Now that we're here and the tiles are coming in slowly has there been any painting videos posted? It was said below that "Erin and I are shooting new painting videos for DoD." Has this happened? Today I received my Zaltar's Gameroom Tiles! Awesome and ready to order my paints! Right now I'm looking at Earth Stone, Olive Dry Brush, Stone Edge Dry Brush and Deep Lava as recommended. Not going with the Base Gray, but I worry about whether this is a bad choice for the first coat!?

For sure, but that's a crutch. Sometimes I want to leave things black. It's not a big deal when I know I'm painting over it. But I wouldn't buy the black again, whereas I'd buy a case of dungeon gray and stone edge if paint didn't go bad.

A quick drybrush of just about anything will knock off the gloss and not kill the black. Note the goremaw mouth area, that is DF black.

I like all the paints except for black. It comes out a bit too glossy for my tastes. But I have gotten a ton of mileage out of the KS1 painting videos and colors. Even mixing paint to match dungeon gray as a starting point for other items comes off well usually.

I am really enjoying DF paints as a basecoat for my large bones painting projects. They stick very well even without washing the bones and other paints stick well to them. Saving me a ton of washing and other work.

What would like to see is the paints (and Guide) coming out at the same time as pledge manager so you can buy the paints with your pledge and that means the 'new' colours that may be required to paint it.
I remember getting city stuff unpainted and then having to wait until the stucco, terracotta colours arrived before I could paint those items.
That said would not paint in any other paints as I love DF paints for their resistance to scratching and general robustness. I often now use on all my non-DF model boats/buildings, resin furniture etc.
No rest for the wicked!

The big question unfortunately is what color the base "grey" dwarvenite will be this time. Personally I do not really noticed but some do.

You may need a base coat. Any word from DF on base color this time around?
I really hope it matches KS1 tiles, please lord I hope KS5 unpainted matches KS1.
We have asked the factory to match the base dungeon gray color of KS1 pieces. Erin and I are shooting new painting videos for DoD. The steps for the basic dungeon pieces are not difficult depending on how closely you want to match the factory paint jobs, or our studio paint jobs.

I liked watching those videos again, a blast from the past.
