This is so cool! This is how I'm going to paint ALL my caverns.
Zie ginds komt de stoomboot
Uit Spanje weer aan.
Hij brengt ons Sint Nikolaas,
Ik zie hem al staan.
Hoe huppelt zijn paardje
Het dek op en neer!
Hoe waaiend de wimpels
Al heen en al weer!

That is really nice, but I cannot see the blue at all.

Hey all, thanks for the kind comments on this paint scheme. Here's a few more pics of a random layout from the pieces of a KS2 base set plus Kickstarter add-ons.

The photos really wash out the blue of the tiles for whatever reason, and make them look more greyish black than blue, but the natural tones are really nice and subtle. The paints are not glow in the dark to my knowledge, though they do sort of pop in low light conditions, especially on the stalactites and calcium deposit areas.

I'll get the paints together and write up a process for this soon.

Hey all,

Here's the first few painted pieces for my Underdark caverns from Kickstarter 2. Basic painting was pretty easy, the fun bit came from some cool neon paints and washes that really make things pop.

Image

I'll need to find some more colors to use for the mushrooms, but I really like the neon green in the cracks, makes it look like some kind of bio-luminescent algae is growing.

I was also going to try a purple scheme, but I think I like this one too much to bother :D Excited to see what new things Dwarven Forge will give us for KS6.

OP, please respond to the questions! This is awesome!

WOW! Are these true glow-in-the dark type paints? That would be too cool for a low-room-light scene....

Wonderful paint job, as always. Your username really fits...

Have you ever tried experimenting with UV-reactive fluorescent material?
