15 unpainted sets - who ordered this? 5 Months, 4 Weeks ago  
Went and picked up the dwarven forge kickstarter dwarvenite sets I ordered with a friend this spring. We had the 15 sets and 16 addons delivered to a package receiver in maine and drove over - 1 hr trip - to pick them up rather than pay the non-usa shipping fee.

4 * 35 lb boxes. Fortuneately my order partner had a form from his trip to gencon this year to cover the import taxes (sales tax). Yay!

10 unpaintedsets, 4 painted addons (3 dressing & 1 cos), and 7 unpainted addons for me

5 unpainted sets, 2 painted addons (dressing and cos), and 3 unpainted addons for my friend.

The painted sets are very nice. Two tables were really warped but thats not too bad. Very happy w the paint jobs.

The first 2 packs of large floor peices were slightly warped but its not noticeable when placed next to other tiles.

Opened and unbagged the first 5 sets of basic tiles and kickstarter stretch pieces. An amazingamount of wee plastic baggies are trying to escape the tub i used as a garbage recepticle. While the baggies were useful for the small stretch items to prevent their loss, I am not sure they are needed for the larger tiles.

I spent about an hour unbagging and sorting 5 boxes of basic tiles and their stretch items. Its a lot of peices.

I will work on painting this subset this week and see how far I get. I ordered 3 paint kitsand appreciate receiving the 9 freebrushes - they look to be of very high quality. Thanks DF!

Ok - I am done for tonight.

Wow, you're going pretty quick. I only have 5 sets and 6 adds and you're way ahead of me. Good going. Picking out the random stones phase takes me the longest. But once you're done with that it really speeds up. Post some pics, that's got to be a pretty impressive pile of Game Tiles. :)

Spent the afternoon at the house of the person who shared the kickstarter with me. We painted all his stretch goal addons. 5 boxes plus the stairs addon pack.

The paint seems to go much further than estimated. So far i have base grey on 5 base sets, 15 stretch sets and 5 sets of addons with about 1/2 a bottle of the paint. Perhaps i did not need 3 sets of paints. There should be plenty of paint available for the 4 sets our friends bought.

I finished 3 of my own corners yesterday while painting my friends peices.

Here are 2 of them along with the secret passage wall from the factory.

And a photo of the paint work in progress.

The painted corner picture isn't very good - the camera in my ipad2 isnt much. That will improve in 2 weeks when my air arrives.

Picking out the bricks took me a while too, I would be about half-way through painting the light brown bricks in a set and start to get really impatient with it. All told though, I thought the painting went really quick. I painted 5 sets (plus stretch goals) and one of every add-on in about a week (evenings and weekends) and was very happy with how they looked in the end. Biggest regret is not getting unpainted COS, I could use 4-5 of those wells unpainted...

painting the individual bricks seems to be the most time intensive part...so your almost done!

I was stalled before starting the noonhour painting exercise. I had the bas colour on the pieces but could never find the time at home to paint the bricks. The pieces require some focus to complete this stage - not a lot but some - i have done about 100 pieces in the last 10 work days. The 50 corners took the longest time.

Next week is curved corners and diagonals (20 of each). Then we shall work on doors before the 120 walls.

They are easy to paint but require some time. Its a great way to clear your mind from whatever stresses the morning has wrought.

I shall be ready to bring the pieces to gencon. Now I just have to find a game to run while I am there.

From my experience the decision of brick placement for each tile is what took the longest to paint. Therefore I separated all my tiles into 3 groups, decided upon a brick pattern for each group, and speed painted them all. (When I place my tiles on the table they don't look identical with the 3 different patterns)

Also as long as you paint the entire brick and you do a moderate job keeping the excess paint within the lines, the olive dry brush will hide most of your mistakes.

I painted 3 sets + 6 addons, bricks took ~4 hrs.

Good luck
