@AlonTeyCan anyone tell me how clean these are putting together?  I am not expecting GW level, but need to know where to set my expectations.  I bought a Core box of bones 4, and feel they do a good job of matching up without a lot of milliput or seam sealing.  


I guess I'm asking if anyone can compare these to another brand or assembly?  Can they be plastic cemented together or need super glue?  


I’m very interested in this question as well

They got me for the village pledge.  I was very satisfied with their previous Kickstarter (absolute ton of stretch goals, dragons look great and it actually arrived months ahead of schedule instead of the typical year late) so I knew that I was going to come back again for this one. 


I'm already invested in other tile systems so I initially intended to do a miniatures only pledge but it only worked out to be a bit more expensive to get the tiles as well.  Figure I'll do 3-4 city streets which should play reasonably well with Warlock and Dragonlock tiles and 1-2 roof sets for some Assassin's Creed style rooftop shenanigans.

Assembly seems pretty reasonable to me.  All the stretch goal stuff goes together pretty intuitively except the faerie dragon which is just....a lot... and the one dragon I put together has gaps but pretty small ones.  Pretty comparable to what GW was like back when I played and way better than Wrath of Kings, early Reaper dragons, GF9 or...(shudder)...Malifaux.  I don't see why plastic cement wouldn't work but I used super glue.

Thanks.  Given the way the rapid rewards reads, I assume I would have something in hand prior to the pledge manager closing.


Lessee... You still "purchase" Legacy (rapid rewards) shipping through the pledge manager. Then items marked Legacy shipping are sent as a first wave. Legacy items are stuff that have already been made in previous KS. You also have your items shipped first when the final wave is sent out. Legacy items are marked in the D&L3 KS, but I would only select Legacy if you have a bunch of stuff that's from previous KS, such as the Fantasy Core Set, SG's 1 and 2, Animal Companions, dragons, etc. That is, if you're new to D&L3 and are catching up with stuff outside of the village rooms, miniatures, and free SG's (not add-ons), consider Legacy shipping. Splitting the shipment, of course, gives you more time to paint everything in your first wave before the second arrives!

Any thoughts on painting the stuff and storage of the painted pieces so they don’t rub and then damage the paint job?


If you're on the cheap:

* Gray automotive primer

* Les Bursley's black wash

* Paint and drybrush with dark gray and light gray craftpaints.

* Additional painting with craft paints (eg. browns for wood).

* Water: Tamiya Clear paint


Storage: Good Earth Tea herbal boxes! Haven't had problems with my plastic terrain with herbal tea boxes! 😁


Latest update has closed doors for Woodhaven rooms! Stone doors can sorta be used for your Fantasy Core Set dungeons and Cursed Cathedral entrances:




Also, translucent colored plastic Lava Rooms! Color variants for your ice caverns, slimy caverns, and goo caverns...!

Archon had a vote on FB and this won out over the other more village-themed designs.

I am glad they added doors for the new building doorways… I really did not want to see Doorgate 2. 

Is it just me or are we seeing a medieval fantasy Thor (Royal Guard) and Batman (Mountain Knight) in the stretchgoals already? Are there other superheroes I missed? 

Does it feel to you like there are several different artists designing different miniatures with different aesthetics rather than a single aesthetic vision tying them all together?

Those lava rooms feel like they'd be a good fit for "organic" dungeons I've used in the past (as if the players were inside a creature's organs. The doors were sphincters, the walls were like intestines...). I kind of want to do something like that again, but I don't know if I foresee myself using such a dungeon often enough to actually obtain them permanently...

"Ok to be clear on this. It meant to be a surprise for you but OK, let me blow it. Every model, including SG will have sculpted bases. We have prepared a pack (sprue full of bases) that will go with townfolks (as shown on miniature renders) and the same pack will go with SG models. So there will be for sure a bit more bases to choose from when you assembly your models, plus it will give you some assembly flexibility. Some model : Troll, Giant, Dragon and 48h model will have their own sculpted base that will be on models sprue (as they will be probably separate sprues). That pack will also include that necromancer base."


So now a set of cobblestone bases as well! I might do the usual sand bases for the outside guys, and keep the cobblestone for other miniatures.

4 Kobolds are good, 8 are better ;)

But... shouldn't you have 20 Bones kobolds by now?


Anyways, the tavern and market type scatter terrain stuff alone looks like buying a second set here might be a better option than finding the right Mantic crate for it.

      Fun little piece. I attempted to paint it in the style of Costa Rican coffee wagons.  It was a real challenge, given the irregularities of the wheel surface.  I wish it had a donkey, goat or ox to pull it.  

      It will stand upright by itself on some surfaces, but I stuck a block under it to stabilize during photography.

      This could be more exciting, but it's not.  I chose this as a test piece before I tackle Dragons Don't Share II.  Nice piece, it came together in a jiffy. I'm trying to copy the local limestone, and didn't quite get there with this, but it's a starting point.

      Anthropomorphic animals are not really my cup of tea, but these look nicely done.  I imagine someone here will be interested.

      Midlam keeps chugging new sets that are hard to resist.


      I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.
