Playmats.Eu isn't a new name for many gamers. They've been supplying playmats, 2D terrain and even some 3D accessories to retail customers worldwide and even provided components for a few successful Kickstarters. Now they've launched a campaign for Resinarium Bridges - a new product line of exclusive, hand painted bridges for wargames.

With the new brand, they hope to provide customers with high-end 3D terrain: the sculpts are detailed and made of resin, and they come hand-painted out of the box (though there is an option to buy a plain resin cast too, if you fancy painting them yourself). Anyone looking for a nice-looking tactical chokepoint for their battles, can back their Kickstarter to bring the new line to life.

You can see the campaign for yourself here: http://kck.st/2JEME8c

If it sounds like something up your alley don't wait too long - in the first 48 hours of the campaign, every backer gets one of their modular rivers (with an anti-slip foam base) for free.

You can currently choose from four models: Wooden, Stone, Orcish Wooden and Orcish Stone. The first two fit pretty much any heroic-scale game, while the latter work great in fantasy settings. More bridges, including an Elven one and a Sci Fi one, are planned if Stretch Goals are met. In a rather nice twist,  you don't have to make a decision on the Bridge model(s) the moment you pledge. You will choose which models you'd like to receive after the campaign ends, in the Pledge Manager.

 

Let me know your thoughts!

Will there be unpainted options? No-go for me if they're already painted.

There are, and they're cheaper than the painted versions. One of the reasons we chose resin instead of cheaper material is because it's great for painting.

 

We're actually surprised by how many people went for the unpainted option - almost half the people pledged for the unpainted cast!

Tempted, but the lack of grid adds to my Will Save.

You need to think outside of the grid.

I do definitely like the look of these pieces, but will probably pass. Main issue is that the price (while fair) is still more than I want to pay for just a handful of pieces that may or may not see decent use. Unfortunately, while I do have a couple of tabletop wargames that I play, it is rarely played at my house, so the terrain is not needed as much. I'm more likely to use the terrain for my rpg group but that's where the price of the bridge pieces becomes a bit high since I wouldn't be using it often (i.e. not every encounter can have a bridge in it).

 

As for the lack of a grid, I think the unpainted option can potentially remedy this with some careful painting. The irony of course is that I would probably pick up a bridge piece as an add-on to a larger terrain set if I felt I could use the larger set in enough games.

Just wanted to let you guys know, we are hearing you re: the price point.

 

We're looking into ways of making the models more cost effective without sacrificing the high quality, the latter being the sole idea behind Resinarium.

 

We were hoping a flat shipping fee (irrespective of the amount of bridges) would be useful, since it'd allow people to pool their orders together, but obviously that only helps so much.

I will let you know as soon as we think of anything! And in the meantime, if you have any questions, I'll happily answer them.

For what it's worth I've purchased resin bridges before and these don't seem out of line.  And that was 15 years ago prices.  That's a big chunk of resin.

 

The "objective markers" are pretty great as well.

Cheers Jeneki! I really hope we get to unlock some of the SG stuff! That goblin in a bucket cracks me up every time I see him :)

 

On that topic, I come bearing great news for everyone who finds the >$49 price tag to steep. 

 

We've just announced a new Saver Pledge Level - for $34 you can snag one of our highly detailed unpainted resin bridges and help unlock more models!

 

Check it out! - http://kck.st/2JEME8c

I agree with this sentiment. I think the price point is fair (and hey, that new super saver is extra nice), it was more of a "for my purposes, its a bit steep." I'd be using this most likely for Pathfinder/D&D games which means that it would come out maybe a handful of times per campaign (which with my groups tend to last several years). Just not enough use to justify it for me personally.

 

Now, if I were hosting a table top wargame night regularly, I'd be all over these.

I also agree. 

It kind of sucks that sometimes the price is fair, but I just can't justify the expenditure.  Hope this does well for you, Pav.

      Andy over at Heresy Miniatures has done something I thought he’d never do. Launch a second production run of his infamous dragon. 
      Link to the Live Kickstarter:

      I know there’s at least a couple of us here who have this dragon from it’s original production run. Haven’t attempted to assemble mine yet. It’s a huge beast of a model and is definitely for experienced hobbyists.
       
      I wish Andy all the best for his kickstarter but I am very concerned he’s going back into production on this. The original run nearly ruined him and his company, it’s a long story, and it took years for him to get everyone their dragons.
      The price for the dragon has gone up since then, substantially so. I really hope he has the financial end of this worked out.
       
