GW vs. Vallejo

Postby -shinjikun1 » Sat Jun 11, 2005 11:02 am

Whats up guys? I was wondering how many people use Vallejo paints. Also I have been thinking it would be nice to have a few colors from the Model Color range at the Strat. Currently we only carry Game Color range, which is designed to emulate the GW range. If any one is interested in a Model Color range paint let me know. We can only order them in boxes of 6 so I need to get a consensus before asking Danny

I use both the Game and Model lines and would certainly buy Model colors from the Strat if they sold them.

I like Vallejo, but not all of there paints. First off there's two types of Vallejo.

Second, I find some of the Vellejo colors have a semi gloss to them that bugs me... That said, the paints definately have a lot more pigment and tend to be much smoother.

I'd be interesteded in their (Vallejo's) alcohol based metallics - heard they are sweet!! Might be a good place to start

They are, in fact, sweet. Don't let them dry on the brush or your palette--they dry hard as a rock. :)

I'm always hearing great things about model color's not-quite-black color and one of those purples. I'd like to get those.

Also I asked Danny awhile back about Floquil's textured basing paint (or maybe it was Coat d' Arms?). It's supposed to work well for bases and be faster than gluing ballast.

SS Cam Black Brown is the awesome, almost black color. It's a must own in the line, as is Cork

Don.... I'm not sure what you mean...?

Do you want the specific paints from the model line I'm especially fond of?

The ones I've made most use lately are:

818 Red Leather
820 Off White
822 S.S. Black Brown
837 Sand Light
858 Ice Yellow
862 Black Grey
904 Dark Blue Grey
916 Sand Yellow
939 Smoke
982 Cavalry Brown
994 Dark Grey

But... I own all these colors (including multiples of the major ones) -> it's the entirety of the line that would be most useful to me.
