I pledged, got nothing as of now.
But It seems he's just very late, I'll be waiting for it.
Same for me. Pledged, but no news on shipping.
Me three and four...two full sets.

Wondering if anybody here pledged for this and has gotten anything yet?

If so what do you think of it?
I did get mine! I actually missed the (2nd) KS -- the first KS was canceled. I ended up late pledging for the 2nd. It looked for a while like there was going to be trouble; issues with the manufacturer, based on the updates. I started to think they wouldn't deliver, and I wrote it off. But about a month ago, I got mine. I can try to post some pics if I remember, but they aren't painted yet. I think I'll just use my DF caverns paints. (I wish the resin was darker --- these and the Secret Weapon Mines are both pretty light, which means more work to paint.) They're actually quite great pieces, I think. I just love how the organic shapes can really make the scene look much more natural.

Some folks might be interested in checking out the following Kickstarter.


They are some nice organic cavern tiles in resin, which can be put together in a variety of ways. I am interested in using these to augment my cavern tiles, and I'd paint them up in the same scheme.

The guy has a good sense of humor; he calls his resin "dorkenite".

I agree that price per piece (especially when comparing with DF) is not the right way to measure value here. Many of the pieces are probably 4x to 8x the size of a "standard" DF piece.

Looks very nice, but I really don't have the budget for this right now. Looks like I'm doing alright with my KS2 collection. Still need to paint my Erinthor Mountains.
I couldn't afford them myself unless this campaign was successful lol. I'm literally throwing my last dime at this.

I think when ppl see the size of a $13.50 piece in their hands, they'll see it's scale for what it is. It's value per volume isn't much more than a bonesium piece of equivalent volume. People don't typically weight value solely on cost. A medium sized cinder, a $20 bones dragon, next to a $20 cave wall pack ain't a bad trade.

What makes these cost more is if you are International, and especially if you are European. Also, I have valued the labor of painting at a professional rate of $15/hr. If this campaign skyrocketed, I was going to actively train and employ local tabletop painters to help with the load.

After fulfillment, TerraScapes will be made to order. I'll basically give John at Effin Cool Minis a call, then they'll cast them. I do not plan on offering them painted after fulfillment. A customer can always request it through my commission services. However, my commission service's aren't always open. That's why I will be making how to paint TerraScapes videos which will cover basic dry brushing and wash techniques.

... and I'm going on... lol I blame the wine!
