Vallejo Inks?
« on: April 14, 2016, 10:56:24 PM »
I see a lot of references to Vallejo inks in forums, I'm wondering if most people are using exclusively the Game Colour inks, or if many of those people are also using the Fine Arts line of Acrylic Artist Inks.

I am looking for a very opaque dark brown with a little bit of a glossy finish like the old Citadel Ink. The closest I've found so far is the Privateer press, but it's VERY red in hue. Gives an excellent dried blood look, which I will be very happy to have on my Chaos stuff (and Tyranids, if that ever comes together...), but not what I'm looking for in an all-purpose brown. I'm also wondering if anyone has experience with the Skin Wash (the only brown) from the Game Colour line, and if that gets really nice and dark in the crevasses. In the little swatch square they show for it in the Inks set on the web page doesn't look too dark, nor does it in the photo of the set.

I've not used their ink line but have found their regular colors to be helpful with projects I'm trying to achieve a matte finish on as GW paints tend to be strictly gloss or satin finish.
