New Paints

I picked up some new paints the other day:

The P3 colors are for the Protectorate of Menoth battlegroup I got at Adepticon - I love the color scheme, but since white tones are notoriously difficult, I decided to get the paints that are purpose-made for those models.  The Bleached Bone is because I'm using a ton of it on my Freebootas, and the Dark Flesh is because I went to use it the other day and mine was all dried up - I've noticed this seems to be a common occurance with Citadel paints in the red family.  Anyone else have this problem?


  1. Who doesn't have that problem with GW paints. Their pots are garbage, I only buy them now if I have already started painting an army with a certain colour (eg. bleached bone/regal blue for my Novamarines)

  2. GW paint pot quality comes and goes. I still have some that are over 15 years old and still good. (Shows how often I use some colours)

    You can top them up with a medium like slow-dry or fluid retarder to make them last longer.. or just water.

  3. Oddly enough I don't have a problem with most of the GW paints regardless of the pot style - just with the reds in general (and Blood Red in particular) and Skull White...
