IFYI however, the shipping is a bit slow due to overseas and his economical shipping method. But definitely worth the wait!
For just $58 including shipping, I picked up the set of two wooden docks, the stone bridge, and the stable building (with removable roof!). Totally amazing pricing. He may find himself backlogged with orders soon!


I wouldn't exactly call it "economical shipping" -- the shipping price to the U.S. doubles the total price of the pieces. I better understand the pain of European collectors of DF! That being said the total price (around $200 with shipping included) still seems like a good buy for seven fully painted town buildings.

I'll put up some pix when my pieces come in.

Arcarius, thanks again for the great tip on this seller.

He replied to my email. He will provide roofs through ebay as private Buy It Now listings provided you tell him what size you want, quantity, etc. Just email him back through your invoice he sent you. I look forward to the pics of all our new buildings combined with our Dwarven Forge!

Did he say if he is able to make sizes that are more directly compatible with DF (4x6in, 6x6in, etc.) or more simply single roofs from his existing building line? It sounded like his existing roof molds are a little short of the 2inch DF increments.

I specifically asked for roofs scaled in inches. But I am not sure if he is going to make new ones or just match up what he has that will work.

Well, the new set of buildings is up. I am bidding on the 'two' blue roofed inn and two sets of piers.

I still owe people the measurements on the roofs I got, but ,'Yes', several of them are inconvenient sizes. For example, the small roofs are 3.8" x 3.8". It is better than a dungeon tile but it does not look awesome. It does hide the people hiding inside.

I measured my old buildings from PMC Games. These are a year or so old but the pictures look the same.

Small Shed - 3/58" x 3 5/8"
House Wood - 3 1/2" x 4 3/8"
Old Mill - 4" x 5"
Blacksmith - 3 1/2" x 6 3/8"

Awesome! I'm glad these are shorter auctions so the waiting and anxiety isn't too harsh. lol I'm going to have to hold out on this batch, though. For future reference, my eyes are on the blacksmith, the tannery barn, the early medieval church, the barrels, the log barricades, the wooden crates, the big brown ship (that would be so great to have), and a couple other simple cottages/buildings.

I keep viewing my 'recent purchases' to look at the pictures. I can't wait till they get here.

Arcarius, do you know if the seller ever came through with single roof auctions? He didn't return a couple of inquiry emails from me.

Also, how long did it take to receive your pieces the first time you ordered? I'm waiting on the buildings I purchased.

I have yet to get back with him about the roofs. He did say he would be willing to set up private listings though.
It took about a month for it to arrive. I believe he builds them then ships as I see the same pics on all his listings. However my items were identical to the pics as far as I can tell. I have ordered twice more from him and still waiting on those. If you message him he can tell you when they shipped.

Thanks Arcarius -- good to know he's been reliable in the past. Always hard to wait for new toys!
