    …or the English title: How to build tabletop terrain: Gaming Boards

    Both don’t roll off the tongue so easily, which is why we prefer to say: Michael’s new book.

    Which Michael? Michael Martin, who runs the YouTube channel Tabletop Workshop and published the book Tabletop-Gelände aus Hartschaum: Gebäude (Terrain from XPS Foam: Building) together with Gerard Boom (Shiftinglands).

    So now a new Kickstarter about boards that mean worlds. This time he’s brought in a couple of co-authors, but more on that later.

    Assuming that Michael puts as much work and love into the new book as he did into its predecessor, this book will be a great reference work. Because as nice as YouTube tutorials are, if you are looking for a specific piece of information, scrubbing a video can be a lot of work. A book with an index is much faster and more durable. In addition, you can add bookmarks, notes and you still have it if the power goes out, the channel disappears or you just want to have some peace and quiet in the bathroom.

    Michael was kind enough to send me some key data. Here are the most important ones:

    • The Kickstarter starts on Thursday, 15 July 2021, at around 6 p.m.
    • The Kickstarter ends on Sunday, 15 August 2021, at 10 p.m.
    • Funding goal: 15,000€
    • Delivery of the book is scheduled for August 2022
    • No PDF or digital version, the book will be published in print only
    • Price: 55,- € (later retail price)
    • Kickstarter price: 49,- € (i.e. 10% discount compared to later retail price)
    • Kickstarter price, Early Bird: 44,- € (20% discount, first 72 hours only.
    • Guest authors:
      Marcus Müller from Berlin (aka “Der Müller”)
      Philipp Preiser (aka Tabletop Lenny)
      Zorpazorp Gaming
      Black Magic Craft

    So for all those who bought either his first book, Mel’s terrain book or are into books on tabletop things in general might want to give this a look.

    This is cool. I’ve watched a fair few of his videos and I’ve been a sub to Zorpazorp for a long time. I don’t tend to buy books like this just because I don’t make terrain but I’m sure it’ll be a great product.

    If the book is half as good as his terrain videos, it’ll be absolutely superb.

    Ah, came here to post this.
    I’m in, as I was for the last book. Ge Verboom did and excellent job on that and having had the privelege to do a workshop with him that was a no brainer.
    Seeing as Micheal had equal hand in that book, and the talent he roped in for this one, I’m backing once again.

    I also have Mel’s book, which was the perfect companion to the XPS buildings one, but this seems to go into plaster casting, LED liighting, so it’s bound to add to my repertoire. And it’s always good to get another perspective on known techniques

    Really nice looking book. Shame there’s no PDF but for all the terrain makers out there, it’s an excellent buy (and that’s without the stretch goals!)
