|Dwarven Forge was founded in 1996 by artist Stefan Pokorny, a medieval fantasy devotee -- and an avid Dungeons and Dragons enthusiast. As a classically trained, professional painter and sculptor, Stefan knew that "real" dungeon terrain equal to his incredible 25mm tall hero figures would bring tabletop gaming alive as never before. His goal was to create gaming terrain that was beautiful, 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, which means these sets are made to use for generations to come.
