  1. well, i dont know exact colors... but i got a 3 shades of green (all 3 are varying shades of OD green basically)


    the oldest one i got at christmas, i use it fairly regularly, though lately i havent had as much time to paint as id like, so i could go sometimes a week or two without doing anything.


    the 2 newer ones of that green set are fine, as are the 2 beige-ish colors i got...


    you guys seriously need to label those samples, so i can tell you names instead of "beige-ish"

  2. yup, thats what i was thinking of..lol



    as for paint drying up... the local game store in town actually carries some reaper pro stuff, however its all dried out, because of a few reasons


    1.) its the same paint they've had in there since i can remember

    2.) its sitting under a heat vent

    3.) everyone buys GW stuff.. since its more popular in town


    that being said, i also dont order reaper stuff from that store, it tends to take longer for them to get it, they dont order directly from reaper, so they cant get any discontinued stuff (apparantly), and they dont give me any samples like reaper does..


    having said that too, some of my pro sample stuff has started to get a bit clumpy, i just shake really hard.

  3. well, for candy apple red one could in theory use GW's Blood Red


    however im in the process of checking out some of my wifes old nail polish colors... some of them are real bright shades of red and blue


    im sure im going to have to thin them to make them workable at all... but it is worth a shot..



    though as a side note, i wouldnt really call the master series a "new line" of paints, they've been out for a little while now


    dealing simply with reaper pro paints, Dragon red is probably as close as you'll get... just add in a touch or two of a metal color.

  4. i saw the mini when they showed off the new necropolis and dark spawn stuff (i scrolled back)


    i wanted it then, and i still do..lol...


    your greens look a bit washed out (probably due to lighting or the camera.... or both)


    still looks nice though

  5. a silver tone could easily be accomplished by just using grey colors..


    if you put actually metallics in it, its going to look like the person has real metal hair


    you may not want that


    so, start with your lowest color (maybe something like a dark grey) then work up higher, until the final layer is white..


    use small brushes!..lol

  6. i pour very carefully...lol


    i still get some on the lip though...


    they do make small funnels, gunsmiths have been using em to make bullets for years... a teflon funnel would work too...



    course, i dont transfer very often... just when im mixxing up some new color.

  7. I like prophet118's color scheme with the red . Nice work on the cape too ::D:

    thanks... i just wanted something a bit more down to earth than the bold blues (and other bold colors ive seen on them)



    i did end up doing some touch ups to the mini after i did those pictures, but nothing really major, just clearing up some minor errors in the paint job

  8. yeh, 8 bit theatre is pretty funny, especially the red wizards.. hes such a power gamer

    Black Mage is my favorite.

    hehe yeh... hes funny too.. i havent read it in a long time, but "Fighter Hadoken" still pops up every so often as does "chuck chucks, sword chucks" and a few others
