much more or less expensive these are than other Terrain on the market. After fulfillment, these pieces will loose the KS discount, but I will be selling them individually on my online store and conventions. That way a person can pick up one or two pieces at a time. None of this, "I have to throw a paycheck at this!?" nonsense lol. I'd like these to bought like we do minis. A piece here, a piece there... Thanks for your support m8! Hopefully we can meet again next year when I release Cliffs & Crags!!! Do you feel the pics do this terrain justice? To me, there ain't nothing like seeing it in person...

    I know this was going to be a big issue, if not the only real issue. I'm a huge fan of grids myself. I can honestly say though that it is easy to see the grid where there is none. I've done plenty of playtesting on these and the only time I needed a grid was for spellcasting. I opted to use a string that I made into a ruler to remedy the situation. Let me ask you this though. What if I were to add some notions of a grid with some rocks and cracks. The nonlinear nature of the tiles would make the grid appear a little convoluted, with each having its own grid space. These tiles don't fit together in a rigid linear manner. They are placed on top of and next to in any angle or manner. You would have the grid of 1 tile overlapping or at a different orientation to another. Would this still be a happy median? Would you be more likely to back this project with any hint of a grid? In other news, I made a video of the above photo shoot. check it out!

    Mashaaf on TerraScapes. Need I say more? p.s we still aren't funded :( TerraScapes: Caves & Grottos, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1816594163/terrascapes-caves-and-grottos

    As a way to encourage shares I started a contest on my studio's Facebook page. I'll be giving away 3 sets of Terra Tiles Misty Moorlands and Coasts and Rivers! Here's the link to the post for the details. I hope this is OK to share here :) https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1384279624952927&id=653104084737155 Here's some pics of TerraScapes and Terra Tiles hanging out with one another!

    I appreciate the support! I know it was risky to launch sandwiched between DF and Bones 4. If I get squashed by a house with chicken legs in the Doomish Dungeon, I will relaunch. Don't get me wrong. I'm gonna work my butt off every day to see this project funded this campaign . However you may yet have a chance to pledge your support. Until then, Share share share! There are other ways to support the project!!!

    Thanks for all the comments! It's true that Terra Tiles and TerraScapes are not made by the same people. However the kind folks over at RAINN Studios have been mentoring me through this difficult process of launching this Kickstarter! A while back I did supply some miniatures for promo pics for one of their projects. They are same ones I'm using for mine! So I can see who one could be confused lol. I've decided though that I will be giving away some Terra Tiles during the campaign to help spread the word. I'll make a mention of that later when I got the details finalized. As far as the ungridded space goes, I recently responded to another about that issue with this remark: "Thanks for the inquiry. I knew this was going to be a big issue for a lot of people. I don't have any plans to modify them at this point. I too play an rpg that is highly tactical and distances are really very important. When I designed these tiles, I made sure to keep the dimensions of the flat open areas easily measurable by the eye. Most of the spaces are some multiple of a square inch actually. The bottoms of the tiles are even easier to guestimate with its stony pattern. When play testing the tiles I was surprised to find how easy it was to figure distance for simple things like moving. The base of the miniatures provide most of what you need to measure your characters steps. The only issue I really had was with spellcasting. To solve that problem, I took a string and put a green mark every inch, and a red mark every 5 inches. I know that's not ideal to do but it worked! Thanks for the kind words about TerraScapes over look though! They really are a different bird altogether lol. Nothing quite like them out there. I plan on doing a live stream of one of our sessions during the campaign. I think if you watch you'll see the un-gridded space isn't as big a issue as it seems to be. lol hell even I was surprised lol. -David the MG"
