Kickstarter: T5 Sci-Fi Terrain
Ein KS für Sci-Fi City Terrain.
Crowdfounding? Check. Terrain? Check. Laser geschnittenes HDF Gelände? Check.
Und wir sind mitten drin im täglichen Kampf um ein Stück vom
großen Kuchen des Tabletop-Geländemarktes.
Hier möchten FireBucket Games mit ihrem urbanen Science Fiction Gelände landen.
Mit T5: (Tactical, Topographical, Table-Top Terrain): Tile City wollen FireBucket Games einen Laser-Schneider finanzieren um ihre Projekte in der eigenen Werkstatt umsetzen zu können. Dabei geht das Team schamlos selbstsicher zu Werke:
Ultimately, we get a laser cutter and international recognition as a team who knows how to use it.
This project is about making cool terrain to enhance the gaming tables of the world, but we will be using most of the money to purchase the tools that we need to do all of the manufacturing in house. After we’ve fulfilled our obligations for your rewards, we will still have the tools to use on future projects.
In diesem Kickstarter können verschiedene Produktgruppen erworben werden.
High-Density Fiberboard (HDF) is durable, Non-toxic, Biodegradable (if for some odd reason you wanted to compost your gaming terrain), Takes and holds paint, Adheres to most glues (wood glue, white glue, PVA, super glue, gap-filling super glue, silicone adhesive)
Designed for 28mm miniatures, but can work up to 35mm or even 1:48 scale.
Hidden construction tabs (no unsightly joints!)
T5: Tile City
12″ (304mm) square tiles, 1/4″ (6.4mm) thick.
6″ (152mm) increments with which to build city blocks.
Interlocking along edges to prevent separation.
High-precision detail engraved on all visible surfaces; even the side of the curb.
Gives impression of depth, without interfering with game play.
Vertical cuts along the sidewalk edge add to impressions of realism.
14 different tiles designed so far.
Combine any number of tiles to make your city as large as you want.
Two-lane roads with sidewalks on both sides.
Place roads side-by-side to make four-lane roads.

Potential for more aesthetic options and more accessories as this project progresses.
Modular Building Building Modules (MBBM)
This name is brought to you by the minister of redundancy from his office, the ministry of redundancy.

3″ (76mm) tall, per level.
Octagonally indexing (can be stacked with levels facing any of eight ways)
Peg-in-hole interconnection between levels assures correct alignment every time and allows levels to be separated without sticking together.
Designed to build towers.
Can be stacked as high as you want; the flat base will remain stable as long as the surface it is on is flat and level.
High-precision detail engraved on all visible surfaces, even inside, with multi-layer lamination for added visual depth.
Central GravElevator (not a real anti-gravity engine) for moving between levels.
Windows (at least two sizes!)
