Did you see they added the 1" extension set to the pre sale this week?
I saw that but couldn't see the use of it? Don't they include these with the tower battlements?
I remembered this thread: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=7922 where some folk with who ordered lots of extra tower walls were noticing that they would be short 1 inch extensions. So I thought I would point out that the set was added this week (in case anyone had missed it).

Most likely we'll all have a LOT of cauldrons, period3. I'll have 30! I've been trying to come up with ways of using them for something other than on the Castle. Like building a frame so they can sit over a camp fire... or in a forge.

I was supposed to not buy anything, but I ended up with this stuff for my count's castle base pledge:
2x small tower battlements
2x spacer cubes (to make 3x with my base pledge)
1x ramparts cren (to make 2x with my base pledge)
1x floor pack

shipped to relatives in the US to avoid shipping costs to Canada.

This expands my count's castle once again to the size of a citadel. The only downside is I have a lot of oil cauldrons now (six!) :( I hope I'll be able to trade some for regular crens or for shutters.

Right now I'm thinking I may just go with a Corner Cut-out wall as it seems I'm about two wall sections short of closing up my big build. I'm also going to need a bunch of Straight Crenellations from the CBS system which aren't part of the preorder; had thought about Battlement Transition pieces but I don't have the roof platforms to clip them ontop of CBS structures and the 8" they cover isn't enough space anyway.

I will not get anything this pre-order, as I really need to cut back on spending on DF and I want to see it in action first.

Which means I'll probably end up with a big retail order

I do have a friend here in Japan who is getting a lot of stuff so I can see and play with his first and then decide how much I want to go in for.

In the KS I went for a castle, 2 mega mountains and a bit of extra walls. I really want to go heavy on outdoor from now on, as it is an area I am lacking

Yes, DF that is a request for KS5.
