Now it is funded.

Interesting stuff - and it comes painted! I do not see it as compatible with DF caverns, but could be useful as an above ground hills, rocky ground, shallow cave environment. I like that he seems to be doing his own unique thing and not copying what other companies have already done. Kudos to him!

I like them.

In general, I like all "big pieces" items, I find that they speed up the builds by a lot.

In fact, something I would be super happy about, is if one day DF makes a "big tiles" expansion, as in 4x4 pieces (not just floors, but also with walls in different configurations - like Den of Evil: Hellscape 2 pieces).

Unfortunately I am EU, and the shipping for this project is devastating (and doesn't even include taxes and VAT), so I'll have to pass...

I can definitely see that people who are really dedicated to a grid will find this kind of terrain less attractive.

The creator is aware of the timing, and has stated that if it doesn't work out, he'll try again later. These days, it seems impossible for timing to be "great" because there are so many KS's... CMON's always got something big out there... but getting stuck between DF and Reaper in span of two months is particularly bad.

I can't believe I'm thinking of backing another terrain KS already, but I really do like the look of these and how they come together; and I think they'll go well with DF.

Hmm, besides timing being bad for me, I like a grid and I feel the larger pieces reduce modularity. :( Pass for me. Thanks for the link though.
I think you are overlooking the advantages of this kind of terrain section especially in combinations with rivers and bridges.
I will save my money for F&I but I already have tons of this kind of terrain already.

This is bad timing. The stuff looks nice and fun but he should have got this out 3 months ago. Right now you have DF just ending and Bones 4 next month. I think people are wiped. The guy seems nice though and I hope he reaches his goal.

Some folks might be interested in checking out the following Kickstarter.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/18 ... n=7f6a30b0

They are some nice organic cavern tiles in resin, which can be put together in a variety of ways. I am interested in using these to augment my cavern tiles, and I'd paint them up in the same scheme.

The guy has a good sense of humor; he calls his resin "dorkenite".
