There I was hoping that Coat d'Arms still make their own paint. I'm not too fussed with P3 paint so far. I mean, they're alright, but not the messiah in a pot some people claimed that they were when they came out.

Anyway, I recently ordered a bunch of Coat d'Arms paints at another retailer and look very much forward to getting those, simply because the new GW pots just don't do it for me (lid closing, round tops so much harder to stack or to use as a makeshift socket.

Some of the coat d'arms paints were not that great. Yellow was a noticable poor colour. It was a nightmare as I was painting Impirial Fists at the time. Has that iporved or is the yellow still to be avoided.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Unknown, I use VMC and VGM for my primary paints, GW for washes and metallics, P3 for inks, tho I am moving to professional inks at this time. Better flow and a lot more in the bottle. If P3 = CdA then they do have a good base and awesome pigment count but I have not had a chance to mess with their yellows.

As to the quality, I only use the ink washes which I find very good. I dont know about the actual paints.....

Thanks for the name-check OrdoMalleus! Glad to hear you got your ink washes safely. We're rather fond of the ink washes, too.

@humakt: I wouldn't say the yellows are to be avoided, but I certainly wouldn't try and use a straight yellow, like Sun Yellow, on anything other than a white undercoat.
