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.

      Story
        I've been running, playing, and creating RPGs and miniature games for decades. After being involved in this world for so long, I recently wondered just how much time I've spent loading, transporting, and setting up terrain for conventions, store demos, and regular game nights. It was...a lot. Sometimes you just want to get to the game! I've also heard time and again that people are interested in RPGs and miniature games, but don't have the time to create or paint terrain or the space to store it. Why should that be an obstacle to great gaming? With ease, cost, and limited storage space in mind, Rattrap Productions is excited to share our RatMat Scenic Packs--full landscapes composed of 2mm punchboard and sized for 25 mm to 32 mm figures. RatMat Scenic Packs are designed to assemble/ disassemble quickly and easily, store in a minimum of space, and cost a fraction of what you could spend on buying or building your own bulky terrain.  
      Our Forest pack will cover an entire 2x2 battle map, yet breaks down to fit in a few small, resealable plastic bags. I actually store 5 entire Scenic Pack sets of in a single cube of a Kallax shelf with room for a few more. I am so excited about and confident in these packs that I wanted to provide potential backers with proof of concept—I created our initial set, the Forest Pack, and paid to have it manufactured and shipped. I wanted to be absolutely sure that our production and shipping partners could handle both aspects in an efficient manner and that the finished product would meet my expectations, as a lifelong gamer with high standards. I have been thrilled with the results. The Forest Pack—composed of the same material and with the same ideals as the other packs—is sturdy, can be quickly assembled/disassembled, and stored in practically no space. The Forest Pack will be an option to pick in our Pledge Manager (though it will ship to backers with the remainder of the packs).
      RatMat Scenics: Forest Pack I Each Scenic Pack will contain 5-7 sheets of 2mm punchboard. All pieces are printed on both sides and sized for 25mm to 32mm miniatures, with the goal to provide enough terrain per scenario in each pack. This Kickstarter is to expand on the existing Forest Pack, by adding the Ruins I, Wharf, and Warehouse packs. In the Pledge Manager you will also be able to select our already released Forest Pack I (it will ship at the same time as any other packs you select). 
      We're excited by the potential items we may also add into packs along the way, based on engagement and input from our community. If we start going well beyond the stretch goals--don't worry!--there are so many potential packs that can be added to the Rattrap Scenic Packs that you could end up with enough scenic pieces to cover your whole campaign.

      Brought some painting models for vacation.  Finished the Hell Hound last night, didn’t WIP it.
       
      Had Yephima on my shelf of shame for a long time.  If it ends up 1/100 as good as the studio version I’ll be happy.  Plan on light blue skin and silvery hair, like the Bestiaries suggest.  Other than that, not sure...

       
      Here she is primed with Brown Liner.  That’s gonna take some work to get the skin tones brighter.
