Cold War Urban Terrain: 15mm Kickstarter läuft
Terrain für moderne Kriegführung oder WW3 Szenarien soll durch einen Kickstarter finanziert werden.
Dieses australische Projekt will eine komplette Stadt und modulare Strassenzüge im 15mm Maßstab für Gefechte zwischen 1970 und heute finanzieren. Sicherlich nich nur für für “Team Yankee”-Spieler interessant:
A system of road tiles that connect together with a variety of buildings and other structures to build a table worth fighting over.
As a model maker and wargamer who’s just starting into playing WW3 scenario tabletop games, I love the idea of having a more built up modern town location. It changes the table from the terrain we use for the various WW2 games but also allows the use of those terrain pieces we already have in a new way..
My tiles are 300mm x 300mm x 5mm MDF ( 1′ x 1′ x 3/16″ ) with notches to allow connectors to lock the pieces together so when it occasionally gets knocked, the table all stays in 1 piece. I have also made my road surface (grey board) and footpath (3mm MDF) as separate pieces which allows them to be pre-painted before assembly. No masking, and all my sample pieces have been painted with a 100mm roller.
I have gone with 5mm MDF for the tiles rather than the standard 3mm because they are much more stable, will sit flat better and just feel more long lasting. I use 3mm for the connectors which come apart by falling out when you lift tiles up to reconfigure or to pack away.
- X Road Tile – 11,50 AUD
- T-Intersection Tile – 12,00 AUD
- Straight Road Tile – 11,00 AUD
- Blank Tile – 8,00 AUD
The Straight tile comes with 2 footpath options, 2 solid and 2 driveway. Painting the driveway in either road or footpath colours can change how it fits in with neighbouring tiles.
All Road Set pledges come with marking guides to paint road markings with a fine point white paint pen. (Paint pen not supplied.)
I can also supply Road Tiles pre-painted and assembled at a cost of $4.50 per tile. If this suits you, multiply $4.50 x the number of Road Tiles (but not blanks) in your pledge and add to your pledge amount.
Now comes the important reasons for having built up footpaths.The Inserts that come free with each Road Set pledge level allow you to paint one side grey concrete and the other in grass colour. The inserts drop into place over the non road/footpath section and dress the board up allowing you to use your existing structures………
You can also add my insert structure sets to really dress up and create a whole new world for your gaming table. I have been creating a range that allows a whole variety of new very playable structures including multi story offices, modern apartments, Industrial estate, shopping centres (old and new) and individual buildings. These have been designed to fit into the blank spaces between roads.
Due to the cost of postage on these buildings I have had to make them only available as add ons to the Road Tile sets or individually within Australia. Otherwise postage would be expensive, for example $50 – $55 dollars each in postage to the UK.
For overseas backers you can add to your Road tile pledge and I will add any Building kits for no extra postage. I will confirm which kits you want at the backer survey.
If you are interested in the buildings only, outside of Australia please contact me through the comments and I’ll look at individual postage.
