Could someone fill me in on the history and future of the Sci-Fi sets? 5 Years ago  
Hello,

I purchased the bulk of my fantasy sets from ebay or other resellers about five to six
years ago. I didnt know about the SCI-FI sets until this last year when I started
regularly checking DF's site. I guess I kind of missed the boat on the SCI-FI.

I would like to know which sets came out first? which sets have been
discontinued if any? How has the responce been and will there be any future sets?

I think they are really interesting and will probably mix some of the sets in
with my fantasy stuff for the spell jamming Cuthulu worshiping mindflayer
space cult at some point. I would like to see some gamma pieces used in the den of evil !

Any info would be greatly appreciated.....

I may not be the best person to answer this question but I'll try.

From my understanding all sets are available now with the exception of the single wall piece priced at $12.00 (wish I hadn't missed the boat on that one myself)

the first sets released were the starter set (room set), which just received a restock. the hallway/passages set came out at the same time. I bought a set of each when they were originally released I think in 2004 or 2005 I'm not sure. I too stopped paying attention to dwarven forge until recently so I'm not sure in which order the 3 other sets were released although I believe it was the floor set then the passage set with curved sections and finally the set with the control panels and chairs, but I'm kind of guessing a bit there.

I'm not sure what the future holds for the sci fi line but from what I've read here on this forum the sci fi line doesn't sell as well as the other Dwarven forge product. but they released the starter set so the line is definitely alive and well. I just placed a order today for some sci fi pieces and some hellscape sets.

I believe I read on here that other sci fi pieces have been made but haven't been released.

That's pretty much all I know if there are new set to be released in the near future I'd like to know too.

Please buy as many Sci-Fi sets as possible....extra large purchases will be rewarded...call Jeff and he may give you a great deal depending on the Set and how much backlog we have...

The Sci-Fi line is our slowest selling line...nevertheless we decided to restock the basic starter room sets on faith that we would eventually sell out the rest and possibly......even release another new Set.

We welcome new Sci-Fi customers like You!

The Sci-Fi sets are what got me to buy a DF set instead of just the accesories.
They have been out for a few years, and came out before DF went to selling online, I got my first 4 sets at my FLGS, the week they released (2 Room and 2 passage), I had only bought 1 of each, but went back latter and bought one more of each.

Last night I was organizing some of my DF, and I have about 10 of each now of Rooms, Passages, Alpha, Gamma and five Beta,
(HINT BUY GAMMA NOW AS IT WILL NOT BE RESTOCKED likely EVER, and it has great accesories!).

I unfortunitly have likely Everything i need currently for the exsisting sets as I can cover the table I own, and the gamming table we palyed it in Sci-Fi alone, So while I'd like to buy more I just don't have any "need" for it....

There are somethings I'd like to see an advanced builder and AB2 for sci-fi, but Untill then, I can't really justify more Sci-Fi even thoguh I would like to get some, but I know I'm odd (or maybe not that odd) in that new product makes me look at old product and go oh, with this new bit if I had a few more X i could do This.... So maybe new product will help move the old...

My plan is to buy a bunch of the sci fi stuff this coming year. I just placed a big order, (a big order for me at least) I'll pick up a set or two as I can afford it. the goal is to fill a space of 4 feet by 6 feet and I'm just under 1/2 way there now.

Ghenghis Ska, thanks for the tip. I have one of those sets already and another one is on the way. I might have to pick up another one with my next order. I wonder if Gamma will still be in stock by the time I place my next order.

Stefan Is there any chance that you could let us know if any of the sci fi sets are low stock?

I've been using Beta and the accessories for my Dark Heresy campaign, mixed with Den of Evil, for that 40k feel. I just ordered Alpha and the rooms for my upcoming Rogue Trader campaign.

If you do another SF set, I'd like one with a dark feel to it. More gritty and less clean.

Lol

Stefan,

I bought my first science fi set this week.
It's the set n°5, the accessories.
It will give me a idea of this line.
I wait for the package...
If I'm pleased with it, I will buy the 4 other sets and may be one or 2 room basic sets to get a huge modularity into the future space ship I will use (for DOOM SPACE CRUSADE - you never had this game in the usa sad - and space hulk & resident evil too)

I'll be glad to get a reward lol
