I added another set of stretch goals for a second dragon

The Ghost dragon is not included in the stretch goals! You get one if you are in an eligible pledge, but it it's own add-on so you can add more that way ;)

Does their pledge manager allow adding funds? I'm really uncertain about some of the add-ons, trying to figure if I even have a use for them.


It is my understanding that they are using Backerkit, so yes.

I really don't need two giants or ghost dragons...

So? If you only vought miniatures you *truly* need, you'd have stopped visiting this here forum years ago. ::P:

What game tiles do you already have? What sort of builds are you interested in? (Dungeon, village, castle)

I definitely have no idea which rooms to get. I saw someone else indicate you can exchange two rooms for a dungeon or sewer set, but I don't see that on the KS. Not sure if I'd do that or rooms anyway, but still unclear.


Personally, I don’t really want the sets for walled dungeons for tabletop play (too many blocked sight lines), though they may certainly get used that way in a pinch. 
 

I’m primarily getting multiple Royal Castle and Stone Tower sets to serve as stand-alone buildings for outdoor skirmishes. 
 

As for the bolded bit, it’s right in the pledge tier descriptions on the campaign page.

Argh.  They're really making me question how to handle my pledge in the final hours.  There's so many stretch goals...maybe it's worth doing an extra pack? 

 

And a lot of those stretch goals go with the sewers...maybe I should do the sewers instead of two extra rooms.  After all they did look good painted up. 

 

And y'know if I'm going to do the sewers I really should get two sets of them, one just isn't enough for a proper setup.

I must have misunderstood a prior poster then. I understood I could trade in a Core set for 2 rooms. I thought someone had indicated I could trade in 2 rooms and get another Core set, and that's the thing I wasn't seeing in the KS. I'm guessing I misunderstood.

So the final big update… swing… and a miss! In my opinion anyway. I was hoping for something a bit more…. “town building” focused. The market stall is now one per backer? And the add on market stall is the same as the stretchgoal one? They did not add the magic stall as the add on? Disappointing. The stretchgoals in D&L2 convinced us to do two pledges but this time just one for us. 

Derek the volunteer in the comments has been incredibly motivating but his activity highlights the lack of involvement from others. Maybe they are busy on other platforms like discord and Facebook? Considering all the enthusiasm shown before the campaign from my perspective it is feeling a bit anti-climatic to me. 

The big jump from the barbarian to the Phoenix feels out of step with their other stretchgoal intervals. 

I also would like the “furious” Phoenix to win but to be honest I think my feeling of anticlimactic disappointment has spoiled any real enthusiasm I have for whatever design wins. 

There are some brilliant minis on offer in this KS but I can not help but feel like a great opportunity for something more has been missed.

At the very least they should have made a two piece wide doorway with portcullis given the portcullis jokes on the Facebook live video Q&A sessions in the run up to the campaign.

And there should have been a castle pledge with enough pieces to make a D&L version of the old Citadel GW Castle.

      Overview
       
      I recently finished my first piece of scatter terrain! I used it as a test for a bunch of techniques I'd been learning from The Terrain Tutor YouTube channel. I used two boulders that I had cast using the Woodland Scenic rock molds (I think one was from mold C1233 and the other from C1230, but I could be mistaken) and Durham's Water Putty. I had painted them up previously for practice, and noticed that together they made a pretty nice split boulder. I had an extra 3' x 3' foam core square from my ongoing dungeon tile project, and decided to make some scatter terrain as a diversion from all the Bones V waiting to be painted.
       

      A picture of the finished piece with a Reaper goblin mini (77024) for scale.
       
      Process - Sculpting
       
      I started by peeling off one side of the foam core paper, and used a hobby knife to create a shallow slope around the center. Then, I used Liquitex Modeling Paste to create a big glob in the middle for the boulders to sit in, fill in all the cracks, and smooth out the transition from stone to foam. I deliberately let some of the paste squeeze up into the crack between the two rocks to create the impression of a smooth arc of soil that had built up over time. The paste can be mixed with paints, but due to the way I wanted to apply texture later on I decided against it. Once the paste had dried, I moved on to applying texture and painting the ground.
       

