Still nothing! Four weeks have passed and you should think that with the european community this wouldn't take so long. I already wrote several messages to the seller and he is checking with his post office too see what can be done. He said the package was insured though so a reshipping is possible.

I did get part of my order so far. I purchased the 7 building town set and they were sent in three boxes. Two of the three arrived earlier this week. Contacted the seller and he said that is not unusual, so I am hanging on for the 3rd box.

The pieces so far are quite nice by the way. Well-made and nicely painted. The interiors end up being a little small -- it's not like a big sprawling tavern or manor that you can make with DF medieval building sets. These eBay pieces and DF do seem to complement each other; the eBay buildings look great for outdoor encounters while the DF is better for indoor situations.

I'll post some pictures when I get all my pieces.

Also, his roofs are just not the right dimensions to fit properly with DF. I never got a response to my question about selling roofs in 2 inch increment sizes (4x6, 6x6, etc.), so I'm guessing he isn't interested in making new molds to accomodate this. Too bad!

I'm in California by the way, if that helps with estimating shipping times.

I just came home from work and 2 of the 3 boxes arrived today, too. I ordered the 7 houses village and another one. Still have to check for any broken pieces. At least I have something to show for my roleplaying session this sunday.

Re:Alternative to MBA 2 Years, 11 Months ago  
So I got all my eBay buildings and combined them with Dwarven Forge, some trees, and Star Wars minis. Yes, the Star Wars minis are a little out of place, but that's what I'm playing with my kids currently. This was a mission to a backwater Outer Rim planet with a medieval indigenous society currently being occupied by Imperial forces and a bunch of their Fringe allies. They've taken over a small, walled village. Pix below.

Also I emailed Martyn (the seller) and he was willing to consider making roofs in inch dimensions to fit with DF depending on buyer demand. His current roofs are a pretty good fit style-wise, but a little short/narrow (see the last two pictures below). I am very excited he is willing to produce molds in inch increments.

I asked his permission to mention this on the DF forum and he is interested in knowing how much buyer interest there would be in his roofs as single pieces. I've asked him to consider making 4x4, 4x6 and 6x6 pieces.

If you are interested leave a post below or send me a PM.

I have no connection with Martyn other than my recent eBay purchase and my communication with him about seeking singe roof pieces.

I would certainly be interested in at least 2 of each of the sizes you listed, possibly more if he made the roofs different (color, tile, straw, shingle, etc).
Nice setup of the village btw.

I'd be interested if they were considerably cheaper that Tom/Yansolo's roofs. I love what they make, but just can't afford the prices + shipping right now.

Those buildings really do look great, even next to the MBS stuff. I still haven't gotten my order from him yet, though.

I'm interested in roofs. Will you ask if he will give a discount if you buy a large order and shipped to the US?
