-The 2nd campaign will offer products from the 1st campaign as well (called Legacy Products) with an option for shipping within a month from the end of 2nd ed Kickstarter. So ultra-fast, in the scale of Kickstarter, delivery.

- 6 YES! that's 6 Dragons as a single pack or to buy individually, or as a free stretch goal with your terrain pledge! Please give us feedback in the questionnaire about prices! Link to the questionnaire at the bottom of the update.


Here are 4 dragons out of 6! and yes that DnD miniature is in scale (28mm). More pictures below.
Currently, we have only planned to make fantasy themed dragons! Please convince us in the comments to make one in a Sci-Fi theme (please! I need good arguments to convince the boss!)

-optional half-walls - we are making, as we speak (see video), 1st test tool for half-walls, this was requested by you in the post-KS questionnaire. Half-walls will be an OPTIONAL buy (or selected in the pledge manager instead of 50mm ones, we are still working on it). Cost of it - as it will be optional we will make it as close to manufacturing costs as legally possible!

- as requested, we will be also making a large tool with end-half-clips, available to purchase for manufacturing cost / or will be part of a stretch goal, no only that we have some ideas for clips supporting next tier (more to come in next updates), this option will allow you to build easily several dungeon levels.

- 3 more themes, 2 fantasy Dwarven Mine, Cursed Cathedral, and Temple of the Operators. )and POSSIBLY MORE?








- All new stretch goals! We are aiming to DOUBLE the number of stretch goals to 1st DnL Kickstarter! Yes, twice more!



- Pre-launch Stretch goals! : For the first time, we are introducing Pre-Launch Stretch Goals. The more folks subscribe to our Pre-Page on Kickstarter, LINK: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudio/dungeons-and-lasers-second-edition the more free items we are adding to the pledges! Head on to our KS page and click "subscribe"! Make sure your friends know about and share the link: archon-studio.com/dnl2



We want to make as the best deal for backers as possible, thus, we need your feedback and support about DnL 2.0 here is the link to the new questionnaire:

https://archon-studio.com/content/dungeons-lasers-second-edition-early-survey

You will find more information on our blog here: https://archon-studio.com/blog/dungeons-lasers-second-edition




they did the rapid delivery of existing stuff for their previous terrain KS and it worked well, and came in on time, and their plastic is pretty good so if you like the look of it well worth considering

also do sign up for KS notification as that's going to help backers get more stuff!

That's an interesting dragon. A bit 90s comic-book for my tastes, but what dragons aren't these days?

TBH I'd contribute just for the faerie dragon.

Pretty much (at least the stuff i'm following), the previous Dungeons & Lasers is shipping it's final stuff,

(covid regulations permitting, some countries aren't accepting post, and others like the US there's a limit on how many packages they can send)

Ramparts part 2 shipped all the prexisting stuff on time, and almost all the new stuff is tooled & in production except the tank which is up next

so they're more on time than most KS projects for those

I can attest to the plastic quality and the speedy delivery.
They're on top of their game and they even stepped up to help with some mask and face shield stuff for their first responders. I would back this but I don't need walkways, I need buildings and interiors (so I can account for the Rampart line being amazing value for the money)

They've really turned the ship around. I consider Archon 100% reliable at this time (but I don't mean to in any way demean or deny awful experiences people have had in the AvP era).

If I needed dungeon tiles I'd throw hundreds of bucks at this without any fear.As is, I'll get some dragons if they're around 30€ and hopefully the scatter terrain if it will be available independently of the tiles.

You'd think with their past issues with AVP they wouldn't be trying to remind people of that!

That said I haven't had any issues with Archon's own stuff and backed both Rampart KS, I think their terrain is good I'm not a fan of their artistic style for their minis but that's just my tastes.

That Xenodragon is pretty cool, I gotta admit.

Plus they're all going to be hard plastic kits. Curious as to what the pricing will be like.

I hope the prices are good. My son saw the Xenodragon and that is now a must have!

Good to hear about Archon, since its AvP and LOAD days.

I have the Secret Weapon MIniatures Dungeonscape tiles and prefer them, because they're "chunkier" like rocks. The mines remind me too much of a Disneyland dark ride.

That said, I'm looking for town building walls, and I think the wall design would work well. So, if they add them to the KS, please post!

I'm not going to get into another argument with someone who thinks the way *they* paint is the *only* way to paint, am I??

I do hope they rethink the base size as the Dragons look top heavy.

I doubt it, since they're doing them as sculpted bases on the same sprue making them bigger would mean redesigning the dragons or adding another sprue

but it's easy enough to put them on a blank base if you think they need a larger one

Tail looks bad on xeno, too long and not tapered at all.

The xeno dragon and its tail has a very Alien 3 profile from the side. Looks good from that angle, but not so great from others. Overall, I love it and it may be the only dragon for me that I pick up.

Those tiles are tempting.

Anyone have pictures 'in the wild' of the first set?

Warren from beasts of war is playing around with them, there's other stuff in there too but a lot is the original dungeons and lasers stuff

I bought the sci-fi sets (I have a ton of dwarven forge, so didn't need the fantasy), and they're fairly good. I haven't had a chance to paint them yet (cutting them out and priming only so far), except for this test piece:



Though, this is what the scifi somewhat looks like put together (floor has been primed silver, walls primed white - for use eventually in the Aliens RPG)

Looks like they finally got around to finishing the AVP project... cha cha cha ( Snaredrum!)



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

From their Dungeon & Lasers KS update #31

1. Each dragon will be priced at 35 USD

2. Additionally to the terrain pledges, we will have one just for the Dragons, that's 6 dragons for 119 USD, that's about 19.84 USD per Dragon). One of them will be Xenodragon (being sculpted as we speak!).

3. You will be able to select one free dragon with each terrain pledge of 99USD and above.
