    According to colors and paints it really nice... but I expected more models in the paint model section... and I think I haven't a single seraphon in the list...

    But there is my Padawan, Saurus Warrior about 3/4 down and although there is only one Seraphon the colours used on other models will come in handy.

    There is one, a Saurus Warrior. But that one's good as a template for quite a few units I guess.
    They will bring more units into it in the future I hope. :)

    Yeah it's pretty nice... I still just do things by eye though.

    I think is a good way to get an idea of how to achieve certain effects... for example the dark skin... I don't own half the colors recommended but can get an idea which of my paints I could work with... never had in mind to use a purple wash on rinox hide... tried it... found it not as I wanted but tried red wash followed by a blue wash and was pleased with the result... now I'll try how my lighter browns will do the job for the highlights... then decide wether to buy new colors, mix the ones I already own or just use what I have...

    I think my favorite feature is the inventory. "These are the ones I have, these are the ones I need." Now I just have to input all my info and keep it updated...

    I quite like the app, but it seems I cannot find any tutorials on how to use the Technical Paints (Nihilak Oxide, Typhus Corrosion, etc)... Can you point me where they are, if they are at all? It would be handy to have them in the app.

    There is currently only one tutorial for the Technical paints and that is "Blood for the blood god"

    It is in the Getting started section under Technical

    Pretty sure I saw some tutorials for the overpriced snow stuff and the cracked earth paint in YT somewhere...

    Warhammertv had tutorials on YouTube when they first came out. Do a quick search for the paint and they should pop up.

    Yeah, thanks guys: they are all in their YouTube channel...
    I hope they put them in the app (maybe expanding the Getting Started page by adding a sub-menu, something like Getting Started->Technical->Whatever tech paint you choose) cause it's not smart leaving those vids floating something on the web of you have an app of this kind! :locktopic:

    I hope they also add a Slann among the miniatures you can see.

    Input info ?
    How hard did they make it?

    I would hope it is just a matter of calling up a master list and tapping a checkmark button...

    Yeah, it's that easy. The issue is on my end, finding time to input all the info. I have very limited hobby time right now and even a small 15 minute project like this is tough to find time for. I have other things I'd rather do.
