Sounded like around the end of the month when I asked Suzy today.

They did not have an exact date yet.

I know Stefan has said previously that the resin water has to have the PERFECT humidity and temperature for it to cure correctly. With all of the recent issues I'm assuming they thought they had it down and it didn't work with the last batch and cost them a lot of money in replacements.

Cavern set in resin may be. Water sets it's no, no more and never.
I don't quite understand why this is must be a never. Ebay prices show that there is some fair demand for the resin water. Is it that they cannot find any manufacturer that can make it up to the proper standards? Weren't the earlier sets fine? What changed? Or would it just cost too much to get it done at a high standard now? I can understand that if they had to double or triple the price of the resin water, which puts it in the same ballpark as Ebay, then we might as well just get it there.

As I told you in another topic, here's your annoucement :
Envoyé : lundi 17 octobre 2016 17:32 À : Richard Richard Objet : Dwarven Forge Restock

Hi Richard,

We are expecting a restock on the Narrow Passage Set and the Open Water Set in late November of this. (dwarvenite)
I 'm going to buy one of each painted of course.
We do not have a restock date for the Village Sets, but we will be sure to inform you when we do.
Sad - it had to be my christmas present- ... so no village this year.
The Cavernous Lake sets will no longer be available - we had too many problems with that set and we have decided to discontinue it. We do not have any plans to restock the resin Cavern sets at this time, but it is possible that in the distant future we will release a limited restock.
Cavern set in resin may be. Water sets it's no, no more and never.
Many of the Dwarvenite Cavern sets are currently available, although some of them are in transit and should be available within the next few weeks.
Just 1 or 2 week to wait.

Maybe colored dwarvenite (ie not dungeon grey)
I'm not sure if it would be clear enough. The bits I had seen appeared more distorted than water would be. It might work though. I want to get some of the clear cavern sets eventually and paint them with gel or stain glass paints to make lava-scapes that I can light from below for a really awesome glow.

If nothing else having an announcement telling us if the restock is pre or post black Friday would be helpful.

Off topic.

I wonder if a two part Dwarvenite water piece could be done.
Solid on the bottom and colored translucent on top.

If so it might work great for the future water environments, heck the top could come in lake/river blue or murky swamp dark green.
I don't know how practical and/or affordable it would be to do this, but I have asked about the same thing in the past! If it can be done that would be awesome. Otherwise I suppose I'll have to content myself with finding some way to create a better illusion of depth over the dwarvenite.
