TRO: hitler's my actual paints. The bubble gum pink I mixed a big batch of using Reaper's white leather (hands down, flat out the BEST white paint I've ever used. I've tried all the major brands) matte medium, flow improver and super old citadel red ink. Red is Reaper blood red and off white is Reaper Bloodless Skin (another great color, juuuusstt a tint of green in a bone/ivory base). Washes are made from: Blue, Badger opaque blue. Purple, Reaper violet shadow. Pink, my bubble gum pre-mix turned into a wash. I'm a compulsive paint mixer so giving my recipes can be tough when I'm not 100% how I made them :oops:

You are asking the paints right? Not how I made the textures...just realized I may have been answering the wrong question :roll:

Nope. His paints are actually 100% pure Hitler. While many joke about the Ruskies keeping his brain alive in a jar, the reality is that a few petri dishes of stem cells and clever siphoning technique turned Hitler's biomass into a highly collectible and sought after line of miniature paints.

Just got this beast out of the simple green and ready to start March. Why did it take almost a month to strip? Well the first coat was red with black tiger stripes, under that was blue spraypaint, under that was green and a darker blue, under that was white and grey, under that was black primer and more red! So many layers of paint that before I started I thought that the previous owner had shaved all the rivets off :roll:

That's a hell of a rescue job there! As someone who plays with an awful lot of old models, I know the pain of eBay salvage jobs. Best of luck with it, I look forward to seeing what you can do.
