So, I'm currently working on painting up Wyrmgear.  I'm going for a brass, bronze, gold color; I've got several different MSP metallic paints so I decided to test them out to see which ones looked good or I could use for some TMM shading/highlighting.

 

So I ran some lines of each color on a piece of paper.  knarthax was on the hangouts and he said that other people might want to know the results so I snapped a quick pic with my phone.  Here are the results.

The cross at the top is Clockwork Brass (horizontal line) over Drillbit Metal.  Both colors are very close to each other which is surprising as they look very different wet on the palette.

 

I hope this helps someone.  If needed, I can take a picture with a better camera and better lighting sometime later.

Thanks, this is pretty handy!  Scorched metal is an interesting looking color, I may pick that up one day.

I use Scorched Metal as a dirty bronze armor on things like orcs.  I'm going to use it on Wyrmgears engine and exhaust pipes.

Typically when I'm doing brass, I'll use P3 Blighted Gold as my base color. It's a cool, green-tinged gold color. Then I'll work my way up to a brass from there.

Nowadays for metallics I mostly use Scale 75, the gold and copper sets are amazing.

 

For rust I use the Valejjo Special Effects Set.

Agree, it's handy.  I also use it as dirty bronze armor!

It's pretty. You need to be even more vigilant than usual about thoroughly shaking it though.

 Scorched Metal highlighted up through Coppery Orange into a bright gold looks really nice.

      I'm a fan of the Scale 75 paints, they have a new range called artist colors.
      The paint comes in tubes.
       
      I wonder if anyone has tried these?
      You're thoughts on these?

      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!

      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.
