Thanks for that - good to know. That is far more than I was anticipating! On what passes for the bright side, at least it will be some time in November rather than right now, but still, ouch!

As mentioned before - any help appreciated!!

Cheers

All

Sorry for the negative answer - but it won't happen during the KS.

I'm trying to drive a square peck in a round hole and time was running out with a moving target.

I will have dwarvenite sets available in November and then I can ship from the UK. I won't be able to tell retail prices before the KS has ended.

Thod, many thanks for looking into this.
I realise that KS Does not support international shipping very well at the moment (I feel really sorry for those in Canada !) and the options are simply not there to make this any easier for Stefan / Jeff without exposing the KS to 'incorrect' international shipping.

I will have to stick with just the three painted sets and hope that after all this in November that you can get hold of the 'KS expansion sets' or something close to that. Otherwise I / we (I see others in the same predicament) will loose out on some really great sounding and looking add-ons that we can not afford to buy due to the +$45 shipping hike each time.
E.g - the up and coming 'Dungeon dressing' add-on. I bet that is really light (in comparison). I hope that we can still get to buy that from you in November once you get a great big container of the stuff in the UK.


+Aiddar - That is what i keep telling myself.. October / November is a long time off. I can save to pay for the Duty / Tax by then !!

Cheers for giving us the news, even though its not great. Most companies skirt around bad news its refreshing to be given it up front and honest.

One thing would be good, there has been talk of future kickstarters for other sets, what would the chance of it being sorted for any future kickstarters or is it probably not going to happen with any future ones as well?

I was going to go for 3 x pack and an additions, I think i've changed my mind to a 5 x pack only to try and get the best deal on number of useful pieces.

2 x 3 sets = 200$ shipping
5 sets = 200$ too

The ratio for shipping is a little better for 6 sets.
And if you do it from 2 different accounts you will have a better chance to avoid customs fee

It's a little sad to see DF did not think about that sooner and forgot you.

Yeah I've been weighing up the price difference between 5 and 2x3 sets(around £60). Currently I think its a push to far (you could keep going oh its only £60 more almost forever :P), but we'll see.

It's a shame for us Europeans as we're going to miss out on all the Kickstarter extras - I'm guessing that many have been put off by the ridiculous p+p costs. Still, I'm really glad that its been such a smashing success - it'll hit a million soon I'm sure! Dwarven Forge deserves to do well and I hope Stefan and Geoff make loads of money and stay in the busines for many years to come.

I may buy some of the new stuff when they ship a container over and we can get round the p+p charges issue.

Hi there.

Thanks for confirming the position Thod - good to know clearly what the situation is. That said, I have a sneaking suspicion that there may be more KS's in the future (Caverns perhaps?). Should that happen, any chance of investigating options/working out a way of helping with the shipping? For me at least, time is less important than cost, so happy to accept delays if there is anyway (in the future!) that shipping costs can be reduced.

Woo - apparently I'm a kobold now - cool :-)

Thanks again - I'm in for 3 sets + 4 options. The only saving grace is that my wife does not read these boards... :-)

Cheers

I think the only items I can't guarantee are the tote bag and the Forum icon.

I expect to have everything else on sale. It might be in different numbers / different contents / different configurations but I expect all molds will be used not only for the KS.

But I don't have prices or configurations. I guess the 1 set box will be available without the free KS extras. The add-ons might make sense as they are? But I'm guessing here as much as you do.

I'm not even sure if DF knows before the end of the KS.

And yes - we should be better prepared for a future KS.

I didn't expect the multiple set options. Shipping isn't that cheap for a single set >2kg. But after that it doesn't change much.

Knowing this we should be able to do some specific European tiers next time.

I was also curious in this KS price for the europeans.

I wanted to take 2 sets (painted) to get some bonus so the price would be 95 + 70 postage & package.
Interested in the floor pack & in the furniture set so add 65 + 65 more + 50 & 50 again of postage & package ... a final price of 395$ + VAT (around 20%) and you have reached nearly 500$ ...

I can't support the KS longer sorry even if it was for the local club.
I understand the difficulties for Thod and also th fact DF US cannot handle the different fees depending of each international countries.

So I will wait for regular set releases instead.
