How do you feel about how the different color paint schemes coalesce?

Well, my KS2 and KS6 pieces all came unpainted, so I matched them as closely as I could to the resin. that being said, the resid pieces really do not have a consistent paint scheme. But, we had been discussing in another thread, that a cavern dry brush (with Erin's addition of a little yellow) on the resin seems to make them match the others (and each other) a lot better. I did a lot of mine when I filled in the bow tie slots.

Ok, after having completed my project of placing a set up of combined resin, KS2, and KS6 on the table, my conclusion is that I need more floors. Lots and lots of floors. I ended up running out of floor pieces after having used about 5/6 of my resin and a little more than half of my combined KS2 and KS6 pieces.

Now, I could use some terrain trays for negative space, and avoid having too few floors, but I would prefer to use them in conjunction with elevation pieces.

Floors seem a bit hard to get in KS6.
A little, but I think the 4" floors that will be available with 6.66 may make up a little for it. I pledged for a couple of those to try them out, one set in each material.

Universal 10-11 Pack has 9 standard 2x2 floors in it (plus other good stuff), but seems unlikely to be a regularly stocked item for the store.

I find I often need other types of floors, or run out of what I want for specific setting. It is a hard battle to balance having all you want, vs all you will likely use. Floors are pretty versatile so you are likely to find myriad uses for them. I end up using some of the mountain floor 8x8 tiles on occasion for urban builds since I have to draw the line on how many castle version 8x8's one can fit in the storage drawers.

Beautiful build.
Thanks! I did end up at least ordering a box of KS2 floors for now, just to hold me over (or that is my excuse, anyway...)

We have ordered from the store a couple of times and the shipping and then VAT is a back breaker which is why we get all that we think we need in the KS.

While we would like more escarpments and trees, we can more than cope with what we have and will wait until we see what is in KS7 before raiding the store.

Rabbit, I've been tempted by escarpments and cliffs. They should work really well for 'fronting' my cheep-cheep-cheep pink foam 2" fillers. But I have to get KS6 and 6.66 before I plunge for more. If Spousal Unit sees the Small Whale check Jay has got for KS6, she might be a tad unhappy.

Escarpments would do that perfectly :)

Given that shipping in the US is miniscule compared to the RoW you could try spreading out your buys so there are a few small checks rather than 1 big one.
My wonderful wife was a project engineer at a major US Company. She never had a project come in over budget. When our Youngest Offspring was predicted to arrive on my birthday, she delivered on time. I'm afraid that is a forlorn hope, Rabbit!
