Today has been a bit of a disappointment.
After well over a year of waiting my tablescape tiles finally arrived. Having the day off sick i stopped by the post office to pick them up thinking it’d be a nice cheer me up.
Got home with a giant package and unwrapped it to find the tablescape box inside. I was very excited finally my rolling fields board for warmahordes, bolt action and infinity. I have some many plans for this bad boy.
Took a moment to appreciate the box which held up design for something like 5 months. Its meant to be a transport for it even after you get the tiles painted up. Looked pretty solid and schmick so i guess it could be worth the wait (I continually forgot it existed until the rare communications from the KS team).
Opened it up and was shocked at the tiles. So much thinner and lighter than I had thought. Took a look through a could more and started getting really annoyed. They don’t feel like a high quality product. They feel cheap and flimsy, completely against what i had expected after the kickstarter updates. I wasn’t keen to try but it feels like any pressure like saying leaning over the board could cause them to break. I haven’t ever used products from wargames factory who produce the tiles. But I have heard those flimsy style plastic is common for their items.
The detail is good it would be better with a coat of paint and miracle dip.
i am very annoyed that the tile clips are stop the board sliding apart were not included. In fact there is nothing to keep the board stable.
Clips are supplied and my overall mark adjusted.
Taking out the Kickstarter I’d say this product is a 8/10
If you backed it then it feels more like 7/10. The details and options are should account for most types of games.
Edit: The carry box is useless and already falling apart while transporting from kitchen to the games room upstairs. the part with the handle bends up worryingly and the tiles are punching holes in the box.
