View Full Version : P3's point of origin
01-07-2011, 10:55 AM
I read somewhere that the P3's are actually made by a company called Coat de Armes or something like that. Can anyone conform this because I know that they made the old
Citidel paints and still do under thier own label?.

Hmmm *runs off to check bottle*
theres nothing on the bottle that would suggest that they are produced by coat de armes so i would say no they are not produced by them and are solely made by privateer

I'd like to know because the comments in question were derogatory.

The below information is from JTY's painting thread. It mentions another manufacturer, and that the manufacturer also makes Foundry paint, which I have never heard anything negative about. (Also, JTY specifically mentions the high quality of the paint, and given the quality of his work, I'll trust that.) It doesn't say who the manufacturer is though.
I paint using the Foundry paints, which are identical in make up to the P3 range, same manufacturer and all that, but they come in sets of three; shade, colour and hilight, and there are as a result about 280 unique colours in the range.
Nothing I do can't be learnt with 23 years practice, but good quality paint and brushes and plenty of water are the real secrets.
Edit: Kept looking, and found the reference to the manufacturer: HMG, which does make Coat De Arms. Can't vouch for the quality of Coat De Arms, but I would be surprised if it was poor quality, given the quality of their other paint lines.
I use Foundry paint, which is fundamentally the same stuff as P3 (same manufacturer, same recipe, made by a UK company called HMG who also produce their own Coat De Arms range and did the original GW range from way back when, hence why Mike McVey went to them for the P3 range, knowing they'd do a damn good job), but is a much larger range.

Thanks for the clarification.
