What is Dwarvenite? Edit
Dwarvenite is a non-toxic, PVC based material, specially compounded to hold precise detail, take paint well, and withstand a serious beating. About the same density as resin, Dwarvenite has a wonderful, tactile feel. And the pieces look great.
Original Dwarvenite Game Tiles were thrown off a 10-story tower, and then run over with a truck – and there was no damage. Dwarvenite will stand up to almost anything
The Production Line Edit
Dwarvenite is cast in steel molds.
Parts are cast in a single production run, since set-up time for placing the mold onto the casting machine, and ramp-up time are significant. As each cast is released, it is cooled in water, and then placed into a metal brace so it sets properly.
As the parts are cast, they are delivered to the painters,who hand paint them in steps (initial wash, drybrush, light drybrush, final details). Then they are packaged up for shipment.
