There’s been no shortage of innovation in the world of tabletop terrain and scenery in recent years. Kickstarter is usually the shop window, and Mythroll Armory’s TileFormers are a good example.
These titles click together with magnets, and their modular design means you can quickly snap buildings and dungeons into existence. The campaign asked for CA$6,360 to fund and with three weeks left to run has earned more than CA$44,000. You can see the latest total and pledge at the pitch page.
The tiles have different designs on alternative sides so you can build a variety of constructions. Pledge levels determine how many of which types you get. The basic elements are;
- Stone squares
- Stone rectangles
- Stone triangles
- Wood squares
- Daub squares
- Grass straight roads with plain grass on the opposite side
- Grass corner roads with plain grass on the opposite side
- Clay tile squares with thatch on the opposite side
- Clay tile triangles with thatch on the opposite side
- Reusable decals (doors, window, torches, etc)
- Zippered carrying cases
There are some limited deals still available at the time of writing, but the CA$90 (about £52) pledge gets you a quota, which you can top up, mix and match the tiles you need.
Alternatively, a CA$160 gets you the 75 pieces needed to build the Phelenau Hall model. You don’t need to pre-design your buildings, get all the tiles necessary but don’t get any flexibility.
Pledge levels go much higher, including one limited option that gets you an impressive 2230 pieces at a discount. That’ll set you back nearly CA$3,000.
