A Modest Proposal 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
No, i don't think we should eat children...

Like many of you i am anxiously awaiting my loot. I am already looking toward getting more, either buying individually from DF (if they go that route) or picking up a few additional pieces via trade or the secondary market.

It strikes me that there will soon be 3 types of tiles - unpainted, "Expertly Hand Painted" by Dwarven Forge, and magnificently painted by everyone else. Since "Expertly Hand Painted" is such a generic term (lets face it there are a lot of expert painters in this community...) i would like to suggest that the community adopt the term "Forge Painted" for pieces that were painted by DF. This will help distinguish these pieces from other hand painted pieces that may appear for sale or trade.

What say the masses?

Nothing against the idea. Has a better ring to it than "pre-painted." Professionally painted might also work, although someone might commission a set to be painted, so that is not uniquely descriptive.

60050I like the idea of "Forge Painted" for painted by Dwarven Forge....

I also propose that unpainted tiles painted by fellow Addicts be called "Forged" painted..... LOL

I really look forward to seeing some of the awesome paint jobs that i am sure many of you will create...many of you I know are experienced miniature painters and although most of you will because of time constraints will most likely choose the fastest route to paint hundreds of tiles...I am sure that some of you will indeed take it to another level, with lots of colors and maybe even added glazes, washes, and even lichen? Customization?

Totally agree Stefan, i just want a way to differentiate what matches my existing to what adds to the setup...

I am really hoping that an enterprising DF loyalist makes some custom paints available to those of us who don't have the time to paint... I for one would love to see some wet hallways, mineral streak deposits on the wall and glazed floors (nothing like difficult terrain to make combat harder!)

I feel like you just launched the tip of a VERY big and VERY cool iceberg ;)
