Advice on Paint
Posted 06 November 2011 - 01:13 PM
I have decided to get some reaper paints, having just got back into painting after approx 25 years and having used up all I had lying around. However I dont really have the budget to buy all of them so I was wondering what would be a good starting set as there seem to be quite a bewildering array of shades? I am painting D&D fantasy figures, characters and monsters since our old rp group got back together for some old style D&D after all these years and I wanted to use something other than ancient ral partha figures painted when I was 10 :P
Thanks in advance.

Trying to choose starter paints
Essential Starter Colors? MSP/MHD
To some degree, it depends on your goals. I haven't used them, but the MSP HD line has improved coverage compared to the MSP line. So if that's important you, you'll want to lean toward the HD paints.
If you want to paint from the bottle, the MSPs make this more challenging. The dropper bottles are designed to be used from a palette. Reaper used to have a line called Pro Paints which were in pots, but the line was discontinued earlier this year.
If you have more questions, just ask.
