Hi GoW, well, ironically, I've spent more money the less interested I was in the main topic of a kickstarter, the least in dungeons, then caverns, then cities, then castles. How logic is that? ok, the dollar getting higher and the euro lower has something to do, and the shipping costs going up too.

But yes, I've spent more in sewers, battlements and minis from KS3 than I spent in caverns, without taking any city pieces, and even more in Castle add ons than in KS3, ok, I took ramparts and a long walls add-on, and then some roofs, platforms, and some more.

Crazy...

Wow, I can't believe I missed this...

Hi, another dude from Spain, been collecting this stuff since... 2004 I think? love resin, but dwarvenite is very affordable (so may be we can lure more people in) and ridiculously durable so it's even easier to store.

Hope resin stuff keeps coming from time to time with exceptional sets like Catacombs, but dwarvenite is ok for most stuff (may be I say that because most of my stuff is already resin, so it could be possible I'm being kind of hypocritical here... sorry, it's unintentional).

Not very fond of the dwarvenite dungeon pieces when you put them beside resin (but love caverns and all it's variety). Anyway, thanks to KS1 I have a lot of extra stuff for big setups when I don't have enough resin dungeon sets (and it's neat to have new accesories like demon doors), and the stuff is great for carrying it arround for casual gaming in weekend escapades to country houses.

In KS3 I only took sewers, battlements and sidewalks to use in dungeon environments (and a ton of minis) but even so I spent much more than in KS1 and almost the same that in KS2 (which almost ruins me).

I'm trying to keep my expectations on check for KS4, as I know I will probably won't take castle stuff, but I expect to be interested in a gazillion add-ons. And I'm always happy to be able to fantasize about buying some castles and/or CBS... and is nice to have that stuff available on the store in case I lost my mind... or get a new house... but mostly in case I win the lottery...
Aarsthein, reviewing DwF EU for the first time. I didn't know you mostly stayed out of KSIII. Surprised me. I rather though you would be big on cities, for some reason.

I agree resin dungeon are much nicer..but the KSI stuff has a gritty, 'poverty-stricken' esthetic I have a sneaking like for. I have enough resin to do a decent medium dungeon. But now I use resin for the 'finer' parts of a dungeon complex; when players see the KSI they usually know they are getting into wilder terrain...and the sewers are a great layer above all the dungeons; so all this stuff has a place.

We have a scene running now on my 5x10 (foot, 1.7 x 3m, roughly) fly table that is four levels deep, but its not a trad dungeon leading down through sewers to dungeon to caverns...the top is a ruined castle (KSIII castle, mine aren't here yet - told DF Suzy she could ship me last) with a layer of previous dungeon adventurers' building next, then the rich and very nice bottom - done in ROTA. Keeps the players on their toes!

Hi there,

I´m from Spain, and I started to collect this Christmas. I´m struggling to get the resin sets ( cavernous mainly); but the cutest packs, like the cavernous passage, or River and Walls are very hard to find (and expensive XD).

Anyhow, I am very pleased with my little dungeon and I expect to start using it with Frostgrave soon.

Hi,
I am from germany and have been collecting since Stefans appearance on the game fair in Essen a lot of years ago. I have mostly resin sets, though I have been selling them lately because I more and more prefer Game Tiles, since they are more durable.
Still, there are some sets in resin I will never sell, for example all kinds of water sets, MBA, Catacombs, DoE and RotA.
I have taken part in all 3 KS and love this stuff. In the last one I put in more money than in the 1st 2 combined because I wanted a lot of houses, streets and of course sewers. I went in for all unpainted and am going to let my players help me with painting (it helps being the store manager of a GW shop and having a group of all table top gamers).

Hello from Spain! I also think polystone pieces are top, but dwarvenite is cheaper and children-proof so... I like them both.

I'm from Wales, UK. I love resin but have to admit the dwarvenite pieces fit together better and don't break when my 3 year old throws them about.
