How about all of them?

The curled grid in the Curved Passage is ideal for cutting off at the halfway point, and I agree completely about needing end caps (which also make nice alcoves and closets).

And with three to five unique pieces, DF could put them all together in a themed pack.

What do you think look better? The wedge shaped "pizza slice" 45 degree turns or would you prefer a more "full tile" like the curves in the old sets? I think I would prefer the smooth / rounded turn.

Desperately need these for the Passage Sets:

45 Degree Passage Turns

I'll bring this back up for a potential Dungeon Tiles add-on, since the caverns version seemed to be popular in KS2.

A 45 degree passage turn (or two) would enable us to put standard passage pieces at a diagonal to the standard grid alignment. Although this can be done with large numbers of diagonal pieces, using standard passages gives us more complete squares to place miniatures.

Both pieces pictured are omnidirectional -- there is no need for "left" and "right" pieces. The first, smaller piece is much more versatile, as it can be placed anywhere except the corner of a room. The second, larger piece can only be placed at the corner of a room, or perhaps at a junction where two narrow passages meet.

I hope there is room (and time) for this idea in KS4.
