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.

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.

      From the Kickstarter page:
      The Basius Max collection is a DOUBLE SIDED series of large solid purple resin pads, full of jaw-dropping hand-sculpted negatively recessed texture
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/984996675/basius-max?ref=friends_launched
       

      Basius stamps are one of the most talked about hobby tools that I've never tried, mainly because they never seem to make it to retail.  This time I'm not letting frugality get in the way of awesome bases!

      This is a second edition of a game that had some kickstarter success last year.  The project ends in about a week.  A solo game, for those long, lonely nights at sea.
       
      No miniatures, although the price tag is pleasantly miniature in comparison with the bloated behemoths rampaging their way across kickstarter at the moment, devouring available funds.  I know nothing about this game except that the box undeniably very excellent and the custom dice look neat-o.
       
      Cheers.

      Welcome to the world of Nemesis! This new board game, designed by Adam Kwapiński, is the result of a collaboration between Awaken Realms (creators of This War of Mine: TBG, The Edge: Dawnfall and Lords of Hellas) and Rebel (creators of Drako, Dream Home and K2) .It's a 1-5 players semi-cooperative Sci-Fi horror where you and your friends try to survive while attempting to fulfill your secret objectives that may sometimes collide. It will also enable full co-op as well as solo play experience. 
      Nemesis offers one-of-a-kind gameplay, that you currently won't find anywhere else in the board game world. It has been in professional development for over three years, so it already plays very well, provides good balance and contains a multitude of interesting mechanics, as proven by the prototype reviews below. 

      If you like Sci-Fi survival settings and ships swarming with alien life forms, you will love it - and if that genre was never on your radar, this game is likely to change your mind! 
       
       *We will be lagging a little bit with the Stretch Goals presentation due to too high funding speed! 
       
       
       
       *Out of all reviews / movies two were paid: Cardboard Rhino (rules presentation / tutorial how to play that took a lot of time to make!) and Man vs Meeple (which is a preview showing the game in detail). All other videos were not paid.
