    Finished the lone Chaos Warrior I was farting around with. For whatever reason I decided to try my hand at rust. I'm not rightly sure why, I have no armies that could make use of that effect.

    EDIT: christ it looks like shit up close with harsh lighting.

    So, I have $122.50 in BTP credit. I don't want/need them to paint anything for me, but they can get just about any line in the hobby except Forgeworld.

    I really need to expand my line of paints. I have a bunch of the pre-145 Citadel paints -- most of the washes, the foundations I love, and a handful of metallics and layer paints that I used on my Chaos army. Now that I'm playing Empire, I need more. I picked up some P3 (Beaten Purple) and Vallejo (Glorious Gold) to test them out. I loved the Vallejo, but wasn't wild about the P3, although someone mentioned that might just be due to purples sucking.

    So who's got experience with paint sets? I don't want to pick out 50+ colors myself, but it looks like P3 only does sets based on Warmahordes armies, and Vallejo's got little 16-color bricks or the $250 megaset. Any suggestions?

    Reaper's got triads, which work pretty well for the most part and cuts it to picking out ~16 colors. Or their first ~50 colors set is usually around $130 with normal discounts.

    why are you smelling it?

    I'm beginning to wonder whether I like the reaper paints I got or not. At the same time, the p3's I have have awesome coverage and stuff.

    Edit: I could be doing everything wrong though.

    Every time I buy a new set of Reaper paints I swear I'm never buying another brand again. And every time I see them dry on a model it's difficult to hide my erection.

    Except for metallics. Reaper metallics aren't bad I just prefer others.

    And regarding coverage - certain colors are just shitty for coverage across the board period. Unless you get yourself a high pigment version.

    I'm always buying new paint - even colors I already own in different brands - to find that perfect version of each color.

    Ugh. BTP says they have a hard time ordering Vallejo, but can do everything else. Reaper sounds bad for layering, which is my jam, more so than wet blends or glazes.

    P3? Or just blow my credit on more models so I have a big gray empire army instead of a modest painted one.

    Reaper is not bad for layering. That's silly. Being good at one thing doesn't mean it's bad at the other thing.

    - The triad system takes out all the guesswork and leaves you with really natural-looking subtle gradations.
    - You can use it right out of the bottle thanks to it having flow improver in it.
    - The pigment doesn't separate from the binder when you thin it with water which means...
    - No chalkiness or tidemarks if you choose to do some 'juicing' like I do.
    - It dries super matte and looks amazing.

    I too think the DW Terminator is nice. Honestly that's the kind of highlighting I get when I highlight black, but for some reason I always feel like the lines are to...obvious. Even to the point of feeling comical. I think that's the shade of gray I use though, after seeing yours Altman. What gray are you using (Also useful to get the color pallet for the army in line)?

    If I'm being really critical though: I do feel like he's a little bland for a DW veteran. More bits and widgets might have been nice. That's probably related to how ornate I'm making my models these days in terms of "field gear" though.

  • Dr_KeenbeanDr_Keenbean Registered User regular
    Deathwatch have the whole left arm steel which is traditionally achieved by a really thin blue wash. /nitpick

    Also highlighting black is like the hardest thing to do. I do not look forward to painting my Deathwatch marine for the project. I think it's going to involve mixing some black with the darkest grey with tiny zenithal highlights of pure codex grey. But even then I'm worried.

    So, one of the gripes about Reaper paints is that their coverage isn't great. The flow improver is one of the things that makes it great for wet blending/glazing, but if all I want to do is slowly layer up small flat surfaces and such, I could see that not being ideal.

    Also, has anyone had the fabled Reaper cracking issue? Supposedly they don't play nicely on top of other paints. Some say it happens more often than not, others say that's a huge exaggeration. So I dunno.

    It looks pretty good, but it has this sort of ghostly effect and I wouldn't want to use it for more than the one thunderwolf.

    If you do it with anything bigger I'd like to see it.

    Never seen it.

    That's not true. I have seen it on my palette which leads me to believe it happens when you glob too much on.

    If you're worried about coverage buy the HD stuff but you're doing yourself a disservice by not dabbling a bit in all of the big 4 paint brands.
