Do we have any idea if the pricing will be similar to last time?  I love the 5 sets plus add ons I got.  Most of them are painted and we do play RPGs at least once a week.  The trouble is that we have only used them once. 

 

They are a great product but it takes a lot of time to set it up before the game.  Maybe our DMs are too lazy :devil:

I posted this in the other thread right before it got moved over here.

 

I coulda SWORN that a while back, Stefan said something along the lines of a 10-15% increase on these, but, as Crimson stated, it's really all hearsay until tomorrow morning.

 One option might be to use permanently mounted, pre-made rooms in common sizes like:

- two 20x30' rooms and a 40'x30' room (with two open sides instead of walls, to allow for combining):

- a 10' wide hallway

- an intersection

etc.

 

Maybe use hot glue and corrugated plastic (free from those real-estate ad signs that litter street corners)

I think organization will be the key to quickly assembling your dungeon layouts.

 

Having tiles mapped out, counted out per area, and then subdivided into those areas prior to laying out your rooms (whether as your party explores it, or you reveal it after it's all been built) will help speed things up. Color coding you maps may also help to distinguish which tiles go where. Also, if there's dead space between encounters/points of interest, you may not always want to show everything.

 

I'd never want to permanently glue any of my tiles into a preset shape, since it would defeat the purpose they were designed for: maximum flexibility. However, you might try blu-tac on the undersides, and use a piece of plastic or cardboard to move stuff around easily if it's re-used a lot. Be warned, though, that blue-tac on the painted parts of the tiles runs the risk of pulling the paint off with it if left in place for too long.

 Right: those are excellent tips to speed things up during the game, but the OP's was indicating "it takes a lot of time to set it up before the game", which this could exacerbate.

If your DM is not into preset up, the best way to get them used IMHO is to have them out and players can do a quick set up when the DM says what size the room is.  This gets them used and allows the players to have something to do while DM gets out the monster minis.

 

Just an idea.

Dangnabbit, right when I have to pick my daughter up at school!  Stupid half day!

 Since Dwarven Forge doesn't do Early Birds, isn't technically better for pledgers to pledge later (to encourage earlier stretch goals)?

 

 

 

I am hoping everyone who plans to get 5 or 10 or more sets pledges on the first day so we can really get moved to the $1,000,000 mark

 

If 3334 people pledge $300 we get to a million.

 

I know I am thinking really big, I know

I don't think you're thinking too big at all I know most of the people on the DF site have talked about pledging way more than that so it isn't unforeseeable.  I know I myself plan to pledge twice that.

Something to keep in mind - it's not unprecedented. Bones II did $948,591 in one day.

 

I'm in for at least 3 painted sets, and 1 of each add-on, with a little wiggle room, but I have already budgeted $450 for it, so I'm already ahead of your "curve."

 

Besides 20 bucks here, and 50 bucks there, I have a feeling this will be my most expensive Kickstarter of the year.

 

I'm trying to save for the June resin restock too (where I can see myself spending another $650, easily.)

 

With that being said, I love the way they look, and I consider myself a really hardcore gamer, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how someone would use 10+ sets all at once.

 

Some of you people are crazy! :)

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      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
