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 am trying to convince myself to only buy one dock set. 

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.

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.

      About
      Project Background:
      With every project we embark on, we always set out to make top quality products that you just can't find elsewhere. We enjoy pushing the boundaries of everyday items and turn ordinary objects into extraordinary objects. We typically like to work with Copper & Silver, but in order to form these objects, we first have to make a forming die. In order to make it be able to form these metals, we have to use a very strong, special steel that will never bend or dis-form. To achieve this, we have to use a ultra strong metal alloy, Tool Steel.  
      The Strongest Dice Ever Made!!!
      We want to set out and push the boundaries a little and create a dice that you truly will never be able to destroy! A dice that will put all other to shame and will literally be able to "crush" the competition! Is it really necessary to create a dice that you would never be able to destroy, it's debatable. But one could then argue that any dice besides a white plastic injected dice is not necessary either! I for one find the dice I use while playing games helps emerge me into the game and even give me that added confidence. Imagine taking these dice to your game night with your friends and "rolling" them out! Knowing that your dice is no match for your opponents, makes it half the fun and boosts excitement for the game! 
      Designs:
      We currently have three designs to choose from, Traditional Pips, Dragon, and Skull designs. Each of these designs have The Copper Kingdom shield logo as the one side. You may choose from any of these three styles and if you're getting multiple dice, you may mix and match styles to make up your custom dice collection! Style choices will be collected on the survey.
      Three Style of Choose From: Skulls, Pips & Dragons How The Dice Are Made:
      In order to create these dice, a combination of precision machining as well as hands on labor is needed. I will be commissioning a local machine shop to create the tool steel cubes. Once I have the special tool steel cubes, I will be individually engraving each dice. Each side will be individually carved, having to be hand turned six times (one for each side). The process to carving all six sides of the dice will take almost an hour per dice due to the strength of the steel and the small size of the engraver in order to create the detail. Unlike other materials that can allow the images to be stamped or formed with the designs, this steel won't allow it. From this point each dice will need to go into a special oven in order to harden the high end tool steel to its full strength. They will get heated to 1750 degrees for an hour, followed by a series of controlled lower step down temps to make the metal fully treated and as hard as possible. The final step will be sand blasting and polishing the dice to the desired finish. 
      Hardening & Tempering Process for these Dice takes 24 hours! How Strong Are These Dice?
      I will be having these dice made from a high quality Tool Steel. This is the same type of steel that the US Mint uses to stamp coins and is able to withstand hundreds of tons of pressure before it bends or breaks. The steel dice start out only a little stronger than most other steels, but after the designs are carved into the faces, they are forged into an oven at almost 1800 degrees! This process of heat treating and conditioning the special steel takes over 18 hours! Once this process is done however, the steel is incredibly strong. While it may not be be 100% indestructible, for all practical purposes it is. You can drop them, smash them, try to crush them in a high powered press, run over then with your car, hit them with a sledge hammer, and they will still hardly show a scratch!

      It ain't the first Flash Gordon RPG. It ain't the first Rocketships and Rayguns RPG. In fact, it's not completely an RPG; you need the Savage Worlds rules to play. But durned if I'm not interested, and they're talking miniatures for sale as well. This is one I'd like to see do pretty well; I'm in...

      KICKSTARTER: Flash Gordon for Savage Worlds!

      Not sure if I'm pledging for it, but here're the greens from the sculptor from their previous Wizards Conclave project, and current WW project.
       
      "The idea for this kickstarter struck us during our previous wizards project when our excellent sculptor produced a fantastic ice golem, rather than have yet another add-on in a kickstarter that had already gotten big enough we decided to start another project. As the previous kickstarter is well underway and this idea wouldn't have made sense any other time of year we decided to launch it as a Christmas special. "

      ABOUT THE PROJECT
      Aeon Trespass: Nymphs is a beautiful series of pin-up style miniatures inspired by Greek mythology and the Science Fantasy genre. Each Nymph is a highly detailed resin miniature in the 32mm scale – perfect for painters, collectors and wargamers alike – and comes with a scenic base, an art print and a hand-numbered authenticity note, everything enclosed in hand-stamped craft box. This Kickstarter is a limited collector’s run, which means the miniatures may not be available outside the campaign or, if they are available, they will be released as an unnumbered Encore edition.
      WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?  
      We are a group of passionate professionals, eager to leave our mark upon the miniatures hobby world. With this first limited collection we wanted to make sure our message was clear: we strive for original content of the highest quality. Our pin-up models were inspired by Greek paintings and sculptures. We’ve taken care to be inclusive, choosing to go for the varied natural body types over photoshopped magazine cover artificial beauty. Bottom line: we want you to be satisfied and awed by the hard work of our fantastic artists and sculptors. 
      WHAT IS AEON TRESPASS?  
      Art doesn’t exist in a void. It needs context to be fully realized and appreciated. The great paintings and sculptures are as much a fruit of the artist’s labor, as they are of the times they were created in. So too, we wanted to root our Nymphs in a world that is more tangible and ‘lived-in’. We love world-building and game design; cool giant monsters, grizzled anti-heroes and epic tales of adventure. All that – and much more! – awaits you in the world and game of Aeon Trespass. 
      The story takes places many years after Olympus fell - an event ominously called the Eschaton - when mortals have to deal with both, an unchecked technological progress and a return to more primal beliefs that precede even the old gods. It is a dark, dangerous world, stalked by kaiju-like monsters and visited by otherworldly entities, but one not without hope: courage, valor, loyalty and a penchant for beauty, they all shine the brightest in the pitch black of night.  
      NYMPHS
      The Nymphs are a group of powerful entities that sprang into being after the old gods of Olympus died. Their motivations are unknown and their methods inscrutable. What is known, is that they like to play with the fates of mortals... Below you will find a short description of each Nymph and their place in the world.
      This is just a small foray into that world: a wetting of your feet, if you will. Inspired by the great storytelling works of Dark Souls, Malazan Book of the Fallen and Kingdom Death, we’ve sprinkled small pieces of lore into those sections that will inform you further on the world of Aeon Trespass and point into the direction of its mysteries and secrets.
