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.

Thanks, this is pretty handy!  Scorched metal is an interesting looking color, I may pick that up one day.

I use Scorched Metal as a dirty bronze armor on things like orcs.  I'm going to use it on Wyrmgears engine and exhaust pipes.

Typically when I'm doing brass, I'll use P3 Blighted Gold as my base color. It's a cool, green-tinged gold color. Then I'll work my way up to a brass from there.

Nowadays for metallics I mostly use Scale 75, the gold and copper sets are amazing.

 

For rust I use the Valejjo Special Effects Set.

Agree, it's handy.  I also use it as dirty bronze armor!

It's pretty. You need to be even more vigilant than usual about thoroughly shaking it though.

 Scorched Metal highlighted up through Coppery Orange into a bright gold looks really nice.

      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.

      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:

      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.
