You could build your regular terrain over the light panels as well. There may be some bleed between pieced which you'd need to decide to live with or block out with appropriately placed terrain trays/construction paper/fabric/etc.

We thought we were going to need foam risers to go with the light panels we wanted, it was difficult to estimate our exact needs so added a few extra pounds to our pledge to cover it, adding if necessary in the PM if required.

But on further thoughts we realise that our main use is lava rivers on top of existing terrain (DF and others) and not embedded in. So there is no obvious way of adding light panels (no matter how cool they look).

So if we do not go the light panel route then we do not need any foam core risers, which is a complication and extra cost we will do without.

A bit of a shame as we think underlit lava rivers will look fabulous.

another option would be foam/rubber mats/pads here is a pricy one but only because it is from recycled materials, you could get cheaper versions https://www.amazon.com/CAP-Barbell-Inte ... th=1&psc=1

How in the world were the prices so off from the video to the pledge manager? I just rechecked the video and that is a MASSIVE difference. If I were interested in foam risers the video might put me off so hard I would not even look at them in the PM to see the realistic prices.
This was me. I looked at the PM all day (when I could) yesterday and never even looked at the foam risers because the price was so high in the video.

I did the same thing did not even look at them.

I gotta agree. I hadn't really looked at the prices in either but had the price math and comments from the forum her in mind while looking at things. The actual prices are much better. DF need to watch these things. If for some reason they changed the price--I don't think they did, I think this was a graphic mess up--they should communicate that.

With the banks mega pack price difference DF needs to be a bit more careful.

The prices on the PM are
$25 for the small 16 2x2
$25 for the large 4 4x4 and 4 8x8
$95 for the mega 32 2x2, 12 4x4 and 8 8x8

So there is a discount on the mega pack. You get an extra 4 4x4s and $5 savings over buying two small and two large packs. Rethinking on this one. Would be good to see a video of them in use before the PM closes.

Cheaper price would be good. They did mess up the banks set in the video.

I think the price was lower in the PM than the numbers used here from the video. I can check again but it was about 40% of those numbers, unless I totally misread them.
