Dwarven Forge KS5 Back to the dungeon

Recommended Posts

The elevation platforms will not be in the current shipment to EU. Anything that contains those is missing for now.

I only ordered unpainted addons, because I had the original dungeon set. So I'm pretty sure it's going to get delivered while I'm on vacation. How well do you think it'll handle the 90 degree heat?

You might need to boil some of the thinner pieces if the warp, but they should all be fine. This stuff is near indestructible.

I got a pre-shipment notification for the rest of my order except the bridge.

So the latest update puts european wave 1 in germany in a few days. They expect 3 weeks of customs, shipping, etc. So... maybe in september if we are lucky. :)

My stuff is supposed to arrive Monday. Like @gmpathfinder, it's pretty much just pieces to add to the absurd quantity of other DF stuff (including seven(?) boxes of resin pieces; I've been buying their stuff for a long time) I already own.

 

I'm not much attracted to their encounter/room-style packs; too specific. I like much more generic tiles. Between the late arrival of this set, the high prices of the new things, and the encounter focus, I'm probably sitting out DF6.

I was sent a pre-shipment email a while back, but never a shipping email with tracking info. Think I should be worried?

I got almost all the rest of my order last week -- same day as my Secret Weapon stuff. Secret Weapon hadn't given me any notice, but DF gave me two tracking numbers from UPS. So when Fedex showed up with a single box, I was very confused! I still need my Khri add-ons and my elevation box. My buddy got his elevation box, so I don't know what the difference is.

Hmmm... *ahum, cough cough* I do wonder where my stuff is... *cough* Maybe I should start w-o-r-r-y-i-n-g?

 

*expects stuff tomorrow* :)

Still waiting on my notice. :(  Unfortunately I was moving right about the time that they started shipping so I changed my order to ship all at once so I didn't have to deal with trying to figure out which address to ship to, etc. At least with the latest update it sounds as though I should get a shipping notice soon. :)

I got my pre-shipment notice for my third, and final, shipment last night. Soon I'll have my hands on an elevation platform. Really looking forward to seeing it.  And 3 add-on packs to flesh out my khri colony.

Got my stuff other than the bag yesterday. Looks good.

 

And since it got to me before the end of KS6, I might take another look at that as well.

 

KS6 is turning out to be quite the KS. A lot of amazing stuff in it, and the way it's broken down into adventure packs, you can get some highlight pieces without having to spend $1000. That's really nice. For someone whose looking to fill an entire table with terrain, this will be more expensive than KS2  by a pretty wide margin (but the new pieces are nicer and more dynamic than the earlier ones).  But for someone who wants to pick and choose, I think they've done a fantastic job this time breaking things down so people can just get what they want without paying for what they don't want.   Definitely worth a look in the final hours, especially now that the packs are filled in with stretch goals. 

 

 

One thing they've done this time, which I absolutely love, is the Deadliest Dungeon Designs conference videos. They really highlight the encounters in a fun way.  The actual encounter breakdown videos are great, too. Since DoD, they've done a much better job showing people what they're really getting.

I just took a look and there's a bunch of stuff I'd like to have, just not at the price (including time) that DF is asking. Fair enough and no hard feelings.

 

They get to set the price that they want to set; I get to pay what I want to pay ... or not.

      About
      The concept for Mother of Dragons was born a few years ago.
      I still recall seeing the beautiful illustration made by Stéphane Wootha Richard posted on his Facebook profile and I fell in love with her immediately – I knew immediately that I wanted to bring her to life in miniature form.
      Fortunately, Stéphane was also very excited about the idea of a collaboration.
      We were inspired and driven to start working on the project that we both felt so passionate about and now, with much pride we can finally share this project with you all.

      What you see here required 2 years of committed development, during which time, our team has created and implemented many variants until we made of it a full range, indeed in addition to the varied scale of the main subject , you will find unique versions such as the bust or the lovely "super deformed" miniature. In fact, this is the characteristic of all of our Kickstarter campaigns — we always enjoy experimenting with new products and offering you something you've never seen before.
      Every successful kickstarter campaign enable us to share our dreams with the most supportive community in the world.

      In Mother of Dragons you will find exciting new figures as well as numerous artefacts (artefacts? – I hear you say. Exactly)! Be ready for an ancient Dragon Jar, or a real dragon’s tooth. One thing is certain. They will not be the only exclusives to catch your attention.

      Now with your continued help and support; it’s time to bring this project to life!
      So why support this project?
      Well, first because you’re a hobbyist and a modeller and you can’t wait to lay your hands on a new figure.
      Second, because the Mother of Dragons will also appeal to your collector’s side; she will be the “queen” of your showcase, no matter the scale, you choose.
      Apart from the main subject of this campaign, as usual, we’re offering great deals, rewards, add-ons and freebies, indeed Kabuki Studio places great importance to Kickstarter and for this reason the benefits/conditions offered will never be seen again outside the campaign, not even in the pledge manager/late backer's option.

      Riccardo Agostini (Italy) – 1/50 scale
      Keigo Murakami (Japan) – 1/24 scale

      KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!
       
       
      What is this, and how does it work I hear you say?
      Well it’s simple. At some point during the campaign we will show some super-secret stuff that isn’t quite ready yet. You, as Kickstarter backers will have the exclusive first chance to grab some of this cool stuff.

