If the pledges are $100 plus shipping each, that's $20 for a building. Much less than resin, less painting than MDF and 3D printing, but still more expensive than papercraft and 3D printing.

I'll bet it's more like £60-70 per building with maybe a couple smaller buildings together. £15-30 for the playmat. And smaller one sheet sets for £8-12. It is not cheap and the shipping is brutal too. Looks pretty though.

I'm curious why you think it'll be so high? They've already previewed the base pledges in the linked blog post, so "$20 per building" is just doing the math of "announced pledge price" ÷ "announced pledge contents".

Yeah each set will be £70-75 going be every other KS they have done.

 

Each sheet of card is £4 so additional addon items are costed accordingly if it takes 2 sheets then the add-on costs £8. 

 

With their KS you get a ton of additional sheets as SG. 

 

You get a lot of bang for your buck, shipping is high, but a single set weighs over 2.5kg.

Now the only questions are: is the playmat included (like it was with their dungeon terrain)? And: what about bushes and plants ;) ?

 

A 2ft by 2ft playmat is general standard. Bush's and plants probably not, the guys avoid making "Organic" scenery as it looks weird in card.

it's live ... playmat unfortunately NOT included (but add-on price is ok and I don't care that much - the pledge is worth the money in my opinion even without the mat - and there are stretch goals to come).

I'm really tempted to go all in on this one to give me a foundation for towns; I do like the ruined monastery as well.

They didn't even include the play mats in a pledge, *sigh*:down:, it looks like there's not as much to a pledge now either, that battlefield is pretty weak for content, SG's might make it more worth it but considering what the last Battlesystem KS cost me, (its NOT Canada friendly fyi) I'll pass on this one too. Looks cool, but I can make houses from dollar store foamcore that'll look just as good and waaay cheaper. For those who pledge, enjoy.

I have a 3d printer (and have been printing a lot lately) - and I'm still backing this because:

 

- I don't have to wait for 24+ hours to have a house ready

- I don't have to paint the Battlesystem houses

- I can put those Battlesystem houses together in variant ways

- I don't need a whole cupboard to store them

 

But yes, the fact that shipping to Germany should not cost an arm and a leg is important, too.

Their last fantasy kickstarter was shipped to Canada by DHL, who charged me a $14 handling fee plus GST and PST.  It has been said on these forums that a previous scifi KS was fulfilled in Canada via Snakes and Lattes, thus avoiding such charges.  But Battle Systems make no such claims or promises here. 

 

Agreed that the value isn't there yet -- at least not for Canada.  if they add more buildings to the stretch goals that might change.

Are people often paring this with Dwarven Forge on their tables? Would be interested in seeing pics with both on a table if they are out there.

the last Battlesystem KS

Can you comment on the quality of the components, ease of assembly and so on?

 

I heard from their sewer set that it is nice but basically an afternoon project to assemble by itself.

quality of components: I have nothing to criticize there.

 

ease of assembly: I have the Fantasy "dungeon" terrain and yeah, it requires some planning in advance. Putting it together then is - depending on the intended size - not THAT time-consuming. I think because those houses have easier layouts than a dungeon, it will even be quicker to assemble the village.

      TableTop World has been around for a while, they’re based in Poland, and make great looking resin buildings. I have a few in various states of construction and painting although I haven’t purchased anything from them recently.
       
      Their stuff is very pricey though and I expect that to be reflected in the kickstarter.
       
      I am a bit puzzled by their comment about making this in the bigger 28mm-32mm range, as I thought that was the range that their previous buildings fell into.
       
      Anyway, if you’re interested best prepare your wallets now.

      About
        Hi, my name is Raffaele Stumpo and this is my second KS campaign so let me tell you something about me and my work. I work as a sculptor in the fantasy miniatures, sci-fi and board games industry since 2003. My passion for the fantasy world grew more and more when I was a child. At some point, it became my job. I think my enthusiasm shines vividly in my creations. Thanks to my dedication, I won many industry awards and dozens of Golden Demon, and the following Best of Show: Grog 2016, and Grog 2017.
      If you want take a look to my profile at CMON site.
      In 2008, I started a collaboration with several miniatures studios for the production of fantasy football teams. I worked on dozen of teams, mastering skills and techniques, until I became worldwide known. I prepare my models one by one, that is why they are unique and this is the main reason people appreciate their quality. Everything is handmade. I collaborated in many successful Kickstarter campaigns as a sculptor Designer and as a Guest:
      - Galaxy Defenders - The Earth Strikes Back! boardgame;
      - Galaxy Defenders - Co-op Sci-Fi Miniature Board Game;
      - Sword & Sorcery - Ancient Chronicles;
      - Bull Warriors: Chaos Dwarfs for Fantasy Football;

      Version for fantasy football

        Dwarves: Team Legends
      I've always loved the Dwarves... Their culture, their strength, their pride! 
      I always chose the Dwarves character in every role playing game I joined, video game or board game.
      So, what best opportunity to show my love for the Dwarves than my own sculpting project?
      From this premise is born "Dwarves: Kings and Legends"
      A set of 28-30 mm scale miniatures of Dwarves, compatible with all the major game settings and all convertible to Fantasy Football.
      All the models are completely hand sculpted.
       
      I hope you will like them as much as I enjoyed making them!

      Belius versus Angus and Branag  
       
      Belius the Black is a giant with mysterious origins. We say about him  that it is the reincarnation of a god, or even,  the guardian of an ancient temple. In short, according to the babarian tribes of the North, it is a black legend  related to Bregan Lorelei’s great-grandfather.
       
      Bélius is a 70 mm figurine sculpted by me, not counting my hours, in order to obtain the incarnation of the warrior of evil, chaos and destruction. The resin cast will be made by Mr Dès, former melter of  Rackham , a pledge of high quality. This project , a range of dark fantasy figurines, is important because I can create from A to Z what i want  while satisfying the fans of my work. 
       
      Indeed,  I have been sculpting figurines for more than 20 years : First, for Rackham for 9 years and then for various freelance brands such as Mierce Miniatures,  Monolith with Conan, Mythic Battles and Claustrophobia which are successful  on Kickstarter.
       
      The Kickstarter platform will allow me to finance the moulds for all the figurines, which are all my personal creations. Knowing that the fans of my work will be able to hold them in hand, paint them, or play with them in any kind of games is really a great pleasure for me. This first step is important because i imagine that these figurines are destined for a game in the future.

                       Belius is accompanied by two brothers, Angus and Branag (35mm): They are barbarians from northern tribes. They are elite soldiers ready to  do anything to protect their lands and the Elebore Forest from any intrusion in the name of their leader, the demigod Siegfried.
