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.

      Story
      In the depths of Agaldurs Keep, where the deep roots of the ancient Dwarven king's mines break into the natural homeland of the Gnomes, the magicks of the Darkewood begin to take hold. In the years after the Dwarves had left these lands the Gnomes took up residence in the lower sections of the Keep finding it infinitely more comfortable than their underground holes. Moving here exposed the Gnomes to new creatures, new tools and of course the magick that weaves through the Darkewood. Over time Gnomish society changed and began revolving around frogs and fairies instead of just dirt.
          More Gnomes? is this just an excuse for Bad puns?
      No of course not,  but when opportunity knocks it would be rude not to open the door eh?  We originally launched the 'Gnome More MR. Nice Guys' miniatures in 2018 and had always hoped to explore deeper into the history of these strange creatures. Where did they come from, What are they wearing and Why do they get so angry?  With your help in funding this project not only will we be able to answer some of these burning questions but we will also be able to bring a whole heap of brand new Northumbrian Tin Minis into production for general release next year. 
      We spent a fair amount of time considering how these gnomes fit into the world along with the rest of the Nightfolk and the Denizens of the Wood and so to help you bring a little bit more of that world to life they also come equipped with a small free digital adventure. Rumor has it that our author Ken became so engaged with the characters and lore that he built a whole campaign around it, which he may or may not have committed to paper - we shall have to see!
      We have 8 Gnomes and 5 Toads as well as an epic Toad mounted Deathstealer, Several stretch goals which include Additional free Minis!
        What do you get out of this? Well, you can get all of those fantastic miniatures we just mentioned and some addons with a fantastic discount on the usual retail price and perhaps bag yourself some free stretch goals on top!  You also get to lend us a hand in shaping these characters and the lore that surrounds them.

      I assume that everyone is already aware that Midlam is running a new KS, but...

      Story
      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
       
       
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.
