Dwarven Forge Game Tiles


Recommended Posts

He appears to be wearing a beaver pelt. The paint seems expensive to me. I imagine craft paint would do the job and offer enough color variety.

 

Which (craft paint) colors are we seeing in the Porknoy paints for which tiles? I'll look at the video again, but would like some confirmation. Thanks!

I've added a first impressions review on my blog, here:

So far, really excited about this product and the opportunities it presents.

 

Edit: paint!

Craft paints, done up similar (but different enough I think) to the stock scheme Dwarven Forge use, I simply added a few more tones of stone and highlights. Details for paints, steps, etc are on my blog. Already thinking of new schemes to use if I decide to get more sets...

I received my order yesterday. DwarvenForge really exceeded my expectations with this kickstarter in every way imaginable. When I saw them unlocking extra after extra, I had resigned myself to delivery getting delayed a couple of months. I'm happily eating crow now.

 

Not only is the final product as good or better than what I expected, the whole process was flawless. The Fundafull site was a terrific post-KS tool, they provided consistent useful communication throughout, and somehow managed to complete on time, even with the late game addition of a custom paint set.

 

The tiles are detailed, solid, and do not feel at all cheap. I got the base dungeon grey, and the paint set Stefan put together. I painted up a few last night and his process is easy to follow, fast, and looks great.

 

I can't imagine a kickstarter going much better than this one went.

Just got my shipping e-mail. Says it is 39 lbs! I think I ordered 5 sets plus some options, though I really cannot remember now.

 

First KS I have seen that is fully meeting the EXPECTED dates. Well done Dwarven Forge.

 

Can't wait for them to come so I can play with them.

Oh crap...my mailman is gonna kill me. I got 5 with a lot of addons.

Eight and several add-ons... And I was already concerned about the 2x OGRE (28lb each) inbound next week.

 

Is it wrong to leave a beer on the stoop?

I got my two sets today- with the free addons the package was 15lbs.

The shipping email came after it had already arrived.

I'm pleased. I'll see how they paint up later- I want to go with a different color scheme than the prepainted ones, just to make them stand out.

      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
