I loved the MBS wooden window shutters! I wish I had another 3 sets of them! They never come up on e bay!

I'll second the door boat! I have 3 and have used them, they're awesome.

Pusherman,

I liked the door boat, I'm hoping that some company will come out with more 28mm boats that I like. The current one's on the market are ok, but not mind blowing in design and quality. Of course perhaps I'm missing some of them out there.

Harneloot,

Oh, I forgot about the DoE 6" Hallway. I really want some more hallways from my DoE sets so I'm looking forward to those as well.

I'm glad they sell any of the extra promos these days so you can get extras if they have them. I think it is good for the 6 month wait so the people who pre-ordered get them first, and assure themselves that they won't sell out. Also, it gives some people who can't afford a huge order all at once a chance to have some of these pieces for their gaming table as well. Isn't that good advertisement for DF ;). hehe

Mosaic intersection
DoE 6" Hallway
Door boat

I believe the Monster Nest (or the Ruined Entrance) were the first Promo pieces that have gone up for sale after the pre-order ended. Since then, every promo piece has gone up for sale 6 months or so afterward. I'm waiting eagerly for the DoE 6" Hallway!

From the pieces i own i think my fave is the door boat, its a great idea, the adventurers have lashed together a ramshackle raft from pieces of furniture.
I would love a mosaic intersection and medallion door. Been after ones for ages they never come up on ebay.
I think i remember Stefan saying he has some left over (or maybe i dreamed that) but can't sell them because they where promo pieces, which is a shame.
Maybe he could just give them away and not actually sell them :-D

I haven't been able to get a pre-order piece yet myself, though I hope to in the near future. From what I have seen, all of those piecdes are very nice. The ROTA Entrance and Ice Dragon are definitely some of the best.

I'm a big fan of the pre-order bonus pieces that DF often produces. I wondered which were everyone else's favorites? Also do you think DF should have some specialty pieces like these for every set? Is it reasonable for them to produce them or does it slow down production of the next set? Do you find the bonus pre-order pieces have added much to your gaming table vs. the regular set pieces?

Personally, I love the specialty entrances and pieces of the set's. They may not be as flexible as the standard set pieces, but they make me excited as a collector, they add central pieces to gaming tables that may not be usuable in every story/game, but when they are used WOW! The gamers around the table have their jaws drop when they see them. I think DF is all about these pieces of art and they really show off the amazing skills and dedication to the art form from Stefan and the other artists at DF!

Let the discussion begin! :)

My favorite DF bonus/single pieces in order of how much I like them (Note: I love all of these listed)

1. ROTA entrance! I love entrance pieces to each style of set.
2. Ice cavern "tall" stagmite (very beautiful and I"m a fan of tall pieces like this one and the taller doors that are being released in sets)
3. Ice cavern set's ice dragon (one of the most beautiful miniatures in my collection)
4. ROTA highly detailed intersection (the highly colored tiles)Beautiful floor in the piece. I love it!
5. ROTA Medallion wall secret door piece (cool piece that I think should have just been included in one of the sets so I could have lots of them ;)
6. Lizardmen ambushers (I love monster pieces rising from water tiles.) Krakens/tentacles/sea monsters/lizardmen with blow pipes ect.

Sorry, but I couldn't pick just one so I listed all of my favorites in order of preferance.

I also predict from artwork and the leaked picture of the carving of the hellgate hellscape entrance piece that it will rise to the top of my list once released if it is a pre-order bonus.

If anyone sells any of these discontinued/OOP pieces on ebay let me know so I can bid. ;).
