MSP Review

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine got a lavender purple sample bottle in a Reaper order, and passed it on to me to try out. I can't say I was wholly impressed. I still found it a bit thick and still thinned it with a brushfull of water. It wasn't very matte either; slightly duller than Citadel's but still satiny. There was no label on the bottle so I don't know what color it was.

Lars, you more than likely got a "First Generation" bottle of paint. That was the Amethyst Purple... and yes, they've worked on it. I painted with it at the RAC and gave feedback on that color - it was one used on the Lady of Darkness I did... it wasn't working just right then. I'm sure Anne & Co. have fixed it... ::D:

Thanks Jester. Whatever happens I'm going to give the Asian flesh set a shot (I custom mixed my own for 4 Bushi last night and remembered why I hate custom mixing asian flesh tones)...

I think Reaper rocks as a company and I wanted to love these paints, but so far my experience hasn't been so great. I ordered 5 or 6 colors from the reaper store and they came in this week. They do seem to be rather shiny, especially the Earth Brown- not a color that's usually glossy. The coverage hasn't been as good as I was expecting, but they do go on smooth. I guess they'll take some getting used to like anything else but so far I'm not giving up my Vallejo's just yet.