      Any funds gathered from this boost will be added to the total campaign fund and will also go towards unlocking goodies for the qualifying pledges
       
       
      It’s simple, we need your support in order to fund the project and unlock all the amazing items we’ve designed!
      To donate, select a pledge amount and reward on either the right-hand side of a project page or after clicking the “Back this project” button and selecting “Continue”. From here you’ll be taken to a page where you can continue as a guest, or login if you already have an account.
      If you would like to continue as a guest, just enter your email address and select “Continue as Guest”.
      Next, fill in your payment details and take a minute to review your pledge details. When you’re ready, just click the green “Pledge” button and the job is done! Easy, isn’t it?

      During the campaign, thanks to your help, we will unlock several new rewards so you may want to review your current pledge, well how do you do that? To change your pledge amount, visit the project page and click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and then select "Change your pledge" on the following page.
      From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or choose a new reward tier you'd like to pledge for and your pledge amount will update automatically.
      If you don't want to receive a reward, select "Make a pledge without a reward" and enter your new pledge amount. Alternatively, you may change your pledge amount within the reward tier modal.

      Note: you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded.
      Everything will be dispatched from Roma (Italy).
      You don’t have to be worried about customs tax because we’ll provide a special invoice for that purpose.
      All the pledges will be posted through DHL Express and the delivery time is brutally fast!
      18-24 hours for Europe
      2-3 days for rest of the world (customs clearance included)
      So even the delivery time is a “problem solved”.
      Average costs:
      up to 1kg to Europe 14.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to USA/Canada 19.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Asia 31.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Australia/South America 38.50 Euro
      We removed “Poste Italiane” from the carriers choice because the price difference is almost zero and the reliability of that carrier is particularly low, that means you could save 3 or 4 euro from shipping cost, but have great delays in your delivery or pay more in custom taxes, or even have the parcel lost.

      About
      Many years ago, I accidentally started a story about a man who accidentally started a war, and that was a wild ride to the end, or at least, to what I thought was the end. Until I accidentally started a short story sequel that became a novel that made it clear that if we're going to start a war, we should at least see it through to the conclusion of its opening stages.
      Which is where this book comes in.
      Some Things Transcend is the second book in the Princes' Game series, which picks up directly where Book 1, Even the Wingless, leaves off. This is a six-book series, and only Book 1 has a paperback or audio edition. It's time to change that.
      But wait! You say. I'm one of your fans, but I don't know this series. Why should I contribute to this? And lo, I say to you: the Princes' Game series interweaves with most of the other "modern" Peltedverse novels. Don't believe me? Have a look at this sketch of a timeline, where the stories of Reese and Hirianthial are in green, and the events of Princes' Game in red:
      Even if epic war stories with violence, "adult situations," headgames, crazy redemption arcs, alcohol and drugs, revolts and revolutions, more crazy redemption arcs, and moral, ethical, and philosophical discussions are not your cup of tea, the events of the PG series will inform future series in the Peltedverse, which I am already at work on!
      But wait AGAIN! You say. What if I've never read any of your work at all! And then I would say to you, "You can start with the free novel Earthrise" if you want a space opera romp in a universe populated with friendly aliens, fuzzy critters, space elves, and humans all working together, or you can start with the novel Mindtouch if you want a gentle "forever friendship" story of college students coming of age, or you can leap right into the R-rated, HBO-compatible Princes' Game series with Even the Wingless. Because epic war stories with violence, "adult situations," headgames, crazy redemption arcs, alcohol and drugs, revolts and revolutions, more crazy redemption arcs, and moral, ethical, and philosophical discussions!
      But wait a THIRD time! I'm not into HBO-compatible anything! Or I don't like difficult stories without preparation! Don't worry, I've got you covered. I have a set of summaries of the entire series so you can read "ahead" and know what to prepare yourself for. (It's full of spoilers, but that's the point!) Go pick it up! Or don't, if you hate spoilers and prefer surprises!
      Stretch Goals
      So, some stretch goals! Just in case, even though this is only a week!  
      $750 - Are you tired of bookmarks yet? I hope you're not tired of bookmarks yet! At $750, everyone who gets a physical reward will receive one! You need more bookmarks!   $1000 - I will write a short story about Vasiht'h telling Sehvi about his experiences during the events of Dreamhealers 5, "Family"! You know you want more Vasiht'h and Sehvi time. Everyone will receive an e-copy! $1500 - Wait, another short? Yes, absolutely! This one will be a vignette, with Jahir's POV of acquiring the jackal chest and amulet rampant and communicating with 'the ambassador' during the events of Wingless. Everyone will receive an e-copy! Over $1500 - I will wiggle a lot! And then tuck that money away to pay for the audiobook, which will probably cost about $3000. No, I am not expecting you all to hit $3000 in a week. I love y'all but please, buy groceries and stuff. <3 But Jaguar! You say. Why are your stretch goals so modest! Why don't you do Chatcaava plushes! We would totally be on board with Chatcaava plushes! 
      Because, dear backers, I don't want to fall down on this job for you, and that means humble goals. *bows* I admit Chatcaava plushes would be adorbs though. 
      But Jaguar, AGAIN! What if we want more vignettes or shorts!? 
      I'm not opposed to this idea. Tell me what you're interested in seeing. >.>
      Oh, and before I forget, the original for the Collector Level:
      Risks and challenges
      As much as possible I've streamlined this one so it takes very little by way of work. I've gotten very good at packing and shipping things!
      I think the biggest risks are:
      1. I get hyper and start throwing in prizes and things that I shouldn't because I like running myself to ragged shreds doing stuff;
      2. I get too perfectionist about the things and fuss them to death over millimeter differences in whitespace only I am going to care about.
      I think I'll be able to handle #2 since I've done OVER NINE THOUSAND of these Kickstarters. It's #1 you all are going to have to help me with. Sit on me if I start gibbering about something that sounds impossible, please?
