Fantasy Terrain Kickstarter – Launching 27th June

That’s right, you’ve got just one week more to wait!

Our Fantasy Wargames Terrain Kickstarter launches next Thursday at 1pm BST.

This terrain is suitable for many popular 28-35mm miniatures games and RPGs, including Kings of War, Vanguard, A Song of Ice and Fire, D&D, Frostgrave, Mordheim, Warlords of Erehwon, Rangers of Shadow Deep, Age of Sigmar and more.

It is easy to assemble and there is no painting required! It can even be flat packed back into the box for easy storage between games. It is made of pre-printed super-high-density cardstock and is incredibly strong and durable.

To keep it simple we will have just one core pledge level. The Fantasy Gaming Table pledge will get you all the terrain you need for a complete gaming board for just £75. You can tightly pack the terrain into a 3′ x 3′ / 90cm x 90cm skirmish board, or spread it out over a 6′ x 4′ / 180cm x 120cm battlefield for wargaming.

Depending on your preference there will be two different themes to choose from – Village and Battlefield. Of course if you want both you can just pick up two pledges!

We will also have club pledges available with multiple sets at a discount, and retailer pledges with great benefits for the stores. Let your FLGS know about the KS to get them involved.

Battle Systems terrain is modular so you’re not limited to just what you can see in the pictures. The wall sections can be assembled in any combination using our plastic clips, so if you want to build your ruins into a different shape, or add an extra floor to a house, go ahead!

The components are all fully detailed on both sides. Skirmish gamers and RPG players will appreciate that the buildings therefore have fully detailed interiors. All roofs and upper floors are designed to lift straight off so you can access the insides for gaming. When you’re done with your bar fight you can head back outside and the roof will sit neatly back onto the building.

For those of you familiar with our previous terrain, there are a few innovations with this new range that make a big difference.

Primarily, the curves that we’ve incorporated into the roofs of the houses and the rough edges on the ruins give the terrain a much more natural look. We’ve also done a lot of work on the textures to create a 3D look on the wooden detailing, brickwork and roof tiles. These additions instantly make the table more immersive and most people would never believe that it’s made of cardboard!

Like all our Kickstarters your pledge will be filled out with upgrades and freebies unlocked by stretch goals throughout the campaign – the images above are just the starting points! We’ve got loads of exciting stuff planned including Ruined Houses, a Wizard’s Tower, and maybe even a whole new pledge theme!

Of course we need your help to get there so hopefully we’ll see you all on the KS next week – your support will be very much appreciated!

To make sure you don’t miss out, sign up to our newsletter HERE and we’ll send you an email when the campaign goes live.

Until then, happy gaming!

Fantasy Wargames Terrain in Detail

Last week we announced our upcoming Fantasy Wargames Terrain Kickstarter – you can check our our previous blog HERE.

All of Colin’s time recently has gone into painstakingly adding all the fine detail to the new buildings, from the basic textures, to adding all the immersive detail, to precisely working out all the cuts and slots so everything fits together.

Last week we asked you what you wanted to see and you had some amazing ideas – the workload to make everything on that list could have been quite overwhelming! Luckily we already had about two thirds of it in the plan :-). We’ve taken the best of the rest and built it into our schedule over the next few weeks so we can have the designs ready for the Kickstarter.

What you’ve seen so far is just part of it. Even when the KS is underway we won’t stop working – we’ve got so much we want to get done!

Another thing that’s really important for our terrain is that it can be used in many different ways for all sorts of gaming.

Firstly these new fantasy buildings are modular just like our existing terrain ranges. The wall sections fit together with our plastic clips in any combination, so you don’t have to always build everything the way we’ve done in the pictures. If you want to have a go at building Ankh Morpork’s Tower of Art, go ahead!

Secondly these buildings have fully detailed interiors. The wargamers out there may not use them but will appreciate the strength that the interior floors give to the buildings. The skirmish gamers and RPG players on the other hand will be able to make full use of this feature. The roofs and upper floors lift right off so you can access the insides.

If you want to see this terrain in person before the Kickstarter, we will have it on display at UK Games Expo this weekend. You can come and see us on stand 1-1034. As well as the new terrain we will also have deals on our existing ranges and demos of Core Space along with all the latest releases!

Fantasy Wargames Terrain Preview

Can you believe it’s been almost 5 years since our Fantasy Dungeon Kickstarter? Since then we’ve made our way through the Urban Apocalypse, improved on our original designs with new Sci-fi terrain, and even tackled a miniatures game with Core Space recently launching to rave reviews.

When things finally died down Colin almost ran out of things to draw, and we couldn’t let that happen! We thought it was time to revisit our fantasy range, so last week we revealed this:

Looks pretty awesome, don’t you think? We’re really proud of where we’ve got to with this range so we wanted to share some details.

The next Battle Systems Kickstarter will launch in summer 2019 and will kit out fantasy and historical battlefields of all sizes, from 2×2 / 3×3 skirmish tables to full-on 6×4 wargaming tables. Like our other products it works with all 28-35mm miniature ranges and requires no painting!

It can be used for Kings of War, Frostgrave, Mordheim, Warlords of Erehwon, A Song of Ice and Fire, Age of Sigmar, and many other games.

We will have different pledge options to suit different games, including a village with a selection of houses and a battlefield set with ruins and barricades for cover. There will be roads, walls, towers, and all the usual scatter terrain you’ve come to expect from Battle Systems to bring your table to life.

We’ve got plans for more pledge options down the line too!

What Do You Want To See?

The design work is still ongoing so we can make this a truly incredible range. We’re bursting with ideas of our own but we want your input too. Let us know in the comments below what fantasy or historical terrain you would like to see in the pledge, and we’ll try our hardest to get all the best ideas in there :-).

More details to follow in the coming weeks. To stay up to date, sign up to our newsletter HERE.
