KS1 Tiles (Earth Stone doesn't match) 7 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
I recently bought some unpainted dungeon tiles to go along with my painted dungeon tiles from the original KS. I followed the paint video by Stefan, but the end result does not match the prepainted sets that I bought. The really difficult part of matching is the fact that the Earth Stone color is much darker than what was used on the prepainted tiles. Has anyone had any luck painting tiles to at least reasonably color match?

I'm starting to regret buying painted sets. It would have been far better to paint everything myself to guarantee I could always get everything to match.

The closest I could find locally to match the preprinted sets was Tamiya XF-52 Flat Earth for the darker bricks, followed by XF-55 Deck Tan for the top dry brush. My painted sets varied quite a bit as well, though, and in the end I decided to redo the paint job myself to get the look I wanted. I just dry brushed over the top with he colors I wanted, and I'm pretty happy with the result.

Easy call here, just repaint the whole deal. That's what I had to do.

Try mixing some of the stone edge dry brush in to lighten the color.
