This stuff looks great. One thing I'd like to see though, is that the beds also be sold separately. I will definitely want one of those medieval bar sets. But I can imagine wanting many of those beds for many purposes. And I would not want more than one bar set just to get more beds.

Ah, but the bar is so much more than just a bar.

It's a counter.

As such, it can be used in a shop(pe) or a bank or even a courthouse.

The straight section(s) can also be put up against a wall to make cabinets, which might go well in a bedroom -- with the beds.

Greetings from Italia! Just on our honneymoon here and checking up on the Forum gossip...Yes, the Bar is in several pieces, so Yes, if one gets more than one Set many, many combinations are possible...even just one set will have many possibilities of course too...The "Tavern set" was supposed to be released in March/April but because we had a few improvements to do we were forced to push it back to the next container...sorry, but just had to get it right!
Hope it is liked by everyone.
Ciao!
Stefan.

Well, Jeff?

Two bars, perhaps. But ANY self-respecting innkeeper will have LOTS of beds for his/her customers. Same goes for ... houses of ill-repute.

So, what's the answer? We WILL need lots of beds, one way or another. Even for private homes, there will be more of them than there will be inns/funhouses (at least, in any town I build, there will be!).

Let us know, guy!

See ya!

The MBES coming in March will have two beds in it.

I'll talk to Stefan when he returns about either adding beds to the Tavern Set -- or making a Set of 4 Beds individual item. The problem is that the factory makes us order a LOT of anything we order -- so we have to somehow sell 100s of these bed sets to make them at least somewhat profitable.

BTW, I hope Stefan is not mad at me for putting photos up of the Tavern Set pieces so quick. I wanted to show that the Medieval Building line is going to expand a lot in 2007 -- so collectors who have not bought one yet should jump on the band wagon. There should be some cool set-ups this late Spring.

Oh...and the Tavern set will most likely be an accessory set with a cost of $29 -- like the Medieval Furniture Set and the Dungeon Accessories Set. More exact info later.

Well, Jeff, 4 beds/set, 25 sets make ONE hundred count. 2 beds/MBES, 50 MBES is another 100. 4 beds/Tavern, 25 taverns is another 100. I'll buy at least 4 bed sets, 2 MBES, and 3 Taverns. That leaves 278 beds max out of that first 300 beds, and you haven't even ordered the individual sets yet!
How many 100's will China demand as a minimum order? I can only sleep in so many places at one time; can we drum up LOTS of orders BEFORE you talk to the factory?

I have to admit i would like to get a set of 4 beds.

I am thinking for like barracks like set ups. I just finished, last night, the first adventure in the Savage Tide Adventure path and there was a room that called for like 10-11 single beds... And while everything might not need 10 beds, i can envision needing 6 to possible 8 for some things (and they are not so rustic as that they wouldn't fit into modern or such, even Sci-fi for a retro feal) that i could make me want a few, but to get 6 beds don't know if have the money desire to get 3 Tavern Accs. sets, while i do want two bars worth (for as others say counters, etc). 3 would be pushing it, and 4 would be too much, the marginal return on the third or 4th counter, as compaired to getting just the nice beds for stuff, if i could get 4 beds from 2 Tavern Acs (4 beds) and 4 as a pack i would have my 8 and be very happy, and give me enough stuff to populate 8 rooms, some place (second floor, or other random room) and a nice sized tavern, as compaired to having way more than what i want for the tavern, which might push me to not get the extra set for some time... oh idea maybe 2 beds as pre order promo... :) ;)

Don't know that I'd need more than four or five as I already have some nice beds but I DEFINITELY want the DF beds!

More beds would be great. I'd definitely buy a 4-pack (or two).

Too bad they're not stackable ... bunks are great for troop barracks. I may just have to "kratzer" a few of 'em up with my dremel ;)

I hope the bulk items like beds and tables are offered separately as well.

If there are too many of these built into the tavern/bar set then it may discourage some sales to those who already have an extensive collection of the like, (common furniture) minis.

Plus I do believe that there may be a wider market for such DF pre-painted mini furniture pieces. These customers may not collect or use other DF terrain at all, but may want these pre-painted minis so having them available to buy as individual pieces (sets of 4) would be great in this regard also.

Add the fact that all collectors have different quantities desired. Sets/pieces sold in this manner will allow some collectors to acquire 8 extra and others -24 if they so wish.

That being said, alternately I think the best option would be to have a Furniture II Set consisting of 2 beds and a round table, chairs and a small side table or two. Between that and the complemetary first furniture set, any size of inn could well be furnished.

For a Tavern set, I would prefer a generous mix of the more colourful, unique and substantial items. Of course, one or two of the "bulk" furniture items would be essential, but hopefully the sets would not be "packed-full" with them.
