Loke BattleMat's "The Wilderness: Set of 2 Battle Map Books for RPG" : Free decals unlocked!


Recommended Posts

Loke BattleMats is running a campaign for their third "Set of 2 spiral-bound Battle Map Books for RPG", after Dungeons and Town and Taverns. 

Loke has finished shipping their previous KS, and has fulfilled all six of their previous KS. The Wilderness Battle Map Books follow the same format as their previous two. 

Loke BattleMats will also have digital maps for VTT at a low price, including freebies.

Previous SG's included free vinyl cling sets (reusable stickers) and Little Book (supplementary maps).

 

I have a review of their Town and Taverns Battle Map Books on RPG.net, as well as some other of their maps, Dungeon Little Book, and vinyl clings.

I have their towns and taverns, the dungeons, the giant book of battle maps, as well as 2 of the little books of maps and they’re wonderful. I use them all the time. 

 

i’m definitely going to back this.

48-hour free PDF

 

Remember that with two books, you can place the books side-by-side differently to create new playing areas -- and will get twice the clings!

 

A second "Little Book" is a good choice, since it's only $10 and adds to the variety of maps you can make with this and previous map books.

Combat Twist 150-card add-on is $30. Not entirely sure about it, especially since Loke's going to toss in a 100+ Encounter PDF free later on.

Loke also has a free 5e adventure in most pledge levels.

 

I've backed their previous two book KS and their customer service is great. This project is a little larger, with the card-add on, GM screen, hardback book, and wooden die.

 

Loke Battle Mat accessories are also available retail, and I expect you should be able to get these items retail as well. The KS is *very* good with the digital freebies.

I did the early ‘extended’ to get the little book, which I think is also worth the $9US. 
 

Not thrilled to see they’re fulfilling around Christmas because of the trash USPS nowadays but, one can hope.

I hate the "Forest" maps that just look like medical photos of Kermit's zits, and think that in general these maps are much less impressive than their previous campaigns', but I've bought all their other books so may as well stick with them for this one. Hopefully there will be some nice stretch goals.

Yeah, the "stumps" remind me too much of the logging days in the US.  :upside:

 

I expect the KS to hit the free Wilderness Scenery decal pack SG. Cover up those naked trees with some foliage! Or just drown them under a lake. 

 

You get one for *each* set in your pledge. So Double Wilderness and Wilderness Master will get two sets of decals!

My plan for all the stump maps is to make use of my trees from Monster Fight Club, as well as Dwarven Forge, in addition to terrain pieces from both companies that act as foliage to ‘spruce’ it up. Any ‘stump’ left visible will be an actual stump and the trees I have will dress up the 3d elements and not make it look like a massive logging operation. But it also gives me the option to horrify a Druid or ranger and just put the map down to indicate some kind of massive deforestation.

Sounds good, Adrift!

 

Lobby in the latest update comments for a forest with treetops instead of stumps :

£175k - The plain grids at the start of each book are replaced with a peril filled Wilderness Map!

Have these guys made their older books available via pledge managers in the past? I haven’t gotten in on any of their prior projects but I might be interested in their older stuff as well as the wilderness.

They have. I bought all their books at once in their last KS.

You can also see if the books are available retail. Lower shipping costs if you hit free shipping. 

 

I highly recommend the 2x2 double-sided Battle Board for the price.

Yes they have made other books available via pledge manager in the past and I got down with that action in the last KS. My plan is to buy a second set of The Dungeon map books in the PM this go around.

Who wants 340 pages of 1000+ free encounters? :lol:

 

Sure, it's a PDF, but you can print out what pages you want, rather than lug around another book. Dungeon, town and tavern, and wilderness encounters.

 

A hardback dead tree version is available as an add-on (£22) or as part of the higher pledge levels (£100 and £120).

 

Or if you live digitally, it's part of the £8 pledge, with a ridiculous amount of virtual content. Physical product will be available retail, so, if you're not sure, pick this pledge level!

      Hi Chums! Sorry I left it so late to post, I have been ill the whole Kickstarter! Just scrambling now in the last few hours - despite this though it's going brilliantly!
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/badsquiddogames/women-of-ww2-soviet-russia-28mm-miniatures

      We are close to the last stretch goal now - an adoring fan for our guitar player! Yes you heard that right!
       
        

       


      Unlocks have been:
      Winter Tank Riders Pack A
      Winter Tank Riders Pack B
      Winter Tank Command
      Winter Tank Hunters
      Dzhulbars the Mine Hunting German Shepherd with handler
      Kneeling Sniper Team in snow suits
      Lyudmila Pavlichenko
      Anti Tank Rifle Team
      Traffic Controllers
      Winter Advancing Command
      Dancers
      Guitarist
       
       
      The Eastern Front is obviously a very grim setting, and whilst fascinating to research, it can get very heavy! This range has a much less jolly feel than the last load of Home Front British miniatures, for obvious reasons (being more front line based) but I wanted to add some endearment in there to make people smile. And when I research these projects, the people definitely make their way into my heart through the memoirs and photographs. So I'd like them to be having a bit of fun.

      So far we have the accordion player and dancers, and these will fit brilliantly with them to make a nice camp fire diorama (check out our camp fires too!).
       



      Cheers all!

      I didn't see this KS listed after a quick search.  I like the painters, and I like HD, but there's just so much free stuff out there now...
       
      Miniature Painting Masters

      NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! This series is perfect for beginners and professionals alike. Our goal is to help you quickly improve your skills by building upon each subsequent lesson. Each video will introduce new skills and techniques to help you quickly master the art of miniature painting. By end of the series - you will be a miniature painting GOD!

      I have some of Zabavka Workshop's resin but haven't played with any of their .stl files.
       
      Wargame Resin & .STL Base Toppers
       
      We know creating bases for miniatures is a struggle for many of us, especially when it comes to armies.
      It's a hell of a work...
      We realized that we are not alone thanks to the feedback from the backers of 2 previous projects on Kickstarter and our community.
      We share your pain and that's why we decided to create 100+ Unique Resin and 3D Printable (.STL) Base Toppers for our community.
      For this campaign, we've prepared 10 thematic sets of base toppers and several sets of elements for decoration.
      And this is just for the start, the rest depends on the speed of unlocking stretch goals😉
       
      We've specially designed them in the form of toppers to reduce the cost of printing for you.
      Because the cost of printing a round base is more expensive than the cost of buying a black plastic base.

      Another 7 days KS by Medusa Minis. I have been quite happy with their previous campaigns. 9 pounds for the whole set or 25 if you missed the previous orc sets.
