Look like some good sets. Who do these? I remember they were Mig's stuff. Does he still do them? Or somebody else, as now he runs Ammo? Cheers

Funny how things pop up when you're thinking about them. Does anyone have any experience with these as far as quality goes? I've read complaints here about Mig's quality suffering after he left the company. It's also funny how 502 was carried by Mig Productions, now 502 carries Mig's old pigment line. I have a ton of these and I am someone who sticks with what works. Regards, Eric

I also have a lot of pigments from the old MIG Production and a part does not have a great quality, I have some AK,Ammo and Vallejo and the quality in same cases are better, it would be nice to know if they changed manufacturer or not, but if you look at the quantity and the price the pigments from AK, Ammo and Vallejo are worth more 30-35ml against 20ml and prices change little from BNA models: Ammo 35ml $6.14 AK 35ml $5.79 Vallejo 30ml was $6.14 now $5.02 Abteilung 502 20ml was $6.91 now 5.79 prices in US$

Yes, there are a few pigments I don't have. However, I can't see investing in these sets, before a review. I have never used Mig pigment, but have some from most of the other manufacturers(including a starter set from MicroMark). The only ones I have found to have trouble with are chalk pastels.
