Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1915792245/1614419087?ref=6j5c5t&token=15b18208

 

Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

Reading the comments about how Archon / Prodos (same staff, different company name) are *still* incorrectly fulfilling AvP orders, so I'll wait for retail.

Also, Vanguard and Chronicle X are still in production.

Yeah, they are doing what other companies do, too ... putting out loads of projects without finishing the others first, probably financing the old ones with the new ones. They are also producing the miniatures for Wild Assents ... wonder how long they will take to do that with all the backlog they have.

 

But yes, that looks tempting ... and the price-point ...

Based on the comments above, I’ll be keeping my money happily in my account and not wasting it on Kickstarter frustration. Thank you for the insight!

I'm sure I'd feel differently if I had backed AVP, but I've had nothing but good luck with Archon. They produce some fantastic looking minis, I've received LOAD and Vanguard of War and been very happy with the results.

 

Of course this is something completely different, so I'll decide after seeing the actual campaign launch. Also, I've had TERRIBLE luck with terrain kickstarters (Itar's Workshop, Labyrinths, Dark Age Outpost), so I'm a little hesitant anyway.

I'm cautiously interested, but the biggest thing for me is I want to know more about the pledges, what's included, and what kind of flooring options there are with it (because it's always nice to get a sniper or heavy weapons team a tad higher up on a table).  I also would like to see example configurations, and how much board coverage can be gained through the various pledges that I hope are coming.

To bad its not the right "look" for CAV but it gives me ideas!!! ;)

Oddly enough, uses for CAV did spring to mind, even if it's noticeably more for stuff like 40k.  Doubly so with other offerings that have spring up on the market, like those new Hirst Arts molds..  (and of course, all the lovely upcoming CAV scenery stuff!) 

 

Now, for adding onto a Kill Team kind of board... That could definitely make things interesting...

Not that other companies aren't affected by clients unable to pay for their orders. : 

 

"It won't be an official statement as we need to wait until Thursday when CEO of Archon will be holding a meeting with Ninja Division about this situation. However, the fact is that we are on hold with all Ninja Division projects due to lack of payment (Starfider, Relic Knights as well as Humble Bundle - Paizo is still not paid). This should not, however, affect what we are doing, as external contracts are about 15% of total Archons turnover. The worst-case scenario is that Archon will have to cover all the manufacturing losses, and this could mean that some of our FUTURE internal projects could be delayed, but that's nothing major. Anyway, please wait for an official statement. We are all hoping that ND will find some solution. Thanks.

 

Thanks to nkelsch on Dakka.

Did anyone end up getting this?  Beasts of War used it for their huge Apocalypse board and it looked like fun.

I was seriously tempted by it, but didn't go in due to various reasons (money was really tight at the time, Archon/Prodos being involved, and probably a few others like "not really interested in 40k anymore")

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.

      OMG!  Jason Weibe helped create the new Dwarven line being released on Kickstarter by Tomb Guardians!  These minis look so cool and they are cheap!  I haven't seen anyone post about this yet but here is the link.  It starts tomorrow morning.  They also said Bobby Jackson and Gene Van Horne created there monsters in the set.  Cant wait.   I purchased there Amazons and they were fantastic!  I posted some pics.  Im assuming the Fire Demon and add ons are in Resin.
