Maybe I'm being a little bit critical but i felt the bookcase should be a little more snug with out the gaps at the top and the side. when its closed you can easly see right through it. after checking how the regular doors are its close to being the norm I guess. Its just the way the gap at the top that bothered me the most. wider at one end than at the other end. so to fix it I took brown felt, cut it to size and glued it.
Not ony has this solved the gap problem but the book case fits more snugly. check the felt thickness before glueing. Don't push on the top of the bookcase to hard like i did as a peice chipped off.

I apreciate the offer. Its not every company CEO that would do this. But since I just broke it by pushing on the edge to hard, I can't honestly send it back.
I was able to glue it back on.
but thankyou.

The pictures do NOT do this set justice. It is absolutely incredible. It just looks *great*. Somehow in the pics on here it looks too stripy and with odd direction-changing floor boards, but in real life what I notice is the incredible richness of the color tones and detail in the pieces, the perfect fit of the pieces and the nice thick walls and perfectly sized doors. And there are a HUGE number of pieces in this set. I've never seen them packed in so efficiently in any previous set. Also there's a lot more variety in the different pieces than there was in the master maze room set for example. It actually looks a lot more sophisticated than the dungeon pieces, which is saying a lot.

I finally got to play with my Medieval Building Sets to build a set up for an actual game for this weekend's use. Looking at the pieces more closely and actually building something with them, I definitely think this set is a step beyond the already good quality of previous sets. The painting, sculpting, quality control, etc. all seem very good. The detail on the pieces is very good. The exactitude of the measurements, resulting in good fit of the pieces with each other, is very good and definitely surpasses the old Master Maze dungeon pieces. In fact, I hope that Dwarven Forge goes back at some point and does some more dungeon sets sometime in the future using the same standards as this set, relying on excellent fit between pieces and avoiding the use of bow-tie connectors. The set looks very nice overall and is very flexible and useful for actual gaming.

One thing I found that was not in the set which would be great to get in the next future expansion is additional alternate door and window pieces. The door piece was very nice and fits very well in the spaces where it is itended to go (and ends up level with adjacent walls for ease of stacking). However, we need Medieval Building half corners and half walls, and we need a Medieval Building "narrow door" like the Narrow Passages Narrow Door piece that can be used with the half corners and half walls so that you can have a door other than towards the middle of a room, in a corner of the room for example. We also need a corner wall with a window on one side. The narrow door is a lot more important, though, because sometimes you need to put a door in a corner, not in the middle of the room.

Again, overall, I think this is a great set. Together with the Lake Set and the River and Walls set, this has been an absolutely incredible year for Dwarven Forge fans.

I definitely agree about Advanced Medieval Building material -- the advantages of those half-corners and half-walls are innumerable. I particularly want to be able to put doors in tight corners.

I'd want the first MBS expansion to be mostly flashy stuff, like fireplaces and railings and things to make the setups "cool," the same way spiral stairs and the mermaid fountain and the secret door upped the ante for the dungeon sets. But maybe 20% of it could be useful basic pieces to expand the types of things you can do with the basic set.

If I may add some items to the list above there would also be:

Stairs -two types: One of a similar type as shown in recent posts and one Df-style set (with a landing).

Pillars: Whether they are stand-alone or built onto floor pices (or both) it doesn't matter. Just something to help support the awesome second-story setups we've seen posted recently, (or to allow for even more elaborate setups).

Space permitting, I would really like to see an assortment of the window pieces/inserts as well.

Beyond these, I really like the fireplace, railing and the half-corner and wall pieces as mentioned previously as well.
