Pretty staggard that they do not even list large round crenellations :(

While we like the larger Battlements for more fantasy builds, much prefer the (non mushroom) look of the crenellations.

Thankfully from our point of view we managed to get all we need from the KS

Just ran SW d6 for my group a few weeks back - it is awesome and very easy to learn/teach

i recommend 2nd ed revised expanded - it is the most fun (exploding die - reroll all 6's and keep adding on!)

i have 3 different AT-ST's but none of those glorious AT-AT's - perhaps i will need to invent a scenario that forces me to buy a couple ;)
I LOVE SW d6. The system is great.

I checked earlier and discovered I ordered (2) large tower crens. Just need color on them still. ;)
Lucky you ;)
Crenellations are easy and fast to paint.

Hi DF Fans,

I asked the customer support about any ideas/plans to put the lagre crenellations into the webstore.
I asked furthermore, if we get the small tower pieces as well again.

They answered very quickly. :)

The answer was that nothing ist scheduled/planned yet. The factory capacity in the near future is assigned very much to Hellscape and Pathfinder.
But they said as well that they "pass on the request..., so we can keep in mind when we place the next order."

So let's cross fingers to be able to buy the large crenellations on day...

I wrote an email to the customer support and I'm going to post the answer for everyone else interested in the answer.
Much appreciated!

They are a VERY overlooked piece. I like them a lot more than the large battlements, which fall apart constantly if the table is bumped.
I have two Watchtowers. As standalone I like the battlements but in castle builds I have always the feeling that they are to large and don't fit into the castle.
Furthermore you can only put them on solid and arrow walls. LED Walls and Place Walls is quite difficult to put the battlements on top.

They have had a lot of trouble keeping that set in stock.

I got a couple of sets of those, either from the KS or when they stocked the store right after the kickstarter (or both since I have 2). Send an email to customer service asking if/when. Last fall I asked about Straight Battlements and I was told they would be in the big restock late spring early summer... So they may have an estimate of when they are coming.

Also, from the restock announcement, "Also included is some very limited reserve stock that we've transferred from the factory into the US warehouse." I think those were marked on the restock list as "very few." So several items that were not scheduled to be restocked right now got a little bump from stock the factory had setting around.

I seem to remember reading or hearing that there is a *minimum* of six months turn around from order to delivery of dwarvenite... depending on what the factory already has going, and holidays, and what not... and at least a year for resin sets. Imagine trying to predict what you will need in a six months, or a year.
