Welcome to the Lair, David (from Ireland) from Stephen (from Scotland). Sorry I can't advise you but hopefully Justin or manngrasshopper (two that immediately spring to mind) can lend a hand. If they don't reply, search out their threads as I'm sure the paints are listed.
Try Death Warrior as a starting point. Hope Justin doesn't mind.
Good luck.

Weclome man, where bouts in Ireland are ya? (theres a few of us here now )

Games workshop has a good selection of colours for painting these kits up, as to what colours to use im not the may west with that but as Stephen said above looking at other threads will give you a good idea same goes for the suit paint ups if you see the colours you like.

Best of luck

Ah a fellow northsider!

Definatly give gamesworkshop a shot and see what you think. Other than that theres just the usual oil paints from the likes if k&m evans off caple street and such. Only a matter of time before you get hooked on a suit!

Nice work on the website, good to see more collectable shops starting up here

The one bit of advice I would give about painting anything resin is to wash it in warm soapy water to make sure all the mold release has been removed. If any of it is still on there it may cause the paint to peel or flake off. Hope this helps.
