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.

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 updates Your Board Kickstarter

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

Happy Seppuku


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’s Your Board Kickstarter funds

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 launches new line

Happy Seppuku released a new line of products to help you make inserts for round-lip bases.


From the release:

Happy Seppuku Model Works is proud to announce the first in new line of READY BASE MOULDS available for pre-sale now! These moulds were designed to give miniature artist the perfect build platform to create the ground work for their bases prior to attaching it the base. Each mould is designed to give the artist a clean perfect edge to line up the ground work with their base, either creating an insert for lipped bases or matching to the top of non-lipped bases. There is plenty of run off area for those that like to do ‘oversized ground work’ but still have a bottom that is level to the table.

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!


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.

Happy Seppuku Pre-sale

Happy Seppuku is running a pre-sale for their next couple texture stamps they’re coming out with over in their webshop.

Steam Lab which was our 2013 Kickstarter “my accents” pledge stamp, and Old world- bamboo. All orders containing these stamps will be held until the release date.

Happy Seppuku previews Swamp Stamp WIPs

New unlocks and stamp previews in Happy Seppuku Kickstarter

Happy Seppuku reached a new stretch goal level and unlocked the diamond pattern stamp. They’ve also previewed a nautical accessory stamp they’re working on.

From the update:

Way to go everybody! So we are actually going to do a bit of a shake up with this update. First we all know this now unlocks the Tile-Diamond pattern that we previewed in Update #9 and we will show the image again here. Also we are changing something up, we had mentioned in a previous update that we were going to try and throw the “I want it all” pledges some bases, we are swapping that, instead we are also with this 20K goal unlocking the Steel- Diamond Plate! And remember “I want it all” gets one of every stamp we create with this Kickstarter, so yes to be clear “I want it all” is getting both stamps we have just unlocked. We looked things over and figure most people would rather have a new stamp over a few extra bases. Also since we launched we have been flooded with requests (both privately and publicly) for more Sci-fi, especially diamond plate. So, we are listening.

Happy Seppuku updates Kickstarter project with more previews

Happy Seppuku has had a busy weekend, showing off some more stamps and bases over in their Kickstarter campaign.

From the campaign:

We have also promised some tile images for you this weekend. Since we have had more than a few people asking about it and we are so close to the Stretch Goal, we have decided to post the Diamond Pattern first. Lets see if we can unlock it by the end of the weekend. And for those with the I want it all level, we have been listening and for your patients in getting to this point we will be throwing some more bases your way when we hit 20K goal.

Thanks Team, keep getting the word out, we’ll keep working on getting stuff to get your minds a buzzing with basing ideas.

Happy Seppuku breaks another stretch goal, adds free stamp to some pledge levels

Base stamps

From their announcement:

Happy Seppuku Model Works is proud to announce the release of their first product line, Base Texture Stamps. After two years of product development, Happy Seppuku’s Base Texture Stamps allow members of the miniature hobby to use any two part sculpting putty to add simple textures to the bases of their miniatures. Each of these silicon stamps allows the user to press a specific texture pattern into the putty. Stamps are large enough to allow for variations by pressing the next base in a different location on the stamp.

The initial release of five stamps include 3”X5” textures of a fishscale style brick, mud/snow, asphalt, wide wood planking and a 5”X5” sampler stamp that includes the four most common paving brick patterns (each sample large enough for a 50mm base.) Happy Seppuku hopes this will provide a simple and fast way to create artistic looking bases for the customer’s favorite miniatures. Base Texture Stamps are now on sale at
