Has anyone had a chance to try these WWI paints? I want to find a decent linen color and stumbled upon them, are they any good worth buying?Thanks

I bought some of them last year, but unfortunately i did not have the opportunity to try them yet (no WW1 build since then).

In their jars, they look good. :)

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Unfortunately the PB problem means there are no images.  At least not for me.

I use them for my WNW builds. They are sweet smelling lacquers that dry very quickly and gloss. I love them. Coverage is great and yet they are this enough to build up depth of colour in layers with the bright colours. They are used neat and mix easily. I like the authenticity of using basic shades to create camo just as was done in the field.

Paint quality is superb, but I have pretty serious concerns about color accuracy. There’s no supporting documentation for their color claims and some shades are much darker than anything depicted before including old photos - the mauve and the grey-green for example.

I use their basic colours to make the camo tints. I like my mauve a bit blue. The Prussian blue and Red are great for Jasta markings and you can be bright or translucent by the number of coats.
