Reaper User Popular Post Vaitalla Posted February 12, 2019 Reaper User Popular Post Share Posted February 12, 2019 Okay I was summoned via bat-signal to set the record straight on this, so here I am. I guess a bat signal works, I am pretty squeaky, but I'm definitely not nocturnal so maybe we need a new signal... but I digress. Reaper Bones grew out of our CEO Ed's desire to have a Bones-branded paint line. Because good coverage was a priority with painting Bones (for the initial coat at least) we went with the base formulation and high-density pigments of the old HD line (recently canceled) for better coverage. There is new tech in the Bones paint line, specifically in the metallics range which use a new type of flake that's shinier than our original flake but still non-toxic. There are also several colors I'd been wanting to put into production for quite a long time, but they weren't a good fit for triads. Bones was perfect for those interesting "one-off" colors. (Some of the hidden gems in the Bones line include the dark skin tones (Ebony and Ruddy) which mimic natural African skin tones better than anything we've previously produced. The yellows also rock, and Sunrise Orange is possibly the best orange I've made. Just sayin'...) Otherwise, the thing that makes the Bones line different is just that it's the culmination of everything I've learned over the years about making good miniatures paint. It's completely useable on everything that Core MSP is, mixes with it just fine, can be airbrushed with just like Core, etc. It's also the line I am proudest of making because I think it turned out really well! Otherwise, differences are usage-based. Bones is not in triads, and does not contain specialty colors like Liners, Clears, Additives, Primers, and Sealers. They are all unique formulations; even the white and black are different from the Core white and black. Okay, any other questions? Other than "is there actual blood in the blood colors triad". I'm not answering that one. --Anne 12 11 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
