A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… I backed Secret Weapon’s Tablescapes Kickstarter. And more than a year later than the estimated delivery date, I’m going to review it. A Kickstarter being late is no news, and Secret Weapon have been very open with the backers.
Funnily enough, what I’ll review isn’t even my pledge reward, as I wanted the mixed urban tiles and those have been hit with some extra delays. Backers had a special deal to buy more tiles before they went live and this is what I ordered (plus the Secret Weapon Pigments).
So, what do I think about them as a product? They’re amazing!
I’ve ordered the Deadzone Display board and the Scrapyard 16 Tile sets. And I wish I had pledged for more sets.
The plastic tiles are connected with these connectors (d’oh!). The big ones are used to connect 4 tiles, while the half-connectors are for the edges. They’re easy to attach and remove from the tiles.
The Deadzone display board contains 4 copies of the same tile with a damaged sci-fi urban look. It also has some extra plastic pieces to frame it.
The display set comes with a single connector for the 4 pieces, and the frame has half-connector shapes to hold it all together. The dowside to this is that if you want to connect 2 display boards together you’ll only have two connectors and it won’t be enough.
But the star of the show is the Scrapyard set. I love it!
Look at all that detail!! Most of the tiles are not that crowded, so you can put your own scenery on them. But there’s this one with a hill of scrap and another one with something that looks like an improvised fortress.
While the set is designed for sci-fi, it could also work for WW2. Now to find some time to paint them, but I’m really happy with this awesome purchase!
