Just curious what types of paint other people are using out there for their big terrain models. For things like the Openlock Castle, where I will be using a ton of one color, I like to buy the small wall paint samples from a place like Home Depot. I basically get three shades of grey, and drybrush for hours at a very small fraction of the cost of miniature paints.February 6, 2019 at 8:23 pm #135265
yeah thats a really cost effective way to do large projects like this, i go down and get them to colour match GW paints. they get pretty close.February 7, 2019 at 7:09 am #135305adamspfParticipant
I am using hobby store craft paints right now, but as my collection grows it might be better to follow your example. Do you use any specific color formulas?February 8, 2019 at 7:47 am #135467March 25, 2019 at 3:10 pm #142070woefulknightjbParticipant
I use folkart paints that I buy at walmart for the projects that need a lot of paint. Mainly grays, browns, blacks, etc. Works great for 3d projects, not so much on plastic minis.April 8, 2019 at 4:03 am #143323
For terrain priming and base coat I use Rustoleum 2x ultracover paint + Primer. For detail I use vajello and army painter paints.

That’s a nice paint job.April 26, 2019 at 2:24 pm #145709
What a fabulous paint job, I really like to colour you have used for the roof tiles. What colour paint did you use?July 10, 2019 at 2:10 am #152266
It’s Vallejo model color Red with a highlight of a lighter red and a home made dark brown/grey wash.July 10, 2019 at 10:22 am #152288
Thank you for that info, neat that you have experimented with your own wash colouring, great paint job.July 10, 2019 at 10:22 am #152289

I use a spray primer (dark grey or black), dry brush with cheepo craft paints, spray sealer coat. Now that I will be doing much larger projects I like the idea of getting small cans of basic colours at hardware stores. Very cost effective. Great idea Scott Holcomb. I will check Lowes/Rona.
