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.

I haven't had any sticky residue on any of the minis that I've received from them.  But maybe I just got lucky.

      Hello Everyone :)  In a few days time I will be attempting to set a new world record for the worlds largest modular dungeon tile set. I hope to see you there for this latest project of mine to help me make history. :)

      Here's the finished product.  WIP here:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88136-blzeebub-builds-another-bird-boxbegin/&tab=comments#comment-1870132  I made this as a wedding gift for some friends.  I think they'll dig it and maybe you will too.
       
      More moss!  I added a stained bottom for easy attachment to a post.  I also decided to enrich the wood of the door and slapped some wood stain on it for depth of color.  The metal I roughed up a bit with sandpaper and sprayed with a solution of salt, hydrogen peroxide, and vinegar to speed oxidation.  Though the ridge cap is galvanized steel and the chimney is aluminum, so who knows what that oxidation will actually look like!  Questions, comments, critiques always welcome!

      Project includes STL files for people rich enough to actually afford a 3d printer and, miniatures at a much more affordable level for those of us poor peasants who cannot afford such exorbitantly expensive machinery (or choose not to).

      12 STL files (including 7 dragons) for 20$ or resin prints for a varying amount of money if you haven't got a 3d printer yet.

      So...gonna make this a WIP though it's technically done as of yesterday.  At the risk of becoming the "birdhouse guy" I opted to skip the registry of household (comm)oddities and make a bluebird nesting box for my friends' wedding.  I think they'll appreciate it.
       
      I wanted a kind of whimsical, cottage style--the crazy roof being the focus.  After much perusing of images of "fairy house," "magic cottage," and the like I settled on a basic design.   I used a jigsaw to cut out the front and back walls from 1/2" plywood.  Side walls are similarly non-square.  Wood glue and finishing nails later and I had a frame.

       
      While that dried I soaked some 5mm (1/4") plywood in hot water long enough to soften it and bent it slowly onto the frame, clamped it for a day, and glued and nailed.  Repeated for the other side.  The two sides of ply were differently happy to take a curve so I acquiesced to the wood.  Some peeling of the outer ply occurred, but later I scraped that off.
       
      For the rocks, I took some "river pebbles" from the local big box hardware store, rinsed off the dust and began applying with heavy duty landscaping adhesive (might have actually been Liquid Nails brand--I've used it before for the same effect).  Let these cure and catch up with other life for a few days then on to the other sides!
