Indeed we're wiatinf for the european distributor opening Stefan !

Glad to hear something is planed to extended the ice caverns set.
Then don't forget icy narrow passages, transparent doors, frozen pits, archway and .... A FROZEN ENTRANCE !!!

Great idea's! I like the archways (full of icicles no doubt...frozen doors for the passages...and the Entrance from outside, yes, like the special offering we had for the realm of ancients? It would be kool, and usable for other things as well...Great suggestions!

Ah yes !
A frozen cavern entrance like the ROTA is exactly what I was thinking.
Something like a fault in rough rock covered with ice with a removable frozen cascade for the entry (a king of secret passage).

About the pieces for the expansion : a steep cliff, narrow tunnels fans-in (check the thing 2011 movie), removable blocks of ice being able to be used like walls, ice floes to create a transition on other sets, cold doors (transparent or not), a bell of ice (on a treasure chest or a figurine), stone pilars completely frozen, some crystals.

You can also check this page too : www.yeoldeinn.com/frozen-horror.php
It's the frozen horror expansion of HeroQuest. (only released in the usa)
Scroll down the page to get the tiles & board elements and look at some ideas they have been thinking 20 years ago.

Walls of ice, like the walls of fire in WA 3, would be extremely useful to me.

Re:Ice Caverns! 2 Years, 9 Months ago  
Looks like a possibility, but as HQF says it is mostly a redo in ice and I have 3 cavern sets. If we did more cold settings I might have more current interest. Considering my next campaign is going to be an Egpytian Mesopotamian setting it wouldn't fit well. Will keep it in mind though. I think next will be the building sets that we have not got yet. Have to start being somewhat reserved in what I buy with 40+ sets and running out of room to put them! Will have to put a rider on my home owners policy soon just for my DF!

If you have a copy of the receipts, or of the product page with the set, AND photos of the sets (possible out of the box to prove you have/had all of the pieces in good condition), then you should be able to insure your DF just like any other possessions (like jewelry, electronics, and expensive chachkis) that are covered by your homeowner's insurance.

Just check to see if your policy has minimum values for insured items, and if it excludes certain types of items.

Better yet, call your agent (or your company's help line) and ask them about it. Whatever they tell you, ask if they can send the information by e-mail ("so you don't forget", or "so everything is absolutely clear").

And let us know how it turns out.

Before the Ice Cavern Set Wendigos, Yetis, Abominable Snowman, Eyes of Frost had no home and where forced to live nomadic. Now they have the perfect winter retreat. They can gather round glittering ice formations and sceme on how to split the party. Share ideas on how to blast freeze and shatter the bodies of the trapped heros.
I like the Ice Cavern set. Even just a single set can add a great wintery feel to a campaign. I also agree with HeroQuestFrance that the set is a rehash and using the Cavern molds cheapens the whole set dramatically. I hope the next Ice set will be completely unique. As customers we pay a lot of $$$ and demand variety and quality. The more corners DF cuts the less it feels like the very best luxury gaming terrain and more like the rest.
I think this set is nice. With a combination of crumbled styro, fake fog, and Naloomi's workshop ice pieces you can make the players shivver. Naloomi's ice throne is perfect for an Ice Witch or Queen. I would like to see more ice sets. A mystical creature like a dragon or mamoth skull frozen into a terrain piece would be cool. Maybe some sort of oversized pieces for frost giant would be interesting. Frost Giant's Magaical Chest. Keep on expanding the DF world. :)

As I received my set today, I had the great surprise to see it's quite good.
The photos are very bad so here's my video :

Great video thanks, i love this set cant wait to see some more expansions for it.
If you have two of the ice snakes they would look great flanking an entrance, maybe trapped with icy blasts coming out of there jewelled eyes.

HeroQuest,
nice video you just did there. How many sets did you buy? I had my 3 sets built up this weekend, but I haven't had any time to make some pictures. You are right though, that no pictures so far can really show the awesomeness of those ice caverns.
Now I am going to built up my 3 cavernous lakes set and see how you can combine them with 10 water tiles...
My table won't be big enough I guess, though.

Re:Ice Caverns! 2 Years, 5 Months ago  
This is one of my favorite sets to date. I hope we see some ice cavern expansion sets. extra pieces that look unique from the other cavern sets would be much appreciated. I also liked the tall ice crystal pillars/stalagmites and the ice dragon that were in the pre-order bonus. I feel bad I missed out on those. The taller elements really add to the set and would be nice to frame an ice cavern entrance. Is there any way to get those bonus items still? Large order bonus ect...

I'd love to see some more tall ice crystals and/or stalagmites/stalagtites in sets to add a little more height the scenes other than just stacking the rooms. Of course I've wanted to see some cavern water falls for a long time now. A lava "fall" would be cool in a future fire set too.

Keep visiting the DF site and forum often. Those pieces you are looking for will probably become for sale; most pre-order promos don't sell all available Sets!
