I have a very small idea I can't seem to find.
A Hall-tree or two with canes and things in it and a few different Coat-racks... that's all. ..................... well maybe a wall mounted coat-rack with a magnet. ;)

EDIT -
O.K. - what about DF art (from the minds in Valoria) in mini picture frames with magnets. :shock:

i tried this - and it works!

this picture is missing from the original post:

thats just blue tac and a corner stair bit - plus i pushed the floor out WAY more than 5 feet (just to see if it would tip) - but i think a corbelled wall would be awesome - if they did it as a CBS wall insert, then the posts would support the cantilevered weight no problem
Ooh, nice. You could also do it as a variant corner post instead of a wall insert? There are some ramifications on versatility there. Heck, I guess you could offer both and get maximum value and stability. But that one tiny thing alone (along with an advanced builder set for Tudor) would go far towards making the cities more variable. Would also like some street ramps to allow you do to multi level builds easier.

I haven't looked at the KS yet, but if the second picture is from it, I love the way the wood frame portion of the buildings cantilever out past the stone foundation walls. They did this a lot in the past.
Sure hope DF does a few city expansions in the future, there is so much to add to a city scene. Different styles and shapes to flesh out for ever... ;)

I saw that too, and was almost tempted until I noticed the 3x3 format (plus I don't really want to get into yet another custom clip system). But I do really appreciate how organic the resulting builds look.

Ideas for upcoming kickstarters

Post by AnimeSensei » Thu Jan 10, 2019 6:33 pm

I know there are plenty of 3D printed terrain options on Kickstarter these days, but this one caught my eye. (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ro ... f=activity) I'm not backing it because I don't have a 3D printer, and I don't think the textures are detailed enough. I also really dislike how they do castle walls. However, it has some things that now that I've seen them, I really, REALLY want DF to do the next time we re-visit cities.

The biggest thing that caught my eye was the merchant shopfronts. I would LOVE to be able to make something akin to Diagon Alley. It would bring a lot of character to the DF cities. I can see a whole new line of tudor and stone as well (maybe even in slightly different colors) so there is more variety between different buildings. If any campaign would have the best reason to had new sculpts and paint palettes, it's cities. Not all buildings look the same! :)

Additionally, it looks like this kickstarter is doing one thing I tried to see if DF could do in KS5, the double window (or insert) corner. I'm still hoping for this in a future dungeon kickstarter.
