If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

Some of the key features:
New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
Passages
Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

Really excited to see what will be in this KS. I'll have more funds for this one than DoD.

 

For DF owners, what set would you say you use the most? Dungeon, cavern, city, etc ?

I am super excited about this one, but also currently have pretty much no hobby funds. Not sure how this will pan out for me.

It really depends. I own stuff from all the Dwavenite sets and use quite a variety. Caverns is probably the least often due to how much city and town interactions we have in my games. Caverns are a ton of fun, though. I am especially a fan of the elevation and water stuff that is currently available.

I'll have to wait for "Return to the city" KS next year for these :P 1 year at a time but maybe some day I'll have all i need !  (which is never enough... maybe...)

Well I'm eager to see what they make.  I'm surprised its happening so quickly....KS5 didn't ship did it?


Hoping they will sneak a City builder advanced builder piece for Tudor  (the half walls and half floors) i know its a long shot though.

I use the caverns the most, by far. Second is the dungeon.  Third is the city and last is the castle, though my 12 yo son and I have built some really awesome castles!  (just havent played them in games yet).

Why is it so far away :(

 

I debated whether to start the topic yet. 

 

In the end I figured the more time cavern terrain gamers have to save up gaming funds the better.

I already say the post on DF forums and I too wanted to start a post here to spread the news. But I didn't XD

DF tiles aren't cheap. IiRC, The average backer for the last one pledged $1K. That's double the high end pledge of a CMON KS. Also, wasn't the last DF KS a year ago? I remember the DF KS being spaced two years apart, and now it's one. I like how KS creators are giving more time for potential backers to prepare to pledge. I remember when we didn't have much notice and were somehow expected to empty $150+ out of our pockets.

You are correct DF tiles aren't cheap, but they are Awesome.

 

DF has had a KS every year,  the first was funded and fulfilled in 2013 and the second did both in 2014.  After that they started having more complicated KS that funded in one year and fulfilled the next year.

 

KS5 was run last year but is due to fulfill this spring.  Then KS6 will return us to my favorite gaming environment Caverns.

I am really looking forward to seeing what comes out this year. I went in medium on KSV, and hope to spend lesson caverns. But it will be hard, I suspect. 

 

Unfortunately going medium on DF means spending 2 and a half times what I pledges for Bones IV.

Yeah, but you can use your DF terrain more often than your typical mini from Reaper, unless it's a PC.  DF typically only has 3 environments:  Stone walls (with themes), Cavern, and City.  Get some of each and you can make almost any setting with the exception of outdoors.  Caverns can be painted to be limestone, underdark, underwater, etc.  Stone walls can be fieldstone, sandstone, brick, etc.  With minis it's harder to creatively use them to represent a creature they weren't intended to be. 

 

What I'm getting at is you may pay more, but that's due to larger, heavier pieces and more opportunities to use them.

I had to be very calculating with my choices for KS5 to get the pieces that would enhance my big dungeon builds best with out killing my finances.

 

I expect to be in huge trouble with KS6 because I love big elaborate cavern builds even more than big dungeons.

True, I have minis that may only get uses once or twice in game but a terrain piece will get used hundreds of times in game, having said that I am not about to stop collecting awesome minis either.

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      Here I will paint the inhabitants of the world beneath us.
      You will find Drow, Myconids, Beholders and all sorts of cave dwelling creatures here.
      I might also try my hand at some terrain or buildings.
       
      Some stuff that awaits painting:

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
