  1. You're in trouble. Check the Reaper Learn to Paint Kits and see if there's overlap with your current collection. Otherwise, look into the HD paint line. IMO, For beginner, the HD paint line is better, because its "one coat" coverage means you'll get your mini's painted less frustratingly. The MSP triads, however are VERY good for "handholding". Buy a triad and you'll find the right shade of color you weren't sure you were looking for. Also, consider washes, such as Secret Weapon Miniatures and The Army Painter (Quickshade Ink set).

  2. Thank you for all the additional replies! With regards to paint, I was also wondering about lighting. I've been painting next to a hobby light, in very close proximity (it's got a white CFL bulb) and I find that sometimes it's really hard to pick out the highlighting I've just done.

  4. Hello all, I'm new to the forum, but have been following a few threads for painting help and inspiration. I'm currently working on painting my first two models after following a number of tutorials (Hot Lead, Forums etc.), and I'm using the Master Series Core Colors Set #1 (108 paints) which is a fantastic set and has pretty much all I need as a beginner. I've got quite a few minis that I plan to paint, and I can't help but wonder what I'm missing with some of the other MSP sets, particularly this one: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/paint%20set/sku-down/09957 Does this ef
