ALL TIME BEST YOU ROCK THE FREE WORLD SETUP!!!! 2 Years, 10 Months ago  
Hello All,

Through the years I have appreciated everyone posting their setups. Most of them I have posted how much I like them based on a completely arbitrary scale I call the YOU ROCK THE FREE WORLD!!!! Well I have finally seen the best of all time setup using my favorite 3 miniature terrain sets; Dwarven Forge, MBA, and Terrainscapes. I believe I have enough pieces to do this setup plus some. I am only missing the hirst arts tower and some of the foliage. I plan to start next week and home to have it finished with a video on youtube by mid-march. I of course will feature more of the DF items I have. I plan on having a druid grove in the village and a few secret passages to an underground dungeon or two. Anyway with no further delay I present to you the best setup I have ever seen.

It is indeed superb! I'm eager to see your version. I might even rate it... ;-) Where did you originally saw that setup? It looks a lot like what Sorn showed us a few months ago.

I saw it at the RPG club at Rice University. There are a lot of folks who game there and are on this forum. Someone mentioned that they were inspired by a picture they had seen on a forum but they could not remember which one. He made the remark that he even liked the fact that the grass mat was marked off with 1 inch blocks. Looking at Sorn's photos they are almost identical. Now I know his inspiration. I guess I will be the 3rd or more person to be "inspired" :-)

2 things:
1. That set-up is absolutely stunning.
2. Shadox- this whole "Rock the Free World" thing- are you a big Neil Young fan? I gotta ask, because everytime you "award" someone, I get that song stuck in my head for HOURS...and I'm not even a fan of his.

Make something idiot-proof and someone will just turn around and make a better idiot.

Granpappy,

I like some of Neil's work but to be truthful the origin of the scale does not come from that song. It comes from a speech that I heard from President Reagan when I was a younger man and becoming aware of politics. It is to date the only presidential speech I have heard in person. I will try to find a link to his speech and post it. It moved me to say the least.

The Neil Young song was a sardonic song about Reagan's legacy - mocking that very phrase.

AWESOME SET UP!!

I AM TRYING TO TALK THE BIG MAN INTO DOING A CASTLE/FORTRESS/TEMPLE...BUT COST IS A FACTOR. "If you build it, he will come"...OR START A PETITION...THAT'S UP TO YOU ALL.

MAYBE DO IT IN INTERLOCKING SECTIONS SO IT CAN BE PURCHASED IN SETS. WHAT DO YOU THINK? WHAT'S A GOOD PRICE FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS? I WONDER IF IT COULD BE DONE FOR UNDER $300-$500? IT WOULD BE A SHAME TO MAKE SOMETHING THIS AWESOME BUT THEN IT'S NOT AFFORDABLE.

ANY IDEAS??

At a very small run of sets (say only 500 or so)...even at a VERY high Price (say $1000) it would sell!!!

I thought it was Sorn's setup as well. It certainly is amazing and beautiful to look at. I can only imagine how cool it must look in person.
