Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

Recommended Posts

I got my PM email. Haven't had a chance to think through it yet.

 

I was hoping for elevations and trees. Am now thinking I will try and build a pledge around the natural bridge, rope bridge, stairway to violence, and the new forest terrain trays. It is going to take some finesse to figure out.

Got mine today as well.  It's all about the back half of the campaign for me!  The ice caves and onward.  And maybe more trees.  28mm forest terrain isn't hard to make but, for me, it's really hard to store and maintain without being crushed!

Weird. Natural bridge and stairway were my 2 must haves.

Forests were my must haves. I ended up sacrificing cavern stuff on the alter of getting more forests. I did add the big terrain variety pack too. Gonna get a lot of use out of that one.

What's the name so I can check? Right now debating Cave Pools (a bunch of mid terrain trays and a bunch of pieces) and actual terrain trays set (for a 12x12) and maybe banks/stalagmites set. Those might be roughly similar cost options but give me different things.

Locks so far:  adventure pack 4 (some fun scatter and variety of small trays) natural bridge & stairway (big pieces).

If I was going big, probably forest terrain trays and a few things to go with.
To combine with Tablescapes and stuff I mentioned above, what's the one (moderately priced) piece/set you think I'm missing? Looking for suggestions, please.

I just went crazy and added most of everything I would want. It is over $2k, which is insane. I need to dial that way back now...

Your lucky! I am looking at about a third to half of what I want and I am already just over $3k.  I really need to want less.

I'm being judicious due to exchange. The latest update with the Epic Crystal Corner look awesome. And then I see that add on, and I only want that giant crystal, which doesn't look that big. Still having so many problems deciding.

 

Possibly looking at stairway, natural bridge, banks, trifecta, cave cliffs, smugglers cove tray  (elevation, negative space, big items, tray/water) which is waaaay more than I want to spend but still only about 360 w/ exchange.

My alternate with webbed lair and cave pool is about 12$ less painted (80$ unpainted) but gives me more small terrain trays with variety but less elevation and negative space, and smaller terrain. Gah. Not sure what to mix with my tablescapes (didn't get any stackers).

Your not going to like this suggestion, but the easiest would be to remove all the forest and forest related stuff.  You may have to wait but you can get it all a year or two down the road.  But on the other hand you could just forget that suggestion and stick with your list as is.

You can try switching all the painted to unpainted.  I’m not sure how much that’ll save you you though.

This might be the answer as it puts things right around $1500

I am not going to discuss how much i spent on this round.  I will say that i absolutely adore the forest and i have uses both for gaming and for decoration.  I keep a small village in the house that goes through seasons with the rest of the year.  now it can have trees and a witches cottage in the deep woods.  As for painting:  the dungeon tiles were easy paint jobs and required little to no effort.  i would not want to try and paint the forests, i would spend way too much time with them and wind up not getting more than 10% complete before i moved on to something else.  Then i would have pricey stuff i am not using...

 

I know my weaknesses. :B): I was able to resist the dungeons 2 and the citybuilder, but with the forest, i was lost before i even started.  the best part is its good for any scale from 10mm to 45mm as the trees change from heavy second growth forest to new growth colony.  I can use them for CAV, for RPGs, frostgrave, and even shadowrun and scatter terrain for Car Wars and Warhammer Kill Team and 40k.

      Since I’m getting close to finishing my trike and mechs I want to try to get some.....bigger projects finished that have been languishing in the U.F.O. (Unfinished Objects) Status for some time now. Here are the ones I’ll be focusing on.
      The bridge. With a 28mm figure for comparison. 

       
      Now fo the other more ambitious pieces. 
      This is going to be a modular fortress. So far I have only two pieces based. Once again more 28mm figures for scale.





      And my most ambitious project. It will only be used on a 6x6 area most likely. 


      Multiple paths allow access to the top of the mountain. And the top can be removed allowing for battles inside of the mountain.


      Thanks for looking!

      I got this fake bonsai at a dollar store for a couple of dollars. Pulled it out of the small vase with rock and styrofoam, trimmed the trunk that was below "ground" and then stuck it on a yogurt lid.
      I put paper towel down for some texture and modgepodged it with brown and various greens. I still intend to flock it a bit. I may also stick it on a cd (hence the waiting to flock). But for now it's playable. I never took process pics. Oops. Maybe more to come.
      MSP bottle for rough scale (about 3"high by 6" span).

      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:

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
