Crowdfunding Spotlight: Tabletop Towns – Cargo Containers Kickstarter

14 May

 

There’s so much cool stuff for 28mm wargaming these days, it almost makes me want to start the switch back over. The choice and availability for the scale seems to far outstrip the rest that for most, it’s classed as god’s own scale!

Regulars to the site will recognise this latest KS from the tabletop towns stable of products, with this time, something for the wargamers who play modern & scifi. These containers suit the modular nature of the tabletop towns style of simple block shaped buildings and terrain, and I’m sure there will be plenty of takers for them.

Ideal scenics for a modern/zombie setting as well as the plethora of more scifi orientated stuff, and quite asthetically pleasing when grouped, it adds another string to their growing catalogue of portable card scenery. If you’ve been paying attention to the evolution of tabletop towns, I can see great things to come from them in the future.

Personally I’m holding out for some 15mm stuff (city blocks and the like) and I’d be all over them like no ones business, but I think that there’s probably more viability in 28mm in terms of sales from the 28mm folks, but with the growing popularity of 15mm, I still reckon there’s a good untapped market with the 15mm crowd.

As ever I wish them the best with their campaign (even so I know they’ll get full funding)

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Tabletop Towns Castle Kickstarter

15 Aug

If you remember a little while ago, I mentioned the Tabletop townspaper models KS on here. I must say that in my previous post, I did actually make a blooper about the price of the set (I said £20 a set, rather than the real price of £10 for the set of 6)

Well, anyway, tabletop towns are back with the latest addition to the growing range, this time with a castle! I do admit, I’m rather partial to paper terrain as it is, and I like stuff like this, which is a good step up from the last ones. Whenever I see some nice scenics that I like, it makes me want to have a game of oldhammer/warhammer with my orc army, as I an see this being extremely useful for all sorts of scenarios involving castles, walls and the like. This time I think they are really onto a winner, as gone are the rather blocky, box like buildings fro the first set, and now the new KS designs are more intricate and interesting. I do hope that in the future we are going to see Tabletop towns go from strength to strength with more and more varied and interchangable designs (maybe some 15mm/20mm moderns or scifi would be really nice if your listening guys! See the latest Hawk Wargames card city boxed set for what I mean!!)

Seriously, any reservations I had about the first KS is gone with this set, its plain to see that the team have definitely learned and improved upon the whole idea this time, and with extra editions of door details etc printed on creditcard plasticard for extra durability, I can see lots of potential for this as well as bags of replayabilty for tons of different games.

I am sure that this time, the price for a set is £20, but you can still get additional sets of the last KS for £10 by adding it to your pledge, as well as options for resin door details.

With only 18 days to go, if you want to get in on this KS, there’s still plenty of time to get involved, so check out the link below and get your hands on a set!

Ciao!
