This is very cool, I love it!!! I'd offer blue and red as field colour options. Will this be a tinted clear resin, or plastic?

Tinted clear resin or plastic is the plan. Given the costs and numbers involved in manufacturing at this stage, I'll only be offering one colour. Assuming this stretch goal gets unlocked. Although I'm half tempted to increase the target number and have it as part of the campaign.

Blue is probably better than red then.

It's hard to predict what will be more attractive, a larger initial package with a higher target number, or a smaller target number with more stretch goals, a conundrum to be sure!

I have to say, rendering the designs is really cool to get a better sense of what I'm picturing in my head.

Two versions, well, one is with the rail part moved off "screen". I would need to fix up the recesses in the tops of the supports to actually have that version made.

Very cool, I like it.

I like the one without the rail more than the one with it.

The top of the five legs look a little unfinished though, perhaps you could put some sort of top piece on these?

Would it be hard to offer an alternate version of the outer ring by removing the trench from the front face of the outer ring, and replacing it with some sort of Sci-Fi runes?

There are actually runes inside the trench track.

Super cool. It gives me a real Stargate Atlantis vibe.

Well, I've just ordered the samples to be made so I can get a firm quote. Which means I should be launching mid April as planned!

TIP: - Before going hard on a Kickstarter date - do some research on potential project clashes. What I mean by this is to check all the terrain making companies to see if they have a Sci-Fi terrain kickstarter planned on or around the date you wish to begin - clashing projects can really harm a kickstarter campaign.

Of course, you might not be able to determine if a company is having one or not, they may be keeping it secret, however they often do advertise in advance, and if you can avoid a clash, it would be worth the time investment of a single night of on-line research.

I've already been looking at other potential clashes. Fortunately, the main one I was worried about cancelled their kickstarter, but it was the Harry Potter board game anyway.

So I've had to re-work the gate design. I took the opportunity to make it somewhat larger too smile.gif
