      Well he just sent out that e-mail about he was overwhelmed and his wife wants him to stop etc..

    2. Creator Joey on December 29

      Yeah he promised me a refund several times over email...back in 2012...and 2013...

    3. Creator Preston L. Bobo on December 22

      I wonder if the Facebook group ever saw anything with their breach of contract pursuit.

    4. Creator David Londono on December 11

      Yep looks like he is gone. I hope his kids don't grow up to be like this thief. I realize the world can be tough but stooping to level of conning people out if their money to try and make a quick buck is pretty low.

      Bad news. Looks like his site is suspended. I doubt we'll hear from him again.

    6. Creator Preston L. Bobo on November 26, 2014

      I just sent Nick a message, so hopefully I will find out soon.
      Last time I sent him a message he sent back a reply fairly quickly.

    7. Creator David Londono on October 26, 2014

      Well unfortunately I'm out $100. I can only hope it went to a good cause and anyone that observes how the "owner" of this project handles himself learns to not steal from those that place their trust in his ability. One can only wonder when responsibility stopped being taught to kids.

    8. Creator Eric rice on October 13, 2014

      just looked as i do occasionally at modest magic web page to see if there is any type of change there and no it appears it has been abandoned so that's not a promising sight i have yet to hear anything and i have tried numerous times a little communication would be nice

    9. Creator James Priebnow on October 8, 2014

      My terrain needs have been satisfied by other products by this point. Between Dwarven Forge, Dungeonstone, World Works Games I think I can give up on this one. If the creator has the ability to issue one, a refund would be appreciated. At this point, I'm only out the $35 so it doesn't much matter.

    10. Creator Edward Deangelis on October 3, 2014

      So kick starter updated there terms of use.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/terms-of-use#section4

    11. Creator David Londono on October 3, 2014

      Another month and no news.

    12. Creator Mark Bedson on September 19, 2014

      Also still waiting. Could you please update us Nicholas?

    13. Creator David Londono on September 6, 2014

      Well let's try the last comment's idea. Couldn't hurt, at the very least a courtesy response might happen!

    14. Creator Edward Deangelis on August 24, 2014

      Saw this posted on another kickstarter where a lot of people are not getting things.(The below post is what I copied from his graveyard kickstarter)

      Hey guys, Ive been talking to a lawyer about getting our money back. Having a list of people who want there money back would help
      https://www.facebook.com/groups/1426556987624920/
      Join this group so I can show there is a demand for action.

    15. Creator David Londono on July 6, 2014

      I have even attempted to contact Nicholas through his website to see about the possibility of purchasing something in addition to help speed up the process. I figure he may have blown through his capital and maybe a bit more might salvage something. I did not even receive a response. Much like the rest of this Kickstarter, there is zero communication. Let's face it, those of us that have received nothing have been ripped off. I doubt there are any legal options, but does anyone know for sure?

    16. Creator Daniel W. Cisek on June 25, 2014

      Wow. I'm amazed people are still waiting. 700 days for a couple hundred castles, what did we help him get a machine for if it's not being used to make castles. I mean, I paid extra cash to get mine, but knowing people are still hanging is pretty damn disappointing. I don't think I'll ever understand the math behind this one.

    17. Creator Joe Cwik on June 24, 2014

      It's been almost two years since it was expected to be delivered, and no more updates. I know I only pledged $35, but I can't help but feel completely ripped off. The OTHER Kickstarter is suffering the same fate, it seems. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/397426799/modest-magics-card-graveyard/comments

    18. Creator Edward Deangelis on June 17, 2014

      Still nothing heard on my end and it's June now.

    19. Creator David Londono on May 24, 2014

      Just to continue the pattern in comments, anyone hear anything? At this point I wish I knew if I. Could just add something else and finally see something from this kickstarter? Thoughts?

    20. Creator Dave Wheeler on May 5, 2014

      Anyone have any updates? At this point it's been over 2 years. What is going on man?

    21. Creator David Londono on April 5, 2014

      Anyone hear anything?

    22. Creator Dave Wheeler on March 23, 2014

      Any updates on the shipping list?

    23. Creator stlstrapper on March 9, 2014

      Me too Jon M- got my two castles a few weeks back and I feel like my house is absolutely PACKED full of terrain! I may try to build a Norman keep 1:1 scale :)

    24. Creator Jon Martindale on March 4, 2014

      For those still waiting on there terrain, I got mine the other day. Almost 2 years after the initial campaign but I'm now swimming in terrain.

    25. Creator Dave Wheeler on February 24, 2014

      Any updates dude?

    26. Creator 3rd Dimension Gear (3DG) on January 29, 2014

      That's exactly what I did as well, Daniel. It's obvious that the creator here underestimated some of the costs involved, so communicating with him and buying something else gives him the funds to cut your foam and get it shipped.
      Doesn't excuse things, of course, but it was the solution that worked for me.
      Glad to hear you got yours, Bradley! I think we just kind of snapped the parts out of the frames, and then clean up the edge if necessary.

