Kickstart Monday: Fantastical Townsfolk and a Printable Mansion

Welcome to Kickstart Monday! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects that have caught our eye. We scour over platforms like Kickstarter, Gamefound, and Indigogo to find interesting projects.

This week on Kickstart Monday, while Justin takes the week off, I thought I would take a slightly different route. We’ll look at a couple of projects that will get your 3D Printers humming. Don’t worry, for those of you who don’t have a printer, at least one of these you can order the physical models!

Fantastical Folk – Townsfolk Miniatures

Fantastical Folk – Townsfolk Miniatures by the creator known as the Artisan Troll is a 3D printing project for five unique, fantasy versions of various townsfolk that might show up in your fantasy game. There are options for just the Digital STLs or to order the physical prints of the models!

From the half-orc (or full-orc) butcher, halfing barmaid, or the Dragonborn blacksmith some cool additions help fill out the normally human townsfolk miniatures that are so often in our collections.

Whether you are a Game Master for a Fantasy RPG, a modeler looking to create a cool diorama, or you just think these miniatures are cool, make sure you check out this project.

Mansion #2 – Printable STL Files

Mansion #2 – Printable STL Files from creator Little Dragon Miniatures has created a very cool mansion that can be used in a great many worlds and settings. What’s great about a terrain project like this is its versatility. Whether you are running a fantasy RPG to a modern miniature game, this piece can look good and be functional for a great many games.

This project is only being offered as .STL files, so if you don’t have a 3D printer I apologize but you’ll need to find someone to print this for you. However, this mansion is modeled with the ability to print it with all of the interior rooms. That gives you the chance to model up interiors for whatever your gaming needs are. From a miniatures player perspective, I love the fact that the upper levels have open flat spaces so I can have miniatures continue the fight on those upper levels.

Whether you are an RPG player, Fantasy, Modern, or even a Sci-Fi gamer I think you can find ways to use this project in your games. Make sure you check out this project.

Kickstart Monday: GooeyCube: Blood for the Khan and From the Moon

Welcome to Kickstart Monday! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects that have caught our eye. We scour over platforms like Kickstarter, Gamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest us.

Blood for the Kahn

Our first project this week is the newest offering from the good folks at GooeyCube. The Kickstarter features the Blood for the Khan adventure module and the Mournwood Campaign guide where the adventure takes place.

GooeyCube: Blood for the Kahn

The Blood for the Kahn adventure sends the players on a quest for an ancient object called the Bloodcrystal and face a mysterious figure known as “The Khan”. The adventure takes place in a dark and treacherous forest called the Mournwood which is sure to be filled with monsters and mysteries to test the party’s mettle.

At WiscoDice, we have been very impressed with the quality of the GooeyCube adventures and campaigns, and this project looks to be no different. Included in the Blood for the Kahn adventure are fantastic artwork and handouts including high quality NPC portraits. Full color illustrated regional maps and battle maps are in the box not to mention an assortment of magic and special item cards. The Mournwood campaign guide book expands the work even further with history, lore, monsters, NPCs, and even more artwork and handouts. worth noting that the kickstart has both digital and physical reward options. Ultimately, I think GooeyCube really goes the extra mile to provide a Dungeon Master (DM) with an excellent set of tools to run an exciting game and with

If you are a DM looking for a new adventure or a new campaign setting to dazzle your characters, I would highly recommend checking out the Blood for the Kahn Kickstarter or any other products in the GooeyCube line. To get your hands on this one make sure to back the Kickstarter by March 25th.

From the Moon

Our second project this week is From the Moon a Kickstarter campaign from publisher La Boîte de Jeu.

From the Moon

From the Moon is a sci-fi themed worker placement game where players must develop a moon base and a team of astronauts as one of several asymmetrical factions. The game also boasts a unique “worker crafting” mechanic where you will be customizing each of one of your 3 moon rover miniatures by placing a set of astronaut minis inside of it. With your rovers and astronauts gathering the resources you need you’ll be able to expand and improve your moon base with greenhouses and laboratories. You will also be contributing to the construction and improvement of huge colony ships and their missions which is an important source of victory points.

I like the design of the game components especially the upgradable player boards which look to provide lots of different options for a strategy. The “worker crafting” mechanic is definitely intriguing and the models for the rover and astronaut miniatures look quite nice. If you are ready to strap on your spacesuit and get to work head on over to the Kickstarter page, the campaign will be ending March 23rd.

Is the Geeknson Henry Gaming Table For You? Board Game Table Review

Geeknson’s Henry Gaming Table Ready to Play Spirit Island

The Geeknson Henry Gaming Table is our second gaming table. It’s a beautifully made table but does so at a costly price point. This type of gaming accessory is most definitely a luxury item. Not everyone needs one, and a gaming table like this is not a minor consideration when deciding to purchase one. We hope this review will help guide you in making the decision if this table is right for you.

When we bought our new house, we decided we wanted to invest in our second gaming table. Our first table is a Jasper Gaming Table from Allplay (formerly BoardGameTables.com) This table is an excellent table for all of the reasons in our previous review. However, for our new space, we wanted to have a signature table that more closely matches the wood finishes and look of the room as a whole.
