Nope, haven't been using the Contrast line myself. And 75% of the pots I'm using are six+ years old, having purchased them when I first dabbled in the tabletop back in sixth.
I don't really see Contrast significantly decreasing my paint time, since I'm already managing a respectable output in that regard. Yeah, she took me six hours to complete but honestly this mini is busy with small detailing (Like all the various straps tying down gear). I'm just kind of glad I decided to tackle that detailing, and I'm finding a good marriage between my Mournfang Brown and Rhinox Hide pots. Though if I had it to do over again, I'd probably reverse the color scheme on the bedroll in front - Rhinox Hide for the straps and Mournfang Brown for the roll - since the Hide kind of blends with the Warplock Bronze body of the bike itself.
I also gaffed her face up, but that's more me being impatient - I dabbed a bit too much glue down and it pooled, which I then went over with my brush while painting the head. Thankfully the Sniper Rifle covers most of it - and that Rifle gave me a merry chase after deciding to fall onto the floor, prompting a frantic search for where it landed.
I still remain rather in awe of the Shades though. It's amazing how a once-over with Nuln Oil and Agarax Earthshade can make an otherwise kind of flat color scheme pop and come to life.
EDIT: Looks like the Jackal Alphus wasn't enough for me. This was how I spent my morning:
I'm still leery about detailing faces, but overall I'm happy with how my Primus turned out.
