  1. Check out Michael rinaldi facebook or his website rinaldi studio press. He shows how to handle using oils in painting. The books, tank art, are excellent and his facebook has lots of q&a posts that detail most of his processes and provide in depth explorations and troubleshooting for the techniques he uses.

    New Hobby Area advice/suggestions

    Looks awesome. Even though moving the 8' is a pain in the bottom hole I bet you will appreciate it until you have to move it again.
  3. Ah this answer was expected. BTW I would call this a non answer. If you have something to add to address my question thats appreciated if you have an off topic or answer to a question I didn’t ask then it doesn’t need to be added. However, I’ll indulge you. The store near me doesn’t have them and I want to keep buying things there so it doesn’t close.
  4. Old oil has metallic in it? I’m curious to know what it would look like, I had one of the metallic washes back in the day and I couldn’t really figure out how to use it to be honest.
  5. Any or all equivalencies are greatly appreciated. Of interest are the engine glosses, the oil, engine grease, and old oil those would be interesting. Secret weapons swatches are a little useless unfortunately. The heat colors seem interesting but if they are just paint colors called heat then I’m not sure I’m interested. The description for the paints is uniform. The rust and metallics (obvi).
  6. Reaper was the first brand of paint I ever bought, gave it away and now I have rekindled my love for the brand. The only game store close has a massive rack o reaper paints. My question is, if I wanted to get colors that are close or exact matches for the Secret Weapon Miniatures colors, which ones would they be? Is there a chart somewhere?
  7. In economics, a false economy is an action that saves money at the beginning but which, over a longer period of time, results in more money being spent or wasted than being saved. For example, it may be false economy if a city government decided to purchase the least expensive automobiles for use by city workers, as cheap automobiles have a record of needing more frequent repairs in the long term and the additional repair costs would eradicate any initial savings. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_economy

    Scarlet and Sable tutorial videos

    The next youtube https://youtu.be/3WYjsIJLQTE is up. This about using oil paints for weathering. Thanks.
  11. Hey guys I put up a rust texture tutorial video on youtube. I'd appreciate if you have a little time to watch it and comment here or there about what you liked and what you didn't like and about what kind of content you would like to see. Thanks.
  12. I bought an evolution AL plus. Most of the euros rave about these airbrushes. many amazing miniatures have been painted with them. I find the pattern it sprays to be a little wide for my taste. I dislike the trigger feel. I prefer iwata, badger and then my H&S in that order.

    Minitaire Brand Airbrush Paint

    I advise using some Createx W500 reducer. The minitaire work well with that reducer. I had very very bad tip dry when I used them and finally when I tried using the W500 they transformed from poor to very serviceable.
  14. I've used vallejo chipping medium its terrible. Its inconsistent and I have always had a different experience using it. I would try it out on different test pieces first until I could figure out how to make it work consistently. However if you have some money or are lucky and you already have it in your house is tres emme ultra fine mist. I heard about this product in the scale modelling community. It works consistently there is a learning curve but I find that tres emme behaves the same way every time, vallejo seems to act differently each time i've used it. I've used vallejo about 3-4 times and I couldn't get it to work right.

    [SPLIT] Vortex Shakers

    These are all great anecdotes but why don't we start with how many people have died or gotten sick from buying a used vortex mixer. Friends, friends of friends and acquaintances are accepted. Maybe even something you read on a forum.
