Secret Weapon - Tablescapes Dungeons: Mines

Recommended Posts

And now I'm envisioning some crazy dwarf riding mine carts around running over skeles.

 

"Cart inserts" sounds like a great idea! These would be like base inserts, but would be stuck into the carts:

* Crazed dwarf miner

* Crazed miner with grizzled beard

* Cart-o-skulls (doubles as a skull pile?)

* Cart-o-cadavers

* Not-Indiana Jones and company

* Nazis-inna-cart

 

I know SWM has resin skulls, corpses, etc., but I'd like to see them in plastic for base bits and, of course, stuff for mine carts to run over:

* Skulls and skull piles

* Corpses, corpse bits, and corpse piles (for Shadows of Brimstone)

* Gem and crystal clusters

* Seven unlucky dwarfs.

Thank you ReaperBryan for that succinct comparison!  I have been searching for tiles and terrain and such.  Wanting comparisons to dwarven forge especially and have not found one nearly as good as yours.  Also I think its awesome that you are consulting with another company to make the best product....I wish more companies thought that way. 

To be honest - this is Secret Weapon's project, and Secret Weapon's product. We're just helping them with the coordination and logistics, and of course with the KS itself. But really, Justin & Secret Weapon deserve ALL of the credit for the amazingness of the product!

 

So just out of curiosity, does the bones 3 mausoleum happen to line up with the tiles for this?

Does this pic help?

(The mausoleum is 4"x6", and while the buttresses overlap, it lines up nicely on the tiles.)

 

Keep in mind that mine pieces are just what they have shown so far.  If this is anything like a Bones KS (and I assume it could be given Reaper helping them out), there will be more reveals.  Maybe even other themes?  I have no inside knowledge, just thinking ahead and looking at the history of how a Bones KS has gone.  As well as recalling Bryan say that the base set will grow in size as more funding is brought in.

 

There's definitely more than one theme planned...

 

Any chance you could post a nice pic of the entrance?

Sure.

The mine theme is nice but a little too niche for my gaming needs. Now, if they happen to have a wall package I'll be in trouble. The Stones kickstarter supplied me with piles of floor tiles but no walls. I could use a ton of walls and these look like they might be somewhat compatible with Stones. That's where they'll get me. 

Oh, there's wall sets, curved wall sets, and that kind of thing... Justin has put this together to be hard to resist  ^_^

 

And although the clear tiles are tiny but thinner than the others, here's how the walls stack up against some Stones tiles:

Now, These sets are really done with a caverns/mines theme - so the walls do look a little out of place against the Interior tiled floors that I used here, but you get the idea.

 

Speaking of which, anyone on the various Deadlands RPG forums or other western games?

 

How useful would this game tile set be for the game?

 

I've already posted on the lead-adventurers West forum, and had some good feedback.

 

I think it would be pretty good for Deadlands. I can't think of a single Deadlands game I ever played that we didn't go into at least one Mine. 

 

Be sure to get copies to support painting them up as coal mines, gold mines, and Ghost Rock mines, though...

While I agree they deserve credit for the product. I don't know very many companies that would aid a competitor in anyway. That is almost unheard of. That gets respect in my book. Most companies would have stolen his ideas and upgraded their own product but you guys didn't. (I also just totally bought a bunch of stuff from them. Once I realized their Malice crypt floor were even with DF floors)

Most mini companies are pretty friendly with each other it seems to me. I know that Reaper has great relationships with DSM, RBG, Bombshell, and quite a few others. I don't find this surprising that Reaper is willing to help and lend their support to SW after seeing that a better product was available and much like their own ideas.

That's a fair statement, but to be honest we've got really good relationships with a lot of industry friends. Jim at Darksword sells his wares and is a judge at ReaperCon, and he sells our paint in his booth since we don't attend GenCon anymore. 

 

We also have other companies that we have relationships with who promote their companies at ReaperCon, or sometimes have us cast their product, etc. 

Bombshell, Frontline, Hangar18, DGS, Freebooter, Hasslefree, Victoria Miniatures, Talon Games, and probably a dozen more.

 

But we thank you very much for appreciating the extent to which we and our many friends in the industry, work together instead of viewing each other as competition and enemies. It's nice to know that you (collectively) appreciate that we all try to get along.

I'm speaking of businesses in general. Not specific to any one industry...but I have noticed it among smaller companies.

I think the reason why all these companies work so well together is that basically, they're all artists, not accountants. 

Also, most companies are small, privately owned, and doesn't have a 'Board of Drow' only looking for short-term profit.

Er, about that bit about companies not run by accountants: Reaper is run partly by a couple of accountants.  ::):

Well to be fair, they are accountants who ARE artists also.

This one will be very tempting. Hopefully I can get in on this one. Just not a good time right now for extra expenditures.

I wonder if Frank Buck/80033 ever had a Chinese orphan sidekick or traveled in the company of an singer...

