The Under City: Terrain Kickstarter
Ein Kickstarter für SF,Fantasy & Gothic Gelände – modular und mit mehreren Ebenen.
The Under City is a new gaming system by Wargame-model-mods, it can double your play area and add a new dimension to your games. The set up provides you with a new upper play area supported above your current board using several towers, with your existing board acting as the lower play area.
These towers are very strong with a lattice structure and external cladding, they have large bases making them stable.
I have designed three complete versions for a wide range of games. A medieval / fantasy board, a grim dark / Gothic theme and a scifi / futuristic design, allowing these to be used with a large range of games..
This system is perfect for games such as, 40k, infinity, kill team, necromuda, AOS and other 28mm games.
Some house rules to use this board would be advised, any set with towers come with 2x free lift access points to be placed on the over city above the towers, each tower has an access point on it.
A simple rule such as models can enter either access point to move between the top and bottom tables could be used.
An example would be a model enters the top and then disembarks at the bottom on the same turn, the model has used all its movement and can then shoot or proceed with any abilities as though it had moved.
The main parts of this system are the towers, which you add to your existing table and all you will then need is a sheet of wood or similar to use as the board for your over city. For 2 x 4ft or 3 x 4ft (60 x 120cm or 90 x 120cm) tables I recommend 6 towers, for 4 x 4ft or 4 x 5ft (120 x 120cm or 120 x 150cm) tables 9 towers and for 4 x 6ft tables (120 x 180cm) 12 towers.
The towers are spaced 1ft (30cm) apart on the demos as that is the length of the bridges / platforms. The towers can be spaced differently if you are not attaching the bridges.
The configuration of the tower is also optional they do not have to be lined in a grid as per the examples.
To move between the under city and over city. There is a design of lift for each theme.
Any orders with tower will get two free lifts. Extra lifts can be pledged for if desired. They are in the add-on section.
Which Pledge to go for:
The pledged titled under city are just the bottom parts of this set, The towers / walkways and related parts. There several different sizes.
The complete city sets are both the bottom part of the sets and building for the top.
If you are wanting to have a over city supported by the tower you will need to get a sheet of 9mm mdf or similar. Other sheet materials such as plywood, chipboard and plastic will work.
The contents of the sets are listed below.
KS Exclusive Cathedral:
This huge building is available only during this kickstarter It has a large internal area of 30×60 cms and both the inside and outside feature a raised walkway and the walls feature a huge amount of details and etching. The windows are perfect for making into stained glass windows. The cathedral supports a range of addons / extras see below. On either side of the cathedral there are walkways, these are loose so that they can be easily stored inside. It also means they do not have to be used every time you use the cathedral in your games. The top section of the walkway is removable to allow inside access. Along the outside there are several arches, each arch comes with an optional defensive barricade, these can be left loose or glued in place. Each one has room to fit a figure on a 32mm base. The roof is removable allowing internal access. Inside there is a walkway at the same height as the external ones. There are several doors to provide access to the outside walkway. The floor of the cathedral features a detailed etch pattern. The entrance are flanked by two large towers, access to the upper floors by ladders, these two towers are loose and not attached to the main cathedral. They can be stored inside. The tower and upper floor of the tower is removable to allow internal access. The rear of the towers allow access to both floors of the external balconies.

Medieval & Fantasy:
The medieval design consists of 8 different kits which can make up fantasy towns or villages, there are a range of designs and sizes from small cottages to a windmill and a large mage quarters.
The under city for this theme is a series of wooden platforms and bridges. The towers are able to support raised platforms that bridges and platforms can be attached to.
Gothic & Grimdark:
The Gothic design has 7 kits that are highly detailed and cover a large range of sizes and styles. The buildings support a range of bridges and walkways to connect them together.
The under city is a range of industrial platforms and walkways spread over two raised levels with access via ladders and stairs.
The 8 sided platforms have mounts for 4 items, these can be bridges, steps and other items. Each platform comes with 4 railings that can be mounted in these slots and are removable to swap for other items.
SF & Futuristic:
The scifi design features two very detailed main building deigns. The two designs stack and support a large range of customizations and both have detailed interiors.
The under city is themed around a crime ridden street with several vendors, merc for hire and a bar for those who dare to drink there. The entire area is overshadowed by the wealth of the over city with its underground transport network.
The railway track has three height adjustments so you can place it at the height you want.
