I am still waiting for them to start shipping out of Australia. Their and Reaper Bones "Hub" in Australia just seems like a huge delay to me, I hope it actually is saving them a lot of money.

I did go back and look at all the email correspondence and updates and there were three updates (40,42,43) that mention the soft material for the bridges, but no mention of an Entrance problem.

Also the Entrance was a $4.00 Add-on accepted on my invoice, so it's time to ask it from the horse... :roll:

pacarat, the return address states Sacramento, CA.
Cool! Mine might be waiting at homecfor me as I had a USPS notice of a pkg coming from there this week.

I'll check with Secret Weapon Minis then.
Was hoping it was discussed sometime by them and I missed the discussion, but I guess not.

I think the Entrance was added as an "add-on item" in the pledge manager when it came out.

I like the Bridge Sets, but they do get repetitive with that arch piece. I think I'll cut and green stuff a few of them to represent the "DF Cavern" look over the "SW Mine" look. Maybe a few Stalagmites and possibly even a large Stalactite replacing an arch or the other bend piece with the small spire sticking up. Might even cover some of the post and beam supports with natural rock outcrops instead. Then I might fill in the 'L' shape bases on the two larger bridge base pieces, so they can replace a floor tile rather than sit on top. All that just because I want it all to mix better with DF caverns.

Not to be a party pooper, but the material is a bit soft, could have been a bit stiffer resin or whatever it is. Although it should make mods much easier than if it were a harder substance. Also, the medium sized bridge has a small three board plank piece that isn't long enough to reach it's support, so it looks like a 'pit' trap ready to give in. These are not a deal breakers, I'm just a picky person. ;)

I'll post some pictures when I get around to these 'fixes'. :lol:

EDIT - P.S. - I can not believe I was one of the earlier mailings, that never happens. :?: :?
Curious where it shipped from - I backed this, too.
