Sorry in advance, but I will be getting a little bit commercial for this episode. Hopefully by the time you finish reading this entry you will forgive me, as it is totally about rocking the retro.
First I am just going to whip out something that came in the mail from the land of Ebay a couple of weeks ago.
|Citadel Monster Paint Set|
|Mmmm... Still fresh!|
I was surprised to find the paints where still in great shape; though unfortunately not the original colors that are supposed to be in the box, but I knew that when I bid. I was more concerned about getting the box to be honest and perhaps having a sniff of the paints! It holds great nostalgia for me. What a great day that was back in the 80's!
Okay, now the commercial bit.
Remember I was ranting about the orange when I painted the Chaos Sorcerer? The next picture shows an original 1980s citadel pot next to the modern Coat D'arms paint. See? How awesome is that?

So that brings me to my big news...
There is a new stockist in Australia for Coat D'arms paints!
That's right. I love the paints so much I decided to import them.
In a couple of weeks you will be able to get your hands on the entire Coat D'arms Fantasy Range direct from my new sleek, sexy, easy to use e-commerce site. Retroliciousness in a few clicks!
Yep, all 77 clasic colors in those fat, perky little 18ml pots. You can forget the dark days paying 8 Australian Dollars for a measley 12ml.
I will also be stocking decent, sturdy empty dropper bottles for those of you who, like me, prefer squirting to dunking. Switching your entire collection of paints over to droppers will be really affordable now. I am excited. You excited?
Anyway, here is more paint pron.
So next episode I will be back to showing off more retro stuff. Painting the Skulldred contributor minis has taken up a lot of my painting time allotment but rest assured, there is old lead begging to be painted and blogged.
Anyhoo... Goodnight children, whatever you are.
(Coat D'Arms rocks.)
