I'm in. These just look too great to pass up. Since it's two-sided, I've asked the creator for a two-paint-scheme option with each side painted a different scheme (caves/earth, earth/lava, etc)
I would hope that he doesn't decide to go with the idea of a different paint scheme on the other side. It's my reasoning that it would kill the modularity of the design in this instance. His videos show, quite clearly, how much more configurations you can get out of flipping the pieces over and if their painted a different colour scheme then you lose that as a feature. In my mind, it's just not equivalent to the benefits of a simple 2x2 tile being stone on one side and dirt on the other.

Edit: I re-read and realized you were talking about an option that backers could choose. That'd definitely work so that those who didn't want it could not opt into it.

Now, that's some elevation...

I backed it. Looking at negative builds as well, for fantasy, pulp, and pirates. Think these will be a great compliment to my DF caverns.

It has a great design and are really modular caverns.
An awesome job without a doubt.

However I won't support it : WHERE ARE MY SQUARES !
Without it I'm totally lost.
No ...
If you get them unpainted you could probably paint in a faint 1" pattern...

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.

If this was made of Dwarvenite or even Bones I would be all over it.

I really want DF to do more 2x2 Caverns sculpts, do advanced builder cavern sculpts and some big sculpts such as a cave entrance.

I can see using these in large caves but I really prefer Dwarvenite.

I think I will pass on this one also. I am not sure I would extensively back another DF cavern KS, so not gonna go for this one.

To be honest, this looks beautiful. Grid-fans likely will be turned off, but it's nothing that can't be solved with a ruler or a marked, flexible piece of string or plastic. Painted option is about a 60% premium over unpainted. These sculpts would look amazing with some negative-space builds, like a printed mat or even some DF terrain trays.

It's actually kinda hard to tell, assuming all SG are reached, what a 1-of-everything looks like ($590 unpainted pledge) as far as table coverage. If I were to back (and I don't think I will, for various reasons), I'd really like to see that representation displayed either on a still shot or a video.

International shipping may be a really big factor in final cost, so be warned.
