I was thinking the same thing, Stefan.
What's really scary is I'm afraid (ultimately) the ones who will end up losing will be the backers.
I certainly hope I'm wrong and perhaps I don't understand how things work.

I am not worried about the other kickstarter. The only thing that's different from other companies that have been selling pre-cast HA products (for years now) is pre-painting and price. If he is treating the kickstarter as a loss leader to drum up business prior to setting his prices at profitable levels, then the market will respond appropriately.

Torrington's complaint about DF prices is nothing new, either, and seems to be directed solely at resin pieces and sets. As such, it might be better placed in a different section of the forum, and might have been phrased better ("so glad to see DF making a discount line, I just can't afford the resin products"). It was years before my finances allowed me to start indulging in The Addiction, but I recognized that this was a by-fans-for-fans product, and I knew that the prices were representative of production costs and product quality.

+1 to Jackattack. My situation exactly. there are less expensive roleplaying alternatives but nothing that truly compares in quality or flexibility.

Funny thing is, if you really look at the different products available in the 3D terrain market, the prices here at DF really aren't that expensive. Take the cost of a large kit of modular buildings from GW, add in the cost of paying someone else to build and paint them, and then compare the necessary storage space and in the end DF starts to look really good. Especially since DF isn't genre or setting specific like so many other offerings.

Unless I missed something, they have only said that it will likely cost a bit more than it did in the KS. Likely they have to play with some numbers and decide on how big a stock order they will place to determine the price.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

Cheaper than:

$55 for a Dungeon Grey Set, and $45 for a Dungeon Grey Pack?
$85 for a Deluxe Painted Set, and $70 for a Deluxe Painted Pack?

$43 per Dungeon Grey Set when you buy 5?
$33.33 per Dungeon Grey Pack when you buy 3?
$67 per Deluxe Painted Set when you buy 5?
$45 per Deluxe Painted Pack when you buy 3?

Cheaper than free shipping on orders over $100?


I'm thinking probably not. Those are pre-order prices, which in my experience (with DF and other suppliers) are usually a little less than the final price.


Note that these numbers are derived from a blurry, shaky video, so might be wrong. I do not work for Dwarven Forge, so any error on my part is not binding on them, and if there is an error I apologize in advance.
