KS6.66 - UNPAINTED PIECES

Post by JenneyOC » Wed Jun 19, 2019 1:25 am

Q: Is there a possibility of a Dungeon Gray option for these pieces for those of us who do not paint? The yellow pieces are not going to go well with all the other Dwarven Forge terrain on my tabletop

A: Currently there is no dungeon grey paint scheme to these pieces. Many of them have been repurposed from caverns deep, so that is where the dungeon grey paint scheme is available currently for those pieces. There are a few add-ons sets which may get unlocked in the Standard Gray caverns paint, but Valoria is still in negotiations with the factory and cannot comment on that possibility as of yet.

Q: Question regarding unpainted. I understand that the pieces are cast in translucent yellow which would cause difficulties, but when painting could you apply a light blue (or other colors) to change the crack illuminated color? It would be cool to have the same illumination effects in other colors like a bright blue light or possibly green. Does that make sense?

A: You could certainly tint it with other paint colors (or other colored transparencies slipped between the light box and the tile) but yes there will be limits given the yellow nature of the casting material.
We couldn’t really do full clear with these, as we want the illumination to diffuse throughout the piece. And the most important consideration is that it looks like fantastic lava whether lit, or unlit.

-----

Q: So every piece is made with Infernite? (i.e. Translucent Yellow Dwarvenite)

A: We are still working on negotiation with the factory. Nate is confinent that they will be able to twist the factory’s arm enough to allow them to cast the standard cavern pieces in grey, but until we get official confirmation of that agreement, it is best to assume all pieces are yellow until we hear differently.

-----

Q: If you get the Spouted Floor Pack unpainted - There is no difference between Standard Caverns and Lava correct since they both will be cast in yellow dwarvenite, correct?

A: We are still working that issue out with the factory. We’d prefer for the Cavern paint versions of the Spouted Floor (and Large Banks, etc) to be cast in Grey. They don’t like changing the casting material colors mid-production run though, and charge is a hefty premium for it.

-----

Q: if the standard cavern banks are in translucent yellow, will they react to the light panel?

A: Any piece made from the translucent yellow will react delightfully on the light panel, yes. We are still working on twisting the factory’s arm to cast them in grey, which is our first choice. But we will let you know as soon as we know anything.
