NEW 28mm WW2 Hungarian infantry from Great Escape Games

Post by CarlL » 24 Feb 2018, 19:49

see http://www.greatescapegames.co.uk/minia ... arian.html or

lots of photos at http://theminiaturespage.com/news/?id=1925926063

Great looking figures. Great photos and basing helps the look.

They are also doing a Hungarian uniform paint too! "Quick Overview 17ml AK Interactive Figure Series Paints" But even their knock down price of £17.50p seems far too expensive for 17ml pot of brown paint. The normal price is £20 for 17ml pot.

I think I would risk mixing my own from likes of Works acrylic paints where their Crafters paint range is £1 for 59ml, availability in shops depends on whats gone from display, but I found 4 colours I was looking for at Barnsley's " Works" shop and many others available. for example see their webpage at https://www.theworks.co.uk/c/art-suppli ... lic-paints

Admittedly you wont get ready made "Hungarian Infantry Brown" but with a resonable eye and shallow plastic tray and cut down straw to pipette water you can mix and match your colour and reduce the heavy opaque nature of these paints with some water (just a little drop at a time mind - hence the pipette)

I'm sure you can mix up a reasonable representation of the Hungarian uniform colour for a lot cheaper that that price!! :shock:

I'm a big fan of craft paints but find the Royal & Langnickel range as sold by the Works to be quite low quality and need a lot of coats to get a good finish. I recently painted a Zvezda ISU122 with them and happy with the end result but not sure it was worth the effort it took to get there.

Decoart are my preferred options but not so easy to get hold of since Hobbycraft stopped stocking them. They now stock Pebeo which are quite good but limited number of colours. Their own range is not too bad either. My favourite budget range is Docrafts available at the Range at £1.25 each.

Looking at the pictures I'd suggest Decoart Americana Honey Brown or Docraft Chocolate for Hungarian uniforms. The pics on TMP look quite different Decoart Crafters Country Maple would work for that.

I think you will find that is 7 paints for £17.5 on reading the advert, meaning each pot is £2.50.

That's 126ml for £17.50p and Works offers 118ml for £2. OK not in Hungarian infantry brown but mixed a good representation of same from similar cheap paints for my 10mm Hungarian figures.
