Mageknight Dungeons / Safari Ltd Civil War Bridge
« on: September 17, 2012, 03:29:03 AM »
I picked up a great bit of terrain for my dungeons. Its the Civil War Birdge by Safari Ltd. The part number is 650604.

The North vs. South revisited with this richly detailed, hand painted collection of Confederate and Union soldiers. Each replica is set in an action pose, is sure to spark a child's desire to learn more about this important period of American history. All our products are phthalate-free and thoroughly safety tested to safeguard your child's health. Safari Ltd.® takes pride in providing breathtaking, innovative and value priced figures for now over 3 generations. Featured is our Historical Collection Civil War Stone Bridge Size: 5.75" to 1.5" H [14.5 to 4 cm]. Suggested age 3+

Here are a few photos:

The piece is of very high quality. It works really well with mage knight. My only complaint is that the slope of the bridge makes it difficult to position a character on the left or right side. I think we will work it into a gaming session by making it take up 2 movement points to reach the other side and 1 just to stand in the center.

The bottom of the piece is held on by 6 screws. After opening it up I think I may have just enough space to pack in 2 LEDs and a small battery and switch. I'll need to cut away some of the plastic, but I think it will work. My idea is to illuminate the bottom of the bridge an eerie green or blue colored light.

I picked it up at Michaels, an Arts and Crafts store, for $7.99. I was told that its a new item for them. After doing a bit of research I see that they are selling it a few dollars cheaper than anywhere else. They also tend to have coupons in the Sunday paper for 40% off most items. It might be really easy to snag one of these, with a coupon, for next to nothing.

I also picked up 3 coffins from their Halloween village shelf. Everything was 40% off and I snagged them for $2.09. They work great in my dungeon as well. They are the perfect size.

Mageknight Dungeons / Mage Knight Apocalypse Dragon NIB on eBay
« on: March 12, 2012, 07:53:24 PM »

In case anyone is curious. There is a MK Apocalypse Dragon, new in the box, on eBay. The guy is asking $200 but has a best-offer button. I doubt he will take much less, it seems like he knows what he has.

Anyways, thought someone might be interested. I don't think many people are searching eBay for MK any more, and figured pointing it out might benefit someone.

I've been wanting this set in particular. DF stuff is really well made, and usually very well painted. I'm not a painter and I never get around to trying my hand at it... mostly because I know I'll have issues and it will take time and money to figure out how to do it right. I purchased some Hirst treasure bundles off eBay and 6 months later they are still unpainted. Going with the DF set I was getting what I wanted and it was already ready to play with. So in those regards I am very happy. I just wish I could have snagged 2 or 3 of these when they were selling for 23.99 on

Mageknight Dungeons / MM-016 Treasure and Magic Items Set
« on: February 29, 2012, 11:45:07 PM »
for a long time i have wanted to add the dwarven forge treasure set to my MKD. i just missed the last production run of the item, before that i had no idea dwarven forge existed. so i tried my best to track one down, but this out of print set was always selling for more than $100. i finally settled on paying $100 for it, and saved up the money over a year so it ended up feeling like i had the money all along. i checked high and low for a set and could never find one. i finally saw a new listing on ebay but the guy wanted well over $200 and would not budge on the price. one night while looking at photos of the ebay listing and longing to own it, i decided to do some random google searches. wouldn't you know it, i stumbled across a site in canada who claimed to have the item in stock.

the site was:

i contacted the site via their question section and received a response from the owner. he let me know that their inventory showed that they had 1 in stock. the price was $55.95 CAD not including shipping. With shipping i ended up paying just over $75 (after the exchange rate was applied).

two tense weeks later the site arrived in the mail. i can't speak highly enough about the dwarven forge expansion miniatures. they are well designed, crafted, and painted. my only complaint is that the tiny shield is missing 1 of its yellow gems, but that isn't really an issue i'm concerned with.

the set i received is on a purple felt-sprayed tray. the sets that go on ebay are on an orange tray. i'm wondering if my set is an earlier run of the product or if the color of the tray has nothing to do with it? if anyone happens to know the answer, please let me know.

here are a few photos, click to enlarge.


