TOPIC: What do we WANT to see happen next?

What do we WANT to see happen next? 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
So -- there has been some talk of what people think is going to happen now. But what do we WANT to happen next?

Should DF expand the KS line without launching another KS? In other words, should there be pieces made with this style of wall -- call it the "Castle set" for lack of a better term -- and do it cast in Dwarvenite, but sold just on the DF website without another KS campaign? There are a ton of ways to expand this new setting -- Wicked Additions style accessories like the demon archway or the mermaid fountain or the spiral stairs, not to mention ruins and so on. Or there could be entirely new, never-before-seen style things done in this "castle" style. Maybe accessories that make it easier to make our own modular castles out of the KS line?

Or maybe should DF just release the entire KS lineup in its classic resin design before expanding? Or maybe a compromise, do only new pieces in resin but not re-issue the KS pieces, so that the backers have something a little more unique?

Or should DF just walk away from this for a little, concentrate on other sets (like a sewer set!) and maybe in a year or so do another KS and expand this Castle setting that way? Maybe leave the Castle set so that it's always a KS-only thing?



Any preferences?

I have gamed for some time, D&D, warhammer, warhammer 40k, Lord of the rings and such. I think a kickstarter in other genres, if you will, would help to expand the company. I would like to see warhammer 40k supported ranges. With the new edition 40k does have kill team rules for smaller games. From what I have seen 40k is the strongest of games workshop's line and I know a lot of people, including myself that would love to see terrain like this.

Personally I'm hoping for a Caverns Kick Starter. Would also love to see the 2x6 dungeon entrance that was mentioned at the end of the last kick starter.
a 40k sci fi space ship set would be a dream come true too. launch each line on kick starter and only one per year. :)
That way every year I can buy some new stuff :)

First: A dungeon halls Kickstarter. First because we already know Stefan is working on them, and Kickstarter because of the potential for bulk discounting. (Probably a smaller Kickstarter than the one that just ended, though.)

Second: Caverns Kickstarter. Because Stefan's caverns are the awesomest things, ever, in prefab game terrain - but too expensive for me.

Re:What do we WANT to see happen next? 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
While caverns would be nice, I am going to be happy to see what DF post up of Dwarvenite products. with greater durability and lower cost, I want to a chance to use what I will get from the KS and play with the add-on pack that I didn't order.

I would like to see a the ability to buy individual pieces in a "grab Bag" fashion.

But in the future, of course I would like to have Caverns. but no KS for at least a year so I can save up. Used up a fair amount of my "fun" account on the recent KS.

Very excited about October.

0. Take a deep, cleansing breath. Toast your success. Get some sleep.

1. Resolve the kickstarter. Sculpt, make molds, get the production run going.

2. Restock. Put Catacombs 2 up. Sell some resin.

3. Put the new line on the website. Both websites. Get some traction in Europe.

4. Pre-plan the next kickstarter. Have your stretch goal items planned out in advance. It's okay to repeat some items later in the kickstarter, and you can pick which ones when you get some feedback on which are most in demand. You can also figure out how to space the stretch goals once you have a feel for how it's going.

Re:What do we WANT to see happen next? 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
I agree with 'sleep' and then Resin restocks + a new Catacombs 2 for later this year.

Roofs;
Dwarvenite will be perfect to make roofs. Single piece painted 4 x 4, 4 x 6, 6 x 6, 6 x 8 etc.
Tiles, straw, thatch, slate etc.. Great big 'viking long house ones' as well as options to add an angled section to then make an 'L' shape building. We got Doors, We now got windows. Lets get Roofs!
I want to pop a lid onto of some of the Game Tiles when I use these for outside / surface dwellings.
I can then keep my Resin range for dungeons as now and Game Tiles for surface.
...That is until the Corridors are available anyway:

Corridors:
Are we all not forgetting that we will soon need Corridors for our Game Tiles !??
I want to see the L's T's and +'s in all their new glory.
I suggest a Corridor range. Without the need to do a 'Room and Corridor' as most will be stocked up fully with 'room tiles' now.

Doors:
(Did I mention that I like doors)...
Lets see that $2.0m goal we never saw... great big double door entrance for a Castle / Keep / Monastery.
In fact, lets have 3 different double door entrances please in a pack!
:)

Notice period:
Next time IF it is a KS.... I need more notice. I need to KNOW to save and fill the freezer with food for the long 'starve' afterwards... 3 months notice and don't say "A Secret in 3 months" say - "in 3 months you will want some ready money". or be blunt & say "Another great big KS coming your way!".

Other:
But I would buy a gold miners tunnel set (wooden effect sides and supports) also a Pyramid / sand stone block option. (Some painted hieroglyphs etc) think Realm of the Ancients meets 'Desert of Desolation". Sewers. We need a sewer complex! One that can be used mixed in with the Catacombs set/if possible....

But really whatever. Stefan knows us all pretty good. He is after all a DM.
Our DM ;)
:D

Interesting interesting! I'm not sure if you know, but DF did experiment with a Sci-Fi setting, years ago, and sadly, it did not sell well. They released some sets that, IMO, were absolutely amazing -- large floor pieces that had removable panels with all sorts of funky stuff underneath them, cool monitors, great modular computer console banks, and so on. There was a lot of talk about why the sets didn't take off. Maybe with sci-fi, unlike fantasy, it is harder to find a "generic" or "universal" basic set -- with fantasy you can have a dungeon set that can be used for almost anything, but sci-fi has things like spaceships and stations and most importantly there's a ton of diversity in terms of "grimy distopia" or "streamlined Flash Gordon" and everything in between. You have people who just want something for their 40K games, which has a very specific look, and people who wanted it for SW minis, and wanted stuff that looked right for SW. It was just harder, maybe, to make sets that seemed to work for EVERYONE. And then you have places like Hirst Arts making sci-fi molds that were really popular. It just never clicked for some reason.

But maybe the KS is the solution. Since Dwarevenite doesn't take to the kind of super-detail we like to see in our caverns and limited edition sets, but WOULD work for some sci-fi sets -- and since one of the chief complaints about DF has always been price but the KS approach is designed to keep the price down -- well.... maybe the Sci-fi idea could be revisted? 40K is as popular as ever, and like you say, a lot of 40K gamers might like this stuff.

Hm. It's something to consider...

Stefan creates a time ship out of Dwarvenite so we can all (all 5000+ of us) travel to October 2013...NOW! He is a high-level Wizard. Certainly Time Travel is in his list of Available Spells!

This.


Also, like many, I would love for them to launch a Dwarvenite Cavern Kickstarter. But not until after my wallet has had a chance to recover. Like many of you I rather blew the budget out of the water on this one.

A heads up well in advance of the next Kickstarter would be great, so I have time to save up my money, sell my car and set up a reverse mortgage on my house.

at the beginning of the KS i also mentioned in a post the the medieval building sets would lend themselves VERY well to dwarventite and the mold size since theyre pretty much the same tiles just with a different skin and since places like miniature building authority and anyone else who offers to scale buildings for fantasy setting are super expensive who wouldnt want 5 or so sets of that? MEGA INN!!!
