If you're a miniature painter and boardgamer, you can find some deals on FRPGames if you dig around the Clearance section. If you've just started painting and already have a starter set, the selection of paints on Clearance will give you a good supply of additional shades to add to your collection. The user interface is pretty ominous, so I recommend first dropdown by Discount Level, then by Product Type. No free shipping threshold, but shipping caps out at $10. FRPGames rarely has sales, so you can just check every few months, between KickStarters or whenever you need paint.

Boardgames (hardly inclusive):
* Terminator Genisys: Battle For The Future Miniatures Game: $20
* Kaos Ball: $25
* Core Worlds: Galactic Orders and Revolution: 50% off
* Guardians' Chronicles: $35 and 40% off expansions
* Kingsport Festival: $25
* Munchkin Expansions: Various : 50%
* Niagra: $28
* Power Grid Expansions: Various : 40%+ off
* Star Wars LCG: Various: 50%
* Village Crone: $25
* Zombicide: Various mini-expansions : 40%+ off
* Blue Moon Legends: $30
* Call of Cthulhu LCG: Mark of Madness and Thousand Young : $18 each
* Descent: Various Packs: 40%+ off
* Ghostbusters: $51
* The Witcher: $36

Paints (under Accessories):
* Reaper: 50% off : http://www.frpgames.com/cart.php?m=overstock&d=6&level=3&mfg...
* Vallejo: 50% off : http://www.frpgames.com/cart.php?m=overstock&d=6&level=3&mfg...
* Reaper: 40% off : http://www.frpgames.com/cart.php?m=overstock&d=6&level=2&mfg...
* Vallejo: 40% off : http://www.frpgames.com/cart.php?m=overstock&d=6&level=2&mfg...

I try not to look at their sales... too costly.

I have it, but this is one I like:

Thats a lot of painting! I'd make sure to get spray base coats and consider buying an airbrush. There are some great tutorials online.

Vallejo makes pre-mixed paints for airbrushes, called color air...they are on sale at FRP Games

I found a few things of interest for a decent price:

ORDER LIST:
------------------------------
[WZK71595] D&D Attack Wing: Wraiths [OS4] ($5.00)
[WZK71592] D&D Attack Wing: Sun Elf Troops [OS4] ($6.25)
[RIO428] Power Grid Expansion: Russia/Japan [OS3] ($7.47)
[FFGDJ32] Descent 2nd Edition: Treaty of Champions [OS2] ($20.97)
------------------------------
Subtotal: $39.69
Tax: $0.00
Shipping: $9.95
=============================
Total: $49.64

Compared to Amazon the above prices were all lower. Buying in a lot, the shipping was negligable

I don't have an ideal answer for you, but start with tutorials for beginning painters, as well as painting tutorials for figures from these two games, and basing tutorials. If you're new, the Reaper Learn to Paint Kits and Army Painter Quickshade Ink Set are a good range and foundation of paints to start with. If you expect to paint a lot of miniatures, picking up paints at a good discount will let you experiment with different shades of colors to compliment your existing set of paints. I still have paints I bought three years ago that I haven't used yet. (That's okay, since I have miniatures I bought three decades ago that I haven't painted yet!) Personally, I'd rather have the right paint I need in my collection, than find out none of my paints quite work for a miniature I'm painting. But you don't need to paint as well as those fancy pictures on the internet, and when you have 30+ miniatures to paint, spending a week per miniature won't be possible. For gaming, even a coat of color is better than an unpainted miniature. You can even paint your miniatures to a simple basecoat level when you're new, then return to them a year or so later, after you've gained experience, and continue painting them.

Thanks for the heads up. I managed to get the 'Vallejo Rust and Steel Effects Weathering Set' for 50% off. I've heard lots of good things about their sets and look forward to the learning from the instructions on this.

Thanks for that reference.

I fiddled with it earlier this year at a local comic shop that had a painting day. I am not sure I can hit his detail, but it looks worth trying.

I'm in the middle of painting my imperial assault set. I followed Sorastro's guide as well as learned general tips from Rob Oren (dice tower). I had never painted minis before, but I've been pretty happy how they have turned out.

Based on Rob Oren's advice for beginners, I've just been using Americana paints, except for Metallic where I use Folk Art. For washes I do use the GamesWorkshop Citadel stuff.

I did use Vallejo for the red on my royal guards. It's definitely much better paint, but Americana works just fine once you get down how to dilute it with water correctly. It just doesn't cover quite as well, so you might have to do an extra coat sometimes.

I've primed the figures with Krylon white or gray.



Camera flash is making the robes of the guards look shiny, although they aren't actually shiny in normal light, just the helmets.

Holy cow, dude, I *have* painted miniatures before, and those all came out spectacularly! Kudos!

Nice work! I never painted before either but Sorastro really inspired me. I started with some zombies from LNOE because they're filthy zombies, you can cover up mistakes with blood & grime!
Afterward I moved up to Imperial Assault.
Sorastro is my guru:
