In case anyone was worried about pledging before we hit our funding target, we're now at 100% funded, and are less than £250.00 GBP away from opening up our first Stretch Goal (Gothic Themed Sets).

My wife assures me this is better than sliced bread, toasted bread, and also bread & butter.

But it is not better than crumpets.

Frankly, I'm not sure there's much in this world better than crumpets.

Good job TG.
Always enjoy seeing good terrain.
What is their size, as i can't find any reference to them? And your hands might be small or large(😆😆😆 in the vid )
I assumed 6 or 15mm since you posted there but i need to be sure as they seem good enough for 25mm also (perhaps)

Thanks

The panels are 5cm x 5cm. I'd be happy playing 6mm – 15mm (maybe even 20mm) on the gothic style ones, and 6mm – 28mm on the industrial style ones.

I've now activated the Gothic Theme kits Stretch Goal for pledges – which means that four new Gothic Theme sets are now available for ordering!

The next stretch goal will be reached in just £400.00 GBP more of pledges, and will upgrade the new Gothic Theme kit to include rear-side details (a Gothic cathedral-style rose window on the rear of the doorway panel, and double-sided arch details for the archway panel).

Please pledge and drive, pledge irresponsibly, and pledge before you leap.

Apropos of nothing, Hard Plastic Roads are now available for pledging!

picture

The roads set is available in Small and Large sizes, and is compatible with our other scenery panel tiles, so that you can make dense urban areas that fit together seamlessly, or raised roadways using archway tiles, or… whatever else you can think of doing with hard plastic roads, really!

Please enjoy your pledging!

Thanks,

Now for the real question: where does the team come down on the crumpet vs. 'English' muffin controversy?

I love the way that last word has the accent on the second syllable in my head. Very un-'Merican. ;->=

Oh, yes, very interesting terrain; checking if I've an IndieGoGo acct.

This is the most superior breakfast.

We have no current plans to sell them in hard plastic.

Maybe resin.

From the Campaign:


Hello Backers!

So, we have achieved our £2,600.00 GBP stretch goal target of the free Buttresses on the Gothic Theme sprues, hooray!

Now, as the campaign looks unlikely to bring in enough cashola to open up the Cyberhive Theme tiles, I've suspended them until our next campaign (or unless we get a huge run on pledges in the next twelve hours, in which case they'll come back into play?!?), and the next Stretch Goal will now be at £3,250.00 GBP – Upgraded Details for the Mixed Theme Sprues.

In this Stretch Goal, the rear sides of the Industrial style panels, which currently are smooth & plain, will be upgraded to have some cool industrial details on them!

And to help us on our way, how about a fun Top Up extra?

Resin Domes!

These Resin Domes are now available for pledging in two different kit sizes, 4x Domes or 10x Domes. They're sized to fit onto the plastic building tiles, and add some cool aesthetic choices for your gaming table.

As a Top Up, only Backers that pledge for a Plastic Buildings Set of Hamlet size or above are eligible to pledge for them, and there will be no extra postage & packaging charge for Domes.

Thanks for listening!

From the Campaign:

Hello Backers!

First of all, thank you all, for the support that has been shown to the project, it's now time for the TMG team to take an expensive holiday!

No, I'm kidding, now the real work starts! :-)

We'll be finalizing the production order for the new moulds with the tooling factory shortly, and look forward to receiving production samples of all the new designs next month.

In the mean time, I've also activated Indiegogo's "InDemand" system, which means that we can still accept pledges through the Indiegogo page for a period of time even though the countdown clock has stopped which means we could still reach £3,750.00 GBP, and unlock that final Stretch Goal target…

Go on, you know you really need two hundred gothic Resin Domes… Maybe even three hundred!

Yes, definitely three hundred. And fifty.

Also, you want to build a real house out of plastic scenery tiles, and you're fairly sure that charitable donations of gothic buttresses to orphanages is a moral obligation…

…Stay tuned for exciting production updates!

Thanks,

- The Team @ Troublemaker Games
