Review: I used this paint at Skirmish USA for their 1500 person Stalingrad Scenario yesterday. I bought 2 cases of it, only went through 1 and 1/4 (1bag), which is alot less then i expected because i was holding down the trigger whenever i was on the front lines. I guess i should break it down into each point of strengths and weaknesses.

Very Hard to Break- THIS PAINT WILL NOT BREAK IN YOUR HOPPER!!! Its very very durable, and even after dropping half a case from 3 feet up into the cardboard box, didn't get a single break, and was able to use them for later in the day.

Even though im not putting much into the Strengths area, believe me, this paint was great field paint, perfect for the scenario.

Very Hard to Break- Now i never had a problem with it, every time i hit someone, paint broke on them. For every 20 times i got shot yesterday, it broke once on me, usually that being my hands or back. I ran a suicide charge, got shot about 50-60 times, only thing that broke was on my gun, and guns hits don't count at Skirmish(wish i am rather upset about, because i would have had many many more kills).

Price- I don't know why Skirmish has such a high price on paint ($73+tax per case), but i didn't really mind it. They have free n2 and co2 fills all day, so it offsets the paint cost.
Conclusion: Other notes include:

The paint says in light blue lettering, so you can use it anytime at any of Skirmish's scenarios or regular game days.

The paint has a white fill, which ruins clothes =D

Overall, i loved this paint, and didn't mind the price, because of the awesomeness of the scenario.

Giving it a 9 out of 10 because even though i had no personal problems, i should have been out a lot more then i was because it never broke on me, maybe i was just lucky =D
9 out of 10
