Here are the Wall posts from CBS which I commissioned a very young and talented painter to do for me. I think they are very nice.
These are rockstar awesome. I may have to try my hand at tweaking a few posts in this fashion. Thanks for sharing.

I have some clear Avery labels suitable for my colour laser printer. This just got me wondering how it would look on the dwarvenite sign....

Those are great!!!
Indeed! Does he want to do some more? - I bet he could make a set for each of us and turn a tidy profit! (How much could shipping be on such little signs?!)

I will admit that I always paint a couple test pieces be for I commit to a paint scheme, and the first couple cavern pieces I went for more of a brown look and didn't like how it turned out and had to scrub the paint off. For me there is definitely some trial and error.

Don't be afraid to paint any of this stuff. It is not hard to make it look good. For caverns just use dark gray or a dark beige for a base coat, then use an off white cream color to the stalactites/mites (for contrast), and then do a light dry brush of Pokorny Cavern Dry brush and they will look great (better than preprinted). For the base coat use the spray cans like Dwarf or an air brush like I do. It gives you a nice smooth base to work from and makes painting time much faster.

For stucco building I just base coat everything a dark brown then use Pokorny stucco for the stucco (great color and looks amazing), and use a dry brush of Pokorny cardboard to bring out the gain in the wood (like it better than Pokorny wood paint). You have to be a little careful painting the stucco to keep it off the wood.

Most of castles should be real easy to paint.

FYI: prior to painting KS1 dungeons I had done no painting (and I am still just learning). I learned to paint thanks to Stefan's videos. That is where I learned I enjoyed painting. I have learned so much by painting DF.
