Welcome to the sometimes painful process of matching DF Factory paint jobs.

I'm going to assume you are having the most trouble with the drybrush on DoD - I've found the rest of the instructions that are easier to find are pretty accurate. That being said, I spent a night this weekend working on as close a match for the drybrush stage as possible. Try this:

10 drops of Stone Edge
4 Drops of Olive
2 Drops of School Bus Yellow

Using a mid-pressure hand that did it for me. Keep in mind though that there is still going to be some variation between sets in KS5. For instance, the factory painted super nice curve stair packs are more yellow than the factory painted floor and wall tiles.

That video was from the first kickstarter and sadly does not match the factory paint.

I'm also eagerly awaiting new "how to paint" videos.

KS5 Painting guide(s) for newbs.

Hey Jenney,

I spotted a few guides on painting for the earlier KS and was hoping to get similar ones for KS5. Do you know if this is on the cards? I am going unpainted with my pledge as i am on a bit of a budget (add AU shipping + US-->AU exchange rates) and dont have a lot of experience with painting.

Would love some guides on KS5 :)

Strid3s.
