New England Paint Day

2027 posts in this topic

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.

Ooo! It actually is! That would be awesome, if it could be arranged...

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)

I'm out of the country until May, so I'll probably have to sit this one out. Maybe a repeat over the summer?

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

      Hello and welcome to the Repository of Paint Arcana! After all this time being here on the forums, I've come across a lot of excellent tips and innovative methods for using paints, and I've been trying to collect what I can for my own use. I thought that it might be a good idea if we all had a central thread where we can post all the interesting things that we've come across. While the majority of posts would certainly be about Reaper paints, I welcome suggestions about any kind that you have. Know a paint that would be a great base for a certain colour? Post in this thread. Know a mix that makes a really vibrant hue? Put 'er right here, pardner. Got a link that shows steps to make a great effect? That's right, you know where it goes. I know that every one of you has something cool that you've come across, and I would urge to to put it here.

      Right then. I'm looking to switch to Reaper paints from Citadel for various reasons and would like to know if there are any tips or tricks for doing this. I figure this forum is the best place to ask. Plus, I like you people already. Y'all are my kind of people. Well, most of you. Except that one person...
       
      I've gotten a spreadsheet off the intertubes that has a rough guess about colour matches for the two ranges (including a few others, too) so I know which paints are similar. I'm going to continue to use Citadel's metallic and shade range as I'm used to the former and the latter are better than anything else I've seen barring what I can create - that is, unless someone can convince me otherwise.
       
      Here's my biggest problem: I own most of the range from the other company. I think I'm missing two colours out of the bunch. Should I bother switching at this point? Am I too far in to do this? It's not like I'm running out of paint every week - those paint pots last a while in this house - so replacing them as they get used is going to take a long time. That's fine, I guess. I just want the shiny new stuff now.
       
      Other than replacement, is there anything else I need to know to ease the process? Blocks of 54 paints at a time seems reasonable enough but, then again, this is coming from the guy that buys all the models for one solo campaign just to switch to another setting. That level of "reasonable" is what you're working with on this query.
       
      If this isn't in the right place for this post, please move it / delete it / kill it with fire. I'm still figuring the in's and out's of this particular forum. (I did notice there was no reception table in the lobby, though.)

      So for a while now I've been incorporating the dark elf skin triads into my washings and shading quite a lot depending on the colors, but they are becoming kind of common for me.  Does anybody else use them for the same purpose?
       
      Just curious....

      So I've gotten into OSL and I wanted to find some MUCH brighter paints and I've always wanted them. So what do you guys prefer? Any recommendation? My search has only included those from Reaper:

      So, I'm currently working on painting up Wyrmgear.  I'm going for a brass, bronze, gold color; I've got several different MSP metallic paints so I decided to test them out to see which ones looked good or I could use for some TMM shading/highlighting.
       
      So I ran some lines of each color on a piece of paper.  knarthax was on the hangouts and he said that other people might want to know the results so I snapped a quick pic with my phone.  Here are the results.
       

       
      The cross at the top is Clockwork Brass (horizontal line) over Drillbit Metal.  Both colors are very close to each other which is surprising as they look very different wet on the palette.
       
      I hope this helps someone.  If needed, I can take a picture with a better camera and better lighting sometime later.
