Sounds to me like what you really need is a 3d printer!


Yeah, I think you are right.

Still gotta figure out the most useful assortment of rooms that came along with my miniatures pledge lol.

Good Earth Tea boxes!


A Yank who drinks tea. There is hope for you yet.

Wrong tea though.



Fix your error.

I will read the rest of your post and this thread when I recover from the shock. And yes I had (correct) tea in the pot when I came to this thread.

Sprawling enough for you?



I am mad enough to rpint this and try to figure out how to store it afterwards. Are you?
If not go with the tea boxes and plump for Woodhaven, its sensible, a swear word for mad gamers.

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

They are admittedly rather nice but from my perspective the Rubicon is crossed.




Having a decent glue that didn't have blooming around the feet of the miniatures was the final step. I was going to procede anyway, but this ahem, cemented, my resolve.

New update

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudio/dungeons-and-lasers-third-edition/posts/3236052

We had to prepare stock and finish the production process of the new themes to start sending all the orders together, as this is too big a logistical undertaking to split it up. But now that we are almost ready, the first packages should be going out in the next few days!


Sewers redesigned to remove supporting ribs so there is less showing through the clear plastic - see the video

I wasn't one of the ones complaining loudly about the infernal option...but I am much happier now that the armour is optional.

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

Beat me to the post. I am happy. I preferred Infernal but didn't like the armour. Infernal with no armour is the optimum birdie.
Other than the helmet the armour doesnt look bad, but it is not for me.

OK That settles it, I will be assembling my High Elf phoenix as a Frostheart phoenix now. I wasnt initially, and I bought the model before this kickstarter.

I was vocal about and made at least half a dozen comments about optional armour. I was polite about it though.

I've also been pretty vocal about the armour, saying that I would prefer it to be optional or left out.

This makes me feel vindicated as a "complainer". Complaining is how we get better things.

Some of the sf stuff and dragons starting to show up on their web store Shipping starts 29th of July 2021

Hello adventurers and commanders!
https://archon-studio.com/shop/21-dungeonslasers


We're launching a retail version of our terrain packs. Including a new Sci-Fi Starter Set that combines elements from the Sci-Fi Core Set and Sci-fi customization bits from the First Edition Watch out for turrets, combat mines, and nosy cameras. Explore corridors, labs, use med-chambers and ammo packs

If you're brave enough, you can go into the Xenogenesis Cell - investigate alien's secrets, face with various space creatures... and Xenodragon Behold! It looks like more dragons from the alternate universe have entered our world! We can hear the thunders of Freyr the Stormbreaker and greedy roars of Durkar the Sovereign Serpent That's why we're sending a special force team - Animal companions

See you in our online store! Shipping starts 29th of July 2021

Nnnnh seems to me about half a core set and half a SG box for the cost of a core set?

KS Core Set $40
14 long wall
27 short wall
12 long floor
18 short floor
7 doors

Retail starter set $54
6 Long Floor
9 short Floor
8 Long wall
15 short Wall
4 Doors
2 SciFi accessory sprues

If you call the 2 accessory sprues $10 worth (half a KS pack) then it is a little over half the content for a similar price

Rooms have the same content $20 on KS $25 retail.

Dragons at $29 are cheaper than the KS price of €29/$35 that might be a copy paste error with the currency.

I suppose it should be normal for KS prices to be less than retail but Archon dragged late pledging on for so many literal years that "going to retail" feels like just a price hike now

I wondered if some dragons would be different prices with these being the cheapest

(I can't get at my boxes at the moment, but some were bigger than others and that might translate into sprue count & therefore cost at retail)

They're all 2 sprues. Box thickness does vary because large bits like wings poke out from the plane of the sprue to varying degrees.

Freyr the Stormbreaker is 3 sprues as it has the clear sprue for the lightning effects so sprue count doesn’t appear to be a factor in the price or that one would definitely cost more.

Huh. That's one tool cast once in gray and once in transparent.

Goes to show how cheap plastic casting is compared to tooling, if it makes financial sense to cast it twice and have the customer throw out half the parts from each.

The Wooden Cottages I rapid ordered have arrived. Good detail overall and they'll work nicely for what I have planned which was always going to involve a lot of modification anyway.

I did a quick mock up just to get a sense of scale and to see how the Dungeon Core set looks as the ground floor level, I don't intend to use them that way but I know others are considering it. The lack of windows is my main issue. The Stormcast can just about fit through the door (if she didn't have a base). The other figures are Fireforge peasants.

I had an idea to get that overhanging look that some medieval/fantasy buildings have so I trimmed off part of the core set long walls to get that effect, again I have other plans for this but I thought I'd try it out. They're going back in the box now until next year -- or whenever the rest is delivered.
