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?

      I few years ago I emptied a can of spray foam for some hills. I decided to hack up one to see if I could do some scatter that was more rock  pile than grassy hill like I've previously done (insert link to foam experiments thread).
       
      About a month ago I hacked the foam hill, and last night I glued it to a dead DVD as a base and clamped it.

      This is what it looks like now.

      I'm going to let it dry a bit more then give it some goop, then a modge seal. Then drybrush, and maybe some flock.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
