  1. Go to your local automotive store and get the Duplicolor Flat Sandable Primer. Way better than GW and at half the price.
  2. Cool. It shounds like what I generally use my liners for anyway.
  3. Noted the following on Alliance Games today: Sounds interesting. Anyone willing to share any more details
  4. Not to mention that not all miniatures will remain in production.
  5. I'm wanting to recreate the paint scheme seen on this Sci Fi Aircraft and haven't quite decided which technique to use to replicate the striped pattern. I'm considering either drybrushing or stippling. Any suggestions as to which technique would be better for achieving the desired results? Thanks.
  6. Yes. I prefer not to mix my mid tones so I can keep it consistent across my models and since this is for an Imperial Guard army, that's going to be a LOT of models I'm definitely not looking for 'exotic' nor do I want to go warmer. The majority of my palette will be the Grey Blues and Stone Colors Triads with the Redstone Triad for the models bases so I'm keeping the colors very cool and very muted. Perhaps this will help. Basically what I'm looking to do is duplicate the paint scheme used on the second model on the left, top row. So the options right now for my shade are... 1) 2:1 Blue liner to Grey Liner. IMHO, this will help keep the shade from getting too 'blue' or too 'grey'. 2) Either straight Blue Liner or Grey Liner. 3) Midnight Blue darkened with Pure Black. I'm just concerned that the Pure Black will be too strong and overpower the already dark Midnight Blue.
  7. How would you recommend shading Midnight Blue? Right now I'm considering a 2:1 mix of Blue Liner to Grey Liner as a base coat, but I'm open to any other suggestions. Thanks.
  8. Use the Olive Skintone Triad?
  9. So how does Ruddy Leather from the Burnt Colors triad sound?
  10. Maybe use a bit of Pearl White as the highlight instead of Silver?
  11. I'm painting some Sci-Fi Troopers using Shadowed Stone as the base for the fatigues and Ultramarine Blue for the armor with black weapons. My question is which color would look better for the boots and pouches? I can't decide between a Walnut Brown base or simple Black? Or would you recommend some other color instead? Thanks.
  12. I like Testor's Contour Putty. It comes in a grey tube like their model glue comes in and when it comes into contact with super glue it sets up rock hard.
  13. Don't the various liners already have this covered?
  14. Not if you're using the Natural Steel triad.
  15. Or to be more specific... http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?...st&p=446274
  16. I just picked up my first can of Duplicolor. I've primed one plastic Imperial Guardsman so far and it looks good. If it paints as good as it looks I've found a new primer for life. I got mine from Advance Auto for $4.44 (versus $10 for a similar size can from GW).
  17. Here's a good article on painting wood grains: http://www.brushthralls.com/painting-techn...-grain-101.html
  18. I hope cincinord's paints have thawed by now since he started this thread in January 2005! BTW, Nord's Games in Cincinnati is where I get all of my RMS paints
  19. Sorry for the late reply, but it is that time of year Hmm. I would have never of thought of using the Moss Green triads, then again all of my exposure to WW II German uniforms has been from Hollywood. Definitely late war. My main army will be the British Armoured Squadron from the Villers Bocage book (I love the look of the Cromwell tanks), but everyone ends up with at least one German army, don't they? Definitely something with a lot of tanks and assault guns (can you tell I'm a treadhead?) While a possible choice, wouldn't that be lacking the greenish tinge that Dunkelgelb is described as having? Another color choice I would not have thought of. Sorry, just trying to be helpful. No problem, I just don't want to let perfectly good paints sit if I can use them and spend my money on the models instead.
  20. Columbus is just over 100 miles from Cincinnati, so my statement stands. I don't want to buy a new line of paints if I already have perfectly good paints on hand. If I wanted to get Vallejo Model Color paints I wouldn't have started this thread in the first place, thank you. Now can we get back on topic and answer the questions that I've asked.
  21. Thanks Anne. Do the other colors sound like I'm on the right track then? As long as their relatively close I'm okay with that, just let me know if I totally whiffed on a particular color.
  22. Likewise, I don't have those paints but I do have the Reaper colors. That's why I want to use those paints. Because I already have them.
  23. Yes, because no one within 100 miles of Cincinnati carries Vallejo Model Colors and I already have a large selection of the Reaper Master Series.
  24. I've recently started Flames OF War and would like to be somewhat historically acuurate with my choice of colors. Using this PAINT GUIDE I'm trying to decide on the appropriate equivalencies for the British and German colors listed. BRITISH TANKS - Recommended color is Russian Uniform (VMC 924). I've pretty much decided to use Military Green as the color here. UNIFORM - Recommended color is English Uniform (VMC 921). This is a hard one to try and match. My personal thought would be to use Troll Shadow. Any opinions? BELTS & WEBBING - Recommended color is German Camo Beige (VMC 821). I'm leaning towards Woodstain Brown as an equivalent. GERMAN TANKS - Recommended color is Dark Yellow (VMC 978). Looking at this article I think Green Ochre would be the best color equivalent for Dunkelgelb. TANK CAMOUFLAGE - Recommended colors are German Camouflage (VMC 826) and German Camouflage Dark Green (VMC 979). I'm leaning towards either Mahogany Brown or Dark Skin and Swamp Green. HELMETS - Recommended colors are German Camouflage Green (VMC 833) and Black Grey (VMC 862). I'm considering Field Green and Grey Liner. INFANTRY UNIFORMS - Recommended colors is German Field Grey (VMC 830). Another difficult decision. I'm thinking maybe Shadowed Stone with a drop of Grey Liner added. Any opinions on my choice of colors would be greatly appreciated.
  25. You could also try the Ocean Blues Triad (#9726). The color equivalency chart has Marine Teal as the closest equivalent to GW's Hawk Turquoise.
