Really nice blend of pieces, Oldent!

I also like the floors and steps that you made. I have 2 sets of Cat 1's (plus a single Cat 2 in the mail), and I'm starving for floors.

I think I have 2 of each. I have never needed more - but I use Catacombs and most of the other special sets only as parts of a larger dungeon, never as a stand-along large dungeon. In other words, players don't get to a Catacomb via a long set of Catacomb corridors. I use normal dungeon or cavern for that.

This works for me. In fact I even use KS6 that way, bought very little of the basic sets (a bit too little in fact, I need a bit more).

I agree when using the sets as part of a normal dungeon.

You may need more to follow a theme. This is one of the Zombie board game maps.

Image

Some effort is need for the doors to fit in the correct sections.

Image

This took three of the Inn sets because of the number of doors and corners.

Image

The corner walls are used as section dividers/rooms.

Image

The DOD temple will work well for this room too.

Image

The custom sections were created with both Hirst Arts and 4 bot Industry molds.

Image

There are no advanced builder parts for catacombs so I created my own from 4 bot cast .

Image

Mixing the tile styles helps them blend with different sets.

I believe the plain corners are often more useful than the LED corners.

I will say with just the 2 C1s I've had for a little while now I've gotten some really cool builds out of them, I can only see the 2 C2s adding to it in a very positive way. I'll have to see if I end up often with odd pieces out, but I don't think that'll be the case.

How many sets is about right of Catacombs sets 1 and 2 for a party's evening stroll? After I ordered the 2 of C1 and 2 of C2, I saw Law's post that the ratio should really be 2:1 for C1:C2. (Ugh)

My logic was that C1 has been in the store a while but I think the C2 are overstocks from pre-orders. That's why I grabbed 2 of them now.

I agree that two to one is generally a good idea except that I use more of the square corners than the round. If you can not get the sold out corners any other way you need at least two of c2.
Once these arrive I'll have 2 of each type. Unfortunately the floors and corner pieces are all sold out at the moment but as you mention I am getting two sets of Cat 2. I would rather get additional pieces that I need through the store but I don't see any word of when those two accessories will restock. It does look like opinions vary on whether C1 or C2 is the backbone of the Catacombs series but I am getting that they both were solid additions to the DF line.

First off though I think will monitor this thread and play with the coolness that I have coming and see for myself.

I previously got 2 C1s and today I'm getting 2 C2s plus 1 Altar and 1 Tomb. I think this will be nice with the 2 C1s which I really like.
What I need is some DOE passages and rooms and a Cavern Lake!

My theory is; More is always better... ;)

Have you seen the 4x4 floor tiles (sold out right now) and 6" LED walls (now in stock and very cool 8-) ) in the Classic Resin Sets - Accessories section?
https://shop.dwarvenforge.com/collections/accessories - The second row is all Catacombs additions.

Thanks for the heads up on a possible restock pop today Michelle! Totally scored two sets of Cats 1 AND Cats 2 today.

I was SORT of on the fence until I saw that catacombs build UNDER a city. /Opens Wallet - Just take it, take it all.
This was the temptation that also got me hooked on Resin. Bought one Catacombs 1 set, soon followed by another C1 and a C2.

Now, a few years later, I've snagged two Woodlands and am starting to build a small Den of Evil collection. Not sure if there's anything else in resin that will tempt me (RoTA?), but glad I picked up these sets since there's nothing quite like them in Dwarvenite.

Welcome to the addiction, part 2. ;)
