About this project

Wondering what this campaign is about? It's about Micro Art Studio's great Tabletop Battlefields!

Some players lack time to create a nice-looking gaming board. Unfortunately sometimes it ends up with playing on random, clumsy terrain - this is where we step in to change it!

We created unique sets by mixing a bit of our current products with some new, superb releases! We give you battlefields of the highest quality, where you will fight the most epic battles!

Game-ready tabletop board scenery sets are a totally new idea - containing thematical terrain and a playmat available at a decent price!

The scenery is made of special polyurethane foam which is well known for its durability. It is easy to glue with cyanoacrylate adhesive and can be primed & painted with almost any coating.

Products we create are up to date with current rules of different wargames, therefore playing on them feels natural and easy-going. We are wargamers ourselves, so don't hesitate and put your trust in us!

Shipping rates

Keep in mind that pledge values do not include shipping costs. They will have to be added in the pledge manager after the campaign is finished.

Your shipping will never be more expenive than $60 USD ($30 USD for EU), no matter what you choose or what your location is. All packages will be tracked and we take full responsibility for their delivery.

So what caused this to need to be relaunched anyway?

I think $80 seems to be a little out there for a printed mat; I may pick and choose a few add-ons.

$80 for a printed neoprene mat is pretty in-line with most manufacturers.  A bit cheaper, actually, probably reflecting Kickstarter pricing.

Really? Wow, I guess I'm a little out of the loop...

The size of the mat was surprising to me: 48 x 72 inches. I never played Warhammer, more used to 48x48 from Warmachine. Way too big for any use I'd have, on top of the sticker shock, but clearly I'm not the target audience either. Just feel like a modular cardstock or foamcore mounted board of 6x6 sections would give better longterm use and be a lot more cost effective.

I have a 3'x3' mat and a 4'x4' mat from different manufacturers.  The neoprene mats offer a lot of benefits, but they do have some of the downsides you mention.  The major benefit is a soft surface that is excellent for rolling dice and softening the blow when models inevitably tip over.  It's also easier to pick up cards than from a simple flat surface.  Other benefits include durability, professional finish and transportability.  Downsides are that you only have 2 or 4 possible configurations (though most mats don't contain any actual terrain features), and that storage is "long and skinny" instead of "boxy."  And price, but it's a bit unfair to compare price vs DIY tables.

      Currently on Kickstarter for the next two days!

      I got in on the original release of this game and it is very cool. It's like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure board game. It is loosely scenario based, but there is a fair amount of randomness and replay-ability in each scenario. I have played the first scenario four times and have yet to win, but had an entirely different experience each time. The most interesting thing to me is the action/health/timing mechanic. There is a serious economy of action in the game and if you aren't very careful with your choices, you will definiltey die on the continent.
       
      Sadly, the production costs on the game are astronomical. At over 1,600 cards, they have said that they will likely never make it to full retail, so apart from this KS and potentially further private sale, we may never see it again. This KS is running until Thu, October 19 2017.

      I'm not familiar with this company, and this project is a relaunching of a previously aborted kickstarter, but I thought the ideas for ship and the trees looked particularly interesting.

      About this project
      The Third Android Collective.
      Welcome to the launch of The Third Android Collective.
      This campaign, if successful, will see the expansion of the Androids and Robots range of miniatures produced by Blind Beggar Miniatures,
      This Third Collective of Androids will see the extension of the 'Andy' Series, with a new selection of models which fulfil even more roles in society.
       The 'Andy' Series
      The 'Andy' Series are based on an original design first conceived and created by Andym Industries (the MK1).
      This original design was later acquired by the BB Corporation where further research and development saw this pattern evolve into a range of models with differing specifications.
      There are currently thirteen different models in production in the 'Andy' Series, This campaign will, hopefully, see the introduction of several more.
       The New Models
      The new models that the BB Corporation would like to put into production are shown here:
       
      Please note that the MK 14 is a two-part miniature.
      The First and Second Collective miniatures..
      Here are the miniatures from the First and Second Collective campaigns.
      The Original Android Collective, featuring Mk's 1-7,
       The Second Android Collective, featuring Mk's 8-13 (and also includes 'Barker', the Android dog, not pictured).
       
      The Pledge Levels.
      Take a look at the Pledge Levels on the right to see the options available for acquiring some 'Andy's of your own. You will also find the option of getting hold of some of the earlier models from the previous campaigns.

       The Wretched Hive
      In The Wretched Hive we delve into the sinister underworld that exists on the fringes of society.
      The iguan are a ubiquitous reptilian race whose myths claim a primordial origin predating all human civilization. The pragmatic iguan do not build cities of their own, but rather opt to live in nomadic groups operating with a network of semi-permanent encampments on the outskirts of large cities. Traveling bands will meet to trade with the settled iguan, who in turn offer goods and services to the wider markets. 
      Due to their peculiar psychology many iguan find full integration into civilized life distasteful and traditionally work as laborers and sailors. They never shy from dangerous work, and take special pride in their ability to endure. Despite the obvious value of strong workers, the complex cruelty of civilization has branded the iguan as the lowest class. Merchants gain hordes of wealth while the workers struggle to survive. 
      In the absence of true justice, following the law is a luxury few can afford. Thus we enter the vile black markets of the Wretched Hive. Where cruelty is the law and only the strong survive. 
      The slave trade is perhaps the most depraved of the black market practices. The legality of slavery may vary from kingdom to kingdom, but legal status only truly changes how public the slave auctions are. 
      The Iguan Slavers are powerful fighters and bitter task masters.These depraved individuals offer harsh motivation to their comrades in brutal fashion. Slavers are rightly feared for the sinister depths of their inhumanity.
