Re: You Can't Argue with Success

Thanks Kryzsko! We certainly appreciate hearing such things. We really do try to run the best campaign possible, and it's very gratifying when it's (mostly) very well received. This is a business, yes, but it's also a labor of love; we all care very deeply about what we're doing and it makes us happ...

Re: Feedback on latest pledge greatly appreciated.

Looks like a great selection to me. Since you're getting the Banks pack and also some Trifecta pieces, you may want to pick up some of the KS5 stone pattern terrain trays; that will open up lots more potential floor space if you need it, and also allow for easy large elevated areas (since you mentio...

Re: Help a 1st time backer out

Other things I'd suggest looking at as a newcomer, especially if you plan on using mats for some of your area, and/or expect to favor skirmish-type scenarios with larger numbers of minis: 1. The Trifecta pieces (which may appear in a pack down the line) offer great versatility, including the ability...

Re: Likes and dislikes

Artists, gamers, collectors... we are all passionate about what we do. Thank you Stefan for your heartfelt remarks. It was your vision that got this all started and, so many years along, the flame is still burning. And thank you AnimeSensei for your apology. We're all friends here, or should be. We'...

Re: Gen Con Game sign up!

Really looking forward to this event! We've got a lot of great stuff planned. This'll be my first time at GenCon with Dwarven Forge and I'm looking forward to meeting any Forum members who stop by the booth! I'll probably be running a few of the games, as will Stefan (of course) and some of our othe...

Re: Caernarfon Castle

Caernarfon is an awesome castle. I've been there several times, most recently this past April. One of the nice castles in Britain IMO. Apparently the angled towers and some of the other details were based on castle designs from the Middle East that the English rulers had been exposed to during the C...

Re: Pre-KS6 Miniature Agitation Thread. I'm Not Kidding.

I'm with Kryzsko on the Bones minis. I too have a bunch (the vast majority, I'll admit) that are still unpainted, but I like having them as a pool to draw from depending on what I anticipate needing next for upcoming adventures. There are some from the initial base set that don't do much for me, tha...

Re: Stuff we saw, but never got

The giant baboon-gargoyle with the LED eyes was one of my sculpts. (Glad y'all like it!) It's part of the KS4 LED set that also includes the wizard's spire, claw braziers, and Valorian star spire. And he's in the KS4 roofs mega pack as well. Incidentally, the LED chest did get resculpted; I did a ne...

Re: Help! Need Advice About Painting My Castles

One thing to consider is how much time you want to put into painting this castle (and any future compatible pieces). To me this does look a little garish. But I think you could fix it would a couple layers of drybrush, the "standard" Df scheme of first Olive Dry Brush (fairly heavy) and then Stone E...
