I like a lot of people do not want stuff that was offered in previous a KS. I have plenty from them. The store has them if people want them that is what a KS is for to pay for the making of the molds. What I want in new stuff to add to the other KS. I have gone up in my backing each KS starting from KS 1 with $1500 all the way to KS 5 with $7000. That is it I am caped out now and it will be hard pressed for me to convince myself to spend a lot on this KS.
Commas, people, commas! I spent a minute thinking "you like a lot of people? you like a lot of people who do not want stuff that was previously offered? did you mean to say you THINK a lot of people don't want that stuff, or did you meant to say you like THAT a lot of people don't... OH, you meant that YOU, LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE, DON'T..."

;)

Just funnin', hope that didn't come across as nasty.

I think DF team has definitely picked up on this thought. They've indicated that the new KS is going to have ways to get the fun bling without having to go deep on pieces you already have - and even without having to get full coverage of a big gaming table. You just want some awesome cool pieces? You'll be able to get just them -- they won't be the prize in the cereal box where you have to fill up on cereal first.

That said, there's always a chance SOME cool pieces will be kept as capstones for the die hard whales who've gone mega. But DF has heard from the fans who want to make sure the KS isn't just a bunch of basics in which you have to go ten boxes deep before you can get the really kewl memorable piece.

This is usually where we point out that the next KS is 6 not 2.5 - but that gets a little tiresome and we know that DF will provide a wicked set that will at least have most of the new unique pieces. I just hope they do it early so as to circumvent all the comments saying that they should do one.

Please note that this is a particularly polite post with not a single mention of moaning .........damn!
And this will be the first point where I specifically point out to you that it is not moaning when longtime collectors and enthusiasts politely express their wishes. I am glad that you have faith; I also have faith in DF in many things. And one of those things is that they listen to their customers.

And as one of those customers, who certainly isn't alone by the number of similar requests, I would appreciate it if my voice can be added to this board without you calling it "moaning."

I wish the best to you and your band of bunnies.

If you have further comment on this particular comment, I would appreciate a PM be sent so as to not distract from the rest of the conversation.
Ok fair point well made.

Had massive post explaining our point of view but decided to be less of a knob (a British word - funny trust us)

Me too. Part of it is cost, but the other part is that I don't need stuff to cover a 12' table. I don't have a 12' table, or a place to put one. Buying anything beyond what can fit in the 3'x 6' vault of my gaming table just seems like a waste.

Wow, that is a lot!!! I suspect the top pledge in KSVI will be ridiculously high like it was in KSV.
After all the talk, I REALLY hope that DF has a "Little bit of everything pledge" that isn't $3000+ dollars like last time.

You want a monster cavern with tons of extra floors, walls, and corners... COOL. I am sure that DF will have some monstrosity for you. But I am really desireous to not have to buy 200 new walls, 200 new floors, and 200 new corners just to get all of the new stuff. 10-20 of each will be plenty along with 2-4 of all the new cool stuff... add that to my existing 10 cavern sets and I'm set... without the $multi-thousand price tag please :)

I am getting perilously close to 5 figures for my total DF purchases KS and retail, including shipping. I will most likely go over in KSVI but I hope not by much. I am about 700 shy of 5 figures.

While I would love to get everything at the lowest price possible, I'm willing to spend what ever is needed to get everything in KS6.

But I also have 10 KS2 cavern sets and I really do not want more of any of those sculpts. I would be OK with some peices that did the same thing as KS2 tiles but were very different sculpts. In the end variety is what I want most for KS6 to add to my Dwarvenite caverns. Another straight wall tile may not seam exciting but having a different straight wall tile sculpt would surely make that straight cavern wall look more organic. Not to suggest that I will not be happy to see DF push the envelope, I am ready to see DF push caverns in ways I did not expect.


Basically bring it on DF.

Yep, a little of everything pledge with stretch goals would be cool.
