Ever started a project and......

found out that is is much more involved than you though?

Well with the Super 3D dungeon boards Kickstarter it has definitely been that! We are coming up to the end of it with the last few painted boards shipping out soon. 

I plan on putting together a more thorough post with some costs break downs to give everyone an idea of how everything went. 

Qucickly though here is a fun picture with some minis while I had 18 or so painted boards together in a group :)
