Probably white primer and grey liner would be my two most used ones, since I don't have grey primer yet.

Finally thought of one:

I find that I use the bone whites and leather browns more often than not.

 

[Scratches head] So the opposite would be bone blacks and leather... bluish? [/Scratches head]

If I discount Black Primer, Brown Liner, and the Other First Layers (because that is not where the question was aiming**) then I don’t know

 

**I think the question is not about the logistics of the painter’s paint rack. Because the obvious answer there would be about what bottles need replacing most often, due to being depleted by expending the most drops of paint. Obviously, that will wind-up being Liners/Primers. 

 

I think the question is about the bright color a miniature ends up when it is finished. So in my case, I don’t know. 

 

I think the last last things I painted were Archers :: they got a lot of greens and browns, but there were bright blues, yellows, reds, because some had “livery”.

 

Before that some ships :: they got a Steampunkish metallic brass effect. 

 

My Warlord Reven Army :: Black Faux Acid Wash that I think consisted of Black Ink, Brown Liner, and Adamantine Black in equal parts.

 

I have made three attempts at Ghost Things at different times :: white and different greens for those. 

 

I did some Malvernians with Red Tunics once. 

 

I hardly ever do a totally Yellow mini. But I rarely do a Purple mini as well...those are each other’s opposites.

A mondegreen is a mishearing of a phrase and substituting similar sounding words so the phrase makes sense. 

 

Thanks, pinkymadigan!

Probably brown, leathery colours. I tend to gravitate towards dark earthy colours (especially for rogues and rangers). 

 

Going to try to make something with brighter colours this weekend. I guess blue-viloet is the opposite of light brown? If I succeed, I'll turn in the quest on Sunday.

Recently I’ve been using a lot of Red Violet, Pale Violet and Burgundy wine but that’s because I’ve been purposely trying not to reach for my greens and purples. Everything works in purple.

I have been using a LOT of blue (lots of Anhurian and Thalos models). 

 

My most recent model that I started is bright orange, you can't miss 'im.  So, success!

You're welcome!

 

The paint I've used on the most minis is 09088 Stormy Grey as an undercoat for metallic parts.  (There are a lot of parts that can be rendered as metals on BattleMechs.)

 

The color I think I've used on the most minis as a color itself is 09056 Templar Blue.  I have a 12 BattleMechs painted primarily in this color (2nd Donegal Guards, Lyran Alliance) and I used it on at least one Bones skeleton.  You can also see it on my WIP for 14352 Unforgiven, Crusader Grunt (which I really need to seal and pronounce done).

Okay, it isn't done yet, but I think you'll get the idea...

Basically, my goal was to move away from dark leathery colours and try something new.

I chose my Wraith mini to be my test subject, painting it a blend of shiny blue and shiny purple (because ghosts ARE shiny):

Sorry about the poor photo quality, but I found that, without flash, the colours were too dark for the camera.

      Welcome to Getting to Know you, September 2018 Edition.
       
      Here are the roolz, copied directly from @Crowley's post from last month
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
       
      The most important thing is to have fun! In fact, its now mandatory

      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

      Here's my list:
       
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.
