    I used them for a while, up until this summer. They worked very well for me.

    Absolutely yes, I perfer acrylics. I've found that if I thin them down, jjuuuuuuuuuussst a little bit, and go with thin layers they come out very very well.

    Most (not all, of course, as there are several here who use other paints) use acrylics on their TF customs. I think the larger concern is what kind of acrylics you already have that you plan to use on your TF customs :wink:

    I prefer Vallejo and Reaper ProSeries. Both are great quality paints, with the Reaper stuff edging ahead on coverage over Vallejo by a fraction. Also, Reaper's reds are better in that they don't turn pink when diluted.
    I also use a matte fixative spray when I'm done with a figure, just to seal the paint better.