SWM FB FTW :lol:

 

"Tablescapes Dungeons includes modular stair cases, and "Stackers" in multiple sizes that allow you to create multi-level dungeons with ease. There are also several bridge designs, allowing you to cross above the dungeon floor, or rain destruction down on your party from above."

      About this project
       
       
      A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. Featuring House Stark and House Lannister, the Starter Set comes with over one hundred amazing, preassembled miniatures that are ready to play out of the box! All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years.
      The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set is a perfect introduction to a new miniatures game. With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game features 5 different Game Modes, Army Building and Customization options, and choices of Commanders and Attachments. This Set packs a lot of gameplay for 2 players!

      The loyal followers of the Direwolf Banner rally to defend the North! Miniatures come unpainted. Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful  Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses.

      Attachments
      A player can also augment these units with powerful Attachments, which range from generic additions, like the Lannister Guard Captain, to legendary figures such as Ser Gregor Clegane: The Mountain.

      This Kickstarter campaign is a collaboration between legendary game designer Jennell Jaquays and sculptor Darcy Perry, following the appearance of ducks in the previous Star Hat Miniatures Kickstarter: Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III. 
      This is also an opportunity for YOU to contribute! With the Legendary Hero pledge, YOU can collaborate with us to bring new characters to the Quack Keep module and gaming table.
      The Module  
      This Kickstarter will provide funds for Quack Keep - inspired by classic game adventure modules of the past but written to be more approachable for a new generation of role-players and workable with a wide range of game rules thanks to the 5th Wall Generic Rank System. It even comes with a fold-out GM screen as a cover!
       
      The title is a nod to Quag Keep, the first novel based on a roleplaying game, published by Andre Norton in 1978 - around the same time that Jennell Jaquays began producing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Runequest modules for Judges Guild. The Caverns of Thracia and Dark Tower are both best-selling examples of her early work, both still in print after almost 40 years.  
      The later inspired Legendary Duck Tower and other Tales, which included a ducky-pastiche of her original Dark Tower cover. It was due to this and her work for Chaosium that Jennell Jaquays "was pretty much labeled as that designer and artist who did the ducks."

      Legendary Duck! YOU be the HERO! Stretch Goals
      There is a Stretch Goal unleashed for every 1k funding goal reached and each one is a game changer: a new Duck will appear! Either a new Duck Hero or Legendary Duck will be made available for you to choose as part of your pledge.
      1k Stretch Goal Unleashed: Oduck!  
      2k Stretch Goal Unleashed: The Quack Knight!  
       
       
      Glen Fidduck is almost a must-have for me ;)

      About this project
      Samples of painted resins supplied by Studio Giraldez. Resin masterclass models supplied unpainted Strap in and blast off! The Starfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a bold science-fantasy explorer, investigating the mysteries of a weird and magical universe as part of a starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Don rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you'll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or find brand new planets to explore. Whether you're making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you'll need each other.
      ADVENTURE: The Starfinder Adventure Pledge level is a great entry point for the start of your collection of Masterclass figures. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 6 Hero Slots and 4 Encounter Pack Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      CAMPAIGN: The Starfinder Campaign Pledge level is the perfect pledge for the miniature enthusiast. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 12 Hero Slots, 6 Encounter Pack Slots, 2 Fleet Pack Slots, and 4 Creature Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      Stretch Goals are items that unlock as the campaign reaches new heights. More options for heroes, encounter packs, creatures, and fleets will be revealed over time. There are three types of goals: Freebies, Optionals, and Social Media Stretch Goals.
      Freebies will be added to the Adventure Pledge and Campaign Pledge as soon as they unlock. Optionals will provide additional options to use on those Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet Slots. Social Media unlocks depend on the number of shares the following post receives on Paizo and Ninja Division’s Facebook pages.
      How the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Slot System Works
      To offer the most customizable pledge rewards possible we have developed the Kickstarter Slot System. There are 4 kinds of Slots: Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet. The Adventure and Campaign pledges come not only with specific models but several types of Slots to customize the pledge. Every item option has a Slot type and cost. Additional Slots beyond those in the Adventure and Campaign Pledge can be purchased for the cost listed in the Additional Slots section. As the campaign progresses and more stretch goals are unlocked the type of Slot and cost of each unlocked model will be listed in the appropriate section.
      Freebie Stretch goals add one free model or upgrade to the pledge. Additional models of that unlocked Freebie may be purchased as listed in the appropriate section.
      HEROES: Each Hero represents an individual pulled from the varied Starfinder races, character classes, and themes. These heroes double as playable characters and non-player characters, providing numerous options for players and gamemasters alike!
      ENCOUNTER PACK: Encounter Packs include a mix of creatures and hero-like characters that the heroes may encounter in their adventures. Each pack is designed to supply figures for a standard encounter. More ambitious adventurers may encounter larger groups so it never hurts to get multiples of each encounter pack!
