    Looks like they'll have 1-2-3 hex blocks. Maaan, after playing most of Defiance campain I'd say cardboard tiles fit poorly for that game. Always get messed up. Though maybe if they are big enough it will be fine.
    I wonder if there are some kind of holders/weights for tabletop tiles. Or how pricey it would be to print tiles on magnetic vinyl sheets...

    Render of the Nomad TAG and concepts for the WarTechWorks/PanO TAG featuring the "PanOptic" sensor system (sounds useful for prospecting)

    Also interesting to see CB partner with an EU based boardgame manufacturer that has experience with large hex tiles....

    That rockeater render looks like a sweet kickstarter for a real small 3d print company where they are giving 90 models for a $20 backing.

    I think I have found a better color scheme for the PanOceania's mining TAG ¬¬

    Get a neoprene mat and flip it upsidedown. Use the rubber to help the tiles grip and stay put. I do this for MDF infinity tilesets.

    I really hope the new partnership means that TAG-Raid can be produced in the EU!

    As I mentioned before in various spots, Archon Studio from Poland does nice plastic models and ahead of time with their Dungeons and Laser kickstarters. They make them in Poland, then ship them Fedex to everywhere. Their dragons are great.

    I assume the giant worm will be plastic, and I assume it'll be China. Which means it'll add a bunch of time and eh.

    Yeah... A lot of ships were sold to the breakers when in 2020 the sea commerce took a dip (the Chinese government invested in national infrastructures, meaning they needed metal for bridges and other construction works, so for certain ships it was better to scrap then than to have the ships simply waiting around), and then about half the amount of containers that go out of China don't return... plus the main USA harbour had to send its workers into quarantine, so...

    Archon does it in-house, or have tight contacts with a CNC workshop at least. They have the initiative and the skills. They made some dubious decissions, like funny rescalings, but in general they seem to be commited into the new (for them) process. OTOH, HIPS does not allow undercuts without complex tools (sliding cores) and would require lot of assembly at the factory or be shipped in sprue (not boardgamish), and I have not heard much about their first process (boardgamish), sounds like they dropped it altogether. It could fit (haha), but so could the other "plastic injection into rubber molds" systems avaliable.

    Will price increase be still cheaper than assembling in Europe? You know, ship all to China and join with the things produced there, ship back and ship again.
