I can paint basics quickly. Floors and classic walls are no problem (given my limited experience). But give me a door or an accent piece and I bog down because I like the detail. My pillar painting experiments indicate vaulted dungeons will be a bit slow but not unbearable. I'm going to focus on what I truly need for my first DF-enhanced encounter and I'll go from there.

Good luck on the painting, all!

I'm like Period3; I'm slow. I'm kind of meticulous, and that's my issue.

I must be doing something wrong. I ordered KS4 unpainted. In two evenings I can finish about a dozen pieces. In total I bought over 500 pieces. I have a looooonggg way to go. I won't be buying unpainted again.
Mayhap you haven't hit your stride yet. Maybe it's your organization. Or perhaps you are very detail oriented in your paint schemes.

I painted about a bajillion pieces of KS4 in abour 3 weeks. That's working 2, maybe 3 hours at a time, maybe a few extra hours on weekends. I didn't basecoat anything for most pieces - went right to initial drybrushing. I left all the pieces with most details until last (doors/hatches, flags/pennants, most stretch goal pieces). I don't know what my total piece count was, but my pledge was about 4K. The only things I got painted were cathedral roofs, and whatever KS3-type add-ons there were.

I went a bit light on KSV and despite that am not really worried about painting it all. It will take me a full day, maybe two, as painting dwarvenite is not hard at all. No washing, or such needed. Just pick three colors or so, and go to town. It is tedious, for sure, but it is not hard to get results as good as or better than the DF paint job.

Fanatic's Trove is a great looking set. I really like the smashed wall and rubble pieces - not to mention the corner door. The beauty of the encounter sets is that they really stir the imagination. Just looking at them you can probably think of two or three scenarios they fit, not to mention what can be done with the original pieces. I think presenting them as encounters really ups the sale value, because people can see a vanilla build immediately.

Slow to the party, but this thread made me go look at exactly what I had ordered. The hardest thing for me to not get was the jade version of the Shrine. As cool as it was, I ended up dropping it for other things mainly because I would probably only get to use it once or twice, although I did end up getting a few of the smaller Jade packs.

@Rabbit, my reasoning was similar to you (but I have a bunch of Cavern and Dungeon pieces):
Gorgon tiers because its good value and GOLEMS .... EIGHT GOLEMS!!!!
GOLEMS .... EIGHT GOLEMS!!!!

cant wait to get our paws on these badboys!
To be sure! The Golems that come out of the wall are BAD ASS. I would have bought the set even if it didn't save me buying additional wall and corner pieces, just for the Golems.

:shock: Your whole order is unpainted.
This almost makes me break out in hives. If there is something I want and painted is sold out, I will paint it, but the thought of painting THOUSANDS of pieces...

Mad props for your painting fortitude!
I'll likely be painting for a long time. Floors first, and they're easy... I'll probably paint some classic walls or passage walls next depending on need. They're pretty easy, too. Ledges will be early on - once they arrive; they're simple. I have a set of KSI doors painted already, so I can wait a little there... It all comes down to what pieces will make my life as a GM more sane.

Also, I figure almost half of my stuff will be in a sandstone finish, but none of the GMs in my group need that right now. Jade Shrine is also a "later" set piece. Once I pare it down, it's manageable. I have no idea what I'll do once KSVI comes rolling up to my doorstep, though!
I did that with two sets of Caverns - they're brown, like a dark cave - but painting that nearly drove me nuts (it didn't take too long, but I was ready to use it). The pools and mold on the cavern walls I obsessed over. Other than that it goes pretty fast. But still.
You are a FAR more patient person than I.
