Privateer Press to Release New Formula P3 Paint Line

Seattle, WA. July 14th, 2006—Privateer Press, Inc. announces their production of Formula P3, a hobby paint line to compliment their miniature lines HORDES™ and WARMACHINE®. Designed by Privateer Press' miniatures director and industry pioneer Mike McVey, the Formula P3 paint line launches with 36 colors in six sets designed for both beginner and professional hobbyists.

Mike McVey has this to say about the new product line:

"I have been involved with the design and development of miniature paints for over sixteen years now. In that time I have designed five complete ranges, two of which have formed the backbone of the hobby since the early nineties. There have always been things that I wish had been done differently, so Formula P3 was my chance to design what I considered to be the very best paints. I firmly believe we have done that.

Formula P3 has been in development for many years. These paints strike the perfect balance of smooth application and opacity that professional painters demand. The addition of both base and highlight of our studio colors gives an endless range of color choices that mix effortlessly even for beginners."

The new paint line includes colors hitherto unavailable to the public made specifically for painting WARMACHINE models, and each set is designed to give the beginning hobbyist an edge by providing both a base and highlight of colors such as Khador Red, Cygnar Blue, Menoth White, and Cryx Bane. On sale in October 2006, the Formula P3 paint line will hit the shelves initially with six sets of six colors each. A complete line of colors and inks are planned for early 2007, including sets for painting HORDES models based on studio colors.

Privateer Press, Inc. was founded in 2000 by Matt Wilson and Brian Snoddy and produces the award-winning miniatures war game WARMACHINE, the hugely popular HORDES miniatures war game, and the award-winning Iron Kingdoms role-playing setting.
