Dwarven Forge Game Tiles


Recommended Posts

Starts Monday!

I wasn't expecting this!

They have good quality products, I have many of their dungeon and cavern sets.  Seems this Kickstarter is for a less expensive material, which may be a good idea.  Hope it is still pre-painted.

I think stretch goals on here could be amazing.

 

Here is their website if you want to check out their stuff...

Dwarven Forge is proud to announce the launch of our newest product -- Game Tiles -- on Kickstarter at 10am, Monday March 25th.

 

Game Tiles represents our dream product, made possible in part by the well-known crowd funding site, Kickstarter.com. We hope you will visit our campaign on Monday when it launches.

 

Game Tiles are fully compatible with all our other sets, but they are made out of a lighter, more durable material that also is less expensive -- especially if we hit our Stretch Goals. Complete information will be released on Monday, March 25th.

 

Thank you for your years of support, and thank you for any help you can give us on this project. We cannot wait for Monday to show the world our new stuff!

@SamuraiJack The new material? Sounds good, I have the old resin stuff, its great, but heavy when you have a whole box of it, and always scared it will crack or break if dropped (one cavern stalagmite did, glued right back on though). This product beged to be in a more inexpensive, lightweight and durable material, I hope this is it! :)

I told them to come over here and post because we'd be talking about it.. I'm trying to think of a suitable comparison because I know it feels like something I've held before, but I can't remember what it was.. Its really light and will probably bounce if you drop it..

I wish there was a KS release schedule posted at the begining of every year so I could dictate where I spend my limited KS budget better. If I knew this was coming out, I might have spent less on previous KS's and used it here lol.

It's made out of the same type of material that Gale Force Nine uses for their 'D&D Underdark' and 'Battlefield in a Box' line. As long as they are painted well...the soft rubbery material doesn't bother me. This whole switch was to make D.F. products more affordable to the general gaming public. I don't think they will replenish the old sets. If you notice on their website over half of their product line is "Out of Stock" and normally takes them 2 years to replenish. So, I don't think that's gonna happen anymore. Say goodbye to the old stuff and say hello to the new Kickstarter line! If you got an old set...you're lucky...it's now a collectible. I've been getting their stuff for years...since 1998 starting with the Ogre's Den. Ahhhh, memories.

I'm super excited about this Kickstarter. There is not yet much info available as they have said they will release more details all at launch of their campaign, but I'm a huge fan of their products to date. Everything they have done in the past has had amazing attention to quality and detail, both in sculpting and painting, and they have always had amazing customer service. I've collected so much of their stuff over the years that I added a room to my house to be able to store it. :-0

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
