Dwarven Forge Game Tiles


Recommended Posts

 

What? Is that why the number hasn't gone anywhere really today?

 

Eh? They're up $175,000 today before this Amazon problem. It (almost) is the strongest day of the campaign. Staying on track they would have already hit the $1.8million mark.

 

Not really much to say about it other than Kickstarter has notified Amazon who is working on the problem. If you're still trying to get through, some people claim that using the Kickstarter mobile app has been successful for them.

 

 

Sorry I mispoke I meant why it hadn't moved in the last few hours. Boy though it really took off after amazon got their stuff fixed!

Is anyone else considering modding the peices with magnets in the base so they can use a gridded metal surface (most likely a white board or similar) as a play surface and easily secure the peices to 'em for use?

Actually, I'm considering drilling and adding magnets on the edges. I have a sizable collection of Nin Gonost dungeon pieces and the thing I love most about them is how easy it is to set them up and break them down while you're playing to show what the party sees. I would love to be able to do the same thing with the DF tiles.

I considered that, but I think that matching magnet polarity to make that work is going to reduce flexibility and you'd probably want at least one magnet each side of the tile to link them together which is going to add considerably to the overall cost.

 

It's possibly going to cost even more than one each side - if I went that route I'd want to do two magnets each side to reduce the tiles twisting out of alignment. Add in the need to be very precise in magnet placement and I think I'll just go with the simple solution - single magnet in the base of the primary peices to somewhat secure them in place, and a gridded 'magnetic' whiteboard surface to place them on (and potentially draw non-regular shapes on). The peices that fit 'on top' of the existing tiles (doors, other dungeon dressing items) I might either leave loose or base with steel to give them some stickability while being able to position them appropriately.

I thought of drilling holes for pegs in mine.

I passed my will saves this time, and only ordered the basic set. I figure the parts I really want will be available later; I only wanted a few things from each addon.

 

Huzzah for all who contributed. Kickstarter makes me feel like a venture capitalist. What's the next big one?

I'm going lower tech, using poster tack to hold the 'on top' parts and Velcro tape on Masonite boards to hold the tiles. That way, I can build rooms prior to the game but still keep the map unseen.

The problems I have with velcro are - unable to 'slide' tiles attached by it,, and the surface you use for it can't really be used for anything else.

 

It'll work, don't get me wrong, but... honestly I think I'd prefer to use the tiles entirely lose over it. What might work better as a low tech alternative is simply sticking them down with blutack.

For me it's the East Asian Village Kickstarter (ends in 2 days), especially since they've added stuff that is very useful for above ground encounters that is pretty generic for D&D and not limited to East Asian campaigns. The ship is something I've been waiting for in 28mm for a long time, as is the fishing village. And the peasant village will be very useful to me for building town encounters. Dwarven Forge is great for dungeon adventures and I love their product, but I also like to have stuff for town and wilderness adventures.

My next big money drain is looking to be the 3rd CSM one which just opened: Need some crazy monsters to populate all these crazy dungeon tiles...

My apologies if this has been mentioned before.

I came across this Kickstarter late, but both my wife and I were most impressed with the whole concept and laid down a pledge for two sets, plus a couple of add-on sets. Hopefully surpise our D&D DM (son in law) later in the year :)

Did anyone else participate in the Kickstarter at all? It was very successful.

      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
