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.

      All rolling pins have a full drill to save material and use a wooden stick through it if you feel more comfortable.

      Story
      The Middle Land is a campaign for producing a 75mm figure collection made in high quality resin, based on the medieval & epic fantasy that inspired so many novels, films, rpg and boardgames that marked the teen ages of this campaign authors.
      On tiny leads we're huge fans of those 80's & 90's rpg, in wich characters such as the long white bearded wise wizard, the little halfling involved in big adventures or the evil orc were so frequent. That is why we wanted to bring those characters back, keeping the looks and designs of that era, but updated to the needs and demands of current collectors and painters.
      Nowaday there's a magnificent computer designed miniature offer everywhere, but for this campaign we wanted to stick on the traditional hand-made sculptures, as we believe they bring an unique personality to the product.
      The Halfling
      It was all over. Peace at home and his relative's attention was everything he needed to smile and remember the thousand adventures he lived. Never stopping to think, even for a moment, in that treasure he carried in his pocket, as the most valuable memory of his travel.....
      Sculpted by Paco Muñoz Painted by Oscar Rodríguez. Nocturna Models Team The Orc
      Looking to the horizon, he inquired the air searching for some familiar scent. Sharpening his ears for a sound that makes him smile again. But no. The silence was like a tombstone and the only thing left around was that friends and enemies blood smell .
      Sculpted by Paco Muñoz Painted by Oscar Rodríguez. Nocturna Models Team Painted by Fabrizio Rusto  The creature 
      So there the strange creature lay, weak on its semblance, strong in it's desires. Its four limbs on the ground and its mind in only one thing. Its look... Was it fear what its pupils spread? Innocence perhaps? Its mocking wace didn't helped either. Not even the greatest torture would have revealed the truth beneath its words.
      Sculpted by Paco Muñoz Painted by Oscar Rodríguez. Nocturna Models Team Painted by Javier González (Arsies Studio) The wizard
      The most important moment of every affront it's the one to stop, rest, check the maps... And smoke. There's no fight big enough that won't let a peaceful instant to think about your next move.

      Hello everyone!
      This collection of models is all aquatic themed. There are minis, monsters, and scatter terrain. There are 12 models in the cores set, and 18 stretch goals planned. That is up to 30 models with a buy-all price of $6. Times are tough right now, so I wanted to make something affordable that is still just as awesome.
       MODEL OPTIONS 
      All models come with a no base, simple base, and decorative base option. A $10 pledge gets you all 3 versions in addition to the successfully tested resin pre-supported version.
         THE CORE SET 
                              THE STRETCH GOALS
      Every $500 is a new mini, monster, or piece of scatter terrain. All mounts will have a saddle and no saddle version. More stretch goals will be added to match the funding level. So feel free to leave comments about what else you'd like to see!

      This is TF's first KS, but they've had several on IGG, and have been in business selling miniatures from their webstore for years.
      TF used IGG because, at the time, KS did not allow Russian-based KS.
       
      All pledges include shipping. €100 or higher levels include free SG's. Painted options are available.
       
      Each pledge rewards a number of unlocked sets. You can always start with the €55 level for five sets, then increase it as sets become unlocked.
