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.
