Everytime I decide to do ice/underdoom/standard, I get frustrated because I won't have enough of the ice or underdoom to do "cool" builds. So, then I start thinking... "why bother?"SpaceMonkey wrote: ↑Mon Nov 12, 2018 2:15 pmI was glad to see so much traction in this thread, and appreciate all the feedback. I hadn't chimed back in yet as I'm still creating and re-recreating various spreadsheet combinations, and am still undecided. Again I'm not sure if posting the below is beneficial, but here we go.
I think a big deciding factor will be if I want more than one paint scheme for the cavern sculpts or notThis rings so true to me. Have you decided yet?
If I want 3 paint schemes, I'll have to do them all myself as with my double dreadhollow and other add on wants, I can't do a painted Caverns Deep pledge. If I stick with my current unpainted caverns deep pledge, plus lots (and lots?) of extras, I get 1487 total pieces to paint. But I get everything, and can (eventually) pick and choose what gets painted in what.
If I can excise the Ice and Underdoom paint schemes (though I love them both), I can go for AE1-11, full 12, DHx2 and still lots of other stuff in 3 different ways:
- All painted: AE1-11, Enc 12 in Cavern Paint, 1.75x Dreadhollow, Forest Banks, misc pieces (some unpainted like crystals). 1064 pieces, about $250 more than CD unpainted above.
- Mix: AE1-11, 12, misc all unpainted, 1.75x Dreadhollow plus banks Painted. 1213 pieces, same $$ as initial CD plus option.
- All unpainted: Same as Mix, just unpainted. 1213 pieces, $600 savings.
So still completely undecided But hey, maybe I'm slowing working through this the right way? Still a week to go.
- Or cut some Misc packs, and do all painted AE1-11, Enc 12 in Ice, Ice Starter, Ice Floors and Passages, 1.75 DH plus banks - $300 more than original, 1086 pieces.
So I cut it down to all standard and i have an incredible number of cool pieces to work with... and then I start thinking I could add in ice... and then maybe underdoom
Rinse and repeat.
I am pretty sure I'll end up with all standard. MAYBE mostly standard, some ice.
