I agree. The set you painted looks pretty cool! I can picture it being used for a desert themed game like basic D&D module B4 - The Lost City.

OK, so based on everyone's feedback, I have finished painting my first of 17 Kickstarter sets (not counting Add-ons), and I used paint scheme number 2. I was getting frustrated because even though I was painting them the exact same way, they all came out significantly different. When I put them together though, I was astonished at how good they look together. All feedback welcome.




These look great.

That's the paint scheme I'll be using on my unpainted GameTiles, when I get to it.

For my second set of items I tried painting some of the doors and accessories. I found a combo of Reaper paints that almost exactly matches the DF factory for the doors and barrels. It is one part "Ruddy Brown" to one part "Golden Brown." It isn't an exact match, but it is close.

Then I tried to get really creative!! I love how the rust look turned out, but I wish I had placed it a little differently. I wish you could see the different layers of color, but it does not really show up in the picture.




And it inspired me to dig this guy out of the Reaper set. Again, I wish you could see the layers, but it just looks like one color of orange. The eye looks cool in the picture though. I was trying to give it that multi-eye "oil sheen" look.

Those items are turning out great! I find that the doors are in some ways the most challenging and interesting to paint. I like how you did the rust on the metal doors, that's a nice touch. And the barrels... those are just insanely time consuming to paint for such little things. I felt a genuine sense of accomplishment when I finally finished mine.

For the beds, I geeked out and did a little research on medieval dyes-- woad, weld, matter, the three standards for dark ages Europe-- to choose my colors for the coverlets.

Nabsten, what color did you use for the rust?

Yeah, I'd like to know your technique and colours for the rust too... your rust on the first door is virtually perfect, IMHO.

Re:Paint Schemes 6 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
My metal doors are done with Reaper Paints. The base coat is approximately 2 parts Noir Black to 1 part Honed Steel. Then I did a drybrush of Honed Steel, which is why some of the metal still has a shine to it.

The rust itself is actually 4 layers of paint. Like I said, the layers don't show up well here, I need better lighting/better camera. I did both of the doors a little differently. Here are the paint combinations I used.

1. Two parts Ruddy Brown, One part Burning Orange
2. One part Ruddy Brown, One part Burning Orange
3. Burning Orange
4. Lava Orange (This one is really bright, so be very careful with the placement)

On the right door, I used a small flat drybrush for the first two steps and then used a stippling brush for the last two steps. For the one on the left, I did the same thing, but instead of drybrushing with the drybrush, I used it like the stippling brush. This gave a little wider coverage than the stippling brush, but still had some of that "spotty" look you get from it.

Great paint job!

The best rust paint jobs I've seen on the net used pigments.
