To each his (or her) own. I also loved the mosaics but this less ornate, and more affordable, scheme is MUCH more flexible from my point of view. It's easier to render additional colors rather than take a chance obscuring and possibly damaging the beautiful, more expensive ones.
I hope to order three sets but will have to see how much the bosses have appreciated my efforts over the last year !!!
The only thing I'm surprised about, and somewhat saddened by, is the lack of any particular doors or even arches to more enclose / define the spaces. Stefan, what are your plans for the future releases to this environ ? I think slide-in archways similar to the wall pieces would be fantastic !!
BTW, I love the little rotating secret door / medallion detail !!! These are the details that got me into DF in the first place (the individual Master Maze Wall with Secret Door was my first purchase ... to use as a diorama base for a miniature) !!!
Double doors are included in the next ROTA
Oh...and there is also a SUPER SWEET Ruined Entrance piece -- that is probably my favorite piece EVAR!
Pics! When do we get to see some photos of this SUPER SWEET Entrance?!?
I know I am in the minority on this, but I haven't been overly excited about this set. I would have like to have seen a more ruinious section. The wall with the hole in it is awesome, but would have like to have seen some half-wall sections, broken/shatter pilliars etc, partiicularly since the sets color was reduced from the bright mosaic to the darker tones. The addons may still sell me on this set though. The same thing occured with Den of Evil sets, so I am sure Stefan will draw me in with his incredibal work. The detail on the set is very nice though, I can't argue that at all.
