@Talistran ...my thoughts are that the factory ran out of time to attempt to redo them...DF isn't the only Client of theirs that wants their "stuff" created, shipped and delivered....

My hope is that they redo them in another order to the factory when they order re-stocks for the warehouse...

So there’s no hope of a factory redo so that we can get jade pillars to, you know, go with the limited edition jade encounter we bought?

NB: I don’t have any DoD in hand yet (yes, us Aussies rolled a 1 on delivery), so my opinion is based on pics alone.
That would be my hope, but without knowing why it happened, wouldnt they have done it the first time if they could?
Maybe. But we don’t know the reason for it in the first place. Perhaps it was too costly, or a mistake occurred in production that was deemed too costly to address, or any number of reasons, not all of which are “literally could not be done”. So, until DF tell us the why, I don’t know :).

It seems a very strange thing to me to simply paint over and hope no-one will notice/care.

Hmmmm...another solution could be to paint them the "Gorgon Bronze" instead...that would be in line with how the rest of the pillars/snakes are done anyways....

The pictures of the painted jade pillars from GenCon aren't stupendously bad. Disappointing a little, but not horrible. Now I'm conflicted; I really wanted jade pillars. Do I keep imperfect pillars and paint them to hide their worst defects, or do I try to get them switched out for plain so I can paint them in marble?
