"A nice place to start."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The set has all your basic colours to allow you to mix and blend to make any colour you need, plus leather and flesh tones to save you from having to mix those yourself. It would be even better with a second metallic tone, to enable some variation in metallics, but that's a minor complaint.

Not all colours are created equal here, with a few of the lighter colours going on slightly patchy, but every paint brand has one or two colours that are on the weaker side. Overall, the paints are highly pigmented and thin down wonderfully.

The set comes with their “strong tone” wash (a great timesaver), but the paints are high quality enough that you can thin down any colour to create washes of your own.

"Just getting started- This is amazing."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This set of paints (with a few addons like gold and copper) cover just about every basis you would need for painting humanoid miniatures. It comes with a good brush and an instruction booklet, but I didn't use the latter as I had already researched everything about painting my first mini. The paints look beautiful even when watered down. If you don't use preprimed minis like from wizkids, don't forget to get some primer!

"Great range"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A really good range to start painting with. Would like to see a brighter purple or a deeper red but aside from that, it's terrific! Really good set that has gotten me really into my painting.

"Bought for wooden boats"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Bought this kit for wooden model boats I build. Applies really well to the small wooden parts, dries really fast. Doesn't stick to superglue/ CA glue.
