What to order next? Got some advice? 5 Years ago  
Hi all,

At the moment my package is being procesed at the customs, so I hope it gets here soon. When i get it I will have the following sets:
1x R&P, 1x Trapset 1, 1x Fantasy floor set, 2x ABS2 (those doors and windows are great... that's why i wanted 2!), 1x Roomset, 1x MBS, 1x MBS2, 1x WA1 and the 3 accessoire sets (tavern, medivel furniture and dungeon).

So at the moment I will have enough to enjoy myself with for a while, but it stays fun to keep watching... and with the current euro-dollar course it could be wise to take advantage and even order some more (I live in Europa so i pay a lot for sending and taxes, normally a euro is worth about 0,75 to 0,8 dollar... at the moment it is about 0,70 or 0,69... this makes a difference in an order of about 1000 dollar of 70 to 90 dollar... ).

Now I have 3 question is at the moment, first what do you suggest about getting next? I was wondering what more experienced collectors have to say :-)

My current wishlist has the following items in them:
- Cavern set
- Cavernous passage set
- Rota set
- Rota expansion
- 1 Roomset or 1 MBS or 1 Den of evil roomset... don't know yet..
- (Love to get more spiral stairs and portcullis pieces.... but too bad there out of stock :-()


A good choise, or do you recomend something else?

And my second question:
How do you think Rota will combine with the other sets (MBS, Fantasy and Cavern). I don't see much pictures of these combined.
Last questions:
Is 1 Den of evil set enough to do some cool setups and how will this combine with my current sets?

Hope to hear your oppinions on the matter!

It all really depends upon how you intend to use you DF, (size of setups, all at once/one area at a time etc).

As a result, I would suggest that you experiment and see how your new sets work before ordering more.

That way, if you notice any (or recurring) shortages in your attempted setups you may have part of your answer.

Furthermore, as DF is modular in design it may also give you some good insight as to any pieces from any specialty DF sets that may compensate for initially perceived needs or shortages when constructing setups using basic sets.

I hope I explained myself clearly enough, and that it proves helpful.

Personally, as awesome as RotA is visually, I'd go for Cavern stuff if I were in your shoes. You've already got something serviceable for rooms and passages, so getting something to make different-looking rooms and passages seems somewhat redundant. You don't have anything that'll give you caves yet.

There will always be more to buy later. :)

My two cents...

I say: get a bit more Regular Dungeon and MBS stuff before moving on to Cavern.

Something like:

Certainly an ABS1 as soon as they are back in stock to complement your ABS2
Another room set or two for more corners and walls (or 1 room & 1 R&P maybe)
WA2
Another MBS set.

After this, you can comfortably move on to Caverns and know you've pretty much got all your bases covered with regular fantasy and MBS.

Cheers!

Thanks for the advices! To start I will begin making some setups when the stuff arives, sounds logically to me :-) (still no news from the customs... it has been there since the 6th... hope they hurry up a bit!). It sounds wise to complement the current setups, since ABS1 and WA2 aren't in stock i thought to go for the ROTA first... but also taking into account the cost i could take 3 fantasy sets instead or 2 rota... and after that take 1 cavern and 1 cavernous passage set (that should be enoug to have some cave adventeres right?).. I'm going to do a huge setup in my extra room where the game can stay put until it's finisched.. so i want to do a little town or big tavern and a castle/cave setup.

On the other side... A reason to go for ROTA first (besides that it looks great) is that the sets are limited.. i'm always scared that i miss the sets and have to go stalking ebay :-) (and man... i hate ebay... always get overbidden in the last minute...).

As for input regarding the suggested DF product lines, I would suggest the following, (based upon your previous purchases).

Personally I would focus on expanding the basic MM (fantasy) and Cavern stuff, as there remain a quite number of sets within both those lines that you could use to enhance your collection. At lease with these sets you know that they are fully and easily compatible with what you presently have.

or, at least

Purchase only sets based upon what you know you're going to use on a regular basis.

If you have questions about how well a limited edition set works in conjunction with the basic MM sets, then I would suggest searching throughout the "Cool Photos" section to view examples directly. If they work well together then there should be at least some photos to illustrate the combination possibilities for you to consider.

In closing,

I know what it's like to pay shipping as an "international" customer. As a result, I am very careful in planning how many different product lines of DF that I can afford to effectively collect. That is why I would not suggest branching out into too may different product lines, too early.
