POLL DESCRIPTION

richarDISNEY Inactive Member wonders...

Well, for 2011, I have kicked off my New Year's Resolution of painting up a ton of my Grand Manner terrain.

I cleaned up the model and gave it a good washing in soapy water (as it is a resin model). After priming it, I brought it to my workbench and started to paint it up using my regular Reaper Pro paints.

Then, when Reaper recently announced that they will stop making their Pro Paint line, this got me thinking...
  • Should I be using these paints for everything?
  • Or should I be using some cheap craft paints, and then do the highlighting and detail work with my good paints?
  • Or just do the terrain all in cheap craft paint?
What do you do?
