After wanting to learn how to paint minis for a long time, I was finally encouraged by some friends to take the leap. I found the Reaper 'Learn to Paint' kits and have found them an incredible resource for a new painter. While I know my work on these minis isn't perfect, I'm really happy with how they came out for the first models I've ever painted. Working through these has given me a lot of confidence, and I like it a lot more than I thought I would!
I will say that I struggled more with the layering technique in the second kit than I did with the wash/dry brush technique from the first kit. I'm happy with the progress I've made, though.
Now that I've finished all of the minis that came in the kits, my next project is to paint the minis in my Fury of Dracula game.
I'm really happy to finally be exploring this side of the gaming hobby!
So the stars have aligned and Mudgullet has been released just in time for my group's Tomb of Annihilation playthrough. I'm planning on going for a simple, suitably froghemoth-y color scheme but have realized that my palette is lacking in the greens department. Oh, no!
So, time to remedy this. What should I grab from the MSP and Bones paint lines to give me a good selection of greens, while limiting the number of colors I need to buy (maybe 3-5 bottles this purchase)? What are some of the colors you folk tend to reach for, with an eye towards versatility? The Power Palette is only as good as the swatches it pulls from, and it's been my experience that Reapers paint swatches are very hit or miss, unfortunately.
OK, I don't want to put the cart before the horse, but are Reaper examining the potential for colorshift paints? With those big bugs coming in Bones IV, now (or very soon) might be a good time for some sparkly shiftiness.
If this can't be answered, that's OK--nuke away. But I'd be curious to know the ifs and whys (if available).
I just suddenly felt like I needed them.
I have some Reaper-produced HD paints that came with white caps.
I would like to obtain some black caps, in order to avoid the psychic pain of having paints that aren't configured properly. But the only caps that I could find in the Reaper store were white caps.
Is there any hope for me? By which I mean, is there any hope that I could obtain black caps (for Reaper dropper bottles) from the webstore?
