    Sources of weathing powder

    I want to try out weathering powders on some drops pod. While i know of the FW products and have seen good results, i was wondering what alternative producers exist and if anyone has experience with them.

    Thanks

    Based upon my own experience using weathering powders (particularly on my own Drop pod) I'd recommend Tamiya weathering powders.

    Like the others I would suggest mig pigments. Ive used them since the titan, they are great, perhaps a little strange when it comes to sealing them, but thats all pigments for you.

    I do like oils though. Oil paints seem to be much more versatile. They seem to give richer colours and are easier to work with.

    There are many ways to work with these things. Drop me a PM if you want to talk on it.

    Hmmm. Looks like I'll be checking out Mig pigments myself now.

    Yea, they are great. Try mixing them into oils and/or inks/washes and experiment lots!

    I use pigments from secretweaponminiature.com
    Though I haven't tried MIG, the secretweapon ones I have are super fine and of great quality.
    At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!
