RGFX Kickstarter “Persistent Fog Machine”

Hi everyone!

Our friends at RGFX are revealing more and more of their awesome Persistent Fog Machine, and our collaboration together!
For those reading attentively, MHW and RGFX have been indeed collaborating during the past half-year on this project.
The result was the Dark Crypt, a beautiful building made by MWH which let RGFX’s Fog Machine fit perfectly inside, allowing the fog to roll out from all sides, submerging a whole gaming terrain with ease!

For a more breathtaking look at how the Dark Crypt generates fog, take a look at RGFX’s Teaser video, made on the Dwarven Forge Caverns for more awesomeness.

RGFX has plans to launch their Kickstarter in May 2017, where you will be able to buy their Persistent Fog Machine, with the Dark Crypt…

and their Black Box.

Update 14 – F.H. – Hard Plastic – Interior, stairs, and balconies

Hi everyone,

In the past articles we did create with our FH walls buildings, underground sewers and dungeons.
Now it’s time to present the interior of a villa, with its main hall.
It is composed of multiple stairs which brings you to the upper balconies.
The architecture that is given birth in this manner is just breath-taking.

The feeling is the one of entering for real an important, aristocratic, mansion.
But at the same time, there is a foreboding feeling … so many stairs, where do they lead ?
What is hidden on the upper floors ?
You can already imagine the dark anguish which will enwrap the heroes as they set foot in this mansion.

Update 13 – F.H. – Hard Plastic – Back to the… Dynamic Floors & Sewers

Hi everyone!

After several articles about the walls of Forgotten Halls, which allows to build and create an infinity of amazing buildings, we are back to one of the most interesting feature of our project: our Dynamic Floors.

Our Dynamic Floors can be modified and customized in many different ways, by adding and taking out some Floor Inserts.

In Forgotten Halls, our Dynamic Floors have a cross-section, with 3 different Modular inserts, which can be added/taken out, and moved to create different results.

This is just one of the multiple solution reachable with Forgotten Halls.

But let’s go back to the Dungeon.
This dungeon has a lot of modularity. Since our walls are not pinned to the floors, you can put them wherever you want, creating even very narrow corridors, or rooms of various sizes.
The length of the corridors and the size of the rooms is up to you!
All of the modularity doesn’t take away anything of the aesthetics, allowing you to immerge yourself and your miniatures in a beautiful gaming experience.

Let’s now give space to the pictures and the video.

Update 12 – F.H. – Hard Plastic – You can use Forgotten Halls on any existing terrain!

Hi everyone!

In our previous article we showed you how you can use Forgotten Halls to create rooms, corridors, towers, etc, without using our Dynamic Floors of 100x100x10mm. It was however with a “3D Bases” Stone Slabs floor, which creates a perfect floor for our building, and thus, you didn’t need to use any of our FH floors, for obvious reasons.
However, we are showing you now how you can use any kind of terrain already in your possession and still use perfectly our FH range.

Let’s use indeed a terrain base, like our “Rough Terrain – 3D Bases”. This terrain represents a mix of earth, little stones, etc classical to outdoors terrains.
With this terrain, you can’t use add apparently our FH walls to create a building, since you would be missing the stone floor and it wouldn’t look as good as it should.
However, there is a very easy solution “built-in FH”, which we are showing you now. 🙂

This step by step images show you how to create a perfect stone floor for the FH building, while keeping the overall result perfect.
The floors we are using are already existing in FH, and fit perfectly our structures.
We are also adding our covers under our walls, this time, to make the floors underneath fit perfectly. The same covers are added on the top of the walls to build up more floors, here, about the tower.

The overall result, as you can see, is great!
We have a full tower with its ground floor fully integrated with the Rough Terrain used as base.
We could continue, with the same floors, to build more floors of the same tower, or build another structure nearby. It’s just one of the multiple, and endless, potentialities of our FH modular system.

Update 11 – Forgotten Halls – Hard Plastic – Fortified Terrace

Hi to everyone!
Let’s continue with more accessories to widen even more the potentialities of our Forgotten Halls project.

To see all the videos dedicated to our Forgotten Halls project, and being kept updated about them, go and subscribe to our YouTube channel

Let’s start from the terrace that we did present during last article.
We did add 2 towers to this structure, connected between them with a small overhead bridge.
You can see how the stairs give a great dynamism to the whole, while the towers give a robust show of strength to the whole structure.

On this other building, we modified everything making it a real sturdy fortress.
The 2 towers are still there but we took out the stairs bringing up to the terrace, and made the walls of the main building much more sturdier thanks to our “Dynamic External Walls”.
And this is just a single floor building. Imagine what you could create with a taller structure, with more floors … a unique and huge fortress.

