And BTW, let\'s take a moment to appreciate the Cavern Passage piece.

There was some question as to whether the U-shaped profile of a passage could be done in Dwarvenite, given the hard molds required. I\'m seeing a very subtle slope to the inside of each opposing wall on that piece, which allows the molds to slide free once the piece sets. Very nice technical design work on Stefan\'s part to make that work, not to mention the aesthetic value of the sculpt.

Actually, let\'s mention the aesthetic value of the sculpt. The detail is gorgeous and the scoop in the top of each wall, interrupted by points, lends room and a dynamic quality to what could have been a rather boring and cramped piece. It stands out but doesn\'t stand apart.
Favorite Pieces: Chasms, 45 Degree Passages, River & Lava Banks, Ledges, Large Curved Walls, Elevation Arch

Those \"toffee\" beta pieces look very intriguing and \"tasty\"! I hope we get to unlock them all, or some version of them, and more! It\'s been an exciting ride so far.

Just like the first DF Kickstarter, I know things are always subject to change, but I am VERY excited about the teased/leaked pics (big thanks to kitenerd for posting)! I have the Cavern & Cavern Passage set, but never got around to picking up the expansions (crazy things happen to your priorities when you get married and have a kid). I think its great that I\'ll be able to finally get some of those pieces (and some cool new ones) into my collection without breaking the bank.

I am very happy with what I have seen so far. Well done. I will have to say some of the unfinished parts are some of the best and most desirable.

Did someone say \'Toffee\'?

Work away... we have faith in you... I\'m just salivating at all the upcoming goodness!

The serpent entrance is magical, an instant must have item!

Please talk to the boss about my plea for a \"Floor B\" add on pack - that piece is just begging to get water effect painted into it.

Seriously loving everything i have seen so far, at what level do we unlock patience?

many of the pieces in the middle picture are in-progress and were posted by accident....I made Jeff take it down...all the toffee colored pieces are still being worked on...disregard their current state tiny or major changes will be made to them...

I have been staying up waiting for 750K so i could see the next goal... Jeff refreshed it a bit early before turning in for a well deserved rest.

Map Maker Upgrade... OK, i\'m spoiled... i wanted more pieces!!!!

Thought i would end the day with three teaser photos in one place... can\'t wait to see all this stuff:
