Found this in the comments (and it basically sums up my situation):         Also this image with both Castle and City pieces is great: http://dwarvenforge.com/forum/download/file.php?id=15044

Got my stuff and built a castle right away to test it out.

I showed this to my wife yesterday and her comment was "well, I guess there goes the idea of buying a house this year."    Am I really that bad?   Also, does it count as an upgrade if I buy a cast

So I haven't locked in yet and i'm wondering how well these are going to work with the piece I have from the original kickstarter and the caverns.

 

You'd best check out the Dwarven Forge forum for answers.  Google "Dwarven Force Caverns & New Mountain Pieces" for some photos.   From what I can see, the "footprint"of the new pieces seems to be a wee bit larger than pieces from KS 1 And 2.   They changed to metric (not a joke).

 

Height wise they look the same but you should look at some photos yourself. 

 

Cheers.

The latest update has production pics, news of a month delay, and a teaser pic for the next Kickstarter.

 

Thanks for sharing.  I didn't back this one although of course it looks great, but KS 5 looks promising.  Presumably they are going to match the scale of KS 1 to draw back all the 3700 people they lost between KS 1 and 4.

Christmas Time Update

 

Dear Backers --

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year to everyone. We want to give you a production update.

We are well into casting and painting your sets, and we think they are looking great. Yet over the past couple months, we had to address 2 significant setbacks. The first was a complete remake of some key metal dies for the walls that just weren't precise enough as-is. The second was a small series of unanticipated glitches fitting in the magnets, adjusting some textures that didn't cast properly, and correcting some miscalculated shrinkage. Thankfully, these problems are now solved, but the result is that completing the many pieces on your castles has taken about a month more than we had projected.

Our final challenge now is to finish up everything before Chinese New Year (which starts in late January) shuts everything down for about 3 weeks. Please know that everyone is working their hardest to accomplish that. If we do complete everything before Chinese New Year, shipments will commence in late February; if not, we'll have a few more weeks' delay until the factory is up and running again.

 

We'll be posting at least two more updates in January, with more information and paint photos

First Castle Shipments

 

Dear Backers:

We want to let you all know that our first shipment of Castle sets is due at our warehouse within 7-10 days.  It includes a wide assortment -- though not all -- sets.  This is the first of 5 incoming deliveries needed for all US-based Kickstarter backers; the rest are due over the next 5-6 weeks. Shipments bound for non-US destinations will follow immediately thereafter.

Once the product is received and inventoried, we'll advise everyone. Then we will start shipping as quickly as we can get everything packed, labeled and out the door. We will also be sending tracking e-mails as shipments go out. Notifications will go to the e-mail address you used on Kickstarter.

Please keep in mind that it's very difficult for us to respond to requests to prioritize individuals' shipments. But if, for any reason you need us to hold your shipment for a vacation or other reason, or if you have a change of address, please e-mail us at [email protected]

We can't wait to get your Castles to you, and to see what you build.  Thanks so much for your ongoing patience and support!

Dwarven Forge

 

 

Looks like this one might not beat Reaper's KS3 delivery (or Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught 2), depending on what you are receiving.

Nate just posted on the Kickstarter comments that the first shipment is in-house and some packages are already being sent out.  However there are apparently (as per the quote above) 4 other deliveries en route from China, so while shipments have started they may be delayed for some backers or some backers may get more than one shipment.

      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
