The Dragon's Lair at $120 knocks down the dragons to $20 each. However, if you just want a dragon, Reaper Bones KS dragons were $10 each. I'm finally getting a five-headed dragon, Marduk, through this KS, although I'd rather have a dragon that looks more like Tiamat. Reaper has a five-headed Bones dragon, which is larger and more expensive.

 

 

Oh I have all the Reaper dragons.. except the new Shadow dragon.. i'm not a fan of that sculpt..  I've got it on remind and I'll see how the core pack looks down the road..

I’ve backed this one at the $99 DM pledge level. 
 

A dragon of my choice, plus a core set and 3 rooms or a total of 5 rooms. I can get a couple of Dwarven mines, maybe a couple of hive rooms and then an extra one room of something else; it’ll really diversify the themes I can lay down.

Hopefully, this is an OK spot to ask this question.

 

As someone who doesn't own any tiles or terrain pieces and is therefore attracted to this KS, do the tiles from this company fit in/match with those of other companies (e.g. Dwarven Forge, TTCombat, Deathray Designs, etc.)? And do those companies' tiles fit with each other in turn?

 

I guess I'm asking: if I buy this or any other company's tiles, am I locked into only being able to use that company's tiles per set-up?

No. D&L uses a proprietary system.

 

However, in ye olden days, game tiles didn't lock together, anyway. Most can still be set up so they don't lock together. Don't expect D&L walls to fit into another company's floor tile, of course. D&L walls are thinner than Dwarven Forge, so may look too thin aesthetically. However, thin walls allows you to make walls in rooms and are easier to store. Pretty much every company makes 1" square floor tiles. Most companies make some sort of 2" x 2" floor tiles with 1" squares, but look closely how these tiles may differ, such as in the first picture in the spoiler (DF walls with the walls inside the 2x2 square, Rampart with the walls outside the 2x2 square).

 

You can use a different manufacturer for a different section of your dungeon. Frex, you could build a D&L torture room and put it right next to a Dwarven Forge game tile. They just won't lock. IMO, you only really care about locking if you have to transport a room from home, or if you want to build multi-level dungeons. 

 

Note that no single manufacturer will create all the varieties of game tiles possible. Likewise, you'll spend less money if you're willing to buy from different manufacturers when they offer lower prices. I do know that D&L looks like they'll have the same core sets in their D&L3, so you don't feel pressure to buy an entire dungeon from them in on KS. 

 

I don't have D&L tiles, but, in the spoiler, I've included an example of Rampart dungeon tiles with DF ones, as well as a 2D sewer game tile from a D&D tile set.

I'm really eyeing those dragons, but I'm not sure if they'll be gargantuan or huge. They look like they're probably on a 2" diameter base, so they could probably be placed on a 3" base overall, but I'm worried that they might still run too large and outsize my existing gargantuan-based dragons...

Campaign page mentions how tall each dragon is, though now how wide. Dragons are about 6" tall. 

 

Free dragon SG at 1M. Ridiculous number of SG's unlocked, and you can even get additional SG sets for $20.

Legacy items are still being shipped. 

 

Material is this sandable plastic. Very durable. Not soft like Mantic or boardgame plastic, not brittle like resin.

Shipping gets even more rapid: We have planned shipping of Second Edition items for August of 2021. Well, things got changed and we are planning to start shipping late February/early March 2021. Yes, 5 months earlier than planned.

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.

      and much more. You can also get character models and army units à la carte   (that's what I'm going to do). I backed his halflings and was extremely happy with what I received.
