...or at least a few well-placed pedestals!

So far my treasure of DF sets is limited to the cavern and both Wicked Additions sets, and I was wondering if I could make something using as many pieces as possible - and with a little bit of creative use of some of the pieces I managed to complete a very large room using all of the WA pieces, and I mean _all_ of them! See the picture for details!

Very cool, that you limited yourself to three sets and managed to make such a setup!

Well done!

Thanks for the comment!

I'm thinking of using this set-up for a D&DM game using the stairs on opposite sides as entry points for the two sides, with the purpose of getting first through the tunnel...

That's great! Those huge rooms are always fun, and I love the way you've used the stairs.

I find that if I force myself to use what I have, rather than breaking out more, I end up far more inventive and creative. I have enough that I could probably make almost anything I want, but I when I take a setup apart, I try to make something else using the exact same pieces, rather than taking out more pieces where there's a missing corner or something. You end up with far funkier, imaginative designs that way!

Using a limited set of pieces can be a lot of fun! But it won't stop me from getting MORE of them!!! :D

The real challenge I guess is using sets like the Wicked Additions, as they sort of assume that you have regular wall and floor sections that you want to expand...

Willypold,


You Know, and I have said this a lot, I Really Like Having Rooms Made up of Primarily Large Walls and Floors... If For the Simple Reason that they are a lot faster to set up (AND PUT AWAY..!!!.<Chuckle>...), In this Case I really like that you have used the pieces you have available to not only build a functional layout, but also have come up with some clever ways of utilizing even missing pieces into the Environment (Secret Door for Wall/Entrance, Stairs to Cover Wall gap Etc...) Nicely Done...

And as to Mini Battles, Lets Face it Big Rooms ARE for big Skirmishes Right?!?!
