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.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.
        
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.

      About
      RM Printable Terrain is proud to present Stormguard Undone, the next chapter in our Stormguard Story for terrain STL's.
      Through decades of war and conflict, the world was divided into 3 lands. Quivira the city of light, the one beacon of hope in the world, the perfect city. Biringan the land of Darkness, necromancers leaning towards the dark arts to gain their power, and Uffmoor woods. Uffmoor woods was where people fleeing the great war went to go into hiding, Where druids looked to healing the world and being one with Nature. 
      Now is your time, a lull in the conflict after the destruction of Stormguard, you need to venture beyond the walls of a city, as it offers you little safety now… Explore a world torn asunder by a thirst for power, a hubris that was unmatched.
      Stormguard Undone: is a support-free 28mm scenery collection,(of printable files for a 3D printer) designed for wargames, role playing games, and skirmish games that will feature many different pieces of scatter terrain for gaming. Each of the pledge levels will be delivered as STL files for you to print on your home 3D Printer. All of the files were designed to fit 3D printers with a bed size of 220mm x 220mm bed and print without supports! All of pieces of terrain were sculpted by the very talented Iain Lovecraft. All pieces of terrain were designed to work with a tabletop gaming scale of 28mm-32mm.
        PLEDGE THE SCRIBE: The scribe includes no rewards, it's just a way to follow along with the progress of the campaign, and support our project. If you choose the Scribe, thank you for contributing!
        PLEDGE QUIVIRA BATTLE MAGE: The battle mage will include any core files, and any unlocked stretch goals with the key word QUIVIRA. This set is for creating the city of light. Pledge will be delivered as STL Files.
        PLEDGE BIRINGAN DARK NECROMANCER: The necromancer pledge level will include any core files, and any unlocked stretch goals with the key word BIRINGAN. This set is for creating the land of darkness, truly dark feeling terrain to add to any battlefield. Pledge will be delivered as STL Files.
      PLEDGE UFFMOOR DRUID: The druid pledge level will include any core files, and any unlocked files with the key word UFFMOOR. This set is for creating more natural terrain for your table, and structures that are built into nature, instead of destroying it. Pledge will be delivered as STL Files.
      PLEDGE UNDONE ARCHMAGE: A master of the magical arts, this pledge level will include all core files, and all unlocked files. This set is for anyone looking to create multiple themed battlegrounds through 3D printing.
        But what if I don't have a 3D printer? RM Printable Terrain will be offering printed terrain after the close of the kickstarter, stay tuned for more details.
        Special Thanks: A very special thanks to Iain Lovecraft for all his hard work on designing a ton of great Support Free STL files for printing next level gaming terrain.
      Risks and challenges
      DIGITAL MEDIA:
      All of the files will be broken down into smaller files, so that you can choose how you want to print them, but it's up to you to get the most out of your 3D printer for the files. All of the files are going to be supplied in STL format.
      If you would like to edit the files, and alter the files you are welcome to, but you are not welcome to share/re-sell these files without permission from me (so please just ask first). I also can't guarantee that modified files will continue to work properly.
      The Images shown on the campaign page are just for visualization and although they may come very close, they may not be an exact representation of the final design or printed model. Make sure you look at the printed pictures of the terrain.
      I am going to reserve the right to alter any of the models shown, at any time, before delivery, with the intent of improving the design, or efficiency of production.
      There are no risks in the delivery of the files, after funds clear you will be sent a code that will reduce any items in your pledge level to zero in our online store. Stretch goals will be started after the kickstarter ends, and be delivered as quickly as possible.
      So please join us on this quest and support us so that we can continue to bring stunning terrain to your tabletop.

      Seems to be a good time for 3D printers (and a bad one for wallets).
