Special ordered this state side and cant wait for the February delivery of my new paint set. I have been trying to hold off on finishing the Confederate brigade that is currently on the bench, do to the fact that I am out of a few much needed colors that were used during the painting of this batch of minis. Has anyone purchased this set and what do you think of it, I have placed my order with "The War Store". What I would give for some Leather brown at this moment, the wait is killing me. Also have recently purchased a Brigade /Army deal from 1st corps which will be coming very soon and will be splashed with the new paints.
Almost forgot this, just arrived Hoods Texans colors sheet by Battle Flags and the flags were well worth it...great detail.
I would be interested to know how these paints perform as well,although i have over 100 Valejo paints i probably consitantly use under 30 of them.Its just a matter of figuring out colours which suit and sticking to them.If this set was around when i first started i would have given it a go and i may still.So a good comparison review would be very handy
Once you get them running, you can stay on top of them, and that way a small force can defeat a large one every time Stonewall Jackson
I have also never purchased a complete set before do to that fact of owning colors that I would probalbly never use. This sets colors seem to be in my prefered shades unlike most larger paint sets. I will definately post my thoughts on the new paint and some pics. Only time will tell as in performance that is, hope I have not ventured to far on this one.
There can be no doubt that the success of the attack on and stand against the enemy at St. Lambert sur Dives can largely be attributed to this officer’s coolness ... London Gazette, no.36812, 27 November 1944
Well the set should arrive this week or the next and could not be more needed I have used the last of three colors in the past week and have been mixing to get desired colors but still to me this is not the exact colors I am desireing. I have been achieving much needed mixing experience during the last month but to me seems like I have been ending up with way more leftover paint even though the mixing starts out in very small amounts I still end up with a larger amount then usually used. I have recently purchsed a few citadel paint pods from HobbyTown and have been very pleased with the texture of this brand and I can only hope for the best in my new untried paints.
