Nocturna N-Paint & Fantasy Figures

Recommended Posts

Nocturna is getting on the new paint band wagon. These seem to be a different line than their already existing paints collaborated with Vallejo. Plus some new figures. Wooo.

I'm in at the moment. But not sure ... I have already got enough paints and each of those sets of 8 only has one or two paints I'd be interested in. Furthermore, I don't like GW-style pots (not sure if they are GW-style), but I prefer dropper bottles (and they definitely are not dropper bottles).

Oh my, those look like some interesting colours. 

 

Looks like the same pots as Coat D'Arms, Privateer Press, Foundry, etc. 

 

Edit: such a pity.  Feb fulfillment kills the idea immediately for me.  Why are so many companies coming out with paint lines and then shipping in the middle of (northern hemisphere) winter?

Very pretty. Not sure if I'd be up for paying for the paints and such plus shipping, but they definitely have some gorgeous hues that I don't think I have in my assortments. I like well designed pots of paint, the kind like GW used to use in my youth that never seemed to dry out. I'm down with those over the ones that dry out super fast that I seem to encounter lately.

 

I wish I'd known about this during the Early Bird, that's for sure.

I'm tentatively in and it was this that sold me:

 

"But the greatest quality of N-Paint is not in its physical characteristics, but in what it allows you to do chromatically. The mixes made by Jesús Martín, who created the colors of Vallejo Acrylics Fantasy Pro line, have exceeded expectations, achieving a balanced range of colors that will bring you closer both to Nocturna painting style and the extremes of the most radical painting you can think of."

 

I'm a really big fan of Nocturna's current Vallejo Acrylics Fantasy Pro line, I use paints from those sets very often incorporated in with my other most used paints. They're really unique colours, well coordinated and really nice to work with.

 

This part:

"The N-Paint colors have been manufactured in the UK by the best modeling paint developers in the world, with more than 40 years of experience, authors of the most famous paints you have used during your life."

 

Leads me to believe that these paints have been manufactured by Coat d'Arms, who previously made the original Citadel paints before GW started making their own. I have a bunch of Coat d'Arms paints and am pleased with them, so I'm pleased with that partnership. That would also explain why they went with those particular paint pots rather than dropper bottles.

I am interested in some, but I do have an awful lot of paint, and the cost of shipping for one set is pretty high. Going to have to sit on it a while to debate myself. I've enjoyed my Nocturna/Vallejo Malefic set thus far, so I don't doubt these will be quite nice too. And they make absolutely gorgeous figures.

Just out of curiosity, I thought HMG made Coat D'Arms paints?

When they go to retail, if they sell them the same as their Vallejo branded paint sets, they are unlikely to break them up out of the sets. I obviously can't promise that they won't and I really wish that they would, but it's something to consider and maybe ask them about their future plans in the comments. If they plan on breaking them up, then you'd probably be better off waiting for retail to just pick up the paints that you're interested in. If they're not going to break them up, then you're just weighing whether you'd rather pick them up via KS at a possible discount (I didn't see if they said if they're discounted) or just at retail price.

Yeah, as far as I know it's all the same. I should have said the same people who make Coat d'Arms rather than made by Coat d'Arms.

I'm sad to say that I won't be backing this project. 

 

None of the minis really shouts 'must have' to me, and the paints...  

Pots and winter shipping?  

No.

No. 

There's apparently talk in the comments about possibly earlier shipping on the paints, but... Yeah, I hold the same reservations myself, since they'd be subjected to a week of -20°C, which would pretty much guarantee dead on arrival paint. 

 

If they shipped by middle of September, or were bounced to May next year, I'd be a lot more comfortable backing such. 

 

I'm rather surprised a European company would set for shipping paint at a point when a good portion of Europe is dealing with snow and/or freezing temperatures.

They're in Spain...  

It's not a country you associate with blizzards, cross-country skiing, or even figure-skating...

They don't even have a single long-range dogsled race.

Ah, had a feeling they'd be in one of the warmer countries. 

 

As for Blizzards, are we talking about those delicious ice cream treats that Dairy Queen has?  Because those are goood and I could so go for one right about now. 

 

Still, you'd think using a worldwide platform they'd contemplate the timeframe a little better.  I kind of want to try their paint, but yeaaaah, I'm not going to even think about it if Feb is when they're shipping. 

 

I'm actually surprised last time I looked nobody had mentioned half the world is dealing with winter in February..  Okay, maybe a third of the world, but still.

        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.
