My husband and I run the Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits. It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc. We get really good turnout. The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations. All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors. It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting. A couple of years ago at Reapercon folks helped fill a box with mouslings for me to give away. I could not do this without the support I get from the painting and gaming community.
So here is this year's class:
(BTW, if you got stuff in your Bones4 core that you do not want, find me at next year's Reapercon, I will see it goes to a good cause)
This is our table about ten minutes after setting up. Busy the entire day.
Some of the fine works of art created by the kids who participated. They look forward to this all year.
Got to pick up more baby dragons next year. I only had the one and it resulted in crying. :(
Good morning guys!
Q: if buying one of the reaper core sets (108 bottle set), what's the main difference in them?
I'm looking into buying a complete paint set. I've been doing a ton of research and have settled on a reaper core set (i already own several reaper paints and love them). I know that everyone suggests a blend of several companies based on which has the best, e.g. yellow, or metallics. I just want to make it simple, buy a set and build from there.
I'll mostly be painting 40k and privateer press models with some terrain and 3d prints mixed in (i have a cheapo set of acrylics from Michael's for large terrain and 3d prints).
I've also considered the Vallejo Model set, and Army Painter Mega Set.
Thanks in advance!
Cuttlefish Colors is a hobby acrylic paint line that we here at the studio have developed. These paints work and blend very well with other major brands of hobby paint on the market right now, but at a much cheaper price tag.
Why use Cuttlefish colors
Beastclaw Raider painted using Cuttlefish Colors For years we used just about every other major brand of hobby paint out there, always looking for that perfect color, the smoothest paint and the most cost effective.
Lets face it, if you’re into tabletop war-gaming you know how expensive this hobby can be. We were so tired of spending 5-6 dollars a bottle on paint, only to have them dry out with their flip top lids, the dropper styles were great but so difficult for us to get locally, and the consistency of the color varied greatly.
Deathguard Marine painted using Cuttlefish Colors So, ten years ago we began doing research on the properties of hobby paint, how it’s made and where we can get the materials to do this. After hundreds of failed attempts to “make” our own paint and thousands of dollars spent on failed formula’s we finally found the one that worked the best.
This formula gives you a smooth thin coat with good coverage and blends fantastically with other colors in the line, AS WELL AS other hobby paints on the market. we began to experiment with different pigments and for the past 2 years have been painting miniatures with the paints we would mix up and bottle for ourselves.
It was about 6 months ago that our friends and local game group started asking about what colors we used and we told them, Well, We make our own. Ever since that day people have been asking us "Can we buy some of your paint?" After thinking about it and seeing if it was possible...well...here we are!
We are very excited to bring our line of hobby paints to everyone, and can't begin to thank you enough for checking us out and hopefully, just hopefully pledging!
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts,
