Dwarven Forge KS5 Back to the dungeon


Recommended Posts

You know, Dwarven Forge is one of those things that I have always looked at and drooled over, then looked at the price for even a really small set and moved on.  I'll obviously take a look at the KS, but I have a feeling that unfortunately, I will likely just end up saving my money for Bones IV.  I unfortunately just don't get enough games in to really justify the cost of DF, as awesome as it looks and as awesome as it would be to set up and run a group through.

It has transformed how I play Myth and Zombicide.

Aye, don't get me wrong.  I'd absolutely love to have a nice collection of DF, it's just that the cost has always held me back, especially since I just don't get to play enough to justify it.  As I said though, I'll be checking it out and if there is a deal good enough in therre I just may pick some up because it would be awesome to drop on my players.  :)

There is typically an economy of scale with this kind of thing. It can save quite a bit to go in on an order with a friend or friends.

I have donated to all 4 kickstarters, but typically have only done the base pledge for each. The castles were as expensive as a decent set of their original stuff. 

 

I lug several tubs of them to a game store, drop them on the mat and set up rooms/dungeons on the fly.  More would require me to have a more permanent place to set up- so I'm happy with what I have. 

 

I still drool over bigger cities and streets. I should have added the street and sewers. Not sure about how often I'd need big castle walls, so I only bought a tower and hut in 4.

 

Hopefully 5 will be basic pieces at low prices to round out my sets.

I didn't buy the streets during KS 3, and ended up buying them afterward. Everyone has their own personal calculus for this kind of thing... there are so many good inexpensive options, including re-using old cereal boxes and currogated cardboard and getting paints from walmart, that I can't really blame people who chose not to spend their money this way. I'm definitely addicted to this stuff, and I don't even get to bring it to the table that often, since we often play relative short sessions at our friend's house. Hell, we often don't even play with minis. But that doesn't stop me from dumping more than I should into every reaper KS, either. It all makes for fantastic dioramas, though. :-)

A.C. in the car went out yesterday. My budget was just knocked down a couple of notches. :(

 

Sorry to hear that!  I have to be more conservative this time around too. I just had a bunch of dental work done, and we're having our roof reshingled. I can still go in for some nice stuff, but it's going to be tough keeping myself from going overboard.

 No kidding. Next week's forecast has us hitting 120F.

 

Wow.  I mean, I guess the good news is that it isn't 120C? 

 

I'm going to try to paint this afternoon so that hopefully I'll have about 50% of my castle painted before the new KS starts. I'll call that a win.

      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.
