The small add ons will likely get stretch goals added to them over time, but I agree they seem expensive.

I figured the stalactite pack was a low price since it is cheaper than Reaper's pack per piece, and the camp pack I figured was cheap because it is has an LED fire. 

 

Unless you are comparing the painted DF to unpainted stuff. 

 

But your mileage may vary.

The DF Stalagmites (both the KS6 pack and the older KS2 pack) are in a completely different league from the Reaper Stalagmites. DF's stalagmites are massive solid beasts - they make the Reaper stalagmites look like soda straw formations; piece count alone is inadequate to describing the value. I would highly recommend those packs to anyone who wants stalagmite terrain.

 

(Note: the KS6 stalagmite pack includes corner pieces which are mostly designed to liven up wall corners; if you're laying out stalagmites on a mat, the set has a bit less value IMHO...)

Agreed on the stalagmites. That said the Dwarvenforge minis are nothing compared to Reaper quality. :)

 

Not that impressed with the whole underdoom stuff.

Yeah, Underdoom mostly feels like the same set, in a different, incompatible paint scheme, needing transition pieces. The floating rocks are cool, but not worth that hefty price of admission.

 

Sysuul fit naturally in with KS5 pieces, unlike this. If they offer the crystal caverns in normal paint scheme, might pick up some of that, but the rest....

 

I hope the forest pieces are more of a draw.

I think the camp pack is the steal of the kickstarter.  $10 gets you 3 beds, an equipment pile, and a functioning LED campfire.  So basically you get the LED campfire for what, $5 if you're assessing costs of the purchase?  Find another LED campfire for $5 that isn't a tea light.  :P

I just got the chance to check things out more in depth. I am kind of surprised at how little I care about the Underdoom encounter. It is nice, but nothing I am going to go out of my way to purchase.

      Since I’m getting close to finishing my trike and mechs I want to try to get some.....bigger projects finished that have been languishing in the U.F.O. (Unfinished Objects) Status for some time now. Here are the ones I’ll be focusing on.
      The bridge. With a 28mm figure for comparison. 

       
      Now fo the other more ambitious pieces. 
      This is going to be a modular fortress. So far I have only two pieces based. Once again more 28mm figures for scale.





      And my most ambitious project. It will only be used on a 6x6 area most likely. 


      Multiple paths allow access to the top of the mountain. And the top can be removed allowing for battles inside of the mountain.


      Thanks for looking!

      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!
