You definitely need to buy more. Everyone always definitely needs to buy more.

Well, at least some people think so.

Interesting! I had a similar story as the original post: During KS5 I remembered my childhood and what I couldn't afford, back then. So I bought in with a bigger and bigger amount (ending with WAY TOO MUCH :D). and I am so much looking forward to playing with those tiles. But ... they will not be with me before April 2018. Therefore I couldn't sleep anymore during the nights and had to get at least a glimpse of what DF is, before. Fortunately (me being located in EU) dwarvenforge.eu offered a lot of Cavern pieces without to much shipping/taxes/etc. I had to decide and I had some quite similar thoughts to those that were posted in this threat. E.g: Two cavern basic sets, one extra floor set, one wicked set, one narrow passages set, some mushrooms and some ledges.
And I must say, as others said before, I am quite happy with the ledges, because I really hope that they work well with the terrain trays from KS5 and that I maybe do not need the cavern river stuff. But I did not use them so much for my dungeons so far. Same goes for the floor tiles, and there it is simple mathematics: With two basic sets you do not have enough walls to build them around all floor tiles in the floor set. So this was not a clever buy, I would say.
What I used a lot is the walls with holes that lead to a little burrows-like tile from the wicked set and of course the snake-eye entrance. And the secret-door-door. (I GMed an adventure at a German RPG-Convention this weekend -- with the caverns, and everybody was sooo impressed by the secret door :D )
Since this all wasn't the right proportions I decided to buy another basic set, some stalagmites, another narrow passages set and some elevation. Now It works perfectly for me. I can build an interesting dungeon with this for D&D -- or a big cave with some interesting features for Otherword Fantasy Skirmish. So now I am quite pleased.
"Quite" pleased. But still I think, one more basic elevation pack and a few more elevation blocks extra would do well in my builds. And of course: Getting the KS5 stuff soon. AAAARGH! :D

Seem I'm the only one who stay by it's to buy list. Sure I will add stuff to it each time a kickstarter come around, but that's it. To buy list almost done too, after one year-ish of breaking my wallet into this stuff lol...

Perhaps we should start a DF Addicts Anonymous Group?
I thought this is what the whole forum was!

Repeat after us ..... 'My name is Inigio Montoya you killed my father prepare to...' no that's wrong.

I'm the one who started the thread and after two months, ended up buying 2 basics, 2 varied, 1 floor, 1 lava, 2 water, and 1 narrow.
No idea if my attached picture shows up, but this is part of the sets I got that I used for a Battle Royal map this week.

Like the build :) made me think it should be a Vermintide location, lots of running around dispatching stupid rat creatures, but watch out for the Lava ..........

The caverns are indeed nice. I have three painted sets _(only painted base sets I have ever bought) plus three floor sets (one painted) and then a ton of cavern water. They really work well together and I can make a pretty big build with them. Love the larger floors, it just goes so much faster.
