Got an opportunity to get the Reaper Paint kits from the Bones Kick starter and was wondering if they're a good deal...any advice is appreciated.

In my opinion they are good paints. Easy to use and they coat well if you make sure to shake them a lot so they mix.

There are a couple of downsides to the paints I don't like.

1. The bottle they are in means you constantly have to put paint onto the paint tray for use. I have a tendency of putting to much on the tray and I waste what I don't use.

2. It also has to do with the bottle. you can't add water to the paint if it is drying out without running the risk of ruining the seal of the paint, you cant stir it up either. The nossle tends to clog as well.

The only good thing I can say about the bottle is that it is very difficult to spill them.

They're a good deal. They have flow aid added to them, so they need less thinning than other paints. Reaper has an optional triad system, if you don't want to mix paints for highlighting and shading.

Myself, I use a wet palette. When I use a dropper, I end up with one or two drops of paint, enough for a few miniatures. Since I paint multiple miniatures at once, that works for me. And, thanks to the wet palette, I can return back to my paints later to continue using them.

Some of my metallic colors seem to clog up, others don't clog at all. I just use a paperclip to unclog the dropper.

If you're new to painting, though, I would first look at the "coming soon" updated Bones Learn to Paint Kits, particularly LTPK2: Beginning Skin and Cloth. The kits are also good values (if you don't already have the paints), and, of course, include lessons how to paint miniatures. Make sure you have your Winsor and Newton Size 1 Round brush handy!

we actually do a shout out to Reaper during our Video:) We have always had a great relationship with them and often they cast our master's for us when we do mini's...like the Lizard man 2 set....
