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.

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?

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.)

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

Hmmm that is disappointing.

The idea from the discussions and pictures we had before was that they matched pretty well, but that there were some extra highlights that made KS6 nicer BUT still integrate well with KS2.

Can't wait to see what you post for pics. Mine are awaiting pick up at the UPS store. ;)

IMO, the reality is that over time (several years now) and space (that big blue thing out west called the Pacific), there is bound to be some differences between early KS paint and current KS paint schemas. One would hope that would not be the case, but unless the factory has had zero turnover in paint staff, consistent paint color/match, and has in hand detailed procedures, samples, how-to guides, etc., the variations are bound to show up.

I'm a one-man-in-house (mine) factory paint crew and even I have difficulty matching stuff I did years ago...doesn't help that I keep scattered records of what I used and which steps had which paint. :o

So, it's unpainted for me - all the way and then some.

Dwarven Forge should really stop selling this idea. Their in-house resin master sculpts used for Kickstarter promotion might be painted by experts, but everything that comes from their overseas factory is painted by run-of-the-mill factory workers. It’s passable, and usable, but far from “expert.”

Much like “free” stretch goals, it’s inaccurate at best and dishonest at worst.

They could call the "free" stretch goals as Value Added Stretch Goals, but it might confuse Europe. ;) :lol:
