I don't have a single piece of factory-painted KS1 so I can't comment on that aspect, but I can happily report that the Dwarvenite base colors on KS1 and 5 are identical to my eye. (The Burrows are a different, brown color as shown in one of the updates. But everything so far is a match to KS1 plastic.)

The drybrush layer does not really look like Stone Edge to me, it has a bit of Olive or maybe Cavern Dry Brush shade to it. I'll experiment tonight on a couple unpainted pieces if I can find time.

I would say paint it however it looks good to you - Factory paint is nice but custom can easily be even nicer. Match your handpaint KS1 if you like them!

Yeah, I'd love to see this as well.

Could someone post some pictures of KS1 pieces next to KS5 pieces? I would like to compare the paintjobs before starting to paint my KS5 pieces, to make sure I make them match as much as possible. Thanks in advance.
