OneBoot's Bones 1 Kickstarter Figures WIP (picture heavy) in Works in Progress: Painting Posted September 10, 2013 Due to a bit of serendipity, I found this article talking about P3 metallics. I wasn't even looking for it! Anyways, it mentions that they blend nicely with P3's inks for tinting, so I'll give that a go next, since I just so happen to have a bottle of their Brown Ink. That article is written by a Reaper Forum alumnist Fieldarchy. I still think Vallejo Metalics are better. Are you talking about the special alcohol-based Vallejo metallics, or the regular ones? I've been getting bad results with the regular ones on Bones (fine on metal) but I haven't tried the alcohol-based 'better' ones. And the one FLGS who carried anything other than P3 just closed.
