RotA Sets Should Ship Monday! 5 Years, 8 Months ago  
So I see your message Jeff about the bushes and I am just settling down to sleep and my wife says, "They wouldn't have left it at the end of the drive way would they?" I knew it was going to get much colder tonight so I thought I better check.

So, get on heavy winter gear (-30 F) trek the +350 meters to the mail box and there is the big box sitting in the snow. I didn't bring a sled so I had to carry it all the way back, did I mention that the wind was blowing and the snow was drifting?

I mean seriously!

I let them warm up for a half hour then inspected them. Very very nice. More comments in the proper forum below.

It was UPS not you guys. They have delivered MM sets before without a hitch. I think it was the storm.

It was worth the trek. Definately.

Found my giant box on my porch when I got home a few minutes before midnight. Now I'm gonna go open my first DF purchase ! I can quit anytime I want, HONEST.

Daggerdale, Did your UPS REALLY just drop it in the snow and leave ?? Did they at least put it in a huge plastic bag or something to protect it from the damp ??

Gotta admit, I am impressed with RotA. I really like the understated colors, and the fit and finish are just excellent. The colored tile floor on the 'extra' room piece is very nicely done. Those floors will be much more difficult to paint up well than I had anticipated.

Stephan, could you possibly post the tile floor color schemes which you tried and liked, for the edification of folks who want to paint additional versions ?? Sort of a 'piint by the numbers' scheme would be great, but simply direct-overhead photos would work as well.

I'd LOVE painting suggestions! I can really see myself grabbing sets just to paint them up....

Sort of a 'piint by the numbers' ..

:D Sounds like a great Pub Game :D


OK, back on topic ... photo references of the original schemes would be great.

Thanks DF! Another great product! Too bad I don't get to game too much, but I had fun taking it out of the boxes and seeing what setup I could do with just one of the sets and the bonus intersection. The paint job is just as excellent as the sculpting! Too bad you couldn't make bigger "rooms" for the intersections pieces...

If they placed the package in a bag the storm blew it away. Also, putting it in the snow at these temperatures is not a bog deal. The snow is dry as can be.
