    Another great add-on for gamers who use minis but do not normally use terrain. Terrain lite gamers.

    It is easy to explain why they do not have each item sold as individual pieces. Besides the whole system of mold space allocation. They have a warehouse system set up for boxes of stuff not bins. If your business can afford a warehouse set up for hundreds of boxed skus (item numbers) not thousands of bins of individual items that is how you stay in business. Why does a model company (you know old fashion models you glue together and them paint) not sell each part of a model separately because it would be a logistical nightmare. I also wish I could get just the pieces I want but I do not expect it to ever happen.

    They have a pledge calculator http://dwarvenforge.com/kickstarter-5-pledge-calculator/ and They have a online spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yk0Kyv1J2VIpemNSJGjNauPzULeXbRV25JDUEv__qbg/edit These are from the KS about 3/5th of the way down Hope that helps

    I have suggested to DF that they make floor only packs and door packs and accessories that sit on floors for customers who do not like walls. I call them Wall Haters ;) While I love my Dwarvenite walls I understand why some do not and it might be a new customer base for DF but it might also cause them to have to change how they do molds and that might cost them more than they would make. I suggest if a lot of people would like DF to make wall less options they should join the KS pledge for the floor packs and politely ask for more wall less options. As I said I like DF walls but even I would love more floor options, damaged floors, decorative floors and just floors with different patterns.

    Bunch of small add-ons for smaller budgets The bottom two are great for gamers who are not ready to fully get in the 3d terrain. Doors work great on game mats, to spice up encounters.

    Well my minis must now be on a secrete mission because they have not reporting their location for five days and all I know is that they are expected here on the 21st. Hopefully they are not all name level by the time they arrive. Name level minis would be too snooty to let a low level painter such as myself touch a brush to them. ;)

    I love the legend below for this one. One legend i came across was that she was discovered by two hunters discovered a pale woman tending to a white buffalo near the edge of a massive herd of buffalo. The two hunters crept closer and closer, one of the hunters decided that he was going to make the pale woman his wife. As the man crept up on the woman, the pale woman did not pay him any mind. The young hunter rushed and embraced the pale woman, then both exploded in to a cloud of smoke. when the smoke cleared the Pale woman stood next to a pile of bones of the young hunter. The other hunter that was watching was terrified, and drew his bow. The pale woman, unmoved, told the young hunter that he was in no danger as she could see in to his heart and saw the true nature of the hunter. She explained that to the hunter that she was a goddess and she wanted to teach his people how to become greater then what they are.

    THOD use to get very high marks for running DF EU but now days I do hear negative feelings about DF EU. Not sure why there was such a change.

    Below is a message DF sent out Dear Gamers – We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our newest Kickstarter – Dungeon of Doom! — hand-sculpted and painted terrain for gamers. Date: Saturday, June 17th Time: 11AM, US Eastern Place: Kickstarter.com Our goal for this Kickstarter: design, sculpt and paint the most comprehensive, compelling and fun modular dungeon terrain assortment ever offered. We are thrilled with the detail, the variety and the array of great new features. We hope you will be as well. Here’s a preview photo: Without your support on Kickstarter, large scale production of this incredible assortment (about 150 different items) just isn’t possible. We’d never get past the tooling, production and inventory requirements – huge steel molds that require long production runs for efficient production of each piece. That’s why we continue to count on our amazing backers, and it’s why we always offer the product at a lower price during the Kickstarter campaign than it will ever be again. An important note: For those of you who haven't yet received your Castle from last year's Kickstarter, you might wonder why we are launching this new Kickstarter before completing shipments of the last one. It's a fair question that we know we should address. Last year's delay was prompted by our retooling some of the key pieces to improve their fit and sturdiness. It was significantly compounded when we didn't finish tooling and casting before Christmas production season -- when die makers and casting equipment get shifted to large retailers, and our capacity takes a back seat to completing and shipping their seasonal merchandise. It proved to be a painful bottleneck. Needless to say, we are extremely grateful for your patience. We don't want to repeat this with Dungeon of Doom -- and we've been asked by the factory to start tooling by early July in order to avoid it. This is the main reason we are launching now. We hope you understand -- and please know that 100% of Castle production is complete. Our US warehouse is fully devoted to completing shipments in the next couple weeks and all non-US shipments are packed and en route (if not delivered already). Thanks so much! We hope to see you on Kickstarter next Saturday morning the 17th!

    Did Reaper pay for a special kind of adventuring shipping because my minis have gone to nine different cities in the US and they are still thousands of miles away from me? Perhaps Reaper wanted my minis to level up a couple of times before I got them. ;) Oh well when this KS does fulfill for me I will have high level minis. ;) Great job getting all the US orders shipped!

    Amazon does it to me all the time, as does every other online retailer if I place more that one order at a time but I trust my online retailers just as I trust Dwarven Forge and Reaper KS. But DF and Reaper have built up trust over the years so I am willing to trust them even when they have had trouble during this latest KSs. You perhaps have not had such great experiences with DF and Reaper so YMMV. I really like those broken edge tiles I hope they are an early on add-on
