Advice on which sets to get 5 Years ago  
Hi all,

I found out about dwarven forge when i was shopping in a dusty gamestore. There i found a room and pasage set, a fantasy floor set and a trap set... Just had to buy them immidiatly, and so my addiction began... Then i found out that i had to buy the sets in the US and was shocked about the high sending costs. For that i found a solution in another dutch guy which does some importing. I hoped to order together, but he made a lot of promisses, but nothing happend (glad i didn't pay in advance...).
So I have been waiting from march to expend my collection and that is a long time to wait! So know i decided to order it on myself and stop crying about the high sending costs... and try to get the sets as soon as i can :-).

I hope you can give some advice about which sets to get, i do have something in mind. I want to be able to create some cool setups of castles, dungeons and villages. I think about buying these:

- 2x Half-Size Bow Ties (Set of 100) #16407 (for filling the bow ties of my current sets)
- Swinging spiked log trap #16373

- Wicked Additions Set #16270 (Love the portcullis and curved walls. Think that these are essential for a castle)
- Room Set #16314 (Make some more rooms...)
- 2x Advanced Builder Set 2 #16411 (Seen the possibilities in the newsletter with a R&P, a R and 2 ABS2 sets... love it :-) But i do think i'll need 2 to really take advantage of it)
- Medieval Building Set #16394 (Want to get some variation in the look. Also for making towns and castles. But i'm really in doubt about this one, since it is also about 150 dollar extra after sending... but i do really like this set).

These sest come down to a total of 545 dollar, after taxes and sending i'm paying 910 dollar....

What do you think about my choice, would you order the same or something else?

Greetings from the Netherlands, Thierry

Hi Friend! for a start, I would recommend wait for the MBS and take instead Wicked Additions 2, and a Fantasy Floor Set as soon it is available. And, by the way, given the fact that the Den of Evil will be out of print someday, I would not wait and would take one set of each that are still in production (Room Set and Evil Additions Set) as soon as you can.

Hope it helps!

Greetings, and happy addiction! :-)

You mentioned a couple of items from the Individual Pieces section. I would go ahead and get everything you even think you'll want from that section, as most of them are out of production.

I agree with arsthein. While variety is nice, and the MBS is really great, I would probably get another Fantasy set to round out the others. Pick up a couple-few MBS sets later -- they'll still be around.

Medieval sets are EXCELLENT.
Don't hesitate a minute take one MBS & one expansion set (with accessories your adventures will have another dimension)

Thanks for all the fast replies!

I was in doubt about the DoE sets, but i would rather go for the normal since they are less thematic. And if i go for more theme i would rather go for the RotA sets, i like them more. But i also have a budget to consider :-) And would first like to have more of a basic "dungeon".

Already got a fantasy floor pack, really like it, but it doesn't really comes out since i don't have a big enoug dungeon to make a good room in it. Therefore i would also like the room set. So that one i think i should take no matter what.

I was thinking about the accesoires and the MBS expansion, but then i would like to add other accesoire sets as wel.. since curently i also use some paper stuff from world works games... building a large liberary for example is really simple. But it would really not be nice to combine those 2 i think... So it is either the one thing, or the other. And to order all right know isn't really availible to my budget right now... Or maybe someone should know about (prefere pre painted) terrain for sale in europe?

Right now i decided that i'll take the following:
Trap part and halfbowtiles+
Roomset, 2xABS2, WAS1...
But still in doubt about the MBS and MBSE and expensions...

Do you really think i need to use the MBSE to really take advantage of the MBS, or will it also work with what i already have?

Even deciding what to buy from DF is fun!

Be advised that the ABS2 set can only reach its full potential alongside the ABS1 set. (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong here). The ABS1 set is due back in September, so maybe wait on the ABS2 sets until then and instead get the MBS & MBSE sets along with the three in stock accessory sets (Tavern, Dungeon and Furniture). People have been building great dungeons for years without the ABS2 so your layouts will still be plenty sweet AND you'll be able to build some nice taverns etc.

I saw the news letters from dwarvenforge. In the one from 2 juli 2009 are some setups that you could make using a RP set with the ABS2, and after that is a setup of 1 RP, 1 R and 2 ABS2 sets. That is the one i was going for as total size to work with.. So it should work just fine i think...
About the waiting... not really my strong point :-) Like I was telling above, i wanted to order since march... now i finally gonna, I'm waiting untill i'm home and tonight i hope to place the order.

Just orderd :-) Just couldn't wait any longer haha.
For those curious about what i orderd, it became this list:
Room set, Wicked addition set 1, 2x Advanced builder set 2, Medieval building set, Medieval building set expansion, The 3 accessoire sets, swinging log trap, wooden floor tiles set of 5, arrow loop trap set of 4, the other arrow trap set of 4 :-).... It is a little more than i thought.. but can't wait untill it arrives!

Welcome Crimlock,

My suggestion would be to take 2 room sets instead of 2 ABS2 or a Cavern Set? (Not sure if we Caverns in stock though)...the reason for getting room sets is that the room sets are the real basic building blocks which allow you to build many rooms...considering that you collection is not very large yet I would think that 1 ABS2 should be enough. It is fine to get it without the ABS1 as far as filling in the insides of passages and since you only have 1 R&P set I would think that one set would be enough and so it would be more satisfying to get another set instead...of course, only you know what you desire better than anyone else...

Great to have you among us, post some pictures afterwards!

Hi Stefan, thanks for the reaction. I thought about getting more room sets. The reason for me not to do that, but get the ABS2 instead were that it fill's up my gaps in the R&P set and traps layout (when i use them at the same time). I did get one room set, but also wanted to go for the medieval thing. Offcourse those can be used in a dungeon setting also, so i decided to take the medieval set and nog a second roomset. It was fun to sort out what to get, but i'm glad i finnally decided and the stuff is coming over.
