Man, that thing looks AWESOME.

And -- seriously -- kudos to Stefan and the whole DF team for listening to the fans and deciding that sets should be designed for maximum "re-purchase" power. What we in the toy collecting hobby call "army buiding"!

It's good business sense -- it's a disincentive for me to buy 5 or 6 of a set if I know that 20% of what I get is going to be wasted, highly specific unique pieces that I resent having to spend money on because I know they won't be used more than once.

Giving us a spectacular gate like this as a separate purchase makes it easier to justify grabbing 3 or 4 of the new set right off the bat, knowing that just about every multiple of a single design is going to be useful.

PLUS -- for the true OCD collector like me -- I like the idea of grabbing a single extra gate just to keep sealed. It's a nice conversation piece, it means I know I always have on in pristine condition, it's insurance in case mine breaks and the website is out of stock. I like grabbing that one extra piece, and it's cumbersome to buy a whole extra set for it. And even if I did that, knowing that the set has been opened removes a great deal of the appeal of getting the single item: now it isn't sealed anymore, it's been opened which means risking that it gets damaged somehow, it's harder to store because I have this huge box for it, etc.

I'm really excited to hear that DF is at least occasionally going to shy away from sets that mix up unique elements with common, multiple "army builder" core pieces.

Thanks for the comments....hopefully we will have full product shots coming soon. This hellgate project was a lot of fun and "hell" at the same time....really pushed the boundaries and learned a lot about drawbridge engineering and other cool stuff that inspired/informed many more product concepts. There is a lot of information packed into this 4x4" square...a rewarding challenge. I try to make things that will evoke emotion in the player's experience in terms of visual impact and "playability"....unleash creativity and imagination. It's a real compliment to have folks take interest in collecting the pieces. I admit that I to have an urge to collect...I like to display them as miniature sculptures...I currently have a prototype catacombs set and hellgate on display in my studio....I can't stop looking and gazing....they are enchanting and wondrous. Now if I could only get Stefan to hook me up with a caverns set ROTA layout....but I understand that these are in high demand.

"They are enchanting and wondrous" (quoted from EskridgeSculpture's post)

And this is why I love you guys here in the DF forums. You have the same sense of wonder and excitement that I do when I build, stare at and game with a beautifully laid out diorama. Not everyone is like us. Many stare at such things wondering what would make a grown man spend so much effort putting together something like this. They just don't understand.

If only I had the tremendous artistic ability of Stefan and EskridgeSculpture to create these beautiful pieces of art myself. Instead, I can only be a patron of the arts, purchasing or commissioning the beautiful work these artists and others produce.

Looks awesome!

Will it be compatible with a normal caverns set layout? i.e. its not just for Hellscape?

This would be an awesome piece to make a caverns chasm and drawbridge layout with!

Thank you Sorn! We appreciate your patronage! Without which none of these pieces would have happened! So we are very grateful:)
