I’m def going to do more of the bases as an add on for a variety of miniatures, including Bones that i rebase. 


Are you sure the bases will be available as an Add On? I don’t recall that being said, though I may have missed it ...

I don't recall bases as an add-on being mentioned yet. That said, Archon really ought to use the KS to gauge how much interest there might be in their sculpted bases as a stand-alone product. Maybe they're on the edge? If more people actually pestered them about it, they might cave (sooner).

I don't see it saying the bases as add-ons or as an option, but in the updates it mentions there's enough bases to choose from and to go around (whatever that means).  I'm hosting they're included with the core sets that are getting the townsfolk.

I think the townsfolk set already had bases. From what I can tell, the bases go with the stretch goals - there was quite a tense period on the KS comments when it was revealed that most of the stretch goal minis were coming with plain round bases even though they are clearly pictured with the nice sculpted bases. Then, suddenly, there was the rather haphazard ‘reveal’ that there would in fact be a sprue of sculpted bases to go with the stretch goal minis.

 

Honestly I think what happened was that Archon realized they screwed up by showing the stretch goal minis with sculpted bases when they were actually coming with the plain bases, and then when there was very justified negative reaction about it, they quickly changed their minds and added the sprue of bases. I’m guessing that’s why the ‘reveal’ about the sculpted bases was so awkward, and why there is no Add On info etc about them. I really think the sprue of sculpted bases was damage control for them

 

We probably will see the bases as an Add On once they realize they didn’t do it yet

There's a thread in the KS comments for sculpted bases as an add-on! :

Some quick pics of other uses for the tiles besides dungeons -- a display for your mini's and a tray holder and background when you're taking pics of multiple groups of miniatures... 😄

Can somebody post some rooms built with this system beside some other tile systems?  I'd like to see how smoothly they transition into Warlock and Dragonlock tiles.

I've talked to both Derek and Archon, about this. As they don't yet know how many bases are going to be on the sprue(s), the can't give a price yet. But they will be available in the Pledge Manager as an Add-on.

That makes sense, and I’ll def be adding a few sets of them in the PM. 

 

I don’t know what to do about ordering doors.

Yeah, the utility of the new designs really suffers from apparently not getting functional doors. I'll have to ask if the old functional doors will fit any of the new doorways.

 

EDIT: Old functional doors will not fit new doorways. Not having different doorway shapes for every damn style would be too customer friendly, I guess.

I don’t have any of the previous D&L sets, so I can’t show pictures of the exact line-up between them, but a D&L set-up that is 10 squares long will be 300mm, which is basically 12”.

 

I have Ettinstone tiles, but also have and use Warlock doors with them. I took this photo for a discussion on another forum. Maybe it helps you visualize a bit?

      The toddler insisted on me removing the plastic piece from the puzzle game Blokus(tetris meets scrabble kinda) because it looked like game pieces left in the box. Nope, just a fancy display that made it hard to store/remove the game.
      I added some craft sticks to hint at my idea for a water park...  No timeline

Both books have nearly 1,000 jungle-themed pieces in them, which allow DMs to build custom interactive maps in a brand new setting. As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures. We'll also be unveiling new and exciting products like our jungle DM screen and our Crocodile Jasper D20."

      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
