"Marmite nature...!" I don't know why some many people are cool towards LC. I've had success with mine. I have yet to try and AK or MiG products but LifeColor works for me.

I painted a Panther in a 3 color hard edge scheme. Green was the base coat and it took 3 coats to cover. The red-brown took one coat. I want to cover in one coat. There is a lack of opacity consistency between the colors. I do like the color accuracy though, I think it is spot on.

I felt pigment load in this set was very good.
