Hi and thanks for the welcome, @animesensei!

Epix Haven actually started because of DF. We were a gaming group having bought a ton of DF stuff from the US; this was back in 2014 following their Kickstarter. Playing with their game tiles, new ideas sprung up; possibly related to our gaming group including a designer, three painters, a sculptor/potter, and all nerds and gamers. Our drafts started out being modular pieces but ended up with the product you now have.

But in our new Kickstarter running now, we’re actually unveiling more modular pieces, like small Wall bends that allows for more variations in the setup. More to come (we hope).

(And a shout-out to you, Cedric; long time no see!)

I posted reviews of some of their original resin buildings on RPG.net. : https://www.rpg.net/reviews/search-revi ... edric+Chin

I *highly* recommend the Tudor House for RPG's, whenever you want an inn. The inner area is a little small, but functional. The Stone House is more rustic, but may be preferable for wargamers who want a generic house for terrain.

Welcome, EpixHaven! Thanks for the info on your products! I have a few and like them a lot; I would love a more modular system if you ever offered it; your paint jobs seems to be on par with DF and I appreciate that.

Hi! This is the voice of Epix Haven!

First off; thanks to @William for some truly Epic pictures how to use/combine our Towers!

To @rabbit burner; thanks for being one of our original backer: You contributed in making Epix Haven models a reality!! Concerning Stairs; yes, the Stairs are tricky. They “should” work at all levels, but as resin tend to alter a tiny bit during production, though even a small millimeter, there are problems. Our designers have accounted for this and have altered the Stairs; not much, but enough for the Stairs to no longer be of any concerns. Actually; more models have had small alterations to them, improving after feedbacks from customers. That’s why our Kickstarter actually uses the wording “version 1.5” of all models.

To @Mister Frau Blucher concerning Corner Tower; there’s now been unlocked several Arched Walls that lets you connect walls in different orientations without the need of Corner Towers.

To @marcoreds concerning Facebook updates; The Epix Haven team consists of several persons. Those handling the Kickstarters are not the same handling Facebook. As discussed in earlier posts at Facebook, sickness and personal reasons have severely limited Facebook communication; as a team, we apologize this. The Epix Haven Kickstarter team is continuously monitoring and answering any questions that arise.

Concerning Amazon: Being based in Norway, we’ve had some issues selling in EU-states (Norway is not a part of the EU). When “something” happens (often to do with Tax issues), Amazon stops selling our models until sorted out. We use two tax companies to help us out; one in England and one in Germany, but even paying them a lot of money to help us out, there are always some papers that needs to be filled in and things stop once more. This is of major concern for us and we’ve decided not to use Amazon in Europe any more. When we yet again are up and running in England/Germany (we have a lot of stock there), we’ll lower the prices considerably to clear out our stocks.

Now that's cool - thanks William.

Wonder if this applies to the Castle corner towers ?.....

Just a quick FYI post.

Having two of these I noticed that multiple Free Standing Towers can be stacked in various different configurations. The base even fits into the top crenelated topper. The last pictures show two towers using every piece except the second flag pole.

Just a few examples...

It's pretty versatile even with only four levels. ;)

Was aware of the STL KS - but did not realise they were offering existing Resin sets as add-ons.

We too wanted the Half Tower and the Half wall is something we would like them to provide a Resin option.

At the moment we don't have a 3D printer and have already backed a number of STL projects on the assumption of getting one, one of which was for a Castle.

With KSIV, original Epix Haven castle and even the old Citadel Castle we have enough big castle pieces to keep us happy :)
