I have some Reaper-produced HD paints that came with white caps.
I would like to obtain some black caps, in order to avoid the psychic pain of having paints that aren't configured properly. But the only caps that I could find in the Reaper store were white caps.
Is there any hope for me? By which I mean, is there any hope that I could obtain black caps (for Reaper dropper bottles) from the webstore?
1) Will these 12 new paints (73400-73411) be available for normal retail sale at some point?
2) They claim to be HD paints, but they have white caps. What's up with that?
3) Is there any chance of being able to purchase black caps for Reaper paint bottles? I could find only white caps in the store.
I haven't seen this posted anywhere else on the boards and did not find anything by searching, but RealmSmith has posted an interview from GAMA on YouTube with Ron and Ed. If this has already been posted, please feel free to nuke this post with extreme prejudice. As YouTube is a commercial site, no link but searching RealmSmith and Reaper will get you there.
Here are my notes:

Pathfinder Learn to Paint kit being worked on.
By Geoff Davis
I have been helping out at a monthly "learn to paint miniatures" class at a local games cafe. It has mostly been brand new painters who have never painted a miniature before. We are using the Reaper Learn to Paint starter kits as well as the miniatures that were provided by Reaper. We recently ran out of miniatures, so the cafe order a bunch of new ones. I convinced them that we should get enough of one miniature such that everyone in the class can paint the same one at the same time. That way people can follow along with an instructor who will show what they are doing on a screen. We are getting a lot of repeat attendees now, so some of the participants are ready to do more than just slap a single thick coat of paint on the figure. So far, they have been hard to convince to try any shading or highlighting. Even washes and drybrushing are meeting resistance. So, I am looking for advice.
The figure we are going to do this month is 77396: Olivia, Female Cleric by Werner Klocke. I am going to paint one plain purple and show them Derek Schubert's monochrome class sample so they get a good sense of what highlighting/shading will do for their miniature. Olivia Purple Monochrome
What I am looking for is suggestions on a colour scheme that looks appealing, will be relatively simple to paint and where the effects of highlighting and shading can clearly be seen. I am not good at picking out colour schemes, and I have already scoured the internet looking for ideas. So, your ideas, please! Any suggestions you have on colour or on conducting the class will be welcomed.
So, a looooooong time ago, I painted this as a gift to my then-girlfriend (now wife), known to a few around here as Nissiana:
Then the 54mm "Master Series" came out. Nissiana picked up the Monique DeNoir figure and painted a stellar monochrome version as a gift for me. Around the same time (shortly after the model was released, so early 2008), I picked up the 54mm counterpart of the above figure, Maria Roseblade. I intended at the time to paint her as a gift to Nissiana...and I started painting her. Got a few basecoats, even. Then, other projects for games, contests, etc. cropped up and Maria was sidelined. It's been a running joke ever since, as Nissiana knows about the intended gift.
So, before mid-March 2018, I want to finish this up.
Here's where we are:
I want to follow the oxblood leather/blue top ideas of the original figure, but the light blue piping is getting replaced with ivory lace. I'm also happy with where I left a lot of the skin, so I don't need to repaint much. But there's plenty left to do!
The white patch on her thigh is greystuff, required for some gap filling.
Here we go!
