Bit of a hardware hack required today as our vinyl cutter controller failed and we are having trouble finding a replacement.
Once again I would like to start by thanking everyone for their support, including everyone who has pledged and shared the project.
It has been a busy week in TheXLC HQ and a steep learning curve about running a Kickstarter! We never expected such a response in such a short time or the enthusiasm everyone had for our designs!
We can confirm that all the designs are being re-worked as we speak to have removable windows and doors. Some of these are very simple but some are a little trickier! We have also been discussing what to do about the inside surfaces. Some are already printed on both sides so we will have a simple printed texture for the inside. For the ones that are only printed on the outside we will, at a minimum, colour them grey to roughly match the exterior. As we progress with this we will keep you updated.
We have finalised the design for the gates and are please to present the final piece!
We will be adding this as a pledge on its own at £12, but if you have pledged for anything that includes the security walls pack we will include the gates for an extra £8. Just increase your pledge accordingly and we will request the pledge details at the end.
At the time of writing we only have £809 to go to stretch goal 1!
We are still looking for stretch goal 2 so keep the ideas coming!
Thank you again for all your continued support,
We have finally launched our first Kickstarter!
Wargame terrain you can just stick together and use! A Robust, quick and awesome way to set up your table.
Love gaming but hate painting? Don’t have the time to put together fiddly terrain and painstakingly detail your buildings? We have the solution! Hooray!! The XLCs new range of 28mm pre-printed buildings are simple to assemble and will make your table look awesome…if we do say so ourselves!
Our terrain comes pre-printed and ready to assemble. We even include the glue. Each design is laser cut from printed 3mm MDF, all you need to do is peel off the protective backing and glue together. That’s it!
To make this product possible we have developed a technique whereby we can print onto a substrate, laminate to a 3mm MDF panel, apply a protective covering and then laser cut. This allows us to produce precision cut, printed components without scorching to any of the printed surfaces.
We have the equipment, we have the designs and we have already produced a small initial production run. What we need now is to buy in the material in bulk to enable us to supply the items at a competitive cost. If this Kickstarter is successful we plan to expand on the range with different designs and themes and eventually bring it to a wider market.
We have also decided to offer you the opportunity to suggest what our stretch goals should be so drop a message or comment and we will pick the stretch goals from the suggestions!
We need you!! Help us achieve our goal by pledging now!
Over the last few weeks we have been perfecting a range of terrain for our first Kickstarter!
