Hmmmm...another solution could be to paint them the "Gorgon Bronze" instead...that would be in line with how the rest of the pillars/snakes are done anyways....

So there’s no hope of a factory redo so that we can get jade pillars to, you know, go with the limited edition jade encounter we bought?

NB: I don’t have any DoD in hand yet (yes, us Aussies rolled a 1 on delivery), so my opinion is based on pics alone.
That would be my hope, but without knowing why it happened, wouldnt they have done it the first time if they could?

The pictures of the painted jade pillars from GenCon aren't stupendously bad. Disappointing a little, but not horrible. Now I'm conflicted; I really wanted jade pillars. Do I keep imperfect pillars and paint them to hide their worst defects, or do I try to get them switched out for plain so I can paint them in marble?

I'll want to see it in person to make a final decision, but I'm not sure I can see wanting to use these pillars with my jade pieces (I got painted of everything). Time will tell though.
Agreed, i want to see in person but i have like 14 of these jade pillars coming and im not a fan of the pics so far.

The actual jade pieces look amazing on the walls and other pieces.

Taken from Stefan's FB page. From what little you can see the set does look nice just can't tell about the pillars.
The pieces actually cast in jade Dwarvenite look spectacular to my amateur mineralogist's eye. I'm glad I got the set in jade, just disappointed in the painted pillars that I ordered an extra set of because I thought I'd like the jade that much.
