Two types of pillars, stairs, a big floor (6x6), Curved wall bits, and possibly nasty dragon/demon heads, looks great!

I just got mine, too!

OK, here are my quick thoughts:

Big floor with cool arcane symbol: Very nice. I like the red.
Columns: Coolness. I already liked the gargoyles, so these look to be a great addition.
Raised platforms: VERY neat. I like the "platform" effect on the big floor, and I REALLY dig the "uneven" and vaguely alien "texture" the realm gets with these.
Dragonskulls: The red looks a bit strong on these... hmmm.. But they do look cool.

I like the look so far, but I do have one concern: I hope the colors work together well, the red and purple here look like they may clash a bit. I already felt the set might be a bit too light, but I was holding off any customizations until I saw the expansion. I'm thinking that I may, when I have my expansion set, go ahead and give the whole shebang a dark inkwash of some kind, just to make it a bit less light. The lightness works for an otherworldly, alternate plane atmosphere, but it works less effectively as a "lair of the anti-paladin" kinda thing, which should (as we all know) be a rich, marble, glossy black. So.... hmmm.. I'm thinking...

Wow, I've never done any large-scale custom jobs on DF before -- added some resin water to some cavernous passages once, but that's it...

Although I will not be buying any of the original DoE sets - I do like the big floor piece and the pillars. I would buy quite a few of these if they ever became available to buy as individual pieces to "evil up" my regular dungeon/cavern/building set ups.

Admin - do you think this is ever possible/likely
Other DF fans - Would you also buy these, even if you do not have any DoE sets?

The dragon/demon heads look to actually be a 2x6 wall piece. Notice how in the first image you can see a little bit of a notch where the wall and head meet up? Also, the horns of the head appear to be joined together with a bit of spiraling something (gold?)

The stairs haven't been mentioned yet... they look to fit in nicely with the theme with their tentacle supports.

Very nicely done Stefan! I hear my wallet crying out in pain already...

To answer Dave's question, I'd love to see the columns sold separately. Especially the 'solid' ones. The floor pieces probably aren't as big a deal for me since I do plan to buy a couple sets, and the DOE theme seems to lend it to smaller rooms. Though I could see picking up a couple floor pieces to have 4 of them in total...

Shall we start speculating on what (if any) nifty throw-ins Jeff and Stefan may tempt us with for pre-orders?

Oh, and I totally didn't notice the curved walls at first! Very neat.

Well, guys;

I HAD seriously thought about giving the DoE WA a pass.
THEN I saw the newsletter.
FORGET IT!!! I WANT TWO!!
Just when I thought it was safe to look in my wallet again; WHAM!!!
Stefan, is this a conspiracy to keep me broke and at home? Have you been talking to Sandy behind my back? Did Mari and Lori put you up to this?
DAY-UM, boy, I'll NEVER get my web page up at this rate; I'm gonna be broke all the time buying DF. I won't be able to pay the hosting bill.

But I WILL have fun playing D&D, and scaring the bejabbers out of my characters (and their players!).

Seriously, guys; it looks GREAT! AND, the stairs ALMOST work as a "Grand Staircase"; not quite, but close enough until Stefan gets the Real Deal designed and in production (Limited Edition Pre-Order ONLY, unless it sells REAL BIG!).

See ya!

You bet your sweet bippy I'll be getting the set! Now it's just a matter of scraping up the cash. Let's see, I've already promised my kidney... maybe I can get by on one lung... oh, I'll think of something, I'm sure!

When i first read that, i went back and looked again thinking that you were totally off base, (i looked very hard before for a 6inch wall, and couldn'f find any the first time), and was going to say there are no 6inch walls. And i guess i still don't think there are 6inch wall's but after looking closer i do think you are right that the Heads are on the same 6 inch gate like item, like the Goblin mouth/gate thing.

Good Catch!

A Cool entry way for going into the inner sanctum of Evil. or flanking the insides of your temple to badness. :)

Can someone please post these pictures that I keep hearing about? It would be cool if the rest of us could see these. I checked the "Latest News" section on the DF web-site and it hasn't been updated in months. I would have thought that this kind of news would be posted there.

Unfortunately, I actually work INSIDE the Den of Evil and their e-mail servers rape any incoming newsletters that I was likely to receive...Thanks, guys!
