I added battle damage to the Farm House, Barn and
only "bad" thing about this set is I did not paint the back of the
doors which can be seen in the pictures. I tried to choose pictures
where this over sight is not too obvious. I also painted the interior
all black, so it is hard to see some of the damage. Extra glue may be
needed on the barn roof due to the missing/damaged roof pieces to keep
Notes on this design: Paint the inside of the farm
house roof before gluing together, it is way easier! Do not bother
spending a lot of time getting the loft of the barn's wood "just right"
if you will end up painting it black in the end. I also installed the
loft backwards when I painted it, the access hole is over the double
doors (front left) and was suppose to be in the back right corner. Not a
big deal, but something to look out for. I could rotate the loft but
then my burnt paint lines would not match.
I had fun putting the
doors together and painting them. I was trying to make it look like a
small bomb went off in the barn, just barely blowing the doors open.
I did not detail both sides of the bridge in the picture but will for the final product.
to the barn: I removed the extra attachment holes that were not used in
the previous design of the barn. The roof now is held on by four plugs
instead of 8 to make it easier to line up and assemble.

This update is to show some of the other pieces I
have made and painted (some of the pieces are in the Farm Set Kickstarter). The
building is modeled off of a 1940 small apartment building that went
through WWII. The original plan for this building was to have it start
the game complete then as mortars/tank fire hit it, replace the pieces
to show the damage to the building. The building is five pieces (after
assembly): base, door (1st floor), second floor, third floor and roof.
windmill is windmill #4 it has a stone texture and is three pieces.
The bottom, middle and top. The doors also are removable in this
windmill. The ladders go inside the windmill to climb between the
different levels, in the picture the ladders were used to get to the
platform. Removing the layers would disturb the models in it so I have
redesigned it again (Windmill #5, not shown).
The outhouse was
design #2. The door swung inward but the inside piece would not allow
the door to fully open so I redesigned it to the Kickstarter outhouse,
which has the door that swings outward and extended the base and roof.
trees and bridges are in the Kickstarter. The foot bridge I painted to
look dirty and the large bridge I painted to look warn, like lots of
tanks or wagons had driven over it.
Trees Not Finished

Here is a close up of the three different sizes of bridges. The small
bridge is about 2" wide. The medium bridge is about 4" wide and the
large bridge is about 6" wide. I currently only have the 4" and 6"
bridges in the shown style. The 2" bridges have three different

War game terrain for table top games. (Farm set - house, barn,
windmill, bridges & more for Warhammer 40K, Call of Cthulhu,
D&D, RPG, Heroclix.)
Example of painted set.
This Kickstarter is for the design of wargame terrain sized for 28mm
scaled models. This is my first set for mass production, a farm themed
set. I try to design nice looking pieces that are easy to paint and use.
this Kickstarter is successful, I hope to begin design work on
additional themed sets and custom pieces. I already have a laser
cutter/engraver, so the funding will go toward software, upgrades,
materials (for rewards and more prototypes) and the shipping and
handling (postage, shipping boxes, envelopes, packing materials, etc) of
the reward level items.
I find stretch goals to be fun! So tell your friends! Stretch goals will be for pledges $75

Deluxe Set + Damaged Basic Set:
Painted and Finished Deluxe Set:
I will assemble and paint this set just for you! Then lovely package
and ship it to you so you can use this right away! This will all be
done in plenty of time for Christmas!
I will also assemble and paint any stretch goals that are met!
will need to know some info before painting this wonderful set for
you. Let me know what color brick you would like on the bridges,
farmhouse and windmill. (Brown, red, mix of brown and red brick,
artist's choice) What color to paint the barn siding. I will paint all
the wood, wood colored unless told otherwise. The greenhouse will be a
gray and tan unless asked for a different color. I will need to know
what color to paint the inside of the house (walls & floor), barn
main floor and loft inside of the roof. The fence will be painted white
unless otherwise directed. Also will need to know how you would like
the bridges painted, like they were just built or lovely used (like in
Sorry, about the high shipping costs but to package this set so it will
not get damaged in shipment there is no way to put it into one (or two)
flat rate boxes. I was not going to offer this reward because of the
high shipping costs but was asked to.
Heroclix farm set:
All the items will be shipped unfinished
and unassembled, they should be sanded with 220 grit sand paper for a
smooth finish. I like the rougher look so I just paint mine without
sanding. The material I normally use is Baltic Birch which glues
together wonderfully with superglue, Elmer's glue or normal wood glue. I
prefer Elmer's Clear glue.
Since most people do not read or look at the instructions there will
only be notes to be aware of if we find a certain part hard to put
together. I am looking into the possibility of making assembly videos,
but most of the items are very easy to assemble.
dollar spend as a Backer you get a say in what terrain I work on next.
$1=1 vote. Current themes the local gamers are bugging me to make are
fantasy castle set, futuristic bunker, wild west village, dungeon set,
1940s town/city and ice world (frosted acrylic). I'm also considering
markers, trays and card game accessories. I would even be open to other
suggestions. (I will send out a survey after the project is funded to get your vote.)
I thought it might be fun to show some of the windmill
prototypes I have made. For some reason the first design never comes
out right, it always needs some tweaking to make it great! I have made
and tweaked 6 windmill prototypes. I have added some notes on the
different designs. The best two are windmills #3 and #6.
learning experience, hexagons are not equal sided when using the
hexagon tool. The blades were way too small and the lower access does
not allow tightening of the thumb screw. The brick design was chosen to
match the farm house.
Hexagon now has equal sides
and the top part is closer to round. Doors are off set. No design was
added to save on laser time and cost.
even and there is an access to tighten the thumb screw! (Though it can
be a challenge to install the thumb screw after gluing the windmill
together but it can be done!) The doors are for looks and do not open.
This is a great terrain piece! The inside is empty so no 3rd floor,
but this is the quickest and easiest windmill to assemble!
Windmill #4 (is really labeled #5 in the first picture, sorry!)
asked for a windmill that could have a fight scene in it. This
windmill has doors that open and three levels. The walls lift off (of
the top two levels) to a flat surface. The bottom balcony lifts off the
bottom section. When the top two levels are removed it can knock over
the minis. Windmill has the cobble stone design on it. This windmill
is also harder to assemble and not as sturdy as I would like.
Windmill #5 (is really labeled #4 in the first picture, sorry!)
of the walls & roof being removed to access each level, now only
the tops come off of each level. The doors can be removed, the third
level door was removed since access to the thumb screw is easy just lift
the roof off! There is access holes for a ladder, there is only a door
on roof the rest are open holes. This design was not as sturdy as I
would have liked,the blade screw attachment was too close to the roof,
because the thumb screw has to be horizontal for the roof to fit on
Windmill in pieces.
Bottom of windmill
I love this Windmill! Windmill #6 has
recessed openings for more play potential on each level (the doors are
not recessed.) The blade attachment was lowered so the thumb screw can
be tightened and the blades still rotate! There is a small "ring"
around the top two levels making this a much sturdier design. This
model has the "old brick" design on it. The bricks are not as uniform
as the brick design on windmill #3 & #1, this redesign of the bricks
was from a suggestion. There are added imperfections to the “old
brick” bricks. (The difference between the bricks maybe hard to see with these small pictures.)
