Hi all!

Kickstarter is now live!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/242429396/metro-morph-ready-to-play-modular-card-wargaming-t?ref=user_menu

Different options available across a wide price range, so come check it out!





So I had some spare moments and I'd really been meaning to put together something on the largish size with the card terrain I've been developing...so I came up with this.

Enjoy





Cheers

Cute idea for a video, I liked it, lol.

Serious question, though: What is giving your "card" terrain its body? Those pieces are visibly thick like MDF. Does your stuff come that way?

very bigly.. nice use of Hasslefree figure..

How much weight would that hold? Say, if I loaded up that tower with 20 metal 32mm figures on the top, would it stay stable or collapse?

2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

Your terrain looks good but I would suggest editing the thread title to something more informative.

Looks good! I agree that the thickness of the pieces looks great.

Cheers! Thought it would be a bit of fun, while showing off some of the terrain. Glad you liked it. As to your question, Metro Morph is using thicker card stock like what you might see used in game boards. If you're interested you can check out this development blog

where I go into what each panel is made from.

Thanks for your interest. Yeah, as soon as I saw that mini I thought he needed a tower. He's awesome!

As to weight bearing, I'm going to direct again to our blog where I cover exactly how much weight a structure can bear. Check it out!

Great point! Title renamed to give a better idea of the content. Thanks for the assist.

Thanks mate. See above for more details on the panel thickness. I really think it makes a huge difference compared to regular thin card.

"And while I'm forgiving of one mishap, this string of incidences suggests the problem is with the project managers, not whom they hire, what materials they are using, what language their backers are using, etc. I do notice that entrepreneurs have more self-confidence than other people, and need it to persevere bad luck and obstacles. But this self-confidence can turn into "do nothing wrong" blindness, which prevents these people from admitting mistakes and improving themselves." -- September 3, 2014

They really give me the feel of old school Necromunda buildings, and I love the idea of stickers on the connectors making them blend in.

Thanks again for re posting that here mate. Nice save.

Glad you're liking the look of the terrain. Hopefully it holds some old school aesthetic but with a more modern and detailed twist.

Thanks for the support! I really wanted to make this an affordable option for people to get awesome looking terrain to their table quickly and I'm really happy that you think it is great value for money. Cheers

I have a bunch of Battle Systems card terrain, which I love, this looks very similar. I'll be backing this

Don't know that I have the funds, but definitely interesting --- good looking stuff, and clever with the clips/stickers. Will be spreading the word for the Necromunda friends of mine.

Glad you're liking what we are doing with Metro Morph. The stickers were a real defining moment in the project which I felt turned a great concept into a really awesome one.

And thanks for sharing among your fellow gamers, that really means a lot to me knowing people are going out of there way to help. Cheers!

Also, if funds are tight at the moment, you still might want to consider jumping on our $2 First Founder pledge, you'll get updates on the project and then access to the pledge manager which opens a little after the close of the Kickstarter campaign. From there if you find you can get some cash together you can order the kits then. While it won't help a great deal to getting us funded or achieving stretch goals right now it offers you a chance to not miss out on something you may be interested in.

I have to say I am very excited by this, for me space in storage is a massive consideration, so the fact that this packs flat is a massive plus.

I would urge everyone to check out some of his articles on his website, it gave me loads of information. https://crowdforgestudio.com/

Awesome to see. Where else can you get 3 buildings worth of COLORED terrain on the table for $50 US? It looks like it would go together really quickly also.
