Dungeons & Lasers: Plastic Tabletop Scenery

Recommended Posts

I didn't see this listed so:

 

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudio/dungeonsandlasers-plastic-tabletop-rpg-scenery

 

I received an engineering sample of the product today. They're made of hard gray injection-molded plastic, my guess would be ABS from its hardness and density. The floor and wall ties fit together tightly, though it takes a bit of effort that likely would wear at paint on those surfaces had they been painted. Due to response from earlier sample recipients, the production tiles will be slightly larger than the samples.

How tall are the companions, out of curiosity? 

 

I'd consider going in, but wow those shipping costs are brutal, and no Canadian friendly shipping either. 

 

That and money's tied up with Catalyst and TTCombat Kickstarters at the moment...  Sad there aren't that many dogs for the companions.

 The one included in the sample was a wolf with a sword in its mouth. Its feet stand on the rim of the 25mm circle base and is about 35mm long nose to tip of tail, 20mm tall to the top of its ears. Next to a character figure it looks as big as a normal medium-large dog, which might be a bit small for a wolf but still passable.

 

The figure came in 6 pieces. It assembled fairly easily without glue, but the head pops off at a dirty look.

It's by Archon / Prodos and Bones V is coming, so I'm skipping. AFAIK, Not all AvP backers have received their product (or, rather, credit or compensation since Prodos lost the license). Or let me know if all the AvP backers have received their stuff.

 

Looks like previous KS are being shipped, but review the comments.

Yeah, Archon being involved makes me....  Glad I have a bunch of other things typing up my attention, so my jaw doesn't drop at shipping being almost an extra 45% for those not in the US...

I've received 3 different games from Archon.  Had a few broken fingers in the first game set, but they quickly replaced the models.  Everything else has been great.  The 3rd game is just the first wave so far, but there will be another wave coming.  As far as the games themselves, LOAD is rather dull and I'm probably just going to keep the minis.  Vanguard of War is really a lot of fun.  My group has enjoyed it quite a bit.  Haven't tried VoW Zombies yet, but hope to soon.

It looks beautiful, and lightweight.  I'd probably make up room and corridor sections and leave them mostly intact.  I'm already big into another brand, though, so not likely to back this unless there is a way to just get the animal companions.

There is, for $39 USD.  Something something druid.  Note that you don't get any stretch goals, but you do get all of the companions.

Looks great. But ...

 

- Archon/Prodos: I'm not sure I feel good supporting them

 

- despite my misgivings, I backed LOAD Boardgame (the expansion, where you could get all the new minis as a pledge level). Some of the minis I received were covered with sticky gunk that was all but impossible to remove.

 

- fool me once ... but I backed them again, this time for the Temple/Cathedral. Communications were decent, but not good and the Katsumi Temple is months away from shipping, only the Cathedral is shipping.

 

Still, in for a dollar.

I dunno.  On the one hand, it's a nice price for dungeon layouts, and it's nice that it looks like it collapses down.

 

On the other hand... how often do I run dungeons with sharp right angle corners?  Not very often.  I mean, currently I'm running 'Imprisoned in the God-skull', where there's no right angles anywhere. :)

The sample I received was free of any residue.

      Hi All!
      I happened to come across this project and instantly got sunk into the world of Obsidia.  I thought I would share it here with all the Reaper folks! 
      I'm sorry for bumping my own post a few times.  After backing this project, I learned that these are first time game creators and they were turned down by some high end famous reviewers at the very last minute due to the COVID situation... Which, in my opinion, is super lame!  I don't see how you cannot do a review unless you actually got the COVID!  I hope that this post gets Obsidia to more people which would bring many hours of fun and enjoyable play!
       
      "A dark fantasy tabletop game with spell casting & area control.  The fate of the colony is at stakes; build your empire & rule the realm!"
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joshbeck/obsidia
       
      1-4 PLAYERS, 90 MINUTES
      Players take turns exploring the dark realm of Obsidia by placing terrain tiles to create a dynamic and treacherous landscape. They'll send travelers from their home colonies out to found new towns, battling any enemy players or creatures in their path. Players will also cast spells unique to their colony class in order to gain the advantage. When all of Obsidia’s terrain has been discovered, the class controlling the most towns wins the game.
