Alright you got me. Now convince me of the $40 pledge vs the $110. Lol

The reason I’m doing the $110 level is because for each of the three sets that you’d choose, there are associated free add-ons for each one; the everyone gets them add-ons notwithstanding.

Which sets are you thinking (and how heavy did you go on DF trees)? Also, do you have other trees from Monster Factory (or elsewhere)? Just trying to get an idea what others are thinking.

I did like $450 on the DF stuff and this will give me some nice snow and ice terrain to fill out my choices for at the gaming table.

I'm splitting a $1k pledge level with someone so we can both get the painted stretch goals.

Wow. That is lots of trees.

I'm thinking of the felled trees with the beaver. I dont have any of those and could be a fun path through a forest  setup.

It's 15 sets each, which can be trees or other things.  It gives a lot of flexibility between winter, green, or blighted versions, and I can get compliments to my trees from their first KS as well.  It just was a well-rounded option and the painted stretch goals pushed us over the top to combine our pledges.

I ended up backing this at the $180 level (plus a bit more, for planned add-on purchases).

 

They also had a nice bundle going on in their retail site during the KS. A three-pack of terrain sets from their first KS (1 stony hills, one broken ground, 1 tree set [green foliage]) for $100 (normal retail $40 per set), plus they had free US shipping at $100 spent. The bundle is no longer listed in the site, but at last check (yesterday) the free shipping deal was still up. Getting it was a bit of an impulse purchase, but whatever, it’s here now. 
 

I plan to get frosted ice hills and broken ground ice boulders from this new KS, since I can’t make transparent ice hills from XPS foam. Also one or two sets of green (non-snowy) pine trees. 
 

I was planning to get a full set of the fallen pines (note the free one with every shipment is half as many pieces, and generally unpainted), so I could have lots of fallen tree terrain, but someone on another message board reminded me there is a whole world of free sticks outside... Some care in choosing the right type of stick should keep it from shedding on my game table, etc. Could also coat them in Mod Podge. 
 

So, yeah, mostly going for stuff I couldn’t replicate well on my own (transparent terrain, and trees that don’t shed flock all over my table).

Next thing we know, you'll tell me rocks are free too.  ;)  

 

My issue with just normal sticks is the immersion factor.  If the rest of my terrain were also real materials based, then it would work, but mixing the real sticks in with fake trees just makes the stick look like well, a stick, in stead of a fallen tree.  Some may not care, but it's an issue for me.  If I wanted to go cheap, I'd just 3D print a fallen tree.  But I'm not a fan of painting if I can help it.

Real rocks are more likely to scratch my vinyl game mat, and mar my wooden floor when one of my players inevitably drops one. And rocks the size of the large hill are too heavy for ease of use, and aren’t flat on the bottom. 
 

::P:

 

I haven’t fully made my mind up yet, but I am leaning toward more standing trees.

Got a pledge manager invite.

Will see what options exist when I can check it out. Looking at fallen trees maybe some tree sets. If old canopies can be had would consider a set.Don't know about ice hills.

well If I get unpainted  fallen trees, regular trees, and pine trees that's 80$+26 shipping. Gives me a reasonable plastic forest. A mat doesn't add much in shipping, I guess because I'm not getting a ton. So I'll have to think about whether I want the ice mat for Frostgrave. I wanted seals and they're more than half the cost if I get them separately.

Filled out the PM yesterday and am getting exactly what I want. Between this and the DF Wildlands trees, along with my map book and large table battle mat I’m set.

      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.

      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.
