I have been wanting to build tree bases of several trees each for use at home. (Conventions will probably require individual trees for transport reasons.). I finally got around to starting a few test bases today.

This one is approximately done, and uses a base with some extra scenic materials started at a workshop at Gencon last year.

The next two are in progress.  I need to paint the rocks, add some flock, and then glue down the trees.  While I would expect that 10-15 bases will be wanted for at-home gaming, three will have to do for now, and should feature in the current digression project, an attempt to paint/build everything new for a small-ish skirmish game.

The glue is still drying, and there will have to be some paint touch ups, but here are the tree bases laid out on a 30”x22” Kill Team mat, along with some rocks and buildings I’ve completed in the last week.

Add in a hill or two (at most) and some walls or hedges and this is looking like enough for the near-term skirmish game...

Looking good, Rob!   

 

While the Gencon base definitely looks like mdf, are the other two tree bases mdf as well, or foamcore?

Also mdf; I got a bunch with beveled edges from an Etsy dealer last fall. It’s just taken me this long to get started. :rolleyes:

      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.

      Story
      Hello, we are the "Mystery Studio" team, we make high-quality collectible miniatures and terrain mostly on a 28-35mm scale.
      We always had few fantasy elements on the table. And we decided to create them ourselves. In this project, we present to you a large set of fantasy city port. At the moment, we have already made prototypes and first copies of almost all the miniatures, except for a few.
      All models are ready for production.
      We sincerely hope for your support, because the emergence of new, interesting projects depends on the success of this project.

      Story
      We are Ismael and Mishell, in 2016 our passion for scenery and miniatures led us to create Hammerlot Games.
      Whether we use them in role-playing games, board games, or modelling, we love to collect, assemble, paint, and play with them.
      Although we have published several projects at Hammerlot Games that present scenarios to set up undead-themed games, we believe that our passion could be used to create a new range called Battleruins, which focuses on new themes and allows the growth of the brand with the new large format that we have called Masterbox.
      We are excited about the possibilities this new range has to offer and here we are to share it with you!
      At Hammerlot Games we create and produce high-quality, highly detailed resin design elements for use on any gaming table.
      Battleruins, our new scenery range that offers various themes in a Masterbox format, is more than just a celebration of our love for scenery, it's our passion for everything related to fantasy worlds.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also opens the door to other scenery lines of several genres!
      Legends tell that there is a very old city buried in the vast Kalim'ah desert. A city unknown to the vast majority of mortals, few are those who know its name. Some stories of dark shadows and skeletons that watch you from the top of the great temple, accompany this mysterious city.
      At the time it was a great city, prosperous and conquering. Now it's in ruins, a place where some bandits and creatures dwell, fighting to survive, looking for meat to satisfy their hunger and hidden treasures to satisfy their ambition.
      The only thing that remains undamaged over time is the Great Temple, once centre of the city. There are those who believe that ancient and powerful magic protects it, and even claim that it is cursed.
      SCALE COMPARISON
      Resin cast of Temple Stone Ground. Size: 180 x 180 mm The central slab of the temple is modular, it can be exchanged for another piece. Size: 57x 57mm Resin cast of a Large Wall. Height: 68mm Length: 130mm The columns can be repositioned on the temple floor. The miniature is shown for scale comparison purposes only. Miniature: Skeleton GW GW Miniatures are shown for scale comparison purposes only This new format gives you the possibility of having all the scenery you may need for your games in one box.
      With the contents of this box you can assemble multiple combinations. The vast majority of parts are designed to fit together. For example, the walls and columns are the same height, so you can combine them with each other if you wish.
      At the same time, in the center of the Temple there is a space of 60x60mm to place the Huge Slab with the skull carved in stone or the  Guardian Obelisk.
      Battleruins: Temple of the Damned, Masterbox contains:
      1 Guardian Obelisk (5 pieces) 8 Broken Walls 4 Large Walls 8 Stone Roof (for walls) 8 Corners 1 Huge Slab 1 Temple Stone Ground 12 Columns/Pillars 1 Broken Column 4 Stone Roof (for columns) 3 Wooden Bridge   Although like many of us, we never have enough! And that is why we also offer you expansion boxes compatible with the Masterbox. You can complete your battlefield with as many boxes as you want!

