Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

Recommended Posts

I got my PM email. Haven't had a chance to think through it yet.

 

I was hoping for elevations and trees. Am now thinking I will try and build a pledge around the natural bridge, rope bridge, stairway to violence, and the new forest terrain trays. It is going to take some finesse to figure out.

Got mine today as well.  It's all about the back half of the campaign for me!  The ice caves and onward.  And maybe more trees.  28mm forest terrain isn't hard to make but, for me, it's really hard to store and maintain without being crushed!

Weird. Natural bridge and stairway were my 2 must haves.

Forests were my must haves. I ended up sacrificing cavern stuff on the alter of getting more forests. I did add the big terrain variety pack too. Gonna get a lot of use out of that one.

What's the name so I can check? Right now debating Cave Pools (a bunch of mid terrain trays and a bunch of pieces) and actual terrain trays set (for a 12x12) and maybe banks/stalagmites set. Those might be roughly similar cost options but give me different things.

Locks so far:  adventure pack 4 (some fun scatter and variety of small trays) natural bridge & stairway (big pieces).

If I was going big, probably forest terrain trays and a few things to go with.
To combine with Tablescapes and stuff I mentioned above, what's the one (moderately priced) piece/set you think I'm missing? Looking for suggestions, please.

I just went crazy and added most of everything I would want. It is over $2k, which is insane. I need to dial that way back now...

Your lucky! I am looking at about a third to half of what I want and I am already just over $3k.  I really need to want less.

I'm being judicious due to exchange. The latest update with the Epic Crystal Corner look awesome. And then I see that add on, and I only want that giant crystal, which doesn't look that big. Still having so many problems deciding.

 

Possibly looking at stairway, natural bridge, banks, trifecta, cave cliffs, smugglers cove tray  (elevation, negative space, big items, tray/water) which is waaaay more than I want to spend but still only about 360 w/ exchange.

My alternate with webbed lair and cave pool is about 12$ less painted (80$ unpainted) but gives me more small terrain trays with variety but less elevation and negative space, and smaller terrain. Gah. Not sure what to mix with my tablescapes (didn't get any stackers).

Your not going to like this suggestion, but the easiest would be to remove all the forest and forest related stuff.  You may have to wait but you can get it all a year or two down the road.  But on the other hand you could just forget that suggestion and stick with your list as is.

You can try switching all the painted to unpainted.  I’m not sure how much that’ll save you you though.

This might be the answer as it puts things right around $1500

I am not going to discuss how much i spent on this round.  I will say that i absolutely adore the forest and i have uses both for gaming and for decoration.  I keep a small village in the house that goes through seasons with the rest of the year.  now it can have trees and a witches cottage in the deep woods.  As for painting:  the dungeon tiles were easy paint jobs and required little to no effort.  i would not want to try and paint the forests, i would spend way too much time with them and wind up not getting more than 10% complete before i moved on to something else.  Then i would have pricey stuff i am not using...

 

I know my weaknesses. :B): I was able to resist the dungeons 2 and the citybuilder, but with the forest, i was lost before i even started.  the best part is its good for any scale from 10mm to 45mm as the trees change from heavy second growth forest to new growth colony.  I can use them for CAV, for RPGs, frostgrave, and even shadowrun and scatter terrain for Car Wars and Warhammer Kill Team and 40k.

      About
        This project aims to expand the Ulvheim ruin into a full featured ruin city for your home 3D printer. You can already download the first two releases from thingiverse for free. There is also an earlier release with smaller houses, also available for free. Click the image to see them.
      Previous Ulvheim releases The pledge rewards are STL-file downloads. I will share the files with Dropbox and the download will be available for years. If you have access to a 3D printer you can print as many copies of the models as you like. You can also vary the scale for more variety. Any type of 3D printer works but FDM is the most economical. Most models will fit inside a 120x120mm print bed. Printed parts can then be painted.
      The separate pieces fit together using a clip, also printed. This way you can build several different configurations with the same printed parts. You can of course glue it together if you need extra stability.
      Clip system I have been making 3D printable terrain since 2016. I have done one kickstarter before. All files from that kickstarter are available in my store. But read on to the pledges before you buy anything there. I also have a Patreon page and all models done for that is released for free on thingiverse. This includes the previous three Ulvheim releases.
         
