    And much money for scale75. I can´t understand, why I only use 10 - 15 different oil colors to mix everything and didn`t buy for every new figure a own new color set

    Haven't these guys heard about colour theory or did they only study marketing? So glad I'm an oil painter, with some tubes over 40 years old!

    Slightly bewildered,

    It's color mixing that I like with oilpaints.
    Some years from now and the acrylic guys are changing to oils :)

    You could be right....returned to oils for skin and just ordered some Abt.502 basic colors (red,white,green,blue etc.).

    Remember my father once telling that he whitewashed his helmet in the winter of 1941 by applying Blendax-toothpaste. Who knows what could have been done if he and his comrades had had a German helmets paint set back then??:D

    Scary thing is newbies will buy this product creating a market for further sets.

    Is this for early war or late war helmets?

    Scale75 clearly missed an opportunity here!

    With all these paints appearing I'm getting confused. We had oils and enamels, then we had vast ranges of acrylics in every conceivable shade from several manufacturers, then we have a specific sets for specific things such as backs of ears, transmissions on Tiger tanks etc. etc. At the same time this manufacturer is running an extremely well organised Kickstarter campaign for acrylics in tubes... for newbies it must be a nightmare to decide what to use. This really is great marketing but I note that there is no simple book on colour theory but I suppose it would mean fewer sales as people would mix... I recently bought a cheap book about the palettes of the great impressionists and they used very very few colours, though more than Fogie does.

    Cheers

    Bewildering the novice customer must be a key marketing tactic in these days of instant gratification. In all aspects of life we are smothered by a vast choice without quality. It reminds me of one of Britain's naval quotes: 'To glory we steer and confusion to our enemies!' And confusion there is! Most veteran oil painters in the figure world used to teach us to reduce the amount of tubes in our painting box and to steer away from the fancy named colors even the best colour men tend to slip in their range. For me learning to mix is part of the fun, as is still learning after 50 years in the hobby. But that makes me an old man of course, who couldn't use an acrylic even to safe his life. For those who want to get a firm grasp of colour mixing and the theory behind it, there is a lovely and quite refreshing book "Blue and yellow don't make green" by Michael Wilcox, well worth a try.
    cheers,

    yours bewildered,
