Dwarven Forge Game Tiles


Recommended Posts

Does anybody know how these differ from the labyrinths modular terrain system...? I missed the first df Kickstarter so figured I'd try labyrinths. I'm sure they'll both be great, but just curious if anyone could shed light on this, as well as compatibility.

To be honest it looks like the labyrinths KS is a bunch of Hirst arts molds made into some modular terrain.  As I have never messed with hirst arts (yet)  I can't say how good it is but if you're using it to game with it will work if you want some caverns I would suggest waiting until the next dwarven forge KS in about a month or so!

How does the kickstarter price match up with the price on the website now? You're looking at $150 for 3 unpainted sets which really isn't a lot or terrain, that's a small dungeon. How many sets would it take to make a "Against the Giants" map???

 

The $150 for 3 unpainted sets is the same price as the KS add-ons. IIRC, The basic sets are the "same" price as KS without the stretch goals.

 

Each tile is about 10x10, and, for the basic tiles, ended up $1 per tile if you included the stretch goals.

 

DF tiles aren't cheap in the same way that a GW army isn't cheap.

GT are much more affordable than their master maze line considering 150 gets you 3 sets of GT where as 150 would only get you 1 master maze room and passage set.  Not to mention you can do a good bit with 3 sets nothing HUGE mind you but you can at least build the room you are in.  For what you get 50 dollars per set really isn't bad to say you are able to make a 3d version of your dungeon.  I can't imagine it getting much cheaper.  I can't wait for their next caverns KS!

I'm shooting for 3, MAYBE 5 sets...and please please please don't announce it over the weekend of Feb 20th when I'm outta town...lol

 

Announcing it is not the real problem closing is when you do not want to be out of town.

 

I am worried I will have to take a business trip where I will not have Internet access at closing.

Given the information we have, Feb or March, and assuming a run time if a month, means basically that end time isn't my concern, it was intended as a light hearted comment of wanting to be one of the first to jump on supporting it

      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
