    Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

    Terain trays were a winner for me. No way I wanted as many lava tiles as I'd need to build some builds, and this way I can put lava or water or whatever I want right up next to dungeons or caves or whatever... We've got water, lava, acid, and dungeon stone now; KS6 will be adding cave stone, quicksand, festering floor, standing and running cave water, icy sheet and snowy rock, necrotic sludge and bottomless pit. That's a lot of options... Oh - and they carry setups for you.

    The DF Stalagmites (both the KS6 pack and the older KS2 pack) are in a completely different league from the Reaper Stalagmites. DF's stalagmites are massive solid beasts - they make the Reaper stalagmites look like soda straw formations; piece count alone is inadequate to describing the value. I would highly recommend those packs to anyone who wants stalagmite terrain. (Note: the KS6 stalagmite pack includes corner pieces which are mostly designed to liven up wall corners; if you're laying out stalagmites on a mat, the set has a bit less value IMHO...)

    DF understands the dynamic. They aim for prepainted, LED and magnetic pieces, and complex designs that the more entry level competitors can't match. But doing this means that their prices keep rising, too.

    Transluscent, white, or gray it's all the same material. If they don't think it looks good in transluscent it will likely be because they feel something doesn't look right about it... Now I don't know about the harder NewBonesium, but generally plasticity and color are separate with PVC blends.

    In all seriousness, most of the Dreadmere stuff has been showing up in metal already; you'll probably get your wish - or... they'll set the building on fire.

    I think it's the non-Evil counterpart to a Peryton. An anti-peryton.

    I think you'll get your shipment by the time we get our last round. Asia is being pre-packed (i.e. your stuff is getting sorted and boxed near the factory) now, shipment in about 2 weeks. US final shipment arrives in 16 days (to shore or to warehouse I'm not sure, but I'm guessing shore based on timing...). Then it's a week to unpack, pack, and start shipping. Add another week in transit if the shipping estimate is sea travel only. You'll be telling us about golems and elevation and stuff that we won't see for another week... The US has a warehousing facility that's already staffed. It's actually easier for them to get this stuff off their floor, and the overhead is relatively minimal. Paying distributors adds up... EU are the real losers in this as they have to wait for a 5-week ship journey that might have left on Monday China time. They'll receive the equivalent of US wave 2 about the same time everyone else gets their final shipment.

    If the terrapin's equipment is totally separate from the terrapin as it looks like it might be, that's going to be a great set! Love the render.

    This KS is going to drain my wallet. I love complex cave builds, and I'm impressed by what's been teased to date.

    Latest DF KSV shipping update: at the DF forums Everything has finished production. NA is shipping wave 2, which is encounters 8-14 (maybe unpainted 15 and 13 part 2 according to backer shipping notices), almost all unpainted add-ons except elevation tray and emperor's palace, and some painted add-ons. Remainder arrives in 10-17 days (to US port or warehouse I'm not sure). EU first shipment ship is 2-3 weeks out from Germany, contains pretty much everything NA is getting in the first two waves. AU first shipment is somewhere at sea. Asia will ship complete by 1st week of August. Mideast 3-4 weeks out. Lots of detail on just what's outstanding in the post.

    Dreadmere: Terrapin handler Dreadmere: The only part of the Terrapin that's been seen is its pack AFAIK Dreadmere: Herbalist Darkreaches: I can't find the Dark Elf Female Warrior anywhere Darkreaches: Also don't know where the Troglodyte Boss is, though all three Trogs are on the page as 3D renders. We have seen the Carnivorous Pudding, at least in green.

    I caught mine hiding out in the shelves early, but I know exactly what you mean! Books. In bookshelves. Who'd ever know?

    Overturn Rising Sands

    It is still uncool to copy rules text and not be up front about it. This is a game they've supposedly spent a lot of time on - and I believe they have on the creative side. But their order of execution, combined with the way they've appropriated text from several places, does not give me confidence as an investor. Have they appropriated anything else? Will someone drain their resources in a copyright lawsuit? The best thing they could do IMHO is to cancel this KS and come back with prepared materials and a more finalized product (and someone who can be clear and consistent in communication...)

    If it gets to "not sticky" it's good already.
