Dwarven Forge: Hellscape Kickstarter läuft
Diesen extrem umfangreichen Kickstarter stellen wir nur in begrenztem Umfang vor, ein Blick auf die Seite der Kampagne lohnt sich aber.
To old friends and to newcomers, we’ve come a long way together since our first Kickstarter campaign, Game Tiles, in 2013. Since then, right here on Kickstarter, you’ve made an otherwise unimaginable variety of gaming terrain possible. Thank you!
All gamers know that there’s one theme that’s a key part of any great adventure: danger.
So we’re proud to introduce our most deadly setting ever: Hellscape! Only the most intrepid (or the most foolhardy?) will venture into this underworld, whose very essence is lethal… where peril permeates the entire plane, and manifests as fire that consumes the very ground beneath your feet. Here, the threat is relentless — and your only imaginable victory is survival.
Hellscape is modular terrain infused with pure danger. Hand sculpted detail so real, so visceral and dramatic, you can feel the blazing magma on your tabletop. Enter if you dare…
Und darum geht es:
Hellscape has been painstakingly sculpted by hand— every rippling lava pool, each jagged rock spire, every infernal rune — by our team here at Dwarven Forge. Many of the pieces have a 4″x“4″ footprint, so modular building is fast and covers a lot of ground. Months of refinement have produced what we think is our finest painting to date, including specific areas with translucent paint.
Everything is cast in Dwarvenite®, our proprietary casting material that combines great heft and tactile feel with amazing durability. For Hellscape, we’ve developed a translucent, yellow-tinted formulation that allows light to penetrate in just the right places. About half our Hellscape pieces are completely new; the rest are updated translucent, lava-painted pieces adapted from Caverns Deep. You can see the entire catalogue of pieces here. We’ve done our very best to make Hellscape come alive!
Hellscape pieces include standard anchor magnets wherever practical. This way, your Hellscape pieces will stick to our terrain trays, making them easy to move and carry without disturbing your setups.

One of the essential features of all Dwarven Forge terrain is its modularity. Hellscape is no exception. You can build the Encounters we’ve pictured — or you can build something completely new, every time. You can also combine your Hellscape pieces with any of our other terrain for unlimited versatility.
With this Kickstarter, we’re also introducing some brand new technology:
DF Light Panels: Our goal was to illuminate entire builds at once, without hotspots, embedded connections or batteries. Place your Hellscape terrain atop these thin, 8″x8″ Light Panels and illuminate your setup (in the right places) in an instant. You can use just one, or you can connect them together in a „daisy chain“ (up to approximately 9 panels with a single transformer). One look and you’ll understand why translucent Dwarvenite is so perfectly suited to this terrain. DF Light Panels are included in specific „Illuminated“ Pledges, and are also available as Add-on Sets.
Phantasmal Filters: Bold graphics are printed onto these 8″x8″ thin but sturdy filters. They look great (and appear opaque) on their own, and magical when placed atop DF Light Panels so the light illuminates them from below (you can see the effect in the image below).
Und das sind die Pledges:
If you’d like to back our campaign, our pledge options are outlined below and actual pledge levels run down the right-hand side of this page. They include:
- A Build Your Own option for those of you who want to select Encounters and Add-on Sets completely à la carte. If you choose sets that contain unlocked free stretch goals, they will be included automatically.
- Hellraiser. This starter option includes an assortment of Scatter Terrain. These are standalone pieces that aren’t just for Hellscape, but go perfectly with battle mats, other types of terrain or even just decorations for your gameroom.
- First, Second and Third Circles of Hell. These pledge levels feature our Main Encounters, with bonus packs and free stretch goals as specified. The „Illuminated“ versions of these pledges include DF Light Panels.
- All Hell Breaks Loose. Our ultimate top level pledge includes double the sets included in the Third Circle of Hell, additional bonus packs — and two exclusive, very special resin capstone pieces to be revealed during the campaign.
