About this deal

Thank you for scrolling through my Speedpaint 2.0 review to this point. Now, the moment you waited for: metallic Speedpaints. These are… something. I was able to review the three colours from the Mega Set, but there’ll be 10 in total. I have to admit, I was a bit underwhelmed when I saw the promo shots, so I was eager to give them a try.

All the paints are watery, but the metallics are even more so, so make sure to be more liberal than usual to bring out the sheen. Army Painter Speedpaint Mega Set 2.0 Review – TestingSince receiving these paints I’ve started using them as a permanent fixture in my painting toolbelt. The range is very flexible and offers a variety of colors and hues that are difficult to find in competing ranges. There are a couple that underperformed compared to other paints in the range so there’s some variance (Nuclear Sunrise and Glittering Gold stand out in my memory as colors I wish I had but the paints don’t quite behave properly) but its certainly worth exploring the range despite this for the colors that are straight magic in a bottle We recommend priming your miniatures with Colour Primer Matt White for best adhesion and vibrant colour The mecca of one-coat paint solution sets, the Speedpaint Complete Set features every Speedpaint colour in existence! That includes all 23 original colours, 44 newly developed colours, 10 Speedpaint Metallics - AND - 12 colours designed by Dana Howl, Watch It Paint It, and Goobertown Hobbies of our Paint Development Team! The set also includes an extra-large 100ml bottle of Speedpaint Medium.

This time, there are three new box sets and even something for retailers! So plenty to sink your teeth into.Next, I had my brand-new HQ addition to my list, the Nerotyrant, and with that, my love of Goddess Glow really came through. The speed paint does an amazing job with its color and simplicity, and I didn’t feel any need to use a wash over the paint I was already using. Again, I used the Bony Matter paint, and then I moved into using the Raging Sea paint for the brain matter. For the pipeing that is on the base, I used the Ashen Stone paint which again, was amazing with its coverage. Question remains, which is my favourite range of all? I still prefer Contrast, as they are the most richly pigmented paints, and have a good selection of colours. Xpress Colors are a close second, but I also use the few unique Dipping Ink colours you can’t find in the Contrast range. I wasn’t a fan of the original Speedpaint’s reactivation, but now that the 2.0 formula made the paints more stable, I can definitely see using them more often. Instant Colors are the most different from all the others as they use opaque pigments, you can create some nice effects with them but I’ll only use them rarely. The all-in-one Speedpaint is true one-coat painting solution. Compared to its predecessor, the new Mega Set 2.0 comes with a new formula, expanded colour range that includes 45 new colours, and for the first time ever, it introduces Speedpaint Metallics!
