I stumbled across this KS today for Tablescapes Dungeons new Mines set: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1084069684/tablescapes-...
and immediately thought of SoB as a potential beneficiary of this product. Has anyone else seen this and thought it might be a new way to further enhance your SoB gaming experience?
I don't have the time to paint them up nice or figure out how to make the appropriate room layouts with the pieces in the set, but it might be interesting to see if someone else figures it out.
I'm backing it and plan to use the components similar to the way Bum Kim has demonstrated with the walls he built for Massive Darkness.
I have a lot of the Dwarven Forge caverns, but I like his approach better that adds walls to the existing terrain (fortunately, my caverns will be well used with Descent and Dungeon Saga).
Part of my motivation is what you said... I don't have time to figure out layouts. I'll use the walls to line the existing Brimstone tiles.
As for painting... painting is extremely easy and quick if you want. Spray and ink wash would have a great southwestern limestone effect.
I had picked up a mold at Hobby Lobby for trains to do western limestone walls, but this project will save me the trouble of doing all the casting.
The reason why these will work better than the DF is because the walls are a 1" wide segment, whereas the DF walls include the floor space which would cover the Brimstone tiles too much. These will cover the tiles minimally, and have a better visual effect.
Similar to the original deal on the DF original Kickstarter and the original Reaper Bones Kickstarter I think this Kickstarter is going to be one of those awesome bargains that you'll hear people saying "I wish I had known about it then, cause it's too expensive now."
Reaper and DF have continued to have incredible Kickstarter offerings, but their subsequent Kickstarters haven't come close to the bargain value of their first Kickstarters.
