Stefan,

All props to yansolo, he's a goodguy, but the reason why I buy DF-type stuff from him is because I'm too darned lazy to make it myself and you guys DON'T make it!
DF makes it, I'll buy it from you (if I don't already have it - and as you know from m ysci-fi walls, sometimes even then I'll buy yours because they're BETTER!)!
Stefan, I will ALWAYS support DF products, because when we stop supporting you, you go out of business and we lose a vital (inter)national asset! Thod is a good guy, yansolo is a good guy, Tony Griffon is a good guy (he designed the sci-fi line for you!), crioux is a good guy; but they are NOT Dwarven Forge! Without the basic DF line to work from, they are add-on goodies (often VERY goodies, guys!) that LOOK GREAT, but don't have an underlying tie-in support. DF is the unifying foundation for their work. We HAVE to keep you in business!

I would HATE to drive ANY of these wonderful, inspired (and inspiring!) designers out of the market. Tony Griffon's work in the sci-fi area has given us the entire DF sci-fi line, and added his own accessories; crioux developed his roof system when NO-ONE thought it could be don, so he went ahead and did it anyway - and it works! yansolo gave us an entirely NEW area with his electronics to actually light up the dungeons (and make Eveready and Duracell richer than ever!). And Thod, with the Ice Worlds; what can I say - and then he drags Omar and his rugs into it, too!

All great additions to the DF line. Keep on keeping on, Stefan.

Now build me some lights!

Stefan,
I'll put my hands up for a set with twinkling lights.

Not sure about more torches as I've picked some up from yansolo already, but I'm sure you'd be able to use the technology in other more interesting ways as well.

My question, for everyone using the LEDs though is how long would they last? I assume they have a finite life span due to a limited battery life?

man,
I'm really happy to inspire the great Dwarven Forge, like other did before, Kratzer told about them.

To answer Lupus, a Battery for LED can last really really really long time(100hours min), when it's a cr2032, the ones i use.

Merry Christmas everybody and may the force be with you,
solo.

That's awesome...O.K. How many of you guys would be interested in buying torch lit walls? Twinkling Altars? We are thinking about doing something now that the technology is really there...
LOL... Your " Preaching to the choir " Stefan..... Just about everyone on here would pretty much be interested in anything sculpted by you. Just a few thoughts,,, maybe a stove " for the INN that has a bit of blinking from the oven or a top burner? Console for Scifi??? Crystals blinking for the cavern???? Make the batteries easy to replace and something you can get easily from Walgreen's or E'vil Mart?

I'd probably buy it, though I'd prefer a WA3 set that had new doors, hallways with door spaces in the middle, prison bar walls, new alcoves, etc

While a cool idea, I'd prefer other items take precedence before "novelty" pieces.

I'm talking about the oft-asked-for sewer set, dungeon door set, more wicked additions as well as some flooded dungeon pieces, new dungeon accessories like torture rooms, prison cells, etc. just to name a few off the top of my head.

And I haven't even mentioned the much needed and begged-for Sci Fi Expansions and Accessories. Now THAT genre would be SWEET with lights !!!!!

That being said, I'll take whatever DF puts out, I just have preferences in the order of things.

Sewer set w/LED torches;
WA3 w/LED Torches;
Sci-Fi WA/Accessories w/Lighted Accessories;
Tavern Set w/FIREplace/Stove or LED & FIBER-OPTIC CANDLE (How's THAT for ADVANCED GOODIES, Stefan?)

You should NEVER have inspired me, man! NOW look at what you've started! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Fiber optic Candle.....Hummmmmmm. Just make the batt's last long, standard " no real expensive one's that can only be got in Madagascar or some such place " and easy to change out.
