    As I recall, phosporescent paint is a sort of snotty-white by day.
    I wonder if you could tint it and have it still glow?

    Yes but the tint will absorb and darken the glow.

    From experiments with glowing dice I found gaming in the dark impossible. So what happens is you turn out the lights, everyone goes 'Oooh...ahhh', the lights come on and you play like normal. Also, glow in dark paint is not very bright, you have to have absolute black to see it in miniature size patches, and it looses it's glow very quickly. You also can't see your books, terrain, or anything else.

    A better option is florescent paint, the glow in black light stuff. There are more colors, they have color under normal light, and black lights can be bright enough to see the rest of your stuff. It also makes for a very cool mood. Metal colors reflect pretty well and a number of paints show up bright even though they are not black light paints. Also the paint glows as long as the lights are on.

    Snow terrain looks especially bright if you paint it with a florescent white spray.

    Some black light Necrons would be very cool.

    Yeah. UV reactive Flourescent maybe the way to go.
    I originally liked the idea of an EC army that gave off an eerie glow at night on their display shelf. I wasn't planning on playing in the dark!

    Having an army that glows while you're playing would be extra cool. Maybe I could paint the Children flourescent pink and white with the occaisional flouro yellow detail and play under UV lights.

    UV light is bad for your eyes if you look directly at it. I could maybe make a terrain peice that contains a shaded UV light, so it shines on the table top but not up at the players. Something like a big mutant Chaos mushroom.

    I'm sure the Children love their 'shrooms

    my dad came up with this idea... if you either have a white paint sceme or want to put some white on your minis, you can play by black light.... it will make your guys glow and it wont be too dark
