I saw this on Facebook. Secret Weapon said that the cart is functional. This is probably going to hurt my wallet...

Yes, but to be clear - the cart wheels don't move, it is merely designed to fit the track and sit upon it wherever you put it - the tracks are engineered to be uniform. So you can scoot the cart, but it won't roll at all, especially not in-game when you don't want it to.

Thanks!

 

They also said that it is built in multiples of 1"...which I assume will mean that it should end up being compatible with Dwarven Forge, Stones, and the other terrain out there already.

 

I wonder what pledge level costs will be like...

Long have longed for something like this. Don't even want to think about what it'll cost me, though.

Yes. Very similar to the Dwarvenite tiles in feel.

Here's a quick shot of the Unpainted samples I have in my office next to some of my DF tiles.

A little birdie tells me that the Core Set box is going to be cheaper than a Bones Core Set Box.

 

You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you for the comparison shot. 

 

My wallet is doomed.

I wonder how long it takes before someone modifies the cart so that it actually rolls along the tracks...

But... what about the add-ons? It's not the Bones core sets that kill anyone's budget...

      About this project
      The aim of this project is to produce a new Science Fiction range of 28mm white metal miniatures for collectors and for use in rpg and tabletop wargames.
      The figures have been sculpted by Igor Karpov, known for his work on the Ratnik/Lead Adventure Dwarves, Bruegelburg, Post-Apocalyptic and previous Astropolis ranges.
      On its endless journey through the heavens, the good ship Astropolis has picked up more than its fair share of new crew and passengers. Long gone are the days when Terrans made up the majority of shipdwellers, and by and large the coming and going of human peoples and alien folk has been peaceful and profitable.
      The increasing level of decay and entropy, though, means that times are getting tough, and the ship has little time for idleness. In the vast caverns of the mass decks, a thriving culture of barter trade and transport has developed, where ship-board product like hydroponic food is offered next to off-ship imports brought aboard by regular and occasional visitors.
      Some alien species have become ubiquitous, whereas others are only encountered from time to time, as their ships put down in the busy docking bay areas to unload cargo and passengers from systems nearby. Some alien species have become ubiquitous, whereas others are only encountered from time to time, as their ships put down in the busy docking bay areas to unload cargo and passengers from systems nearby. 
      Spare parts in particular are a prime commodity, and the more technologically-inclined visitors can make a good living by providing the nuts and bolts to keep another vital system running. In a similar vein, raw materials for the production processes and a variety of fuels, from hydrogen to power cores crafted from exotic minerals are always in high demand.
      It is probably inevitable that the hardships of this environment and the innate nature of many creatures, be it Terrans or Galacticans, lead to disputes and sometimes open conflict. For this reasons, adventurous individuals who make a living as bodyguards or “troubleshooters” will easily find employ with on-board and off-ship traders looking to protect their commercial interests, or to safeguard one of the many communities which have sprung up in Astropolis’ underbelly.
      AstroSec Marshal (Kickstarter Exclusive)
      When the Astropolis was designed, it was figured that internal security was necessary for the endured well-being of the ship and its passengers. Hence, a Security Corps, dubbed AstroSec was created and tasked with police and legal matters. Centuries later, AstroSec has become more flexible in their organization due to the vast areas to be supervised with little manpower, and in many cases, solitary Marshals uphold the law and act as arbitrators for local disputes.
      Kickstarter Exclusive AstroSec Marshal A route through the stars
      Lord Navigator and Navigation Processor
      Generally-speaking, the Astropolis follows a Long Plan devised many centuries ago prior to the launch of the ship. The design of the cosmic engines only allows for minor alterations, with course changes being measured in months rather than minutes. Still, it is necessary to approach systems as the ship comes close to replenish stocks and conduct trade, and these changes are the task of the Lord Navigator. Using innate psychic abilities, they plot courses for years and decades to come, always in close cooperation with the Chief Quartermaster; the actual calculations are performed by the cyborgs called “Navigation Processors”, who meld the intuitive factors of the human mind with the raw computing power of nanoquant calculating engines. 
      Set 001 - A route through the stars Datakeeper and Libraribots
      When an unexpected radiation blast from a nearby quasar erased a portion of the Astropolis’ Data Banks, the ship’s command echelon implemented a programme to store critical information in non-electronic ways, thus reviving the ancient art of book-making. Assisted by specialist Libraribots and using a vast variety of synthetic and organic media onto which information is transferred for future generations, the Datakeepers work tirelessly to print hardcopy of the existing exabytes of information and preserve them in deep-freeze vacuum chambers tapping into space itself.
      Set 002 - Datakeeper and Libraribots A snack before the journey?
      Travelling Workman and Soydog Vendor
      Given the increasing difficulty of procuring spares and energy for non-essential systems, it follows that said systems slip lower and lower down the maintenance plans. Those skilled to do repairs often have to travel long distances by improvised transport or on foot, but anywhere they go, they’ll surely find a gaggle of small-scale entrepreneurs looking to sell them foodstuffs and more. 
      Set 003 - A snack before the journey? To scrounge and procure
      Salvage Crew
      From time to time, the Astropolis comes across the wrecks of other ships. Always desperate for spares, the ailing ship sends forth crews of hardened prospectors and engineers to seek out useful items and components to adapt to the needs of the good ship. Clad in hardsuits, they venture where few dare.

      That company is quite busy on Kickstarter, always nice miniatures with a certain character. The idea of getting one miniature in standing and "sleeping" / "dead" position is unique I think ... though I don't know if it's useful. On the other hand, a couple of sleeping halflings might go well with my hafling village ...
