There is a picture of the game at Gamefest website- see report of the Origins Convention. Photo shows full board and some pieces - Looks very bluish tinted. Note the label stuck on the box lid - 'shipping in September' David Carlile
Try and compare the Gamefest photo and the one on Tilsit for the French board. Unless it is a trick of the light when photographs originally taken, but the French looks far darker than the Gamefest (american presumably) one- land areas on the french are almost brown.
Admittedly the blue pieces on the Gamefest would make the overall complexion (too) blue but I wonder if the Tilsit sample board would be more suitable, making it easier to differentiate pieces and land areas?
Does anyone know if there will be tonal differences between country productions? DC.

That's not a bad idea painting the pieces.... I have done some small amount of modelling, and I can see myself being creative... but 215 pieces (maybe minus the fellowship/nazgul) is a lot of hand painting.
Maybe I'll just hand paint the leaders and what-not, and then block paint the others in other colors...
I do agree that the board at origins is... lighter and more blue in appearance than the French version we saw earlier... That one appears, darker... cooler...
But like the master himself said, everything so far are pre-release versions, and with everything being standardized, I have faith it will all come out like gold!
