No shit? :roll:

Any other gems from your painting masterclass you want to share with the class?

I'm guessing given your reference earlier that you're talking about Mustafa's Maurice there. In which case, it never provides a forest, but is always limited to a small marsh or rocky ground - exactly the sort of terrain that you might not be aware of until you hit it and which would not affect visibility of units in front of you.

It wasn't Maurice - never bought it - but Longstreet.
And you are right; I was conflating the 'Poor Surveying' and 'Trackless' cards.
Having said that it hasn't reduced my undying pissed offness with cards fucking up games.

I don't recall, fairly sure he was using them old-school but in my case :


a - no, as I'm backward. Oh, I mean yes, fucking obviously.

b- yes, directly from the bottle, as I would not then bitch about them if I had watered them down first, as I am not backward.

c - all of them, every single one of them. Over every other colour, not just black. White undercoat shows through all of them. Brown basecoat shows through all of them. I kept the green for doing bases, then realised it was taking 3 or 4 coats over white, and instead used a liter of domestic acrylic paint mixed up at Homebase instead, and got a significantly superior result.

They are shit.

It doesn't surprise me YOU were pleasantly surprised by them, as you are a contrary wee bastard. I still have many of my original GW paints from the late 80's through to the 90's on the go, and I compared them together. Coat D'armes are not a 'Near Equivalent'. They are a laughably sub-par pot of shit with similar names.

If it's any consolation, I agree with you about cards fucking up games. It tends to make them even more gamey than simulationy. If I want to play cards make it seven card stud with a high ante.

Sam Mustapha produced some cracking rules - Might & Reason is still one of my all time favourites, before he decided cards were the way to go. A pity.

I like to believe that his motives weren't monetising his product by selling extra card packs, but...

My point being that every cunt who ever laid a loaded brush on to a miniature knows that blue is more opaque than red, which is more opaque than yellow, you condescending tossbag.

And what Max said.

It could be that you're being a hyperbolic as usual or you ended up with a bad batch, but I've never had the problems you've experienced and not being a contrarian for the sake of it, unlike you. :lol: Coat d'Arms (old Citadel Colour) Paints Thread I've had issues with early 90s Citadel paints, such as Ultramarine Blue leaving a thick glossy coat, so was happy when Citadel altered the consistency in the mid 90s, but TBF, back then I applied colors directly from the pot. :shock:

This one is about making fun of TMP and the OFM.
This often leads to gaming, my Precious.
