203 - Picking Up the Paint

Hello all and thanks for dropping in. In a previous post I talked about how my paints were a little less painty. Thank you for the responses on how to try and save them. Some have been saved, others have not. That of course means that I need to go shopping.

Well I've been, and this is what I bought:

26 lovely little pots of fresh paint. The majority are your standard Citadel ones with a few large pots of wash lurking at the back. I won't list all of them, but there is a nice spectrum of colours to work with. I've also decided to dip my toe further into the Vallejo range and grabbed some Model Color White Primer (002) and Metal Color Gold (77.725). The Gold came highly recommended by the guys at Bristol Independent Gaming where I purchased these from.

If anyone is from the Bristol or surrounding area, pop by and give them a visit. They've got a nice shop stocking a decent selection of current tabletop game minis. But they've also got a very nice set up of tables in the back, which unfortunately I didn't snap any pics of. Check them out on Facebook though!

So I've bought the new paints, so really I should do some painting.....or not. Instead I grabbed the hobby saw and knife and set about destroying a couple of Chimera's (Chimerae?) to convert them in to set back versions like this one and this one.

Progress will of course be at my usual slow rate, but here's hoping for some more updates soon, maybe on the same project!

Thanks again for stopping by!
