suggestions for the next 5 sets to buy 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
Hello All,
I'm new in DF,
I bought recently 12 used sets (to play D&D) and I'm thinking what 5 sets, I can buy to "complete" my collection.
I know that will never be complete, and I will want more and more..because this stuff is fantastic, but my budget for at least one year (maybe 2 :( ) is just 5 additional sets, no more.
buying from Europe is very expensive, and I'm buying an apartment..and I've to buy also a car...so to be honest I'don't know even why I'm buying 17 (12+5) sets in this situation :P

so I've to choose 5 sets, as if they were the last for long time.
now I've:

2 Cavern Set
1 Cavernous Passage Set
Room and Passage Set
Room Set
Deluxe Room Set
Octagonal Room Set
Curved Wall and Passage Set
Wicked Addition Set
Wicked Addition 2 Set
Narrow Passage Set
Trap Set



my starting idea (tell me if it makes sense) for 4 of this 5 sets is to buy:
2 Cavernous River and Wall Sets
1 Cavernous Chasm set
1 MBS

I want a Cavern Set with water, I'm sure about that, because they are beautiful..but I can't buy both lake sets and river&wall sets...so my chooice is for river&wall, because seems more useful (walls, bridges,etc) and need less investement to work at 100% (with the lake I think that I need to buy at least also additional open water pieces..or I'm wrong?)

suggestions for this 5 sets? :)
thanks!

Those four are good choices. here is my two cp:
I hope this helps, anything you buy will greatly increase your layout options. I play D&D and use a lot of published adventures. I do a lot of map recreations with DF. My only hangup when recreating an encounter map is not having enough diagonals. So I look for DF pieces that give me more options to copy or create odd sized rooms or areas.

I think you will get more options out of your Room and Passage, Deluxe Room, Narrow Passages, WA I. & II sets if you you bought an Advanced Builder 2 set. The river and walls set are awesome and buying two will definitely give you many more options with river or sewer, and cavernous layouts. The chasm set is nice too. The ledge pieces and the curved corner filler pieces have been very useful. As much as I adore the MBS sets. I have not used them as much as I initially thought I would. Now that said, I think I am always using pieces from the MBS expansion set and the tavern accessories. The lake sets are cool. and you can use them in concert with the rivers sets you can get some really neat combos. To me the river pieces have been more useful. So if you are going to get river and wall set get two, the free standing walls from that set are awesome.

In conclusion: 2 Cavernous Rivers and Walls, 1 Advanced Builder 2 set, 1 Cavernous Chasm set, and for your 5th set maybe fantasy floors (to spice up your many Fantasy line sets).

Good luck

2 Rivers and walls, 1 AB2, and maybe an AB1, and 1 chasm set.

I love my MBS but unless you can spring for the MBS and tavern addon at the same time then I woudl hold off.

Suggestion:

Buy directly from Dwarven Forge when at all possible!!!!!

True, buying second hand can get you a bargain and/or sets that are not currently in print, but buying direct from DF keeps them in business and helps them produce more sets for everyone to enjoy!

thanks for the anwsers!
I've already a lot of tavern furniture, (I'm new to DF, but I already used 3D solution in D&D) so that's would not a big problem.

I received two suggestions for ABS 2 (and one for ABS 1)...hmm,
but this chooice is not a kind of "surplus" in my situation?
I'm not sure if the word "surplus" is a good translation (my english is not so good)..what I mean is that, for what I understand ( looking to the images), ABS 1&2 sets, are for people that have "90%" and want "100%"...in other word a small help to reach the perfection..no?
but I miss so many type of sets that I don't care about this additional 10% when I use "Dungeons" Sets, I'm already quite happy about my Dungeons sets..and so at first I would prefer to get a completely new set...I don't know if you understand what I mean..but maybe I'm wrong because I'm underestimating ABS sets...maybe this sets change completely the way to use "Dungeons" sets and is more than a small add..
if someone could give me some opinion about that would be really helpful :)

1 River&Wall and 1 Lake Set, could work? or it's better to take 2 of the same?
and if I want wait for the Lake set (I don't know when will be avaiable again..this summer?) exist the risk that at that time, the River&Wall will be out of stock again?

I understand and Agree, I would help, because DF is really good stuff!!
but let me say, that it's a little bit more easy to say that when you are not from europe (you have to consider big shipping cost, and big tax!)
what I mean is that buy 12 sets directly from DF, meant for me at least 1500$ more.
I don't think you never sent a 1500$ check to DF, for nothing except help the cause :D
for me the chooice was:
1)start collecting a minimum basis of used sets 2)do not start.
because it's difficult to Starting to collect something, when you have to buy at the double of the price each item.
buying this used sets, allows me now, to buy 4-5 few sets directly from DF...better than nothing I think :)

I would highly recommend Den of Evil, since it will probably be the first to get out of stock, and it's a must have! The river and walls is absolutely awesome too.

Since you have some old sets that are out of print I am going to assume all of your sets have bow tie connectors.
I'm not a fan of mixing the same sets that have and dont have bow tie connectors. Truth be told I'm glad they are gone but
the bulk of my Dungeon sets have them so I try to buy basic dungeon sets that have the connetors so they all
match. This is probably the main reason I havent picked up an ABS II since it was never made with bow ties.

I don't blame you for wanting the sets that you have listed as I think they will round out your collection nicely.
My only other thought is that if you remotely think you will ever want any Den of Evil sets you should pick them up
now. I think there are about 225ish of each left before they are gone forever. The original Doe room and passage set
now goes for 250+ . That price could drop when they other sets go out of stock or they all might keep going up...
I think its semi inflated now since the other sets are still available and it's the only one out of print. I could be wrong.

but you speak of the DOE room set?
you will suggest this set also without the DOE room and passage set?
where is possible to read how many set remain?

and yes my sets are all with the bow tie connectors.

I think Den of Evil works well as a "BOSS" chamber so you can really get away without
any DOE passages as long as you have some passages from othe sets.
There is a drop down tab on each of the sets' pages showing 15 DOE WE and 29 Room sets.
I believe there is another shipment of 200 of each still to come but I think that is it.

How about 2 river sets, 2 DOE room sets and 1 DOE WE ? I just don't want you to wish you
had got the set and then pay too much for it later. You really can't go wrong either way you
go, I just wanted to offer my perspective. Only you know what sets you will get the most use
out of for the kind of games you will run. Buying DF is never easy as all the sets are really cool.

BTW they also offer half bow tie connectors which I may pick up on my next order.

I agree with jls304, even if you don't get any evil passages, you can create an awesome evil room with one Evil Room set and one Evil Additions. AND you can use some evil additions in other places in the dungeon among the rest of the fantasy pieces.

I have one evil set of each type, and having the room and passages makes possible to build a whole section of the dungeon in evil style and it's great to have passages to connect the chambers, but anyway, even without the passages, if in time you get a couple of room sets and an evil additions, you'll have enough.

I read that for a single package there is a limit of sets of 3-4...is correct?

I think that I choose, this four:
2 Cavernous River & Wall Set
1 Cavernous Chasm Set
1 Den of Evil Room Set

it's ok for a single shipment? (to Italy)
there is space for something else? a small set or some individual pieces?
if the shipment is to an US address (friends) there is more space?
thanks

I think you are good for a couple more. Just add them to your cart. When there are too much set, the cart will stop working. I was able to get 6 sets in the last time i ordered.
