TOPIC: Updates on Restocking
#55492
Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 1 Month ago  
I really hope they restock the resin before doing the next Kickstarter. I can't imagine it would be good for business to have an empty store for over a year where there was only a two month window where you were able to order product. I had planned on ordering some of the resin parts after the kickstarter (obviously a foolish decision in hindsight)but I wanted to see what was going to become available during it before placing my order so my stuff wouldn't overlap, and sadly by the end of the kickstarter the store was basically empty.

My hope is they put an order in as soon as everything ships for this kickstarter and that stuff can come into stock while the next kickstarter is going on.

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 1 Month ago  
We have no intention of dropping the Resin lines...they are good for making runs of 1000-3000 Sets and provide better detail, they are, in my opinion, more beautiful, they are the Rolls Royce, the Ferrari of terrain possibility....but they are less durable and need to be cared for, just like the Rolls Royce's....Game Tiles are the cars you drive on a daily basis, you don't need to worry about them getting banged up, they are like bumper cars!
each has it's place, and I hope to continue with both for many years....

one issue we have with resin however is the amount of time it takes to manufacture them...it now takes about 6-8 months! So we are looking at Resin coming back in stock around March....if there is anything we can do to speed this up we will certainly try, we are just as unhappy as everyone else...please also note that we use different factories for these two types of production so one does not affect the other in case you might speculate that a Cavern Kickstarter might push back the resin restock...

Cavern kickstarter:
After talking with the factories, it seems that the best way to go will be a 2" x 2" footprint for Cavern Pieces...otherwise we will not get significant cost savings...I WILL be using multiple sculptures for walls and corners so there will be much variety...i will use all my skills and experience, working with the talented Casey (catacombs) to make this an awesome Cavern utilizing the 2" x 2" footprint to it's best advantages, and it does have some advantages over 4' x 4" it can make small configurations and more closely match excisting modules for this reason...thanks for all the great suggestions! we WILL be restocking the regular Cavern Set in Resin but probably not until after the Kickstarter Cavern Dwarvenite one....sorry! They WILL be compatible with one another so I am sure many of you cavern lovers will want both versions...i know i will...

I am sorry for the delays! The reality is that until we finally ship everything out from the kickstarter we really don't know where we stand in terms of money left over...we must be careful not to over extend ourselves...many a good company has gone bankrupt that way....we must survive...we must endure....

Glad to hear that Caverns (Dwarvenite) will be 2x2. I think this will be awesome and work well with the 2x2 Game Tiles and 2x2 Sewers (3rd Kickstarter). I also believe 2x2 will be a lot more flexible!

Thanks, stefan.

Good to know the situation.

Dwarvinite cavern plans sound great. I have great confidence in your ability to amaze us all.

Will dwarvinite passages be included in the plan?

Thanks for the update Stefan.

If there is no resin re-stock until March 2014 (ack, nothing for the holidays???) then I humbly suggest you not end the next Kickstarter until AFTER the re-stock is scheduled to be in warehouse.

Just my 2cp....

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 1 Month ago  
Does the March estimate for a resin restock apply to Catacombs II as well?

And yeah, 2x2 Dwarvenite Caverns makes sense. It fits with the rest of the Dwarvenite line and should offer a little extra versatility in layout. (Although I do hope something akin to the 4x6 floors shows up somewhere as a stretch goal.) Hope we can get some sneak peaks before the year's out!

I think you and Casey need to imbibe many tasty beverages! And accidentally, when Jeff is not looking, release a few teasers of said Catacombs II set!

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 1 Month ago  
VERY pleased with this update!

Any resin restock is welcome. Although I personally would like to see MasterMaze dungeon resin sets, this might be a good time to highlight the limited edition sets. I think MBS should also be represented, since it is so different from all of the other lines.

We don't need every single detail of DF's business plans (especially since it seems like there might be rivalry and intrigue afoot, which I would love to hear about someday), but reading about a coming restock at the same time as the second kickstarter announcement would have headed off a lot of concern and speculation.

Re:Updates on Restocking 1 Year, 1 Month ago  
Overall great news. Curious though I am wondering if the caverns gametiles might have any water tiles or will we just have to wait for the restock?

i know there was a question of whether or not it could be pulled off using the dwarvenite.

thanks
