What do you think of their fantasy dungeon sets?  What's better?

You know I picked up the dungeon set from the first Kickstarter and never even opened it, in fact till I saw this post I forgot all about it. Had planned on digging out my Secret Weapon road set, will take a look and see if I can find the dungeon set and check it out.
We haul ours to kick theirs.

I posted a few YT videos during their last KS : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeK2JAOwNegIL1C5gB8qKpA

I have bought most of their Kickstarter's  sets and love them.  Fun to put together and easy to paint. Waiting now for the last Kickstarter to arrive which should be soon. The give you (IMHO) a really good deal, especially with all the stretch goals attached.  in the last Kickstarter you are getting 60+ miniatures along with the scenery the Dragons and animal adventurers were great. Some sets are better than other but there is something for everyone fantasy and Sci Fi.  Lots of cool Youtube videos out there you should watch for a better idea.

I think D&L stuff is great value for money.

I think the joints that attach the floors to the walls are a bit on the thin side, so we prefer to keep the rooms and corridors built, rather than to have it fully customizable every time. This is the only issue we found. Other than that: great set.

I'm a fan. I got into it at D&L2 and got it all painted up.

Therefore I invested in D&L3 which came last week. Quality-wise, they made another step-up with regards to D&L2, and that was already good.

The miniatures are very nice and detailed, the Rooms are very robust.

Hello guys,
I've just received my pledge. I made this KS essentially for minis and so I choose a double basic pledge. A ton of figures for skirmish fantasy that added to Blacklist wave 1, and 2 if will ever arrive, will keep me busy for more than a life...  lol
Great value for that price, even if I don't like particularly mult-part minis (but this was clearly stated).
What is surprising is the extreme professionality of Archon Studio (especially  if in contrast with that of some other above). It's the first time I get my KS pledge far before the ETA (July 2022) :o
Simply a great company!
Thank you!

How do the minis compare size wise to frostgrave/oathmark/victrix/wargames atlantic?

I'm considering backing, but the scale for minis holds me back some.

Mini's are on the small side, so are smaller than Reaper Bones, but okay with Frostgrave?

You can find pics on the D&L Fans FB, but will have to scroll a bit. : https://facebook.com/groups/2418164861823205/
