I love the idea of this. Will probably back if the price is right and development finished.

I don't play games, but if this is not too expensive this might be awesome for taking pics.

Undead/Jungle settings misty surroundings..

I'm getting ideas here.

 

And while the two lovebirds above are bickering which one will back, I will keep an eye on this.

I do take into consideration though that in garden centres one can buy small mist generators too.

Price comparision will be done.

I wonder what tech they use; vaporisation of glycerine mix, or atomization of mineral oil?

 

Won't a smoke generator for model trains do the same job?

The images they have been showing look great. 

 

It looks like low-lying fog, not like rising smoke from a model train generator.

Probably an atomizer, otherwise the fog would rise rather than slide along the ground.  So, this is a project you could build yourself for around $15.  Small plastic jar, an ultrasonic atomizer from ebay, a little bit of tubing, and some hirst arts or Dwarven Forge walls to pretty it up.  Or just paint the whole thing black and call it a day.  A $5 atomizer will give you enough fog for a small table using plain hot water, no need to buy fog juice or dry ice.

 

Obviously these ones are going to look better, and likely work more efficiently than a home-brew project.  It does look like they pump out quite a bit of fog, so if you have a big table it'll probably give you better coverage than a cheap atomizer.  Also it's got the nice pre-sculpted terrain pieces that fit in with Dwarven Forge tiles, so you wouldn't have the hassle of making that up for yourself.

 

For me, price point for this is about $30.  If that's where it's at, I could see myself picking one up.  Otherwise I'll pass.

 

Edit:  Eek, $80 for the basic model.  Going to have to pass on this one.

Wouldn't you prefer water anyway to avoid gunking up your terrain & minis with glycerin or oil or whatever else was used? (I've never used one so I don't know how much condenses.)

I know on my fog machine (its one of the one's from spencer's gifts) that anything about a foot in front of the machine can and will get some of that residue from the fog juice. That's why its recommended for outdoor use only:)

 

And it's 9:08 AM PST, is this still going live?

Hmm. Can't find any indication that this had gone live.

I was bored so did a search and found this on their facebook page:

 

UPDATE: Resetting Fog Machine project to optimal Kickstarter time. Tuesday August 1st 1 PM EST

After some in depth research with Kickstarter data today we have decided to set the project date as above. This is due to starting and ending times being optimal to the success of the project.

We are re-sending email notifications to update. Though we are as anxious as you to get going in the end we believe this will create the best opportunity for buyers around the world as well as last minute buyers which seems to be crucial in many projects as you can see in the chart below.

We hope you all will understand and bear with us as we do everything in our power to make this project a success 1f642.png:)

All the best from us here at RGFX

Hmm, August 1st, coincidence?

Not sure that I like the idea of my game table being all wet from water...or even worse - covered in a residue of some sort. The effect looks cool, but I will want assurances that it is actually practical.

Hem... that looks like the standard DF sewer wall that has a hole in it already that can be left open as in the pic, filled with a grate piece, or a filler piece.

 

I'm of similar opinion to Talae... Freaking cool looking effects for picture taking, but I'm not sure I'd want my stuff getting damp over a night of gaming or even worse having a chemical film deposited on everything at the table.

 

Watching...

Dry ice is made of sublimated CO2, which means it won't leave residue on anything. (You're exhaling it right now.)

 

You can buy it, or even make it, although it's not safe to touch without protective gloves, since you can get frostbite.

      Swarming out from several enormous dimensional Rifts, a horde of giant invaders, so different in shapes and sizes that they couldn’t belong to the same species, had apparently decided the time had come to bring Humankind to extinction. They got damn close to it too! Two years went by after the first invasion, years in which two thirds of the Earth’s population was wiped out. In order to survive, every single nation left aside any ideal of independence and united under the flag of the Earth Federation, dividing cities into Metropoleis and Refuges and attempting any possible strategy to stay alive…
       
      War Titans: Invaders Must Die, actually tells us a story deeply rooted in a distant period preceding the birth of our Sun, thus revolutionizing the Darwinian concept of human evolution. Our tale makes us discover the Shik’har, a magnificent race of space warriors. For an incredibly long time, the Shik’hars have fought triumphantly against any single species, creature concealing the seeds of evil, and has banished them one by one inside inaccessible dimensional prisons.

      Our tables will be made available at a discounted rate beginning August 24th during our Kickstarter Campaign.
       
       
      Play.. Your Way
      Intelligent design and community feedback have created not just a game table, but a gaming system that adapts to your needs and style of play.
      - Select from two table sizes. We offer both 3'x5' or 4'x6' gaming surfaces.
      - Next select from a variety of colors and finishes. Natural birch, Storm Grey and Pitch Black are your first choices.
      - Now pick out your modular deco to customize your look. Dragons? Skulls? Celtic Knots? And you can change it up in the future also. Pick out a second design theme and change the table when you change your game. We also offer custom designs just for you, including personalization.
      - Finally, choose from a wide variety of play enhancing accessories. Cupholders, dice towers, DM screens, Hellbox towers of storage, card organizers, full table covers and pull out desk features are all available to you. 
       

       
       
      Can Your Game Table Do This?
      Need even more flexibility? Have a gaming store or club that needs more sq footage of play space? No problem.
      Our tables are modular so you can combine them together to create the size and shape that you desire. 
      The opportunity does not end when you buy your first table from us. It only begins.
      Unmatched modularity and flexibility guarantee you will never outgrow this rare gaming system.
      Create the layout of your dreams. Our tables can contain and manage any world you can dream up. 
       

       
      We will offer two size tables to start with. The first has a 3'x5' playing surface and measures 3'9"x5'9" overall. The second has a 4'x6' playing surface and is 4'9"x6'9" overall. Height is table height. Both sizes are fully modular so you can buy more than one table and create many larger table shapes and designs.
      Some small special parts may be required for certain ambitions table combinations. Please check with us if you have certain configuration needs for joining multiple tables so we can take care of you.
      In the near future options will be available to convert to bar height or coffee table height. 
       
      All of our products are designed on computers and cut by robotic CNC. Then the parts are hand finished. They are designed to ship flat-pack to you for affordability. Assembly is required and we strive to keep that as simple as possible. Many things are pre-assembled for you. The primary material we use is renewable, very dense European birch plywood. The short growing season of our birch trees ensures a very dense and hard grain. Perfect for long life and a quality experience for you and your friends. We use natural finishes and water based paints. The playmats are custom made and similar to a mouse pad. They can be removed if desired to reveal a beautiful solid surface beneath.
