I agree.

Mountains shouldn't be with castles in the store.

Sewers shouldn't be with CBS in the store.

Burrows should be their own category in the store.

Please reorganize the store away from what kickstarter it came from, and please sort it by theme.
I understand organizing it by Kickstarter when it first comes into the web store but I really expected DF to break out the KS4 items before the restock.

I vote for consistency one way or the other!

My preference would be to separate Painted and Unpainted so i (as a lazy man) am not seduced by the unpainted price only to have to reevaluate once i load the cart up with painted ;)

On a separate note - Castles really needs to be organized in some type of cogent format - way too many items to be wily nily - i mean i love a treasure hunt, but seriously? I mean WE all know what we are looking for, but customers who are sane and don't eat sleep and breath this product might be daunted by the presentation ;)

This question is really for DF but I am sure everyone will want to know the answer.

When will KS5 items go up for sale on the web store?

Will it be after KS6 has ended? (likely best for higher KS6 pledge totals)

OR

Will it be after KS5 has fulfilled but before KS6 starts?


Here is another question for DF when are you all going to separate the Painted & Unpainted stock links for Castle Builder like you do for all the rest of the Set Categories?

Probably depends (at least in part) on shipping of KSV. I know that sometimes damaged or missing pieces from people's packages necessitate the team cracking open boxes they'd otherwise sell, and use bits from there to make things right. That's part of how the 'buy by the pound' thing works at Gencon; at least some of the stuff there (if not most of it) are from the leftovers of those boxes, from what the staff at the booth have told me in the past.

Hence, I'd assume they'd want to feel fairly certain that all of KSV has gone out, been received, and people have had a fair amount of time to ascertain that they're not missing anything, or dealing with damaged components, before they put the rest up for sale safely, or at least need to hold back a substantial quantity, lest they find themselves in a situation where they don't have the parts to hook up a backer.

I have no idea how much extra they snag for retail, or the scope of how much they usually have to break open for backer solutions, but based on the 'by the pound' stuff that ends up on the table, it's not an uncommon occurrence.

I would also go for after KSVI but it does not matter very much to me.

To be truthful I want it to be after KS6

Resurrecting this thread because I don't think people noticed, but it's a valid question. I, too, want to know, especially since I missed out on the KS ( :cry: ). Those jade pieces looked so nice!

I'm guessing maybe sometime after they're all shipped out, but I got into DF in January, so I'm not really sure and I can't tell you anything based on past KS.

Uit Spanje weer aan.
Hij brengt ons Sint Nikolaas,
Ik zie hem al staan.
Hoe huppelt zijn paardje
Het dek op en neer!
Hoe waaiend de wimpels
Al heen en al weer!