    27. Creator Bradley Eng-Kohn on January 17, 2014

      Got mine this week!

      One question, how do I best separate the parts from the frame? Should I use an exacto blade?

    28. Creator Daniel W. Cisek on January 8, 2014

      Anybody waiting: maybe try to order something from the store, that's what I did over a year ago and I got my castle then. But, that would mean yes, you'd have to spend more $.

    29. Creator David Londono on December 26, 2013

      Surprisingly not a single comment to found. Though same here, nothing at all.

    30. Creator Dave Wheeler on December 26, 2013

      Nothing yet.

    31. Creator David Londono on December 8, 2013

      Just for kicks, anyone hear ANYTHING about shipments? This has kickstarter had become the center piece for my wife as to why some kickstarters need more research and planning before attempting to raise funds.

    32. Creator Dave Wheeler on October 21, 2013

      any updates yet?

    33. Creator MIke Nutt on October 15, 2013

      So how many of these have shipped, understand us international backers may be a bit Harder to get around too, and it's. A. Hard Slog, but will it happen?

    34. Creator Jeremy Weyand on August 19, 2013

      I picked up my two castle sets in one BIG box at Gen Con this weekend. Everything is there, and it all looks good. Thanks Nick!

    35. Creator Dave Wheeler on July 27, 2013

      Any updates? I am itching to get my hands on this terrain and it's waaaaaay over due!

    36. Creator Nicholas Whitney on July 2, 2013

      Ahh it totally is! Sorry man! I just got your personal message and I'll respond to that but I wanted to post a note letting everyone know there will be an update tomorrow. Things have been really rockin around here! :-)

    37. Creator 3rd Dimension Gear (3DG) on July 2, 2013

      Testing... testing... is this thing on? ;)

    38. Creator 3rd Dimension Gear (3DG) on June 26, 2013

      Also Nick, a question- in this picture in particular, you can see on the very left side of the picture that there is a walkway ending in a stair... and it doesn't look to me like we're doing it right. I couldn't figure out any other way to make the walkway end in a stair, though. Can you glance at it and see if we're doing anything wrong with that?

    39. Creator 3rd Dimension Gear (3DG) on June 26, 2013

      Hey guys,
      Check out some pics on my local game store's efforts to get the Alien City terrain which I donated to the store together:
      http://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/images-9594-34775_Modest%20Magic%20Terrain.html
      We just did worked on that this evening, but had something like 20 people helping out at various times! We're coating it in "Jaxsan", which is what our local terrain guy swears buy to make foam tougher (and to texture it, we might paint this as ruins / relics). A lot of work is ahead of us but I just wanted to post the progress! I felt so guilty having this for a while without having been able to work on it, but it's a big job and many hands makes less work!

    40. Creator Preston L. Bobo on June 26, 2013

      @Nicholas how is that revised timeline coming.

      Also congrats on the other project successfully funding.

    41. Creator Nicholas Whitney on June 10, 2013

      Sure thing! There will also be a revised timeline update coming out soon with all the reward tiers on it for the backers who haven't received their rewards yet.

    42. Creator Dave Wheeler on June 8, 2013

      Any update on when we can expect our shipments I see some are receiving them? Could you drop me a line with even a rough estimate on when I could expect mine?

    43. Creator Nicholas Whitney on May 23, 2013

      Alright everyone, the new project is live! Wish me luck! I forgot how nervous this can make you!

    44. Creator Kevin Watson on May 20, 2013

      I received my package over the weekend, and have spend a lot of the weekend removing the pieces from the sprues. It is a bit of a shame that the foam used wasn't blue, would have gone well with me watching Breaking Bad over again from Season 1 this weekend to be covered in blue instead of pink dust all weekend.

      It is a very large amount of terrain. Seeing it first hand really drives this point home. Wife is looking forward to playing with it, too, now. May leave some of it unpainted so she can have a girl keep.

    45. Creator K. David Woolley on May 4, 2013

      I see the wisdom in banging out some low material cost items, and the price range does make it something of an impulse buy option for a store. Best of luck. (12m30s) http://youtu.be/eOW6XJq4B7U

    46. Creator Nicholas Whitney on May 4, 2013

      Thanks Kevin, I tend to forget to post on here as well as answering questions individually. You are correct about the tracking. I usually get email about a week before I ship to let the person know to expect the package and make sure that there haven't been any address changes or things like that.

    47. Creator Kevin Watson on May 4, 2013

      Latest update indicates that castles are about 50% shipped. My understanding is Nick emails before the package ships with some kind of tracking information. I have not received mine yet. When I do, I will confirm as much of this as I can.

    48. Creator Bradley Eng-Kohn on May 3, 2013

      How do we know if we are supposed to have received stuff? Do you email us when you ship?

      Thanks!

    49. Creator Chris Jhu on May 3, 2013

      Any ETA when the remaining packages will ship? I only pledged for some wall sections, and haven't really followed enough to know when the delay will be over.
