Taken from Stefan's FB page. From what little you can see the set does look nice just can't tell about the pillars.

Here's a side-by-side of an unpainted jade wall next to a pillar.

The difference in color isn't astounding when the pieces are against a background, but they're really brought out when light passes through the jade parts. The wall is creamy, the pillar looks like the light is passing through paint on the surface and remains darker in color.

Here's a light-enabled version... https://photos.app.goo.gl/KwjQqF2WpH3b28RW9

I don't think any painted Shrine pieces have been sent out yet, just unpainted.

Anybody have pictures yet of the Painted Jade Pillars next to other jade pieces?

I have a bunch of jade pillars (painted) coming. Providing the assumedly painted Jade of the pillar doesn't match the unpainted Jade material on the rest, I am going to ask for DF to replace them with factory replacements that are done right.

I bought one set unpainted and 2 sets painted not including the set that should come with the painted shrine. Will need to see how the painted ones look before I decide what to do. But not happy with the unpainted ones at all not for the extra money they cost. I am going to wait until all the stuff come in before I see what will be done. I am missing a few things from my first 2 shipments so best to wait and do it all at one time. But I have not fear at all the DF will make things right they always have .

I think if I were getting painted I'd ask for marble replacements. As it is I'll ask for gray unpainted replacements for both my Shrine pillars and the add-on set. It will give me enough pillars to do my sandstone scheme, or maybe I'll try for white marble...

This looks like a production f-up on the factory's side of things.
I hope they go back and get them fabricated with the correct material.
Not having the pillars' jade match the jade on all the other Temple pieces is a major f-up.
Especially, since the Jade Temple is supposed to have been a limited run.
Will be interesting to see how DF handles this....

Sad to hear about the pillars. Mine haven't shipped yet. I wonder if I could get that fixed now?

Any idea how they plan on dealing with the pillars in the Shrine itself?
The “unpainted” pillars in my shrine set are in the same state as the pillars from the pillars set - half-ass paint job over clear dwarvenite.

I’m sending the whole box back and getting a grey box. Suggest you contact DF directly if you’re looking at other options. (I didnt go there.)
