From Raging Heroes: Warstages Kickstarter

From Raging Heroes a very interesting Kickstarter is about to launch from the company that gave us the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy. This is a very customizable set of terrain, and its worth checking out.

So far, the most common question about this Kickstarter is: "What is it made of ?"

During the one-year journey in the development of WarStages, Raging Heroes team tried A LOT of things, both technically and artistically. And they came to a conclusion that may surprise some of you: the most effective, good-looking, affordable solution to build our large-scale epic scenery was the use of high-quality, super-dense coated color-printed cardboard.

But hey, what are card board unique set of qualities? "
  • First it looks awesome! Right out of the box, you get a super detailed building full of complex textures, details and color. It allows for a crazy level of details.
  • No need to paint! Painting such huge scenery could be on the near side of forever. We've done awya with that.
  • It ain't flat! You might think that it would look somewhat flat, but as we first designed all the parts in 3D and then enhanced them with loads of photographic textures, it looks incredibly deep and tri-dimensional. On top of that, we use many visual tricks in the assembly of the structures to give them even more volume.
  • Easy to put away: Since most parts are not glued together, you have a lot of freedom in how to put it away once you're done gaming. You can completely break it down, or just disassemble the largest parts and keep the rest ready to go for your next battle. An under-bed plastic sweater box or two should do the trick.
  • It's quite light: Card board wins hands down compared to resin, plastic or MDF.
  • It's cost-effective: We wanted to make sure that tis epic scenery would remain affordable. Sure, like always with printing, you need large runs to keep cost reasonable, but once above certain quantities, the kits become very affordable compared to their actual size.
  • It's a very strong material: To our surprise, it is also extremely strong and resistant! A single sheet of card board may not feel like a strong object, but once it is assembled into a structure, it is super robust and can withstand heavy loads, in any case more heavy than any large mini you might place on it. If you are unsure about that, just browse the internet and see for yourself how people build real furniture (and even houses!) in cardboard...
