I just want a slew of nearly indestructible trees

speaking from their last kickstarter, those trees are pretty indestructible.  However, running over them with a truck will separate the branches from the canopy sections.  (don't ask but I have empirical evidence...)  other than that though they are well built! 

 

Just very pricy

So now you have removable foliage.  Score!  :)  Did you try to reattach?

Yes, and thankfully my chosen pledge isn’t too much! And these trees will last beyond my lifetime as something I can pass down.

I wish I could afford an all-in pledge. This Kickstarter covers so many outdoor needs...

This DF KS likely has a lot of people wishing DF's pledge manager could stay open as long as Reaper's does.

Damn that is a lot for those escarpment sets

My pledge is $250 and is probably gonna stay there. It’s enough to get me the trees I want as well as some scatter and I don’t have to have the rest of it.

I think I need to see how the 2 waterfall options fit together. My head is hurting trying to picture actually using them.

I also want an idea about those escarpments. Some of them look like subtle variations on pieces from the last caverns. That would be useful for me deciding to purchase. I wouldn't mind a few more. In the end it will be way cheaper for me to get foam and make stuff

They talked about "Heart of ___" packs coming for each biome at around $1k painted. As I understand is these would focus on sculpted pieces and be almost a reverse of the Explore packs. Not sure how I feel about that yet.

Well the day 17 update has a video of the waterfall sets that basically answered my questions. UGH makes me want to buy more when I don't think I can justify it.

It shows the deluxe waterfall and regular waterfall, and combination with wildlands pieces and with caverns pieces.
I MIGHT get a swamp terrain tray. I MIGHT get stilts (though because I just have a bunch of sheets, adding levels with risers under the sheets isn't hard). I might get water terrain tray, because I only have like a 2x6 or two from the past kickstarter. Reason for getting the deluxe set would be the spillout piece mostly.
The escarpments are HUGE. It looks like 2x8x2? and then a 2x4x2 piece on the end. I wouldln't have room for those I think in my storage. I would have to look. Getting some swamp banks might be cool. Dunno about anything anymore. That seems like way too big a pledge and like 3-400$ and I cannot do that.
If I get one thing, I get the simple waterfall, because I can use it with my caverns and mines.

This KS has inspired me to begin inventorying my collection. I figured there would be a handy spreadsheet out there for this, but I was wrong. I have now finished KS1&2 for the sheet and for my inventory. I also have started to work through the sheet for KS3. So much stuff...

 

Here is a sample of what I have put together so far:

I just have mine inventoried by set, not by piece.  

 

The water mats are interesting.  I wish they had river tiles to go with the waterfall.

      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.
