Review: New Vallejo Game Color range – now for pro painters only?

New Vallejo Game Color review featured image
7.0

With the help of painting legend Angel Giraldez, Vallejo not only changed but reinvented their venerable Game Color paint range. A more matt finish, better pigmentation, lots of new colours, but also a lot of old colours gone or changed. I’m afraid whether the new Game Color formula is really an improvement, or only catering to pro painters like Angel while neglecting the needs of us more average painters. Was the old Game Color range really so bad it needed to be redone from scratch? I answer this question and more in my review of the complete new Vallejo Game Color range.

The Army Painter updated their Colour Primer range, amongst the new colours their first ever gold spray paint with a Colour Primer version of their Greedy Gold Warpaint. I was allowed to review the final prototype, and since gold spray paints with good value for money are hard to come by, I was very curious to see what The Army Painter had developed. Could it be the best gold spray paint on the market yet? We find out in this review.

Review: Green Stuff World Dipping Inks – the 60ml Contrast killer?

Six of Green Stuff World Dipping Inks lined up for a review
8.5

Today I’m going to review Green Stuff World’s brand new Dipping Inks, yet another Citadel Contrast “clone”. What makes them special is their size: The paints come in large 60ml bottles, which is more than three times the capacity of a pot of Citadel Contrast, and that for an RRP of 5.75 €. More paint for less money, sounds too good to be true? Let’s take a closer look if these new Dipping Inks are worth it or not.
