I tried to recreate the frost goblin ambush setting from Dungeon #159, and it would take at least three or more likely four sets to build a reasonable depiction of that battlefield. So don't think on too grand a scale (unless you can afford to buy multiple sets).
A few details, some good, some bad:
- There is a transition tile from snowy terrain to paved dungeon, but the color is off and doesn't match the rest of the snow terrain. Irritating.
- There are some nice 1x1 and 2x2 tiles of ice outcroppings, ice sculptures, and even an ice throne. On the reverse of each is a pile of shattered ice shards for when they get damaged in combat. A nice touch.
- The cavern wall tiles don't extend the wall to the corner vertex of the tile, so the walls never line up nicely.
- There is not a good transition tile from snow cave to normal cave, except for one tile that shows an underground stream flowing out of a snowbank. Have fun
I made the decision to tone down the tech i was using so i bought this and a few others and i must admit, my players enjoyed being able to physically move their minis across the board. it gives them a better visual then just staring at a screen.
From my aspect it much easier to piece tiles together the night before than it is to spend hours creating custom maps on my laptop.
I highly recommend this for any DM who is considering going with tiles.
I'm only going 3-star on this one because there were just too many "uni-tasker" tiles for me. Like the tile on the cover: it's bold and memorable... great for a set-piece encounter, but so memorable that I wouldn't want to use it in two games with the same players. I think dungeon tiles should focus on re-usability... let me draw the truly "unique" maps on my dry-erase battle grid or gaming paper.
I actually like it when they make sets with open range tiles or tree tiles. Keep the setting specific tiles like table, chairs, other features on smaller separate tiles. This set does this very well.

Great tile set. 2 of this set would open up a lot more placement options, but not necessary. A great addition to any ice or winter themed campaign.Published 17 months ago by Jason
Hard to incorporate into a dungeon, you will probably need to buy 3 or 4 sets to have a decent amount of ground to manifest a dungeonPublished 19 months ago by Jon B
It would have been nice to have more of a variety of out door scenes included. I'm running an D&D adventure in Icewind Dale and I could use more out door scenes like snow banks... Read morePublished on April 20, 2014 by Jamie
These templates work very well with my son board game Warhammer Quest and if I ever need another one I will know right where to come find one.Published on March 9, 2014 by David L. Whittaker
Nice collection of maps, but very little detail. These caverns could be anywhere, and they bear little resemblance to Icewind Dale.Published on January 18, 2014 by jaydynomite
