Well Reaper and Scale 75 are my favorites right now.

 

Can't say which one I love more, although for metallics I prefer scale 75.

Dang, the gold and copper metallic sets as well as wood, fleshtones and inktensity are sold out. 

Michtoy has 20% off and they appear to have everything in stock.

maybe. What is more likely based on nearly every order I've placed with MICHTOY ever is that they can get it by Friday. They just don't tell you which Friday.

 

I'm not slamming MICHTOY in particular, since every online retailer doesn't really have an accurate in stock status. For a lot of the Spanish products in stock actually means can order the item. If you don't believe me call MICHTOY and ask if everything is there. If it is I'll be surprised.

 

To that end they do make good on orders but can take weeks. To save on shipping they wait till everything arrives to ship. My record is 5 weeks after I ordered I think. Usually I think it's 2-3 weeks. This can probably be avoided if you specify you want everything on hand to ship immediately and agree to pay shipping twice. The order was for some enamels once and another time it was for some Tamiya paints. If you do order and your item happens to actually not be "in stock" (clutch my pearls!) Follow up. One of my orders lingered on a shelf in limbo before I called to determine its whereabouts.

Understood. The last time I ordered from them, it took a little over a week to ship. That's not a problem. The thing is, most of the items I want are not available on the scalecolor site. So I can get the sale price now on backorder from Michtoy. Or I get no sale price when Scalecolor gets theirs back in stock. I picked up five sets from Michtoy and I'll be happy if they're here by the week before Christmas, when I have time off again.

I apologize for the Gold and Copper sets. I bought some of the last ones during ReaperCon (both from Scalegames and Hangar 51) :bday::devil:

I'm more jealous that you got to go to Reapercon, than that you bought the last paints I wanted.  :grr:  Anyway, I have 5 sets on order with Michtoy. I'll be fine soon enough, and my Reapercon swag bag is already here.

Looks like they have a new book Steampunk in Miniature. The sample pages appear to have demo pics, basing and color/painting advice. The book is written in English, 184 pages with 450 pictures.

 

No commercial links, so... Go to the main Scale75 page, not Scalecolor. It's about the only thing on the Media tab.

i got the ad in my email but I haven't bought it yet.  On the wishlist for early next year unless I hear a bunch of bad reviews.

if you read the forum rules the actual verbage is that you aren't allowed to sell things for personal gain, look for a job or conduct commerce. Commerce by definition is the exchange of social views or attitudes. So really posting to this forum in anyway by anyone is forbidden. So I say elf it. Take your chances.

Almost ordered it but shipping made it impossible right now. I will wait for a US based store to carry it.
