Probably white primer and grey liner would be my two most used ones, since I don't have grey primer yet.

Finally thought of one:

I find that I use the bone whites and leather browns more often than not.

 

[Scratches head] So the opposite would be bone blacks and leather... bluish? [/Scratches head]

If I discount Black Primer, Brown Liner, and the Other First Layers (because that is not where the question was aiming**) then I don’t know

 

**I think the question is not about the logistics of the painter’s paint rack. Because the obvious answer there would be about what bottles need replacing most often, due to being depleted by expending the most drops of paint. Obviously, that will wind-up being Liners/Primers. 

 

I think the question is about the bright color a miniature ends up when it is finished. So in my case, I don’t know. 

 

I think the last last things I painted were Archers :: they got a lot of greens and browns, but there were bright blues, yellows, reds, because some had “livery”.

 

Before that some ships :: they got a Steampunkish metallic brass effect. 

 

My Warlord Reven Army :: Black Faux Acid Wash that I think consisted of Black Ink, Brown Liner, and Adamantine Black in equal parts.

 

I have made three attempts at Ghost Things at different times :: white and different greens for those. 

 

I did some Malvernians with Red Tunics once. 

 

I hardly ever do a totally Yellow mini. But I rarely do a Purple mini as well...those are each other’s opposites.

A mondegreen is a mishearing of a phrase and substituting similar sounding words so the phrase makes sense. 

 

Thanks, pinkymadigan!

Probably brown, leathery colours. I tend to gravitate towards dark earthy colours (especially for rogues and rangers). 

 

Going to try to make something with brighter colours this weekend. I guess blue-viloet is the opposite of light brown? If I succeed, I'll turn in the quest on Sunday.

Recently I’ve been using a lot of Red Violet, Pale Violet and Burgundy wine but that’s because I’ve been purposely trying not to reach for my greens and purples. Everything works in purple.

I have been using a LOT of blue (lots of Anhurian and Thalos models). 

 

My most recent model that I started is bright orange, you can't miss 'im.  So, success!

You're welcome!

 

The paint I've used on the most minis is 09088 Stormy Grey as an undercoat for metallic parts.  (There are a lot of parts that can be rendered as metals on BattleMechs.)

 

The color I think I've used on the most minis as a color itself is 09056 Templar Blue.  I have a 12 BattleMechs painted primarily in this color (2nd Donegal Guards, Lyran Alliance) and I used it on at least one Bones skeleton.  You can also see it on my WIP for 14352 Unforgiven, Crusader Grunt (which I really need to seal and pronounce done).

Okay, it isn't done yet, but I think you'll get the idea...

Basically, my goal was to move away from dark leathery colours and try something new.

I chose my Wraith mini to be my test subject, painting it a blend of shiny blue and shiny purple (because ghosts ARE shiny):

20180603_195808.thumb.jpg.70198f27e4f56ebee973644c2908514c.jpg20180603_195849.thumb.jpg.e569af62a73cdc1587ca02adb4b461d0.jpg

Sorry about the poor photo quality, but I found that, without flash, the colours were too dark for the camera.

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.
