What a clever Idea. I really liked how the handles overlap. ::):

Just relaunched the Kickstarter today. Check it out. This is the last time though. We have had other version of these for awhile but these are to restock and get the new Clear ones. I say this so that everyone knows that this is not a high risk purchase. We will get them manufactured and though we cannot guarantee the date of delivery we expect we should be reasonably close based on previous production runs.

Do you have a realistic estimate for how much it might cost to ship 3 x-cases (X-case oddity level) to the US?

Ken with ActiveMindsGames is local to me and let me check out a couple of the current run of the solid color styles this last week. These things are pretty awesome. I really want to see these in an all clear style. I'm looking forward to using these on my bookshelf as displays for my Malifaux crews between games. When it's time to play, I can just grab the cases I want, snap them together and go. With the magnetic bases, I have no worries using them for transport. Having light come in from all angles will make these stand out for display units.

 

These things really need to be produced in clear. There's about a week left on the campaign now. Ken has upped the ante on getting these produced, and the first 150 backers that go in for $40 pledges will receive two free original opaque units added to their pledge. (There were about 80 openings last I checked.) I'll probably use my opaque units to carry paints. 39 Reaper/Vallejo/Scale75 dropper bottles fit nicely into the case.

That would be very tempting if Ken would answer shipping cost questions and actually had a $40 pledge level. It's troubling that he's only made one comment in this KS and seems to be ignoring the questions that his few backers have been asking. 

 

These cases would be useful to me, but every time I check the KS I see more unanswered questions and think, no way.

He could have spelled that out better, but the limit would be met either by pledging for 4 or more plain cases, or three cases with the magnetic inserts. He probably should have just said "Pledge for 4 or more cases..."

 

He does call out that the US shipping will be at least $1.50 per unit. A cost range here would have been nice to see, but I get why what appears to be a one-man shop wouldn't have accurate numbers for all shipping options.

        Game Decor has partnered with a very talented 3D artist under the banner of “DungeonWorks” and has lauched a Kickstarter for a new line of high resolution 3D printer files for modular dungeons and accessories. There are currently 3 lines of models with a total of 7 uniquely themed dungeons containing over 400 models planned for release. The first line consists of locations of classic encounters, such as the gothic stone dungeon, the dank caverns, and the half timbered town, all of which is easily compatible among the majority of fantasy settings. The second line is inspired by iconic computer based dungeon crawling role playing games where legendary settings are yours to design. The third line is driven by a high fantasy setting with tales of epic proportions. Several more themes and expansions for each line are planned to be released afterwards.
       
      We are live now on Kickstarter

      A little info about the 3 lines

      “Classic Encounters” includes all your generic, classic settings. Basic dungeon, taverns, caves, city streets.

      “Vintage Vault” is about recreating those classic video games and even board games. Everything in the game is recreated here in tile form. Relive the adventures of old or create new ones.

      “Lost Realms” are deluxe sets. They're created just like a D&D module. There is an adventure theme already set out for a DM to build upon. So, these sets are heavily themed for instant adventuring.

      One thing unique about my series is that all the dungeons come with a detailed center piece entrance to really set the mood for a might adventure.

      I'd really like some feedback on what players and DMs would like to see. I've been in the RPG hobby since childhood and created a lot of this from a players perspective. I have around 200 free rewards to give out during the KS, but I'd really like to hear from you for more ideas.

      Please note, these are NOT Openlock models. This project has been in the works for more than a year, well before openlock was even released.

      Comet Lord Miniatures is making it's first series of monstrous miniatures for your tabletop games.
      The Eye Sovereign that views beholders as mere slaves to carry out its ill will? A mimic able to disguise itself as a regular sized chest as it waits to burst out and devour an unlucky adventurer whole?
      Comet Lord Miniatures is seeking to fund the production of its first line of miniatures through this Kickstarter campaign.
      This campaign will start with 2 miniatures including 'The Giant Mimic' and 'The Eye Sovereign'. Hopefully we'll expand this into a full series of miniatures through some stretch goals!
      All miniatures require assembly and will be shipped unpainted.

