Highly Recommend. I got some Reaper paints at the same time and a couple of shades coordinate really nicely:
Elven Armour works pretty well with Reaper's Icy Violet 09425. It is not a dark blue it's more towards periwinkle, the name makes more sense seeing it in person lol
Royal Purple is a bright purple that looks like it'll work easily with shades like Reaper's Runic Purple 09424 or Eldritch Purple 09463
Zephyr Pink.. It's pink, it's metallic, it's smooth and also goes on well but I'm not really into pink
Glitter Green is a little light for my tastes, not necessarily pastel but kind of like Easter basket grass green. I'm considering mixing in a dash of my favorite green (Reaper's Brilliant Green) and seeing what happens :)
I'm planning to work Tainted Gold (sickly yellow-y green, like moss, or cartoon vomit) into my Young Green Dragon. I want to work in some menacing Metallics even though he's a chromatic dragon. Follow your heart ;)
Azure Magic is gorgeous! I feel like this is already one of the most treasured paints in my collection. It's so distinctive and I'm officially dying to paint an ocean scene for D&D and a million sea creatures!
Evil Chrome, beautifully pigmented again, different from my other coppers. I'm sure it'll come in handy!
Gemstone Red? LOVE. My first metallics were Turbo Dork and extremely dissapointing, their red was almost magenta and more of a pale wash with a hint of sparkle at best. I use Gemstone as a BASE COAT for little armor details! It's gorgeous. With Citadel's Spiritstone Red on top I'm able to make my ideal metallic beautiful bright shiny red and I'm incredibly grateful for the detailed reviews I read online for this set of Army Warpaint Metallics that convinced me to buy it!
Fairy Dust- guys.. This covers better than I thought possible. I was blown away when I did my initial tests in my notebook, after first shaking to get out the excess fluid I make myself a quick color reference. A thick line of this can cover up the lines in my notebook... Incredibly nice, also silky smooth and you could use this for a winter white cloak, orrrr sparkling seafoam on a Dungeons & Dragons ocean scene or at least something more than detailing. So many options! My White Dragon is getting a magical sparkling wash on his wings, he's gonna be magnificent.
Night Scales was somehow a bit of a disappointment for me. I was excited and I bought another bottle separately. It somehow doesn't cover quite as well but covers enough to obscure details beneath. I haven't figured out a way to use it as a wash successfully. It just kinda goes on dulling too much color and kinda too silvery? But I'm an amateur I just tested (separately each time) with Vallejo wash medium (which I disliked, smelled aweful and separated but maybe it's only meant for their washes), water, various Citadel Contrast Paints and Reaper's drying retardant. Applied straight it dries a bit blue toned. Reaper's Adamantium Black is my Black-black metallic go to for now. It has a note of deep charcoal grey, less cool toned than Night Scales.
For the most part, these lay on beautifully and you probably don't need a base color underneath but you certainly could. Lots of options and the smooth pigmentation really opens up a whole other world of inspiration.
Side note for comparison: Reaper's Sparkling Amethyst is a rich deep purple and worth having even if you own this set, it's completely different but still really nice. I'd recommend Cursed Gold from Reaper if you want a "yellow" for your metallic rainbow collection! It came with my other set and it's the perfect addition
Also Army Painter's mixing balls? Incredibly useful with these. And after these (set comes with some) I'm glad I bought more, every paint I own has one in it. Especially Citadel lmao.
