I'm still lost on how these won't tip over easily.
Rare earth magnets and terrain trays would solve this potential problem quite decisively.

At $40 incl. shipping for 3 painted trees, a stump, and a neoprene pond/dirt patch, I’ll buy at least a couple sets to try out.
Derp! Yah, gotta remind myself at times to think more like our modding super-stars William and Oldent. Adding a few magnets is within my time/skill constraints for sure! I did the "mod" on the elevation tray boxes to add magnets for the lid, so I think I could add magnets to these tree bases, which would make them work great with the forest terrain trays. I think I'll go in for a pack or two just to see how they work and add some variety.

I am also hoping they do a fall line up of trees.

I'm still lost on how these won't tip over easily. Hopefully they provide details / example videos on the KS page when it launches. I'm leaning towards "no", particularly with Dreadhollow coming.

There are many more pictures on the Monster Fight Club Instagram page:

I hope they do fall colors, like they did with some of their resin prototypes (which I can’t figure out how to embed an Instagram image of here, but are at the above link).

I would definitely pledge for those trees! They will be a nice complement to the DF trees. Variety in a forest build can only make it look better imho.

At the moment probably in the 3-5 sets range due to the large forest portion of my pledge for DF. Would love to see some standard minis in the same shots for scale. Like on the rocks and bridges and under the trees. Would help to better understand how well they will work in play. I know I saw a few of the prototype shots taken at the Con and they look like they should be a good fit. Some "Sir Scale" aka Reaper type shots would be great.

This interests me also, but maybe more retail. I really need to see DF before I decide which way to take my outdoor tree terrain.

Thanks for posting the link, I am defiantly interested in this KS.

At the moment I am only thinking about at most two of any particular set, but most of them should help add more variety to my DF collection.

I pretty much consider Dwarven Forge terrain to be the best for the core of any collection, but other companies doing plastic terrain is great.
