What is your opinion on "water/lava" options in KS6?

What is your opinion on "water/lava" options in KS6?

I really want new water and/or lava tiles, and don't really care about new negative water/lava sculpts.

I really want both, but if I have to choose I'd prefer new water/lava tiles.

I would enjoy both, but I think the negative space would work easier for me and be cheaper. I'm getting some docks and eventually the Barge from Bones, so lots of open water and maybe rivers are what I'm after
Sounds like you backed the same stuff as we did :)
We bought a 6x4 terrain mat with a large river one side and an ocean on the other for this type of stuff.
Got a Pegasus Bridge Bolt Action set that needs a sizable river to cross, hoping DF can help us with that with the terrain trays from KSV or VI if the mats don't work out :)

Someone on these forums made some homemade negative space water pieces that looked amazing. I can't find the pictures if they even still exist but maybe the person who made them can re-post them (whoever you are). I am just saying don't underestimate how good negative space pieces can look.
EDIT - Or possibly any of this thread?

Yes, that link goes to the exact pictures I was thinking of. Amazing use of negative space. Thanks for posting that as I could not find the thread.
Those pictures with the cavern lake are exactly why we need negative space terrain trays - those builds are fabulous btw.

tiles for streams, small rivers and ponds, negative space terrain trays for anything bigger is what we want to see :) with the same for lava.

We also like to see modular water and Lava falls so you can have a 4"+ fall.

AAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGG!!!
Got all 19 pictures loaded, then went back in to add text and all the pictures timed out before posting. Something that seems to happen on the change of the hour. It's happened before and really pisses me off.
Sorry, I'll try again later.

I want both, but for the negative space pieces, I would like them to look more like the resin water tiles if you just cut off the water portion. I like something that slopes down and is not an abrupt edge. KS2 chasm pieces look very repetitive and also don't work that well as a water edge. They are also very small so it takes a TON of them to do much. I want some longer 1x4" (and not perfectly straight) and maybe even some 2x4" so that there is space to make them more irregular and still slope down to the edge.

Is this what you are mentioning?
If so, I'll post more later tonight, because I have other ideas to add to the water tile discussion.

I agree that the negative space stuff is done pretty well.

The only negative space stuff that I would argue for would be 4" sloped blocks that could be used for the beaches of large lakes and rivers; 4" so that the angle can be gentle enough to allow miniatures to stand on it without needing anything special.
This sounds good too, I would not mind this stuff for my underdark games...you guys are just trying to make all my new wipeaway mats useless...next you will be asking for trees and grassy knolls and such...oh wait, you already have... :D

Could sloping “beach” tiles be sculpted with a thin edge to overhang cavern floor tiles for a better transition?

I was unable to vote because.

I really want both. No compromise. I want both period!

To abandon the KS2 style water tiles would be a slap in the face to loyal customers.

To not do negative space water with new chasm pieces and shoreline pieces would be a waste of the what came out in KS5.
Yep.
