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.
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.
Bit of an opinion piece here, but what are the Reaper MSP colors you find that you can't live without? What colors do you think should be in everyone's collection?

While shopping at Reaper's booth during ReaperCon, my friend and I noticed that a tiny fraction of the HD paints had a white label. Ladystorm mentioned that they were transitioning from a yellow label to a white label and that the caps may also will be switching to grey. The reason was that the yellow ink on the label was just a few microns too thick for the label machine causing unnecessary jams. So just wanted to give people a heads up that they will soon start seeing new labels on the HD paints.
