AMMO by MIG Jimenez has released a batch of new painting and finishing products. Let’s take a look in detail:

AMMO by MIG Jimenez
Dio Drybrush Paint
A.MIG-0604 - Panzer Grey
A.MIG-0611 - Medium Rust
A.MIG-0617 – Medium German Yellow
A.MIG-0619 - Earth
A.MIG-0621 – Light Metal
A.MIG-0622 – Gun Metal

AMMO’s newest finishing product is a range of acrylic Dry Brush Paints.



Who amongst us has not been found digging into the bottom of a jar of paint with the wooden end of a paint brush to extract the thick, congealed paint to use for dry brushing?

Well, AMMO has now saved us the trouble by providing a full bottle of thick acrylic paint in a big range of colours.



The range includes generic colours, camouflage shades and even metallics.

I confess that when I opened the box I thought it was a bit gimmicky, but on examining the paints more carefully I think they are actually a genuinely useful idea.



The metallic colours offer some really interesting possibilities too. I’ll certainly be using some of these on my next project. I’ll buy the White dry brush paint too so that I can mix multiple light shades.



You’ll never run out of the thick paint on the lid or at the bottom of the jar again!

Mud Effects Solution Set
Item No. A.MIG-7807



This bumper set supplies a big selection of acrylic and enamel mud weathering products.



AMMO supplies a double-sided cardboard sheet with captioned quick tips in full colour.



Contents of this set are:



Three Pigment sets covering pale to dark shades of earth and dust.

Pigment A.MIG-3023 – Sinai Dust
Pigment A.MIG-3026 – Golan Earth
Pigment A.MIG-3029 – Winter Soil



Two bottles containing thick, enamel-based mud colours.



You’ll be able to accumulate this thick mud in layers and different colours for a structural effect.

Heavy Mud A.MIG-1701 – Thick Soil
Heavy Mud A.MIG-1705 – Wet Mud



Two bottles of Medium Density Mud Splashes. These may be flicked from a flat brush using the handle of another brush or an airbrush.



They may also be applied directly where thicker mud is not appropriate. I think I will also try the Dry Earth applied directly to tracks, then wiped off with a clean cloth.

Medium Density Mud Splashes A.MIG- 1750 – Dry Earth
Medium Density Mud Splashes A.MIG- 1754 – Damp Earth



Two bottles of acrylic earth-coloured paints – pretty self-explanatory.

Acrylic Paint A.MIG-0079 – Clay Brown
Acrylic Paint A.MIG-0085 – NATO Brown



One Oilbrusher set.



This has an integrated brush inside the lid that may be used to apply dirt and mud effects to very specific areas.

Oilbrusher A.MIG-3522 – Medium Soil



Wet Effects will allow you to maintain a glossy wet look to specific areas of mud and dirt.

Wet Effects A.MIG-2015

There are many interesting weathering possibilities in this box. You’ll have fun experimenting with all sorts of mud and dirt application techniques. I know that I will!
