Kickstart Monday: Big Tanks You can Drive Through Villages

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly blog series that covers two or more crowdfunded projects in the tabletop gaming industry. On this week’s #KickstartMonday we dive into our love of games like Bolt Action with these projects that are sure to supplement those types of games. Of course, you might want to take a look at those buildings in the second project for your fantasy games as well!

The Unknown Tanker

The Unknown Tanker from Night Sky Miniatures promises to provide the backer with STL files for printing Russian and Finnish armored vehicles including tanks for your WW2 battles. These STL’s are scaled for 1/56 scale vehicles (roughly 28mm). These are perfect for games that use that scale figure such as Warlord Games Bolt Action.

While these tanks are themed around the Finnish and Russian battles in the war, you could easily make these part of an army you are building for either faction. The sculpts are clean, well detailed, and should print well on an FDM or resin printer.

If you just can’t get enough tanks for your WW2 games or collections, then this campaign will let you print as many of them as you want.

MDF Laser Cut Half Timbered Houses for Wargames

Every table needs terrain. This project will let you create those European or fantasy tables with towns for your games. This project features MDF Laser Cut Half Timbered Houses for those Wargames produced by Products for Wargamers. These buildings will make for great rural villages, farms, and small towns.

One could imagine their tanks rolling into a rural French village with a table featuring several of these buildings. Of course, I also think of my Dungeons and Dragons game having adventures in and around a town. Perhaps defending the town from a terrifying monster. There is something about amazing 3D terrain that helps amplify any game.

Whether you are using this terrain for a fantasy game, WW2 gaming, or something else we are sure that you will enjoy looking at these great buildings on your tabletop. If you are sure, then you should consider backing this project.

Did we miss your favorite project?

Thank you for checking out this week’s Kickstart Monday! If you find these interesting or want some attention on a Kickstarter or other crowdfunded projects that you would like to read more about please share your thoughts with us via our social media or at our email.

The Best Modern War Gaming Terrain for Your Game Table

BMG in action

One of the biggest challenges for many players when getting started with tabletop miniature war gaming is to find the right terrain. Even as a seasoned war gamer I felt like it was a struggle to find good terrain for my games of Batman Miniature Game. In this article I dive into some of the best places I have found to pick up terrain for my modern war gaming needs.

Modern war game terrain can take several forms. You have to decide if you are gaming in the more urban areas of the world, residential suburbs, or even rural locations. The place in the world becomes a consideration as well. Playing a game set, for example, in the Middle East is much different than trying to play out a game on the streets of Gotham or New York City!

Let’s take a look at a few of the more popular game settings and see who makes great terrain for that environment.

TTCombat Rooftop Accessories Fire Escape

I recently painted the Fire Escape part of the TTCombat Rooftop Accessories MDF terrain kit. I had a blast painting this up and tried some new techniques that I thought I would share to help make this kit pop on the table top.
