So in my quest to make Buckleys mega team have a special theme (big orcs dark, lesser orcs lighter. Except mega orcs who are near white). I found myself low on a green lighter than goblin green for the goblins. Thus I took a trip to town to have a gander at options if any, Vallejo (my goto paints) offered very limited choice so I looked at the GW paints (I feel dirty) and I was pleasantly surprised by the range ... but not the price :wink:. I did however have to ask what all the "base, layer, dry" business was about. Even so I came away with Skarsnik green and look forward to trying it out.

Anyway, have any of you used these paints or their suggested systems, good?, bad? If bad what do you use and why?

Am currently using base, layer, layer, glaze in greens to paint the skin of my crocs. Very happy with them. However the metallics are noticeably a lot more watery since boltgun metal and therefore not as good (IMO).

My experiences thus far is that the GW layers blend and cover really well over GW bases, but other companies Base colour they don't play so well with. Maybe this is just the ones I've used (green :P) hopefully your experiences will be different. Will be interested how you find them.
