I see what you're saying, but I believe it paints too uniform a picture of Europe. For example, in Italy they dine on slabs of marble while the Brits sleep on stone beds covered with ivy, and in Franc

All furniture in Europe is made out of cardboard, just as all furniture in Canada is made out of snow.    Or ice if you are rich.

Fact check: not all Americans have huge houses and lots of big cars. Cities are always cramped. My family of four lives in 800sq feet, and I take the bus to work; not for lack of money, but because it

Some interesting tests. Gives a better Idea of what it is. The main advantage I can see with this over a folding table, is that it is very light and can be taken anywhere. Those folding tables can be a woof to move.

 

5kg for an aluminum table (60 x 100 cm) is not really much weight for a table and easy to transport.

Got a desk from ikea for 35$, it's survived two moves, supported the weight of a 20 plus pound computer and monitor. It doesn't fold up, but takes ten minutes to disassemble and reassemble.

 

It's a neat table...but come on, 80$?

 

Sure, it's not American made and the ikea table top comes with a variety of sizes that still make it cheaper than this. It's stable, taken abuse well and I'd definitely buy another.

The first KS brought in almost $60k so it's no surprising it funded at a significantly lower amount.

 

As I said in the first KS thread for this these are probably great if you live in a place without a lot of space and need to use public transportation a lot (and want to take your game table with you). That pretty much describes almost no where in the US which is why it's smart not to really target the US mark--thought it does seam odd they're basing the KS in the US and not England.

Listening to Beeble Babble and they were talking about this and how cardboard furniture isn't uncommon in Europe.

 

No, cardboard furniture isn't uncommon in Europe, it is very rare. But it is possible to make furniture out of it and I heard there exist a store which sells such stuff. But more than 99% of the people do not have them and I think most of them never saw such furniture.
 

Indeed. Never once have I seen such an item during my 38 years of trampling European soil. What a strange Beeble Babble remark!

Yay! Sweden, Sweden, Sweden!

I built a coffee table out of corrugated cardboard when I was in college. Not because I needed, wanted, or thought of doing so. It was either a 3D design class or Sculpture 102 or something of that ilk that caused it. If I had really wanted a coffee table I would have used wood. Assignment was along the lines of:  "build a functional piece of furniture out of unconventional materials".

      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.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
