I was just going through the process of working out exactly hw much stuff I've got three months in. Once I had everything out I couldn't resist taking a quick pic. Still need more though, lots more.

Thats some serious stuff there Charliemonster :) I should do the same to see what I have amassed in my short time of collecting as well. Started about the time of the <a href='jumpto.php?DoE' title='More about DoE ...' class='wrapped_url'>DoE</a> Wicked Additions pre-order, so probably about 3-4 months of ownership as well :)

Out of curiosity, what sets do you have there. I opted to go down the DoE route due to their limited edition so my little collection is probably going to differ somewhat. But was curious what sets you have laid out for our viewing pleasure :)

And I agree, there just never seems to be enough :)

Edit: Oops just read the set list at the bottom of your post :)

Lupus, Charliemonster

Something I can recommend heavily while your collection is still not toooo massive:

In the early years of my collection once a year (around the New Year) I took out every single piece I owned and build a dungeon with the aim to use every single last piece I owned. Before I did this I had a rough idea of a game in my mind. The finetuning happened later once everything was in place.

I still think these where some of my best layouts and best games I game mastered. Actually - once I build up the dungeon for a friend who was the GM. He told me - this many entrances - this many special rooms - one final room. It worked pretty well.

It only worked the first three years - afterwards my table got too small (approx. 95cm*175cm).

Do it while you can

Lupus,

I have 1 @ of Room Set, Room & Passage Set, Wicked Addtions 1 & 2 and the excellent Advanced Builder set, but I've bought a lot of odd & sods: 8 Corners Pieces, 4 Curved Corner Pieces, 4 Straight Walls, Five Floor Pieces, 4 Pit Traps, 2 Passage Pit Traps, 1 Set of Swivelling & Slamming Doors, 4 Alcoves (well worth the investment!!!) & 2 Diagonal Walls and some furniture. :cool:

I've just placed an order with Richard @ Otherworld for a Narrow Passages, an Octagonal Room Set & some more curved corridors. I do like the DOE but I have made the decision that that is one set too far!!! :o

Thod,

I'm already struggling to incorporate every thing in my set ups and at the end of this month is when I will definitely have passed that point. I am vacillating between buying shed loads of SF stuff or going for MBS and some caverns. Ultimately I will get both, but I keep changing my mind about which I will pick up first.

Fantasy: 2 x MBS, 1 x Cavern, 1 x Cavernous River & Wall Set, Lotsa Pedestals

or

SF: 3 x Starter, 3 x Alpha, 2 x Beta, 1 x Passage, 2 x Long Wall Sets, 1 x Cavern

Decisions, Decisions... ...I won't have decided until I have the money to click :lol:

Thod,
That's a brilliant idea. TO create just for the sake of getting something together :) Guess I'm always rushing around all the time, specially with work that I just forget to sit down and just let the imagination go wild. Up till now, its always been work for a reason, rather than enjoy what one has :) WIll have to find time to do it.....once all my extended family come and go :) Have my parents and my sister's family coming in a week to stay. It's going to be chaos galore! Specially with a two year old running around the house....one that has yet to see the pitter patter of small extremely energetic and from what I hear mischivious feet :) Needless to say, all the small fiddly bits and DF stuff is going to be packed well and truly away :)

Charliemonster,
Thanks for the heads up on your sets. I will have to do the same with my stash of stuff. Just to see what I actually do have. Keeping the DF stuff in their boxes is kinda deceptive :)

WIth regards to your plans for your future order, I guess part of it depends on what your gaming needs are. Unfortunately, the groups I game with range in their tastes and as a result, I have ended up with bits and pieces of DoE and Sci Fi (3 x Starters, 1 x passage), which kinda cut my fantasy order down. Which in my opinoin means I am kinda lacking in both. If it were me, in retrospect, I would probably have gone for more fantasy first, rather than split the order into sci fi and fantasy. Wishing I placed an order for caverns first now. But that is a purefly personal opinion based upon my own needs...........guess from my point of view, there is so much more I want to do with fantasy see what can be done with the DoE stuff. With Sci Fi, I am finding my lack of 'furnishings' a little frustrating :)

I know the feelings with regards to the cash situation :) Kinda overdrew on the bank account over the xmas period trying to pay for my new 'addiction' and am already trying to put stuff away for the next pre-order :)