      Each of the miniatures will be made from high quality resin. The core miniatures for this campaign are both 'large sized' creatures and they are compatible with most 28mm scale tabletop map products. Turntable renders of the core miniatures

      BASE SYSTEM ROOTS 
      When I moved from hex map to miniature rules gaming, I struggled to find any decent affordable scenery. 
      Thus I decided to make some myself. These were sold online under the name of Mechanized Designworks. I found many other people liked them. 
      This led to my decision to make an entire range accessible to the public through DFA, in the form of the BASE System. With your support DFA intends to create the largest range of affordable, high quality modular 6mm scale scenery and buildings. With your continued support, the range has scope to expand indefinitely.
      BASE System sections will be made from 3D printed design originals. Each section will be individually hand-finished before casting in resin, creating a high-quality finish suitable for your choice of model paint. 
      BASE SYSTEM CORE  
       BASE Systems are modular.  
      Example BASE System layout with stand-alone buildings There are many buildings, from stand-alone structures and themed sets, to totally modular sets that allow players to build a base as big or small as they wish. A host of new building designs and base layouts can be created by simply repositioning individual sections; while the same parts can be endlessly reconfigured to provide new vistas for each game.  
       
       
      If you're looking to build a small outpost or firebase or a big planetary command centre for your games, BASE has you covered. Best of all: because BASE System is modular, you can take it apart and redesign it when setting up your next game.  
      Infinite possibilities and configurations await with BASE.
      Example of a large BASE system layout using modular parts BASE SYSTEM VISUAL  
      BASE offers a uniform look and feel across sets in the range. 
      While each module in a set is interchangeable, it will still conform to the overall chosen appearance of your tabletop. In addition, you can make sets look entirely different, yet cohesive, with a few additional components in different paint livery.
      EVOLVING YOUR BASE SYSTEM  
      Start small and go large … or start big.  
      Example of a small BASE System layout The choice is yours. The BASE System is available in box sets and individual components. You can evolve your BASE System at your own speed by adding components or sets as and when it suits you. (To help get you started with this, you will also receive two of some buildings at specific pledge levels.)
      Fire Control and HQ buildings  
      The Repair Bay contains 2 rigs, allowing you to switch between closed and open during your games.  
      The Geodesic Dome will feature a clear resin casting,allowing you to create features inside the structure.  
      The Class A Interstellar Communications set is just the first modular BASE system we hope to produce.

      You asked, we provide.
      After the undreamed-of success of our first campaign, The Path of Osiris : Egyptian Dungeon Game Tiles, many asked for more pieces, more designs - and even the 3D-printer files themselves.
      We still have our sights on a new environment for Spring 2018, but due to popular demand, we had to revisit Egypt with many new pieces and a brand new expansion : « The path of Osiris : The Tomb Entrance. » Like the first kickstarter project, these will be available in our personal recipe of very durable sandstone with a perfected time-worn look.
      We have ideas for many pieces and it can be very costly to mass produce them all, that’s why we are now offering the complete collection The Path of Osiris in 3D file format ready to print yourself. That way, you can print all the parts you need from home. 3D printers now go for less than 250$. Our most tech-savvy backers should be primed to take full advantage of this since printing a tile can cost only a quarter or two !
      Options, options, options. Once again, you may order them hand-painted for a genuine Egyptian dungeon feel. Those of you who want more of the original tileset in hand-crafted sandstone, you got it. The full package, new and old tilesets, painted or not, anything goes. Just see the options and we'll set you right up.
      *I will be constantly working on new models throughout the whole campaign; please come back frequently to see new pictures or renders.*
      Planned Stretch Goals (3D files) :
      3K - Free SG : Obelisk Free SG : Corner Sarcophagus Free-SG : Floor trap door Free-SG : Corner Sarcophagus 2 *Upgrade : Magnetic ready tiles - 3D files* Free-SG : Large winged scarab 4x4 floor tile Free-SG : Egyptian Brasier Free-SG : Throne Free-SG : Large 5x5 Pyramid Free-SG : 4x4 Sand tile ... want more ?
