I have some figures which through wear and tear have lost paint around their faces.I was thinking of repainting them but have no idea where to start.What kind of paint should I use and where can I buy the paint are my 2 main questions.I really dont need expensive stuff just enough to make them look good.

Thanks in advance
Cheers
Jonathan

There's supposedly a type of paint that the fantasy war-gamers use that comes in a bunch of flesh colors, Elf flesh, Dwarf flesh... For example, Citadel Paints: http://oz.games-workshop.com/games/warhammer/highelves/gettingstarted/start_paint.htm

I've never used them. Has anyone ever used them? Would they be good just to *touch up* the inevitable nicks on the noses without entire repaint? I have several figures in need of touch up but not total repaint (yet).

Anyone?

Yes. I use the acrylic Badger Sunburnt flesh quite a bit and its a good base color if you dont want a pale looking figure. But the durability is about the same as any other acrylic.

I wish you could get it at Hobby Lobby. I can't remember where I got it but heres some links:

My bottle says: Badger Freak Flex Suntan Flesh #13-109.
It's good stuff and it's already thin enough to use in an airbrush, meaning it can go on like a wash if you want it to. If you use this stuff along with Bobafetts tutorial you should be very happy with your work.
1/6 happy, I found some other stuff that's very close to this right there in your neighborhood at Hobbytown. They have some fantasy acrylic colors that will work too, but I definitely think you guys should get the Badger suntan.
