Quite tempting. Got one group member backing this, I have some Hirst arts molds getting ready, but I am still tempted by this to get a 5 pack of my own . The durability is making it very hard to resist, to say nothing of the time it will take to cast the equivalent in Hirst blocks, and of course selling / gifting by the KS set should be easy enough.

 

Only thing saving my wallet is the wait till October and that the blocks are rectangular blocks, which gives me grade school flashbacks.

Yeah. I backed out for the second time. Money's fairly tight and there are too many other Kickstarters and other projects vying for my wallet's attention. The October delivery date decided me as well. I'm hoping to get off my backside and have my Hirst dungeon made by then.

Nah I am quite out. I am going to stick to Hirstarts. I dont like the fact that Stefan says the price will probably be double after the KS, the international shipping is ridiculous and I don't want to get locked in a product that will get a lot more expensive to keep up with.

I don't think he's said it will be double has he? That would put the pieces more expensive than resin which would defeat the purpose of building them in dwarvenite.

 

I think it's far more likely that the basic sets will sell at or just above the Kickstarter price ($65 per set) but you will have to pay shipping and you won't get the stretch goals. So maybe $70-$70 per set plus $20 shipping and no stretch goals. (Of course for international people, they're paying shipping anyway...)

 

The beauty of this project is the value you're getting through stretch goals. The hobby price will probably go up, which is why you need to get what you want NOW rather than later.

 

Like many of you, I haven't played a RPG in 20 years. But I'm in for $700 and hoping my son will grow up and want to play with me. :)

Found out about this 3 days ago. Just went in for 5 unpainted and two Dungeon Dressing. I was thinking of adding the floor, but can easily enough make a floor patch from wood, should I find I need it a lot.

 

I also figure that this will make for an interesting Warlord set-up.

He really said it could be up to two times the price and that you should get in now and get all of it you would need for a lifetime, because of that. He mentioned it in the kickstarter comments.

 

Interesting. I'd like to see your source on that if you know where it is. I don't see how that's possible given 2x cost = more than the cost of doing the pieces in resin which defeats the purpose of the KS. This KS serves two main purposes: Lower their cost and lower the consumers cost. They save money because dwarvenite is cheaper for them to produce than resin, and (likewise) this reduces the cost to consumers. I think if you heard that somewhere, it was probably off the cuff conjecture from Stefen, since the last thing they want to do is make their products even more expensive than they are now.

 

Maybe though... all the more reason to buy what you need now, I guess. :)

 

Two times KS prices = $130 a set, which is approximately $30 more than a set will run you in resin right now. Given their primary goal of reducing costs to buy their product, this doesn't fly. Dwarvanite also weighs less. Come October, when these pieces are available via retail, pricing should be less expensive than their resin models both for cost to produce, buy, and ship.

How much cheaper is a Dwarvenite Set right now than a standard resin set?

 

I don't really know off hand what sets are comparable. I've looked at their site and it seems like a resin set is about $150 - $200 iirc, but their product link appears to be broken right now. So about a $30 - $80 difference?

 

Found a catacombs x47 piece set for $150 on their site. http://www.dwarvenforge.com/sitenews/item/9-catacombs-set

      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.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
