The small add ons will likely get stretch goals added to them over time, but I agree they seem expensive.

I figured the stalactite pack was a low price since it is cheaper than Reaper's pack per piece, and the camp pack I figured was cheap because it is has an LED fire. 

 

Unless you are comparing the painted DF to unpainted stuff. 

 

But your mileage may vary.

The DF Stalagmites (both the KS6 pack and the older KS2 pack) are in a completely different league from the Reaper Stalagmites. DF's stalagmites are massive solid beasts - they make the Reaper stalagmites look like soda straw formations; piece count alone is inadequate to describing the value. I would highly recommend those packs to anyone who wants stalagmite terrain.

 

(Note: the KS6 stalagmite pack includes corner pieces which are mostly designed to liven up wall corners; if you're laying out stalagmites on a mat, the set has a bit less value IMHO...)

Agreed on the stalagmites. That said the Dwarvenforge minis are nothing compared to Reaper quality. :)

 

Not that impressed with the whole underdoom stuff.

Yeah, Underdoom mostly feels like the same set, in a different, incompatible paint scheme, needing transition pieces. The floating rocks are cool, but not worth that hefty price of admission.

 

Sysuul fit naturally in with KS5 pieces, unlike this. If they offer the crystal caverns in normal paint scheme, might pick up some of that, but the rest....

 

I hope the forest pieces are more of a draw.

I think the camp pack is the steal of the kickstarter.  $10 gets you 3 beds, an equipment pile, and a functioning LED campfire.  So basically you get the LED campfire for what, $5 if you're assessing costs of the purchase?  Find another LED campfire for $5 that isn't a tea light.  :P

I just got the chance to check things out more in depth. I am kind of surprised at how little I care about the Underdoom encounter. It is nice, but nothing I am going to go out of my way to purchase.

      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

      About
      This project is to fund the production of a set of cast table top gaming terrain pools.
      This is a continuation and expansion of this line.

      Dental Stone pieces are available as painted and finished or unpainted and unfinished pieces.
      Here are a few examples of the prototypes:
      50mm Blue, finished.  
      50mm Green prototype.  
      50mm Red Prototype.  
      25mm  
      More 25mm Prototypes.
