Well the New Year gets me thinking of years past and things to do in the coming year. So I think it is high time that we resurrect the New England Paint Day.

 

For those of you unfamiliar with the New England Paint Day, it is a get together of like minded individuals; to paint, share techniques and to just have a plain old good time.

 

On to the debate. As this is a New England Paint Day, we have to figure out the location. In the past, they have been hosted by individual painters and at game stores. I can set up a time with Pat at my FLGS (Citadel Games Cellar in Groton CT) or I can host at my house depending on the number of people. For those who were at the last CT paint day, the Citadel has moved down the street to a new location and has much better lighting this time around.

 

I am open to other locations if it is more convenient for the majority; someone else would just have to step up and procure a location. Right now I should be good for most weekends up until April.

 

So, who's interested?

I would love to make it, but four hours is quite a haul for me. I don't really do long road trips these days.

Hello, Friend! I'd love to come, but I am carless... if someone lives near ECSU and wants to carpool, I'll pitch in for gas!

I'd like to attend as well. Haven't really checked out the LFGS around the Albany NY area since I got back into painting with the bones KS. Though I like the idea of a New England Paint Day.

I would love to attend, but living in Phoenix makes that rather difficult...

That might be arranged. My daughter goes to ACT in Willamantic so if that's the campus you're at you're only 30 minutes away.

That's why I haven't made it out to any of the NY paint days yet. I do have a comfy couch though. And one of the casinos is like 15 minutes away. Just sayin'.

 

What sort of dates work for people. I was thinking some Saturday in late January or early February.

Oooo! It sounds like lots of fun.

It would be about a 2 hour drive from where I live. I might be able to make it, depending on exactly when you were thinking of doing it.

 

I'd love to suggest possible locations, but I do not have a better idea. I guess if there were way more people driving down from northern New England than from NY / CT, it might pay to move it further north, but you would know far better than I.

 

I know that I am busy on January 11&12, and on February 16, 22 and 23 (business + TotalCon)

Depending on the day, I may be able to attend. A 2 hour drive is barely more than some of my commutes.

      Sounds like an interesting paint mixer. Not sure I'd get it myself, but some people on this forum might be interested...

      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 Paints (!) - 56 new colors, Golarian specific colors, ETA October.
       
      Learn to Paint kit expansions, 6 additional colors each and instructions, 4 expansion sets, ETA June or July.
       
      Pathfinder Learn to Paint kit being worked on.

      Ordered a reasonable amount of paints from an online store that carries Reaper here in Canada....  All of the other paints come across as normal, but this one....  Well, uhm...
       


       
      I'm going to venture a guess it's a goner, or can it be saved?  There isn't even a liquid sound when shaking the bottle, just the sound of the agitator stuck in the bottom moving around somewhat.

      After a poll this seems to be the best place to put this thread. For the most part I'll stick photos under spoilers because my phone likes to make them large.
       
      So I bought a sketchbook today with the intent to catalog and show off all of my paints. I thought it was quite the appropriate book to get.
       
      First I made a grid on a page. Then added the title to each column: Name & SKU, None, Base, Wash, Brown Liner, Blue Liner.
       
       
      That's as far as I've gotten. Next I plan on starting to fill out paint names and SKU's. Then I will prime the squares with some plain white brush on primer (Vallejo in this case). I'm really hoping that the paper is thick enough to avoid the water from just being absorbed. If it isn't I will go to the craft store and buy a better book with different paper and can use this for something else later. 
       
      Each column is a different thickness of paint/what I'll be putting it over. So None is straight out of the bottle, Base is thinned enough for a base coat, Wash is thinned down to a wash consistency, and Brown and Blue Liner will have each of them put over the primer and then a base consistency paint over that. 
       
      I'm going to spend some time filling out the names and SKU's and then I'll get to priming the squares. Might go back and go over the lines with a sharpie or pen to make them a little more apparent where the lines are for my sake. 
       
      ETA: I already have a spreadsheet of all of the paints I own and then sub-sheets broken down by line/company. I think there is a way to put color samples into the sheet but I've yet to figure it out. So I'm making this so I don't have to pull out all of my paints when I need to color scheme something. I can just pull out the book and go from there. It'll be much more efficient for me.

      I have been painting minis for a few years now and my paint collection has evolved quite a bit. I started with a few bottles of Tamiya paints
       



      Then I went into a KS called Paintdecor and got a goodly collection there, plus a few Vallejo paints as they are available retail here in Nagoya Japan, whereas Reaper is not. Got a couple Dwarvenforge paints around the same time also.

       
      Then I started to get more into Reaper, with a lot of buying, including a learn to paint kit and my collection expanded
       
       
      And just today I got a couple nice Vallejo paint racks so it looks a lot more organized
       

      I also have one of almost all the Dwarven Forge paints but not a good pic of them right now. They are off to the left in the third pic.
       
      And in a few weeks, I'll be getting another 35ish reaper paints I bought last year including the holiday bundle. 
       
      I will update with a pic of those when they arrive. 
       
      I know it is not a huge collection, but compared to its beginnings, it is a whole lot better. 
       
      Whatta ya got?
