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)

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.

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 ?

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...)

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).

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.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