Stuff / Re: What was that one game called?

yep, it was hero quest. it looks rather expensive to track down full sets. i'll have to do the research and try to figure out if its worth it.


Stuff / What was that one game called?
« on: February 26, 2012, 04:00:35 AM »
There was a table top miniature game that I wanted to hunt down awhile ago. It was a dungeon fantasy setting (as I recall) with plastic miniatures. I think it came out in the 80s. I remember that there were a bunch of fun looking expansions that only came out in Europe, making a full set of the game and expansion kind of rare. I think it was Hero something?

I just can't recall what the game was called!! Anyone have any idea what I'm trying to describe?

If you do, do you own it? Is it fun to play? I remember that it looked really cool but was a bit expensive.

Mageknight Dungeons / Re: Might be selling my collection

i haven't played MKD in over 5 years. i left most of my stuff in storage. i have full sets for dungeons, dragons gate, pyramid, minions, and a bunch more. i guess i'm more of a collector because i can't see myself ever selling it. i wish i had someone to play with but it seems everyone has moved onto other hobbies.

Highland_Piper, you have been around since i started researching MK. i hope you hold onto your collection and find someone to play with. if you do decide to sell it off, please let me me know what terrain you have. i am always looking for cool miniatures to add to my dungeons, either for atmosphere for as usable hindering terrain.

sadly i have no one to play MKD with any longer. i recenly moved and left everything but the MKD set in storage (minions full set, dragon's gate full set, pyramid full set, LE sets, a full castle, maps, 3d sets, etc).

i'm really happy to see that you guys are still playing and keeping the game alive!


Mageknight Dungeons / Grendel 28mm
« on: May 29, 2011, 06:07:56 AM »

some of the grendel sets look really nice. i was wondering how they fit with mageknight figures, especially the size and the 1.5 inch base.

i was also wondering what the quality of the grendel casts are? i have 1 dungeon accessory set from dwarven forge and i really love the quality. is the grendel stuff similiar? is it fragile?


Mageknight Dungeons / Bone Chillers
« on: October 27, 2010, 08:57:19 PM »
I've been out on the West coast for the last few months and I came across some candy machine fillers I've been using for MKD. The toys are called "Bone Chillers" and I've found them in Vegas (at the Pinball Hall of Fame) and in Frys in Nothern California. They cost $0.50, although I'm sure someone is selling blister sets online.

Here is an image of the full set:

Here are two of the "gravestone" markers with some MKD figures:

*click to enlarge

The glow-in-the-dark piece is a harder plastic. The other gravestone maker is a rubberized composite of some type. The rubberized piece is “bendy” but stands up strongly. I also have the skull with the snakes in the mouth, and that one is pretty solid as well.

Here is an auction on eBay for a 250 count collection: ... 483ceb5adc

Hirst Arts / Re: Custom DC Projects from CastleKits?

More MAGE themed pieces. Bookcases, work bench, spell components, a lab, etc. Floor could be round, tower like rooms, lots of skulls and dead stuff! =). Could easily be designed to have one round room atop another and have an actual tower with a way to climb down to the bottom. Outside could be guardians on the grounds, magical forests, roads to saftey, etc.

Hmm, perhaps has a shared opponent -- like get santa! i think they are too strong to be a mage spawn? The Frosty the Snowminion figure is a really cool scupt. I would love to use it as a MS in some way. I guess scenarios built around these figures could be fun; perhaps they are the guardians of a Dragon’s treasure.

I honestly have not played MKD is over 3 years. I’m still collecting and interested in it but I’ve run out of adults that want to give the game a play. With that said, please feel free to take your time with this.

Thanks again!
