Re: Painted vs Unpainted decision paralysis

One last thought, was there ever a discussion of the most annoying/demotivating pieces to paint. My first place in that category is hold by Tudor walls of KS 3. :( I think for me it's gonna be the serpent temple walls and bits done in Jade. Lots of masking needed, and I need to decide on how to fin...

Re: Castles Paint Scheme

Nuln Oil will darken your overall tone, sure, but I'd hate to know expensive washing a whole DF castle would be - you'd want something more like a wood stain or custom acrylic medium and ink mix for large quantities and a cheaper alternative. And I'd use some brown as well instead of just plain blac...

Re: Trifecta long swell wall right issues

I want to say it's either a 4x3 or 4x4 footprint (leaning towards 4x3 based on squares shown in the ledge part) and should have a perfectly rectangular footprint when combined as shown:

Re: A Brief Look at Factory Paint

Tested some Pokorny colors out last night - here's my results.

Factory stone colors:
Mix 4 parts Earth Stone to 1 part Base Wood

Factory drybrush:
Mix 3 parts Stone Edge Dry Brush to 1 part Olive Dry Brush

Hope that helps

Yep, the factory does indeed skip the base gray steps mentioned in the painting guide videos.

Re: A Brief Look at Factory Paint

Re: Epic spiral stairs

One of the first things I did with my stairs, great minds and all that! Sad it doesn't quite rest on the floor pieces, though, and stretches beyond 180 degrees. It does fit around a 4" tower or 2 rounded KS1 corner tiles. I'm particularly excited that we can do a raised dais with the 4" KS4 tower wa...

Just wanted to post a reference pic for anyone looking to copy the KS5 paint scheme. I've added a comparison of my paint scheme, which is based on Pokorny Base Gray and a variety of drybrush layers and earth tones airbrushed onto the bricks (two overbrushed gray highlights, five airbrushed brick col...