Let’s speak about our “Dynamic External Walls”.
This simple yet elegant MHW idea allows to create endless potentialities for your building creations, without needing to invest a lot of money to buy hundreds of different walls, which then take also a lot of place when you need to stock them around.
With our solution, with just the Walls of our Base Set, you can add any kind of our Dynamic External Walls to create a various number of different walls of your liking.

We’re just scratching the surface here of the possibilities, since you can combine the main Dynamic Walls (inside the walls) with the External ones to create wonderful results, giving depth and details, in different ways, to your structure.

Of course, our external dynamic walls are available on both format (60x56x4mm. and 100x56x4mm.).

This is just the beginning.

Update #10 – Hard Plastic – 3D Bases ideal for Forgotten Halls

Happy new year to everyone!
Let’s start the 2017 by presenting how our 3D Bases work with our Forgotten Halls project.
The 3D Bases are prefect to create a gaming area where to build the Forgotten Halls structures.

Today we are showing you the Stone Slabs. Like their name say, those represent stone slabs of 25x25mm.
They are ideal for any RPG, boardgame, skirmish or other which use a grid area to move.
Here we are using 4 bases of 30x30cm, for an overall gaming area of 60x60cm

In the last article we showed you how the walls of FH can be detached from the floors and used on their own.
This is all good, but where to use these walls ? The short answer is : anywhere is good.
But why not use some tridimensional surfaces, modular, and perfectly well texturized, like our 3D Bases, which merge perfectly with FH? 🙂

As you can see for yourself in these images, the overall result together is just perfect.

But it doesn’t stop here.
Our FH project will continue to present new tools and options.
Let’s speak about the latest add-on, which adds a great touch to our Floor set.
Our new floor measures 100x100x2mm and will allow you to create ample floors fully playable.
Also, all of our floors can be fully removed from the walls, allowing you to play and reach any floor underneath.

This is just the first article which will speak of the synergy between our 2 project 3D Bases and Forgotten Halls.
In the next one, you will see how our Upper Floors can be used to create new structures, even on the ground floor.

3D Bases – First terrains And Merry Christmas to all

Hi to everyone

As promised here is an update about production!
Images speak more than a thousand words, so here you will see finally some battlegrounds composed of 24 bases (120x180cm), in various set-ups as to show how versatile the whole product is!

Now the production factory is fully focused on the Abbey bases, the most complex bases of all, and affirms the production will be finished in January.
The Abbey bases are surely the most interesting ones, since nearly all you chose to buy a copy of them.

As we wrote before, however, the deliveries will start once we have some Abbeys ready, so hopefully the first deliveries will be on their way before the end of January!
We can’t wait!

In the meantime, what you see on the images are the bases that will be delivered to an Australian backer, with some other material / product from our first crowdfunding.
The backer had to wait quite a while to receive our material from our first crowdfundung, but we learned a lot on for this Kickstarter, where he will receive everything 3 months in advance!
This is what we hope will be our policy from now on, and a thank you gesture for his patience!

Let’s finish with the best Christmas wishes for all.
We are at the end of 2016, which was for us a great year, and we’re sure 2017 will be even better.

So a big THANK YOU for all your support which allowed us to end this year so well.
A very great Christmas and best wishes for 2017 to all of you and your families, from David and me.
All the best!

Update #6 – Hard Plastic -Flooring up & Zealot Miniatures!!!

Hi to all.

We’ve shown you up to now videos about walls, floors, modularity, inserts, and compatibility.

But what about getting higher ? What about adding floors for a multi-level dungeon or gaming area ?

This is where it gets even more interesting!
We’re using a specific Wall Cover (with pins) on which you can fix your walls, to go higher and higher:

You can also see a balcony, but more especially, our Upper Floors.
Our system of Upper Floors allow you to take them out very easily to be able to keep playing on the lower floors, without having to detach and unbuild all your walls and floors.
It’s playability to its finest, and we wouldn’t set up for less.
And what about the torches ? Will they be available in our Kickstarter ?
Of course!

Those are actually Zealot Miniatures torches.
This company launched a great Kickstarter and has great quality add-ons to fill any building or dungeon.
Their 3D level work is amazing, and who knows, maybe they’ll be designing the Forgotten Halls add-ons and inserts ?

The holes in our pillars/walls can be used to insert anything. Torches and columns is just the start. We have many other surprises in store.
What about indeed Steampunk, Ruins, or Post-Apocaliptic inserts ?
We have already developed them. They will be waiting for you in our Kickstarter.

Regards from Lorenzo and David.
