Anyone used it?
What do you think and is it worth the price?

Is there any other powder to use?

No idea. But I'd love to know if they were worth it as well!

Forgeworlds powders are actually not priced that bad as far as pigments go. My buddy bought a set that I tried out and they seem to work pretty good. If cost is an issue with powders/ pigments I would suggest the Tamiya compacts. They are fairly inexpensive and work rather well. I have used the MIG ones and they are great. Powders and pigments have alot of uses and techniques that take a little practice but can produce some really great results.

I will have to agree with the recomendation from DoomOnYou72 Tamiya is king when it comes to these. And if you look around the net enough you can find some great tutorials on how to apply them correctly to achieve certain effects especially to vehicles. There is one in particular I remember that someone had done where they weathered a Black Templar Rhino to look like it had been on a desert world for a long long time it had rust holes in it and most of the paint was missing save a few spots and it just looked like it had been through hell. It was great.

I think I've heard of someone using art chalks and grinding them down to use as weather powders. I can't remember where I found it but it was a miniature painting blog where somebody was trying out new methods and tools as they came out. Very worth reading and the results (if I recall correctly) were both impressive and relatively easy.

They probably used artist pastels (non oil only) as thay are basically just pigments. If you go this route be aware that they will rub off easily and you lose alot when you seal (you can overcome this by using layers with sprays of matte or hairspray in between to "glue" them in place. The technique is used alot in the scale modelling and railroad world but they dont touch their toys as much as us Wink

There are quite a few weathering products available. Micro Mark has a lot of different things:

Powder & Pastel Chalk: http://www.micromark.com/SearchResult.aspx?deptIdFilter=0&searchPhrase=weathering+chalk

Chemical: http://www.micromark.com/SearchResult.aspx?deptIdFilter=0&searchPhrase=chemical+weathering

How-To-DVDs: http://www.micromark.com/SearchResult.aspx?deptIdFilter=0&searchPhrase=easy+weathering+techniques+%28dvd%29

I hope that's of some help. The DVDs look interesting...I wonder if they have closed captioning. What a Face
