Another little review, I should be working, but it’s hot and I don’t really have any serious time pressures ATM!
The warpaints range has (I think) 150 paints, of which I own just over 100. So this should have some indication of what I think of them.
I started my painting way back and had some of the original round flip top citadel paints. I spent so long using that range, I could mentally paint and deconstruct in citadel colours 😁
Since then I have used:
Rackham, P3, New citadel, Vallejo model color & air, Foundry and artist inks.
My best results have come from New citadel, but considering the obnoxious, in my opinion, prices I can not justify the costs to buy and use them.
I initially started using warpaints a few years ago, using the old mega paint set to paint up my Star Wars Imperial Assault models…
They are screenshots from my Instagram, I’ll try to get better pics later!
As you can see, it’s really not bad paint at all once you get the hang of the handling properties.
I sometimes use a wet pallete but most often I just go with what ever is nearby like a plastic lid or tile.
For best results, shake the damn thing like your life depends on it. Shaking these pots is one of the few ways my pulse exceeds 100bpm!!! Using a suitable agitator really helps with this too 👍
I always thin the paint down. I never used to, mainly I hated the idea of painting more than one coat of a colour. But once I made that transition, well the results speak for themselves:
Hmmmm lots of blue… 🤔🤦
I won’t give you any bs about milk consistency, that has never rang true for me. Just practice and see how different mixes work for you and the colour being painted.
I really like the warpaints range, and I am slowly working my way to a complete collection.
I find the price point from 3rd party retailers to be just right, and I only have issues with one or two colours. Worst for me is the colour Orc Blood, that never seems to mix properly in the bottle, despite the agitator in there.
Theres my entire collection of warpaints.
Not really a review, just bored musings for now 😉
