Dwarven Forge KS4

Gahhhhh...
... Analysis Paralysis strikes! So many cool things! So few dollars (and somewhat less incentive to spend the ones I have on fantasy stuff, since I'm not actually running a fantasy game right now).

Necromancer-themed packs just went up. These and the runic packs are both really nice.

Holy options batman! If I counted correctly, there are over 50 different addon sets. Too much...

 

I can't afford to get one of everything this go around. Honestly thinking of just getting one watchtower and whatever addons I think I can incorporate into the older sets.

 

Bit concerned that again there are only a few days left and it's hard to fathom what some of these pieces are without in-use pictures. How would one use a tall stone corner post? (is it the height of two walls plus a floor?) How could the riser be used? What about those offset walls that appear to have the corner post built in?

A Tall Stone Corner Post is a double-high post. It is the height of two walls plus a floor in the middle. The risers are for making a double height wall without a floor (risers are same thickness as a floor).

 

The offset walls are meant for creating doorways to lead inside of the castle walls (the normal door placement is not lined up correctly). They talked about this stuff deep within one of the live video streams. It would be amazing if you could click on an add on/pledge level and be redirected to images of builds using that stuff, with a central location for mixing it together in other places. The options this time are insanely daunting.

 

I have two questions for people:

1: What are you thinking of getting? (please explain why - maybe with an idea of what you already own)

2: If you had a cool $1000 to pledge total (could be broken up before/after pledge manager, or all in initial pledge, but total is as close to $1000 as possible), what would you get? Why?

 

 

Edit: I just went through and used their pledge calculator. It says that I should pledge at $1761. I wish that I could afford that...

 

I am going to have to make some hard decisions soon...

Once upon a time I happily lived in the land of I do not need a castle where mountains, bridges and a single watchtower lived and my wallet did not try to hide while crying.

Why mountains?  The adventurers in my game have a lot of out door adventures so outdoor terrain is really needed, bridges would be good also and why not get a single watch tower for and evil keep, or in town battle or heck even a huge cavern battle with a Drow or Duergar keep.

 

But now due mostly to one video where Nate showed the pieces as a large interior build with spiral stair cases and ledges and such I am interested in a Grand Citadel.

 

I have always done my DF in unpainted so that lowers the cost a little but at the moment my small dream list is your cool $1,000 x2.

 

I could dream really big but I think getting a loan is out of the question so I will have to rethink my ideas.

Is there an image somewhere showing if the round roofs work on okay square towers?

 

Edit: Found this pic (it gets more epic the more you look at it)

There are add-ons I do not plan to get and many I could get next year from retail but I am glad they are coming out with things for differant tastes now.

 

This is a really nice modular castle system that can be added to for years to come.

 

And there are items in this KS for folks that do not plan to get any kind of castle stuff.

 

 

Stefan did warn before the KS that to get every thing would be around $5000.

The new update looks very promising. They have previews of "complete" build pledge levels including a wizards hut at $58 and a "count's castle" at $585. These are attractive, all-inclusive pledges and they seem to offer discounts over piecemeal building as well. They might do the job of turning some heads for people who "wanted to want to" back. More to come tomorrow. Also another beautiful video by Nate. I'm definitely going to have to re-analyze my pledge

I had pretty much decided to sit this one out after backing the first three, but that Count's Castle is really tempting...

That Count's Castle will likely be my pledge to add on to. 

 

New Tentative Pledge Starting Point ($934):

  • Count's Castle - $585
  • Motorized Drawbridge - $69
  • Erinthor Mountains - $280

 

Will likely try and scrounge up enough to get some corners, most of the City Builder add ons, and some other stuff. I know that some things that have been teased will be things I want. There will probably even be stuff that hasn't been teased that I want.

I think they realized early on from backer comments that they needed to have pledge levels like this, but for various reasons they didn't get it put together until now.  I'm glad to see it, because I'm pretty sure there will be a number of folks who have sentiments similar to yours. It helps that this integrates pretty well with both the CBS and older stuff.

      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