      As base goal, I will create these expansions that are compatible with earlier Ulvheim ruins (type B).
      Base goal 1 - Roof set
      This set gives you the ability to create roofs on your buildings. Not everything has to be ruined. You can with these models build complete buildings, from the smallest shed to the largest castle. The roofs will build up like stairs. There will of course be options for half ruined roofs.
      The roofs will be made to fit the Ulvheim A buildings. This is the smaller complete buildings.
      The images below is only very rough sketches showing what is possible. The base goal does not include roofs for L-shaped or T-shaped building. Nor is it possible to put roofs on the hexagonal tower etc.
      Whole modular roofs Modular roof ruin Base goal 2 - More wall variations
      Nothing beats variation and more options. Two new basic walls with lots of ruined options. One solid style and one arc style. Below are some sketches of possible layouts. The final layout is not decided yet.
      Solid wall sketches Arc walls sketches Base goal 3 - Corners for round towers
      Three new types of corners. With these you can build hexagonal, octagonal and decagonal towers (6, 8 and 10 sides). You will be able to build really high towers. There will be ruined options.
      The base goals does not include floors or roofs for these.
      Hexagonal and octagonal towers Base goal 4 - Horizontal ruins
      The solid walls are made into ruins where the cuts go more horizontal. So you can build a long jagged ruin wall. There will be a couple of variants, from the available solid walls. there will be transitions from whole walls.
      3 solid walls made into horizontal ruins These are the pledge levels.
      Ulvheim supporter
      If you just want to cheer me on. I will send you a bunch (5) of Terrain4Print stickers. I will also create a unique sticker for this kickstarter and send you a bunch (5).
      Ulvheim worker
      If you are on a limited budget and only want a limited selection, this is for you. You will get the base goals and about one third of the unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.
      Ulvheim settler
      This is the complete Ulvheim download at a reduces price for the first backers. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.
      There is a limited number of these so be quick.
      As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers.
      Ulvheim burgher
      This is the complete Ulvheim download. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.
      Ulvheim necromancer
      This the complete Ulvheim download plus all my old premium files (from the shop). You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. As soon as the kickstarter payments are processed you will get a download link the the premium files. These are STL-file downloads.
      Ulvheim architect
      If you want me to create something custom from your specification, this is for you. Together we will work out the details. It can't be something huge or overly complicated but expect a handful of models. For instance, wall tiles with a special symbols. A couple of special statues or gargoyles.
      The files must match the general Ulvheim theme.
      I prefer to make these models available to Settlers, Burghers and Necromancers too. But if it is something special you want exclusively, it can be arranged.
      If you take this pledge, contact me and describe what you have in mind. This way we can agree on a reasonable level.
      As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers.
      Add on: Stickers
      I will create a unique set of stickers for Ulvheim. Supporters, Settlers and Architects will get them for free.
      Workers, Burghers and Necromancers have to add $10 to have them. Simply add $10 to your pledge. I will sort it out manually after the project is done. You will get 5 Terrain4Print stickers and 5 Ulvheim kickstarter stickers.
      There are lots of more stuff to make for this. This project will have stretch goals. The more pledges that come in, the more stuff will be made. The first three stretch goals are decided already. When they are unlocked, there will be more made available if there is enough interest.
      Since I reside in Sweden and use SEK (Swedish crowns) I present stretch goal as % instead.
      Stetch goal 1 - Battlements 133% (20k SEK)
      If you want to make a castle type building, playing siege scenarios. This will make it possible. It is basically a low wall with a strip of floor and battlement fitting around both convex and concave corners. The sketch below shows a corner piece for a convex corner. There will of course also be ruined battlements.
      Stairs made will fit against the battlements.
      Battlement sketch Stetch goal 2 - Windows 167% (also for workers)  (25k SEK)
      Two new walls with smaller openings, like windows. This is a sketch of one of them. It will print in two parts, without support. It has a big arc. Inside it a thinner wall with two smaller arcs. The inside of the smaller arcs is open to make windows.
      Windowed wall Stretch goal 3 - Rubble piles 200% (30k SEK)
      Eight piles of rubble, big and small. Stones in various format, pieces of wood, broken statues etc. There will be round piles and also piles with one or two flat sides to fit against walls and corners.
      Two piles of rubble Possible stretch goals
      If the three stretch goals above are unlocked, we will have a vote on the next.
      Big set of stairs more elegant Floor set with wooden planks instead of stone Pillars Walls with door openings Relief walls Small balcony (from single wall) Big modular balcony Interior balcony Wall fountain Wall statue Wall with big gate Modular foundation to put everything on Cemetary set with walls, gate, tombstones and mausoleums Risks and challenges
      I have been creating 3D terrain for quite some time, including a previous successful Kickstarter as well as my many Patreon projects. I feel I have always delivered what I promise (and have often over delivered), however this is not my full-time job and so there exists the possibility that full delivery might take some time if all the stretch goals are unlocked. My aim is that the models will be delivered as soon as they are ready - so base goals should be on time with any of the work-in-progress stretch goals being released piecemeal upon their completion. 
      Personal/work commitments are the only real challenge, but I have a very caring family that fully supports me and understands my passion for producing my 3D creations.

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      Just noticed this KS was posted here. Only 53 hours left....

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wowbuildings/wowbuildings-further-space-adventures-3d-print-stl/description
       
      Here we are folks, WOWBuildings is expanding further into space, with the infrastructure now for several types of scenarios, this KS will be a mix of vehicles and Buildings so you will have an even bigger range of choices for your tabletops. all will come in STL format and cuts will be made where needed so boot up those 3D printers once again and jump on board for what hopefully will be a great sack full of goodies to enjoy.
      I am adding a couple of special adds that are for personal print use only as a little treat for you top end backers, all files will be initially 28mm scaled (but slightly over scaled to allow for GW sized figures) and optimized for 15-32mm scales so hopefully something for all.
      Again human based faction designs for this KS with other races in the pipeline if all goes well, so hello again and as usual keep the feedback coming and if you want anything specific added then just ask, if it can be done it will be so
      Stretch Goals as you see will start at £1000, and £500, but this time i am toying with adding some £250 jump points too here and there to add to the fun.
      I have tried to keep the pledge level prices as low as i can as well including the licence which is an absolute bargain price for this KS as a thank you for continued support and to help with those after Xmas blues.
      £10 Road Builder
