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")

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.

      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.
