In cooperation with partners throughout the industry, we now offer Secret Weapon’s custom resin bases and esper crystals, our own versatile and high-quality game tokens, adorable plushies to adorn your desk (or cuddle), and even more coming soon!
Fabled Environments Launches Wild West Floorplans Kickstarter
Ever wanted to run a old west campaign? Do you love the grit of the wild west and the pioneering spirit of those folks that left everything behind and went west to seek their fortune?
Maybe your campaign is a straightforward historic adventure with outlaws, Native Americans and simple townsfolk all struggling for survival. Maybe you've opted for a world where the creatures of nightmares exist and magic isn't just a thing of legend. Perhaps you've moved away from both of these settings into the present and the lure of a haunted old west ghost town.
Just like a good play or movie, a story needs a great set to make it come alive. That is where we come in. This Kickstarter will give you what you need to help make your vision come alive on the tabletop. The Kickstarter is for floor plans of several iconic old west structures: Settler's Cabin, Hotel/Saloon, General Store, Church W/Cemetery, Sheriff's Office and a Livery Stable.
Manorhouse Workshop Modular Underground Terrain Update #16
Hello to everyone
While we wait the 3D Files for the steel molds of the basic set of sewers and underground. Let’s start with the new design of the second set: underground and rooms of the castle. The second set (drawings made by Michele Bottalico) will be dedicated to the Gothic period and to the first windows with arches “Sesto Acuto” and “Everything Sesto”, both mono that mullioned windows. Creating so further dynamism and possibilities to make unique your dungeon of dream.
We show the first W.I.P. walls of stone base and the new “walls dynamics”.
As noted above, are still in the works, but you begin to see the end result.
The central part of the wall is always removable and replaceable with other dynamics walls.
The new dynamics stone walls can also be used with the older version of arc walls brick, making more varied design of the corridors…
…like the arc wall “Sesto Acuto”, may use some of the mobile walls in brick.
In the next post, we will present the interior balconies and stairs to access it.
Stay connected. Lorenzo

Final days for Going Native: New World Monsters on Kickstarter
Well we have reached the final stretch of this campaign. We have moved well beyond the original goal of $4,000 to be within spitting distance of $10,000. We have unlocked several Monsters from all over the Americas and the Pacific Islands. This is fantastic, and more than I have imagined.
Now with the end of the campaign is in sight, I feel that I have to address the metal verses resin issue. The issue is that I stated at the beginning of the campaign that the models would be either white metal, resin or metal/resin hybrids. This is a production decision that is made when the model is in hand and I have had a good talk to the casters and make the best choice that maintains the quality that is expected of me and my company. This decision will be made on a kit by kit basis. The only solid plans I have is that I have is that every 28mm (Man-size) Model or Smaller will be cast in white metal, and the Monstrous Clam, Pua Tu Tahi, is the only model planned for resin at this time. I am sorry that his is not more exact but this is the best answer I can give you.
Since we are so close to the end it is time to release the last minute offers that should get the word out there. First off I am going to offer as an unlockable model will be the American Lake Monster. The Lake Monster is meant to represent the different cryptids that live in the lakes in North and South America, like Champ from Lake Champlain, USA, Ogopogo from Okanagan Lake, Canada, and Nahualito from Nahuel Huapi Lake, Argentina just to name a few. This will be a large sized model. This monster will work great for historical games as well, we can see the mighty Scottish Hero William Wallace riding the Loch Ness Monster in to battle against the English. (snicker) We will unlock the Lake Monster once we reach 100 backers. The American Lake Monster estimated retail price is $20 a model.
Other things of note, by popular request, I will be adding a Fleeing Child kit to the Kickstarter campaign. Each kit will include two fleeing children from the Basket Woman kit and it will sell for $6 a kit. I am not planning to continue this offer the campaign, so if you some kids that you do not have to mind better pick up your set of Fleeing Children. Also by popular request, I have decided to include a human form for the fallowing Skinwalker models – Ewah, El Lobizon, Child of Kamoho/ Were-Shark, and Encantado. So if these models are unlocked they will include a Human form along with their Were form. As of the time of this update I cannot afford to make the Nagual’s were-jaguar form, the Brujo. Sorry.
