Kit/Parts for photo shoot backgrounds? 10 Years, 8 Months ago  
If I ever find a site that sells DF products on line (I live in Norway) I want to buy a schwack of them if for nothing else but to use a props for my mini photos.

Any suggestions as to what bits and bobs or kits would be best for this?

Wouldn't mind being able to build a multi level diorama with DF either.

Here in the states I'm always on the look out for stuff I can use:

Several Ideas:

O scale Train Stuff: I have found nice barrels and some of the Buildings are nice. Lottsa "odd bits" available.

Civil War (Ours!) Buildings many Buildings are available with civil war army men sets (54mm). These are about 16"x16" and work well with 25mm altogh the doors are big. also fences and bunkers. $10-12 US

I recently found a cheap plastic army man set that had a wild Fantasy Rock Bridge (Like In LotR) Why this was made I have no idea but I can use it just fine after a quick grey primer w/black wash.

I thought about using real (From outside!) rocks and sticks in my set-ups. Could make a very cluttered cave with piles of debis. hmmmm???

Oh Sorry!!!

Well, any/all of the DF Accesories Packs are wonderful and I would highly recomend them. (See DF Web site under "accesories" for part numbers and pictures)

-- Dungeon Accesories: Has sacks, boxes, crates etc.
-- Medievil Furnature: Tables Chairs Big Candles.
-- Treasure Set: Coin piles, scrolls,

I think there are only three. Most hard core DM's get several of these sets. For photos I imagine they would be good "props" for the minis.

Can't you just order from the website? Or do they not ship abroad?

Might want to check Ebay... there is a fair amount of stuff that goes through Ebay if the online store won't ship to you.

Last time I tried (OK, I admit it was about a year ago) the only store wouldn't ship outside the North American continent.

Still looking for a DF source nearby? Try Science Fiction-bokhandeln in Stockholm or Göteborg - they have started importing the range! This is where I get my regular fixes, by the way.

You can find them by going to their website: www.sfbok.se

They have an extensive mailorder service. Expect to convert 1 USD to 10 SEK if you order from them.

Probably not that much, as gaming in Sweden is quite anglified... Expect an American or Swedish game in the hands of the roleplayers, Magic: The Gathering in the hands of the cardfloppers, and an endless succession of Games Workshop minis among the minis people!

People do tend to try different things at the regular game conventions, which is where most of the new stuff usually take off to become staples. Scandinavians in general speak and read English better than most of the rest of the world where English is a foreign language, which means that games from France or Germany (great game producers both) usually have a hard time getting to Sweden. There are exceptions, though, as the original German edition of Settlers of Catan was a hit in Sweden long before it was translated into English or Swedish.

Some Swedish games have been translated into English. Most notably the Mutant Chronicles game system/campaign world, which included a roleplaying game, several minis board games, a miniatures battle game and ultimately two collectible card games (Warzone and Dark Eden). It was actually poor management of the company and not a failure of the games which ended most of that line, which is a pity, as I used to work as a freelancer for the company that produced all this.

Willypold,


I Have Of Course Heard of Warzone... (There are Miniatures for War Zone as well Yes)?... And Too Kewl on Having Worked for a Game Company... It is A Very Real Dream of Mine to Do so... (But Only as an Overpaid Freelance Think Tank Guy, to be Brought in for "Special" Projects of Course... Don't want any of MY Ca$h being Invested in an unstable Market like Games)...

What about Terrain? Any Kewl Miniatures or Terrain Products that are too regional for us to have heard of? Also Could You Define Angelified? I Remember Reading back in the 70's about how Switzerland had Policies against War Oriented Toys being Marketed... Is this the Kind of thing you are referring to?

Anglified - having to do with England or English. In this case a clear majority of all Swedish gamers playing games published in English, resulting in very strange language practices among gamers, as they freely and unabashedly mix rules terms in English with their Swedish... :)

As for Warzone I believe some company somewhere is re-launching the game, but I don't have any details about that. Yes, Warzone was the minis battle game, Mutant Chronicles the roleplaying game, Doomtrooper and Dark Eden were the cardgames - my mistake. In addition there were three boardgames using plastic figures.

Working for a game company is fun - and even better if the business practices are at least decent. I'd say there was a lot of inexperience when it came to things like persistence and having clear goals and visions about the product range - important considerations even for a game company...

Most people construct their own terrain, or try to avoid doing it... :) As a lot of people are members of fairly large game societies with their own premises, some people tend to become very good at producing terrain pieces for the entire group. There is a Games Workshop store in Stockholm, which is very good at promoting terrain building, and the large conventions always showcase some really fabulous stuff. The only commercial items on sale are the GW pieces and occasionally things like DF. Sometimes there people getting into production of handmade terrain pieces for sale - usually at very high quality. I know of at least a few people using Hirst Arts molds, and I'm sort of looking in that direction myself in order to complement the DF sets. So far they are the best and the most versatile of anything readymade!
