What is your opinion on "water/lava" options in KS6?

I really want new water and/or lava tiles, and don't really care about new negative water/lava sculpts.

I really want both, but if I have to choose I'd prefer new water/lava tiles.

You know, I think even I could do most of these using Fimo or similar...not anything like as well as William, but good enough for a Junkyard Dog set.

Thanks, William! I have a bunch of old Fimo that needs used....off to prepare for three days of gaming this weekend, DF and DFJ back to back...10 gamers and one new vic.....prospect. With Youngest Offspring's group.
Need to have a bangup set!

Next will be negative space ideas -

Waterfall- YES!!

Tiles- no tiles with walls. Use regular water tiles and FREESTANDING walls. Much cheaper and very much more flexible.

Now I have to go back and look at the other pix....

I think I thought I knew what negative space was, and now I think I thought wrong and didn't know correctly what I thought negative space was.

Negative space = a water, chasm, acid, etc. area covered by something to represent the hazard and flanked by terrain. For instance, for water you can surround an area you have covered with blue construction paper with DF pieces and the area can easily be recognized as water. You could do black as a pit. A starfield as an open rift in the floor into space. Red for lava, etc. Doing this eliminates any need for DF tiles in the negative space area.

DF did a lava negative space and an acid negative space in the Dungeon of Doom with the terrain trays.

OK, glad I asked...after all this time on the Forum, I thought (and our gamers consider) negative space to be the space outside a dungeon's walls - ie, space that is basically solid rock, in theory!!!

Um, just yes, to everything! Amazing concept art for those water tiles. And the debris, etc, that would be awesome!

Water Edges - Beach.jpg

I was thinking about water edges with beach that extends all the way to zero space... to be used to represent large oceans, seas, oceans, etc. I am less interested in buying enough water tiles to represent 48 x 24" of water, and want to use negative space for that big of space.

DONE, Yea!!!

I wanted to add more text, but it always seems to have a problem with the pics if I try to write too much.
If you have any specific q's just ask, I'm happy to spell things out. ;)
