If this is correct and it's the OLD blood red then you sir, are indeed a legend. :sunglasses:

How is the old Blood Red any different?

The old blood red from the tall white pots (this makes me feel really old) was a lot darker than anything they produce now and was/still is my favorite red. I've got about 3ml saved and use it very sparingly

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a distributer, so we wouldn't be able to order anything directly from them for personal use. Its unfortunate, but we might be able to put together a bulk order....

Hell I'm out there, I might just order 20 pots of Chestnut Ink! :-P

If you go to the home page (http://www.gladiator.clara.net/index.htm), you'll find that the site was last updated January of 2001 :confused:

Workshop ordered the paints from a mahusive paint manufacturer. There's no way of getting old paints sadly.

I'll look into this a bit more.
I think an email to this company should work..

I have no idea what "mahusive" is meant to mean, but I get what you're meaning.... and it makes me sad :sad:

Don't get your hopes up with the update time being what it is.

They are still in business here is a link to a US distributer.

For ordering from Coat of arms there is a minimum order size. But the us distributer shipps world wide.

"These paints were previously marketed by GAMES WORKSHOP. Prior to them purchasing their paint from a French company. It is the same paint, the same colours, from the same manufacturer."

That's on the "Fantasy range" page, at the very top. So, it seems to me like this is the place that made a lot of GW's OOP stuff. Indeed, someone send them an email! I need me some Midnight Blue...

Are any of you aware of the name Blackhat on GW genre online websites?

(I have a bad feeling I have encountered such individual and, if it is, be careful).

Ummm Do you mean the company or a person???

A few years ago there was a rather infamous individual who went by that username.

On here or elsewhere on your internet travels?

I dont think its the same guy.
This is a company web page... But you never know.

Brannick

I think Grim is probably right.

Perhaps I am just being an overly cautious mother to the flock!

grimdisco

Brannick, i love that you are looking out for us here on Astro.
With the name being the same as the guy that Brannick knows (most likely not the same) some caution may not be bad advice.

Doesn't mean it can't be a username...
