Squidmar’s paint challenge winner

And the winner is… watch the video to find out!

Overall it was an interesting contest and I am pleasantly surprised the reaper paints did so well. I have been using them since 2015 and I like them a lot, but they are hard to come by here in Australia too. Judging from the comments under the video, they will be doing some similar tests with the Duncan Rhodes paints when those become available.

    I’m a big fan of reaper myself. I think if I had to redo it all over again I’d probably go mostly reaper. As it is I have a lot of vallejo as well….

      I really like the reaper paints, they are surprisingly harder to get in Australia than brands like Scale75 or Turbo Dork

        I wonder if it’s just a lack of demand (from lack of knowledge) so stores aren’t ordering from the distributors….
        I only discovered them when I got my bones kickstarter and I’m always a sucker for expanding my paint collection. I was very impressed with them and have continued to accrue more.
        Maybe ask a FLGS that carries reaper minis?

        It’s probably worthwhile. The reaper distributor here is Aetherworks, and while I have ordered paints from them years ago, more recently I find they are out of stock on 90% of the items. I picked my original Reaper paints up after using them for the first time at a ‘paint and take’ event at PAX2015 where you painted a Bones mini with reaper paints, great fun, and really put me onto the range.

    If you need a special shipment of Reaper paint, I’m in the states and they’re paints are readily available. I’m always willing to help out a fellow hobbyist.

      Thanks for the offer, but with the Duncan Rhodes paints due to arrive next month I am good for now! Although if I don’t find a good replacement for Dark Shadow and Muddy Brown I will be in touch!
