Everything I've got right now is Dwarvenite. I like the look of some of the old resin sets, especially the Catacombs, but I'd like to know how well they pair with the dwarvenite. I've been working on my gameplan for the upcoming restock, and I'm trying to decide if I should leave room for some resin :)

Does anyone have any up-close shots of a resin piece next to a dwarvenite piece?

It is best to add a bit at a time.

The resin Inn set with DOD

OOP resin secret doors with DOD

The resin wall pivots on a pin.

The resin narrow passages are very similar to the current production.

I also make my own tiles. I have built a custom advanced builder set for Catacombs.

A few custom parts to help blend floor styles.

Has any progress been made on group ordering/shipping? I know DF was looking into it about a year ago.

OWWW!

Some numbers help quantify Euro Trog pain.

I won't tell Rabbit what my shipping on 4 boxes of RoTA was. I'd be charged in court for assising suicide.

It's worth it, RB..... I seem to remember a post by William full of bunnies hopping through RotA. It's a sign.

I don't know how I missed it, but I didn't realize RotA were currently in stock. Just grabbed one of each to fill in some missing holes in my collection. :)

I’ve been a resin snob forever, but just lately I find myself turning to the dwarvenite for the regular dungeon look. I was actually thinking of trading off my resin basic dungeon sets for unpainted dwarvenite sets of the same type. Thing is, I really like the my paint job on them.

I still prefer the resin cavernous look, as well as all the speciality sets, and the lake, river sets over dwarvenite. DoD really kind of made me do a double take on dungeons though. They did a fine job on that DFite.
Runeweaver, I went this way a long time ago and love it. The KS Dungeons in large numbedrs are my standard. I use RoTA, DOE, Chamber of Sorrows - all the dungeion variants - as special environments in a given dungeon. My players know the CoS doesn't mean the same thing every time, but they do know it signals a change. and a CoS stuck inside a small RoTA inside the KS dungeon can get weird enough to grab their attention.

THis also means I don't need nearly as much of any new stuff, like KS6. Its just a special environment in KS standard.

Are there more resin sets coming in the March restock? The list on the homepage only show Dwarvenite DoD sets.

No, what I was trying to say was I would like one more RoTA but I want to wait for the restock in March to see if there is anything from the Castle or what ever they get in that I can add to the order to make it one shipment.
