  1. HD set 1 for $35 online plus bottles of black and white was an easy recommend for someone starting out and interested in Reaper paint. Master Series Paints Core Colors Basics #1 for $185 is not. There is really no MPS set comparable to the hd sets. Master Series Paints: Starter Set for $30 is ok, but not as good as the HD set in price or contents (and also discontinued in it's current form due to it's HD paint). The new Bones paint sets selling at $17.60 for 6 paint make no sense for starter sets (I'm assuming they are meant to compliment the LTP kits) and also don't compare well to the prices you could find the HD sets at. Really, without the HD sets, Reaper doesn't have a starting place for paints that I'd recommend for people. I've recommended the HD sets numerous times.
  2. The HD sets were probably the best way to get a very solid color range of Reaper paints at a good price for people who don't care about triads.

    Trends with Kickstarter Exclusives

    Over on BGG. I don't know that there was a big official announcement, just that depending on when you emailed and asked the answer changed.

    Trends with Kickstarter Exclusives

    When were you told the upgrade pack wasn't being released retail? The new printing is supposed to be in stores next month. The original did also go retail, just in numbers way under the demand. There are still occasional reports of people finding a copy in smaller games shops that never listed them online.
  5. I see no reason why it wouldn't work fine, but if you are going to prime with an airbrush you can do it a lot cheaper and likely with as good or better results just using an airbrush primer like Stynylrez.
  6. If it was a bad batch I'm sure they've noticed by now and ditched anything they still had from it. If it was due to freezing it's a pretty safe time of year to get it shipped no matter how careless the shipping company is. If some how they send out another bad one and they have to replace it again you'll end up with a sales order covered in highlighter and exclamation points telling the warehouse people to check the bottle before shipping it.
  7. I'd probably start by using soapy water on all the connection point to verify there isn't a leak somewhere. A third possibility if it isn't a leak would be the regulator controlling the on and off. If it's a Paasche though, and you've had it for less than a year, you should just call them and ask. It should still be under warranty.
  8. You mean you always leave it on or just leave it on when you're using it? If you are always leaving it on and never draining the tank it's going to eventually rust out inside. Your current problem sounds like the compressor isn't keeping up with the pressure demand. Does it take longer to build up to full pressure from empty than it used to? My guess would be a gasket in the compressor or the motor itself is wearing out.

    Bones and Vallejo primer +spray primer

    Wanting to spray prime over brushed on primer pretty much only suggests zenithal priming.
  10. Unfortunately even in it doesn't freeze on your doorstep there is still the loading dock and the back of the truck. It's pretty hit and miss what might happen to the package before it's dropped off with you.
  11. The other thing you can do to test it is pill the nozzle off and mix it with a toothpick. If there is a rubbery lump at the bottom it was frozen, if it mixes fine with the toothpick you didn't shake it enough, and it it's still too thin and watery all the way to the bottom it was mixed wrong at the factory.
  12. You don't actually need a clear coat between the acrylic and the wash. Not using one just makes the effect slightly muddier, similar to using an acrylic wash over matte acrylic paint. Enamel solvent won't react with the acrylic so you can even clean it up to an extent that you wouldn't be able to with an acrylic wash. Though generally enamels aren't what I think of when people talk about oil paints as they behave quite a bit differently than artist oil paint (and are usually referred to as enamel paints rather than oils paints despite being oil based), particularly in their cure time. Oil based enamel paints generally being fully cured within 3 days or so while artist's oil paints take considerably longer.

    Overturn Rising Sands

    I think that's an IP thing. If they don't take everything down they'd still be infringing.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    I don't think I'm backing this one, but as a rule CMON's play through videos are horrible. Blood Rage is supposed to be great, but even now I can't bring myself to try it due to the bad impression the kickstarter play through left.
  15. That's definitely not true. Try wearing a white n95 dust mask for a while and you'll probably see it's not all that white anymore by the time it needs replacing if you are using colored paints. An alternative for skipping the mask is holding your breath while spraying, then taking a couple steps back before you breath. Outside that should work well enough.
