Outdoor Scenery 4 Years, 2 Months ago  
You know what would be awesome? Dwarven Forge outdoor scenery sets. Such as forests, creeks, hills, fields, meadows, etc. Just a thought.

Re:Outdoor Scenery 4 Years, 2 Months ago  
we have this topic every 6 months i think, as usual i must admit that DF
should better concentrate on indoor stuff, cause for the outdoor stuff you
mentioned are
1) other manufacturesrs who do this already
2) doing outdoor stuff is far more easy to build with few money on hand
3) you can use many of the model-railway stuff available

So in conclusion i think outdoor would not sell very well.

Some kind of freestanding rocks for the cavern system, you can also use
in outdoor settings, or cobblestone tiles for use with MBS would be ok,
but thats it.

Certain types of outdoor terrain might work.

A set of walls designed to go with a battle mat could be done as the walls of a canyon or ravine. I'm picturing Antelope Canyon with its smooth, whorled sandstone walls. (Google it.) If done without floors, the walls could be placed any distance apart for canyon floors of any size or configuration. And without floors, we could put down battle mats with various colors/motifs -- green for grassy or mossy canyon floors, tan for desert planets, water effects for trips down the rapids, and so on.

Yes, the Cavern sets can also be used to simulate the floor of a canyon.

A "wall" of tree trunks and bushes would work for dense forest (like Mirkwood).

But overall, I think DF should stick to interiors, for the reasons stated by Green_knight.

Careful, Stefan- the line between your hints and your throwaway comments is a fine one. Though I can't really blame you, like any good DM, you do like to tease us...

Make something idiot-proof and someone will just turn around and make a better idiot.

I think the most practical way to expand the great outdoors is to add to the MBS and do a city scape and a village scape set. The disadvantage of needing lots of floor tiles is partially redressed by not needing as many wall sections. This would enable a decent sized set to still cover a reasonably large area, especially as most people seem to buy multiple sets at a time?

I'd buy it!