      You can see that initial soil arc here; I sculpted it a bit further to achieve a more realistic look.
       

      More sculpting and slathering to mask the edges of the rock and create the illusion that it's buried in soil.
       
       
      Process - Ground Texture and Painting
       
      The next step was to add texture and paint to the ground. I first applied a layer of Burnt Umber acrylic that had been mixed with a bit of PVA (white glue; the Elmer's stuff. I got a two pack at Dollar Tree that works fine. Don't get the school variety as it's extremely watered down and doesn't stick nearly as well). Then I drizzled on a "soil" mix I had made from: mostly fine sand, some coffee grounds, and a little cat litter. Ideally, the paint/PVA mixture should be laid on thick enough to absorb all this grit and cement it in place once it dries. I didn't apply enough of it, so as an additional measure I spritzed the whole thing with a 6:1 water/PVA mixture. This worked in sealing everything, but made the piece extremely damp and necessitated leaving it to dry overnight.
       
      After everything was dry, I put on a layer of Raw Umber to darken the soil, unify the grit, and cover up any exposed bits of white modeling paste. Once that was finished, I did a quick dry brush pass with a lightened Raw Umber to bring out the texture of the soil. With that, the ground was finished!
       
      I must admit, at this point I had what looked like a great riverbed and boulder on my hands and was tempted to do a deep pour water effect! But I quickly reigned myself in since that was not the goal of this project. Soon though, soon...
       

      The ground texture anchored in the paint. Bits of this came off at various points during the process,
      but the PVA did its job quite well, considering.
       

      The Raw Umber did a good job of tying everything together, and let bits of the Burnt umber through
      for some lighter patches.
       
       
      Process - Boulder Paint Touch-ups
       
      As much I wanted to get to the main event (flocking!), I needed to touch up the lower edge of the boulder; there was no way I could hide all of it. So I did a quick and dirty touch up with the same wet technique I used to paint them initially: a base coat of grey, and once that's dry, watered down browns, greens, and blacks to create color variations, moss, and dirt. Finally a quick homemade black wash added the final touch. I also used the black wash to mark out some rivulets that would have carved their way out from the crack and create a bit more variety in the soil. Then finally, I could move on to the most anticipated bit: the flocking!
       

      The initial stripe of grey paint across the bottom of the boulder. I wasn't too meticulous; the water
      from the next layers smoothed out the transitions between the existing paint job and the new one.
       

      An example of some of the blotches and colors I was applying. Unfortunately I don't have a picture
      that includes the black wash.
       
       
      Process - Flocking and Final Touches
       
      The flocking itself was relatively simple. I used three shades of Woodland Scenics Fine Turf:
       
      Burnt Grass - T44 (highlight) Green Grass - T45 (base) Weeds - T46 (shade)  
      First, I applied PVA glue that had been slightly watered down, just enough so it's almost a liquid but not quite. Then, I sprinkled the highlight into the more open areas where the grass would be drier, the shade into wetter and more covered spots, so near the rock and crack, and then covered everything with a healthy dose of the base. I didn't use a lot of the highlight because I was worried I'd overdo it, but I could have used more as the base really takes over if you let it. I tapped off the excess flocking that hadn't been absorbed by the PVA before using a tiny bit of Coarse Turf (Medium Green - T64) to create a little bush in one side of the crack, and one out in the open. I used a toothpick to drop a bit of regular PVA where I wanted the bush to go, and then just stuck it in place. After about an hour elapsed, I sealed the whole thing by spraying it with the 6:1 water/PVA mixture and leaving it to dry overnight.
       
      The final touch was to use black paint to seal the white edges of the foam core.  I'm very pleased with the end result, and it's solid as a rock. This will certainly be able to stand up to some abuse without losing any flocking or texture. Thanks for reading this far!
       

      Two more glamor shots of the finished piece; this is the first one. You can just spot the bush peeking out
      of the crack in the middle, and some cat litter "stones" in the field.
       

      Here's the other side, with a bush on the left and a "wetter" appearance around the crack. Some of the
      lighter Burnt Umber is also peeking through at the front left edge.
