help with replacement paints


Recommended Posts

Toddler decided they wanted to paint without me and did a whole bunch of palette filling. Unfortunately that paint couldn't go back on the bottles.

I know some paints are oop, so I'll be looking at the list in this forum. But there's some paints I really liked. I'm limited by what's in stock locally, which means one location that carries non GW paints.

I'm periodocally going to post aboit stuff that I no longer have enough to paint to try and get suggestions for replacemrnts that people have liked. This is really brutal for me budget wise so... ugh

Maybe I'll have a few hours to go through things later today.

Do you have an andriod/i device?

 

Assuming you don't already know about it, the paintRack app (from Courageous Octopus) is pretty handy at trying to find equivalents.  The full version is pretty cheap, too: only about the cost of a bottle of paint.

I think I lucked out. Most other stuff seems to be dirty but not emptied. Though some bottles are now unreadable.

 

Well looks like I can get replacements for the secret weapon stuff. And the Vallejo is easy to get.

Will just need replacements for the Reaper stuff.

When I get home after work, I will check my back up inventory; I may have a few of these OOP colors that i'd be willing to let go of. Lots of the colors in your list are still in production and can be found on the site though.

My issue is affordability and frequency. Today again, in the space of 2 minutes , my toddler just dumped out ALL my acrylic inks. So the ones i just received in replacement that I got on sale, plus the 12 or so that I previously had collected on clearance prices. So that's 100$ I need to replace. I'm very much close to quitting. I have no time to paint. No time to organize my paints so my kid can't do this. Never been able to game with my minis. Have no hope of being able to do anything with this pile. It is completely gutting.

If you start a GoFundMe, let me know by PM.  

 

You have enough friends here that a series of small donations could help replenish that paint collection.
