I will join the people who are impressed by how much all this must have cost, but I also want to add -- how much time did it take to flock all those tree bases?!?! And even if they came flocked, to put them in place? Are they glued down? Because if not, I can only imagine there being instances where you'd accidentally knock one down and a whole bunch would end up falling. And then you'd want to punch something.

Thanks for the kind compliments. As for how much it costs, I bought it over a fairly long period of time and have never added it up... I love MBA and DF, because both are high quality products that go well together. On that note, I have been working on a decent-sized city for awhile now and will have to post the pics when I am done. I hope to make it the central city of my campaign. Unfortunately, however, it is a fairly long undertaking, so it may be a few more months before I complete it.

As I mentioned before, at least 50% of my fun in my gaming is building these dioramas. The other 50% is actually playing the game on the dioramas.

However, if you were to add up all of my time dedicated to my hobby, the ratio of setting up dioramas to actually playing a game would be about 3:1 to 5:1. That is, on average, I probably spend 3-5 hours putting together the dioramas for each 1 hour of game time. Luckily, I enjoy putting together the dioramas. My players also appreciate the effort. Unfortunately, I usually only play once every 1-2 months due to time and work commitments, but at least my players are really excited when we do have a gaming session. I am eagerly looking forward to seeing the look on their faces when I open the door to the room that has this castle in it. Your kind compliments clearly indicate to me that they will be very satisfied with the setup.

Looks awesome!

Did you make those trees or did you buy them somewhere online?

Incredible, and makes my setups looks pedestrian. :)

Thanks, Stefan. I was just watching you in the following youtube video:



From the video, it is clear that you are a great story teller with a vivid imagination, and, hence, an outstanding DM. If only you were in Virginia! I would absolutely love to be in a campaign run by you. I would be more than happy to give you access to my large MBA collection to assemble cities/towns/castles as you see fit. You could also use my rather large DF collection (which is a bit over 110 sets now). Of course, I suspect your collection (being the CEO of Dwarven Forge) is even larger.

Now it is I that is dreaming! :)

What a great set up ... ... is definitely the envy of most of our players. By this way, I love Leopard carpet too!
