I picked up a Gatehouse and a wall set. Basically a Ramparts without stretch goals since I didn't really want to spend the money on bits and bobs I didn't really want. Aside from the Watchtower, I didn't really get any Castle pieces in the KS (and still managed to spend over a grand - thanks DOUBLE ERINTHOR).

Also grabbed the LED floor set since that will be widely useful. I'm definitely working on how to build out scenes for D&D in 5th edition since combat is much faster, rather than filling the whole table with something that might not get used that much. I'm fairly happy with adapting Dungeon Tiles to work as Castles for now - we'll see what happens when I'm out of school and working again!

Presale Damage:
1x Straight Walls Pack
1x Modular Wall of Doom
1x Cube Spacer Pack
2x Wall Platforms (These seem like they'll be nice to use with KS1 pieces)
1x Gatehouse Set
1x LED Illuminated Floor
1x Big Buttress Pack

I am short on funds so I did not take part in the Pre-Sale, but even more I hope to buy more KS4 items once the store is stocked. I want to make sure and support the DF store as much as I can so they see it as a money making business and not a waste of capital. The KSs are great and so are the Pre-sales but having a store all year around is important to me.

I jumped on just before they shut it down to try to order some of the lighted floors, figures and a couple of other odds and ends, but I missed out. Is really for the best that I missed it. I am way over budget as it is. :-)

It turned out that my final pledge was short exactly twelve 1" extensions (if I calculated everything correctly), so the pre-sale add on was perfect for my needs. Sorry to hear, Stormfury, that you missed them.

I didn't notice! Thanks for the heads up.

Crap, I totally missed that! :(

Added in a few sets that I knocked off to 'afford' my KS pledge, such as :

Large Tower Roof
Small Batter Base
and a few more levels for towers.

Really wish I had seen the tower extensions. Guess I'll have to add them later.

My pre-sale order increases my pledge amount by over 25%.

I felt like I needed more walls:

1x Straight Walls Pack
2x Ramparts Inside Wall Pack
1x Ramparts Double Thick Wall Pack
2x Wall Spacers
1x Wall Platforms
1x Gatehouse Set

1x Castle Siege Defenders (I wasn't planning to get minis this time, but I decide something needed to go on the walls)
1x 1" Extensions (I'm not sure if I'll need these but I didn't want to miss them)

More of things in my original pledge:
1x LED Illuminated Floor (total of 2)
1x Cube Spacer Pack (total of 4)
1x Modular Wall of Doom (total of 2)
1x Suspended Parapet Pack (total of 3)
1x Cathedral Roof (total of 2)

I didn't add anything super exciting. Just a few extras and a few odds and ends.

1x Alley Intersections (for a total of 2)
1x Modular wall of Doom
1x Wall spacers to go with my Walls of doom
1x Big Buttress (for a total of 2)
1x Large Tower Palace
1x Cube Spacer Pack (total of 3 of these packs/30 cubes)
1x Stone Bridge (total of 3)
1x 8x8 Floors (seems like a cheepish way to add floor space to dungeons)
1x Large Round Crenellations
1x Mountain Elevation Pack (To go with my big Mountain Set)
1x Small tower Batter Base (I have two of the large coming already)
1x Necromacer wall Pack
1x Runic Theme wall pack (These two sets just to add little decor)

With this and my initial order I think I can make some amazing builds. Next year will be fun.

I went in for another $K. Picked up the batter bases I needed (4 lrg, 2 sm), the Castle Roof Mega pack, 3 more LED floors and some other odds and ends.

The floors are going to be super cool I think in a lot of different settings. Next year can't get here soon enough.

There were a few individual pieces I discovered wouldn't be in with my KS selection so I added them... which means I'll likely have some extras to trade, so I hope they'll be popular. I did go in on a set of the 1" extensions, too.

I'll likely be short some battlements, but I didn't have enough time to figure all that out so no big deal... I can just pick up what I need down the road, I figure.
