It has a great design and are really modular caverns.
An awesome job without a doubt.

However I won't support it : WHERE ARE MY SQUARES !
Without it I'm totally lost.

I pledged for one of everything unpainted.I will likely use a lot of the sets on a mat with my boats.

This will make a very nice island.

If this was made of Dwarvenite or even Bones I would be all over it.

I really want DF to do more 2x2 Caverns sculpts, do advanced builder cavern sculpts and some big sculpts such as a cave entrance.

I can see using these in large caves but I really prefer Dwarvenite.

I think I will pass on this one also. I am not sure I would extensively back another DF cavern KS, so not gonna go for this one.

To be honest, this looks beautiful. Grid-fans likely will be turned off, but it's nothing that can't be solved with a ruler or a marked, flexible piece of string or plastic. Painted option is about a 60% premium over unpainted. These sculpts would look amazing with some negative-space builds, like a printed mat or even some DF terrain trays.

It's actually kinda hard to tell, assuming all SG are reached, what a 1-of-everything looks like ($590 unpainted pledge) as far as table coverage. If I were to back (and I don't think I will, for various reasons), I'd really like to see that representation displayed either on a still shot or a video.

International shipping may be a really big factor in final cost, so be warned.

Interesting stuff - and it comes painted! I do not see it as compatible with DF caverns, but could be useful as an above ground hills, rocky ground, shallow cave environment. I like that he seems to be doing his own unique thing and not copying what other companies have already done. Kudos to him!

I like them.

In general, I like all "big pieces" items, I find that they speed up the builds by a lot.

In fact, something I would be super happy about, is if one day DF makes a "big tiles" expansion, as in 4x4 pieces (not just floors, but also with walls in different configurations - like Den of Evil: Hellscape 2 pieces).

Unfortunately I am EU, and the shipping for this project is devastating (and doesn't even include taxes and VAT), so I'll have to pass...

I can definitely see that people who are really dedicated to a grid will find this kind of terrain less attractive.

The creator is aware of the timing, and has stated that if it doesn't work out, he'll try again later. These days, it seems impossible for timing to be "great" because there are so many KS's... CMON's always got something big out there... but getting stuck between DF and Reaper in span of two months is particularly bad.

I can't believe I'm thinking of backing another terrain KS already, but I really do like the look of these and how they come together; and I think they'll go well with DF.
