Looks interesting. Might look even more interesting with a better campaign presentation, like shots of the actual unpainted pieces.

Ow, my eyes hurt.

 

C's first rule of new technology: The first use of a new technology will be to mimic an existing one.

C's first mistake of new technology: The first mistake of a new technology will be to mimic an existing one.

 

My first reaction was that they should have made these tiles more compatible with Dwarven Forge and Hirst Arts tiles. Effectively, they're asking you to use a different system than other 3D tile companies.. However, all they're supplying are walls and stuff that's already made by these other companies.

 

What they should do is make DF/HA-compatible sections that *cannot* be made with non-magnetic parts. Frex, they could offer individual wall sections that you could affix torches, levers, etc. to. Or a magnetic snap-together village set, such a tavern bar with food and drink pieces that stick to it. Maybe a lake terrain piece where the lake parts won't slide off the ground sections. Basically, terrain stuff we don't already have.

So, it's now the subject of a copyright dispute. Interesting. Not much I can find on it other than an Indiegogo that went nowhere in early 2014, and that seems to have been the same people.

Interesting. After all, they were on Indigogo more than a year ago and I think they were selling the Dungeon package (which has now been "improved" and two more packages added to choose from) ... I don't know ... is it too close to Dwarven Forge pieces?

 

Edit: no, you can actually read what the problem is:

I dunno. If these guys tried to steal another artists sculpts during their Indigogo campaign I won't be sending them money for this. The project looks half baked anyway. Like a mishmash of existing game components forced together with magnets to make an odd, unappealing, collage. I'll wait for Stones Dungeon Tiles to ship.

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.

      Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100.
       
      There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder.
