Kickstart Monday: Miniature Painting System and Gaming Tables

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour over platforms like KickstarterGamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing since I was providing these recommendations already. So why not share my thoughts with a weekly blog about projects that interest me?

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

This week on Kickstart Monday it’s time to dive into accessories for the tabletop gaming room. I will take a look at a modular miniature painting system that looks really cool. In addition, a lower-cost modular gaming table that can be assembled to accommodate almost any gaming needs (assuming you purchase the correct components).

The DMG Mini Painting System

The DMG Mini Painting System

The DMG Mini Painting System from Dog Might Games (DMG) features hardwood modular components that come together as a luxury miniature hobbyist painting station. These well-made modular components are magnetic to allow you to customize and grow your miniature hobby area. Ideal for a permanent setup, because of the magnetic components and smaller nature of the modular set up you can pretty easily store and set up this hobby station as you need it.

One of the things that I would recommend you look at with this project is the layout you are able to accommodate with your current painting station. An appropriate amount of planning so that you can add the right number of brush holders, shelves, and other accessories to your hobby station will be key.

If you are like many of us and paint miniatures and terrain then this project will have something that may interest you!

Project Ironside – A Extendable Board Game Table

Project Ironside from Cloud Puncher Games is introducing their take on the budget board game table. The table is made to be modular and can be assembled using additional tables for different sizes and layouts. Another interesting component of this table is that the frame itself is made of pure steel. The table is listed as available in three colors, black, white, and brown.

There are a few options to bling your table. From armrests, the neoprene playing surface, wood toppers, cup holders, and more. All of the standard components you would expect are available for this table. That said, a single table with roughly a 3×5 foot play space is what you will get at the $399 promised budget entry point. When you start throwing in add-ons to this project can really wrack up the price point.

If you are in the market for a game table but want to make sure that this comes in at a budget price this project may have the solution you are looking for!

Build Your Amazing Miniature Hobby Station

It’s been a while since I had to think through building a new miniature hobby station, but recently I moved and sold my old desk and chair. This allowed me to start from scratch and redesign the hobby work area. Like many wargamers, I spend a significant amount of time painting and assembling figures, terrain, and vehicles that I use in games. As such, making design choices that allowed me to effectively use my hobby station were really important. As such, when I went through this process for my new home I thought it would be an excellent time to share some of my thoughts about the process!
