Quick, someone determine whether that is true 1" scale, or KS1 scale:

Personally, I like to plan major purchases ahead of time and DF is more likely to get my funds if I am savings towards a specific purpose. Otherwise, I may get distracted with some other KS or in this case my daughter's wedding.

I believe we are all saying the same thing, "if they don't talk about it, how can they draw attention?" It may be that they think that by not talking about it they are generating interest; however, I disagree with this mindset. Those people already interested in the Dwarven Forge are going to be interested in this kick starter no matter what, but they can't very well spread the word about it if they have no idea what it entails. That is where the problem lies.

I would not say advertising. I would say keeping the community involved. If they wait until after they deliver KS4 you are talking maybe a month lead up (assuming March again).

Ya I agree Vegomatic, I don't think they should be making posters and saying "Get ready for KS5 that will launch on March 18". I would just like them to start a dialogue about what we can expect from KS5 in broad strokes. Also I would like them to ask what people are looking for in what ever is coming.

Stefan was on the forums discussing in broad terms the castle KS prior to the delivery of CBS.

Perhaps they feel they should not be advertising a new kickstarter project until the previous one has delivered?

Animesensei, I agree. That would be a good strategy. I hope that is their plan. :D

If I were DF I would announce now that a sneak peek will be revealed after the holidays (to avoid people not shopping from the webstore if something is getting re-released) and then release the theme with a teaser image. Maybe one more teaser a week or so before the campaign as well. Just enough to make us salivate.

If you walk past a bakery, you smell the treats and they draw you into the store. Holding back enticement does nothing but let people keep walking, because they had no idea what you were cooking up.
