Miniatures and Paints!

SHARK:
Greetings!

What brands of gaming miniatures do you love?

Lately, I really like Artisan Guild, Beastarium, Cast & Play, Bite The Bullet, Signum Workshop, and RN Studio.

There are so many awesome miniature companies and lines! Lots of variety, and different classes, races, poses, and gear. I have been doing 32mm in most miniatures, as I think that the details are superior and easier to see! Also, just being a bit larger than the older 28mm miniatures makes it much easier to paint as well.

What paints do you like? I have mostly Reaper paints, as well as some Citadel paints and Vallejo paints.

So many cool options for everything!

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

If you are trying to paint large numbers of models quickly (or even if you want to speed up that one you need for tonight), I cannot recommend The Army Painter's Speedpaints sets enough.  You get all the highlighting, detailing, and dry-brushing in a single wet coat.  It's incredible.  Add a little zenithal undercoat, and it looks really good for less than 10 minutes per model.  It's changed the way I paint....

I'm pretty deep into wargaming on my end.

When it comes to minis where I go depends on what I am after. WW2/Nam? Rubicon is the best.

Generic fantasy reaper or NorthStar's frostgrave kits are great.

the last few years I just print what I want.

As for paints I am partials to Vallejo. I find citadel pots and price too unappealing. I also like Pro Acryl by monument hobbies.

I don't use miniatures with RPGs but I do play historical miniature wargames. I'm pretty much exclusively 15mm either Ancients or WW2. For paints I primarily use Vallejo.

I saw a bunch of videos on them a few months ago but didn't know if they were out yet. I've also heard that GW is reformulating their Contrast paints so I'm not sure whose are better. As I said earlier, however, I mainly do historical so all the bright colors of the Speedpaint line are not very useful. Unless someone has a good formula for OD green or feldgrau.

Do you use an airbrush for the zenithal or drybrush white over black?
