70891 Intermediate Green, 70910 Orange Red, 70927 Dark Flesh, 70940 Saddle Brown, 70950 Black, 70951 White, 70963 Medium Blue and 70997 Silver - a modest beginning but a significant one for me!
I have been a long time Humbrol paint man - since way in the early 1970s - and indeed, I still have a fondness for them as well as a sizeable collection of tins, many of them dating back until then! I have dabbled in acrylics for occasional projects with varying degrees of success - primarily for things like Battlefleet Gothic spaceships or the odd Battletech mech. I have not used them at all on figures as the only time I tried it did not end well.
I have some 28mm figure painting plans for this year - very much at the skirmish level rather than full scale armies - so I have taken the plunge and invested in a starter set of Vallejo paints. Yes I know that the palette I have is very limited but for me this is very much a statement of intent so I will add to the selection as required. I should mention that I have been using Vallejo black, white and buff for some time and have been hugely impressed with them in terms of coverage and flow so it was an easy decision to make as to which paints to get.
I will still use the Humbrols - I have far too many to replace in one hit - and reckon that I will still be buying them but the quantum shift is now in place and so acrylics will become a larger part of my painting armoury.
I feel as though I have finally caught up with the 21st century so better late than never!
