Is this product meant to be used over a base coat of paint?  I picked up 3 colors yesterday, a red, a yellow, and a green.  So far, on primed Bones I'm not getting good adhesion.  I'm using it straight out of the bottle and it's going on like thinned paint and beading up like crazy.  Am I doing it wrong?

Yeah, they are basically designed to go over a white or off-white base coat that is either gloss or satin.

Ah.  If I have to paint them first then the product isn't really saving me any time.  I was hoping they'd work right on primer.

I got to try some of these paints at a paint-and-take on Free RPG Day last month.  I really liked the Dark Angels Red and Iyanden Yellow, but didn’t like the darker colors like Dark Angels Green and Ultramarines Blue.

 

Has anyone tried some of the lighter contrast paints over a silver metallic base coat?  I’d like to see what the results are.

I'll be trying that exact thing on some CAV cockpits once I get a chance.

Huh, I missed the word "primed" in "primed bones".

 

With the right primer, it should work.

What seems to matter is the smoothness of the primer or base coat. 

Worst case, you just airbrush on some varnist or somethng else shiny first.

 

I got 2 of the 3 paints I ordered, today...

Guilliman flesh is sold out and they don't get stock in until at least the 14th.  

Everyone is sold out on most of the paints 

Even GW themselves are sold out. The only ones having any real stock seems to the scalpers.

This is exactly why I'm not even trying to check them out until the buzz wears off.  Heck, I'm still figuring out how to paint things with traditional paints!

With that attitude we'd almost belive you're sane or something...  

 

I want the flesh colour because that's something that's causing me all kinds of grief.

I played with them a little more last night. They work fine as washes over paint.  From what I've seen/read there are dark dark ones and paler pastel ones, so you'll get different effects from the two.  Someone else said it first, but they remind me a LOT of "magic wash" made with a certain floor polish in the old days.

I bought the flesh triads and they seem to work well.  I really like the Tanned Skin triad.   I kind of wish the shadow was a little darker for the fair skin triad though.  I haven't tried the dark skin triad yet.

 

I recently picked up Reikland Fleshshade from Citadel (obviously) that I want to try out too.  Flesh and Eye vex me the most out of everything so far.

      Wanted to continue working on my Underworld stuff, but didn't fancy the last two minis I had left in the previous thread, so thought I'd roll them into a new one.
       

       
      This time we've got 10 randomly chosen minis, the two dudes from the last thread and the whole Sea Elf team (They felt too fragile to pack away after I built them).
       

       
      Here we have Cyrille and Celine (A pair of Elven Peacekeepers) and Snoz a Goblin Scout with his wolf Fang.
       

       
      This set consists of Zellotl (Lizardman Warrior), Freshly Awake (a newly risen Skeleton), Frilna (a companion beast to the Fey Elves), Sorcha (battle-hardened Mercenary) and Ailithir (Evil Knight).
       

       
      Yrkill and Jafari (from the previous thread) plus their companions Sigmundur and Sethos (because someone or something is determined to have me paint these particular teams). Sethos isn't an Underworlds figure but is a matching Cultist from the OOP Warhammer Quest:- Silver Tower game on an old resin base I found.
       

       
      And this is the Sea Elf team.
      We've got Gaelin (he's a Fish), Tanjaya (the Warrior at the back), Indra (a Summoner), Surya (a Harpooner with no eyes) and Orym (he's a Crab).
       
      Making a start on Sorcha:-
       

       
      Painted the furry collar on her cape.
      It's a base of Cold Grey with a Black Wash and the drybrushes of Cold Grey, Ghost Grey and Off-white (Only on the upper shoulder bits).
       
      Not sure if I should paint her head next or the armour that's close to it, either way I think I'll make a mess.

      Presenting the Swamp Orc Standard Bearer, he's part of one of the newer factions in Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar range.
       
      Really happy with this one and I had a lot of fun painting all his chunky detailing!

      Any Spaceport bar, where hard-bitten adventurers gather, will have a regular willing to regale strangers with tales of Lady Vulnavia's exploits, and most of the tales contain a reason behind her always veiled face. Is she secretly an exiled alien princess, or was she badly scarred duelling the King of the Space Pirates? Only the Lady knows and she's not telling.
       
      Presenting Lady Vulnavia, woman of mystery and leader of the Starstriders. She was part of the (now OOP, I think) Killteam:- Rogue Trader boxset from Games Workshop.
       
      Not one of my best paintjobs, but I'm still pretty happy with how she turned out.

      As I mentioned in the thread on the Captain with Terminator Honours, here is the best painted Dreadnaught I have done, the trident symbol on the  front is the chapter insignia. Let me know what you think!

      I thought it would be cool to show off an older model I painted, this one is a vintage Space Marine Captain, painted in the colours of my own Chapter, the Sons of Poseidon.
       
      Comments and criticisms always wanted, let me know what you think! The model was painted using Army painter paints.
