Re: KS3 Painting Guide Errors?

I like the Pokorny paints. But I do not have all of them.Rather than wait to mid next month I used some products I had on hand. The next step was a dry brush of Heritage brick. I try to use pre mixed colors so that I can match the paint later,some times years later. I do not have the lava red so I ...

Re: KS3 Painting Guide Errors?

My .02 Lupins... I think you have a good base going with the bricks. Keep experimenting - if you have access to other paints (hobby (vallejo, etc.) or craft (folk art, americana, etc) then find some terra cotta or sienna colors, and play around. One advantage of using a stock premixed color is repe...

Re: KS3 Painting Guide Errors?

I believe the painting guides are mixing the current stock of paints... and that new paints will be available in March. Terricotta and others ... but all paint jobs are different with different ambient temps and different stock paints. DF paints are custom made, yes, but they are not the paints tha...

Re: KS3 Painting Guide Errors?

For reference this is a photo (using the same iPhone 5S camera and Ott Lamp) of the paints next to a pre-painted terra-cotta roof.

I put in the actual yellow and orange colors as comparison.

KS3 Painting Guide Errors?

I'm trying to do the street bricks as that seemed like the simplest test. My plan is to start with the guide, but I think it is wrong. I have one each of all of the Pokorny paints. My result looks nothing like the photos. Step 4 of the sewer drain has you painting the brick highlights with Cardboard...

Re: Teaser Texture Photo

I can't see the seams in the wall, but of course this is a prototype so probably not properly modularized yet. Or they're considering things like 2x2 walls. Tough to say from the photo. I like the photos that have shown more horizontal depth / features. For instance the arrow slit walls for KS3 are ...

Re: Leaked Photo #2

work with... presumably, a specially made rounded wall section... specialized pieces that only work in a single predefined setting. I'm going to make an educated guess that these stairs are made to fit (both height and curvature) the rounded tower wall pieces we have already seen. Probably they hug...

Re: Leaked Photo #2

As much as I like this, I hope it doesn't mean that we're going to have too many one-off elements. The primary reason I like DF tiles is because they're that - tiles. The city is a pretty good compromise, however I was pretty disappointed at how the floor sections aren't quite 2 tiles wide. This fla...

Re: Leaked Photo #1

I was a little disappointed with my grab-bag minis. Not the minis themselves, but the paint jobs seemed far less impressive than all of the images I've seen of others. Especially my beer-wielding denizen --hopefully their paint job is not indicative of the quality of purchased minis. After all, the...
