Well the New Year gets me thinking of years past and things to do in the coming year. So I think it is high time that we resurrect the New England Paint Day.

 

For those of you unfamiliar with the New England Paint Day, it is a get together of like minded individuals; to paint, share techniques and to just have a plain old good time.

 

On to the debate. As this is a New England Paint Day, we have to figure out the location. In the past, they have been hosted by individual painters and at game stores. I can set up a time with Pat at my FLGS (Citadel Games Cellar in Groton CT) or I can host at my house depending on the number of people. For those who were at the last CT paint day, the Citadel has moved down the street to a new location and has much better lighting this time around.

 

I am open to other locations if it is more convenient for the majority; someone else would just have to step up and procure a location. Right now I should be good for most weekends up until April.

 

So, who's interested?

I would love to make it, but four hours is quite a haul for me. I don't really do long road trips these days.

Hello, Friend! I'd love to come, but I am carless... if someone lives near ECSU and wants to carpool, I'll pitch in for gas!

I'd like to attend as well. Haven't really checked out the LFGS around the Albany NY area since I got back into painting with the bones KS. Though I like the idea of a New England Paint Day.

I would love to attend, but living in Phoenix makes that rather difficult...

That might be arranged. My daughter goes to ACT in Willamantic so if that's the campus you're at you're only 30 minutes away.

That's why I haven't made it out to any of the NY paint days yet. I do have a comfy couch though. And one of the casinos is like 15 minutes away. Just sayin'.

 

What sort of dates work for people. I was thinking some Saturday in late January or early February.

Oooo! It sounds like lots of fun.

It would be about a 2 hour drive from where I live. I might be able to make it, depending on exactly when you were thinking of doing it.

 

I'd love to suggest possible locations, but I do not have a better idea. I guess if there were way more people driving down from northern New England than from NY / CT, it might pay to move it further north, but you would know far better than I.

 

I know that I am busy on January 11&12, and on February 16, 22 and 23 (business + TotalCon)

      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!

      A noobish question, should I thin down reaper washes? Or are they ready to use out of the dropper? 
      Sorry if this has been asked.

      About
      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,
      Cephalopod Studios

      I hear horror stories about people getting frozen bottles of paint. Is there any way to tell if the paint has been frozen prior to using it? I was concerned about this when I did my holiday paint order, but it was a little unseasonably warm the day they were delivered. What does frozen paint look like & is there a way to salvage it if it has been frozen?

      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.
