I would love to see a resurrection of the Learn to paint line, but with the far more affordable "Reaper Bones"
An example of one of the Learn to paint Sets!
I'd love to start with Bones it's far cheaper then metal mini's. I currently had a friend donate the money for the core set. Yet still moving on.
From what I am aware this line is out of print. I feel it needs a revival with the Bones line. The old ones are still a steal with the things they came with. ( 2 minis, 10 PAINTS, 2 brushes, and a guide; Also since these are old the paint might be bad no idea about paint self life.) So I feel it would be a great marketing decision to reboot this line with bones since it would be cheaper to produce by a bit then metal.
What are your thoughts?
I plan on buying a few of the older sets if I can
Mantric gives more mini's but not as many paints and only one brush.
"Mantric" a separate miniature model company has some great sets, but sadly they don't come with as much paint or the extra brush. They do give you extra mini's.
Though I'm using them as a EXAMPLE of a currently running line of "How to paint" sets.
What do you think reaper should do. I like the Classic Boxed HTP sets as well Though those are far more expensive.
Thanks Everyone. Let's hope we can find a new way for people to get into this hobby. :)
Moving on after The Harlequin Incident ™, and following in Last Knight's fine footsteps, this WIP is from the Learn To Paint Kit 2 - Basic Skin and Cloth. I'd finished the monk (Tsuko?) and tried Laurana here, but was very, very unhappy with how she'd turned out. So, I stripped her and decided to give her another go.
Hopefully there are a few more people out there working on this kit willing to post some WIP pics/stories as well!
To start off, we have the primed mini. Already deviating from the kit, she's been primed with Krylon white spray primer, as I've gotten pretty grainy results using the Reaper Brush-On Primer that came with the kit. I'm positive it's me, not anything wrong with the primer.
