Yeah, as someone who hand paints all their tiles, I'd also really like it to match up (since quite a lot of the "base color" shows through in my resulting paint job).
Can't one solve this problem just by using a slightly heavier base coat?

Please please please make sure that the KS5 tiles unpainted are the same Dark color they where in KS1 and not like the lighter color that is KS4. That way when we paint them they will match KS1.

Here is a thread with a primer that nearly matches the original "dungeon gray."

Here is hoping!!!!

I think I can work it out but I hope not to base coat, but sounds like I'll have to do my walls like that at least.

This is one thing which is really unsettling for me. I spend a lot of my gaming budget on DF and expect to get a high quality product.
For example I'm going to using mainly KS3 battlements, if the color doesn't match that will be a huge bummer for me...

Has there been any comment from DF regarding the paint? It seems terrible from photos...

I agree with color changes and had not known about the unpainted ksiv . I hope I can paint it to match my KSIII.😬
From what I have on hand, I think you'll need to probably base coat in a grey to get it to match 100%, but depending on your paint job you might be ok as I've noticed it's not terribly perceptible from a distance unless you're looking for it. I will say however the different colors of drybrush in the prepainted pieces are very perceptible.

Excellent point.

Size. Color. All these things are important to maintain through the years. This goes for everything. The tint in the Olive paint should be the same when I buy more for KS5 as it was when I bought it for KS1.
