|Dwarven Forge was founded in 1996 by fine artist Stefan Pokorny, a medieval fantasy devotee -- and a fanatical gamer. As a classically trained, professional painter and sculptor, Stefan's dream was to create "real" dungeon terrain to equal to his incredible 25mm tall hero figures. Beautiful terrain that made games come alive, but was also totally modular, fun and easy to use. After many months of painstaking design, sculpting and painting, he introduced the world's finest pre-painted miniature terrain.
Response was overwhelming! Gamers loved the intricate, realistic detail and that the sets came fully hand-painted -- ready to use right out of the box. They marveled at how they could rearrange the pieces to depict an infinite number of settings. And today most sets are made of nearly indestructible, trademarked Dwarvenite, so they'll last for generations to come.
Fast forward to today: we never dreamed that Kickstarter backers would help us create the staggering variety of offerings that we have today. For that, we thank our thousands of loyal backers. We'd be honored to welcome you to their ranks.
