I'm way ahead of the curve and got the Secret Alternate Unpainted lava and water caverns.
Are they the mythical unreleased Bond Villain Lair sets?

We believe that lava tiles are very much a RPG thang, as are caverns as a whole in our opinion. Not many pitched battles in volcanos.
not active ones at least ;)

but the volcano lair is a sacred trope

Yeah - i got marble too... but i am holding my breath

there is a BIG difference between painted in Brooklyn (one piece at a time) and painted in China (with a thousand pieces lined up on a table)...

I hope the marble looks cool - cause i have tried it and got REALLY frustrated...
Yeah - for a perfect example go back to the Caverns KS pics and compare the studio NY lava paint scheme to the factory paint that was delivered. The factory painted lava water tiles were/are marginal at best. (So bad I returned all my painted lava sets and got unpainted.)

They also switched the base material color from standard dark grey to that lemon yellow without telling anyone.
I do not care for 2"X 2"water tiles because I do not want that many edges in water. Lime stone water caves look stupid when they are painted like lava. The tiles are beautiful it ruins the effect. I can not comment on the factory paint because I do not have any. I like to paint my own.I also use primer so the color of the PVC makes little difference.
I did not pledge for any marble or jade

Not an limestone cavern effect at all.Lava does not lie flat like water.
my lava is painted like "liquid hot mag-mah"...

Isn't that the case with all unpainted? You poor painted people, getting locked in by DF. I pity you all. :lol:

I can have a mismatched mess in this room, that room and the room over there, and all different mismatched messes at that!!!!!

Very true.

Of course it should be noted that most movie, roll playing game, TV, video game and book lava does not act like very realistic lava either.

I never got any lava tiles because lava caverns IMO would be a very rare environment that I could just do with negative space better. I got lots of water tiles because I like to do water in tiles and negative space both, depending on the build.