      Its a great dragon though.

      Why?
      Because you most likely don’t already own any.

      This one just went up. Seems like a smaller studio with some cool sculpts. The cost per figure seems reasonable, although shipping is a bit of a bummer.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/howardtayler/schlock-mercenary-books-14-and-15
       
      About
      It is high time we put the next two Schlock Mercenary books into print, and into your hands. We love these books, and we're excited for you to have them.
      THE BOOKS
      Broken Wind: Schlock Mercenary Volume 14
            "Think of it as a great, big can full of sky... You could drop Mars into that can, and then tuck Luna and Europa in on top."
      Cover art by Howard Tayler and Travis Walton. Design by Sandra Tayler, Howard Tayler, and K.B. Spangler.      The  Toughs have taken a small contract in a very, very big place. It's just  the sort of mission Captain Tagon excels at, but his gunboat isn't  answering to him, and his command chain includes the outed spy who stole  the gunboat, the retired general who took it for a joyride, and the  disgraced major from whom it was stolen in the first place.
           With  air on both sides of the airlock it's tempting to start throwing people  through it. They'll fall for days, provided nothing with wings decides  they look tasty...
      This comprehensive print collection will be 176 pages  long, perfect-bound in full color, with 9 pages of all-new story and over 30 pieces of margin art.  
      Delegates and Delegation: Schlock Mercenary Volume 15
      "I have standing orders to start exactly zero wars."
      Cover art by Howard Tayler and Travis Walton. Design by Sandra Tayler, Howard Tayler, and K.B. Spangler.
      Captain  Alexia Murtaugh has a new ship, and a new contract to provide embassy  security. Sergeant Schlock has a new title, and a shiny new "get out of  jail free" card. Lieutenant Haley Sorlie has new friends, new implants  for spying on them, and a newfound distaste for the politics of  diplomacy.
            As Earth orbits its way into a new  century her people have new allies, new enemies, and that old, familiar  panic one gets upon discovering that there really is something new under  the sun. 
      This print collection will be 160 pages  long, perfect-bound in full color, with 9 pages all new story, and over 30 pieces of margin art.  
      WHY WE USE KICKSTARTER
      For years we handled our print runs by taking pre-orders in our online store. Last year we changed that, using Kickstarter for the pre-orders of Random Access Memorabilia: Schlock Mercenary Book 13. We were very pleased with the way it worked out.
      We like Kickstarter's system for communication between us and you, our backers.  Kickstarter delivers a great pre-order experience for backers, and with Backerkit we get very robust fulfillment tools, making the job of shipping thousands of books much easier on us than it's been in the past.  Kickstarting this print run lets us offer you more than we've been able to offer in the past. When we say "offer more," we don't mean "more pages." The books are finished, and we're all better served if we don't mess around with  that part. We'll be offering additional merchandise, both physical and digital, that we wouldn't otherwise be able to produce. You'll find those in the Stretch Goals.
      STRETCH GOALS
      $60,000 Desktop Backgrounds
      All backers at 1 book pdf level and above will get desktop backgrounds featuring the cover art for Broken Wind and Delegates & Delegation. 
      (Howard has finished a few of them already, and is trying them out.)
      Howard's over-the-drawing-table monitor, now with 100% more BROKEN WIND $70,000  Fleet coins 
      Three new ship coins, one each for Broken Wind, Neosynchronicity, and Cindercone. The coins will be available to purchase as add-ons for $10 each. We've cleared this goal, so we'll have some art to show you next week.
      $80,000 Maxim 70 Key chain
      Maxim 70 reads: "Failure isn't an option. It's mandatory. The option is whether or not to let failure be the last thing you do" Our M70 coin has been one of our most popular challenge coins. This time we want to reprint it as a key chain, so that you can more easily keep it close. The key chain will be available as an add-on for $10.
      $90,000 The Reprints
      Teraport Wars is almost out of stock, this is a problem for making up book sets, we'd like to do a second printing.
      Howard Tayler short story PDF. Howard has written some prose short stories that were sold to various anthologies. The rights have now reverted to us and we'd like to make these stories available to backers. There will be at least two stories, one previously printed in Shared Nightmares, the other in Shadows Beneath. This pdf will be given to all backers at 1 book PDF level and above. Expected delivery January 2019.
