Alternative to MBA 3 Years, 1 Month ago  
As this gent doesn't compete vs Dwarven Forge, I think it is okay to share this. I just received the first of two small orders today and I was shocked at how well these are constructed. The quality is simply amazing and try to beat the price. I was the only bidder and it looks like the other auctions go that way as well. Took a bit of time to get here to the States but well worth the wait. I am definitely buying more.

I have also bought from the company and they have awesome product at a low price. I have even considered buying some just to get the roofs to add to MBS. The roofs I have are small though with my biggest being 4" by 5.5". This hurts since 0.5" more would have been perfect to get a 4" by 6" roof.

If it does not interfer with DF, I was going to consider asking to advertise to the DF crowd to JUST BUY ROOFS. Maybe they would even make a 4'x 6" or 6" x 6" just for us?

I asked and he said that yes, he could sell roofs separately. I have not yet followed up with him on that. (this was a few weeks ago) I think we should agree on some other sizes as well, maybe something larger? I was thinking maybe 6x8" or even an L shape.

I also wrote and he confirmed that selling only roofs is an option. I asked him about his Inn roof and he said they are 165mm long by 65mm wide approx. So 6.5" by 2.5". As he shows his Inn he puts two roofs side by side to get a ~6.5" by 5" roof. A little overhang is OK, but 6.5" x 6" would have been better.

I know he has 4" x4" roofs because I have several. He also has some L shape but I think the size is small.

What is the most practical large size we should ask about, 10" x 10" or 125mm x 125mm?

I will try to measure the roofs I have tonight but I gotta go now.

I have long admired those roofs and plan to pick some up. I think a little extra variety would be good though. Between Tom/Solo's, these, and the odd homemade roof, I could have a very cool looking little village.

My first order was for two small buildings that totalled 15 British pounds. Shipping to California was an additional 12 pounds.
So the total was $45.
My second order was for the old water mill and a medium house, price was 23 pounds with another 28 pounds shipping. So, $86 total with shipping. These things are very solid and a bit heavy. I haven't received my second set yet. I will post pics then.
However, the insides are finished.

Thanks for the tip! I'm probably going to get a bunch of these. The price can't be beat especially for prepainted.

Holy freaking cow these things look great. I'm not so sure it was wise to post this here, Arcarius, as now you may have some bidding competition. I am very pleased that you did, though! :]

Yeah, now I am outbid on an auction.....coincidence? Well, the greater good and all that. Maybe this will build me some good gamer karma.
