Re:Stretch Goals Speculation

<t>And here's a bizarre add-on idea: Dwarvenite *miniatures bases*<br/> <br/> I don't think it's surprising to expect your customers want to match their bases to the terrain the miniatures will be in. So I requested Stefan to make a video of how to paint miniatures bases to match the Dwarvenite game...

Re:Is a Kickstarter Right for DF?

<t>Plastic injections molds cost $10K each. That's a lot of money for a small company like DF to recuperate -- it would be terrible if even ONE such mold fails to pay for itself. Better a pledge from a loyal customer, than a loan from a bank!<br/> <br/> And if a KS for a new DF line fails, so what? ...

Re:KICKSTARTER STRETCH GOAL REWARDS

<t>+1 for simple. As someone who collected cardboard dungeon tiles, I can tell you that the more different tiles you have, the more difficult it is to organize them all.<br/> <br/> Also, as someone who's new to DF, I'll mention the concern many n00bs have: How many sets? I've read forum posts that t...

Re:Stretch Goals Speculation

<r>Hope this doesn't get buried, but, if you look at the Reaper comments, some of those who pledged with add-ons are unhappy that those who didn't will receive their shipment first (because they're the simplest to fulfill).<br/> <br/> As much as I like the sexy stuff, I can show you boxes full of ca...

Re:Should I purchase some of the Kickstarter sets?

<t>You can also support DF by posting in forums you're already part of, attending boardgame Meetups and using DF tiles in dungeon boardgames, posting reviews of DF products and mentioning the KS, showing off DF sets at your FLGS, etc.<br/> <br/> If you're in a forum thread and are a DF veteran, you ...

Re:Honest Point of View

<t>The Dwarvenite pieces use injection molds. These pieces have a high initial cost, for the $10K metal mold, and low ongoing cost for the plastic. As a result, these molds are best used for pieces that have high "print runs", such as basic floors and walls.<br/> <br/> The resin casting and plaster ...

Suggestions for Game Tile Painting Videos

<r>I would like my miniature bases to best match the game tiles. As a n00bish painter, I'm requesting a video tutorial for help!<br/> <br/> I have the following bases:<br/> * Flat base molded to the figure (eg. D&D miniatures)<br/> * Slottabase bases (eg. GW)<br/> * Broccoli bases (eg. Reaper)<b...

Re:Stretch Goals Speculation

<t>I'd guess Stefan's already doing this, but I'd like to see the first Stretch Goals end up as the equivalent of a "buy one set, get one free" offer, rather than adding different items before then. Also, if/when this happens, the Home page should be "cleaned up" to say this.<br/> <br/> One reason I...
