Dwarven Forge are a long established terrain making company, I love their stuff, but was never allowed to sell the children to buy some so when they released their game tile kickstarter concept I resisted for about... a day (not bad really). I must admit a couple of the guys in our gaming group have been backing a few kickstarters lately (we are about to see the rewards from Reaper miniatures when Nigel is inundated with plastic minis for D&D)
Dwarven Forge Kickstarter
That little rant aside, I've bitten the buullet and ordered. The $50,000 kickstarter goal to start this project was reached within 3 hours and they are now nearing $500,000, which means more rewards to pledgers are being unlocked so it seems a pretty good scheme. Only drawback I see is having to wait 6 months or so till they are released!
With the so far released bonuses for when different dollar goals have been reached my order is looking at:
Total 2x2 Straight Walls: 66
Total 2x2 Floors: 54
Total 2x2 Corner Walls: 24
Total Swinging Doors: 9
Total Diagonal Walls: 6
Total Diagonal Half Floors: 0
Total Pieces: 159
So roughly $NZ2 per piece even with the send it with is own economy class seat airfare included.
For those into D&D and other RPGs like we are these are well worth a visit. Just don't look at the postage rates:)
