Re: Warlord Games Annual Spring Cleaning and Sprue Sale

Warlords reply was to remind them the next time I place an order and they will graciously include what I ordered this time. :shock: Talk about a model for customer service.

Re: KS8 pricing

There is a lot to be said for pre-made terrain. I have close to 200 buildings from different eras and in different media (resin, ceramic, MDF, etc.), plus tons of the modular DF stuff. I like being able to plonk down ready-made buildings and mix them with the DF / CBS buildings. Some of the ready-ma...

Re: Warlord Games Annual Spring Cleaning and Sprue Sale

As a historical wargamer, I love Warlord stuff. I have probably spent more with Warlord than anyone else in recent years. But, there is always a but. Their recent changes to US shipping policy have cratered my enthusiasm. Especially for buying a few sprues. I did buy the new SPQR rules and some Germ...

Re: Did we actually get a reason for scale-gate?

One thing to point out (for forum readers new to scalegate its causes and impacts), is that if you keep your parts separate by type (resin dungeon variants, MBS, KS1, KS5, and CBS) and don't use the CBS street tiles and put it on a game mat instead, mismatches are largely not an issue at all. Its on...

Re: Did we actually get a reason for scale-gate?

If you go back and read the forums when the customers received the first sets of the CBS and discovered the problem, it was apparently news to everyone that things did not always play well together. I had received my stuff in the first wave of deliveries and made several picture laden posts explorin...

Re: KS8 Is getting concerning.

I agree, and makes me wonder if there is somebody out there who sees in a favorably light the CBS 2x2 customizable pegs-walls pieces . I think that, once they've decided they are going to manufacture those to combined with 4x4 CBS pieces, the dwarvenite MBS route would work better. If really there ...

Re: Did we actually get a reason for scale-gate?

As I recall the furor, the mismatch caught DF flatfooted too. The good news is that you can plop resin and KS1/KS5 stuff into CBS and as long as the elements you plop are small (say 4x4), the resulting gaps aren't too noticeable. If you plop a large MBS building in the middle of a CBS town, you get ...

Re: KS8 Is getting concerning.

If they did that, I guess they would also stick with CBS aesthetic vice the MBS aesthetic - for instance beams along the wall tops. I also wonder if they would make matching MBS in stone? Its fine with me as long as they also continue with the 2x2 & 2x4 CBS plan. We would really then have the be...
