For some reason, whenever I buy a pot of Kommando Khaki, it always comes watery and thin, and doesn't cover very well at all, especially over darker colours. Do reaper or vallejo make a good equivalent?
It's not one of your choices listed, but I have a preference for the Delta Americana line of acrylic paint- It covers well and it relatively inexpensive compared to the "specialized" model paints. It also comes in a WIDE variety of colors (Larger sekection than Reaper or Vallejo) and is available at most craft/hardware stores (Like Home Depot).
Reaper has several similar things. There's a Khaki triad, although I've also found that either of their bone triads works quite well in place of it as well. Aged Bone is very similar; if you prefer a slightly yellower khaki, Worn Ivory is a better color.
My girlfriend had this problem with her guard at first- however, if you based coat with Dheneb Stone (foundation paint), wash with devlan mud and then highlight with kommando khaki and then bleached bone, you'll get a great finish which is very quick and easy to do.
Thanks guys, I picked up a couple of the reaper and vallejo colours, as well as the P3 option that a friend recommended. I'm going to try them tomorrow, but I'll also give your recommendation a whirl mariachi.
