I was hoping they'd do some windows on the curved walls, so I could an 8" tower, but that looks great. As much as I don't want to spend time doing something and would rather pay, those look great for any walls I need to do. I guess I just got myself stuck on a having to make an actual hole first.
+1 on the window accessory, +2 if it doesn't use magnets.
+3 if it's held in place by a minor cantrip. :lol:

So many great ideas posted already but my .02 cents:

- Curved ramps for elevation
- Anything to span the distance between elevation points, i.e., wooden beams/planks, suspension bridge, downed trees, etc. (I realize KS5 is a dungeon motif and not caverns however they can be used in both)
- Non-cheesy cemetery set (envision this as an entrance to the Catacombs set) (probably for a later KS but throwing it in)
- Anything to tie into the Woodlands and Ice Caverns sets (probably for a later KS but throwing it in)
- Any mine set/motif pieces (I keep picturing the mines from the Baldur's Gate PC game that was overrun by kobolds)
- An epic dungeon entrance (something like the Hellscape large gate but one that can be used for regular dungeon pieces/sets)
- Pretty much everything Bookworm put in his earlier post.

Personally I'm not looking for character/monster figures however that is just me as I have over 20,000 WoTC and Paizo prepainted minis in my collection. (Yeah, they're as addictive as DF stuff...).

I think it is probably a good idea to repeat suggestions so that DF will have an idea of the demand.
To be fair that's what I thought I did :)
I thought I was agreeing with you :? I will try to stay on topic. There is a KS6 discussion going on.I would like to hear your ideas there too.
Like two old gits at the pub 'Whats yours?' 'about five past six'

KS6!! bloody hell already!? don't put that on the KS comment forum there will be a frenzy of moaning.
Might have to look in that thread though ;)

What I would like to see are mostly repeats of other suggestions,

While I like the idea of a mine railway and all the other great ideas, I'd much prefer the add-ons I outlined:
Moats
Ruins
Rubble
Stables
Lean-to

That's not to say I would not purchase other add-ons ;)

So here are two suggestions for next KS, but one would be for exterior walls on dungeon tiles and the other is for 4" and/or 6" round walls whether it's KS1 or KS5 or KS4 Towers.

Round Bookcases for 4" or 6" rooms -

Not sure who made these in the past, but I noticed them looking for Oldent's waterfall pictures, which I will post 37 of those later tonight.

A set of pillars in the KS5 style, with wide bases (or attached to floor tiles), for stacking purposes. (I know, I feel dirty just for thinking it.) To go on top, a 6"x6" square, a 6"x6" square with cutout for stairs, an 8"x8" square, and 6" or 8" radius circles with and without cutouts for stairs.

And dungeon elevation blocks with pillars and arch embellishments.

What's this thing you call "overtime"?
Haven't seen that word in over a decade... ;)
