Tectonic Craft Studios

When hanging out at the LGS, whether it’s during a tourney or just going between games, we all have various ways of transporting our armies from one spot to another. Some people put their figs back into the foam trays or tackle box they came out of. Though that can be really time-consuming. Others will just toss their figures on the back of a rulebook. But your figures can slide and fall off. Some just grab them and move them over to the next table a handful at a time. But your models can bend or break and your paint can chip. Others get custom trays for moving around minis. It’s one of those that I’m looking at today.


Arkee Dan gave me one of these trays at Adepticon to try out and let you know my thoughts on.

So buckle yourselves in, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time it’s The Guildmate Tray from Tectonic Craft Studios.
Well, while it seems like we dodged one bullet here in Georgia the other day, only getting some rain. It's looking tonight like we might get a bit of accumulated precipitation. Though considering tomorrow it's supposed to get to 38 and the day after it's supposed to be sunny and 51, I'm not really worried about it.
I can't really say the same for the rest of GA. They seem like they're going freaking nuts. But waddyagonnado?
I'm just looking forward to tomorrow when I'm getting my next tattoo. *squee with excitement!*

Before then, though, we need to get you some bite-sized stories. So let's go ahead and do that.

Today we have: ArmiesArmy 15mm Cold war Kickstarter Breaking Through Stretch Goals, Khurasan releases 15mm PMCs (or special ops), Gob'z'heroes Breaking Through Stretch Goals On Kickstarter, New Iron Reich Goblin Squad Available From Kromlech, FatMan Productions introduces Awakening: Recon, Prang Raider packs and platoon now released From the Ion Age, The Guildmate Half Rack Tray Available From Tectonic Craft Studios, New alternative driver for Titan-Forge zeppelins, Khurasan releases 15mm Middle Eastern Heavy Weapons set, Alternative Armies: 28mm Undead and Monsters range released with freebies, and New Lava Bike/Cavalry bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures.

It seems that for most, this long weekend has been a rather rainy one (I know I've had plenty of plans altered by the skies opening up and dumping down rain everywhere). I hope you're keeping dry and safe out there. Might just want to play some games inside. Or you could do like me and cook something. I've got Italian Beef in the crock pot and even though Christmas was several days ago, I decided to make another fruitcake (I enjoyed the first one so much and had enough leftover ingredients).

Speaking of bite-size morsels, let's get you some bite-size stories for your Sunday.

Today we have: Deathball v1.5 Released, Polyversal 6mm Sci-Fi Miniatures System Kickstarter Teaser Posted, New Dice Trays from Tectonic Craft Studios, and Infamy Miniatures Running Goblin Chieftain Kickstarter.

From the announcement:

Hey Guys,

We got together with our friends over at Tectonic Craft Studios to get an awesome dice tower designed and made. Dan makes some of the best looking laser cut terrain that we have ever seen so when people here started talking about wanting a cool dice tower, he was the logical choice.

Here's the deal, they are limiting the initial run to make sure there are no fulfillment issues (700) and they are available today! The towers will be shipped around when Rivet Wars is shipped (earlier most likely). You can order yours today here (link)

Note that these are being made and fulfilled by Tectonic Craft Studios, not Cool Mini or Not. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact them!

Tectonic Craft Studios launched their webstore, so now you can get all of their products directly from the source.

From the announcement:

How many times have you spent all that time personalizing your army, maybe with friends or at a local gaming store, only to fight an epic battle on a plain grass/wasteland board with a few uninspired hills, drab buildings, and a few generic accent pieces?

Tectonic Craft Studios is looking to change that. We're looking to start making terrain as a continuous and evolving line of tabletop scenery that can grow with and adapt to a constantly growing and changing war games community. War games need high detail, durable, yet affordable terrain that is easily and intuitively assembled to get it built and on the table.

Tectonic Craft Studios launches a new kickstarter project.

From their kickstarter:

What we're all about
Tabletop miniatures games are a lot more than just games. Tabletop minis gaming is a hobby of strategy, tactics, modeling, painting, storytelling, dice-rolling, fun-having, and hanging out with your friends. They are as much about spatial relationships as they are personal ones. They're as much about making your army as they are playing and winning with them. As a whole, the tabletop minis hobby is a highly visual one. We spend hours and hours of converting, sculpting, painting, inking, and highlighting to make sure our armies look great.

Check it out!
