Australian business SnailFlail is different from all the others crowdfunding terrain tiles. Why? How? SnailFlail’s tiles go up; they’re vertical.
You can use these tiles to track minis as they try and climb the dangerous mountainside or as a display backdrop to show off your painted pieces to the world. The company asked for AU$400 to fund and has more than four times that in pledges already, with three weeks to go, and you can join in from the pledge page.
SnailFlail, aka Matthew Britton, makes their debut on Kickstarter with this project, although they have backed others.
Attention is called to the mounting system that enables the tiles together, allowing minis to be securely placed. The titles are modular so that no two mountainsides need be the same; you can build them differently.
Included are: Base mountain terrain, platforms with jumpable gaps, ladders, bridges and cave entrances. If you choose to upgrade to the Full Pledge Tier you gain the addition of notice boards, platform gears, a hanging cage, shooting targets, embedded posts, signposts, rune embedded doors and rock formations, as well as all the stretch goals that are unlocked.
A pledge of AU$30 (about £34) gets the core files for 3d-printing. The system is optimised for FDM.
Sorry to say, this project is for 3d-printers only. If you want someone else to print the titles for you, you’ll have to track them down.
At AU$60, you get the core and full pledge tiles, greatly expanding the range, and this tier is the most popular.
Showing that you might be able to buy the tiles as ready-made things later, at AU$200, backers can buy the commercial rights and, with that, the permission to sell 3d-prints of these designs.
