ABS3 was a double-secret special limited edition promotional pre-order bonus set that sold out in the first five minutes.

It was all pieces for stacking multi-level set-ups. It's the best set ever.

I have two.

...seems more fitting for an Advanced Builder 4 but perhaps it's fine to include it in a Wicked Edition Set...how does everyone feel about that? Is this a piece that would be welcomed even though you can do it with the 2" long passage...
It's a good idea, but I think it belongs in a future ABS. It's a variation of a piece that already exists, for what seems like a very particular situation.

Jackattack has the right of it, although the short passage with openings plus Insert Wall only works if you have the space for two inches long, which in a setup I was doing before I posted, I didn't have (which was why it occurred to me that I'd like a passage wall + sill). My post was using 5' per square as the scale, which I agree in retrospect wasn't that clear...

Jackattack's explanation is way clearer.

OK, I think I understand...seems more fitting for an Advanced Builder 4 but perhaps it's fine to include it in a Wicked Edition Set...how does everyone feel about that? Is this a piece that would be welcomed even though you can do it with the 2" long passage from ABS3? (This piece would be a "passage section" that is 1" long with an opening on one side, If I understand correctly)

If there were going to be an ABS3 soon, that'd also be cool. I looked at WE1 again (as I said earlier) and it's a mix of functional and pretty, but if the move is to put functional into ABS, I guess I'm not going to complain.

It would also be cool to have a "passage section" that is 1" long with no wall on either side (ie, an opening on either side), for similar reasons; it'd basically be two inches wide plus the width of two sills.

Anyhow, in the set-up I had, I couldn't have used the two inch ABS piece because I only had one inch; this is made somewhat worse because there are no short passageway sets on sale, so I only have the two short passageway pieces from ABS1 and have to rely on the 6" passageway pieces from WE1.

So, in my ideal world, there'd be a short passageways set and these two pieces I'm talking about would appear in ABS3. And you'd re-release diagonal walls. Also, I want a pony.

I was listening to my Halloween playlist in the car and "The Cask of Amontillado" came up.

So I want a Straight Wall piece with a gap in the stonework designed to accept brickwork inserts. That's right, the brickwork should be in two or three pieces so the gap can be partially or fully sealed.

If stability is an issue, make it a slotted door like in DoE.

A sealed wall is also a critical part of the story "The Canterville Ghost".

I have to agree with Jackattack and bagpuss above, that I'd rather have the passage piece reserved for the ABS3. To make room for something a little more flashy for the WE3, like those bitchen gothic or columned windows...

BTW can't seem to get enough of the 6'x6' square floor pieces for my gaming and diorama set ups. Do you plan on restocking the 6 pak of em'? Or maybe even a new floor piece for WE3..

How about a couple of smallish set releases that are "themed" e.g. barracks (with weapon racks, table with dice and cards, toilet, cooking area, bunk beds) and "torture chamber" (wrack, brazier and tongs, stock, iron maiden, iron cages of different sizes)?

Personally,

I would want to see pieces that I can not easily make myself by attaching items to existing DF pieces.

However,

Pieces that would (otherwise) require casting or extensive sculpting to create, I would find those types of pieces to be far more useful from a DF produced set.


Such pieces may include:

Gothic/open windows (x4)

Vaulted pillars

Prison/barred pieces

Other window (x2)

A few new doors (steel, magical etc)

Oh, and two lever pieces similar to those pictured above.



Thanks

Steve



BTW,

Fantastic work on the custom pieces Tom, they're AMAZING!

You know, a Fantasy/Dungeon version of the Chasm set could be interesting... Some edge pieces that could be used for making pits, cleaning up the edges of stacked floor pieces, and so on... Maybe this too is more of an AB set really, but I would find them useful...

While I don't want to take away business from a very good artist, I'd love to see "Bombanat"-style pieces (if memory serves on the name).

There are so many, it's difficult to remember....
I wish I could find the pictures I've downloaded...


Ring of fire on a large (4x4 or 4x6) floor piece.
Pool in a Cavern Corner or Cavern End
Chamber Pot (well, the one I have is a nicely decorated fantasy corner piece with a wooden bench with decorated back (like a chair back) and a niche in the wall with a book on it.
fountains with running water coming out of fantasy walls and into a pool on the floor
4x6 floor piece with a rectangular (made made) pool of water
a T-section with spider webbing, victims, equipment, and perhaps a spider
a checkered corridor (either a 6' long or a T-passage) with alternating color tiles (black & white, or yellow/blue, etc.)
levers protruding from either the floor or the wall
"jail" pices where there's a window cut out of a fantasy wall and wooden or metal bars are in the window (or perhaps a cavern piece where parts have been chisseled away and so the bars are natural stone)
I found one of the Bombanat pieces I own... a fantasy corner. A recessed area has been carved out of the corern, a female figure;s upper torso protrudes from the recess, she's holding a vase, the vase is pouring water into a ledge, the water spills from the ledge down into a pool carved out of the floor, the outer edge of the pool is lined with stones, and there's moss growing around the pool.


Like I said, I do not want to steal Bombanat's ideas or dry up purchasers....but I DO believe the items he produced (still produces?) were very unique, very imaginative, had lots of "wow" factor, and make great additions to any dungeon!

Yeah Bombanat!

I googled "bombanat" and found these pictures and videos.

I had forgotten about the totally awesome murals and whatnot. Wow.


Here is a previous post from me with MANY pictures of Bombanat's work.
Check it out!

62 sets and counting. In addition, a boatload of individual pieces or sets of pieces.

Cool. I like the bridge from the video. :)



Found the first of the two videos:

In this video, I like the T-piece with a "doorway" in the long wall. Great idea with the magnets and changable parts (green slime, fire, etc.)


I like Bombanat's fireplaces better than most I've seen.

Okay, now I want a "Bombanat Set" (and don't forget BBN2 and BBN2 and BBN4!).

and roofs for the MBS (Tom was it? Someone here made some awesome roofs)

Whilest searching for Bombanat pics, I stumbled across this: www.lair-craft.com/lair-craft-gallery.htm

Pretty cool, eh?

Few other items for a wish list, although not for a wicket additions list:
- a real DF Database
- software that lets you plan DF layouts and works with your DFDB
- some software or symbols that would allow someone to design/build/map a DF setup using Profantasy software (Campaign Cartogropher)

If DF wants to produce these things, I'd buy them

I've always admired Bombanat conversions but I've never been able to find one for sale. :(

Now, I know that if DF made some of those conversion pieces I'd have to get 'em...even if I had to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches for a month!!! :D

If anyone is willing to sell their Bombanat pieces please let me know! :rolleyes:
