Wouldn't some more cake-piece-tiles from the narrow cavern set help you? I find that the shift from 90 degrees corners only to 45 degrees sometimes changes a lot and looks much more organic.
I use the wedges but as good as they are I still see the need for advanced builder cavern pieces and more sculpts to really add variety to caverns.

I cut a few of those 45 degree cavern passage pieces into about 22.5 degrees each. ;)

i would purchase a cake tile pack if they were available separately (mmmmm.... dwarvenite cake!)

it is why i purchased narrow passage packs instead of wall supports (only to find out the color change later)

With 10 sets out on a table it is a impressive cavern but less organic than I wish it was.

:lol: mnoelio

I often use caverns and dungeons on the same table. Dungeons inside caverns, caverns connected to dungeons, dungeons connected to caverns connected to other dungeons. But your right dungeon crawls are the default.

Agreed kodiakbear!!! But everyone loves dungeons because it's not Caverns & Dragons :(

I have 10 sets of caverns and that is a good amount for the table I have if I had more table space I would want more because caverns are awesome, but what I really want is advanced builder cavern pieces, more new sculpts and a couple of entrances. With 10 sets out on a table it is a impressive cavern but less organic than I wish it was.

I certainly agree, mainly because with KSI and KSII it was easy to build and destroy to build the next section as the characters moved across the table. KSIII and KSIV were much more diorama type builds where everything is laid out beforehand in all its glory.

And I know I am like this. I still want more KSIII even though I have enough,(Probably Empire+Capital by now) but it does not cover enough of my table, so I want more more more. :D :D

With my three sets of caverns plus a good number of add-ons I am very content.

In my experience, I think the average amount of "base" sets in KS1 and KS2 to get a decent amount of table coverage was 3-4 sets with 3-4 add-ons in order to get a large variety of builds.

In KS3, it was a different ballgame, because it seemed it was all about the add-ons. I found that I ran out of roofs and doors very quickly, even if I wasn't interested in sewers and streets and could focus solely on the buildings.
