One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Reaper Miniatures Releases New Master Series Paints

Reaper Master Series Paints

As a model painter there are a lot of tools that I need to have at my disposal. I need to make sure I have sturdy, strong brushes, a well-cleaned water container, a nice surface to paint on, palettes that can stand up to wear and tear, and of course, reliable paints. I’ve recently been switching from Vallejo to Citadel paints and I’ve been quite happy so far. When choosing paints you have to pick up a brand you can get behind, because the colors are what will make your models stand out.

Among the model painting/wargaming community a lot of players stand behind Reaper paints. Reaper Miniatures is a company that has created a giant name for themselves among tabletop groups all across the world. They’ve successfully funded Kickstarters for giant lots of models, and they’ve got a line of paints that reflect the same care and quality that their models show. While their current line is still widely popular, Reaper has just announced their brand new line of paints that they’re calling the Master Series.

According to the Reaper website, the main points of the new Master Series paints are as follows:

Master Series Paints Core Colors

  • Smooth and fluid right out of the bottle means less thinning required

Both sets include a paint caddy and are shipped right to your door! If you’re already a Reaper paints fan this may be something to bolster your collection with, and if you’re looking for a new line of paints you may want to give the Master Series line a try. It works for orcs, warjacks, heroes, and just about anything else you can think of!
