Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

Recommended Posts

I am going to have to make some really hard decisions this time around. I am hoping I can convince myself to stick to painted for the first time. The time saving should be worth it.

 

It will mean that I won't be able to get everything I want. I probably won't even be able to get everything that I "need," if that makes sense.

We've gone factory painted for every KS and never had regrets. The time savings and being able to use in games right out of the box is fantastic. Especially seeing how quickly my unpainted mini queue grows....

 

I will say, the last two KS have occasionally had unsealed pieces, though, where a black wash would come off on anything it touched. Using a spray sealer fixed the ks4 ones.

 

In ks5  the problem has been less common still, only the smaller support pillars had it from first two shipments we got from 5.

It is going to come down to where my finances fall in the PM. I am strapped for cash right now. Low pledge now for bigger pledge later.

My wife saw the forest over my shoulder and told me to "get what I wanted and not worry about cost".  For now I made sure I had access to the pledge manager so I get goodies.  Maybe I can decide some if what I want before the ks ends ::D:

 

I have a  awesome life partner and friend!

We were in the live audience for the Gen Con stream where they revealed the Dreadhollow. My wife said, "I don't care what you get, just get me those trees."  (Or at least that's what it sounded like to me.) 

 

For KS5, I (for the first time) switch to painted at the last minute. I got less, but I don't regret it ... too much. This year I'm having a hard time going with painted. First, I don't know that the trees/forests will come out as nice factory painted -- it's a more complicated job. Second, I'm just balking at the added cost. We'll see, I guess. Two days to go.

I like quite a bit of this a lot. I don't think I like it as much as Dwarven Forge, though.

 

I've been waffling for the last couple of weeks, but I'm not in. I think everyone who does buy in will get really nice stuff, though.

I am right with you Doug except I broke and pledged....then the next day my pledge from the previous KS arrived and my wife asked me why I keep buying this stuff.....

My wife hasn't asked me that. First, I think, because she sees how insanely happy it makes me; and second, because she immediately goes and buys another houseful of yarn every time I get a delivery.

When I see the joy my 5 yo and his friend got out of building dungeons this weekend, I am not worried about the question and only wish I would have paid for the factory painting during the first KS. It is so cool the have something that lets them do freeform constructuon and can litterally be thrown in the storage box without me worrying about breaking the expensive terrain.

 

I just box up the smaller pieces and keep them segregated so the 9 month old doesn't try to swallow them.

      I got this fake bonsai at a dollar store for a couple of dollars. Pulled it out of the small vase with rock and styrofoam, trimmed the trunk that was below "ground" and then stuck it on a yogurt lid.
      I put paper towel down for some texture and modgepodged it with brown and various greens. I still intend to flock it a bit. I may also stick it on a cd (hence the waiting to flock). But for now it's playable. I never took process pics. Oops. Maybe more to come.
      MSP bottle for rough scale (about 3"high by 6" span).

      Here I will paint the inhabitants of the world beneath us.
      You will find Drow, Myconids, Beholders and all sorts of cave dwelling creatures here.
      I might also try my hand at some terrain or buildings.
       
      Some stuff that awaits painting:

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      About this project
      This is my first set of TerraScapes.  I present to you a natural Caves & Grottos core set. With the full range of double sided modular tiles, you can quickly create ultra-realistic cavern scenarios for any of your spelunking adventures! If you've ever found yourself in a cave, you know how under represented they are in the games that we love to play. There is nothing linear about spelunking and caverns aren't flat! Caves are twisted sections of open air encased by cool moist rocky walls.  That's why I've coined this terrain as a Nonlinear Modular Terrain System, and it's a new way of dressing your Tabletop with functional, dynamic terrain for all your Tabletop RPG's!
      TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos strives to simulate natural terrain for optimal immersion and strategic playability. To maximize the possibilities every tile is double sided! This means that with every tile you get twice the possible play space! Both tops and bottoms of each tile can be used in your layouts!  Each tile is designed to work like a table where instead of legs, you have stalactites and large rocks. It allows you to stack them up however you want! This gives your layout real depth and introduces a whole new dimension for increased strategical encounters. Whether it's for your big boss battle, wargame or random encounter, everything you'll need for an endless tactical cavern layout comes with our set of Caves & Grottos!
      This video shows how to build an endless array of immersive caverns for your tabletop!
      What's in the Full Set?  I have a ton of tiles prototyped and ready for this campaign.  If everything is unlocked we will have 9 Core double-sided tiles, 3 exclusive large  double-sided KS tiles, 2 Rock Packs which include a total of 8 double-sided rocks and rock/well combinations, 2 sets of Stalactite risers containing a total of 4 risers, 3 double-sided flowstone/pit centerpieces and 4 packs of double-sided wall sections containing 8 wall sections.  This is everything you'll need to bring to life any dynamic cavern scenario that you could possibly dream up!  You can purchase any of these Packs of tiles or accessories as Add-ons as they are unlocked during this campaign by managing your pledge amount and adding their cost(s).  If you are bad with arithmetic, just send me a message and I'll give you hand personally!
      I know, I know...  I'm getting ahead of myself here!  When the campaign launches we'll only have the three tiles from Core Pack:A, and the exclusive KS:1 tiles available.  Whenever we unlock another Core Pack, I will also unlock another exclusive KS tile for you to snatch up!  I am fairly confident that we are going to smash through almost every stretch goal I have planned.
      Core Pack:A Random Layout with KS Tile:1  With the exception of the Stalac-Packs, note that every terrain piece in TerraScapes is double-sided. The following graphics depict both the tops and bottoms of every piece and are not separate pieces offered with the packs.  The sizes listed are in terms of tile height.  So a Size 2 piece is two tiles high.  A Size 3 piece is 3 tiles high.  
      Please Manage your Pledge if you would like to add-on any pieces.  A survey will be sent after the Kickstarter has concluded for you to list which add-ons and options (like paint schemes) you would like.  All shipping charges will be handled by a Third Party Pledge Manager after the Kickstarter as well.  You will have until December 1st, 2017 to update your Pledge using this Pledge Manager
      3 Core Pack:A tiles and the first Exclusive KS Tile:1 As each set of new tiles and accessories are unlocked we will journey deeper into what TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos has to offer any story.  During this campaign, your very pledges will move a group of adventurers through the deep, exploring the sets that you unlock.  Our heroes fate will depend upon your support!  When the campaign ends, our adventurers will either perish or succeed in escaping these deep Caves & Grottos! 
      Core Pack:A, KS Tile:1 and Rocks & Wells Pack:A  
      Rock & Wells Pack:A contains four Size 1 Risers  
      Stalac-Pack:A contains two Size 2 Risers  
       
      Core Pack:B Random Layout with KS Tile:2
