Dwarven Forge KS5 Back to the dungeon

Recommended Posts

Threads merged.

And just for general info, since the forum update it appears that the tags can now be changed without breaking the links to images so it should be okay to post images in the first post.

At least until proven otherwise.

Good to know.

 

Thanks

I am just crossing my fingers that this and Bones 4 will not be live at the same time, or very close together.

During the KickstarterI can survive on the adrenaline alone. Beyond that, malnourishment/starvation is an issue.

New KS Dungeon? the only one I missed out on originally? Oh smurf....

Exactly my thoughts (although I have bought a few sets at retail later).

I am thinking Bones will start first, though no way to know. DF communicates poorly day to day or week to week, but I am sre they will tell us when they will start fulfilling the last KS.

Since DF is still in production I would expect Bones 3 to start to ship first, and if it does I would expect Bones 4 to start before DF KS5.  But with all the extra unexpected delays to Bones 3 I will wait till I have my minis, paint and videos in my hands before I will call Bones 4 hatched.

I managed to make my will-roll for every Dwarven Forge Kickstarter ... reasons being: it's not cheap (that in itself is not really a bonus to my will-roll), it's heavy (meaning shipping to Germany is expensive) and not-cheap plus high shipping means I have to pay a lot of import taxes and fees ...

Doesnt Dwarven Forge of a European distributor?

Problem with this European distributor is, they don't have nearly everything. For example, right now they just have 1 set of the medieval building stuff, which is prepainted and fairly expensive (85 £). And shipping to a country other than the UK is still pretty expensive.

Sadly, they seem to have some sort of exclusive deal, since I can't find Dwarven Forge anywhere in the usual German miniature online shops.

I am no expert on DF's business workings but as I understand it.

 

Long ago DF tried the retail way of business and in the end it did not work and moved DF toward going out of business. 

 

So DF moved toward selling off the web and while that worked in many ways it was not good for European customers but a certain customer asked if he could become a European web store distributor of DF.  This model worked for DF and DF Europe in the days of DF resin products.

 

When DF made the decision to try and make products out of a PVC like substance (Dwarvenite), KS was the best option to get it done.  Now if half of DF Europe's customers take part in the KS to get their stuff they do not buy it from DF Europe's web site.  So while KS is a great option it does have it's drawbacks.

fwiw, DF was (and I think still is) known for selling out of product in the states as well, sometimes pretty quickly. That's one of the advantage of KS. Small companies can offer the wide variety of products they *want* to offer, but couldn't otherwise because of cash flow. With KS, creators know exactly how much stuff to make and avoid inventory problems.

 

Kodiak, you're expert enough for me! The DF forums have too much chaff to read through for DF5 information. Keep up the concise work!

Them selling out of stuff in the US is something that might change how I order from the next one. The things that I think might sell out first might be good to purchase during Kickstarter. While the more generic stuff might be good to pick up later, especially for duplicates.

      Goblins ... iconic fantasy creatures, maybe not the most dangerous, comical at times,
      And Trolls ... Trolls may be a bit slow ... not to say stupid, but they are big, and strong! (and always hungry!)
      Together, Trolls and Goblins are a force to reckon with!
      This campaign is a small group of goblins and a big troll to accompany them. If they are funded, we'll add more goblins, for larger warbands, some characters to lead them, and more trolls!
      Goblins are among my favorite figurines to carvings, different expressions, anatomy, costumes and armours ... I have many of them in the pipeline, and I want to sculpt many more!
      You can pledge for a warband of 5, 10 or 20 goblins. If you pledge for 5, they will be the 5 goblins you see here. If you pledge for 10 or 20 models you'll get 2 or 4 of each of them. However, you're more likely to be stretched, they'll be swapped with other miniatures so you get the minimum amount of doubles. And some of these goblins thrown in the larger warband will not be your average goblin canon fodder!
      If you want to add a Troll (or several!) To your goblin warband, just add $ 22 (per troll) to your pledge.

      About this project
       
       
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc is a narrative miniatures board game that plunges you into the heart of the Hundred Years’ War. In this dark, medieval universe, kings plot for the throne of France, and on the battlefield their heroic knights clash with foes both real and legendary.
      For more than a century, from 1337 to 1453, the fields of France rang to the sound of constant warfare. The Hundred Years’ War is one of the longest wars ever fought and is the source of many of our collective ideas about heroic knights of old. It was also a time of myths and legends, and a fervent faith in the literal truth of the doctrine of Holy Mother Church. It is this world of strife and faith that this game recreates.
      In Time of Legends: Joan of Arc, all the creatures that the medieval people thought were real, are real. Whether they are represented on tapestries, in stained glass windows, or in illuminated manuscripts, we take them at their word. It is this dark and epic universe that you will explore in the game’s many scenarios. Some are historical, with no taint of the whispered legends of strange creatures. Others are replete with the supernatural or (saints preserve us) demonic.
      You are free to control the army of miniatures that represent your heroes, knights and peasants as you wish in order to achieve your goals. You will decide who moves and where; whether your forces explore, pray, converse with locals, or simply charge into battle. But before we get to the field of glory, you must first choose your side.
        
      Joan Of Arc, Bertrand Du Guesclin, La Hire, Gilles de Rais & Jean de Dunois (miniatures are supplied assembled and unpainted)  The French have a very large army whose leaders follow the code of chivalry to the letter. These noble knights form the main striking force of the army, with their infantry taking a subservient role. The French employ few archers, but do hire efficient crossbowmen to fight alongside their men-at-arms. All these warriors fight on behalf of the King of France, who sees the war as a chance to reclaim lands lost to the English under earlier monarchs.
      The Black Prince, Falstaff, John Talbot, John Chandos & John of Lancaster (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The English king considers himself the legitimate heir to the throne of France, and there is some truth in this. In fact, he only failed to gain the crown because the French changed the rule of royal succession to stop him.
      The English army, though considerably less numerous than the French, are formidable combatants, who often have the best strategists. Their longbowmen wreak havoc on the battlefield, and have repeatedly bested the cream of French chivalry in battle. This is a slight that the French knights are determined to avenge.
      Archange Gabriel, the Unicorn & Angel (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The army of God is made up of powerful, heavenly beings like the angels and archangels. They fight their righteous battles alongside the lesser creatures of God, and the weary mortals who struggle with sin, but are devoted to their creator.
      The Holy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.
      The Witch, the Werewolf & the Ghost Warrior (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The Devil’s army is made up of all sorts of foul creatures: werewolves, demons, skeletons, dragons, witches, and many more. Countless fallen mortals march alongside this monstrous host, having cast aside their God and sold their souls for mere wealth or power. It is rumoured that in this dark time, when the End of Days has never seemed so close, even the Devil himself may make an appearance...
      The Unholy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.

      Another set of plastic minis for the Ogre game, or for fans of retro style tanks.
       
      I don't see a pledge that includes the Ogre game, looks like just minis this time.

      Hi,
       
      Hope you don't mind me sharing my little Kickstarter. It's about a collection of circus oddities in 1/35th scale. :)
