TOPIC: Ice Caverns?

Ice Caverns? 7 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
So, are we gonna see the option to get variant pieces cast in translucent Dwarvenite so we can paint ourselves up some icy or crystal caverns?

Because if so, I'm in for at least 2 more sets. Oh, or 5 more who am I kidding?

Dwarvenite doesn't allow for translucent pieces, as per Stefan a few months back. (We all wish)

It really is unfortunate as one of the teaser pics showed crystals and personally I -REALLY- dislike opaque crystals. (Ie: polystone, etc.) Crystals should not look like "rocks." :(

It's way beyond my skill level, but I have seen opaque resin crystals painted so well that they look (almost) translucent.

dwarvinite is apparently PVC, which i don't believe can be made in translucent

Sure it can, you can tint it too:

I believe some of the WOTC minis are translucent PVC. Not sure about Reaper's translucent plastics.

Now there may well be other formulation reasons that the particular Dwarvenite PVC blend doesn't work as well, but I don't remember anything indicating that. Seem to recall that in the discussion of cavern/sewer water tinted PVC was an option they were looking into.

I hope Stefan was looking into it but I am pretty sure it was just me hoping he and Jeff would look into it.

I could be wrong; here's a post where Stefan said they potentially could consider it: www.dwarvenforge.com/forum?func=view&catid=517&id=55667&limit=12&start=108#56947

Mythical Lairs offered some translucent acrylic crystals, so contact them and see if you can place an order.
