[Thanks -- did some more work, but the pictures didn't turn out well.

Anyway, I'd like to see some brush-on colored primers. I know you're going for the display-level audience, but, for tabletop, I find colored primers make painting faster.

I often use brown. Black is for metal undercoats, but I see Vallejo makes a metal primer. Other colors I would like use are green (orc skin), flesh (human), red, blue, and yellow.

And here's a picture of a skaven firethrower (?) team, base coated with Dust Brown and Cool Grey before washing. :



Oh we have no particular audience, we love all the miniatures we see painted with our products

We are looking at brush on primers, though coloured ones are a little way off at the moment, at the moment we're still working on our one-coat system!

Hello there I just placed a order with you guys for the first time for iv-02 aka chardinate granite as mine gave up the ghost a while ago and finding a replacement is a pain in the ass. I just wanted to know if you are still offering the free 5ml water+ sample as it looks rather interesting. As a first time customer if you are offering it will it up the shipping cost? I live in canada and as awesome as your products look the exchange rate and shipping costs just nuke me everytime.

Thank you and i can't wait to see how the paints work out.

Hi there,

Well....sort of.....

The original idea had to be shelved as one of the supplier of the raw material folded on us which meant the whole project took a set back. However we haven't given up on it though it might be turning in a new direction so watch this space (That is providing the idea actually work....)

Thank you!

There will be samples of this heading out with orders soon much the same way Water+ has, the only difference is it will be a random colour.

We're aiming for full release end of May - mid June (Due to the move, the launch date had to be pushed back a bit)

We saw, thank you very much!

Yes it will come with a free sample of Water+ but given that our shipping cost is based on weight, a small 5ml sample won't push it over, and even if it did, we won't charge you the extra for it.

We're nice like that

Awesome, thank you very much I can't wait to try it out. If it's as good as I think it will be, I'll be asking The Boss ( aka she who must be obeyed, aka the wifey) if I can make a few more orders. I really hope you guys are working on a North American distributor. I miss the old foundation line when I worked at GW those where the hot new paints so I used them a lot teaching screaming kids how to WAGGGGHHHHHH and how to slap on some thick blue paint for their Ultrablingers

We've released new colours this week!

Two new wash shades



You can see these shades in effect on this model



Heavy flesh was used on the skin tones (Funnily enough!) over the top of our Sunburnt flesh to give a smoother transistion blend, the Purple was used to enhance the leather look on the shield

Next up we have two new colours to add to the paint line, Mucus Green should come with a free set of nuclear goggles!



And three new editions to the Vintage line and a welcome return to some much missed colours, Graveyard Earth (IV-36), Scorched Brown (IV-37) and Bleached Bone (IV-38)
