Enlightened (5/8)



  1. Ours has arrived. Mrs. GG and I are pretty satisfied with what we got. It arrived without notification sowas something of a surprise. A much bigger, and heavier package than we realized it would be. In the end, we are glad we backed the KS. But are unsure if we will back the next one.
  2. Mrs. GG and I are still trying to figure out our final pledge plans. We just do not have the finances to buy everything we like so it will be very challenging to decide. And I am worried about sourcing this luxury item from a Chinese factory given the current state of the world.
  3. Mrs. GG and I are still waiting for our pledge to arrive. Getting more feedback from others on how they feel about their pledge would be nice to read.
  4. Everyone has their own financial priorities. Mrs. GG and I used our vacation money for our Wildlands pledge thanks to the Covid lockdowns. We do not have the same situation this time. However we do not smoke, I gave drinking several years ago, I do not have the Dodge Charger or Ford Mustang that I would like to (but then probably just have parked in a garage), we do not go out for fancy meals/movies/clubbing, we do not ski, own a boat anymore, etc etc. So maybe we can scrape together some money for a pledge but nowhere near as much as we would like. We also take into account that one day Little GG will get the benefit of such durable gaming terrain.
  5. We will try to sell some things to raise funds for the KS but our budget is much tighter now than it was when we pledged for Wildlands. I am surprised to see the KS do quite this well and I am happy for the DF staff but yeah, considering High Town in the future… we just do not have the kind of disposable income we wish we had. These new sculpts have the kind of quirky charm we think will go well with our Hagglethorn Hollow and Tabletop World terrain.
  6. Apologies Talae, I had not seen that original thread. How can we merge the threads? KS now live as well, my original post changed to reflect that. 🙂 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dwarvenforge/cities-untold-lowtown-ttrpg-terrain-by-dwarven-forge/description
  7. I think there has been sufficient complaints to equate to a controversy, if for no other reason than several people seem to disagree about the complaints being valid. And I do not think it is a case of people not paying enough attention. Not all “28mm tall” means the same thing, heroic or true scale, 28mm to the eyes or the top of the head? Look at how some folks have reacted negatively to the size of minis from Archon Studio‘s D&L 3 & 4 Kickstarters and that has resulted in Archon Studio deciding to make figures larger for D&L 5. As whether it may be common or not, I think a mention is one thing, concerted marketing is another… and this particular fulfillment is not common in how it is proceeding with its small test postings. Which also irks me. edit: A scale chart that only shows renders compared to other figures within the KS are not particularly useful to gauge how the final pieces will scale with figures from other manufacturers.
  8. All the controversy about model scale and delayed deliveries and they start promoting the next Kickstarter… it irks me.
  9. To be fair, it is not 350 Dollars for “a few hunks of plastic”. The artistic skill that goes into creating these deserves a bit more respect than that. I will admit to being a big fan of Dwarven Forge terrain and purchased quite a bit of it in the past. It is expensive but it is incredibly durable and well designed. The modularity increases replayability “freshness” and reduces storage demands. If you go with factory prepainted it is an additional expense but it saves you a lot of prep time. The factory paintwork may not be brilliant but it suffices until you can tweak it to your own personal tastes. And lookin at the second hand market prices it appears to retain value should you later decide you no longer require it
  10. The next Kickstarter from Dwarven Forge is now live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dwarvenforge/cities-untold-lowtown-ttrpg-terrain-by-dwarven-forge/description Lots of very cool modular structures and assorted accessories are anticipated. https://citiesuntold.dwarvenforge.com/?utm_source=Klaviyo&utm_medium=campaign&_kx=QdXBiGtqwnoPD8hDYv8iC9pfQaOczmErcXwhgqP5XY4a2NOq6VNaSGES_jRg8J2b.W4mvB8 The preview photos look to me to have more quirky charm than precious DF buildings. If you are curious, they showed more prototypes and talked about how the Kickstarter will work on Twitch. https://www.twitch.tv/dwarvenforgelive?_kx=QdXBiGtqwnoPD8hDYv8iC9pfQaOczmErcXwhgqP5XY4a2NOq6VNaSGES_jRg8J2b.W4mvB8&utm_medium=campaign&utm_source=Klaviyo
  11. Mrs. GG and I added the Horror add on Fantasy 2 KS and all this drama about unpaid shipping and delayed fulfillment does not fill me with confidence for that KS. 😕
  12. This comes as quite the surprise and I would have liked to have known this before pledging however the less Reaper has to rely on importing from China, the happier I will be.
