I actually just got mine, and have to say probably the most disappointing thing I’ve got from DF so far. Each of my pairs are painted the same (which I kind of expected), but they’re all very similar colours - mostly dark greens and brown/cream.

Dunno, I think I was just expecting a bit more. Particularly with the “noble” model.

I would have loved mine to look like astolats ones.
Those are awful :shock: Looking at them closer they look more like they where painted the same but one has a brown wash and one has a black wash on it.

Up close they look pretty much identical. If there is a different wash they’re almost too similar to matter.

Not much I can do about it. Just makes me weary of buying random packs of minis going forward.

So i also ordered some townspeople recently thinking they would look like astolats and they look exactly like the ones Timcz83 received (identical to those as far as I can tell). They all kind of look the same and I was disappointed. However, they are (mostly) just for filling in towns and taverns so its hardly the end of the world but still...astolats look so much better :cry:

DFs minis are awful dark in paint. I got the minis sample pack and was a bit disappointed by it.

It's not ideal, but you could always go over a few of them yourself with a brush to add variation.

Mass produced painted minis are always going to be on the rough side.

Ordered during latest restock and mine are also the same. Was expecting that and did not now at the time that DF had made them with different paint scheme and it would have been a nice surprise if they still did it that way.

I bought a set just after the KS and split them with someone. At the time, the sets were painted as twins. I liked them we) enough. The subdued colors look like real folks with access to vegetable dyes.

I like muted colors but not that they are no longer different paint schemes, but originally DF did not plan to make them different so I guess the new ones are more like what was originally promised.

Did not back that KS and bought the minis from the webshop but it´s actually written on the bottom of the Addon picture you posted that they would be painted differently. Or is it something i´m missing. However in my case when I ordered from the webshop I believed that there would not be any difference so I got what I expected.

Yeah, from the beginning they were supposed to be two different paints. I remember it being talked about and it is written right on the add-on graphic. I never got the full pack so do not know about changes.
