I am grateful that DF have added a 'Sewer only' pledge level.
I have now had time to look at it and work out the money and what I would actually be getting and not getting..
The Undercity Sewer set (painted) is $175 (Which is $10 more than the same Monster Sewer set - add-on and includes $20 shipping)
I then add +$75 for the 'top-up' International Shipping to the UK.
Thats a $250 entry level for Painted + International. With no extras. No Stretch Goals.
Then I would want another Monster Sewer Set as whilst one set looks great - 2 seems to make a full dungeon set up with enough to get the players lost!
Thats $165 ($205 with shipping)
I already own some MBS sets and the one other Stretch Goal that does interest me is the roof sets. But I am REALLY not sure why there are walls with doors in these sets ?!?
I want to buy 1 x Terracotta Roof and 1 x Slate Roof total (painted) $45 each set. ($65 with shipping) But I would end up with 4 x walls with doors that just seem a waste... (especially as I can imagine that pieces with moving parts are the most expensive.)
This all adds up to ($250 + $205 + $65 +$65) = $585
Shipping is $155 of this total.
Now before I press 'Pledge' I am thinking 'why'... There will not be any stretch goals to the 'Sewer Only' entry point so why not just wait until these reach the UK stores next year and buy what I can through Thod ?
I got what I asked for... but weighing up the money I may pass on this KS3 entirely. It has been a huge KS. For me to get enough of everything to be a useful amount on my table would have cost me circa $2k. Which ever way I do go - I wish this KS3 and everyone backing it and DF the best wishes. I am glad that the main goals have been reached and the main moulds are all but funded. Unlike KS1 where I actually pledged not because it was really getting something I wanted and already had in resin, but because I sensed that DF needed help and had to beat off competition. As a long standing DF fan owning dozens of resin sets, I wanted Stefan to continue leading this 3D field for us. its his passion and hobby, not just a business. Now we are at KS3, DF is breaking into new fields and doing it under its own steam. There are enough willing and happy backers to get the new sets made and out into the world and KS is now more of a mechanism than essential. Happy to keep using KS's but I implore you to make them smaller. Maybe do 2 a year and not have them so ranging ??
I hope KS4 will bring back the Tower Battlements as part of the rumoured 'Castle' build and that I can put to good use all of my KS1 pieces 'above ground'. I look forward to all the arches, crenelations, battlements + 'Moat' expansion packs, gaols, lean to wooden stables, great dinning hall fire places with braziers and tables and maybe a working draw bridge!
And... As this thread has also got some adventure chat (and that is why we are here after all!) I love a city / town / villages. Lots of adventures take place in them and the best role playing as the characters 'chat' in the bar, go get their armour fixed at the smithy and draw attention when they 'get it wrong' and walk around in their armour all day or 'over dressed' and attract the cut purse... I always DM the towns with gusto and build it as big as my table allows:
This is the 'town' part of "The Keep on the Borderlands". You are all going to SOooo love having buildings!
