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.

      From the team behind hit games Hellboy: The Board Game and Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf’s Kings Quest, League of Infamy is an occasionally co-operative dungeon crawler for up to 5 players, where it pays to commit dastardly deeds and partake in foul thievery – often against your own party.
      Join a rogue’s gallery of misfits, ne’er-do-wells and miscreants on a disgraceful mission to kidnap cute little baby Drakons, steal their eggs and viciously wipe out any irritating, goody-goody Elves that try to stop your nefarious schemes.
      But it’s not just the Elves you’ll need to keep a wary eye on. Your fellow (mis)adventurers are just as likely to betray you and steal your loot, shove you into harm’s way or just leave you in a dungeon full of unbeatable foes. As they like to say in the League of Infamy – ‘keep your enemies close but keep your friends at knifepoint’. 
       
      In the limited edition No Half Measures expansion, you must investigate reports of an ancient form of long-forgotten magic: gastromancy! Deal with halflings as strong as an ogre or tricky traps with toxic poisons. It's not all bad though, because you might come across a tasty pie or two to loot!
      In the Kickstarter Exclusive Siren's Wrath expansion, the League is furious that the Trident Realm is messing with one of its most important trade routes... which absolutely won't do! You're sent in to raid the Trident Realm keep and gather as many goods as you can. However, this will be your hardest mission yet, as the Keep Master takes advantage of the aquatic landscape to boost their Defenders.

      Online, from a certain market of miniatures, I found some "Kaosball" team expansion packs on clearance (for a better price than what they're listed at now, as of this writing).  Each pack contains 13 32mm-scale minis in 2 poses (6 of one pose on 25mm square bases, and 7 of an alt pose on 25mm round bases), a "bust" that represents the "team coach," and a game-specific 12-sided die (which I suppose isn't much use for anything, unless I actually wanted to play the game).  Anyway, this worked out to being under $1 a figure, and the sculpts looked interesting, so I got a few packs.  (I find it hilarious, though, that while most of the packs are marked down, the "Felinia Hellcats" -- scantily-clad gun-toting cat-girls -- are specifically marked as "[CLEARANCE]" and yet they're priced at about 3x the asking price for each of the other teams.)
       
      I originally picked these guys up (the "Samaria Barbarians") with a vague intent that "someday" I would run a Savage Worlds convention one-shot scenario heavily inspired by the "Brütal Legend" video game ... but it occurred to me that few if any of my players would have heard of that game, and I'm no particular "expert" on anything rock-and-roll-related, so maybe I'm not the best person to GM such a setting.

      However, I could always use a few more post-apocalyptic wastelanders.  The "big hair" style here doesn't necessarily look like it would fit the current Fallout aesthetic as established in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, but I think these guys wouldn't look terribly out of place in the original Fallout 1 & 2 (what with all the "Mad Max" and "Fist of the North Star" wannabes wandering about in those games).  I removed the figures from their bases, putty-and-texture-stamped the 25mm round bases, putty-and-texture-stamped some plastic 25mm rounds for the remaining figures, and did a few hand swaps and bit-add-ons to give a few of the figures visible ranged weaponry.  (I figured that would give me a little more buy-in if I were to field a gang of these guys for an encounter and then they start FIRING on the PCs, versus what pushback I might get if they *appeared* to only be armed with axes.)

      I used some paper printed license plates to add some "junk armor" elements to further reinforce the "post-apocalyptic" vibe.

      Each team pack also comes with a "bust" to represent the team coach.  I went with a bronze-and-verdigris scheme for each.

      About
      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.
      First Legion Historical

      First Legion Instagram  
      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.
