#1 still looks greenish to me. I'm sure it's the lighting. It really should be more grey like #2.

@pacarat That would be good. I like having more change in tone between the pillars and the bricks. The vaulting can match either. Each part of #3 and #4 looks good to me, but neither really distinguishes the pillar...

I'm actually suddenly really interested in seeing a more red brick (almost like the street sidewalks, maybe darker) wall with maybe grey stone pillars and vaults. That could be really nice and interesting.

I like the stone of #3 with columns of #4.

Yep, my favorite is the one we're getting. The others are fun for specific environments, but for a general dungeon I like #1 the best. (Then #2, then #4, then #3) #4 definitely could look creepy with the right add-ons. Looks derelict.
I agree. Yes, I like your idea for #4.

I colour corrected in Photoshop... does this look a bit better?

It seems at first glance that the paint scheme of #2 might match the current batch of pre-painted Castle pieces or the stone walls of KS3 better than the factory job. I really like the contrast in #3. #4 looks as if it were one of the other ones except it is covered in a coating of dush, light ash, or spiderwebs - a long-buried tomb, or nearby natural disaster?

Alternate paint samples done with Pokorny paints

Post by LadySabelle » Wed Jun 21, 2017 3:29 am

I decided to paint some of the prototypes I got from Valoria. Each of these were done completely with existing paint colors with very little actual mixing, no washes or complex painting techniques. I wanted them to be as simple to do as possible, so that if anyone wanted to try them out, they could. The colors came out a little on the yellow side due to lighting and my camera.
Starting from the left side is:
1-The factory paint job
2-Base gray, cardboard (a few stones, pillars), 50/50 base gray and cavern dry brush, 50/50 base gray and stone edge dry brush
3-Earth stone, base gray (a few stones), cardboard (a few stones), cavern dry brush, stone edge dry brush
4-Olive dry brush, cardboard (a few stones, pillars) cardboard with a tiny tint of terracotta dry brush (a few stones), cavern dry brush, stone edge dry brush

Unless I specifically state that my information is directly from Valoria, my comments are just my own opinions.
