    Hi there, anyone tried both theese ranges and noted any differences? In drying matt? In mixing with non scale additives? Asking for a friend who thinks the non fantasy line mixes worse with reaper additives than reaper does….

    Hi @flancen

    I’ve used both of these paint recently. I picked up some scale75 paints to try not realising they were separate ranges. To be honest, I can’t notice much if any difference between either. Both dry very matte. They are a little harder to work than citadel and P3 paints in my opinion (I use a brush) but you get a lovely even coverage. The paints are certainly, in my experience, more fragile than other paints I have used. They can rub off if you aren’t careful, which I have learnt the hard way on my most recent project. Some say the fantasy line is more robust than scalecolour; I have noticed no difference. With patience, you can get lovely finishes though.

    I can’t comment on mixing with other mediums as I haven’t done this with them yet.

    So in my opinion;

    - Fantasy range is more satin, the regular range is more matt
    - The regular range needs a lot more mixing before use.
    - The regular range has better pigment density which makes them great for base coats
    - I use Vallejo thinner for airbrushing with them with no issue.

    Are they good for blending? Would using a “normal ” for basecoat and then fantasy for layering work?:)
