Has there been any advanced contrast videos where people have got better effects using medium and that. All the videos i have seen from contrast paints were very lackluster. They remind me almost of dying an easter egg.


Best Contrast video I've seen is from GMG where he paints a complete nurgle model start to finish using the contrast paints as-intended as well as using them for some glaze glaze techniques and also using non-contrast paints with some traditional layering techniques for highlights. Whole model from primed to complete in about 50 minutes at a fairly high tabletop standard

Dispatch date of my remaining paints from Element Games has slipped by another week again so I have reluctantly asked for a refund of the outstanding amount.

Guess I'll be going to Firestorm Games who seem to have all the paints in stock...


I love Element, but I've had a LOT of issues with slipping dispatch dates over the last year.

To be fair, this is the only issue I have *ever* had with them in many years of buying from them. They are normally solidly reliable and prompt. I think this time they just got swamped with pre-orders for the new paints (pretty much like every other retailer I guess) and rather than turn orders down, they kept taking the pre-orders and hoping GW would produce enough to fulfill the backlog - clearly this isn't happening or at least, not happening nearly quickly enough or in enough volumes; I mean, I've been waiting well over a month and a half now for the remaining portion of my order.

I stopped using Element Games about a year a go I think as the prices were slowly increasing above the competition and had problems getting items in. I normally use Goblin Gaming atm but I just ordered a black and medium that I've been missing (and using that as an excuse to not get painting!) from Firestorm and they have loads apparently!

Definately one of the better contrast paint videos i have seen. I like the blocking of colors under it. I think combining this with some Zenithal basecoat for larger heavy contrast areas would really start to be more useful. Thanks for the share, not sure how I missed this one.

So far I haven't been using these on whole models.

Just areas of models where it makes the most sense/saves the most time.

Possessed Wings for example I've thrown the pink on
As well as using contrast on a few other areas

Then reverting back to traditional for the rest

- Absolutely great also for small metallic areas you want to do with a gold or silver underlay

Or even saving time on things you don't see much of like saddles. As your dude is sat on it.

Definitely a winner and sped up my painting.

Naturally, just before Contrast was announced I started picking up colored brush-on primers then washing them with Army Painter Inks, for my tabletop miniatures.

Results are good and I don't have to learn anything new. While I eventually picked up several colors, I didn't feel a need to do it all at once, and the only unusual color I had was brown. At least until I need to reach free shipping.

My old metallic acrylics are terrible, so thanks for the recommendation, Gerinako!

Metallic Red! ;-)

Gold Underlay, Drybrush Silver, Flesh Tearer Red on top

Since that photo I've done further edge highlighting by going on the edges with a thin brush and Runefang Steel and adding a dabble of Blood angel red over the top of it
