Kicktraq, and a Thank You 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
First off, for those who don't frequent Kicktraq, I thought I'd leave this here to easily see:



See that tiny blue line at the bottom?
That was the goal Stefan and Jeff thought we would struggle to reach.

See that blue line arcing way above that?
That's how awesome the Dwarven Forge customers are.

So I'd also like to say thank you to my fellow fans, regardless of if you've been using Dwarven Forge since the bow-tie era, or if you are eagerly awaiting your first Game Tiles terrain.

And I'd also like to thank Jeff, Stefan, Thod, and the whole DF team for all their hard work, and for keeping the dream alive. I recently got a friendly message from Jeff, and while it was simple and short, it helped remind me that this isn't some huge business that has it down to a science. This is just a group of guys who spend a lot of time on the forums, responding to our complaints, and are as big of fans of their product as we are.

My guess for the KS is now....*drumroll*...$1,000,603


@Jeff what did you originally think was your highest guess of dollars you would raise?

@Stefan How about you?

My plan was to match Reaper's success...

but I am humbled and amazed at how it's going...I am not sure how much I really believed it was possible, there were moments of doubt of course, but we have a great team in place, always have...

I dream big, so I wanted and still want to believe, but I would be happy if we ended today and would consider it a smashing success...

The night before the launch I couldn't sleep, i thought about worse case scenarios, I didn't want these 17 years to come to an end...and now I know they won't...

I want to thank Reaper for helping us, they are a great bunch of guys, especially Ed Pugh who has always been willing to trade his services for Dwarven Forge stuff!

and to ALL the other companies out there who are actually rooting for us...it's really moving:)

And to the FANS! The Collectors who have really been our troops in the trenches!

I believe we can make it to doubling the offer sizes...that's all that matters, and when we do i expect to see a big boost, both here and internationally...I mean, the deal at that point would be awesome, it would actually be painful to miss it at that point...

We are going to do everything we can to make everyone happy while still being smart and not giving away the store foolishly...

wait and see, it's going to be a fun last week!

1.7 million

I believe...

@Stefan

I know many of the gamers at the gaming store I hang out at have always wanted to get Dwarven Forge but as you mentioned in your video it has been primarily a cost issue. I think once thats reduced a bit (like with this kickstarter) I had little doubt that it would succeed. Over the last several days I have spoke to many friends about it being cheap enough that they can use the unpainted sets for other things that are not based on mini games using the 1 inch system like AD&D.

Though I know many mentioned they would love to see futuristic or other sets but I think many that I know were more excited about the fact that the sets were unpainted also as we have quite a few painters at our gaming shop and it allows them to make it their own creation as well.

Either or I am glad the kickstarter happened as it allows me to get enough to fill out my current sets a bit more easily.

Stefan, anytime you're unsure of yourself or your product, I want you to open up this thread, look at my top post, and look at that chart up there.

Look at the bottom blue line, and then look at the top line.

You make the best product on the market, and we will continue to support you as long as you want to do this.

Congratulations!

Stefan and Jeff you guys have done it!! The masses have DF tiles and man they are more affordable then ever. I want to thank you for doing this I am unsure I would have ever been able to expand my set like this without your KS and I still will be able to grab some of your stuff at the next restocking. Thank you for the email it truly is a blessing to support you and your company I pray that your new found blessing feeds from the company into your lives and your families lives.

It has been a very fun and exciting month. I will miss the KS but hope to help others enjoy the Game!

Blessings
