FireBucket Games has until now been designing resin scenic bases and terrain, but has finally brought their skill with machine tools directly into the business with a new line of modular, 12″ square, laser cut, HDF city tiles and stackable buildings designed to provide a dense urban environment for skirmish games.
T5: (Tactical, Topographical, Table-Top Terrain): Tile City is a KickStarter project that is scheduled to go live February 3, 2014.
- High-Density Fiberboard (HDF) is durable, Non-toxic, Biodegradable (if for some odd reason you wanted to compost your gaming terrain), Takes and holds paint, Adheres to most glues (wood glue, white glue, PVA, super glue, gap-filling super glue, silicone adhesive)
- Designed for 28mm miniatures, but can work up to 35mm or even 1:48 scale.
- Hidden construction tabs (no unsightly joints!)
- 12″ (304mm) square tiles, 1/4″ (6.4mm) thick.
- 6″ (152mm) increments with which to build city blocks.
- Interlocking along edges to prevent separation.
- High-precision detail engraved on all visible surfaces; even the side of the curb.
- Gives impression of depth, without interfering with game play.
- Vertical cuts along the sidewalk edge add to impressions of realism.
- 14 different tiles designed so far.
- Combine any number of tiles to make your city as large as you want.
- Two-lane roads with sidewalks on both sides.
- Place roads side-by-side to make four-lane roads.
- Easy to build.
- Potential for more aesthetic options and more accessories as this project progresses.
- This name is brought to you by the minister of redundancy from his office, the ministry of redundancy.
- 6″ x 6″ (152mm) or 6″ x 12″ (152mm x 304mm) octagonal footprint.
- 3″ (76mm) tall, per level.
- Octagonally indexing (can be stacked with levels facing any of eight ways)
- Peg-in-hole interconnection between levels assures correct alignment every time and allows levels to be separated without sticking together.
- Designed to build towers.
- Can be stacked as high as you want; the flat base will remain stable as long as the surface it is on is flat and level.
- High-precision detail engraved on all visible surfaces, even inside, with multi-layer lamination for added visual depth.
- Central GravElevator (not a real anti-gravity engine) for moving between levels.
- Doors (removable)
- Windows (at least two sizes!)
- One MBBM set contains: (1) MBBM66: a 6″ x 6″ building with flat roof, (1) MBBM612: a 6″ x 12″ building with flat roof, (1) balcony, (1) support column, (2) roof fillers, (20) rooftop railings, (4) doors, (4) elevators.
- Potential for more aesthetic options, acrylic panes for the windows, and more accessories as this project progresses.
- 4″ (101mm) long
- 2″ (50mm) wide
- 2″ (50mm) tall
- Downward-hinged door on the front.
- Enough interior space for two models on 40mm bases.
- Removable roof (to get to the models mentioned above)
- Able to be stacked facing any direction and still interlock so they won’t slide off each other.
- Potential for 2″ long, 6″ long, and windowed versions as this project progresses.
