I primed with Army Painter Matte Black spray first.

2nd Layer: Daffodil Yellow (Folkart)
3rd Layer: Vivid Orange (Folkart)
4th Layer: Bright Red (Apple Barrel)
5th Layer: Burnt Umber (Apple Barrel)
6th Layer: Black (Apple Barrel)

Ice:

1st Layer: True Blue (Folkart)
2nd Layer: Ocean Cruise (Folkart)
3rd Layer: China Blue (Apple Barrel)
4th Layer: White (Apple Barrel)

Wow, I'm a slow painter. Been working slowly and steadily on my fire tiles. Going for a cooled lava look for the bricks with molten rock in between them where the mortar would be.

More pictures. I need a better camera; the colors look terrible. Sorry.

Tried it with some better lighting with a few pieces... (camera colors are still off, even with some photoshop editing... oh well)

I know you're done your tiles, but for anyone else (including me, as I'm going to try doing at least a floor tile to test) here's a link to a fantastic mini painting with detailed steps for reference:

wappellious.blogspot.ca/2013/05/playing-with-fire-part-one-painting.html
wappellious.blogspot.ca/2013/05/painting-with-fire-golem-continues.html

I wouldn't do all of those steps... unless I was a perfectionist... oops! I am.

Anyways, I like your example tiles. I would imagine those are more accurate pictures.

Here's a pic of the final product, so you can see without clicking on the links:

Yeah, that's a more color-accurate picture of what my tiles look like.

However, the paint job is better than my poor attempt at "painting." :) I did try to layer the colors from white -> yellow -> orange -> red -> burnt umber -> black to get the transition from hot to cooled.

I like the way the whole dungeon cam out. I think I found my paint job for my next set of unpainted DF game tiles.

@AnimeSensei,

Don't sell yourself short. I really do like your example tiles... I just added the link to the golem because his process is rather detailed and maybe could help inspire others or give them further ideas. I think your paint job works very well with the tiles.

I'm actually inspired by yours to try it out on about 25 of my floor tiles. I won't do the walls at all as I see the tiles acting as a lava barrier for the players to figure out how to traverse, more than a whole dungeon setting. And, by only doing a limited amount of tiles I'll be able to add more detail and layering .

Here's my take on the lava tile. I also did a sandstone version and the 3rd one is the default paint scheme. I finally started to paint my tiles... figured I should do it before the next KS starts ;-)


It's interesting, the camera loses the orange.



As I mentioned in an earlier post here I'm doing a limited set of tiles like this so I have the time to put the layers and detail into them. I think it's missing some yellow and orange/red wash to give it a glow effect.

Edit:
I should add that I tried following the walkthrough for the golem from the links I posted earlier, but I didn't have the fluorescent paint so what I used instead was the yellow ink from a fluorescent marker. That seemed to work pretty good. I didn't have an orange fluorescent marker so I just added the yellow to it which made the orange a bit more yellow than I would have liked. I think I'm going to be taking a drive to my local game store and picking up some fluorescent paint tomorrow.

Yeah, your pics came out better, but it's weird how the camera loses some of the color. I thought it was lighting or contrast with other objects in the picture at first, but I think it's just my camera.

Looks great!

How did the flourescent paint work for you? If it worked well, I'm thinking I may go back and try it as well. I think mine are passable, but having the magma pop would look better, IMHO.
