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!

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.

      Sammy the Stab was a Halfling. Not your average pipe smoking, beer drinking happy-go-lucky hole dweller with a walking stick and a happy whistled song on her lips. Sammy was the type of Halfling with her sticky fingers in your pockets, sharpening her dagger or climbing out a window with a bulging sack of stolen property!
      Sammy was a shifty, thieving little rogue that would steal your gold teeth if you fell asleep with your mouth open – but – Boy, could this hideous greasy little goblin, I mean halfling, open the strongest locked doors or root out the most elusive hidden treasure.
      You absolutely need Sammy in your Adventures Party. Just keep your eye on her!
      Organize and gather your Adventurers Party and get ready to descend into the Darkest Dungeon or the Scariest Forest or Wilderness.
      Treasure Awaits.
      The Adventurers is a wide selection of beautifully sculpted very characterful Fantasy Characters. Suitable for Role-Players, Painters, Collectors, and anyone that enjoys really kick-broccoli Miniatures.
      The Full Collection GIRL POWER
      In Celebration of the astounding news that the Spice Girls are reforming, we have a Fantastic Set of Female Characters for your Gaming pleasure.  Zig-a-zig ah!
      Just joking! We constantly hear that there are not enough of the fairer sex so we we designed our range to include to a wide and varied group to spice up (sorry!) any Adventuring party. We have collected them all into one Posh Deal.
      Girl Power IT'S MAGIC
      Here we have a Powerful group of Magicians, Enchanters, Sorcerers able to turn the tide of battle in your  favor.
      It's Magic A word from Olsen of Olsen, True Adventurer
      "I cannot fathom why I was asked to write a piece about our Magical Friends. A true Adventurer doesn’t hide in the shadows waiting for a safe moment to launch a fireball or lightning bolt. A real Adventurer goes toe-to-toe with the most dangerous of foes. See the panic in their eyes, smell their fear, and celebrate Victory with a Flagon of Ale; Now that is an Adventurer.  You don’t hide behind a rock, wait for a safe moment, then jump up and wave a stick and shout abra-ca-bloody-dabra." Just saying…

      About
      We have teamed up with Gamecraft for the relaunch of the Miniature Paints range of liquid acrylic paints in our new, mail order friendly packaging. 
        These high quality, pigment rich paints are fully inter-mixable with the other major brands and at 30ml per pot contain around twice as much paint as some of the well known brands.
        Miniature Paints have been around for over 30 years, though originally formulated specifically for use on metal miniatures they work well on resin and plastic that has been properly cleaned and primed, and have been used by our customers on canvas, leather, glass and even fingernails. 

      As this Kickstarter progresses I will share more pictures of the paint in use and being mixed with other ranges.  
      We are trying to keep this Kickstarter as simple as possible so there are no add-ons to worry about, there are 3 paint set options, each one available without extras or with brushes and miniatures added. Just select the pledge that suits you, if you are new to the hobby of collecting and painting miniatures then a pledge with brushes and a sample set of our miniatures (for a special kickstarter price) would be ideal for you. If you are only interested in the paint then the PRO set gets you all 20 paints for the lowest price -just £1.60 per pot! 
      Postage will be added at cost, it is charged based on weight using current Royal Mail prices. 
      Basic Set - £17.50 The Basic Set- 10 colours for £17.50 
      White, Black, Bright Green, Royal Blue, Bright Red, Golden Yellow, 
      Pale Flesh, Chocolate Brown, Bright Gold, Silver. 

      This pledge is also available in an option with brushes and with both brushes and a sampler set of RPE miniatures.
      Advanced Set - £25 The Advanced Set -15  colours for £25  
      This adds 5 more colours to the basic set:
      Dark Green, Mid Blue, Burgundy, Tanned Flesh and Leather Brown 

      This pledge is also available in an option with brushes and with both brushes and a sampler set of RPE miniatures.
      Pro Set -£32 The Pro Set -20 colours for £32        Stretch Goals apply to this pledge.
      This adds another 5 paints to the advanced set-
      White Primer,  Matt Varnish, Dark Grey, Olive Green, Copper

      The "I'll take the lot!", pledge is for anyone that hasn't backed one of our previous projects and wants to catch up in one go, it includes the top level pledge from this kickstarter plus a warband of 10 dwarves, a crew of 12 dwarf pirates, a set of 6 wizards and for a festive touch, Evil Santa, the Snow Queen and an evil present. One or two of the miniatures from those kickstarters are included here as part of the sampler set, so we will replace them with stretch goal add-ons from their respective kickstarters where applicable to avoid duplication. More information and pictures for this pledge will follow in future updates.
