I'm pretty sure the label on my bottle for 09036 says "Pale Olive".

 

I'm guessing they renamed the color at some point and didn't make a new image.  The image for the triad (Olive Greens (09712) claims the color is named "Pale Olive".

Thank you! I didn't think to look up the triad. I know there are a couple of other paints with the same problem but I think I know which names are correct.

 

I set up and have now filled out 20 actual pages, not goblin 20's, of the book! I've still got about 20 actual to go. I am skipping liners, additives, and inks so far. This means I've filled out the names of 180 of the paints available in the store. I'm going to have to set up a few pages for special edition paints and paints from other companies. I've also been primer-ing pages a couple at a time, with a total of 4 finished to that point. Those pages just need the liners and then they will be completely set up. I also realized I can use this as sort of a wish list. If I want paint and Husband wants to surprise me with some he can just flip through the book and find what's not filled in and ta-da! brand new paints that aren't double...triple...quadruples...and in one case quintuple copies of that paint.

26 pages filled out completely and that covers the core MSP paints minus additives, liners, inks, and washes. I'll probably use a different book with different paper for the inks and washes because I don't think they'd work well for the paper that I have currently.

10 pages have been primed and set up. It's time to start putting paint to paper. That'll have to wait until tonight though.

I realized I never posted the specs of the notebook. It is a 7" x 10" sketchbook. I don't know what kind of paper it has but it seems slightly thicker than standard printer paper but not like watercolor paper or anything. For the grid the first column is roughly 1 1/2 inches wide and 1 inch tall. Each of the other columns are about 1 inch wide. The rows are all 1 inch tall giving me 10 rows obviously. The measurements are what I tried to stick to. Some of the squares are a little wonky but that's mostly because I can't hold a ruler straight. 

 

I've now got primer on all 26 pages and labeled the colors by color group (red, blue, green, etc.) I just need to put the brown and blue liners on the remaining 16 pages. Then I will start actually putting paint into the book. I think I've figured out my ratios for how thin I want my paint to be for each step but I might play around with it a little more before starting.

I need to organize my paints by SKU now. Probably only a couple of pages at a time and then back to my random somewhat coherent, to me, organizing system. I think I will be able to put some paint to paper tonight though since I know where, at least, the first 2 pages of paints that I own are currently.

Have not organized paints yet as I've been trying to finish up a few projects. I've also misplaced the brush that I've been using for everything in the book so I'd have consistency. So I either need to find the brush or one similar enough to use. So it's on pause until further notice.

      I started painting up Cthulhu tonight. So far I've just got the base coat on the head and body. I hope to get this done fairly quickly.

      Painted this up a couple of days ago, took maybe 3 hours. This is the only decent photo I got but overall I'm very happy with how it came out.

      I finished! Unfortunately he doesn't fit in my light box quite right so I had to just use my blanket as a back drop. The lighting could be better also. Overall I'm really happy with him. Spoiled for big pictures.

      I finished her. It's finished but not perfect. I could have messed around with things even further and cleaned her up a bit more. I really probably could have left her sitting for weeks trying to figure out what else to do which is when I decided it's done.
       
      Pretty happy with the eyes on this one. Also, the chaps were the first time I'd attempted to do distressed leather which I think look pretty good for a first attempt. Probably could have gotten clearer pictures but didn't want to fight with the phone any longer.
       
      ETA: C&C welcome.

      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?
