Just curious. The curiosity is related to the detail I'm putting into the DF Inventory Spreadsheet.

My T&MI Set's coin stacks differ in color from those of the medium and large piles.
While I have coin stacks that appear to be mostly Silver or Copper, the one that I would assume should have been Gold is, for the most qll intents and purposes, black.
Just wondering if this was skipped during the painting process or if this is what this stack was supposed to look like.
Thanks for other owners of the set for confirming.

Think the painter accidentially skipped your coin stack.

I own 2 T&MI sets and all of the coins stacks are colored
corresponding to the coin piles.

btw. i have a corridor that has a black floor, so the
acidentially skipping of a paintjob on your coin stack
is not the only one. (i painted the corridor myself in correponding color)

Well, I have two of those sets and can confirm that all coin piles are colored. But it seems that especially the golden ones darken with the time. Currently they look already very similar to the copper ones, which also seem to slighlty darken over time. Maybe they need some repaint soon.

Thanks for the info, both of you.
GK, I'm glad you were able to paint the corridor to your satisfaction. It's just hard to imagine anyone putting a Black (Unpainted) Corridor into a styrefoam (sp) box. You'd think people would learn to LOOK and watch what they are doing. Makes me want to slap those people up side the head. :)

Weaverjk -

Don't waste your energy with the upside the head; these days, most packers, even in low-tech areas such as too much of mainland China, are machines. You try an 'upside the head' with one of those, and I'll come see you in hospital while they glue your hand back together!
On the gripping hand, however, if you can catch up with the QC crew, let me know. I'll hold them so you can get a better wind-up and swing! THOSE are usually the culprits in an "OOPS!" such as this one.

See ya!

LOL I can see me trying to beat the snot out of a packing machine. And us cashing down QC and wrestling them to the ground for a bruising. ;)

Yeah; right after I typed that yesterday, my left knee (the one I did a one-point landing over a 6' fence 40 years ago!) turned around and looked up and said "You wanna do WHAT? No Way, Jose!" and promptly started aching.
So much for hot pursuit of QC techs, let alone flying tackle take-downs. That damn knee kept me out of even trying for a Green Beanie a l-o-n-g time ago.
But the thought alone can keep ya warm on a cold winter's night...

See ya!

Think of it as a rare opportunity to have a totally unique DF piece.

Get your finest paintbrush and a magnifying glass and paint each coin individually. You can mix coin types (copper, gold, and silver), or you can add tin (silver mixed with a little grey?). You could paint them "iron" to be a leprechaun's treasure that has reverted. You could paint them green, jade coins from the Far East. You could paint them to look like little biscuits, and give your players a treasure of dwarven or elvish field rations that will keep them strong and healthy for weeks.

So many options are open to you. You're so lucky that piece was missed by the painters and the QC people!

I would just get some metallic paint of the appropriate colours (I would recommend Games Workshop's range) and do a dry brush of a bronze colour followed by another drybrush of gold over the top (obviously only after the first coat had dried). If you really want to go to town, you could even then add some thinned brown ink (about 50/50 ink/water) to give the coins 'depth.'

This is my method for painting coins/loot from other dungeon dressings that I have bought unpainted - shouldn't take long as long as you have the paints handy.

ROFL. Thanks, Jackattack. It's good to be optomistic - sadly, I'm not. I love the creative ideas. I've only painted two or three figures in my life. I wast that good then and my hands are much too shaky now.
I suppose if I ever try painting agian, the coins is a good place to start. Hey, I've got some green car touch-up paint...how about those jade coins? ;)
