Fog Monster: Mini Fog Machines For TableTop Games.


Recommended Posts

I don't play games, but if this is not too expensive this might be awesome for taking pics.

Undead/Jungle settings misty surroundings..

I'm getting ideas here.

 

And while the two lovebirds above are bickering which one will back, I will keep an eye on this.

I do take into consideration though that in garden centres one can buy small mist generators too.

Price comparision will be done.

Probably an atomizer, otherwise the fog would rise rather than slide along the ground.  So, this is a project you could build yourself for around $15.  Small plastic jar, an ultrasonic atomizer from ebay, a little bit of tubing, and some hirst arts or Dwarven Forge walls to pretty it up.  Or just paint the whole thing black and call it a day.  A $5 atomizer will give you enough fog for a small table using plain hot water, no need to buy fog juice or dry ice.

 

Obviously these ones are going to look better, and likely work more efficiently than a home-brew project.  It does look like they pump out quite a bit of fog, so if you have a big table it'll probably give you better coverage than a cheap atomizer.  Also it's got the nice pre-sculpted terrain pieces that fit in with Dwarven Forge tiles, so you wouldn't have the hassle of making that up for yourself.

 

For me, price point for this is about $30.  If that's where it's at, I could see myself picking one up.  Otherwise I'll pass.

 

Edit:  Eek, $80 for the basic model.  Going to have to pass on this one.

Wouldn't you prefer water anyway to avoid gunking up your terrain & minis with glycerin or oil or whatever else was used? (I've never used one so I don't know how much condenses.)

I know on my fog machine (its one of the one's from spencer's gifts) that anything about a foot in front of the machine can and will get some of that residue from the fog juice. That's why its recommended for outdoor use only:)

 

And it's 9:08 AM PST, is this still going live?

I was bored so did a search and found this on their facebook page:

 

UPDATE: Resetting Fog Machine project to optimal Kickstarter time. Tuesday August 1st 1 PM EST

After some in depth research with Kickstarter data today we have decided to set the project date as above. This is due to starting and ending times being optimal to the success of the project.

We are re-sending email notifications to update. Though we are as anxious as you to get going in the end we believe this will create the best opportunity for buyers around the world as well as last minute buyers which seems to be crucial in many projects as you can see in the chart below.

We hope you all will understand and bear with us as we do everything in our power to make this project a success 1f642.png:)

All the best from us here at RGFX

Hmm, August 1st, coincidence?

Not sure that I like the idea of my game table being all wet from water...or even worse - covered in a residue of some sort. The effect looks cool, but I will want assurances that it is actually practical.

Hem... that looks like the standard DF sewer wall that has a hole in it already that can be left open as in the pic, filled with a grate piece, or a filler piece.

 

I'm of similar opinion to Talae... Freaking cool looking effects for picture taking, but I'm not sure I'd want my stuff getting damp over a night of gaming or even worse having a chemical film deposited on everything at the table.

 

Watching...

Dry ice is made of sublimated CO2, which means it won't leave residue on anything. (You're exhaling it right now.)

 

You can buy it, or even make it, although it's not safe to touch without protective gloves, since you can get frostbite.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      I've bought everything this company has put out so far.  I'll probably pick up these two as well.  Really great figures based on classic artwork.
       
      These two are both nude, so I can't show pictures here!

      "The muses" is a range of miniatures offered by Golem Miniatures.
      These 80 mm scale figures, in limited edition, will all come from realistic and oriental paintings of great painters of the nineteenth, a period that we greatly love.
      During the fourth campaign "The muses", we had suggested that you submit ideas for the next muses. A vote had then been put in place to decide between the 27 muses that you had selected.
      One muse dominated this vote: "La boîte à bijoux" painted by Guillaume Seignac.
      To accompany it, a second muse has been chosen on the same theme: "human skin on animal skin". You will discover it below, hoping she inspires you! :)
       
      During the third Muses campaign, we produced the magnificent Lady Godiva painted by John Collier, a famous English painter and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
      Here is another of his works: "Lilith" painted in 1889.
      Lilith is a mythical Hebrew and Biblical figure (Adam's first wife), whom some see as the very first portrayal of feminism in history.

      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!
