TOPIC: Dwarven Forge Reaches NZ

Dwarven Forge Reaches NZ 11 Months, 1 Week ago  
My Dwarven Forge tiles arrived on Friday after having made it via a shipping forwarder to NZ.

Must say I am very impressed. Would lie to see some intersections in futures and am still sorting out how best to configure corridors but thin they will add a new dimension to our role-playing games.

I've given them a quick drybrush of a dark grey followed by a light grey to get them table ready and although I've still plenty to do I am happy with how they are turning out so far.





Cheers

Nice. Good to see DF in NZ.
I got mine sent to relatives in the states, to avoid NZ customs and reduce cost of postage.

Now kicking myself, as I got my fedex email today ... and I wont get hands on them until next year.

I got them sent to the NZ Post forwarding address, postage was still not cheap but managed to avoid GST (had my fingers crossed on that one). I put two orders in, to avoid one big customs bill so am now awaiting the other half of the order.

Three sets + rewards now done- still lots of details (eg finishing off doors) to do but the basic paint job is done to a passable standard for gaming.

What can I say except there was a lot more with the rewards than I was expecting!

What brand of paints and what paint colors did you use for this gray paint scheme? It sounds like you did not do a base-coat, but just two drybrushes right?

Yes, I simply drybrushed straight over the tiles without an undercoat. I simply used 250ml test pots of interior house paint (as I do for all my bases & terrain) from the local DIY store- extremely cheap, and effective. I simply used a dark grey and then a very light grey.
