Dwarven Forge The Wildlands Kickstarter

I'm also in the gorgeous but too expensive camp.  I've still oodles of dwarven forge I don't use because it's a pain to haul around and setup.  For me, the utility : cost ratio doesn't pass muster.

I’ve experienced this feeling as well. I do like that they are doing bigger pieces since outdoor encounters are generally on a larger scale, but I know the weight of even the smaller pieces and I feel like a full encounter would require myself and another dude just to carry the tote of terrain in for use. I’ll probably end up doing one of the scatter scenarios so that I can sprinkle and mix it in with my terrain map books.

I've looked over this a few times and I still can't tell what comes in a "set" for each region.

It will come later. They tend to reveal the specifics over time.

I was thinking that I would be most tempted by the Swamp biome since it is new, but adding the my cliffs may be what I end up primarily doing this time. Mountains as a biome are super useful in both outdoor terrain as well as cave builds. Forests are tempting too, but I will likely focus on one biome to optimize my funds. 

 

This kickstarter is going crazy. Already over $2M! The highest DF Kickstarter total was $3.3M, so that seems more than possible at this point.

I guess the 2.5 was Canadian. I expect a lot of people are pledging big early. Hopefully they aren't phantom pledges to get unlocks. Looks like DF has a plan though, so they're just going to post dailies. 7pm ET if I remember correctly.

I wonder how long it will take to get a lull.

I may decide to pick and choose on this one.  There are some nice pieces and I love the woodland terrain I got from the last KS but the cost is rather extreme and each KS seems to get higher and higher  I bought into the second caverns for my 50th birthday and I am happy with it but I just don't know if I want to lay out that sort of cash for the trees.

 

Don't get me wrong, they are pretty and if they were about half what they are charging I would be very happy here, but at the cost/value point they have I just cant bring myself to spend the money.  I might pick up some scatter terrain for the alpine or swamp set to break up my existing forest but I don't think it will be much and I will probably just wait until it settles into their store.

 

Its sad that the value that was in KS1 and KS2 didn't carry into the later projects.  These are not expensive pieces to produce once the molds are made and I think they could give more of a break to their KS supporters.  The last I looked their KS prices are at the same point as their old dental plaster molds which were too expensive for me back in the day, so we are back to where we started.  nice pieces but too expensive to really get an encounter that would be fun to look at.

 

That and I have quite a bit of their material from KS1,2, city, and 4 to make me not really need new pieces.

 

However, their quality is really good and I like the pieces and I suppose if money were no limit, I would probably get more.

I went in for the “Explore the Forest” pledge as it comes with a variety of neat pieces and enough trees that I can make the terrain interesting on my battle map books and what not. I heavily considered just doing two of the $150 pledges but the $355 one comes with more varieties of trees so I opted for that. 
 

my plan is to stay away from add ons or increasing my pledge so this’ll get me out with usable stuff but not drowning in it.

Stuff's expensive, but the "low cost terrain" niche is pretty crowded, especially with WizKids' dungeon sets.

 

If DF stuck to KS1 dungeon terrain, I'm not sure if they'd be in business a few years from now, not that their increased staff doesn't mean they have to keep having high sales.

 

It's like the light side of GW and Citadel paints... :ik_oops:

I have a buddy that has the Wizkids stuff and after handling DF and the Warlock tiles I have to say that the Wizkids stuff is just a cheap mockery by comparison.

Dwarven Forge is good at feedback, leave them a comment and it might happen.  They've said the next kickstarter will likely be a return to cities/castles however.

My plan from the start has been to try and focus on vertical and waterfalls. Not sure where I will end up, but mountains are likely the most useful for me with my current collection and gameplay needs.

I just want a slew of nearly indestructible trees

      WIP is here.First 3 pages include lighthouse. Mobile site has been a pain, so I'll add comments later. This was meant to be modular for storage.

      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.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.
        
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.
