Antenocitis Workshop: Forward Base Kickstarter
Der Gelände-Kickstarter von Antenocitis Workshop ist online und sehr erfolgreich!
Und darum geht es:
Forward Base is more than a random collection of scenery products: We set out with a goal of creating a thematic scenery system that would allow the gamer to produce a gaming table that was visually stunning, looked like a believable sci-fi outpost and where the buildings were pre-painted and the resin pre-coloured, to save you time on getting your table up and running and looking great!
So we approached this set with the ideal of having detail scenery at every level, from the microscopes on a laboratory table, through to a collection of buildings which had their own functionalities, but that you could choose how to mix, match and tweak, to suit your needs.
The entire set is compatible with Infinity gaming and 3rd Edition – so certain objects and features are a set size, to give cover to 1 silhouette type but not another, to provide a building structure to hide behind and with scatter to make crossing open spaces as easy or difficult as you chose to make it.
On top of that we wanted to give you, the gamer, the opportunity to make your own add-ons to our scenery: so we are making available all of the scenery-elements that we used ourselves to make Forward Base – lights, doors, windows, hatches, intercoms; all the small components that allow you to change basic structures from boxes into believable buildings…and to thus allow you to alter your own buildings, or to make new ones, to suit yourself.
So Forward Base is far more than a collection of MDF Buildings: it an entire scenery system that allows you to make your own outposts and Forward Operating Bases, to suit your own game scenarios and stories, and one where every piece of scenery and terrain has been created to work with every other piece and all of that to work with Infinity 3rd Edition.
Forward Base is our opportunity to bring everything to market in one go and to give the backer the opportunity to invest in a system that you can assemble and game on without any need to paint, or chose to paint the resin components later, but game with them on the building right away.
Der Kickstarter ist extrem umfangreich und nicht 100% übersichtlich aufgemacht, wir versuchen mal das wichtigste für Euch zusammenzstellen.
Los geht es mit den Gebäudepledges:
Außerdem gibt es Resinpledges für weitere Geländeelemente:
Interessant dürfte auch die Architektur der Gebäude und der verschiedenen Bits sein:
Der Kickstarter wird in Wellen versendet, auf diese Weise soll vermieden werden, dass Antenocitis sich übernimmt oder das aktuelle Tagesgeschäft leidet.
We have existing obligations to partner companies to produce new products each month – we also have our existing web customers, scratch-builders and non-sci-fi folks… all of whom we can’t simply drop to put all of our production capability into a Kickstarter.
As such we have calculated an initial “Wave” of pledges that can be produced within a certain period, without adversely affecting our existing customer base.
WAVE 1 pledges get priority for delivery for March 2015, once those Wave 1 pledges are dispatched it moves to “Wave 2” which has delivery for June 2015.
Interessant sind vielleicht auch noch diese technischen Angaben zum MDF:
We use the same laser-grade MDF as many other manufacturers but we pre-process it before we paint both sides of it. This produces a much more even surface and results in a more even and smooth paint coverage, thereby reducing the problems associated with MDF where the surfaces are uneven and the fibrous nature of the MDF itself “pokes through” the MDF resulting in a surface that looks like it is made out of wood pulp.. rather than a smooth, slick sci-fi surface material.
Some colours work for MDF laser-etching, some don’t. Some colours suit the appearance of “high-tech” materials, such as advanced plastics, and others don’t. We simply couldn’t make every colour available but what we have done is allow you to choose between numbers of different colours for the “Primary colour” on each and every habitat.
During the course of the Kickstarter we will show you building and containers in each of these colours and you can decide what colour you want on your buildings – this colour choice is done after the kickstarter ends, so there is no need to rush or make a choice right now – you have until the post KS survey to see and choose the colours you want.
Der Kickstarter läuft noch 10 Tage und ist schon jetzt sehr erfolgreich. Mehrere Stretch Goals wurden bereits erreicht.
