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.

Ok, I see it now, thanks. Not sure what colors he used to put it together, but the moss green DF paint might do the job well. I really like that color though it might be a bit brighter than the orc green he is using. The DF color sludge might work well also as it is a darker green but still kinda murky looking. You can get those for really cheap, and in rally big bottles at the store.

OK, watched another video .... "Pokorny Pre Mixed Extra Fine Grade Colours" on YouTube. Now, will the four base paints be offered for $29 again, or just need to shell out $40?

I got the color from the Basic Painting Techniques Video under the Tutorial menu. It's discussed (and mixed) at 1:20 and 3:09.

Do you have a pic of the color "orc green?" I do not remember where it was.
