I liked the idea of these and considered them till the last day of the KS. The shapes are pretty cool, but now it looks like the texture is smoother than a typical DF cavern sculpt with that base coat on. Wonder if the finished drybrushing will result in a completely different look. Can't wait to see the finished product. ;)

Also notice that the stalagmites/stalactites are not very detailed. Hope those skinny ones are reinforced with wire or something. They look quite fragile if the resin is at all brittle. :|
It is not very brittle as resin goes. Dorkenite ;)

I only have one set.
The two side paint idea is interesting. 8-)

Cool.

Thinking of doing mine in:

a) two tone theme, one side my brown/tan cavern, other side ocean sea bed/aquatic floor, with maybe added GS mods for attached coral, etc.

b) half and half in the two themes, with same scheme both sides

c) some combo of a and b

I need to get hands on first to see if option a) is feasible.

I only have work space for 1/3 on the work table :cry: I will paint the under side in a few hours. I washed the resin in soapy water and vinegar. I primed it black and let it dry over night. I used a Glidden base coat to match the base color of DF

I had a gallon mixed ,Alpine trail.

I pledged for one of everything unpainted.I will likely use a lot of the sets on a mat with my boats.

This will make a very nice island.
It arrived. Washed and primed black :D This disrupted my paint schedule. Its is allover the kitchen and all my work space. I promised my self I would not do this again :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :shock: ;)
Nice! Waiting patiently (kinda sorta) for mine to show...

I pledged, got nothing as of now.
But It seems he's just very late, I'll be waiting for it.
