Cities, castles, and fortresses are some of the main areas an adventurer is sure to encounter during an adventure. Now with your help, we can bring these modular tiles into life, and you will be able to build any areas by using them in no time!

 

These sets include many double-sided, amazingly detailed 6x6 inch sized tiles in both physical and digital formats, and will provide you a more thrilling gaming experience while you are sitting around a table or having fun online with your friend.

Play a more atmospheric game 

 

The areas are on double-sided tiles with seamless borders that make it possible to mix them with each other. Furthermore, the cut-out doors, wall and corner pieces (where these are available) will provide you more modularity and freedom. If you are the type who likes the wonderful and breathtaking visual worlds of movies and games, then you can relive them on your gaming nights sitting around a table in your home (or online) with your friends.

Features of the digital version:

  • More than 300 tiles (150 different area + their alternate version)
  • Easy to print PDF files, print out as many tiles as you need for your game! You’ll get them in 300 dpi, high-quality format
  • Small printer-friendly draft tiles to help you plan your areas 
  • JPG files that you can use in online Virtual Tabletop programs 

 

Features of the printed card-tile version:

  • Double sided and UV coated durable tiles with the night version on their other sides where it is suitable. If that has no sense (because it is an underground or inside area), the other side of the tile will contain the empty un-furnished version 
  • A total of 150 modular gaming tiles which you can use for many adventures
  • You can draw on them with wet-erase markers
  • Cut-out elements like doors and gates 
  • Scenic, lovingly crafted graphics that your gamers will love for sure and will make your gaming nights more thrilling

  • Portable sets you can easily take with you anywhere
  • And you can spend more time with the adventure and NPCs instead of seeking new maps to the different adventures
     

+ Free unlocked stretch goal extras to extend these core sets

For me, Antal/Black Scroll's artwork is one of the best out there.

 

Thank you! I'm glad you like our products and artwork! - Antal K.


Update:

We have already unlocked +5 tiles to the core sets (2 are based on backer's suggestions). 
The next goal will be +30 Moat tiles that our digital-copy backers will get for free.

While I'm tempted, all I want are the city tiles.  I think I'll have to wait for the retail launch.

 

Thanks for considering joining us! We are thinking on to add the possibility of individual core sets and other add-ons.
 The reason why we did not do that is that it is almost impossible to manage the shipping fee with the randomly selected add-ons on Kickstarter and we have to make it clear to our backers if we do. But there will be a pledge manager for backers and it will make these things easier. For now, you can select the Watcher pledge level and you'll be able to add individual products to your pledge after the campaign.

Thank you! Yes, we will attach all the tiles as JPGs in the digital version that you can use with VTTs to make quick maps (in those that can handle tiles, Roll20 can.)

      Surprised I did not see this mentioned yet.
       
       
      So my question here once people look at it is this really worth it?  The cost seems high given you can get Rosemary & Co or other company Kolinsky brushes far cheaper.  What makes these worth the extra cost?  I know you get the brush soap (which I would think most of us have already) and a nice case (not really needed perhaps).  But seems like $65ish with shipping for 4 brushes seems high.

      About this project
      Designed by Archon Studio, creators of League of Ancient Defenders and Vanguard of Warcomes Empire of Men - a miniature line of 28mm scale set in dark future, where World War I still rages on.
      War that should have ended long time ago
      Our miniatures are based on various military designs from World War I and II eras, with obvious dark sci-fi twist added to it. Divided into two factions, they are more closer to it's historical sources or more imaginative on the other hand.
       
      Heavy boots, thick leather coats and gas masks worn by everyone - that's The Great Empire in the nutshell. What they are lacking in physicality, they will compensate in calibers and amount of shots per minute. As World War One rages on mostly on their lands, toxic warfare resulted in whole zones being inhabited by mutated people, who eventually serve as Ubermans. Nothing is wasted in Military Industrial Complex of Great Empire.
       
      Inhuman sleekness, terrifying effectiveness and cold calculation are Echelon Dominion's traits. After mandatory "Echelon Civilian Enhancement" government programs, can no longer considered as "human". This is not a decision taken solely by The Great Empire, but also by the Echelon, who see human equating to weakness. Where other forces deploy heavy infantry, The Echelon deploy Constructs. Where other forces face fear and suffering, they welcome challenge and seek to prove themselves. Their purpose is unknown as they don’t fight solely for the purpose of land, honor or survival but whatever their plan is it will end current era for mankind for sure.
      How the models are built
      All models from "Empire of Men" line are multipart and 28mm scaled. You can see overview of sizes below:
       
      Also - if you have backed any of the previous Archon's campaigns, you can compare sizes of Empire of Men models with VoW and LOAD miniatures as well.

      About
      Over the last two years Halfsies Dice have taken the dice market by storm in the form of 7-die RPG sets, but up until this time there has been no option available for Halfsies Dice in bulk.  In fact, to date, Kickstarter has never had any campaign for dedicated bulk dice sets ...and frankly, it's eaten away at us this whole time.
      "What about Fireball!?", I think. 
      "What about Warhammer!?", I think. 
      Well, the time has come to appease the fist, and fill it with the heaviest, densest, and most well balanced resin dice on the planet!
      Time for some serious dice chucking!
       
      This campaign is unique and special in the following ways:  
      This is a Kickstarter-exclusive product.  You won't be finding these at your FLGS post-campaign. Production stock is limited.  Pledge early to claim the sets you want before we run out. You'll "Pledge" and fill out the "Pledge Manager" (PM) in the same day.  Pledges are final at time of submission and can't be altered. Best of all: Rewards ship in under a month.  Shipping: April 2018 ...guaranteed!
