It comes up on the second page. I dunno how you feel about helping "the competition" (although I conside HA and DF to be "completition"), but it sounds like Bruce needs to talk shop with someone who has some experience with modelling caves.

Um...and I wouldn't mind discussing your materials and techniques for making caves either! I've done some work with air drying clay, but I'd really like to know what you use/how you make the masters?

I have been curious about Bruce's caverns, too -- the Descent board stuff he put up looked pretty cool.

In general, now that I've backed off from using HA as extensively as I once did, I still recognize that those molds can be used for some outrageously cool DF accessories. The regular dungeon (i.e. fieldstone) things make some cool stuff Stefan hasn't yet gotten around to, and the cavern molds look like they could do the same. The only area where Bruce is really and truly ahead is in sci-fi, where HA does, admittedly, offer a far wider range of products. But hopefully this will be the year DF begins to catch up.

And as someone who collects SF only in the background, my wallet would appreciate that as well...

Completition is a good word, describing what I'm doing, using the starship molds for the SF environment that Dwarven Forge isn't producing – the moody and dark and oil-dripping and rusty variety – and the Egyptian tomb molds, but Dwarven Forge for the things I can't make – the whole cavern system, for example. I've tried doing water, but I much prefer the things Stefan has turned out for the caverns – simply unbeatable!

Thanks for the link Blair, very interesting thread...I think i can safely say that I can relate to the struggles Bruce is going through right now...I'm sure he will arrive at something quite good pretty soon. Hopefully, it will be something compatible/interchangeable with what we have here at the Forge...
Personally, I liked the spikey freeform shapes the best. I also think more "stuff" on them is better than less...

I hope it is compatible as well, i honestly wouldn't have bought any HA if it weren't for DF. I like the fact i can make some stuff that doesn't exist yet in DF with HA. And i can use it to expand upon my DF. I used HA to make the Lava rivers, that are very compatable with DF (heck i stole your design they ought to be). But after reading that thread a few times, i can't help but get the fealing Mr. Hirst is knocking DF in a few places. And i can't help but say he has no idea what he is talking in regard to stacking...

....Tried to add my 2 cents to the forum discussion over there but after registering and making up my user name and personal password (and after having my long letter washed away as well) it said that i needed an administrators password to get accepted?......jeez! oh well. Anyway, I just wanted to add basically what I said above and to cheer on Bruce's efforts and congratulate everyone over there for their fine efforts on the matter (as one that's been there)
Not really sure if I want to get involved/addicted to yet another forum though...

he,he,he...

Hmm, your registration woes are odd..try registering an ezboard account through www.ezboard.com iself insted of the hirst forums and it should work.

I'd suggest getting involved with the HA forum Stefan...some great work is displayed in their cool pictures section!

Speaking of cool pictures, you should check out the dungeon of doom at www.orcsdrift.com ....it's my current HA muse, a crumbling ancient filthy dungeon that had me planning out how to make 12"x12" modular dungeon sections.

You mentioned using sculpting wax to make masters. Care to elaborate on what that stuff is? I'd like to know more about the armatures as well.

the HA cavern walls had better be alot higher quality than the pictures shown or they aren't going to compete at all with the cool DF cavern sets.
