Another winner from FDG. The E-Z Dungeon Basic set was great, but this set is amazing.
All FDG products, are designed with the novice modeler in mind, but the EZ Dungeons Deluxe Edition, ups the ante by improving the ease and speed of assembly for what were previously some of the more difficult pieces, such as curved walls, stairs and doors. There are now both double and single opening doors, both of which are removable. This set offers both helpful general tips for the beginner and clear building instructions for specific pieces.
With the Deluxe Edition, FDG has solved the dungeon assembly conundrums that characterized the Basic set. Hall corners, (square, curved, L, T and X) are all on 4x4" tiles. Walls, of varying lengths (1/2" to 8") can be built separately and clipped together, or mounted on foam core floor tile bases of various sizes and dimensions. Also there is an excellent tutorial on how to assemble and connect the wall/floor base units, to produce dungeons layouts of various sizes and configurations.
In addition to these improvements, and the usual compliment of items (crates, tables, pits, stairs, torch sconces, etc) the Deluxe Set features a number of all new pieces, such as the tilting pit trap, the 3D secret door, the Trapper monster, Green Slime, a 3D treasure pile, modular 2D rubble, and a dungeon well. The textures are gorgeous, offering two options for walls (clean and dingy).
This is an all around excellent product that will serve as solid base set for many future expansions, such as the recently released Mechanical Traps set.
