Need help picking out paints
Posted 25 May 2012 - 02:10 PM
Kuro Cleanbrush bought me a crusaders army as a graduation gift. While it's being shipped to me I wanted to buy all of the paints I need. While I have always used GW paints (only thing sold at my LGS) I really liked the reaper paints I bought and used on Fargus. So I wanted to use purely reaper paints on my army.
While looking for inspiration material for my D&D paladin mini. I came across this picture.
Original artist's devian art page: http://liquidology.d...oncept-96355105\
I fell in love with that scheme immediately and really want to paint up my crusaders like that. So I'm looking for advice on what paints to buy because I can't buy them first hand (obviously).
I believe 09120 Coppery Orange would work for the armor (I'll probably just buy the Collored Metallics One triad). But I could use a good shade and highlight color for it. (and confirmation that it's a good color match to the pic)
I believe the Gold-Toned triad will also fill my gold needs. (again, confimation needed)
I could also use a good red and black triad.
Also I believe I'm going back on the pearl armor for my paladin in lieu of more of an ivory scheme like this. (yes that is the same paladin as in the other thread, just a different "in-game" shot of her)
I wanted a reaper triad with the main color roughly the same color as GW's bleached bone. I believe the Ivory Bone Triad is what I'm looking for. But again, I want confirmation before I buy.
Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer.
And thanks for putting up with this rather inquisitive painter.

For reds I'd pick up Bloodstain, Blood Red, Carnage and Clear Red. Note that in Reaper's case "Clear" does not mean transparent or translucent, but refers to the purity of the pigment or some such thing.
