What would be everyones wish list for future pieces for sci-fi sets if they ever made anymore? What do you want in your builds?


I haven't seen the sci-fi sets in person. Could those of you with sci-fi sets be kind enough to post in this thread a set of summary pictures of whats included in each DF set?

Law, you magnificent b*****d. You've just made me decide to invest in some hell scapes as soon as funds allow. Those were some excellent pictures and a fun story to read. Thank you very much for sharing.

Found an old set of SF pics that I posted back when the Hellscape stuff came out. Lava world sci-fi setting is fun, plus I liked simulating explosions and earthquakes with the lighting and focus.

I think that if a new KS could get us the old sets back in stock (perhaps in dwarvenite even?) I would collect them. I would like to see some more DF set pieces though to really make great parts of space ships.

I would have loved to have seen the SF setting thrive, the stuff that was produced was AWESOME. The floors with removable panels, the columns, the computer terminals... it was awesome.

Sadly, though, when the line did it was almost a relief to me -- I was able to concentrate on the other lines, and they all work together in a way that SF never did. (well, that's not entirely true -- the SF stuff in the caverns makes for a great alien landscape terrain, or Batcave, and it could always serve as a "man behind the curtain" reveal anywhere else. You could either use other sets as a kind of "holodeck" in a SF campaign, or throw SF elements into a fantasy campaign to mess with your players and confuse the heck out of their characters.

In any case, I kept most of what I had, but I thinned out my collection where I could (including selling some of it to HeroQuestFrance!) If the line does come back, I'll probably regret selling off what I did. But in the end, it made more room for Catacombs, Woodland set, Hellscape 2....

I've started to collect Sci Fi sets too :



I only missed the beta set that I'm desperately looking for it !
Ready to pay a lot to get it but ...
2 months ago I could find the corridors of this set which is the half ..

Restocking some SF sets is something impossible if I understood what I read before. That's sad. I'm not against a KS of SF.

Right now I'm trying to finish the paint of the furniture I could buy :


The 3D terrain is excellent for space hulk, space crusade, doom, gears of war, zombicide (laboratory) etc

I think Sci-Fi is a terrific candidate for a kickstarter, whether in resin or Dwarvenite. It would allow DF to find out how much demand there actually is for Sci-Fi sets, and if the target number is high enough they won't be required to fulfill orders below a profitable margin.

However, I'd wait for at least two more kickstarters and a restock or two in the proven ranges, so they have a better idea of how kickstarter numbers relate to continued demand for the same or similar product(s).
Favorite Pieces: Chasms, 45 Degree Passages, River & Lava Banks, Ledges, Large Curved Walls, Elevation Arch

Interest in Future Sci-Fi Sets?

Post by Wiglaf » Sat Jun 01, 2013 11:52 pm

Greetings,

While waiting for my Game Tiles to arrive I've started to collect some of the Sci-Fi sets to have some fun with this summer. I remember the range being larger a few years ago, couldn't afford it at the time, and was wondering if some of those sets might come back in the future? I really like what is offered right now, and can't wait for the bigger floor tiles to come back into stock, but there are a few things that I'd like to see added to the range if possible.

-A large 'Vault' or bulkhead door that could be either the entrance to the landing bay of a smaller starship, or the sealed entrance to a secret underground military complex. Something at least two squares wide would be awesome. Four squares wide would be amazing!

-A large view-screen wall piece. Decorate the bridge of your ship or take in the view of the planet below. Or perhaps it is a tactical display of a larger struggle, or an engineering schematic of the base or ship itself.

-Maintenance equipment or large machinery. Need your players to fix the filtration system before environmental control can be brought back on line? Creeping through a long abandoned missile launch site trying to avoid detection by the terrorist cell while making sure the missiles never launch. A firefight in the enemy's hidden base is much better when there is cover around.

I would be very happy to see things like those here. If anyone else has suggestions I'd love to hear them. I've got three room sets, two passage sets, and one accessory set coming, and I'm already thinking about expanding this once I see what I'll need the most of.
