Will there be a 4"/parapet specific wall transition pack? Currently you have to spend $80 (2x$40 transition packs) to add one parapet pack (2 parapets) to any set of corners (unless you are just replacing an existing tower but why would you want to do that?).

What do the undersides of a Straight Battlement (or the Corner ones) look like? The front two supports on each piece prevent the battlement from falling forwards over the front of a wall, and I assume there will be magnets possibly near the front and back to hold it in place on a 2" deep complete wall, but what happens when it is used on a double thick wall? What prevents the piece from falling inwards if I press down on the edge of the floor near the middle?

Would a single tooth set back half an inch and running between the two front supports solve this problem?

Also, do you need wall platforms to use the battlement pieces, or do they function without them?

Thanks

It's probably been asked but is the long wall missing an arrowslit ? I expect 3 not 2.

Concerning the 2 Castles, I meant not to add them to the KS, but to add them to the Pledge Calculator...

Hi Jenney!

We just need a 100% clarification of the post Kickstarter procedure.

1. Will we be able to add funds to the KS after it has ended?


2. Will we be able to change the Pledge Level?`


3. How long after the end of the KS will we be able to add funds?


Also there is an urgent need for the new Castles (Count and Royal ones) to be added to the Kickstarter in order to know how much shipping it will be to non-US backers.

Otherwise keep on going all you people and continue to deliver a great KS.

You pledge for only one pledge level, any of them. You can then use the pledge calculator to know how much money you would need to both buy all the add-ons and all the supplementary pledge levels you want: http://www.dwarvenforge.com/kickstarter ... alculator/. Then you click "manage" your pledge at the top right of the KS page, click "change your pledge" and edit your new pledge amount. Once the KS is finished, DF will ask you which add-ons and which supplementary pledges you want with your pledged money. Make sure to update your pledge before the end of the KS so that it will unlock more stretch goals...
much obliged.

yikes!... what i selected added up waaaaaay too quickly. (and we still have a week to go)

something has to give...

Take Ramparts for example. Why is this? I thought free pieces were supposed to be free?
The shipping charge for everything is bundled into the base pledge.
Gatehouse allows you to buy add-ons already, so there is no shipping difference in the US anyway. So the Ramparts pledge is about $50 (painted) more than a Gatehouse + Straight Wall Addon with the extra international shipping, or $70 in the US. The other levels all add up to where the base pledge is the same or cheaper than the sum of addons, Ramparts is the only oddball.
