Default Paint Questions

We're getting ready to host our first Scenario Game in the Eastern WA area. NPS is coming asn this is their very first scenario as well. They are bringing whatever paint we ask for and we're looking to limit it to two or three types. Here's what we're looking at:

Heat $37.00
Bullets $41.00
Formula 13 $41.00
Engage $43.00
Ramp $45.00
Inertia $46.00

What 2 or 3 types should we have and what info does anyone have on these paint brands being that I haven't shot any of the new empire paint!

If you're wanting to make money at selling paint, I'd stick to only two kinds. A middle of the road paint and a high end paint. That way, people are going to get decent paint, at not too high a price (considering) and you'll come out with a bit-o-pocket change to show the ladies!

With that in mind, I'd probably go with Formula 13 (good fill, nice colors and it keeps it's shape well - I used it for awhile and it's good paint) for the middle of the road stuff, and probably Inertia (I'm assuming it's good high end paint, since it's so expensive. I've never heard of it before!)

The second 3 are the newer emipre paints. I was thinking heat, formula 13, and inertia. See the thing is all of them have the exact same mark up. I don't get more or less depending on which brand they choose. My thinking is that it's a scenario, most people here have A-5's with flatlines. So most of those guys are just gonna get whatever's cheapest. There is probably only 15-20 players even using high end equipment. Also we are talking 19 hours of continuous play time. I'm in favor of the cheaper the better as long as it's good stuff. What's been happening lately in our monthly games is we've opened it up to continuos respawn so as soon as you tag one of your teams flags your right back in. Many people have been shooting 2+ cases over the weekend. Hopefully the Heat will be really good since it's coming straight from NPS to us.
