Board Gaming Table: Beast Meets Beauty

Recommended Posts

 

About

I have been a gamer my entire life. Early in 2017, I decided to take my years of manufacturing and construction experience and build myself a gaming table.  

I wanted something sturdy, something that I could see myself passing to my children someday. A table dedicated to gaming at night and yet able to be a beautiful piece of dining room furniture the rest of the time.  

My first gaming session with my friends ended with two of them asking how quickly they could have their own and how much it would cost. That got the wheels rolling. Two months later, I showed the tables to a large group at Grand-Con. Several hundred positive comments later and here we are.

It's a pity that if you want one built you must be in the United States..  Most other gaming tables are available internationally from the vendors. 

 

Neat looking table in sizes that not all of the others offer.

I'm guessing they are just not ready to handle International shipping.. I'd guess they will have to eventually.  Per usual, the size I like does not come in the style I'd like.  (Pub table size, Kitchen table height)

Cool, but 1) moneys, 2) space, 3) I liked the ones I saw at ComicCon a bit more, and most importantly... 4) I'm saving up for a table made of orbicular granite.

      About
      Dear Friends
      Welcome to starbowl for fantasy football game
      Starbowl for fantasy football is a project that began more than 5 years ago with the idea of expanding the fantasy football world with new possibilities adapting the current teams inspired by the Tolkien universe with new races adding more range of miniatures and characters.
      The creators and developers of this project are passionate lovers of fantasy football for many years and with starbowl we only seek to expand the current Multiverse of Fantasy Football with new teams that we consider can be very interesting and funny to play for face against the current teams on the field
      We hope you like and enjoy this project so you can decide to support us, we invite you to join so that the project can finally be financed (really this would be a great motivation for we can continue developing in the future more teams for starbowl )
      this campaign presents from 2 to 3 teams to be adapted to the skills of the Chaos, ratmen , and chaos dwarf teams.
      So we start by presenting:
      Stuntytroopers Team  as Chaos dwarf team
      Basically it's a Chaos Dwarf team consisting of 16 players and 1 Big Guy ,these would be :
      6 stuntytroopers , 2 centaurs , 8 Hobdroidlings and Mino AT as Big guy
       Stuntytroopers /Chaos dwarf  Mino AT Big Guy
       Alternative starplayers
      alternative starplayers for starbowl these are: Dwarf with chainsaw, Dwarf champion, dwarf with bazooka
      The Brood Team
      For this team, 21 miniatures  have been sculpted, combining the positionals (20 players and 1 Big guy ) .These can be used as skaven team or as Chaos team.
      Brood Team as ratmen version
      as skaven team these would be:
      2 throwers ,2 Blitzers ,4 catcher/runners ,8 linemans and Big Guy
      Brood Team as Chaos version
      as Chaos team version these would be:
      4 hunt warriors ,12 brood beastmen and 1 Big Guy *(as chaos team all broods are considered as positional beastmen )
      The Big Guy for Brood Team (ratmen or Chaos version)
       Blockdice and D6
      for starbowl fantasy Football for now 5 different sets of dice have been designed, these would be :
       Dice for Tronik team
       Dice for Razor Team
       Dice for Chaos team
       Dice for Brood Team
      each set of dice is composed of 3 blockdice (symbols) and 2 D6 (numbers)

      We are launching a new campaign to produce a new range of 28mm Fantasy Conquistador miniatures and their adversaries, suitable for Wargaming and RPGs. These brave or foolhardy individuals are on an ambitious quest to discover the mythical land of Mictland with it's untold treasures and fabled key to the secrets of life and Death. The expedition may get some important lessons on the arcane mysteries sooner than they think! The denizens of this strange new world may present some horrifying challenges and A terrifying Lich is master of the unfortunate souls who perished on previous doomed expeditions. We will have a range of pledges to suit all budgets, with add ons and un-locks. The campaign will run for 30 days. Look out for the Launch on Friday !

      About
      THE AXOLOTL DECK The Axolotl Playing Cards are a project created to help support the axolotl conservation efforts in México by spreading knowledge about this amazing creature through the art contained in these playing cards.
      AXOLOTL The Axolotl is famous and beloved, a celebrity among amphibians. Named after an Aztec god and the inspiration for a Pokemon, it can heal itself better than Wolverine from the X-Men, even regrowing lost limbs. 
      In nature, the Axolotl is in peril. It is native only to Lake Xochimilco, a UNESCO World Heritage site outside Mexico City.
      In 2006, the species was declared critically endangered due to habitat degradation and the pervasiveness of invasive fish in the lake. In 2009, experts estimated that the axolotl population had fallen 90 percent in the past four years, a decline further exacerbated by urbanization. In 2015, scientists briefly believed that the critter might have gone fully extinctin the wild—only to find one a few weeks later.
      This little guy its been in danger for a long while now and needs our support to survive.
      If this project gets funded, We will be able to donate 100% of all profits produced from the decks of cards that remain after the campaign.
      Donations will be focused on different conservation efforts projects that will help restore the axolotl, like donating to Units for Environmental Management (better known as UMAs in México) which are special spaces dedicated to the breeding of axolotls and Various projectsdedicated to restore the natural environment of the Axolotl in Xochimilco.
      THE AXOLOTL DECK  Axolotl Playing Cards
      56 cards! (52 cards + 1 joker + 1 thank you card + 2 educational cards about the axolotl). Fully custom art for all the court cards, aces and joker.  Matte black tuck box and spot UV ink print for all the details. Printed by Cartamundi on their amazing True Linen B9 Finish. ACE OF HEARTS UNDER WATER Axolotl Playing Cards features original art for every card it contains (court cards, aces, joker, regular number cards and back design) inspired in the Axolotl and its natural environment, the design focuses on 3 main elements:
      The Axolotl  Water  Water hyacinth The back design illustrates how the axolotl interacts with this elements that are constantly present through all its life. Ripples in the water created by the movement of the axolotl pass through the water hyacinths, this scene displays the harmony that its present between the 3 elements the water hyacinth, the axolotl and the water.
      THE BACK DESIGN The aces were inspired by the Axolotls cute almost child-like looks and the curious interaction that they sometimes have with different plants (in this case the water hyacinth).

      From the Kickstarter page:
      The Basius Max collection is a DOUBLE SIDED series of large solid purple resin pads, full of jaw-dropping hand-sculpted negatively recessed texture
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/984996675/basius-max?ref=friends_launched
       

      Basius stamps are one of the most talked about hobby tools that I've never tried, mainly because they never seem to make it to retail.  This time I'm not letting frugality get in the way of awesome bases!
