I've noticed that...

One of these days I'm going to try repainting one of DF's own pieces to match the lighter shade of some of my Hirst Arts pieces. I'll post pictures if I ever do it!

Thanks Willypold, hey in the overhead pic you can see the " annoying " difference in DF own paint jobs. LOL.....

Yup, there's definitely been a change recently. Older DF stuff is a sort of yellowish-brownish-grey, with a very flat finish. Newer DF stuff, like from the Fantasy Floor and Starter sets, has more blue in it and a glossier finish.

It's not just in the Fantasy Line, i have two sets of the Sci-Fi line that are almost Bright Silver, while the first sets are much darker with more ink washing on them (?)...

It isn't just only the paint job. I noticed when I build up the level 2 of my dungeon that there is a difference in size as well between pieces.

When I build up Level 2 (to be posted in the next half an hour - pictures are on the other PC) I tried put a Grendel trap in the middle of a small passage. It was a very tight fit.

Interestingly it would fit with some of the small passages but not with others. It might be only as much as 1 mm difference - you won't notice if you look at the pieces.

Interestingly I seem to remember that I bought one small passage set and later a few small passages extra.

Having not yet looked at the paint - but might have a look if paint also differs.

My guess is - these might differ from one production run to the next. It is difficult to keep everything exactly the same - or you pay a lot of money for quality assurance that this is exactly the case.

Off course over time there might be even more changes Are they all still produced by the same company in China ??

I don't really mind all that much. When put together in a really big room I was a bit worried that they would look Ehhh Bad but the variations kinda looked nice. Maybe like a brick layer putting a few diff colors in sometimes for a design. I need more floors....
