Can a sci-fi dwarven KS get enough money for all of that?
As read Rabbit's fleshing out I came to the same question as you dice4hire, and then I thought what if all the walls were basic but also magnetic so that the huge amount of space ship décor was magnetic panels or small magnetic accessories.
I myself have no need of Sci-fi but if the huge Dwarvenite molds were reduced down to say 5 or 6 tiles and everything else was small or flat one sided panels that would lower mold costs and actually increase space ship variety options.
We were not necessarily thinking of magnets more clever sculpting allowing clip-in inserts, but magnets would do the trick more than nicely.
There will be very few different walls and floors
It would lack for variation but then that suits the environment
There are a lot of consoles but you can have as many or as few variations as suits mold availability
Each different encounter does not add many unique sculpts, mostly centring around one, Plasma Core, Engine, Weapon Mount and barrel.
The detail pieces are what increases the sculpt count, but some of these could be combined into a single sculpt, bunk beds and beds, gurneys and suspensor Carriages, etc.
An alternative KS structure could be just selling Walls, Floors and doors, with add-ons for the rest, using the encounters as pledge levels or examples of what could be built.
Backers like to just buy the bread and butter sculpts, but also need their imaginations spoon-fed with what they can build.
The big issue is would it sell, while you would loss fantasy RPGers you would gain wargamers as SF is huge in wargaming terms – but you do need a lot to cover a table.
But if you push toward board games like Space hulk you start to expand your customer base.
There are very few options in market for Spaceship internals, there are some but none would be as modular.
The gaming option with something like this is huge, W30k/W40k ship boarding actions, Alien, Aliens, Doctor Who ‘Robots of Death’ anyone? even Red Dwarf.
We can see Daleks, Cybermen, Aliens, Predators, Terminators, the whole W40k galaxy of races all roaming the corridors.
Also this is not restricted to spaceships but can easily be used as a Military or subterranean bunker, Terminator, Doctor Who ‘Genesis of the Daleks’, Agents of Shield, Starship Troopers II (yeah we said it), Fallout.
Might have mixed a few computer games in there
Honestly – really don’t expect it to happen, but we’d go in deep if it happened.
But we are speculating on the last DF KS (for whatever reason) so why not shoot for the Stars*
*Literally in this case
