I have a few questions for those of you who know about resin.

I know from pass conversations on this site and others that not all miniature/terrain resins are equal and that what equipment you use with that resin and how well you know what you are doing vastly effect the quality of the end product.

With that said Forge Prints which in the last few of their KS had just called the material they used resin has in this KS on the main page said "All of our models are made with an industry leading hard plastic resin that is both extremely durable and capable of capturing astonishing details!" and in the comments said "Also you are going to see some new categories on the store, as well as every product will have a material data point now. we will flag items if they are our standard high quality plastic or our new semi rigid near indestructible plastic. You are going to start to see certain accessories where it makes sense show up in the new material. And most likely an entire new category in the site taxonomy to make it easier to shop.
There are pros and cons to both of our materials, I can tell you our new material has a higher production cost and we do not have quite as much production capacity with it as well so we will not be simply switching everything over. Also the molds are slightly different as well so its a significant deal for us to change products over."

My first question is when is resin also a plastic? I realize that I maybe thinking in laymen terms and they maybe talking in manufacturing or chemist terms. They may want to keep the secrete formula so to speak a secrete and I understand that also. I just wonder if this is a bunch of marketing speak or if they really have something next level. I saw the KS video they did for the tiles but my questions on accessory durability did not real get answered in the KS comments section. So my second question is if the tiles that I really do not need will last for years but the accessories I do really want will either need to be babied or broken in a year?

I am not kind to my Dwarvenite, I love using it and then throw it in to bins I do not see what I think of resin surviving that long term but their video was impressive. So resin gurus what do you think?

They just posted an add-on with outhouses... sold! If they were by themselves I'd be getting like 6 of them. Something nice to randomly place around the dungeon... XD
Yup - six pack of outhouses would be an instant buy from me as well.

Tiles from Green Hoard

The Adventurescape beach tiles will be perfect to recreate the Black Plague Green Hoard tiles.

Dwarven Forge no longer supports/stocks the resin inn.

I am going to add the Adventurescape kitchen tiles doors and windows for more options. I like the Stone tile well enough to at least add the round doors.

The Mini Monster buildings are very nice. I do not use them because the style does not match what I already have.

I'm getting a free mini outhouse with one of the other dungeon décor KS that I backed recently - should be receiving it in the next couple of weeks....

I've only looked at a few 3-D terrain sites other than DF, but I notice they all try to show how they are compatible with DF. This shows me that they all consider DF the industry leader and the one whose standards they need to live up to and match. It's a really big compliment in my books. What Forge Prints has brought to the table is going to add some nice diversity to my builds without forcing DF to try to make everything. I know the whole DF team will continue to WOW us with their creativity and ingenuity. Looking forward to it :D

I'm in too for the docks ! ;)

As a 3D terrain gamer & collector, I do not see an offense here in this project, pledge manager or not of the DOD running right now.

As far as I remember on this forum and the old one, many creators shared at any moment their compatible products with Dwarven Forge. Psominiatures, Mini Worlds or Dungeonext with his new columns & pilars set (yeah another advertisment I did OMG hey ;) ) etc.
It allows us to expand our universe and to not being limited to one trademark which never will offer everything.

For example, by surfing on this forum, I saw a fan who used and magnetized some Thomarillion stuffs that complete perfectly the DF city and I just bought it too.

I will try to do the same because it's a nice idea to mod this stuff with the city set of DF I use.

Just a recall in case you all forgot : exchange is the base of humanity before the money business kills everything. I'm glad Stefan let us a section here to discuss other things and share it.
It proves us he's fair and that his brain isn't Game Workshoped !

Maki Games had to censor DF caverns attached to their dungeon during their campaign last year.
I now find great that this campaign is not under censor.
It shows how pefectly you can match your 3D scenery from DF with a new product line.
It gives customers to each side and bring new ones also in this hobby.

If it really comes to be disturbing posting other miniatures or 3D sceneries photos & videos, links & projects no matter the moment because evil forces will force us to not think differently here, to be the slave of a monolith; then I think I will immediately quit this forum to a peaceful place.

Stefan runs DF with a great team and has his own projects. He just announced he will do a KS with docks later.
It will be with his own ideas and his own vision of the things as always. You see since the begining the results.
There's no fear to have about the difference only a fantastic potential to develop and go on for a better place !

Yeah, even if I get up to a couple hundred with Adventurescapes it is nothing compared to how much I spend on DF.
