There are indeed lots of pieces involved in this very modular Sewer Set...about 14 so far....may need to break it up into 2 sets...but it is really looking good....won't be available till early next year I'm afraid...don't buy any sewers before then, believe me, this will be the sewer's to end all sewer's....even some Rat-men involved...

If only we could spin cast inexpensive plastics like trollforge does

Thorshammer,

I think this unfortunately just can't be happening. With such an elaborate Set (with maybe 12 different cast pieces?) to come, DF would loose money to make the 12*$10000 molds necessary. This is a $120 000 investment! When you think that DF perhaps sells at most 1000 per year of a specific specialized Set (You should know that only 1500 Sets of the limited edition Sets were ever produced and that only 1 sold out in the last 10 years), selling them $120 a piece would only cover the costs of the molds, not the production costs nor any kind of profit to make such an enterprise feasible.

For pieces in PVC/Dwarvenite to work, you need a small number of pieces and/or Huge number of Sets sold. Next on the Dwarvenite list is Game Tiles Passage and Caverns, unfortunately not sewers. Sewers is NOT as appealing to mass market as the stone walls we've seen with the Game Tiles.

I cant wait to see more of the sewer set. Here is hoping for ladders going up to street level.

How about green slime pools. Nothing like a green slimey sewer.

The sewer piece looks really neat. Hopefully you will give us a few months to recover from this one. I dont really want to sell my car to get more dwarven forge sets right now...

Look an awful lot like a sewer corner with walkway next to the wall and gutter/waterway in center (away from wall) with (possibly?) pipe hole and maybe a grate (not yet added)?
