He has done it. Alongside his partners at Trans Atlantis Games, Duncan Rhodes has achieved his final form. Once the golden scion of painting at Games Workshop, Rhodes has stepped out of their shadow, launched his YouTube channel and has now taken to Kickstarter with his very own paint range, Two Thin Coats.

No doubt to the relief of folks, the Two Tin Coats Paints are not simply a relabelled set of off-the-shelf paints by another company. Rhodes has worked with their fancy chemists and tinkerers to create a range of paints from the ground up that suit his particular style of painting.

Each of the fifty-four paints within the range has been designed to give maximum coverage, vibrancy and also (as the name would suggest) thin down well. They all come in dropper bottles and fit into groups of three.

This means for every core colour, be that red, green, yellow, blue or something else, you will have a shadow, a midtone and a highlight. This means that as a newcomer to painting or as a veteran, you can follow a three-step process to making your miniatures pop. We've seen how good this step-by-step process can work with Games Workshop so it's no surprise it is replicated here.

If you're interested in how miniatures look when painted up using Rhode's paints there is a gallery (above) and a video over on their project page showing the full process.

Kickstarter Add-Ons

As well as the options to buy a single paint, a group, or all of them, the folks behind the project are also offering up miniatures, scenic bases and more for you to snap up as well.

I like that we've already got a narrative forming behind the Two Thin Coats paint range. Sir Coates and Princess Sophia must contend with the dastardly Baron Von Evile and his thick "out of the pot" antics. There is even a fancy Battle Pug in the mix too.

The proof will be in the pudding (or pots) as is the case with all new paint ranges but it seems like they are starting from a good base level. We'll have to see if we can get our hands on some of these later on down the line and give them a shot!

Are you tempted by this new paint range from Duncan Rhodes?
