I figure that the lava stuff was developed for Wildlands since it fits the motif and then it fell off due to there not being room. With DF already saying they will be pushing the boundaries on KS7, it will be epic! I do quickie battles outside with just a battlemat and a few rocks and trees, but I have also had epic battles outdoors that took hours to resolve. I expect to be all-in on Wildlands.

Unfortunately that is a bit of my thinking too. Lava looks cool, but how much do I use it?
To be fair, I think that can be applied to a lot of potential DF sets outside of caverns and dungeon. Heck, even with Wildlands, I'm not sure how much I'll buy in (will wait and see of course) because even though I do use a lot of outdoor settings in my games, the outdoor settings don't feel as though they need as much DF stuff to get right. They are good for the quick, random encounter, etc. In other words, a quick sketch on the battle mat does well enough.

Ultimately, we end up buying DF simply because its so freakin' cool. The good news for me, as somebody who came to DF very late (DoD and a smallish pledge at that) if I do end up passing on KS7, it will give me that much more money to spend on the other sets as I build my collection up. :)

All in all, great update! Will be very interested in checking out the hellscape KS!

Assuming we hit some SG's there will also be some of the new pieces offered in standard caverns paint to expand your Caverns Deep collection.
Sure, that’d be nice... but the alternate paint scheme we really need is a lava-meets-ice-caverns theme, titled

I own no lava terrain.

To be brutally honest in pictures of the resin Hellscape Set it always looked more like melted cheese than lava to me.

And the Dwarvenite Lava would still be repainted water tiles even if it had a supper paint job like shown in KS2 but in pictures the actual factory paint job reminds me of pizza sauce on top of cheese.

I do not use lava encounters often but I am interested in KS6.66 because it looks like it might be so much better looking based on the pictures and the work done on the Coal pit from the LED Illuminated Floor pack and I am not a LED lover.

So I am looking forward to adding some Lava

I'm really looking forward to the Lava centric kickstarter. I posted a thread a few weeks ago about updating/modifying some existing sets and most of it was about expanding the lava options. Hopefully this kickstarter will have some similar ideas.

I'm also glad that we have some notice on it only being a 2 week kickstarter. Likewise I am glad we know that we have some time before Kickstarter 7. I didn't buy much from Dreadhollow, though in fairness I haven't spent a whole lot on any of the kickstarters (I think I have spent more on DoD after the kickstarter than during the kickstarter), but more lead time is more savings time.

Overall very happy for updates and information.
