    Dwarven Forge KS 6.66 - Hellscape

    I have no Lava terrain of any kind, but this is so much better than any other both in looks and function that it is time to get some.

    Artemis 2.0 By Kev White

    The 40mm is a beautifully sculpted miniature I would have had no use for. The 75mm is a beautifully sculpted miniature that I have no use for. If the armored one gets made and is fully clothed and has a spear it would be a fantastic Athena statue in games and setups, but I expect it with still show a little to much for a Athena proxy. If the actual representation of the Greek goddess Artemis gets done it would also be useful in games and setups. I hope this KS is successful for no other reason than I like to see artists push their talents, but I really do not have the space or money for resin sculpts so my opinion should not really influence Kev's sculpts.

    Axe N Shield Premium Terrain Risers: Elevate your game!

    The seller is a great guy who has been on the Dwarven Forge forums for years, and if you are looking for good looking and well done acrylic rod flight stands he is your best choice IMO. He sells ones as small as 1"wide by 1"tall one listed above and larger ones such as 2"wide by 12" but I do not see those larger ones listed, so you may need to contact him. But he really does not have anything modular like the Axe N Shield Terrain Risers https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/axenshield/axe-n-shield-premium-terrain-risers-elevate-your-g?ref=user_menu Not sure how this one would work with Reapers Stygian Barge.

    Atlantis Wood Elves 5/22

    Perhaps they watch The Dragon Prince on Netflix, their elves have a touch of a Tiefling look.

    So now that MFC has had a successful KS and it all stayed positive both on their KS comments and over at Dwarven Forge and here. I figured I would play devils advocate and ask what do you think is the weakest of the sets that they offered and why? I personally want the Bridges & Barricades to add to my game but keep thinking the free ladders should have been added to it to bring it up in value. And while at first I was on board for the rocks the more I look at them they just do not look detailed enough. I like the trees a lot but worry that more than a few sets will look too repetitive in shape. My purpose in asking is not to bash anybody who pledged, I pledge and I just wondered if anybody else has opinions that while negative are still constructive as to why you went with one of their sets and not another.

    MenhirGames: 28mm plastic set "Dark Age Outpost"

    Back in the Fall of 2015 I had a feeling this KS’s deal was to good to be true, but I took a chance. Working together Nick and Ramiro had had two successful all be they small Kickstarters and looked like they were ready to do more. These two youngish gentlemen thou separated by 6,000 miles, culture and some what by language had dreams of furthering their careers and creating something fun for gamers. Why did I take a chance, because it was Viking terrain and durable Viking terrain for gaming is super rare. But having read this KS comments section over the years and now Ramiro’s blog post it is even easier to see it never had a chance. Even if Ramiro had not played loose with the money, the moment they moved from the original idea of soft metal molds to hard metal molds it was doomed by costs. Now they and we can debate if they had done x or y of z it would have worked out, but mistakes were made, and trusts were broken. I hate to lose money but in true I have waisted far greater than this KS on food I bought and then did not eat. In the end what bothers me most is that the world does not have more durable Viking terrain for gaming.
  9. Normally I would say NO! to supporting any KS if its creator had not fulfilled another KS, but I have with two companies that I have done this for because of their great track records. Midlam Miniatures does small metal KS and does start new KS before I have gotten my minis from their last. Dwarven Forge does huge KS and has in the past started a KS because they needed to keep their next manufacturing slot with the factory while it's last KS was shipping to the U.S.

    The Path to El Dorado - Aztec Dungeon Tiles

    I see you were talking about Quetzacoalt not Tetlcoatl, but you can still try to get it from the original maker whose KS just fulfilled.

    If the KS had just stayed with the green trees and the grey rocks their logic of everything painted made sense from a factory stand point, but now that they have autumn trees and will soon have tan rocks it makes a little less sense. At this point it is just about not having to create different pledge levels which I guess is a good enough reason to limit the choice to different painted colors, but it does mean a potential lose of backers who love to paint.
