It reminds me of my "Non-Castle" Castle Pledge. I didn't get a Castle in KS4, yet still ended up somehow spending more money on that project than any other one to date. That's a sign of an amazing variety of offerings.

Seriously? After this successful campaign with so much responsiveness, modularity, and customizability offered by DF, there is sadness over a random stretch goal for one pack out of a multitude of packs? The allure of "stretch goals" never ceases to amaze me.

I have dozens of reasons to increase my pledge (pieces and paint schemes outside my budget) and will hopefully talk myself out of them in the PM phase in the name of fiscal sanity 🙂

Nothing but happiness here over what me and my family will be getting next summer!
You're right. It's too easy to focus on the negative, but there are a lot of amazing things in this KS. I'm personally not interested in miniatures, terrain trays, LEDs or alternate cavern paint jobs. Despite those self-imposed limitations, there is still too much amazing things on my want list here, and I still won't be able to get everything I want in the PM. There's so much good stuff in this KS project, that it's almost a blessing when a new element doesn't interest you, since there's an abundance of beautiful pieces to pick from.

We have got gazillions of minis to paint, well ok maybe just millions, well definitely thousands (not kidding).

Some of DF's most memorable SGs have been miniatures we remember the forlorn lamenting of many backers for not getting the double headed croc in CBS.

One extra B&B terrain piece will not stand out, but a painted mini of a man drinking beer gets 'oh cool' reaction and used straight away. A pyromaniac gasmask wearing rat was a hit in the warren.

Heads on spikes - cool.

The problem with DF providing all these break out add-on packs is that they can't put SGs in each.

Just saw the Primordial stretch goal. No reason for me to increase my pledge. DF is ending this kickstarter with a dud for me. It's sad because I really like there terrain!

I can understand if you don't have minis, but if you're buying DF, chances are you've got minis to play with it :)
This is a very good point.
