I appreciate all the advice, thank you to all.

I'm sold on the idea I will never use them. But I'll probably keep them just for "future resell value" :( Just means I have something else to store that I don't really want...

To be fair to Talistran, those pictures of the minis in the passages aren't on squares; they are taking up multiple squares at once, and if you use the grid in combat, it can be an issue. My group uses the grid, but we're pretty loose about it.
I forget that many people play on a grid. I don't so I tend to forget that others do. I use them to get an idea of how far away things are but no one has to stand in the middle of a square and move square to square. I could see how it would be less useful if you play grid-based combat. I don't even care if there is a grid at all but I know a lot of people do. What one could do is use the center line between the two squares as the center of an imagined grid square.

I'd hang onto the passages - they take almost no storage

they are a good solution when you are in a pinch, but take practice to get in and out of

i like them but am still on the uphill of the learning curve

rooms are better than true passages

I can see the utility of building passages using only flat floor tiles without walls. For sure I can see how things will look awfully squeezed/cramped with 5' wide passages and tall walls on either side.

William,

Below is were I did a small write up about the sewer floors.

https://www.dwarvenforge.com/forum/view ... =34&t=7598

Worked better than superglue. And yes the floors are fused forever. And now that they are painted you really can't tell.

I should one of these days take pictures of them for you guys....

Flurry of Questions...
Was it just standard PVC pipe solvent, that binds the pieces together?
Did it work as well as superglue?
Are they now fused forever?

Gluing that much must have been a lot of work.

Hmmm,

I can't tell you what your game group will like. I agree with animesensei in that in the aftermarket it will be harder to sell without the walls.

My group preferred full squares vs the 1/2 squares. I ended up buying 16 sewers and many sewer floors for my group. With pvc glue I was able to glue larger floors to build with.

I am not sure how the new walls will work with the minis. With the sewer design the curved walls helped with the weapons and arms.

My 2 cents.
