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.

      The Hunters 2114 is a fully cooperative game which enables you to play solo or with a group of friends.
      Players become machine hunters who participate in a complex and gripping campaign comprised of 200 story cards. The narrative presented on the cards is full of story twists and difficult decisions to make.
      During the campaign, players execute missions. Each of them takes 30 to 60 minutes to play. It may take place during the day or at nighttime, in various weather conditions. Every time players must choose proper tactics and equipment matching current circumstances.
      Players may barter with local inhabitants, undertake various jobs, overcome unexpected obstacles or expand their base in order to manufacture over 70 different types of gear from parts scavenged during the game.

      I always liked the Idea of a KS for a complete RP module, minis, terrain and all. FOI is a nice company.

      WHAT IS THIS KICKSTARTER ABOUT?

      To produce three new resin 32mm scale fantasy football complete teams along with the DeathChariot.

      This KickStarter is a joint venture between Rolljordan Miniatures, Heresy Miniatures and Impact! Miniatures to bring three incredible looking metal Fantasy Football teams into affordable resin for about half the price of the metal teams to give more gamers the opportunity to own these great models.

      The miniatures in the teams are the new resin that Impact! started using this month that has good flexibility while still being able to filed. The resin is to be painted as easily (both brush and spray primers can work). The miniatures all come with bases and are provided unpainted. The miniatures will require light clean up and assembly. Impact! Miniatures has created several KickStarters and delivered to all backers on all our previous KickStarters so bid with confidence.

      I know for many coaches I talk to that making sure a new team fits in with the current 32mm scale is very important. All 3 of the new teams fit very well with the 32mm scale. From left to right, Norse Ice Trolless, Norse Thrower, Human Lineman, Kalle Imp, Heresy Ogre, Legio Halfling and Legio Treeman.


      another Impact! fantasy football KS, they're nice and reliable so if you want any of the stuff back with confidence

      This looks interesting ... no, actually it looks too good to be true - the buildings are plastic and almost (?) correctly scaled.
       

       
      Has anybody heard about that before? Or about the company? I hope they show better pictures of the minis as it looks a bit as they are light on detail.
