A little while back, a man came onto the CMON forums saying he was a chemist and wanted to develop a new line of miniature paints. The goal was to make high quality paints at a very reasonable price. Thinking paints like GW's Citadel paints were too expensive, at £2.55 ($3.92) a 12ml pot, he set a goal of selling paint for £1 ($1.54) per 15ml bottle. He then asked for some product testers and I signed up.
I received 10 paints of varying colors and gave them a try. I really enjoyed them, they were thinner than most paints and had a bit of extended drying time. I found them great for glazing. Others have compared them to Scale 75 paints which I have yet to try but have heard great things.
Since testing them out I have been using them in various projects, and they featured heavily in my Koth-Yan piece:
|The colors I used on him were: Yellow Green 3, Green 3, Red 2, Pink 2, Pink 3, Pink 4 and Black 1|
I encourage all to try them out and see how you like them. You can pick yourself up a starter set RIGHT HERE. Each starter set has 5 different shades of one hue, one transparent paint in that hue, white and black, for a total of 8 15ml bottles at the price of $13.41. There are also many different sets of paints, like the Flesh set, or Silver and Gold NMM sets.
Metallic paints and Inks will be available soon as well.
