StoneHaven Miniature Pop-Up Terrain Kits Kickstarter


Recommended Posts

Kind of my point.

 

$130 for the assembly is significant, but only three sets makes it a loss leader/promo item. So the real cost would be significantly more.

 

And if the creator was taking more than an hour per piece (even though it was a proto), that means it would be likely to take quite a bit more than that for anyone else.

 

= "a pain"

Gorey had a pop up book for Dracula... and once you reminded me.... Yeah, I can see the similarities.   But I am an enormous Gory fan... and can recite the entirety of the The Gashlycrumb Tinies Alp

Come over to the paper side,   we will let you use the sacred glue, scissors and coloured pencils!

Stonehavens Terrain Kit Kickstarter is now live.   https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2087444096/pop-up-miniature-terrain-kit   It's a little different as it's for "pop up" style terrain.  

It looks to me like a project for those hours we tend to spend watching Netflix. It may take weeks to get all five done, but it's something to do while being disappointed by the final season of Dexter.

About the pdf/print-yourself option: are these one-sided or recto-verso pdf's? Because I'm afraid that for dual sided printing the images may not line up perfectly.

Especially when the pdf's are formatted for Letter and I have to print on A4.

Teskal, did you mean to link to the kickstarter project in the thread about that very kickstarter? Seems sort of like saying "want to discuss kickstarters? Check out http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/55318-stonehaven-miniature-pop-up-terrain-kits-kickstarter-now-live/page-4 "

Teskal started a new thread on the topic of this kickstarter which was merged with the existing one. Cut him a break. :upside:

I like the initial stuff but I would love the Viking Village stretch goal.  My campaign world is Norse based.  In for a full set.

 

Luckily I am flush and plus for finances for a bit.

 

Only $500 away from the Norse set, which is *two* hexes across. 40% more popup!  ^_^

 

I'm too lazy to cut foam for storage cases, and I *like* seeing my painted mini's, so terrain's useful to display figures.The DF Caverns were too expensive for me, and these popups should work fine.

Hmmm... I am biased....

 

To me it is a cool paper model that I get to put together, and I can play games on it!

 

But I have been doing paper modeling since the sixties, and wargaming only since the seventies....

 

This looks... interesting - the ability to fold the entire scene flat is, as far as I know, a brand new one for RP and war games.

 

My only disappointment is that I was hoping for a miniatures Kickstarter for Goblins.... (I would love to see what Stonehaven would come up with for Goblin Adventuring Parties.... The first group of Goblin Adventurers that I ever ran for was nicknamed the Flying Garbonzo Brothers.... Damn, it was fun - a bunch of Chaotic Good goblins rampaging around, being heroic, in a Paladins realm for Birthright.... There was a running joke that the official painting of the Paladin Regent was doing a face palm... ::P: )

If it helps with your disappointment, the same sources that gave me the early heads up on the pop up terrain have also told me that Stonehaven have been thinking of possibly doing another set of miniatures later this summer. Not definite yet, as plans can change.

 

I haven't heard anything about what race it might be, so you might want to start campaigning for goblins sooner rather than later.

I am just now realizing that with lack of color, I will not have a need to "edge" the terrain with a marker to hide the hideous white line. That makes me happy.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      Just some more finished terrain from the Shadowfey set from Printable Scenery.

      All were printed on my Ender-3 with the exception of some of the branches, the stump, and the bones, which were done in resin on my Elegoo Mars.
