Caverns for me. The water effects are inspiring. they can create magic with almost every other DF resin set (ok, I've admittedly not found a synergy yet with Hellscape).

Caverns for me. The water effects are inspiring. Yes, they can make the classic cavernous lake, but they are also tranquil ponds, city harbors, and mountainous rivers. They are highly useful in and of themselves, but they can create magic with almost every other DF resin set (ok, I've admittedly not found a synergy yet with Hellscape).

Well... at slightly more than $1000 US a piece, I would sell mine for sure!

Holy moley. I have a few sets of those.

And yet I still don't think I'd sell them. 😂

For me Catacombs are my favorite because they are highly detailed and very useful. They are detailed without being overly specialized. I don't have a ton but they mix in well with KS1 and soon KS2. I like them for any dungeon area with a lot of undead. They are easy to work in for not just Catacombs but crypts, tombs, lich lairs, or an undead area in almost any dungeon.

It is one of the reasons I would love to see Catacombs in dwarvenite. I would love to be able to do larger dungeons with Catacombs. If they do make dwarvenite Catacombs they need to be in that same style. I don't want new less detailed Catacombs. I want they to mesh well with my resin Catacombs.

I also like the resin Woodland set. I know it is not perfect but it is beautiful. Nice for when you need a Fae or wood elf encounter.

Master maze is awesome and there’s no doubt that it’s more beautiful than the dwarvenite dungeon, even ks V

But in this poll you’re asking it to compete with highly specialized very detailed environments like catacombs in Realm of the ancienta and hell scape which have gorgeous amount of detail and flourishes that just aren’t on the basic bread-and-butter pieces in master made and it’s never going to win that competition

Don't have a Dog in this race - no DF resin :( - so not voted

But one question - do DF make new resin sets anymore ?

We ask this as we don't agree that Dwarvenite (or Gorgonite) is DF's workhorse material as we think it is their their only material moving forward.

So resin has not so much been relegated as replaced and only existing, 'hard to get', collectable sets are available.

We fully expect DF to do the equivalent of resin sets in Dwarvenite using different sculpts so to compliment those resin sets that people have as opposed to replace them.

Ok maybe that's hope more than expectation. But we are hoping to see catacombs in KSVI :)

I like the master maze dungeon the best. I just really like the cobbled stone look better than the newer tiles bricks look. All of them are great though.

I find it interesting that the most popular Dwarvenite line is dungeons at the moment, and at the same moment here in the Resin poll, not a single vote has been cast for dungeons.

I think this means a couple things:

1) Many of us have Dwarvenite dungeons we use a lot so they are our favorite. Not nearly as many people use Resin dungeons.

2) Dwarvenite has turned into the work horse and Resin is now delegated for special, unique, and "pretty" environments. It seems people are discussing functionality and use on the Dwarvenite poll, and aesthetics (for the most part) here on the Resin poll.
#1 I did not get any KSI dungeons because I had more than enough Master Maze.Years ago my finances did not allow me to purchase enough to have what I thought I needed so I do not have ROTA.During KSII I added a few sets to add to my caverns.
KSI is my least favorite DF product.Dwarvenite/PVC like Reaper Bones has saved this hobby by making it affordable to more people.
#2 I do not think 21 votes is enough to draw a conclusion. The question was favorite not how or how often we use it.

I would point out that I use CBS streets in most of my above ground builds

The CBS roads and alleys are often the only DF products on the table.
