FINALLY ARRIVED!!! Dwarven Forge Catacomb Set


My Dwarven Forge Catacombs sets (I ordered 3) finally arrived. I was hoping to get them for myself by Xmas but there was a delay in the shipping so was bummed out not to have presents to myself under the tree. I was excited today to find them on my doorstep and quickly set to opening them and unwrapping and setting them up.

The design is pretty cool and as usual the craftsmanship is the quality you expect from Dwarven Forge. The set features a series of burial chamber pieces complete with skeletons laid out on stone slabs in the walls, skulls piled up in corners, skull adorned pillars and archways.   I especially liked the abilities to add curved and strait walls onto existing floor tiles, a detail not found in other sets.

The standout feature of this set is that it also come with light up flaming corner pieces that are switched on from underneath each piece.  These will be a very cool addition to some of the other light up pieces Ive purchased on EBay through various vendors.  The only thing I wish was that there were fewer light up pieces and more corner pieces, as I see the regular corners pieces much more useful in the long run.

All that said, I'm happy to start constructing catacomb dungeon sets and  have been holding off on running my new gaming group through the Barrowmaze in anticipation of being able to use the pieces for this adventure which are perfect for that dungeon.
