Is there any interest in a set of DF quality wooden pieces/components that could be assembled/glued into various pieces?

Items could include, (but not restricted to):

Planks (thinner)
Plank sections
Beams and supports
Posts
Odd-shaped flooring
Signs etc.

These could used for assembling scaffolding, railings, drawbridges, mine sections or a number of other things.

I would buy multiples of such a set myself, but I may be the only one interested.

WW -

To be honest, I don't think you're going to get much going for a 'DF Kit' set. It would be too much like Stefan doing a Hirst Arts ripoff - which DF is never going to do. Remember, DF is specialized in "Ready-To-Play" gaming terrain and scenery.
And, in a way, I kind of wish they would do something like what you suggested, if only because it would be so much easier to do signs and stuff if they were preassembled and painted; then I could just design a paper label with the graphics I wanted for the sign and print it out. using an Avery-type label to print the sign, I could do a sheet of goodies and print it, then stick 'em on as needed.
But, that's not likely from DF.

See ya!

"Beams and supports" fall under the category of "columns", so I think we will see those at some point. Not only would they significantly aid in stacking (for those so inclined), they would also break up the space in a room and offer cover and concealment for fighters and thieves.

As for signs, a generic "blank" that would accept decals or stickers would be welcome, but some customers might favor "iconic" signs for their MBS. In a society where education was almost exclusively the province of the wealthy, signs were very often representative -- a wagoner might have a wagon wheel in front of his workshop, a tailor might have a big pair of scissors (carved from wood), and so on.

I'm not sure what you mean by "posts", though. Is a post a column? Do "beams and supports" actually go horizontally underneath a floor section?

Perhaps in the future we could have some partially ruined pieces - burned, knocked down or otherwise damaged...of course interiors could also be nice (pews for instance or other room layouts)...though I think there are other companies doing these sorts of things and I gather DF is getting away from accessories and such.

On a related note I understand that some (and perhaps much?) of Grendel's old line will begin to be realsed (in the U.S.) under the megaminis name beginning in October - a few sets each month. Seems as though they are planning to package the sets differently...shame since I have a number of the pieces already and have some - but not all - of the peices in certain sets they are releasing - etc. Check their web site - www.megaminis.com/ under future releases (the ones coded in green for resin kits)
