What KS are all the ledges from?
Most are KS2, cavern. Currently sold out in the web store but I believe restock is happening this September. Also, KS6 has MANY new ledges not yet displayed in this thread.

We believe that Negative terrain builds need more preparation than most as it will be difficult to move your terrain tray after you have started your build.
Whyzzat? The pieces should all have magnets.
not if you didn't ask for magnets and in fact we think that magnets will make it harder to change builds on the fly.

So perhaps we should caveat with medium to large builds and especially with elevation such as Castle walls and Towers.

For example we have made a few Castle type builds and on a couple of occasions decided to put in a moat in after its been built, for water tiles it is quite straight forward.

For Terrain trays we have to put the tray 'under' existing parts of the build to make it fit. Obviously We could decide to have the moat the width of the tray, but with multiple width terrain trays that's not always possible.

Both the below builds had water tiles added after the build was started. Hopefully you can see it would be more hassle to try to insert Terrain trays into the builds.

If we had already decided upon a moat at the start of the build then terrain trays would have been easy to use and make everything else fit around it - no scale gate issues with terrain trays :)

Here’s a shot from today’s game. I used 4 water trays from KS 5 with grid overlays and put KS2 cavern floors, elevation pieces and “ledges” (not sure what they were called from KS2. I haven’t received my KS 5 ledges yet. I think it turned out pretty well. :P

Seeing these builds makes me glad I picked up extra ledges in addition to whatever comes in the DoD.

I successfully escaped buying terrain trays during KS5, but after seeing how truly awesome they look I am hoping they show up in the store soon for purchase...unless someone here has a few spares they're willing to sell ;)
Same here. I did pledge for some water trays in KS6 though. I am hoping as well to get a few in the restock.

@GardenDM and @nielsene, great looking examples of negative space!!
