Vallejo Game Color Advanced Acrylic Paint Set - Assorted Colours (Pack of 16)
About this deal
The coloured washes on the other hand are very bright compared to their counterparts from Games Workshop or The Army Painter. Especially Yellow Wash, which is almost unusable because the yellow pigment they chose is so light that you can hardly see the wash even over white primer. Red, blue and purple are ok, but the red and blue washes are also very bright, so they are only suitable for shading really light colours, which limits their usefulness. Game Color Inks review
The new Game Colors should already be available from our partner shops Wayland Games, Element Games, Firestorm Games, and Taschengelddieb, which all have them at an additional discount.A set of highly pigmented acrylic colours developed for painting fantasy or science fiction miniatures, the Vallejo Game Color Set provides paints that adhere to plastics and metals perfectly, brushing on easily and smoothly and drying to an opaque, matt finish that is waterproof once dry. The Game Inks also stayed pretty much the same, which is good news for those that liked the old Game Color Inks. However, they removed Brown and Smokey Ink, which of all things were the only ones I was still using, and added a new Magenta Ink, Dark Turquoise Ink, and White Ink instead.
Last but not least, we have a few additives, like a metallic medium which is basically white metallic particles you can mix into other paints to give them a metallic sheen. There is also an airbrush thinner and glaze medium, as well as four varnishes from glossy to ultra matt. Game color is a special selection of fine waterbased acrylic colours maunfactured with a special resin and permanent pigments for miniatures figures in fantasy and war games. Acrylics colors in a matt and opaque, water based formula, especially designed for brush-on use. Each color has been meticulously developed in collaboration with model-painters who specialize in fantasy figures and dioramas. The formulation of these colors has been developed signed taking into account that some of these figures are used in tabletop games, so that Game Color is manufactured with a revolutionary new resin which offers extraordinary resistance to the damage caused by frequent handling. It is recommended to apply Game Color on a previously primed surface. The colors dry rapidly and form a homogenous and self-leveling film while preserving even the smallest detail of a miniature. Game Color presents an extra ordinary adherence on all grounds, such as resin, plastic, steel and white metal. Painting tools are cleaned with water.
The silver paints are okay, but rather thin, their consistency is more like airbrush paint and much thinner than the old Game Color metallics. You can work with them, but they are not as good as Steel from the Vallejo Model Air series and Steel and Dark Steel from the Mecha Color series. Those are also airbrush paints, but their opacity is higher and they apply more nicely with a brush. Moreover, those three colours correspond very closely to the classic three silver paints from Games Workshop: Mithril Silver, Chainmail, and Boltgun Metal (or Stormhost Silver, Iron Hands Steel, and Leadbelcher for those that aren’t a grizzly Grey Hunter like me), whereas the new Game Color Gun Metal is significantly darker than Leadbelcher, and even darker than Iron Warriors. Easy color by number: Dive into a wide variety of pixel art images designed for both beginners and experienced colorists, featuring popular themes and unique content. Colors can illustrate shapes and patterns, which offers superb visuals for puzzle games like Blue and Lines. These games combine colors with music to create a beautiful and immersive experience.
