We did not get ours from the KS but from the store a couple of years ago and they are painted like the set Stefan is holding.

We would be disappointed with those :(

My guess is the factory is tired of alternate paint jobs, as they stated with KS6.66.

Yeah, from the beginning they were supposed to be two different paints. I remember it being talked about and it is written right on the add-on graphic. I never got the full pack so do not know about changes.
You may be right, I swore that in the original conversation about minis Stefan or Nate had said that they were not planning to do different paint schemes and it was added later but the below pic from the update where the townsfolks were announced does already have the "Each painted mini comes in 2 different paint styles" already tacked on, and the other picture even shows some alternate paint scheme. Unless they did an announcement in the KS comments for one paint scheme and then altered it to two when the official update came out. Either way two good quality paint schemes is better than one not so good.

I actually just got mine, and have to say probably the most disappointing thing I’ve got from DF so far. Each of my pairs are painted the same (which I kind of expected), but they’re all very similar colours - mostly dark greens and brown/cream.

Dunno, I think I was just expecting a bit more. Particularly with the “noble” model.

I would have loved mine to look like astolats ones.
I'd be disappointed too. I ordered from the KS and the ones I got are A) different colors and B) more skillfully painted. I'm sorry.

That said, I am 100% sure that DF will take them back and provide a refund if you are not happy with them.

It really doesn’t worry me that much - I think I was just expecting more.

Like gwhansen said, they’re only there to fill out taverns and streets etc.

I like muted colors but not that they are no longer different paint schemes, but originally DF did not plan to make them different so I guess the new ones are more like what was originally promised.
Did not back that KS and bought the minis from the webshop but it´s actually written on the bottom of the Addon picture you posted that they would be painted differently. Or is it something i´m missing. However in my case when I ordered from the webshop I believed that there would not be any difference so I got what I expected.

I bought a set just after the KS and split them with someone. At the time, the sets were painted as twins. I liked them we) enough. The subdued colors look like real folks with access to vegetable dyes.
