No, they don't match the resin caverns either. I checked those too. I'll try to get some pictures tonight.

The drybrush is a lot darker brown than the old ones. I thought they would try to match KS2, and while they I guess kind of can, they are definitely a different color side by side. If I mix everything up maybe it will all blend together?
Does that mean they are a good match for the resin caverns? :?: :P :?: (I actively dislike KS2’s drybrushing, so I am encouraged to hear that KS6 is not identical.)

Ok so I forgot to take pictures, but for those of you that did get an early shipment, have you compared the new Caverns Deep pieces to the KS2 caverns pieces?

I’m hoping to receive some of the KS6 pieces before they close the pledge manager for KS 6.66. It might convince me to buy more pieces if I really like the new caverns pieces (I.e. trifecta, passages etc.(

Yeah, I haven't confirmed my KS6.66 pledge yet for that very reason.


Messing around with the pieces from the Summoner's Chamber convinced me to add a Lava Adv Builder Pack - I love the 4x4 convex curve, and those 1x1s are great problem solvers. But, yeah I didn't realize that until I had them in hand.
Thanks for the tip. I don’t have any 1x1 in my Hellscape pledge, so I need to look for a way to get sonme. I’m a little disappointed they didn’t put some in the floor pack.

That bright purple is not good :(

You could argue that the rest is OK, but there really should be a consistent paint job even if it does not exactly match the prototypes. As long as it is not consistent bright purple either.

Hopefully DF will get on top of the factory about this.

They may not like the different paint schemes but ultimately they signed up to it and should look to meet the requirements as any professional organisation would, or they don't get repeat business.

DF is too busy with Hellscape and Plaguestone right now:)

Different people are responsible for distribution so Hellscape and Plaguestone not getting in the way of distributing Caverns Deep :)

Yea I am more than capable of painting and I do a great job of it when I do. But I don't want to do it right now. I have a back log of things that goes way back to the 80s haha that still needs to be painted. I order a ton and I mean the top pledges in the KS, that is a lot of stuff to paint. I am more than willing to pay the extra money to have it painted. I just ask for a good paint job on it.

Maybe alternate paint schemes should be people painting at home? Lots of variety there, but kinda uneven quality.
That would definitely leave some untapped market though. Many of us only buy pre-painted. While I like the idea of painting my own stuff I don't have the time and have never bothered to develop the skill. One of the reasons I love DF is because I can buy pre-painted terrain. I admit I did not buy any underdoom in KSVI, but I may in the future and I did go in pretty far for KS6.66.

To be fair 95% of the Underdoom stuff i have seen looks great - but the bad pieces are REALLY bad

Still think alternate paint schemes should be separate KS's - simpler for DF, simpler for the factory - it does require patience from the consumers though and we are not a patient lot ;)
Or perhaps will ship later so the factory is only working on one paint scheme at a time. My guess is that having tons of employees painting hundreds of thousands of peices in multiple paint schemes is a QC nightmare for the factory.

Yep. Almost like Hellscape ;) Repaint of a lot of the KS6 pieces.
