    The vast array of acrylics is staggering with some modellers having the full spectrum :rolleyes:
    I only use them for base coating and even at that have forty shades :eek: or is it fifty , if I include the oils well it becomes ridicules

    The sheer number of acrylic paints and paint sets available now is insane. It's the same for aircraft and AFV modellers as well, with everyone and his dog launching new ranges and sets what seems like every month.

    It's great to have choice. But on the other hand, surely there comes a point at which the choice becomes too much and you end up completely bamboozled by all the various options, so finish up just sticking to tried & tested formulas that you know work. Like Ron, I only use acrylics for basecoating but still probably have far more than I actually need.

    Call me an old cynic but this looks like a repackaging job to me. There are only so many shades of red, blue, etc but endless ways to rebrand them.

    I have bought a few sets of Scale 75 paints but, in my experience, they do take quite a lot of shaking and stirring to get to a useable state - even with bead shakers in the bottles - and I wouldn't say the coverage is good.

    My best recent investment was in the Jo Sonja range. The tube paints cover fantastically and are relatively inexpensive. They also do sets of muted browns, beiges, bluey greys and greens (their Vintage range) which are the most useful colours for non-fantasy subjects. (I believe firmly, if you buy ready-mixed paints, then you cant have too many shades of brown for leather straps etc :))

    Ron, certainly your idea will be a money makier machine.

    Hello folks,
    i've got my scale 75 fantasy "creatures from Hell" paints set.
    the colors are great, consistency it's the same as the scale color.
    they seem a little more vibrant colors and they dry matt but not as crazy matt as the scale color.
