January Kickstarter Gaming Accessories
“For the Gamer Who Has Almost Everything…”
We have much in store for our viewers and fans for 2014 and since you all love to support independent gamers and enjoy reading about the new hottest projects on Kickstarter we are bringing you TWO Kickstarter articles a month. We’ve decided to divide the articles into tabletop games and tabletop gaming accessories. The accessories article is brand new and will feature an array of current projects that feature additions to games like miniatures, custom terrain pieces, game mats and more!
Those days of Billy Mays and extravagant product demos is back in this Magical PennyGems campaign video. A Washingtonian gamer has developed practical tokens for Magic the Gathering meant to replace all the random collection of dice and glass counters. PennyGems are chic, practical and pretty much indestructible! I highly recommend pitching in for a set, bringing them to Friday Night Magic and watch you become the talk of the evening.
What better way to transport yourself into the horror stories of H.P. Lovecraft than to have dice themed for your Cthulhu game? This campaign wants to add dice with symbols of the Great One with various tiers of difficulty. The dice are also featured in three cosmic colors which will pair perfectly to games like Arkham Horror or the Call of Cthulhu LCG.
Have you ever spent way too long looking in a bin of miniatures to find the perfect one to represent your character but had to settle for something less than extraordinary? Well the guys behind Hero Forge have a solution to solve this problem: they are setting up a system to let gamers design and print a custom miniature. Customers would be able to use a 3D menu and choose pieces to add to their custom miniature in the dressing room. The business is looking to grow and include even more pieces to add to the base models. Also they will offer different miniature sizes including 28mm, 3inch and 6inch options!
The guys over at Dice Tower are looking for funds in order to continue on to their 10th season. Dice Tower has remained a free community and has produced multiple videos and game reviews for their fans and they are looking to keep things that way. Their reward tiers include access to various promotional material they have received for games, custom dice and more!
Darkness Sequel is looking to provide custom metal gaming dice for all your gaming needs. They have various shapes, detailing and colored metals available to create your own dice including traditional designs and even ones that will spin like tops. There are a variety of options to pick from to make sure your dice looks great for that steampunk rpg campaign.
Have you ran out of monsters to throw at your players? Are you a DM who really wants to surprise their players with brand new monsters and challenges? Well Casey Sorrow has some creature concepts that are sure to terrify your players. This artist decided to compose a book containing all his monstrous creations over the past year. The images are black and white ink which is a throwback to older rpg creature manuals.
For those that need some long-haired, bearded and shirtless viking miniatures running around their RPG campaign, make sure to check out this Kickstarter. There are six variations of the warrior none of which are women which is unfortunate; but the bright side is each warrior wields a different weapon and is dressed in different Nordic clothing.
Fat Dragon Games has partnered with Reaper Mini’s to create a fantasy village that is perfect for combat in your roleplaying campaign. Ravenfell accommodates 28mm miniatures and additional assembly allows for tactical combat on outside on the cobblestones or even on the rooftops! The village will be printed and assembled similar to papercraft but will be made to withstand frequent using in gaming and will easily dissemble when the game is done.
So there were a number of campaigns for products you didn’t even know you needed. If you feel that we missed a campaign that is worth mentioning, let us know in the comments, on Facebook or twitter. We’ll have another Kickstarter accessories article in February.
