Just verifying, those are painted prototypes and not factory painted pieces, right?
Yes these are studio painted prototypes. We have gotten in some test shots of these and are very happy with the factory paint jobs. You can see pictures of them in one of the pre-Christmas kickstarter updates.
Here is a picture for today. It includes a mix of studio prototypes and factory pieces.

Nice!

I am so glad I got a bunch of bridges...

Yeah, being particular about the version would be appreciated.

Fire ants are the few creatures who can easily navigate the labyrinthine tunnel of the Khri Colony. If they are lucky they will find unprotected Khri eggs to eat. If they are unlucky, they may end up as a meal for mama Khri.

Thanks for the reply Nina - will have to try to track one of those down - would look fabulous as an entrance to the Shrine of Shushhhhh

Loving the pictures - reminbds us what we could build with enough Dwarvenite.

I think what would be an awesome feature is a gallery with the ability to "like" a photo. The system could have a sort feature by category (inns, castles, caverns, outdoors, dungeons, etc) and the number of likes; some of the truly inspiring builds would be easily accessible. Plus it would give some people encouragement to try to get on that leaderboard so it would likely up the quality of builds done by us board members and also our photography skills. :) It would also be free advertising for DF! I know you would get lots of hits from search engines if the galleries became popular.
This is a great idea! I will pass this along to Nate.

A city is really hard to maintain when so much danger inhabits the sewers below. The rat and lizard folk often come up to destroy the town, but the people are hard working enough to rebuild from the ashes.

Don't forget Law, Tom, William, Sorn, and our other master builders!
A fair point. Feymous's photography is what sucked me into the obsessive world of Dwarven Forge though, so her builds are my favorite.

We would love to compile beautiful customer build pictures from here, maybe you guys can point me in the right direction to find those?
There is a "Castle Builds" thread in the KS4 post-campaign sectin of the forums where, I think, most of the build photos are concentrated. There are many more scattered about in many threads. Think of it as a treasure hunt....
Search field = 'Feymous' :D
