As far as size compatibility our system is designed to match up with Dwarven Forge from both floor thickness to wall height etc.  All of our tiles are 2x2 grids.  Please let me know if i can answer any other questions!

Glad to here all your tiles are designed to match up with Dwarven Forge floor thickness and wall height.

You are correct dschumm! For Foundations 4 Rise of the Mimics we signed up with Backerkit.com its a great pledge manager software and everything is handled by the application from credit card processing to shipping and its all self service so the backers can update address and selections as they see fit.  We will be using this again for Adventurescapes!

That actually answers my question. Thank you! If the wall height/floor thickness match dwarven forge, it should look fine next to my Dungeonstone! Now just to find the funds...

Here's a quick writeup of the samples I received.

 

Short version: Adventurescapes tiles are a perfect match for Dwarven Forge's tiles, and can be used interchangeably. The material is similar, and won't be prone to breaking and chipping. Adventurescapes tiles will be a nice addition to a DF layout. I'll follow up the review with an examination of the DF City Builder and DF Castle components, which I think these tiles would be a perfect match for stylistically.

 

As you'll see in the picture, the stair was a little high, but I think it's meant to be more of a raised platform for the Alchemist's equipment.

 

Adventurescapes 2x2 tavern floor tile was a perfect match for DF. I wasn't planning on getting the tavern tiles, but I think I will now because they will be a nice addition to my DF City Builder and Castle stuff. The marble floors would be perfect for a throne room, and the tavern/saltillo tiles would be a nice change up for DF buildings.

 

As for design, the regular 2x2 tavern floor tile I received looks to be a very nice representation of a saltillo tile, marble floor, or anything else along those lines where it is intended to be more refined than a dungeon. The Adventurescapes tile would work as a dungeon tile, but I prefer the worn irregular look of DF's dungeon and cavern tiles. But, since this is a tavern floor I like the design with sharper edges. This is the reason why I think it will work better with the city builder and castle sets than in a dungeon setting.

 

I haven't painted either tile yet, but my initial impressions are that the features are nicely done such that they will pick up the washes and drybrush well.

 

The first two pictures show the Adventurescapes tiles in a layout with DF KS-1's Chamber of Sorrows. As you can see the stair tile is just a little big, but it makes a nice transition piece from the table. That seems even more encouraging for Adventurescapes newly added beach tiles.

 

The second picture shows the Adventurescapes tiles with DF cavern tiles that I'm still working on painting.

 

The third picture shows the two samples I received by themselves.

 

The fourth picture shows the Adventurescapes tiles with painted DF dungeon tiles.

 

The fifth and sixth pictures are with DF dungeon tiles unpainted. I think this picture is important because compared to the painted DF tiles the unpainted Adventurescapes tiles don't really show the details. Here you can do a more direct visual comparison with DF.

 

The seventh and eighth pictures show the Adventurescapes tiles with Secret Weapon's Tombs of the Dark Sun. Sadly, I've only had time to prime TotDS. TotDS is much thinner than DF/Adventurescapes, so you wouldn't directly mix them, but the transition as rooms isn't bad.

 

The ninth, tenth, and eleventh pictures show the Adventurescapes tiles with Lunesdargent's Path of Osiris egyptian tiles. Unfortunately, those are also unpainted still, but you can see that the Adventurescapes tiles are a little closer... something like the Alchemist's lab leading to a secret Egyptian embalming room wouldn't be too bad.

Dang, that's comprehensive! ::):

 

RPG.net has a reviews section if you'd like to post a "preview" of the tiles.

 

OT: I also have the Secret Weapon Malice RPG dungeon tile set. This tile turned out way gaudy, but I got some new paints, so... ::P:

Damn you, ForgePrints! You've broken me. With your demanding suggestions from your backers and then immediately making them happen. With your notches. With your undead pelicans.

 

I'm thoroughly on Team Dock now.

 

You have to wait for a while until I have some expendable income, but that will occur in the near future. When it does, I'm you man.

I think needing to buy the beach will keep me to one dock. Maybe I can do a dock tile add-on and the beach instead of two docks.... but I wouldn't get a second Pelican. Some people have wanted to buy accessories only . If someone like that was local I would be happy to get a second set of tiles and split cost.

If I were to be careless with funds (or there was a lengthy pledge manager process with multiple chances to pay), I would likely go with:

Set of docks

Add on of docks x2

Beach x2

 

That would basically double my current pledge, though.

Given their history I expect them to delivery ahead of schedule. Certainly a lot more backers this time, and lots of painting to be done, but I am imagining you should have a couple months. Definitely time enough to get more money but not so long that it bumps into the Reaper deadline.

Argh!  must have that Pelican.. but I don't use 3D tiles.. gah....

The docks will actually be my first piece of 3d terrain.. I still plan on using my vinyl mat, but we always seem to have bad guys on platforms, dias, buildings, walkways etc and the docks can sub in nicely as discreet elevated pieces and clear up a lot of confusion we get from trying to represent higher areas on the mat.

 

Plus when I do get to a harbor area I will be in business.

The Hive Mind gains another "member"

Gooble blark. Gooble blark. One of us. One of us.

 

Gobble didn't work for me, Sonny being a pelican and all. Blark seems more like the sound of an undead pelican to me.

      the mighty Troll (work in progress)  
       
       
       
      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.
