As I'm looking over my pledge options, I just want to let DF know this KS is for me, the PERFECT size. It feels robust enough to have a wide variety of pieces, is small enough not to be confusing, has options for large and small pledgers, and is within my budget. My only issue is the AHBL pledge level, as it's a head scratcher for me why someone would need two of everything. But I'm not obligated to pledge for it for any pieces (like the resin ones), so it doesn't really affect me.

Thank you for listening to our feedback regarding smaller kickstarters. I hope to see more of these in the future, especially if you can do them on an annual basis. Two of these smaller KSs in a year (like some have suggested) would still strain my budget too much, but one is PERFECT.

Thank you.

I wanted to be able to make a circle with them, that's why I added the extra flame wall pack.
Good point, but in my games folks tend to use linear walls a LOT more than circular ones.

Dang Anime that pledge looks somewhat familiar, here is mine.

Third Circle of Hell - Painted 1 (reward)
Spouted Floor/Lava - Painted 1
Magma River Pack - Painted 2
Magma River Straights - Painted 1
Lava River Transition Pack - Painted 1
Lava Stone Banks Pack - Painted 1
Large Stone Banks/Lava - Painted 1
Banks Edging Pack - Painted 2
Spined Devils - Painted 1
Cerberus Warhound - Painted 1
DF Light Panel Seven Pack 1
Magma Flow Phantasmal Filter 1
Magma Flow Terrain Tray - Single 12x12 2
Spouted Floor/Std Cavern Paint - Painted 1
Large Stone Banks/Std Cavern Paint - Painted 1
Lava To Caverns Transition Pack - Painted 1
Lava Cave Entrance/Transition Paint - Painted 1
Spouted Floor/Transition Pack - Painted 1

It was a good thing I had a copy of the spreadsheet copy I had been playing with to remind me what I had pledged for. I figure the handful of fire walls I get already in the third circle will be enough since I already have about a dozen of the ones from Wizkids so I did not add that pack.

Here's what my current Hellscape pledge is shaping up to be. Nothing but the 3rd Circle is locked in yet. I have a lot of Caverns Deep coming and am trying to augment the caverns or have a stand-alone environment if necessary.

Any suggestions? (All painted. Color coded for usage grouping.)

1x Third Circle of Hell (Includes Infernal Cave Door Pack & Lava Passages Pack)
1x Lava to Caverns Transition Pack
2x Spouted Floor Transition Pack
1x Lava Cave Entrance (Transition Paint)

1x Magma River Straights
1x Lava River Transition Pack
2x Banks Edging Pack

2x Large Stone Banks - Standard Cavern Paint
1x Spouted Floor - Standard Cavern Paint

1x Wall of Fire Pack
1x Cerberus Warhound
1x Dreadportal

1x Magma Flow Terrain Tray Multi Pack
1x River Styx / Lavastone Terrain Tray Multi Pack

1x DF Light Panel 7 Pack
My plan is to make sure I have enough parts for the games I want to run.
I need floors for Massive Darkness.
I need magma river for LOTRs.
I need magma falls, volcanoes and banks for the pirate game.
I want the core sets for role play.
I also want lots of the bling to paint.
When I get the pledge manager I will figure out the best way to spend my pledge. I am under so I will add some more bling.

My advise is think about how you will use it them make sure you have enough. I think that is going to depend on the story you want to tell.I don't know the story so I really can't advise what will be best.

Good point on the power packs for the panels. Gotta have a lot of them, i think. If I were to get light panels I would want a power pack for each 3-4 panels, I think.

off the top of my head... There is only one power supply with the 7 pack... i am considering a 5 pack and a 1 pack. Then i will have 2... just in case i should need one... the length of the extensions might make a difference... but we dont have that info yet.

Otherwise it looks like an excellent selection. Spreadsheet sure would help if only someone could get that done!!!

1x Magma Flow Terrain Tray Multi Pack

1x DF Light Panel 7 Pack
This looks very similar to what I'm looking at. The main differences for me is
- no Light Panels
- 1 Mega Banks Pack Lava
- 1 Mega Banks Pack CD
- 1 Mega Magma Rivers pack
- Dread Portal
- At least 1 maybe 2 Volcanoes (those things are cool!)

The Light Panels are cool but technology goes down in price and DF seems to go up in price. I'm playing the markets and buying more DF for my money in the KS. I also kind of want to make my own light panels that are magnetic.

Looks like a good grouping of pieces to me. You should be able to do just about any magma build you want.
