How do you measure movement/distance for the lake sets? Taking a look at the pictures they are beautiful pieces but I can't figure out how you would measure distance (I'm playing D&D 4E) for movement, area effects, etc.

The open water pieces are 4" square, so it shouldn't be too hard to figure where a mini with a 1" base should go if you prefer the 1" grid system. As for area of effect, you can always use templates and lay them down.

The lake set is one of my favorites, and I've used it to good effect with my players. You'll love it.

Each lake tile is 4 inches by 4 inches, whether marked into 4 squares by 4 squares or not. Each one-inch square is whatever distance you want -- I think we usually assume each square is 5 feet across, but it could be 3 feet or 10 feet or whatever you need it to be.

There are 4 corner squares, 8 edge squares, and 4 "interior" squares. A miniature set in the corner of a tile is obvious. Miniatures in an edge square are next to the edge of the tile, and on one side of an invisible halfway mark (which should be easy to judge visually). Mentally put invisible halfway lines across the tile to connect the opposing sides, and put the miniature next to both of those lines to occupy interior squares.

If that doesn't work, consider: It's unlikely that your lake setup will be so huge that you can't use squares along a shoreline as a reference. Keep an 18-inch ruler handy to extend the straight lines of the stone floor tiles when necessary.

That makes sense- thanks to you both! Now I just gotta find a way to buy more sets without my girlfriend freaking out... ;)

Matching funds. Spend (or save) an equal amount on something she approves of. It's less DF, but more harmony.

Or, get her into the hobby so she wants more DF too!

Matching funds, eh? Very nice indeed. To quote Homer Simpson, "I find your ideas intriguing and would like to subscribe to your newsletter."

Getting my girl into the hobby? That will never work. She's seen gameplay in person and just doesn't get it. I will however, settle for her delicious snacks when game night is at our place. For the record, since re-starting my gaming hobby EVERY game night has been at our place. That is no accident.
