I only ordered unpainted addons, because I had the original dungeon set. So I'm pretty sure it's going to get delivered while I'm on vacation. How well do you think it'll handle the 90 degree heat?

 

You might need to boil some of the thinner pieces if the warp, but they should all be fine. This stuff is near indestructible.

My stuff is supposed to arrive Monday. Like @gmpathfinder, it's pretty much just pieces to add to the absurd quantity of other DF stuff (including seven(?) boxes of resin pieces; I've been buying their stuff for a long time) I already own.

 

I'm not much attracted to their encounter/room-style packs; too specific. I like much more generic tiles. Between the late arrival of this set, the high prices of the new things, and the encounter focus, I'm probably sitting out DF6.

I was sent a pre-shipment email a while back, but never a shipping email with tracking info. Think I should be worried?

This showed up unnannounced today. I should ask questions like this more often...

I got almost all the rest of my order last week -- same day as my Secret Weapon stuff. Secret Weapon hadn't given me any notice, but DF gave me two tracking numbers from UPS. So when Fedex showed up with a single box, I was very confused! I still need my Khri add-ons and my elevation box. My buddy got his elevation box, so I don't know what the difference is.

Hmmm... *ahum, cough cough* I do wonder where my stuff is... *cough* Maybe I should start w-o-r-r-y-i-n-g?

 

*expects stuff tomorrow* :)

Still waiting on my notice. :(  Unfortunately I was moving right about the time that they started shipping so I changed my order to ship all at once so I didn't have to deal with trying to figure out which address to ship to, etc. At least with the latest update it sounds as though I should get a shipping notice soon. :)

Got my stuff other than the bag yesterday. Looks good.

 

And since it got to me before the end of KS6, I might take another look at that as well.

 

KS6 is turning out to be quite the KS. A lot of amazing stuff in it, and the way it's broken down into adventure packs, you can get some highlight pieces without having to spend $1000. That's really nice. For someone whose looking to fill an entire table with terrain, this will be more expensive than KS2  by a pretty wide margin (but the new pieces are nicer and more dynamic than the earlier ones).  But for someone who wants to pick and choose, I think they've done a fantastic job this time breaking things down so people can just get what they want without paying for what they don't want.   Definitely worth a look in the final hours, especially now that the packs are filled in with stretch goals. 

 

 

One thing they've done this time, which I absolutely love, is the Deadliest Dungeon Designs conference videos. They really highlight the encounters in a fun way.  The actual encounter breakdown videos are great, too. Since DoD, they've done a much better job showing people what they're really getting.

I just took a look and there's a bunch of stuff I'd like to have, just not at the price (including time) that DF is asking. Fair enough and no hard feelings.

 

They get to set the price that they want to set; I get to pay what I want to pay ... or not.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.
