Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

Recommended Posts

I like how they have structured this one to minimize core pieces and let backers with tons of older caverns eventually just get the newer custom pieces per encounter. Looks like it will be less of a headache to optimize than ks5 for that class of backer.

 

Definitely looking forward to what the outdoors sets offer.

This.

 

 

 

 

 

So, getting everything in the painted variety is like $4500. That is pretty crazy. Like, a decent percentage of a car or house payment crazy.

Right so I have looked into KS6 and dammnnnn that one is a lot more expensive than KS5. I understand they have more costs, but damn. Most 'encounters' are one (small) room and ... I might just pick up a few odds and ends, but this is very expensive.

 

There are also some weird things like you pay $10 and $6 shipping and tax just for the privilege of choosing your own dungeon. So you are paying $6 shipping on... nothing? Then there is the fact that import taxes should be based off how much something costs, yet the shipping + tax values of painted vs unpainted are exactly the same... Even though the painted ones should be worth more (they cost more afterall) and should thus require more taxes then unpainted.

 

These sort of things really feel as quite 'sneaky' to me. Too rich for my blood.

I think that there are going to be generic piece add on options this time around.

The more I look at it the more i think i will wait for the add-on. Most of the adventure pieces don't appel to me. As someone who doesn't have any cavern (and still waiting for my KS5) i'm looking more for table coverage and elevation than blings. I hope the underdoom is something like the lava bridge in terms of what I am looking for.

The ice cavern is super appealing to me as an add-on to the old cavern set (plus I like the newer magnetized part design), but wow that's a big, expensive encounter set.

 

I'll have to think hard on this one.

Back when the KS2 caverns KS started many people commented on how much more expensive it was than KS1 dungeons, so I am not surprised that the same thing is happening now from KS5 to KS6.

 

Cavern sculpts are way move detailed with nooks and spikes so it takes what I believe were called sliding molds back in KS2 plus some of these KS6 peices a huge.

 

If you are looking for table coverage in caverns then KS2 sets are the way to go.  I love my KS2 caverns but I am ready to get some KS6 caverns to add more elevation, variety and a more organic lay out.

 

I could just get a couple encounter sets and call it good but I really like many of the KS6 peices so I expect to get more than a few by the end of the Pledge Manager.

Oh good it is not just me (:down: so expensive!).  Looks like I will be waiting and piecing together something in the addons like their last one.  In for a whole $10 until that opens up.  I did pretty good with KS5 since I don't own any of their previous stuff.  Hoping I can do the same here, with maybe a few more "special" pieces this time around since I have a slightly bigger budget.

I am surprised that the crystal caverns in the video haven't made it to picture form and begun circulating.

I do like the corrupted monsters they are including.  I am pretty excited knowing each pack should be available by the end.  I also like that the individual packs are eligible for SGs in this one.

      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!

      About this project
      This is my first set of TerraScapes.  I present to you a natural Caves & Grottos core set. With the full range of double sided modular tiles, you can quickly create ultra-realistic cavern scenarios for any of your spelunking adventures! If you've ever found yourself in a cave, you know how under represented they are in the games that we love to play. There is nothing linear about spelunking and caverns aren't flat! Caves are twisted sections of open air encased by cool moist rocky walls.  That's why I've coined this terrain as a Nonlinear Modular Terrain System, and it's a new way of dressing your Tabletop with functional, dynamic terrain for all your Tabletop RPG's!
      TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos strives to simulate natural terrain for optimal immersion and strategic playability. To maximize the possibilities every tile is double sided! This means that with every tile you get twice the possible play space! Both tops and bottoms of each tile can be used in your layouts!  Each tile is designed to work like a table where instead of legs, you have stalactites and large rocks. It allows you to stack them up however you want! This gives your layout real depth and introduces a whole new dimension for increased strategical encounters. Whether it's for your big boss battle, wargame or random encounter, everything you'll need for an endless tactical cavern layout comes with our set of Caves & Grottos!
      This video shows how to build an endless array of immersive caverns for your tabletop!
      What's in the Full Set?  I have a ton of tiles prototyped and ready for this campaign.  If everything is unlocked we will have 9 Core double-sided tiles, 3 exclusive large  double-sided KS tiles, 2 Rock Packs which include a total of 8 double-sided rocks and rock/well combinations, 2 sets of Stalactite risers containing a total of 4 risers, 3 double-sided flowstone/pit centerpieces and 4 packs of double-sided wall sections containing 8 wall sections.  This is everything you'll need to bring to life any dynamic cavern scenario that you could possibly dream up!  You can purchase any of these Packs of tiles or accessories as Add-ons as they are unlocked during this campaign by managing your pledge amount and adding their cost(s).  If you are bad with arithmetic, just send me a message and I'll give you hand personally!
      I know, I know...  I'm getting ahead of myself here!  When the campaign launches we'll only have the three tiles from Core Pack:A, and the exclusive KS:1 tiles available.  Whenever we unlock another Core Pack, I will also unlock another exclusive KS tile for you to snatch up!  I am fairly confident that we are going to smash through almost every stretch goal I have planned.
      Core Pack:A Random Layout with KS Tile:1  With the exception of the Stalac-Packs, note that every terrain piece in TerraScapes is double-sided. The following graphics depict both the tops and bottoms of every piece and are not separate pieces offered with the packs.  The sizes listed are in terms of tile height.  So a Size 2 piece is two tiles high.  A Size 3 piece is 3 tiles high.  
      Please Manage your Pledge if you would like to add-on any pieces.  A survey will be sent after the Kickstarter has concluded for you to list which add-ons and options (like paint schemes) you would like.  All shipping charges will be handled by a Third Party Pledge Manager after the Kickstarter as well.  You will have until December 1st, 2017 to update your Pledge using this Pledge Manager
      3 Core Pack:A tiles and the first Exclusive KS Tile:1 As each set of new tiles and accessories are unlocked we will journey deeper into what TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos has to offer any story.  During this campaign, your very pledges will move a group of adventurers through the deep, exploring the sets that you unlock.  Our heroes fate will depend upon your support!  When the campaign ends, our adventurers will either perish or succeed in escaping these deep Caves & Grottos! 
      Core Pack:A, KS Tile:1 and Rocks & Wells Pack:A  
      Rock & Wells Pack:A contains four Size 1 Risers  
      Stalac-Pack:A contains two Size 2 Risers  
       
      Core Pack:B Random Layout with KS Tile:2
