Happy Seppuku Model Works


Monday Terrain Corner

Back in the office after a busy weekend. Heck, I was just here the other day, helping to pick and pack orders (or "the ol' P' n' P'" as they apparently don't call it, much to my disappointment). But it's back to the regular desk (at least for now), making news posts. That includes letting you know about terrain to make your tables look great.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Happy Seppuku Running MagRelief Kickstarter and Heroic Maps - Christmas Countdown Week 1.

TGN Sunday Edition

Welcome to Sunday. We're glad to have you here. I hope your Saturday was good. Mine involved a Battle Chef cutting down raiders with a Horse Butcher. It was a good time. "Here, eat this." is apparently going to be a catchprase for him, especially when dealing with the Intelligence 8 Half-Orc Barbarian that's also part of the party.

But that's as may be. Let's get on to a sampler of bite-sized stories for your Sunday afternoon.

A quick one for you today. This batch includes: Happy Seppuku's Base and Terrain Stamp Upgrade Kickstarter, The Deathless Unlocked in Panzerfauste, and the final week for Smoking Aces on Kickstarter.

But that is the past. The present is a new Terrain Corner post, where we gather together the various terrain stories we've gotten in the past couple days and bundle them together for you.

Happy Seppuku's Your Board in the final week of funding

Happy Seppuku has only 5 days left for their Your Board Kickstarter campaign. They're over their goal, but they'd love to make it through some of those stretch goals. Only you get to decide if they make it.

From the campaign:

Happy Seppuku Model Works is entering its final week of funding for the Your Board Kickstarter! Thanks to the suggestions from our backers we have made many changes to enhance the Your Board project. The Tile Mould is not more versatile allowing people to easily create perfect 1” or 1.5” grids. It is larger now 6”X6”. We have added some classic stamps to the availability list to add to that versatility. And now we have unlocked our Wall Moulds, allowing people to not just create a dynamic multi-level dungeon, but to start creating terrain for outside the dungeon. The funding of this project will be the jumping off point for a few other new product lines that will help gamers create truly great tables without breaking the bank. Come by and check it out, even if dungeons are not your thing but like where Happy Seppuku is heading, there are plenty of ways to show your support! We are funded but we want as many people as possible to be able to say "That was the moment, and I was a part of it!"

Happy Seppuku has restructured their Your Board Kickstarter campaign to give you a better value.

From them to you:

Happy Seppuku Model Works take pride in being a company that works with its customers and backers to create the tools that they feel will make the hobby they love better. While the project is funded, recently backers for our Your Board Kickstarter, came to us and asked us to do some revamping of the campaign, based on discussions they have been having in their local shops and on the forums they frequent. Working with them, Happy Seppuku Model Works, has implemented some changes including a refocus on the core moulds of the system and increasing amount of rewards our pledges will receive with Location kits . We feel, like our backers, that this should stoke the fire a bit and get funding moving like it did at the start line, so it can be as successful as our last campaign. If you haven’t been by the site lately come by and check it out.

Happy Seppuku previews new Kickstarter teaser

Happy Seppuku has posted up a teaser video for their next Kickstarter campaign.

From the post:

Happy Seppuku Model Works is proud to announce a return to Kickstater. For now we have launched a teaser trailer to get people ready, and to give them a taste of what we plan on biting off this time. Our new YOUR BOARD tile system will be a set of tools to allow you to make your own dungeon, starship, lair or HQ from scratch without feeling like you just bought a real building. The Kickstarter will focus on improving from prototype to a clean precise set of tools to help you make your table look like a professional sculpted and produced every tile. As last time one of our favorite things about Kickstater is the amount of input from our backers to help make it their product. We are on track to launch by the end of August, so be prepared, because this time it is bigger than bases.

Happy Seppuku new stamp pre-orders

Happy Seppuku has some new terrain stamps they're taking orders for over on their website. Don't leave your minis on boring bases!



Source

From the announcement:

Happy Seppuku Model Works is happy to announce the upcoming release and presale of two new texture stamps. Ground- Creek Bed contains a mountain creek surrounded by smooth boulders. Ruins- Urban Jungle is the first in our new RUINS category, the texture contains a scene you might see in a bombed out city, including broken concrete, sheet metal, a downed fence and street scraps like a vent/drain pipe and some traffic cones.

Both of these stamps mark a shift in our texture stamp designs. The largest request we receive is to add more variety to our textures. With this release we are going to treat each 3”X5” area as if it was its own little scene. We are still going to make sure there are areas where you can get a “pure pattern” on bases smaller than 40mm’s, with textures that would contain “clean areas”. Accents will still be useful for those wanting to get truly infinite possibilities with their basing but we feel this will give people a much easier time when they are looking to just “stamp and go.”

Both stamps are on presale now at our online store, through their release on June 20th. All orders containing one of our presale stamps will be held until their release until the 20th.
