  1. Thanks everyone...looks like Reaper's Royal Purple is close to Permanent Violet Dark after buying some and doing a color swatch. However, they have other violets that may be closer still (Violet Shadow?) I don't yet have which translates to: basically I'll just have to buy all their violets and compile a in-depth study comparison at a future date and post my findings...lol
  2. I'll have to try that color sometime. Thanks for the heads up. Thanks! Somewhat related, I'd luv to see Anne do a video or series on different paint mixes...a sort of..."mixing this amount of ? with this amount of ? gives you this".
  3. Thanks! These may be trial balloons for Reaper to see the market for such colors. I hope they sell enough of these colors that they continue to carry them. It's a great idea to have these "traditional" colors that are from other companies like Golden or Liquitex for example.
  4. I'm slowly rounding out my Reaper Paints collection and I noticed the Clears are: Yellow (Primary color)Red (Primary color)Blue (Primary color) Green (Secondary color)Purple(Secondary color)...where is Orange?(Secondary color) Magenta (Tertiary color) Clears seem to account for all the Primary and Secondary colors on the Color Wheel...except...Orange. Why??? I understand Magenta can be considered the real Primary color and not Red, which can explain why there are no other Tertiary colors available. But no Clear Orange just seems wrong in light of what is available for clear.
  5. Thanks for the help. I am actually looking for comparisons to "traditional" colors from companies like Golden or Liquitex as examples. Permanent Violet Dark is one of them.
  6. It appears that Reapers Clear Purple is equivalent to Dioxazine Purple . I am looking for a Reaper equivalent of Permanent Violet Dark. Is there one? While I am here...are there any color swatches that have been done comparing Reapers colors to other manufacturers colors side-by-side? This would really be something to have access to. I would make one and post it, but I don't have all of Reapers paints...yet. ;) I also have to add...I absolutely luv their paint bottles, functionally and ergonomically. The best in the industry Imho.
  7. So...I was wondering if BONES BLACK can be used in molds that were made for BONES before BLACK was introduced. There are a lot of minis I'd like to buy, but just won't because of the weak structural integrity and poor quality of the BONES. BONES BLACK has changed all of that. The structural integrity is there and the quality. For example, the BONES Jabberwok is a awesome sculpt and I have one, but had to do some pinning, ect so it would stand properly and not sag and fall over after the plastic bends. If that were cast in BONES BLACK, it would be fantastic! I hope they can
  8. They should transition as many of their minis away from the cheap quality Bones and instead into the better quality Bones Black as soon as possible. I would be buying more of their Bones minis, but the quality is inexcusable. Nobody wants minis that bend like they inherently do and cleaning Bones mold lines should not be like this...it all goes back to poor quality. For example, I would like to buy more Jabberwok in Bones, but the quality is pathetic. I have one, and had to pin it just so it would be posed and stand without "Bonesing" over from the the cheap plastic and not stand properly.
  9. Is there any official source information from REAPER about their paint lines? Master Series Paints Master Series Paints Bones Master Series Paints Pathfinder Colors What are the differences compared to one another...specifically? Such as viscosity, especially. Are Pathfinder Paints the same as Master Series and/or Bones Paints? I ask because I luv their Master Series paints thin viscosity and would like to know how the viscosity of their other paint lines compare.
  10. Recently tried this out...paint thinned using 75% Liquitex Airbrush Medium/25% Liquitex Slo-Dri Fluid Retarder mix in three test groups. The Bones mini was washed/cleaned and then primered using Stynylrez Black with a dry brushing of Stynylrez White. The lightest (upraised arm) is around 90% thinned. The middle (arm down) is around 50% thinned. The darkest (torso) is not thinned and straight out of the bottle. I originally bought this thinking it was more of a "Dark Shadow" and would be a black/gray, it's not. It's really like a Sepia. It's not the color I originally thou
  11. I recently received my order for some paint and they threw in Surkar, Orc Shaman of the REAPER Bones Black line. (Thanks!) ...although the actual casting material is not black at all, more of a grey/green. THIS is what I expected the Bones white material to be like in every way. I have to say I have been very disappointed in the material quality of the white Bones over the years. Way to flimsy and way too many mold lines which are made worse by the way too soft material as they are ridiculously difficult to trim/file away and weapons, ect are usually always warped and bent. There is
  12. I am curious why the new line of paints made especially for Bones minis. I am assuming they act as primers also and have good adhesion to the Bones minis?...if so, has me wondering... Do their white, grey and black primers have the same good adhesion qualities/charateristics as this new line? If so, why make a new line of paints if your already existing primers have the same qualities/characteristics...just use those primers, then paint those Bones. Aside from possibly loosing some detail from the primering, what is the difference? Has anyone any feedback on their primers? I use
  13. I'll pick some of these up next week to try. Thanks for the heads up. The ones with a hooked end look especially useful.
  14. After reading the comments, I tried water instead of the 70% IPA. I didn't try water first, because I assumed it wouldn't do any good at all. Was I ever wrong. I'm not sure if one works better or not, if anything it seems maybe the water does, even if it's the same as the IPA, I'd rather be using water because there are no safety concerns like with the IPA. Also, in the IPA MSDS it states that it can "attack" some plastics...which may have a adverse affect on the BONES over time. Sorry for the false alarm, but at least something was learned. :) ...use W A T E R "We k
