First DF Game 3 Years, 4 Months ago  
I DMed my first game using Dwarven Forge sets last night. We used DND 4E rules and it worked out well. The game ran 6 hours and the group managed to explore half of the dungeon!

I have been painting fantasy miniatures (most were Ral Partha) since I was around 8 years old but never ran a game. I think between me committing to do this a few months back, reading all of the rules, printing character and monster cards, buying, assembling, and painting 40+ miniatures, I put close to 100 hours of prep time in to this one. I can not imagine doing this with terrain I would have had to construct and paint on my own.

I did not have time to capture pics of the whole game, but here are some of the highlights (reposed before disassembling)

The group comes upon a large room with skeleton soldiers and archers:


From the skeleton archer's perspective:



Cleric fumbles roll to check if door is locked, giant ogre wielding flair appears, hits him in the head throwing the cleric back against the wall:

Birdseye view:





I wish I would have had time to get more pictures, but the set had to be disassembled in order for me to get to sleep! Earlier encounters involved wererats, web covered spider pits, and flaming slime.

Beautiful setup! Looks like a lot of fun! I especially like the images of the higher levels with the windows. :)

Great setup! The use of different levels and the windows in your setup are excellent! I wish you had been able to post more pics. Maybe next time!

Thanks for all of the compliments!

Everything was a flat dungeon up until then, when I pulled back the covering and players saw the big room there was quite an increase in the excitement level.

The ruins set really broadens on what you can do with your layouts. Short of being sold out, there will be another one in my next order.

I have been thinking of better ways to represent dark holes other than construction paper (or something painted black.) My next game I would like to raise the area, and build an actual pit underneath the floor level. Of course, I have lots of ideas and I don't know which ones there will be time for :)