      Story
        WOODLAND TRIBE is a 3D miniature Kickstarter that includes a collection of 3D printable characters ready to tell their story on your tabletop role playing or war game.  The high-resolution, high-detail level in each and every one of the figures make them stand perfectly as miniature sculpts on your gaming table or scaled up as huge collectibles for display.  We worked really hard from the very beginning of each concept to the final 3D ready-to-print model in order to create the very best product for you to have fun printing, painting and using it in your favorite game!  As you will for sure enjoy your favourite WOODLAND TRIBE sculpt and its creating process, we are absolutely convinced that it will definitely be the jaw-dropping item on the table!
        The story: 
      The Woodland Tribe were known for their tool trade. Their druids would listen to the land and feel for where an Elkin had fallen, mythical beasts whose antlers grant strange and wondrous powers to those that know how to unlock their secrets. The Woodland Tribe were makers of the finest wares in all the land. They supplied blacksmiths with the handles for their hammers, stocks for hunters rifles, shafts for archers arrows, poles for fisherman. The owners of these tools prized their belongings above all others for they never broke and gave them a sense of well-being.
      Then disagreement broke out among the council of druids and the delicate harmony between the tribes, maintained for a thousand years, was broken, and the world wept.
      The sky broke, and torrential rains fell for a month straight. The lands were divided and war broke out. Now each tribe fights to protect their land and families, their homes and livelihoods. Instead of tools of trade the Woodland Tribe now makes weapons of war, and they do not share.
        Hanola - Druid in Training
      Hanola feels the fury of the storm, the raging river, and the roaring fire in her bones and channels that when she goes to war. But a druid must also find peace. Maybe if there’s an end to the tribe wars she’ll find that too.
      Alliar - Reckless Batter
      Alliar used to play Pineball and was her team’s star hitter. That was before the tribe wars took her husband. Now she still hits, but instead of scoring goals she racks up kills.
      Gha’Rook - Heaving Golliath
      The Rooks have always been seen as beasts of burden, but when the tribe wars began they quickly became living siege weapons. Gha’Rook breaks all manner of things; walls, skulls, backs, arms, legs, hopes, and a few dreams too.
      Lithilla - Shadow Spear
      Lithilla stalks the shadows, looking for easy prey. The weak and old, the unwary. The last things her victims know is her spear piercing them in the back.
       
      Lachial - Holder of Fate
      The pool Lachial watches over is said to hold visions of the past, the future, but never the present. To see the present one need look anywhere but her waters.
        <Removed - nudity>    Grosteppa - Hacking Thespian
      No one in the Woodland Tribe knows where Grosteppa came from. He was a dancer, in another life, but now his frenzied moves no longer bring cheers and applause but the sound of breaking bones and splashing blood.
      Sial - Hacking Razor
      Before the tribe wars, Sial made handles for the razors barbers used. Now she wields a razor made from a Krezok claw, and she cuts throats, not hair.
      Sestan - Beast Tamer
      While the Woodland Tribe’s druids locate fallen Elkin, it’s the beast tamers that go out and collect the horns. Sestan had only worked a year collecting horns before the wars broke out and she longs for a day when she can go back to the way things were. 
      Gnalk - Woodland Elder
      Gnalk was trained as a druid in his youth, but the land began to reject him once he passed the trial of adulthood. The woodlands sensed an inferno of anger deep within Gnalk and would no longer heed his call.
      Gnalk did the unthinkable and trained himself to be a blacksmith. Now with druidic knowledge and trained as a blacksmith, Gnalk has become the leader of the Woodland Tribe. Now the land has once again begun to listen to him, knowing a strong leader is the only way the wars will end.
        Nesk - Eyes of the Eagle
      Brother to Rarl, Nesk once sipped waters from a stream not far from Lachial’s pool. Now Nesk sees more than most and his keen vision grants him the ability to throw his spear with incredible accuracy.
      Rarl - Arms of Stone
      Rarl, brother of Nesk, is unable to speak. Years ago his tongue was cut from his mouth when he spoke out against Gnalk being made leader of the Woodland Tribe. No one knew the nature of their dispute, but now Rarl is fiercely loyal to Gnalk.
      The Stag King
       
      Bones Giant
      Walnta - Breaking Beast
      The Woodland Tribe trained Walntas for generations to carry their wares to neighboring lands. The massive beasts understand basic speech and are typically gentle, but the Woodland Tribe knows how to change that. The druids mix a concoction of water pulled from Lachial’s pool and the visions of past and future drive the Walntas into a rage.
